Publishing isn’t just about great books, it’s about great people building a supportive community around writing. That’s what makes sites like Twitter, Wattpad and Authonomy so good to be a part of.
Today we’re launching a competition to not only celebrate great writing, but great reviewing.
Write a review that you think is just top notch, and you will be in with a chance to get not only that book noticed by a HarperCollins editor, but your book too.
To enter, you simply need review an Authonomy book and share your comment with us on the blog as well as the book. The review can be long and detailed or short and snappy, lyrically positive or critical but instructive; we’ll be picking a winner based on the quality of the review.
The review should make us want to read the book, but don’t be afraid to be constructive.
A HarperCollins editor will review at least the first chapter – or up to 2,000 words – of both the reviewer’s book and the reviewed book.
This is your chance to recommend a book you think is worth a look, AND get your own onto an editor’s desk.
What you need to do
- Read and review a book on Authonomy. The review must be published between 14th and 31st October. You cannot enter using a review written before this date, but you can re-review a book you’ve previously reviewed.
- Post your review in the comments for the book and in the comments section of this blog post. Please also tell us the title and author of the book you are reviewing and the author name and title of your own book.
- Repeat. You can enter as many times as you like, but entrants who repeat their reviews, or write very similar reviews on each book, will not count.
- The winners will be announced on 10th November.
Let the reading commence!
