Me again. Just checking in with a few comments and updates. If you have any questions then feel free to ask them here and I will do my best to answer them.
We held our first Twitter Q&A earlier in the month. It ran for an hour and you can probably still find it if you search for #authonomychat. I thought it went rather well with a whole range of Qs being chucked my way which I did my best to A. We will certainly have another one in February.
I don’t think anyone is happy with the way the forums work at the moment. We have had some issues with our moderation tools but we are implementing fixes this week which we will test in the coming days. If they work then it will make it a lot easier to clamp down on abuse and other unpleasantness but also avoid the unnecessary deletion of threads. We have sorely tested your patience on this issue but I do ask you to bear with us while we sort it out.
As mentioned in my last blog post, I do pop into the forums on occasion but that’s not the best way to engage me in conversation.
I am always happy for people to contact me via my profile in Authonomy (bigmouth) but just a reminder that a) I do not respond to requests to read work (otherwise that’s all I’d be doing) and b) sending me a message about a technical problem you have with the site is pretty much the slowest way to get it fixed, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with those sorts of issues.
The Authonomy Imprint
Our aim with the imprint is to publish an ebook a month. It is going to take us a while to get up to speed, mainly as we do want to give the titles a professional edit, but once we are you will be seeing a new Authonomy title every month and, we hope, a number of these will become print books as well.
Next time I will give you an update on stuff I have been reading both on and off the site.
