For those who didn't get an email (I know some don't for some reason)...
We are rapidly approaching the halfway mark of 2012 and what a busy year it has been! Here in London, we've already survived the treacherous rains during the Jubilee and the Olympic madness is just around the corner. With so much going on out there, it's always great to turn to the comforts of authonomy bookshelves and find so many quality manuscripts.
With this in mind, we are proud to announce the acquisition of a new manuscript that caught the eye of our Digital Project Director, Scott Pack last year. The Lighthouse, by Jodie James (aka Millie J), is a fun romantic novel involving a wedding chapel, a funeral parlour and a very dishy Irishman. Need I say more?
Actually, yes, I do need - we need your help to make Jodie's book the best it can be, which is why we're launching a July competition all about this acquisition. For details on how you can be involved, check out the news section below.
The authonomy team
A book's title is just as important as its cover - these are the first things you notice, whether you're shopping for an ebook or a physical book.
Jodie James' brilliant women's fiction needs a name that really does the story justice. And, we want you to help us choose it! We're inviting authonomy authors to use their creative minds and suggest a fitting title for Jodie's book.
The winning submission will win its creator a brand new bookshelf: 20 of HarperCollins' best titles from the genre of their choice. Oh, and may just see their title gracing the shelves of bookstores. Oh, and they may just see their suggestion gracing the shelves of bookstores in a few month's time.
- Send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org
- All entries must be submitted before UK midnight July 13th
- The subject line needs to include the words Title Competition and your suggested title - e.g. 'Title Competiton: Little White Wedding chapel
- 'Please put your details in the body of the email.

Well I've had this book on my shelf for quite some time! So I am pleased at least, that I have an eye for a good book!
Interestingly, she only has 23 backers! Appalling or what!
Well done Jodie James! Posted: 21/06/2012 13:01:08Last Edit: 21/06/2012 13:04:52 by La Marmonie
