Hi there! I see you have plenty of space on your book shelf, so it'd be silly of me not to ask you to take a look at my humble offering! It's far better than this message, so you'll be improving your reading experience just by giving it a try!

Venom Of The Malice Striker is a Historical Fiction novel. In 1348, the last Viking journeys out of exile and into Christendom in search of a cure for the Black Death; what he finds is Ragnarok.

Here's the trailer to whet your appetite:

If you feel it's worth your backing, I'd really appreciate your support.

Hello Phillip, I would like to ask for your support for my book, Mr. and Mrs. Grassroots. It is the true story of the early years of President Barack Obama. I hope you enjoy it. Mr. Grassroots.

Hi there

Please help! I’ve fallen from position 4 to 5! After the grueling climb to the top, I don’t want to fall of the desk and have to wait another month for a review! I need the madness to stop. So I am humbly asking that you take a look at my YA fantasy novel The Awakening and if you like it, give it some shelf space for as long as you can. If you think any friends on the site you feel would like it too, please please recommend it. I will help any of those I can after my review.

All the best

I saw that you joined a couple months ago and wanted to say HI! Also I was wondering if you wanted to help each other out and back each others books (I am new to the site. I have been on for 3 days now.) All you have to do is click Add to my bookshelf and leave it there for at least 24 hours, the longer the better =) If you back mine, I will back yours also, although it may be a day or two later (because I have promised others to leave there book on my shelf for 24 hours.)

A sinking ship, a floating chest, a boy alone, a bitter end... but was it really the end? Find out when you read: The End Pursuit of Juggelby Bungleton, by J. O'Maille.

Hi Philip

I joined Authonomy in November and in treading the fine line between promoting my work and being a pest I am hoping to find some genuine support for my story ‘Isabel’. It is about a boy who, whilst in a coma-induced dream, has a wild adventure on a strange island with a girl he believes to be real.
Please don’t feel obliged to read it if it’s not your thing but any honest feedback is much appreciated!
Kind regards, Karen Rosario

Mr. Swan,
My name is Sean M. Bazaar and currently new to the sight. I'm not here for ratings for my book, but rather just feedback. I don't ask for the stars and shelves and all that other stuff, as I have noticed a lot of people are here for. So if you find time I ask you to please give my work a glance. Please bear in mind that it has yet to be edited. My book is titled The Fallen. Thanks and have an awesome day.

Hi Philip, I have a book aimed at the teenager audience. My goal is to try to refine the book for self-publishing. If you find time might you give it a look. I accept all critiques and will return the favor if you so desire. Best wishes.

Dear Philip,

I love the suspense in your pitch of a private investigator & a serial killer & I have gold ******-rated your book, "Sleeping Earth and Waking Moon" :) - could you please ****** & back my memoirs/testimony book, in return? :) Thank you from the bottom of my heart. :) I have also put your book on my watchlist to read & to at least 24 hours back when space opens on my bookshelf. :) There are some evil mean people on authonomy & one man doesn't even have a book on authonomy, copy/pasting, "Hi and welcome to Authonomy," then bad-mouthing me & saying, along with a female, that I am not at least 24 hour backing books - authonomy "Contact Us" at the bottom of this page will verify me, as will authors whose books I have on my bookshelf. :) Click on my name to read my profile page & my lupus/illnesses & being homebound & needing help, too. :)

I will comment on your book after I have read it. :)

Love, Susie :)
p.s. every ******-ing & at least 24 hour backing moves our books up the authonomy lists :) - click on author's name, scroll down their profile page, click on their book cover or title :) - & you are on your way :)
None of this message is copy/pasted & is arduously written my best from my heart. :)

Dear Philip, I hope you don't mind, but I was wondering if you may have the time, to take a look at my book, [ I am not begging for backings, truly ], my intentions towards the ED desk thingy! Are somewhat futile, until I win my fight against demonic punctuation, but I was more interested in comments or criticism as to the style of my writing. But only if you have the time. I do hope I haven't bothered you, but I wish you all the very best for the future. Take care and thank you, Cicuta, [ Carl, Arcane ].

Hi Philip,

I'm here looking for your consideration of "Savannah Passion," a contemporary southern suspense currently residing among the top five books on Authonomy.

Would you please review "Savannah Passion" critically and see if it meets your criteria for inclusion on your bookshelf?

In the spirit of the 'new' Authonomy, there is no reward for shelving "Savannah Passion" other than the satisfaction of knowing you are supporting a quality book on the Authonomy list.

Thank you for your consideration.
