I am not an editor or a writer, in fact I haven't written anything substantial since my Masters' thesis that I suffered through. So, I have the utmost respect for all of you who post your work on this site. I read for fun and I have so enjoyed myself.
If you ask me to read your work, I will check out your long pitch and see if it catches my interest. I don't have my own book so I don't have to worry about looking for backing from others, but if you would read someone's book from my bookshelf instead, I would appreciate it. I love to back the underdog as there are many great books on Authonomy that get overlooked. I typically read in the science fiction, fantasy, or romance genres.
I have found that one of the most agonizing decisions I run into on Authonmy is not what books to back, but what books to take off my shelf when I want to support a new author. Most importantly is how I feel about a book- am I still in love with it? Secondly, is the author still posting chapters? I won't unback if more chapters are being added. And of course did the author thank me for the backing (most do). Also if the author hasn't been on the site for a while, I'll give a chance to someone who is active. So below are some of my previously backed Authonmy favorites!
