I was going to write a post about Authonomy, the new website from Harper Collins, where unpublished authors can post their WIP and get feedback (and more) while the publisher gets the benefit of having the online community sift through its slushpile to reveal any hidden gems.
But then I got distracted by the name 'Authonomy'.
's good, innit?
So I've come up with some new definitions of my own.
Please feel free to come up with any further suggestions.
Authorgraphic: a book containing both words and illustrations
Authogonal: as above but all the illustrations consist of only right angles
Authordocks: books that don't rock the boat
Authorities: literary experts
Authorisation: permission to write
Authormatic: when the words just flow
Authoritarians: bossy authors
Authornology: books about birds
Authorpaedic: includes books like The Lovely Bones, The Bone Garden and The Bone Collector
Authopteran: insects who write
Authordontists: writers of books you can get your teeth into
Authoptics: the study of writing books that have to be seen to be believed
