Harper Collins has launched this site 'Authonomy' for writers and publishers alike to help see if there is a market for their work. I thought some of you mind find it worth a look:

http://www.authonomy.com/

The Writer's Beware blog had an entry today (or yesterday?) about it: they've got some more information, and discuss previous things of this kind. http://accrispin.blogspot.com/2008/09/victoria-strauss-authonomy-slushkiller.html. It's a handy blog in general if you're interested in writing: it discusses some common kinds of scams and other issues as well as some publishing news.

(The summary? This is one of the better designed of its kind, but there are some flaws, and the whole approach doesn't have a great long-term success rate. That said, Harper Collins isn't charging, and they've got some interesting steps, and if you're interested, it's perhaps worth trying if it fits your overall goals.)

I actually saw this quite a while ago--thanks for reminding me of it! I think they've got some kinks to work out, but it is a beta version after all. Other than that, looks really interesting.

Whee!  I've been itching for a look at this for a long time, but I had the impression you were keeping it under your hat until you were ready.  (Silly me, I should have asked you instead of drawing assumptions from impressions.)  It might be a while before I can read it; I'm still catching up on my online stuff and today's theme for me at TC seems to be "here, have a book" (or portions thereof).

It appears I can read it fine, but have to register to comment (and, I'm guessing, do rating-type stuff).

Oh, I was under the impression you had to register.  Even better!

And yes, all you had to do was ask.  Not sure why I didn't offer. Wink

Possibly because I've never directly explicated (thought I'd been clear about it, but maybe not):  I'll read anything you write (well, probably not grocery lists unless you have unusual idiosyncracies in composing them; one grocery list is very like another).  If I'm not your biggest fan, it's because competition for that position is tight here on TC.

Thanks so much for posting this website! What I write is a mixture of fantasy, romance and erotica. My work can have too much fantasy to be classified as a romance and too much erotica to classify as fantasy. I was never sure what genre to market my work as, so this website will help me.

look at Luna books - that's specifically what they publish.  (well, not technically the erotica, but let's face it - the boundary between erotica and romance can be pretty damn blurry!)

Well, it really depends on the level of sex.  I don't read sexless romance (because face it, it's boring) but I do know that erotica doesn't necessarily have to have romance in it at all.

If you want a blurry line, just check out the one between erotica and porn Cheesy

Well, I have written plenty of porn as well. But all of my erotica has romance as well. The romance is central to the plot of any of my writings. There's just a lot of sex between the characters and the sex is rather, shall we say, unconventional.
