Well, this is a turn up for the books - I've been criticised!!!

Was just on the way out of the door last night to have a few jars with a pal when up popped an email from Harper Collins' authonomy, the would-be author's peer-review Web 2.0 gadget thingy, saying that my 'crit' from an HC editor was ready.

For those who were interested, kind, supportive, curious and generally wonderful about the whole authonomy thing, my heartfelt thanks to you all.

For those who would like to see what HC said, it's here. They didn't take any of the books that came top 5 this month as, indeed, they haven't taken any book that's topped out on authonomy so far. Having said that, the journey has taught me much and I'm deeply glad I did it.

Normal service will now be resumed.

Iget knocked down, but I get up again. Actually you got a stack more words from HC than any other bugger, so I'd take that as a promising sign. 'Non-PC' - borrocks. And comedy sci-fi is a hard-sell, also borrocks, methinks. Well done, matey. Proud of ya.

The link to the critique doesn't work for me. Did you take it down?
