Outsourcing the slush pile?

Category: News

This week sees Killer Reads preview Steven Dunne’s nailbitting debut The Reaper. Steven was one of the first authors to be picked up via HarperCollins own Authonomy.com. On it’s launch Authonomy tasked itself the mission to flush out the brightest, freshest new writing talent around. Some criticised it simply ‘out-sourcing the slush pile’ , however with the publication of Dunne’s debut and Miranda Dickinson’s Fairy Tale of New York pencilled in for November this may dispell some of the initial doubt.

Steven has been chatting over on Authonomy about his writing and route to publication. Killer Reads have also managed to catch up with him and will be posting the results very soon.
