A new avenue for aspiring Christian authors has opened up with the possibility of getting a publisher through a new Christian version of authonomy.com, the Web site that allows readers and publishing professionals to view unpublished manuscripts.
Zondervan and Baker Publishing Group said they would urge authors who sent them unsolicited manuscripts to post them at www.authonomy.com/Christian
Launched by HarperCollins UK in 2008, authonomy.com allows readers to support the work they like best. Zondervan and Baker said they would track the most popular manuscripts and provide feedback to the authors; the site is also open to other publishing houses and to agents.
