Here’s the blurb from the Nerdist (where I found the contest):
“Beginning August 15, writers can submit their pitches and/or sample chapters to Inkshares for consideration. Inkshares will then publish the top five science fiction and fantasy projects with the most unique reader pre-orders by 12:00 p.m. PST, September 30th. Lastly, we get to choose our favorite book from those five to include in our new Nerdist Collection on Inkshares.
So what does that mean, exactly? Well, any writer can launch a project on Inskhares any time between August 15th and September 30th to be considered. Users/Nerdist fans can vote for the book they want to win by pre-ordering a copy, and Inkshares will publish the top five projects from the contest—even if they haven’t hit their funding goal. All five projects will receive the same editorial, production, distribution, and marketing support as any Inkshares project, including distribution into independent bookstores and Amazon, Apple, and Barnes & Noble.
We will then pick our favorite of the top five and offer the author a chance to be in the Nerdist Inkshares collection. That book would receive Nerdist branding and promotion, an opportunity to develop it into other media such as movies, TV series, and digital productions, and a whole bunch of other fun stuff. Who knows, your book could become the next The Martian or Ready Player One.”
I know the is TL;DR, but if you like the book, pre-order and let’s see if we can get it published! Thank you for your time, and your support, if you so choose.
