Contest for Sci-Fi and Fantasy Authors

inkInkshares, a “crowd-driven publishing platform” has teamed with Nerdist and Geek & Sundry sponsoring a publishing contest. There are actually six contests being held over the year each with a specific theme. Seeking to find new titles for their science fiction and fantasy imprints.

Here are the contest rules:

Today we announce the first of six publishing contests, alternating between our friends atNerdist and Geek & Sundry. Each contest will aim to find a book within a specific theme, to be announced at the launch of each contest (and sometimes before).

The rules will be the same as previous contests. We’re looking for the top three books in terms of unique-reader pre-order counts within the specified time period. For this contest, that means any pre-order placed between February 1, 2016, and March 15, 2016. All three winners will be published by Inkshares even if they haven’t reached their pre-order goal. One (or more) will be selected by Nerdist or Geek & Sundry to be in their collection on Inkshares.

This contest will find the next great… SPACE OPERA!!! We’re thrilled about this for a couple of reasons. At Inkshares HQ we grew up reading Asimov, Herbert, Card, and Heinlein, which sparked our passion for all kinds of books. And then there was that little movie that just came out, what was it again? Oh yeah… STAR WARS, which made us feel like wide-eyed kids all over again.

So if you’ve written or are writing a book about an adventure that takes place in space, we hope you’ll consider submitting to this second Nerdist contest. It just may be the next story to capture the imagination of the world, or better yet, the entire universe.
