Go on Inkshares now and start turning your ideas into reality.
If you haven’t already, check out the Nerdist’s Space Opera contest in conjunction with Inkshares to witness just a taste of the excitement that you can be a part of when you enter. TODAY is the day you can start dreaming about worlds beyond ours or imagining what can happen when science falls into the wrong hands. Head over to Inkshares right now to review the rules and learn how to get your story out there.
Here’s how it all works. Beginning TODAY, writers can submit their pitches and/or sample chapters to Inkshares for consideration and pre-orders. Inkshares will then publish the top three hard science fiction projects with the most unique pre-orders by 12:00 p.m. PST, May 16th. These three will be published by Inkshares with some awesome perks including editorial and design services, printing, marketing, and distribution into bookstores nationwide. Geek & Sundry will then select at least one story to be in our debut Inkshares collection. Your story will get the Geek & Sundry seal of approval (and literal seal, it’ll go right there on your book) and we’ll be sharing out its existence to countless fans around the world! Who knows, you might just discover something that scientists haven’t even thought of yet.
Don’t know if all of your scientific theories necessarily ring true? Not a problem. Science and Entertainment Exchange, the group responsible for fact checking some of your favorite Hollywood movies, is going to give the top winners a hand in making sure their science is solid.
Truth is stranger than fiction. Prove it by applying to Geek & Sundry and Inkshares’s Hard Science Contest TODAY.
