Sci-fi and fantasy site Nerdist is teaming up with crowd-driven publishing platform Inkshares for the second year in a row for six book publishing contests.
This year Nerdist and Geek & Sundry are running these publishing contests over the next year in order to build out their imprint with new science fiction and fantasy works. Each contest will seek books with a specific theme. The theme of the first contest is “Space Opera”. Here are more details from the contest page:
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.
