Jill and I are happy to announce our first sponsored writing contest, Inkitt’s Novel Writing Contest!
How does the contest work?
Authors can upload their books to Inkitt’s website for free. Yes, for free, no participant fee or anything! As soon as the novel is submitted the authors instantly gain access to a wide variety of readers. The novels that become the most popular among Inkitt’s readers will win the Novel Writing Contest. To enter the contest, authors must not have any works on Inkitt before. All novels must be more than 20k words and be written in English. No fanfiction or short-story collections allowed, but all genres are welcome! You have until the end of March to enter the contest, however, the sooner you submit the higher your chances are at winning.
What do authors win?
The winning authors receive an amazing deal with Inkitt, including a professional cover design and editing. Inkett will run a marketing campaign that will get authors onto Amazon’s Top 100 on the day of the book’s launch. They will also invest at least $6000 into the launch of the winning books and authors will receive 25% of the royalties.
