Inkett’s Writing Contest


Hello everyone!

Jill and I are happy to announce our first sponsored writing contest, Inkitt’s Novel Writing Contest!

How does the contest work?

socialAuthors 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.

If you’re interested in entering the contest or want to read up more on it, you can do so here!

What’s New in 2017

Hello everybody, and welcome to 2017!

I just wanted to take a few moments to let everyone know about my plan for this blog in the coming year. First, I will like to announce that a new reviewer, Jill Mardesich, will be joining me on this blog! She is a good friend of mine who loves to read just as much as I do, and she has agreed to help me review more books for this year. For any authors, if you want her to review your work, just email me the request and I’ll pass it on. In general, she has agreed to review any of the work that I am unwilling to review or don’t have the time for, along with her favorite books.

Second, in general this year I hope to review more books, and have a wider selection of reviews for you to read. I plan on reviewing more comics and manga in between author requests, along with reading more children’s and middle reader books.

This is my last year of college, so please bear with me as free time may become a bit sparse. Hopefully, with Jill on board this blog will become a little livelier. I hope everyone enjoys this year!

Good luck and may the odds be in your favor.

Notice: Temporary Hiatus

Hello everyone!

I am terribly sorry to inform anyone reading this that I am currently on hiatus. I have only a week and a half before I start finals, so that means all of my professors are assigning last minute homework-boo! Most of my free time has been eaten away by final projects and studying and will continue to dwindle as the semester comes to a close. Any free time that I do have is spent cleaning, eating, sleeping, and packing because I’m leaving university housing after this semester…yay! Anyways, I probably won’t have any reviews posted until after I get home after the first week in May. Until then, I won’t be posting anything but I will still accept book review requests that appear in my email, just be aware that the list is rather long now and I won’t get a start on it until my summer officially begins. I hope to read during this hiatus, but I can’t even promise myself that! To anyone else who is taking their exams now or soon: Good Luck! And I will be posting again in May! 🙂
