Inkshares Partners with Sword & Laser For Publishing Contest


In April, the independent crowdfunding publisher Inkshares announced a contest in partnership with the book club/podcast Sword & Laser, looking to further their mission to democratize book publishing. The contest, which ended May 31, selected the five books in the science fiction and fantasy genre that had the highest number of pre-orders, as well as the five books with the highest unique reader counts. This means a total of six books will be published by the company, with the authors receiving coaching from author Gary Whitta, the co-writer of Star Wars: Rogue One.
