Website The Nerdist Set to Launch Collection & Sci-Fi/Fantasy Contest on Inkshares

Inkshares, a start-up crowdfunded book publisher, announced today that the Nerdist, a website, YouTube Channel, and podcast network founded by comedian and television personality Chris Hardwick, will be launching a collection on its crowdfunding platform.
The NerdistThis collection will include books published under the Nerdist name, targeted at the Nerdist audience. Authors in the Nerdist collection will also have opportunities to develop their work into other media such as movies, TV series, and digital productions.

As part of this launch, Inkshares is running a contest to find the next great science fiction/fantasy writer from the Nerdist community. The top five science fiction and fantasy Inkshares projects as determined by unique reader counts by September 30th will be published, even if they haven’t hit their pre-order goal. Of those five, the Nerdist will select one to be in their collection, receiving Nerdist branding and promotion.

Founder and CEO of Inkshares, Jeremy Thomas, stated:

Jeremy Thomas“Inkshares takes a democratic approach to publishing by having readers select what we publish. We couldn’t be more excited to have a community as big and passionate as the Nerdist championing for writers among their ranks to get their big break through this contest.”

Hardwick added:

“So much of our audience is made up of creators, and we are constantly encouraging people to ‘just do the thing you are passionate about,’ that I feel that it is imperative to use the Nerdist platform that we have built along with them to help broadcast their work to the world. This will be a great way for us to do that with writers, whom we made sure will get a much better revenue share with Inkshares than if they had gone through traditional publishing.”
