Starting August 1st, Ink Smith Publishing is starting our first annual Book Publishing Awards. These awards will focus on three genres and their sub genres.
Why should you enter into the Book Publishing Awards instead of waiting for general book submissions to reopen?
Our general submissions run for a short amount of time every year. At that time, authors with books in all genres are welcomed to submit their query. From open to close, we receive thousands of submissions in multiple genres. Which makes competition fierce. Out of our general submissions, we will sign contracts with about 4-6 authors.
With our genre specific book publishing awards, the entrants will not be competing against as many submissions.
The ISP 2015 Book Publishing Awards are meant to be a straightforward opportunity for dedicated and passionate authors with extraordinary work to get published.
You can post any questions you may have below.
More posts to come. Stay Tuned.
Enter the 2015 ISP Book Publishing Awards now to take advantage of this exciting opportunity to have your book considered for cash prizes, awards, exposure, and possible representation by a leading publishing company.
July is Ink Smith Publishing’s Anniversary month. We started in July 2012. Our initial goal was to publish the best in Fantasy Fiction, Science Fiction and Horror. However that quickly changed. After several great submission in genres ranging from Comedy, Paranormal and Thrillers, we changed what we were looking for to one simple thing, a well written and developed book that readers couldn’t put down. That’s why in our catalog you will see a wide range of genres.
Starting today, we are offering select ebooks on Amazon.com for free! This offer will go from July 23rd to 27th. Don’t miss out!
Starting August 1st 2015, we will begin our first annual submission contest. This year, we are looking for books in the genres of Fantasy, Sci-fi and Horror. We will be selecting one winner for each genre.
Chase will be giving 20 businesses the opportunity they’ve need to grow, a grant.
Ink Smith Publishing and Native Ink Press are two small and small independent yet traditional publishing companies. We support and dedicate our authors to grow both as individuals and in books sales. We stand for more than just the bottom line. Many of our authors also get experience working with us in the field, such as cover artists, formatting and more. We are more than just a publishing company; we are the future of what this industry should be.
Due to our recent growth, we are now able to provide editors for our authors to work with. Our editors focus on more than just the book. They work on teaching the author techniques for any future novels.
Most recently, we are now able to provide our authors with book covers that are more than just basic.
It is these small, but continual growths that the grant would help us with.
So please vote for us! We need less than 90 at this point. Your support would mean the world to us!
Last year Ink Smith Publishing experienced Wondercon for the first. It was an absolutely wonderful experience. Book sales and networking were the best we had ever experienced.
So this year, we decided to up our situation. We now have a large, 10×10 booth centered towards the entrance.
A 10×10 booth can’t just have a few books and a table, we have to create a larger image.
So where do I (Ashley) start?
It’s the question I’ve been asking myself for a few weeks now. I want to get every detail correct! When we first started this journey for 2015 I had several authors planning on attending. Now it’s myself and a few Ink Smith minions.
Which is completely fine! We will be bringing all our books to the show, including Native Ink Press. All our authors will get as much attention with out having to drive or fly to California.
Next week is inventory week. I will be determining which books will be a show special due to the large quantity in the warehouse and who will be featured.
I have also ordered some other items to sell in the booth in the hopes of attracting all attendees! Hopefully they will arrive in time….
We are pleased to announce that we will be open for submissions once more! Our submission reading period will start February 1st 2015 and run until July 2015. Any submission submitted before or after these dates will be read during the next submission reading period.
Please review our guidelines before submitting as they have changed.
