It’s the year 2147: a time of enduring peace on Earth. The Last War ended half a century ago. We can cure most ills, the air is pure, and teleportation is how we get around. Sounds great, right? So why does everyone suddenly want to kill Joel Byram?

Sell Movie and TV Rights

Sales of movie and TV rights for our books in Hollywood through a partnership with UTA.

Here's how it works:

Sketch out your book idea.

What are you thinking of writing? Have a working title? Can you describe your idea in 20 words or less?

Turn your idea into a draft.

Feel good about your idea? Upload a sample chapter (if you have one). We'll use your writing sample to build your draft page. If you don't have a sample, no problem. You can upload one later or sketch out your draft on Inkshares.

Get feedback.

Do people like your idea? Your writing? Ask readers to help you improve your draft and build a following along the way. Many authors will stop at this step, which is perfectly fine.

Sell Pre-Orders.

When and if you're ready to turn your draft into a book, we'll start to sell pre-orders. You'll run your pre-order campaign from Inkshares. We'll publish your book if you reach your pre-order threshold.

We Publish.

When you reach your pre-order goal, we'll start the publishing process with you. We'll edit, design, print, distribute, and market your book where the intensity of each is based on your goal level. We are your publisher.
