Inkshares is announcing its 2018 mystery-thriller contest, which will go on for the next two months. The goal of this contest is to publish at least three fantastic debut novels. 

Over the past two years, Inkshares has cemented its position as a marquee publisher in horror and science fiction. Just last year, Scott Thomas’ Kill Creek was selected by the American Library Association’s advisory committee as the horror book of the year, shortlisted for the Bram Stoker, termed “the horror debut of 2017” by Barnes & Noble, and is in development for television at Showtime. Also last year, Tal Klein’s The Punch Escrow received three starred reviews, earned 3.5 out of 4 stars from USA Today, was termed “the smartest sci-fi read of the summer” by Barnes & Noble, and received a seven-figure film deal at Lionsgate. Both novels have been licensed by the major houses in foreign territories alongside significant five-figure advances.

Inkshares is passionate about representing the most talented debut novelists. They are particularly excited about this mystery-thriller contest. They recently released Christopher Huang’s A Gentleman’s Murder, in July, which received a starred review from Publishers Weekly and is in development for television at Endeavor Content with the former heads of HBO and Showtime.

Here is a link to the trailer for the contest.

Here is a letter from the publisher to prospective authors.
