This below is from an email that came to Jacqueline Lichtenberg on January 11, 2016.
I was looking for romance authors on Goodreads, and found your contact through a website link. Here is something you might be interested in:
Inkitt is using data analysis to determine and predict the success of a novel. We are also working together with some of the world’s biggest publishing houses to publish any potential best-sellers we find. We are just about to sign a massive deal for a fantasy book series.
We are now looking for our next novel to publish - this time from the romance genre.
In partnership with the Rebecca Friedman Literary Agency, tomorrow Inkitt is launching a brand new romance writing contest. With a publishing deal and a $500USD prize on the line for the contest winner, this is a huge opportunity for romance authors. The judging panel is made up of bestselling authors Laurelin Page and Melody Grace, as well as literary agent Rebecca Friedman herself.
Here is the contest link:
Even if you are not interested for yourself, you could help many authors by publishing a blog post and by sharing the contest link on social media. This could be someone’s big break in the book world.
I don't know anything about this publisher, but if you have a property in the drawer, you might try it here. Be sure to read the fine print to see when you can market it elsewhere.
