Has anyone used Inkshares??

I came across a new book publishing site the other day, and I wondered if anyone here has any experience with it or know anyone that does.

The site is called Inkshares (https://www.inkshares.com), and it seems to work similar to the Amazon Worlds concept: Authors pitch their ideas directly to readers, and readers decide if they want to read the novel by pre-ordering. If the novel receives enough pre-orders (threshold seems to be 750), the company publishes the book.

The concept seems to combine crowd-funding with platform-building, and it seems a very interesting model to me. But I would love to hear others’ impressions, especially if they’ve used the company or something similar.


Never heard of the website. This is an interesting concept and would garuntee 750 minimum sales if it succeeds.
