Inkitt is a new boutique publishing house. Our first novel launched mid 2016, and since then we’ve published ten books, nine of which became Amazon Best Sellers in their categories. Here are our success stories:
‘Just Juliet‘ is a lesbian, YA romance novel, written by Charlotte Reagan who used the launch of the book to come out publicly. Considered by most publishers as ‘risky’ due to its niche genre, it became an instant best seller after winning Inkitt’s Swoon Contest. ‘Just Juliet’ received more than 100 5-star reviews in 9 days.
