Author obsessed. Reader-powered. We find hidden talents and turn them into globally successful authors. Find out how you can get published when you upload your book to Inkitt.
We’re crazy about shining a spotlight on talented authors. That’s why we’ve developed a fair way of discovering writers by giving them a platform to showcase their books to the world, and get published through the power of reader feedback.
Once you create your Inkitt account and upload your book, you have started the process of getting selected for an Inkitt publishing deal! The process is simple; we analyze reader patterns and engagement on your book to determine if it has bestseller potential.
When we find a bestseller, our publishing team reaches out to you about getting signed. No barriers to entry. No biases. It’s publishing made fair.
Where does Inkitt publish my work?
We do things differently, and that doesn’t stop at publishing. When we discover your work, we will contact you with an offer to sign a publishing contract. This means that your work will first be adapted to be published on our sister app, GALATEA, and could later then be published in other formats (e.g, print, ebook, etc).
What is GALATEA?
GALATEA is Inkitt’s sister app and the world’s fastest-growing reading app with hundreds of thousands of active users consuming over six million episodes per month.
GALATEA is shaping the future of reading to better suit the digital age. Working with a production team consisting of writers and sound designers, GALATEA adapts original Inkitt stories into immersive experiences by enhancing them with chat fiction, sound effects, visual effects and haptic feedback.
When your work is published on GALATEA, your readers will be fully immersed in it – feeling every aspect of the plot – from the beat of your protagonist’s heart, to the music and sound effects that perfectly enhance the scene at their fingertips. Keeping avid readers hungry for more, storytelling has never been more exciting than on GALATEA.
How does the GALATEA publishing process work?
Once you sign with us, our publishing team offers you a guiding hand throughout the entire process. Here is what your journey to become a published GALATEA author will look like:
GALATEA will adapt your story in 1 – 2 months. You are paid royalties for your work on a quarterly basis (you can read about royalties in more detail by reading our publishing contract).
What does ‘adapting’ my story to fit GALATEA mean?
As GALATEA is a one-of-a-kind immersive fiction app, we know exactly how to give people the best reading experiences when using it.
After signing a publishing contract, you will meet our team of professional writers who will work on making your story fit better with how GALATEA users behave and read on the app. This is what we mean when we say that we will ‘adapt’ your story to fit GALATEA.
Everything about the adaptation process is openly discussed and explained up front, making sure you are involved in every aspect; from signing the contract to storyboarding and editing, right down to seeing your story live on the app!
Better yet, our writing team will take care of adaptation, proofing and rewriting your story to transform it into immersive fiction, making the publishing process easy and stress-free for you as an author.
How much can I earn as a GALATEA author?
Top authors stand to earn up to $14,000 monthly from publishing their work on our app. As GALATEA is a young app that is growing fast, authors with published work are seeing their royalties increase every month.
What do GALATEA authors think?
“Publishing through Galatea first and foremost brought my stories more exposure. I got new readers who invested their time into my stories on Galatea to the extent of them finding my Inkitt profile to read my other stories. Galatea also provided me with information about how my readers take to my stories, something that I wasn’t as aware of before, and it makes me so happy to know people all over the world support me through Galatea.”
“So, as an author, you may have expectations for your book, and then you have some delightful surprises that come along the way. I think other authors will agree with me here in that Galatea is definitely one of those surprises. I never imagined my book being on a platform like this before, and it’s a beautiful thing to see it come to life with the soundtrack and sound effects. What this boils down to is a thank you to the Galatea team on my behalf. I’m super amped to try and get more books onto Inkitt and hopefully onto Galatea as well.”
