Discovering Kindle Worlds…

So I was trailing through Amazon (I have an unhealthy need to spend money) and I came across Kindle Worlds? Anyone else heard of it?

Well if not; apparently since approx. 2013, if you write in a specific fandom (listed somewhere in the T&C’s) you can now publish and SELL FanFiction…

I’m very confused right now. Most publishers kind of love to hate us, right? They love the money we bring into fandoms, but we’re basically that crazy aunt no one talks about.

As usual it comes down to money. ‘We’ sell it to run ‘our’ sites, blogs, fanzines etc… and they make the bulk revenue AND they have the right to take your ideas if you publish!!!

Another odd one? LJ Smith of TVD, now publishes the rest of the series there as CW fired her!

I’m just too weirded out by the idea of selling FanFiction.

That RT Challenge I Failed

Hosted by Rough Trade, the Little Black Dress Challenge is designed to encourage writers to develop and hone their short story writing skills. The challenge is:

….3 Short Stories (10 to 15k) in 31 days. 3 Different Fandoms fused with The Sentinel…


The idea that the Sentinel is the little black dress of fandom. Participants must write a fusion of the Sentinel and their chosen fandom for each short story.

Unfortunately due to RL obligations I had to back out of the ‘Little Black Dress Challenge’ hosted by Keira on RT.

Below are the 3 that I had planned out complete with Banner/Artwork.

These are not completed fic, but an outline of what I was going to attempt and may someday finish or delete. Right now they are a WIP and a reminder of not to over extend myself.
