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.
