Many of you have heard about Kindle Worlds by now. But just in case, Kindle Worlds offers indie authors a chance to write fan fiction and publish it on Amazon. This enables you to write about your favorite music, movie, TV show, and video game.
The service pays a 35% commission for works comprising of 10,000 words or more, and 20% of shorter items of 5,000 to 10,000 words. This is an exciting opportunity to get your creative juices flowing, especially if you love any particular character, TV show, game or movie.
Amazon have so far secured a license with Warner Bros. for shows like The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars. More shows and licenses are on the way, making this already-awesome opportunity simply irresistible.
Visit the official Kindle Worlds for Authors page for more details, as there are quite a few things you should know before you start writing. These includes the exclusion of pornographic material, offensive content, infringement, excessive use of brands and more.
How do you feel about this? Will it provide a golden opportunity for indie publishers, or is this just a way of filling up the Kindle marketplace with crap?
