Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

Transmedia Story Stream, the Zynga of ebooks, is a revolutionary platform which blends Facebook video game mechanics with ebooks to allow authors to build, distribute and engage fans in multi-media story worlds. Instead of downloading a static, dead ePub, readers can log onto story worlds that are alive with fans and friendship and earn rewards while reading. Don’t just read a book – play it!

The Fifty Shades Factor: Amazon Gives Fanfic Authors A Shot At A Publishing Payday With Kindle Worlds

The Fifty Shades Factor: Amazon Gives Fanfic Authors A Shot At A Publishing Payday With Kindle Worlds | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Chris Baker:  "Recognizing that the world of fan fiction has produced a bona fide blockbuster, Amazon is now turning fanfic from a grey market to a sanctioned revenue opportunity with Kindle Worlds."

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

A new initiative from Amazon called Kindle Worlds, introduced yesterday, is offering fanfic authors a cut of the sales when their works are published through the program. Amazon’s first partner in this project is Alloy Entertainment, a division of Warner Bros TV Group, which is providing the licenses to the franchises Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, and The Vampire Diaries.
