If you're a writer of fan fiction then I suggest you also check out: What Fans Should Know About Amazon's Kindle Worlds Program from the Organization for Transformative Works.


Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, June 2, 2013 3:29 AM

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.

 

Very interesting indeed -
