Kindle Worlds is essentially fan-fiction—with a far better twist. Contributing authors have been authorized to use elements (characters, settings, plots, names) from the original stories, and they earn royalties on the stories they write. The Kindle Worlds Store contains several hundred stories, written by authors, readers and fans of hit books, TV series and comics, like Blake Crouch’s Wayward Pines, Vampire Diaries, The Lizzy Gardner books and MORE!
Take a quick peek at the Kindle Worlds Store and you’ll see what I mean.
On February 3rd, 2015, Kindle Worlds will launch The Perseid Collapse Series World based on my hit post-apocalyptic books. As a reader, I hope you’ll take the opportunity continue The Perseid Collapse journey with several talented authors. As a writer, I invite you to expand The Perseid Collapse Series World.
As a contributor to Kindle Worlds myself (Wayward Pines and Atlantis: The Origin Mystery), I am keenly aware of the immense satisfaction experienced by taking another author’s world and “running with it.” It’s intensely rewarding on a number of levels, and I’m thrilled to open this the same opportunity within The Perseid Collapse Series.
Post-apocalyptic survival fiction inspires exploration, posing the question “what would you do?” I believe this single question drives the popularity of the genre. From the zombie apocalypse to a solar flare shutting down the electrical grid, we have a fascination with end of the world scenarios—and it has everything to with our own personal survival instinct.
Opening The Perseid Collapse Series will allow fans, authors and new writers to tap into their “inner survivor” in a familiar world, where they don’t have to recreate the setting or characters. They can hit the ground running with their own story.
Keep in mind, you don’t have to be a published author to contribute. Seriously. If you want to try your hand, please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to hear your idea and see how we can bring it to life.
