I’m nearly done with a brand new and very short story (just over 5,000 words) set in the Silo, but having nothing to do with Karma! I’m putting it up in Kindle Worlds, which is an intriguing new feature from Amazon allowing writers to publish stories based on well-known TV shows and best-selling books.
I plan to make Silo Secrets: Daniel available for sale sometime next week. And here is the fabulous cover, designed by the talented cover artist (and author) Jason Gurley, of Greatfall fame:
I’ll let you know when it goes live… I have to finish it first! And if you can write a review, I would be very grateful.
Kindle Worlds is just getting started, but it is showing great promise and affording yet another opportunity for writers. If you’re into Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars… well, let me go grab it from the Kindle Worlds site, so you can see exactly what the possibilities are for both readers and writers:
“Welcome to Kindle Worlds, a place for you to publish fan fiction inspired by popular books, shows, movies, comics, music, and games. With Kindle Worlds, you can write new stories based on featured Worlds, engage an audience of readers, and earn royalties. Amazon Publishing has secured licenses from Warner Bros. Television Group’s Alloy Entertainment for Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, and The Vampire Diaries; Valiant Entertainment for Archer & Armstrong, Bloodshot, Harbinger, Shadowman, and X-O Manowar; Hugh Howey’s Silo Saga; Barry Eisler’s John Rain novels; Blake Crouch’s Wayward Pines series; and The Foreworld Saga by Neal Stephenson, Greg Bear, Mark Teppo, Eric Bear, Joseph Brassey, Nicole Galland, and Cooper Moo. Licenses for more Worlds are on the way.”
And here’s the brand new page for the “Silo Saga” on Kindle Worlds.
I’m looking forward to dipping my toe into Kindle Worlds and seeing what happens. Do check out all the other books there, including stories by Jason Gurley, Michael Bunker, David Adams, Fredric Shernoff, Nocomus Columbus, Will Swardstrom, and Thomas Robins. Great stuff!
I appreciate all the folks who came by for the Summer Blog Hop. Prize winners will be announced soon.
