Jason Gurley, author of Greatfall, has put together an interesting article on Medium.com about all the folks who write stories set in or around the WOOLiverse. The piece includes commentary by Hugh Howey and a number of other writers, including me, about “fan fiction,” the future of this growing franchise and the new program by Amazon known as Kindle Worlds, which is expected to launch within a few weeks. WOOL has been added as one of the properties in which others will officially be allowed to write and sell books, and those of us who have already been writing Silo stories — which have sold an incredible 30,000 copies combined as of last week — are watching this development with great anticipation.
I urge you to check the article out and let me know what you think about fan fiction as well as Amazon’s plans.
In the meantime… look for Karma #4, Rising Up, by this weekend. w00t! Or as we like to say, w00L! If you haven’t read the first three in the series, here they are, in order:
Karma #1, The Sky Used to be Blue
Karma #2, Cleaning Up
Karma #3, Deep Justice
I’m out of the country for a good bit of July, so the fifth and final book in the Karma series, Last Walk, may not be released until later in the summer. I’ll be watching to see how the Kindle Worlds announcement impacts the possibilities for that book and for the compilation of all the Karma stories into one big novel… whose title I keep messing with, but which I’m currently calling Karma, Complete.
