Write your own ‘fan fiction’ and Amazon will help make you some cash

Amazon has announced that fan fiction authors will be able to sell some of their work on the firm’s Kindle e-book platform. Fan fiction is literature inspired by popular books, films and TV shows, written by enthusiasts. Publication outside of blogs and online fanzines is often difficult because of copyright issues. A deal with a TV division of Warner Brothers enables fan fiction based on three TV series to be self-published. The three series are Gossip Girls, The Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars, under the arrangement between Amazon and Alloy Entertainment, owned by Warner Brothers Television Group. Authors will be able to upload their writing for sale via a new platform called Kindle Worlds, which will initially only be available in America. There is no launch date yet for the platform.

Like most people one day Wesley will die. Until then though, Wesley spends his days drinking coffee, watching the telly,trying to figure out politics and listening to BBC Radio... and on the days he is at work watching trains under the ground. Away from work he putters around in the kitchen, tends to his fish, watches films and occasionally reads a book, or works in his garden. Wesley is also a keen father to his two little princesses, and a slave to his wife.
