How To Buy & Sell Fan Fiction on Amazon

You can now buy and sell fan fiction in Amazon’s newly opened Kindle Worlds Store.

If you want to write and sell fan fiction, the online bookseller has just opened its Kindle Worlds Self-Service Submission platform as well.

You can choose from 12 properties, ranging from Gossip Girl to Vampire Diaries to the Silo Saga to X-O Manowar.

Here’s more about pricing, revenues and royalties.

Amazon Publishing will set the price for most works between $0.99 and $3.99 … Amazon Publishing will pay royalties to both the World Licensors and the author. Your standard royalty rate (for works of 10,000 words or more) will be 35% of net revenue. As with all titles from Amazon Publishing, Kindle Worlds will base net revenue on customer sales price less customer returns, delivery and transmission costs, and excluding taxes rather than the lower industry standard of wholesale price. Royalties will be paid monthly.
