Kindle to pay for Fanfiction Stories

If you've yet to hear about this, get ready to go wtf!

'Kindle worlds' is a new publishing venture from Amazon that paves the way for fanfiction writers to get royalties from their stories.

Remember all those people that said fanfiction was a waste of time, the ones that said "why bother", well now you know why you bothered!!

Visit our forums for the full story.

From Cnet:

Unveiled Wednesday, Kindle Worlds is a new publishing venture from Amazon that promises to reward both writers and the original rights holders for new fiction based on existing stories and characters. Authors who create works of at least 10,000 words in length will receive 35 percent of the net revenue based on the actual sales price, with royalties paid each month. Those who write shorter pieces between 5,000 and 10,000 words will receive a digital royalty of 20 percent of the sales price.

Shipless Fanfiction

Dear HPFF community,

Due to all the arguing around the site, in addition to the massive amounts of inappropriate content posted in the queue lately, we have decided to eliminate ships completely from the archive and forums.

That means NO MORE discussion about ships, pairings, romance, sexual activities, or any other type of romantic interaction. No more blogs, no more status updates. Doing so will result in disciplinary action.

We at Harry Potter Fan Fiction try to create an environment that is accommodating to everyone.

The site rules have been updated to reflect the new changes. The archive rules will be updated in the next few days.

Please continue to enjoy this site free from any romantic drama or debate.

Thank you,

HPFF staff

Edit: Happy Birthday, Fred and George. See you all again next April 1st!
