Kindle Worlds is one of Amazon’s newest projects. It’s one that has caused a lot of debate among authors; some authors love the idea while others think it’s a horrible idea and a waste of time.

I was excited about Kindle Worlds when I first heard about it, because two of my favorite shows are in Kindle Worlds. I couldn’t wait to start writing in the Vampire Diaries world!
In fact, I signed up for the updates from Amazon so that I would be alerted immediately when Kindle Worlds opened up. Thankfully, I heard about it opening up on a message board that I frequent because otherwise I would still be waiting for that email from Amazon! Seriously.
