Beginning in June, fanfiction authors will be able to self-publish their works from selected partner franchises via Kindle Worlds. Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars are already on board with the project and more are expected to be announced the official launch. However, authors aren't exactly jumping at the chance to turn their works into cash: by using the platform, authors give all rights to the work to Amazon, who can then license your elements to other authors with no compensation to the original poster. The platform also will not publish stories containing pornography, excessive use of brand names or crossovers, so your "Superwholock" mpreg (male pregnancy) stories will just have to stay on Tumblr.
