Hello, hello, HELLO, Lisa Ladew fans! I hope you are all having a
fantastic day! My name is Savan Robbins and Lisa asked me to write a
little something to tell y’all about an AH-MAY-ZING and exciting new
project she has coming up! Can you guess what it is?? No? Then I’ll
Amazon has authorized a Kindle World collection for her One True Mate series!
Isn’t that awesome? Of course it is!!
*record scratch* Ok, so for those of you who are scratching your head
like “Whaaatt??” and have no idea what a Kindle World is, I’ll break
it down for you:
A Kindle World collection is a selection of books that are written by
a group of authors where the characters, circumstances and/or
references are set in another author’s book universe. So, in laymen’s
terms: it’s like fan fiction, written with the author’s permission, by
a bunch of other authors. And it’s epic!! (Lisa’s note, amazon-sanctioned fan fiction.) here’s an example: Celia Kyle’s More than Mated World
For example, I was asked to contribute to the collection (and I am SO
excited, beeteedubs) and the main characters of my book are Mac and
Bruin, aka The Bearmance of the Century. Other authors may choose
other characters from the series proper or they may have brand new
characters. They may also use characters from their own books that
will exist in the OTM universe within their stories or simply
reference information from it. In this, their stories may (and most
likely will) deviate from the actual OTM storyline, because it is an
author interpretation – as none of us live in Lisa’s head, so there’s
NO way any of us could give it justice with complete accuracy. That
and none of us have psychic, mind-reading powers…well, none that I
know of yet, anyway.
So as you read, you may see characters, terms, or circumstances you
recognize as an OTM fan, but they may not line up with the actual
storyline as it already exists, but it is our sincere hope that you
will still enjoy the stories!
Lisa is excited and so are all the authors she hand-picked to be a
part of this fun and awesome project! We are having a great time
writing them and we hope you have just as much fun reading them!
(Lisa’s note: It’s illegal for authors to write stories using other author’s characters, settings, and premises. But Kindle Worlds makes it legal, extends them permission to use my characters and premise, and encourages them to do so.)
NOTE!!!!! Authors do not have control over pricing of books in Kindle worlds, and as of yet they can’t be in Kindle Unlimited, AND, it will be a bit harder for our readers outside of the U.S to get their hands on them. SORRRY! We will have a work around for International readers and hopefully KU is coming.
