No, we haven't been hacked by a spambot promising $400 an hour, all by working from home. This is a real thing that's happening!
There are a few caveats, of course. All works have to take place in the "Worlds" licensed by Amazon, which for now includes Alloy Entertainment properties "Gossip Girl" (by Cecily von Ziegesar), "Pretty Little Liars" (by Sara Shepard) and "Vampire Diaries" (by L.J. Smith). Royalties are doled out to both the rights holder and the author; 35 percent of net revenue is paid to the author for works of at least 10,000 words. (There's a lot to unpack here, so be sure to check out the Kindle Worlds author page for all of the pertinent information.)
So, with all that in mind, are you ready to make literally millions (of cents) writing about Blair, Aria and/or Elena? If so, we've got a few prompts to get your creative juices flowing into a frothy fruit punch of the highest literary value. Or something.
Prompt #1: Blair reunites with her long-lost cousin, Clair, and a princess-and-the-pauper scenario ensues.
Prompt #2: Gossip Girl is actually Joaquin Phoenix.
Prompt #3: Under Rufus' tutelage, Dan, Nate and Chuck form a boy band called Richie Riche$ 4U. They get big in China.
"Pretty Little Liars"
Prompt #1: Forget A. The little liars begin receiving texts from Amanda Bynes.
Prompt #2: Ezra and Aria are the last humans on Earth after a dual apocalypse/rapture. They must repopulate the planet.
Prompt #3: All the cell towers in the Tri-State area mysteriously blow up. A resorts to telegrams.
"The Vampire Diaries"
Prompt #1: Katherine and Elena land the lead roles in the long-awaited "Parent Trap" reboot, "Parent Trap: Blood Sisters," with Lindsay Lohan directing.
Prompt #2: Damon and Stefan time-travel to ancient Greece where they're mistaken for gods thanks to their strong jawlines and chiseled abdominal regions.
Prompt #3: Bonnie does...something. Anything, really.
