Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN)’s Kindle Worlds Just Got More Exciting

At the same time, Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) will also release a self-service submission platform for Kindle Worlds, providing an easy way for any writer to submit his or her own completed work. And remember, Amazon is paying a standard royalty rate of 35% of revenue for works of at least 10,000 words, and 20% for shorter stories between 5,000 and 10,000 words. The rest, of course, will be split between Amazon and its licensors.

Foolish takeaway
In the end, my hat’s off to Amazon for so quickly fulfilling its promise to writers to bring more content to Kindle Worlds.

Of course, it certainly wasn’t an entirely selfless pledge. By extending its already-in-place publishing platform and taking the nitty-gritty licensing details out of the equation for fan-fiction writers, Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) has intelligently created a fantastic, low-overhead source of new revenue with absolutely massive potential going forward.

But while everyone knows Amazon is the king of the retail world right now, at its sky-high valuation, most investors are worried it’s the company’s share price that will get knocked down instead of its competitors’. The Motley Fool’s premium report will tell you what’s driving the company’s growth, and fill you in on reasons to buy and reasons to sell Amazon. The report also has you covered with a full year of free analyst updates to keep you informed as the company’s story changes, so click here now to read more.
