R.I.P. Kindle Worlds (and Nice Witches Don’t Swear)

Before I even start this rant, let me acknowledge that I know Amazon doesn’t care, that Amazon will make decisions for Amazon’s own good, that I’d be an idiot to think Amazon would ever act to benefit authors if there’s a chance Amazon would be harmed by such action.   That said…   Yesterday, Amazon announced that it’s pulling the plug on Kindle Worlds, the fan fiction platform that’s been in place for...
