Here's what a few of our authors had to say about Kindle Worlds:

"This was downright fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants, take-chances, go-places-you've-never-been fun. It reminded me of being a kid: reading comics and just living in a completely different reality for a while. Archer & Armstrong are great characters, worlds away from what I usually write. I felt I could take chances, do things differently, and simply have a good time going where the story took me." —Carolyn Nash, writing in Archer & Armstrong

"I love challenges that can take my writing in new directions, and it was blast to write a story set in the Valiant universe, with themes and characters that don't normally appear in my writing. I also enjoyed writing from the point of view of a teen and preteen character." —Jason Starr, writing in Harbinger

"This writing style is something I've been doing for years, though the world is very different with the ghosts and the powers. I just dug in and—hopefully—did some of the writing I do best. I know I had a good time." —Mel Odom, writing in Shadowman and The Foreworld Saga

"I loved having the chance to handle such highly charismatic characters as Archer & Armstrong while also indulging in a few of my own personal favorite genres: bawdy Elizabethan hijinks, court intrigue, and medieval Japanese espionage." —Robert Rodi, writing in Archer & Armstrong

"I loved writing the characters in this world, the dynamics of the friendship between the four girls as they deal with life-threatening situations. I also really enjoy the ongoing mysteries and surprising twists that always keep the reader guessing." —Barbara Freethy, writing in Pretty Little Liars

"There's probably not an author/fangirl alive who hasn't fantasized about being able to write about her favorite show. The fact that you can earn royalties doing so makes it even better." —Trish Milburn, writing in The Vampire Diaries

"The opportunity to cut loose and play with the wit and voice of a character so unlike those I usually write was a real treat. It pushed me outside my normal comfort zone as a storyteller, and that's a very valuable experience." —Joseph Brassey, writing in The Vampire Diaries

"I really enjoyed the short format of this work. I'm a novelist. I'm used to writing books that take me months to complete. Writing something start to finish in such a short time was really rewarding." —Nancy Naigle, writing in Pretty Little Liars

"Fun from beginning to end! It was freeing to write something about the show's characters and world." —Carolyn Hughey, writing in Gossip Girl

"I loved having so many intriguing characters to explore. They're all unique with so much backstory, yet there's just enough space to create something new. When I realized I could create my own characters to toy with the others, well, that was icing on the cake." —A.R. Kahler, writing in The Vampire Diaries
