Dare to Love Kindle Worlds

Have you ever read one of my DARE TO LOVE books and thought “I wonder what would happen if ____?”

Kindle Worlds offers you a chance to answer that question by writing your own story within the DARE TO LOVE Kindle World.

Kindle World FAQ

What is Kindle Worlds?

Kindle Worlds is essentially authorized fan fiction for sale. What this means is that I have contracted with Amazon to give other authors permission to write their own story in my series “world.” They can use my setting, my characters to write their own story.

Are you involved in other authors work in your world?

No. I have zero involvement in the writing, publishing, cover design or any other action associated with a story published in the DARE TO LOVE World. Every story published in my world is as new to me as it is to you.

Why aren’t the books available outside of the US or in print?

Kindle Worlds was created and is operated by Amazon. At this time, the stories in KW are not available outside of the US or in print.  Authors outside the US can not write for the world either (at the present time). I’m sorry, I know you are disappointed, but I don’t have any control over that.

Can I write my own story in the DARE TO LOVE world? Do I have to be a published author already?

Yes. You can write you own story in the DARE TO LOVE WORLD as long as you follow the Kindle World and Carly Phillips Rules. You do not have to have ever published a story before.

Do I make money off of my story?

If your story sells copies, then you will make a royalty off of the sale.

More information on the DARE TO LOVE Kindle World can be found at Amazon.

About the Dares

The Dare to Love series revolves around a dysfunctional family –the Dare family … siblings shaped by a father’s secrets and betrayal. The father, Robert Dare, had one family and another on the side. When a child in the illegitimate family needed bone marrow, Robert revealed his other family and asked his legitimate children to be tested. This betrayal by the patriarch of the family affected each child differently, and of course influenced their views on love.

There are three branches of the Dare family:

  1. Ian and his siblings (the “legitimate” family),
  2. Alex and his siblings (the “illegitimate” family)
  3. Gabe and his siblings (the NY cousins): Gabe (Dare to Surrender), Decklan (Dare to Submit) and Lucy (coming in 2015) are all these exceptionally hotter type books while at heart still being a Carly Phillips story.

The Dare Family is large and has three branches. I’m taking a break from the DARES to move on to other fun books and hope to return to the illegitimate Dares in the future!
