The Abnorm Chronicles

Based on Marcus Sakey’s Brilliance saga, The Abnorm Chronicles take place in an alternate present, a world very much like our own—except for the fact that one percent of the population have astonishing gifts. Known as brilliants, they possess savant-like abilities: the most powerful can intuit patterns in the stock market, deduce the deepest secrets only from observing body language, or become virtually invisible. Brilliants are speeding the progress of science and technology, but their very existence poses a threat to the other 99 percent of us.

Content Guidelines

Be sure to read and follow the Content Guidelines while writing your story. Your story will be reviewed and will only be eligible for publication if the Content Guidelines are followed. See our Help pages and the Most Common Failures for more information.

  1. Respect the Rights of Others: We take violations of laws and proprietary rights very seriously. It is your responsibility to ensure that your content complies with all laws and does not violate the copyright, trademark, privacy, publicity, or other right of any other person. The use of unauthorized third party intellectual property (including but not limited to characters, logos, or lyrics) is prohibited.
  2. Create High-Quality Works: An excellent customer reading experience is paramount to Kindle Worlds. Poorly formatted books and books with misleading titles, cover art, or product descriptions will not be published. We reserve the right to determine whether content provides a poor customer experience.
  3. Promote Your Creative Vision: Your writing and vision should be the focus in your Kindle Worlds fiction. Paid advertising or excessive use of brand names is prohibited.
  4. Cultivate One World at a Time: We don't permit crossovers from other Worlds, meaning your work may not include elements of any copyright-protected book, movie, or other property outside of the elements of this World.
  5. Choose Your Words with Care: Offensive content is prohibited, including but not limited to racial slurs, excessively graphic or violent material, or excessive use of foul language.
  6. Craft Romance with Intention: Sexual content, including erotica, is permitted, but we don't accept pornography or offensive depictions of graphic sexual acts.
  7. Design a Unique Cover and Pick an Original Title: Your Kindle Worlds story is not permitted to include a title or cover that is the same as or is misleadingly similar to any title or cover in this World or author's canon. Specifically, no Fan Fiction Edition title will include the word "Brilliance" or any derivation thereof.
  8. Stay Within the World's Scope: This World does not include characters, scenes, events, themes, and/or plots that are unique to derivative works ((such as movies or television shows) based on The Abnorm Chronicles novels, novellas, and short stories.
