Imagine a world where words are so precious they are only etched into gold. A world where the Medium—an omniscient magic—responds to the subtlest thoughts and controls nature, the past, and the future. In Muirwood Abbey, young mastons learn to read and engrave and dedicate themselves to unlocking the secrets of the Medium. But while the mastons study, outcasts such as Lia are labeled “wretched” and forbidden to read or write, and the mastons have enemies as ancient as themselves who seek their utter ruin through manipulation and murder. In a world where a person’s strength in the Medium depends on one’s family and the use of a deviant amulet, each must decide whether his or her own magic and knowledge will serve the forces of good or evil.

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 Poorly formatted books and books with misleading titles, cover art, or product descriptions will not be published.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. Craft Romance with Intention: We don't accept erotica or any depictions of sexual acts. Please reference the canon to guide you through what is acceptable in this category.
  6. 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.
  7. Create New Stories: We don't accept works that are merely retellings or summaries of works in the World's canon.
  8. Write Where You Have License: The World does not include characters, scenes, events, themes, or plots that are unique to derivative works outside of Kindle Worlds (such as movies and television shows) based on Jeff Wheeler novels, novellas, and/or short stories.
