Filing off the serial numbers – your fanfiction to publication

I’ve written another in my occasional series on “fanfiction to publication” over at the SubRosa Writer blog.

In Filing off the Serial Numbers I consider the three main considerations involved in converting your fanfiction to original fiction for publication – and how I don’t think you can or should get away with just changing the names!! Not “if you care about offering quality, well-crafted, rewarding, value-for-money fiction to readers – hopefully for many years to come”.

Please feel free to comment and share your feelings – I’m enjoying writing this series a lot!

About clarelondon

Clare London took her pen name from the city where she lives, loves, and writes. A lone, brave female in a frenetic, testosterone-fuelled family home, she juggles her writing with her other day job as an accountant. She’s written in many genres and across many settings, with award-winning novels and short stories published both online and in print. She says she likes variety in her writing while friends say she’s just fickle, but as long as both theories spawn good fiction, she’s happy. Most of her work features male/male romance and drama with a healthy serving of physical passion, as she enjoys both reading and writing about strong, sympathetic, and sexy characters. Clare currently has several novels sulking at that tricky chapter three stage and plenty of other projects in mind... she just has to find out where she left them in that frenetic, testosterone-fuelled family home. Clare loves to hear from readers, and you can contact her here: Website: E-mail: Blog: Facebook: Twitter: Goodreads: Amazon: Google+ :

  2. I get a 404 when I click on that sub rosa link – it seems the blog doesn’t exist anymore. Maybe you could repost that series here? I’d be interested to read those articles.
