I am not sure if I am in the minority with regards to our readers and followers’ thoughts and feelings about fan fiction authors becoming published authors. I know that we here at BT, don’t have a problem with it, and are thrilled when a story we loved and adored as fan fic, gets the attention it deserves when published, whether it’s self-published, with a small publishing house or one of the bigger ones.
When I read the positive reviews of their published work on Goodreads by people who didn’t know it was fan fiction in the first place or maybe just didn’t read it before being published, that in itself proves to me that the work stands on its own.
I guess I feel like I need to clear the air about this point, because one of my favorite fan fiction writers, Savage7289, is now getting some of her fan fic work published and as well as her original work. I am thrilled for her, and want to share my praise of two of her books here.
