gary level

So, if I ever become a published author who meets with a moderate amount of success, not like JKR success, not even John Green success, but IDK maybe Gary Paulsen level of success, I want you to hold me to a pledge to, at least try to, put my works into the public domain after twenty-five years. 

I personally believe that even the life of the author is too much time, and fans of works should be allowed to remix them just like they can with, say, Jane Austen’s works, and make money from the resulting work.

I’m probably not going to be that successful of an author, my work is somehow both too normal and too odd to be published, but say I do. I want to be held accountable, and I want people to be able to make money off what I do, within my lifetime, so I can see what people do with that chance.
