Michael A. DiBaggio
Shell ‘Presto’ DiBaggio

Maybe you’re a novelist with a great new protagonist and a thrilling plot, but your setting feels bland and unoriginal. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could plug them into a ready-built world?

Maybe you’re developing an original comic, but no one wants to give it a chance. Don’t you wish you could give it boost with a guest star that your audience already knows?

You can, and you can do it for free.

Join authors Mike and Shell DiBaggio as they guide you through the world of open source fiction. They’ll explain concepts like the public domain, copyleft, and Creative Commons in plain English. Then, using examples from their Ascension Epoch universe, they’ll show how you can use them to flesh out and promote your own creative works. Finally, they’ll point you toward a gigantic treasury of public domain resources, from fairy tales and classic literature to Golden Age comic books and modern cinema.
