About the Book:

Worldbuilding is the ultimate act of creation for speculative fiction writers, but how exactly do you worldbuild? You ask ‘what if’ and use each answer as a springboard to more questions and answers about your fictional world.

In The A-Zs of Worldbuilding, that ‘what if’ process is broken down into 26 themed chapters, covering topics ranging from architecture to zoology. Each chapter includes a corresponding set of guided exercises to help you find the ‘what if’ questions relevant to your story’s world.

Fair warning, though: worldbuilding is addictive. Once you get started, you might never put your pen down again.

What People are Saying:

“As a writer, I found this book to be super helpful for thinking through all the elements that go into creating a fantastical or science fiction world. Honestly, even if you’re writing about a time in the historical past or a place of the world that you’ve never lived, this book would be useful. It encourages you to consider everything from wild life and plants to religions and family… and so much more that can potentially use to help create plot complications and inform the motives of different characters. It includes exercises to help you work through these different world elements, if you’re so inclined. It’s probably the most accessible and practical book on this topic that I’ve personally come across.” ~ Goodreads review

“The A-Zs of Worldbuilding is a great building block to help you think outside the norm for your world with plenty of room to grow. It doesn’t have you limited to what you could and couldn’t do.”

Nellie Batz

I love this book. With printable access to extra worksheets, you can write out your exercises in this book without fear of running out of space or changing your mind. Rebekah brought together various aspects of worldbuilding with questions I’ve never even considered for my own worlds such as birth/death rituals, how architecture affects and is affected by the world and climate, vegetation, and the science/religion/magic conundrum. ~ Goodreads Review
