I received an ARC Irresistible World Building For Unforgettable Stories by Janeen Ippolito in return for a honest review.
Here is the book blurb:
Write stories with worlds that create lifelong fans and fandoms!
Irresistible World Building for Unforgettable Stories contains key methods and tips on how to weave your world building into every aspect of your story, from theme to plot to character arcs.
-Use writing prompts and exercises to jumpstart your creativity
-Get ideas on how to refresh world building genre tropes while still hitting reader sweet spots
-Learn to embrace your inner geek and passions to connect your world building with readers
Vivid world building is great. Vivid world building that sells? Even better!
This book really delivers on the title in all the right ways. It starts with an in-depth explaination of different writing terms. Each section gives you gives many, many questions to help you figure out what your character, worldview, and narrative is for your book which is absolutely invaluble.
This isn't someone trying to give you a few premade plans, this is a workbook that walks you through the step by step process of figuring out your world. It helps you to weave your worldbuilding right into your story with questions to ponder and figure out.
I have been looking for a book like this and I am so glad Janeen has written it. :) Click here to buy it on Amazon.
