Great tool for all writers!

As a writer who loves writing but wasn't sure how to worldbuild, this book was such a blessing. Ippolito is simple, straightforward, and informative--tying in and demonstrating worldbuilding tactics in an accessible and useful way for amateurs like me. The book was a great comprehensive overview of worldbuilding techniques, tips and examples. It was so good, I'm hoping to do a book study on it. Buy this book and keep a pen nearby--you'll be taking notes!

Essential for Speculative Fiction Authors

I was pleased to learn my speculative fiction succeeded in many areas of world building and even happier to realize this book could guide me in fixing shortfalls. This book includes exercises that will help you implement the elements needed for world building that excites and engages readers.
I received a free copy and have chosen to leave a review.

Good worldbuilding is good book building.

In this book author Janeen Ippolit shares her secrets to amazing worldbuilding that will not only engage readers but will also improve every other aspect of your story.

The narrator Kevin Gisi, keeps the tone light and the performance engaging. He reads the workbook text not like your average instructor, but like that one professor you had in college. You remember, the one who really had a passion for what he was teaching and wanted you to have that passion too.

Between Gisi's reading and Ippolito's solid advice on writing and world creation, this audiobook is a must for any author struggling to tie together: characters, plot, theme, and genre.
