Dear Christian Indies,
We’ve had lots of interest in our episodes about writing craft, by which we mean the process of making your writing better. After all,it is one thing to have a beautiful cover and an excellent blurb to entice the reader to pull the trigger and give your book a chance, but it is also nice to fulfil the reader’s expectation for a well-written book.
Part of having a novel that works is to have the world your work is set in make sense to the reader. Those of us who write contemporary, or in the world as it existed in some documented time in history, have one challenge—making sure things happen as they would have in that time and place. However, those who write in fantastical realms or who dabble in those sorts of genres have another challenge altogether—creating a world from scratch that readers can believe in.
How does one do that, you ask? Well, this week we have brought in our second ever guest to the podcast, Mr. Ben Wolf. Ben is the author of “Power Author, A Quick Guide to Building Your Story Bible.”
Ben is someone whose perspective on worldbuilding will certainly inspire you. Here is his author bio:
Ben Wolf is an award-winning author, editor, and kangaroo-wrangler. When not writing sci-fi, fantasy, or horror novels, he tries to choke his friends in Brazilian jiu jitsu.
We hope you’ll tune in to learn what a Ben has to teach us about world-building.
See you there,
Jenifer Carll-Tong is the best-selling author of historical Christian romances and co-host of the Christian Indie Writers’ Podcast.
