Today at the Ferret blog, we have the distinct pleasure of interviewing one of our own! Rebekah has just published her first book: The A-Zs of Worldbuilding, based on a blog series that she did back in 2014.
You can already get the ebook (currently on sale for 99 cents!), but the fancy paperback copy will be coming out on September 30!
What is The A-Zs of Worldbuilding, you ask? From Rebekah herself:
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.
So, for such an amazing and wonderfully auspicious occasion, Ferrets Michelle, Serena, and Eris sat down to put together a few questions to
pester ask Rebekah, and she very graciously allowed us to do so.
Without further ado, here’s the interview!
