Non-Fiction

The Realm Apparent
Foundational World Building for Speculative Fiction

The Realm Apparent was born out of a desire to find a structure for creating worlds for stories and games, that focused on only the key, foundational parts necessary to have a solid understanding of how the world functioned, before returning to the story itself. I’d seen numerous friends spend years cultivating a rich fabric for their world, only to never really finish the stories they’d built the world for, and I wanted to make sure I avoided that cliched trap for writers. At the same time, I wanted a structure I could reuse, that ensured that when I finished a story, if I had not broken any of the rules I’d laid out, then any plot holes that were present would be issues of story rather than world.

Starting as a handful of posts online, the guide became an e-book, and then a successful kickstarter campaign led to paperback and hardcover copies becoming available. It can be found on Amazon, Smashwords, in assorted bookstores and gaming shops, and via the author.
