Genre: Non-fiction, writer's guidebook
The Companion is a World Building Bible and Guide to Writing a Science Fiction Series.
Before writing the first book in the Tarthian Empire, I wrote ten thousand years of future history.
This book features that history, and spans Earth and its colonization of the galaxy, focusing on the big picture.
The Tarthian Empire Companion also provides advice and suggestions for creating a Science Fiction series and building worlds.
The companion provides organizational tips, links to marketing sites, groups supporting writers, science fiction groups, and more.
A "story bible" is the book an author uses to keep all the details straight when writing a story or book. Different from a synopsis or outline, a story bible is a collection of details that bring a story to life. Is your hero left handed? What year did your king assume the throne? What is the name of your heroine's pet? What type of money does your character have in his pocket? All these details and more are kept in a story bible. This book includes my story bible -- and shows you how to create your own.
I have studied the craft and read classic Scifi since I was a child. In 2008 I won an honorary mention for the EPIC eBook Award for Fantasy, and in 2010 won the EPIC eBook Award for Science Fiction Romance. My books have won reviewer's awards and received multiple four- and five-star reviews. I have published numerous Science Fiction books, Science Fiction Romances, and have written within the genre since 2003.
Writers must understand the culture of the people about whom they write. What events drove their wars? Who won them? What made the peace so short, and the fighting so dire? The Tarthian Empire Companion suggests other questions to consider when writing a history for your world.
