For Authors

World building is vital for your novel.World-building is a vital factor in your novel. It makes a book cinematic, fuels the imagination, turns a scene into Technicolor in the reader's mind. Setting is the spice. Use too little and the result isn't rich enough. Use too much and it will overpower everything else. Writers need to find a balance.
