Worldbuilding/

Character Building

You walk into my house, and there are different solar systems hanging from my ceilings and maps hanging from my walls. That's how much I love it!

So, can someone like me help you? It's easy!

What We Do

There are a lot of people who have exceptional ideas for stories, but the world-building just bogs them down. They go into a chapter where they know exactly what needs to happen....

And then they get stuck at the door because they're trying to figure out how the magic works to open it. 

We love working all that stuff out. We love researching it and refining it, twisting it and shaping it to create unique worlds. And, as we've discovered, it's something we’re good at translating. 

You come up with the idea, let us know what areas you want to focus on, and we get it done. 

We specialize in all areas of fantasy and science fiction. We can create as many alternate dimensions as you need, as many alternate worlds and games as you like. 

And we help you lay down the "bread crumbs" to solve mysteries, if that's what you have in your series.


The Process

Getting started

You create the OneNote and share it with me at Frankie@RealIndieAuthor.com. 

And then write down any and all notes you want or can send me. There are some people who literally just send me pictures. One author sent me the link to a song and had me worldbuild off of that. So, the challenge is out there. LOL! 

Research begins

We invest about a day in research before writing a single word down on the paper. We research history, science, or the latest astrophysics theories and news. 

We dig out names and dates and hit on a few things that spark an interest. If there's a mystery that will need to be solved, we outline it. 

Then, the work begins

That's when we get to work. If all you need is worldbuilding, we give you the setting and history in as much detail as we can. We keep it organized and easy-to-follow. That sometimes includes links to articles as well as links to pages within your OneNote. 

If you also need character building, we continue on the next day and create the list of characters you may need. We give them a bit of history for you to play with, giving you room to have fun, but enough to start from. 

I had Frankie Blooding do a world building packet for a new series I’m working on, and O.M.G. - the DETAIL! The HISTORY! The CHARACTERS. I love this woman’s brain. So excited about what she pulled together!

Frankie is amazing. I love how she takes simple ideas and stretches them into awesomeness. Her world/character building is creative and Frankie is knowledgeable about various mythologies. I believe she takes things one step further to help you understand things further and she makes you feel as if she cares about your story/outline/characters as well. Additionally, she provides tips and advice to help strengthen the story. Frankie is the real deal!

When don’t you need this?

If you’re booking a detailed outline with us, you do not need a worldbuild or character build. A lot of that information will be included in your outline.

When might you need this?

If you’re doing a massive project with multiple authors and lots of books, then you might want the worldbuild on top of the detailed outlines for more depth.

When do you definitely need this?

If you’re writing your own outlines or having someone else write them for you, you might want us to worldbuild and character build for you.

Outlines + Worldbuilding

If you’re booking an outline as well, you can add worldbuilding at a bundle price.

What you’ll get is worldbuilding as needed for your outline. If you book a series of outlines, add enough worldbuilding to get you started, and then once we have the world and the characters, you don’t need to include this.

But this add-on is something we should discuss as some stories are going to need more worldbuilding and some are going to require less.

Add CB to Outline

$25
  • Provide additional detail to outline
  • Character sketches of main characters

Outlines + Character Building

If you’re booking an outline and know that you need additional character information, then go ahead and add this to your outline.

What you’ll get with your detailed outline is a list of characters with brief descriptions so that you and I don’t forget people or get them confused.

So, if you know that you’ll need something more, add this option to the first book in your series. You probably will not need this for your other books in series unless each book has a different main character(s).
