About This Episode

A novel is its own little miracle…

In an episode on craft, Kathleen and Adanna talk with author Stephanie Kemler about the process of world-building in fiction. Stephanie is the author of Bloodborn and the soon-to-release Bloodmad coming Valentine’s Day 2023. Stephanie created an extensive world in this vampire duet series. She has taken vampire lore and thrown out most of what readers know about them, creating an origin story that has never been told before. This TBP episode takes a nuanced look at creating a religion and applying ancient practices to a modern-gothic coming-of-age tale.

But this is not just world-building. How do you find time and discipline to get a manuscript completed? There is a wealth of wisdom for writers about Stephanie’s intuitive writing style, and tidbits about her non-traditional way are littered throughout this conversation. As she puts it, finding ways to “write in the margins” is one of the tips we like to share here at Talking Book Publishing.

We’d like to hear from you as well. If you have topics or speakers you’d like us to interview, please email us at podcast@talkingbookpublishing.today and join the conversation in the comments on our Instagram @writerspubsnet. We’d love to know how you build your worlds and your writing process.
