For Tarthian Fans
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. The book features that history, and spans Earth and its colonization of the galaxy, focusing on the big picture. It also provides advice and suggestions for creating a Science Fiction series and building worlds. The Tarthian Empire Companion provides organizational tips, links to marketing sites, groups supporting writers, science fiction groups, and more.
Illustrated in full color with original art created by Jamin Allen.

What is a Story Bible?
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 the 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.
Qualified to Write a How-To
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 Romances, and have written within the genre since 2003.
Writing a History
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.
