Well, hello there!
We are Andrew and Katie Wall, the husband-and-wife team behind Craft Better Books.
Katie is a writer, book coach, and editor who loves stories, words, and grammar (yes, really!). She has over a decade of experience helping writers in a variety of capacities.
Andrew is a World-Building Consultant. He loves books, anime, video games, TTRPGs, and pretty much anything he can engage with that will expose him to more story worlds.
Together, we work to support science fiction and fantasy writers in their writing journeys from start to finish! Our goal is this: to help you hone your craft, to invite you to embrace the joy and source of inspiration that world-building can be, and to set you up for writing success.
This product is more Andrew's brainchild, though.
While my (Andrew's) formal education isn't in creative writing itself (which Katie's is), I am formally versed in ancient history, philosophy, and religious studies, all things that go hand-in-hand with world-building.
My fascination with fictional worlds has led me to create more than my fair share in the last twelve years, making me all-too-familiar with the frustrations that can come with the process, one of which revolves around the sheer amount of research that goes into it!
Of course, this is where our Society-Building Toolkit comes in. Having done hours and hours of my own world-building research, I know how disruptive it can feel in the midst of the writing process.
I designed our Society-Building Toolkit to help you save time, cut to the heart of what essential questions you need to answer, and get you writing again!
So What Is Included?
Society-Building Research Reference
An e-book reference resource that has all the essential information you need to build a society from the ground up. Everything you need to make key decisions around political systems, economic systems, society type, culture, and religion is right here. Yet the Society-Building Research Reference is so much more than that. It is full of guiding prompts and detailed explanations of each aspect of a society, targeted to help you create societies that feel alive and are immersive for your readers.
Society Profile Workbook
The Society Profile Workbook takes the information from the SBRR and organizes it into easy-to-use check-boxes and spaces to answer questions and write down ideas, keeping all of your notes in one central place. It also leads you further down the society-building path, guiding you to generate a complete society by the end. Not only that, but the last few pages provide a space for you to create a quick reference to see all the key pieces of information about the society. No more flipping through five notebooks to find the info you need.
The C.O.R.E. System
All of this was designed using our C.O.R.E. System. C.O.R.E. stands for: Competency-building, Organizing, Reasoned, and Essential. This is our guarantee that everything contained in this toolkit: 1) helps you build competency in the topic; 2) assists you in organizing your thoughts; 3) has a firm basis in research and reasoned thinking; and 4) is absolutely essential to the process of world-building.
C.O.R.E. Questions Cheat Sheet
A handy quick-reference sheet for the C.O.R.E. questions relating to each section of The Society-Building Toolkit. This pulls all of the key prompts and what we have identified as the most essential questions to consider when building a society and organizes them onto a single double-sided sheet for you so you don't have to go digging through the main e-book for them.
Roll-a-Society Generator Tool
We designed this easy-to-use tool for those of you who may feel a bit overwhelmed at all of the decisions you have to make, as well as for those of you who like leaving things to chance. We took all of the options laid out in The SBRR and put them into numbered tables, allowing you to roll some dice and randomly generate a society! No need for hours of deliberation, just grab some dice and let chance make the initial decisions for you!
Just in case there was any confusion, this isn't a one-off download. As we come back and update and add to The Society-Building Toolkit you will have access to all future versions at no extra cost. This includes new versions of the primary product AND new extras that are added. Access and download everything included with The Society-Building Toolkit right from your customer portal any time you want!
That's a $270 value!

Who Is This For?
The Project Starter
If you already have a story idea, but have been struggling with your setting details and really hammering out what you want the societies in your world to look like, then you need The Society-Building Toolkit. Creating a fleshed-out and dynamic world will bring your story to life. Let me help you nail down the basics so you can move forward with confidence.
The Beginning Writer
If you are someone who is just starting out on your writing journey, The Society-Building Toolkit is absolutely for you! I always highly recommend starting the writing process with world-building because I believe that a well-constructed world naturally presents many story opportunities. Using The Society-Building Toolkit will make it simple to build your world's societies!
The Stuck Author
If you have already started writing and keep running into continuity issues or setting contradictions, The Society-Building Toolkit can help you iron those out. Trying to world-build on the fly is hard and can set a lot of traps and tripwires for us along the way. I highly recommend putting a pause on your writing to figure out all the key details of your societies so when you pick your writing back up you won't have to pause to do research again!
The Fed-up Researcher
If you are at any stage of the writing process and just want to skip the hours researching and write already, then I designed this product to help you hit the fast-forward button on your research so you can do just that!
