World-Building Support

Hi, I'm Andrew. When it comes to details, fantasy and sci-fi are genres that require a lot of leg work. Hammering out these details in a way that is logically consistent and ends with a living and breathing world, can easily be overwhelming for authors, both for those who have started writing already and those who haven’t started writing yet.

I do this sort of work for myself all the time. I like to dream big and get down deep in the nitty gritty when it comes to stories and these fundamental elements of them. 

It doesn’t matter where on the scale between “archetypal” or “utterly weird” you might be going for, from personality quirks to crafting settlements to laying the very foundations of a new planet, I am here to ensure that your “behind-the-scene” world-building work comes together and doesn’t create any obstacles for you on your writing adventure.

"Andrew offered me both clarity and workable solutions for some gaps I had in my magic system. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I ended up getting way more than I expected. He was easy to talk to and was very respectful of what I already had in place. Sometimes consultations can turn into what the consultant would do instead of what the consultee could do. Andrew didn't do that at all. I came away with a clearly defined magic system and some great insights for my plot based on that. I highly recommend Andrew."

"Andrew is AMAZING!!!!! I cannot say enough good things about this experience. I was so nervous about writing fantasy and he made me feel like I could do it. His world-building consulting helped me find my story and my characters. After each meeting, he gave me a detailed summary of our discussion. He came prepared to talk through anything and yet still walked me through the world in a structured and comprehensive way. Andrew asked specific questions regarding my world and characters and brainstormed with me on the various options I could choose, citing pros and cons to each option. I love that he shared his honest opinion, gave examples, and helped me find ways to work my ideas into the world. I have worked with Andrew for several sessions now and wish I could meet with him every week. His style was casual, warm, funny, and informative. He is very knowledgeable, and I would HIGHLY recommend him. I can't wait to work with him again!!!!"
