New Book: 122 Down-to-Earth Ideas for Science Fiction Writers

sf220Here’s the third book in our rebranded series of ideas, story starters and writing prompts for writers.

All of the ideas have been edited and updated;
there’s a lovely new cover;
the Kindle price has been slashed to just 2.99;
and it’s available in paperback for the first time too!

It’s only available from Amazon, and to comply with their exclusivity requirements, we will no longer be selling it on the ideas4writers website.

A lot of work went into this one. The writing is better, the ideas are clearer, and there are lots of new bits.

Here’s the new description:

Write science fiction stories your readers will never forget!

Banish those ponderous, over-used plots; clichéd, one-dimensional characters; and stories that lack imagination and depth. Your plots will be huge, entertaining and fresh; your heroes, villains and aliens will be authentic, memorable and extraordinary; and your stories will be out of this world.

The 122 ideas in this book include:

  • How to create unique story ideas
  • How to predict the future
  • How to use (and misuse) technology
  • Everything you need to know about time travel
  • How to write alternative history stories
  • Everything you need to know about aliens
  • How to change the way the universe works
  • How to create your own worlds and universes
  • And much more

Plus you’ll get 33 great scene and storyline ideas you can use immediately or adapt as you wish
