Welcome to Wonderbooknow.com!

Welcome to Wonderbooknow.com, a site that supports Wonderbook: The Illustrated Guide to Creating Imaginative Fiction, released October 15!

Wonderbook is the first fully illustrated creative writing guide, with over 200 full-color images, and is meant to be of use to any beginning or intermediate fiction writer–although it should be of use for all creatives and anyone who wants to recharge their imagination. A few features on the book have already run, including a comprehensive interview by Bill Tipper at the Barnes & Noble Review and  a great preview of text and image over on Fastcocreate.

The primary purpose of the website is to provide all of the supplementary extras promised in Wonderbook, which you can find under the web icon menu feature “Web Extras”. That includes additional writing exercises, discussion of the exercises in the book, additional examples, and much more. Highlights among these web extras include:

You’ll also find additional useful material. Among the highlights:

Many, many thanks to all of the Wonderbook contributors–and special thanks to Luis Rodrigues for designing this site, Jeremy Zerfoss for his art, and Gregory Bossert for creating the Wonderbook video. Also my heartfelt appreciation of Matthew Cheney’s extremely sharp mind and wise counsel as well as John Coulthart’s stabilization of the book’s layout. – Jeff VanderMeer
