If there's one universal truth about writers, it's that we like to share. When we hear great writing advice, we share. If we read a book we like, we share. And, when we come across a resource that has really helped us, yes that's right...we share!
So today I'm sharing some news: authors Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi have released a second edition of The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer's Guide to Character Expression!
You may have heard of this book, or even own a copy, but it's quite possible that you didn't realize it had a second edition. Up until a month ago, I didn't either! It was all kept a secret by the authors who were determined to "show, not tell" their next new book through a mystery reveal. I helped with that, and it was so much fun.
This second edition is more than a new cover. It's been been enhanced and expanded to include 55 new entries and double the teaching material. Now we can go even deeper when showing our characters' emotions!
I've been using the original Emotion Thesaurus for years now, and I've been eager to check out each of Angela and Becca's newest iterations of these amazing resources for writers. This second edition did not disappoint! Not only does it include NEW emotions, but the previous ones were expanded on as well. They've created a wealth of information to deepen character development and give your readers an immersive experience of your book.
Anyway, if you want to look into it further, you can read some of the reviews on Goodreads or find more information here.
Also, one more thing to share...a MEGA-OPPORTUNITY to win something amazing!
