Product Description

The Book Every Aspiring Fiction Writer Needs On Their Bookshelf!

Sometimes the word 'said' just doesn't cut it. Sometimes a writer needs something with a little more expressive power; a word or phrase that helps the reader visualize the tonal quality or mood of the character doing the talking.

For many years, writers have been eagerly awaiting the publication of a resource to help them with this dilemma. Thankfully, that wait is finally over. Now there's a way for any writer, regardless of their experience, to craft dialogue tags that add emotion and vibrancy to their storytelling; all while avoiding tired and worn out cliches.

Dahlia Evans has compiled a dialogue thesaurus unlike anything ever published. This unique sourcebook is filled to the brim with words and phrases gathered from hundreds of bestselling novels. Finally, you will be able to open up vistas of endless inspiration and bring your dialogue to life.

Inside You'll Discover:

# Over 500 dialogue and action tags you can use instead of 'said'.
# More than 2900 adverbs that can be used to describe speech.
# Thousands of emotion and feeling words in adjective and noun form.
# A thousand phrases to describe body language and movement.
# Tons of example sentences to help solidify your understanding.
# And best of all, words are sorted in alphabetical order, as well as by category.

'The Dialogue Thesaurus' is the first book of its kind; a thesaurus geared towards writers who want to frame their dialogue with compelling and expressive words and phrases.
