Product description

Review

One of the challenges a fiction writer faces, especially when prolific, is coming up with fresh ways to describe emotions. This handy compendium fills that need. It is both a reference and a brainstorming tool, and one of the resources I’ll be turning to most often as I write my own books. ~ James Scott Bell, bestselling author of Deceived and Plot & Structure

This is a one-of-a-kind resource for the writer. Offering synonyms (and more) for emotions of every stripe - as well as some sound writing advice throughout - this is just the sort of tome to have sitting within reach of the keyboard. A quick flip through the pages is sure to offer a plethora of new ideas and story possibilities. ~ K.M. Weiland, bestselling author of Outlining Your Novel: Map Your Way To Success and Structuring Your Novel: Essential keys for Writing an Outstanding Story

--This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

In her former life, Becca Puglisi was a teacher-elementary, because six-year-olds are easy to push around and the math isn't too hard. She read roughly a gajillion picture books to her students, and it was her love for these books that originally motivated her to become an author, though she's since moved on to young adult novels. Now, Becca is a YA fantasy/historical fiction writer and co-author of a number of descriptive thesauruses for writers, including the bestselling The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer's Guide to Character Expression. She also is co-founder of One Stop For Writers®, a unique online resource containing many helpful tools, craft tutorials, and the entire Writers Helping Writers thesaurus collection (cross-referenced and searchable!). Becca is an international speaker who enjoys teaching workshops and presenting various writerly topics. Her books are represented by foreign rights agent Marleen Seegers of 2 Seas Agency. During her free time (ha), Becca enjoys playing video games with her kids, watching movies with her husband, teaching Bible studies, baking, and adding to her stash of emergency supplies. She has always enjoyed contemplating the What if? scenario, which served her well when she lived in south Florida and will help her survive the winter now that she's moved to New York.

Angela is Canadian and loves her home near Calgary, Alberta, nestled close to the Rockies. She enjoys traveling with her family, exploring new and unusual places, and is constantly amazed at how the universe seems to bring along the people she needs to connect with at just the right time. The author of 6 bestselling resource books printed in 6 different languages, Angela enjoys sharing her passion for writing craft. She is a writing coach, international speaker, and a firm believer that writers succeed best together. The desire to help writers in new, innovative ways is a love she shares with Becca Puglisi and Lee Powell, and together the three formed One Stop for Writers®, a unique site filled with custom tools and writing resources built to help writers elevate their storytelling. In the fiction realm, Angela is sowing her wild oats, playing around with darker themes and interesting plot twists. Her audience of preference is middle grade and young adult, but lately she's been toying with trying an adult thriller on for size. Angela's foreign rights are being cared for by Marleen Seegers of 2 Seas Agency. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
