Eep! The Emotion Thesaurus 2.0

Rachelle M. N. Shaw

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share this with you. I've been helping Angela and Becca at Writers Helping Writers keep a BIG secret: what the next book in their thesaurus series will be.

It might seem strange for an author to not tell their readers about the book they plan to release . . . unless your names are Becca and Angela. They are known for writing books on showing, not telling, and couldn't pass up a chance to do just that by waiting for the cover reveal. And it’s a huge honor to be part that reveal!

So without further ado, I give you...

The Emotion Thesaurus Second Edition!

You might have heard of The Emotion Thesaurus before, or even have a copy. The original released in 2012 and quickly became the go-to guide on expressing character emotion. The book's lists of body language, thoughts, and visceral sensations for 75 unique emotions made brainstorming character expressions and reactions so much easier.

In this second edition, the authors have added 55 entries, bringing the total to 130 emotions.

That's not all, either. This book is almost double in size with lots of new content. You can find a full write up for it HERE and a list of all the entries (plus some samples!) HERE.

This book is also available for preorder! You can find it right now on Amazon, Kobo, iBooks, and Barnes & Noble.

One last thing I wanted to mention...

Angela & Becca are giving away a free webinar recording of one of their popular workshops on Emotion, so head on over to their site if this is an area of struggle for you. It might really help!
