#Writers – the second (expanded) edition of THE EMOTION THESAURUS by Becca Puglisi and Angela Ackerman releases today! And don’t miss the mega-giveaway!

If you’re a writer, this is exciting news! The first edition of THE EMOTION THESAURUS was incredibly helpful and awesome all on its own, but this second, expanded edition has SO much more, with 55 new entries and double the articles and writing tips to help you apply everything to your work.

THE EMOTION THESAURUS helps you dive into what your characters feel and their corresponding body language, making you think more about your own and other peoples’ responses to make your work deeper and richer. Using emotion, body language cues, and more can help your reader feel that same emotion (exactly what you want to keep your reader engaged). I highly recommend this thesaurus (and all the others) if you write. You don’t have to just take my word on this; you can read the reviews on Goodreads for this version, and check out reviews, too, of the earlier edition. (But the new edition is even better.) You can also read more about it here.

I own a hardcopy and an ebook copy of the first edition of this thesaurus, and I’m so excited about the new edition that I’ve already ordered my copy so I can refer to it when I’m editing. It’s available in the US, Canada, and more.

And don’t miss this MEGA-OPPORTUNITY to win something amazing!


To celebrate the new edition and its dedicated readers, Angela and Becca have an incredible giveaway on right now: one person will win a free writing retreat, conference, workshop, or professional membership to a writing organization, winner’s choice (up to $500 US, with some other conditions which are listed on the WHW site).

What conference would you attend if the fee was already paid for…or would you choose a retreat? Something else? Decisions, decisions! This giveaway ends on February 26th, so hurry over and enter!
