Hi everyone! Today’s an exciting day. Angela and Becca at Writers Helping Writers have revealed their 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, which is today!

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.

Plus, this book is available for preorder! You can find it right now on Amazon, Kobo, Indiebound, Apple Books, and Book Depository.

One last thing …

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

Until next time…

❤ HAPPY WRITING to my fellow Swashbucklers ❤

  1. 55 new entries? Wow. I don’t usually jump on new editions of books, but I use this one a LOT, and that many new entries is just too enticing. Thanks for the info.

    That pirate picture is the best! (I have a soft spot for them, BTW – one of my first chapter books was about pirates.)

    Thank you so much for helping us reveal our book cover in the most spectacular, show-don’t-tell way! You rock, and we are so very lucky to have you in our corner, Donna! ❤
