Brand New Book Giveaway for Writers . . .

Just when you thought every reference book for writers had already been written, along comes a truly innovative, invaluable resource:

THE EMOTION THESAURUS by Becca Puglisi and Angela Ackerman of The Bookshelf Muse.


Do your characters tend to smile too much?  Bite their fingernails?  Sigh ad nauseum?

Mine do!

But no longer!  THE EMOTION THESAURUS offers extensive options for body language and physical responses for 75 emotions.  Your character's heart will never stampede with fear again!

Even though Angela and Becca sent me a complimentary electronic copy of THE EMOTION THESAURUS for being one of their writing heroes, I'm buying a brand spankin' new paperback copy so I can have it beside me while I write.  I know it will keep my character's reactions fresh and interesting.

And I'm buying a brand spankin' new copy for YOU loyal blog reader!  (Giveaway details below.)

Please stop by THE BOOKSHELF MUSE to give Angela and Becca some "Book Launch Day" love!

And, if you'd like to purchase their book RIGHT NOW, here's where you can get it:   Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, and Smashwords. The PDF can be also downloaded directly from their blog. 
 
To enter to win a FREE copy of THE EMOTION THESAURUS, leave a comment below.  

Stop back Thursday, May 17th, when a winner will be selected.

I have been such a huge fan of their site and am so thrilled that they've put this book together! Such a fabulous resource for all writers. I'd say I'm biting my fingernails waiting for my copy, but, because of the Bookshelf Muse, I know better. :)

My goodness. This is all news to me, and good news.

Thanks for introducing me to this book and the website. Yikes, no fingernail biting?

In case I got stuck on a thought while writing, a tear might fall on my manuscript.
If a tear fell on my manuscript, more tears might fall.
If more tears fell on my manuscript then my thoughts would be ruined.
But...IF I had THE EMOTION THESAURUS, I would never, ever need to cry.
Yes. I WOULD NEED TO CRY WITH JOY because I would have THE EMOTION THESAURUS.
Such a great resource.

I followed this on their blog, and am a fan. Having it all in a neat single volume is what the doctor ordered.
I see great things for this book.

Winning THE EMOTION THESAURUS is worth a million words.
