Freebie For My Writer Friends

If you have used the Emotion Thesaurus (and almost every writer I know loves that book. You can get it here for $4.99 and it is worth its weight in gold!) then you definitely need the companion book to it---and it's free today!

The companion book is called Emotion Amplifiers by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi. Here's the back copy:

When writing fictional characters, it’s hugely important to convey their emotions effectively so readers will be drawn in and become invested in those characters. The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Character Expression was written to help writers convey the quality and depth of their characters’ feelings through their thoughts, body language, and visceral reactions. But there are also ways to amplify what a character is feeling, thereby heightening their emotional responses.

In Emotion Amplifiers, a companion guide to The Emotion Thesaurus, we explore 15 common states that naturally galvanize emotion. States like exhaustion, boredom, illness, pain, and extreme hunger can push characters to the limit, compromising their decision-making abilities and decreasing the likelihood of them reaching their goals. Emotion Amplifiers is a great tool for any writer wishing to tighten the screws on their characters and amp up the tension in their stories.

Whew! I hoped I didn't miss this freebie. I just downloaded it today (Saturday), and it was still free. I have the Emotional Thesaurus, and this is its companion. Yay! Thank you!
