I have a secret to spill!
For the last month, I've been part of a Street Team for Angela and Becca at Writers Helping Writers, who are launching their new writing book on February 19th. Because they are known for showing, not telling, they decided it would be fun to keep the thesaurus book's topic a secret until the book cover reveal...WHICH IS TODAY!
It's been hard keeping quiet about this, so I am thrilled I can finally announce that The Emotion Thesaurus Second Edition is coming!
Many of you writers know (and possibly use) the original Emotion Thesaurus. It released in 2012 and became a must-have resource for many because it contained lists of body language, thoughts, and visceral sensations for 75 emotions, making the difficult task of showing character emotion on the page much easier. I love it! In fact, I have a print and Kindle copy, so I'm never far from help.
Many people have asked Angela and Becca to add more emotions over the years that they decided to create a second edition. It contains 55 NEW entries, bringing the total to 130 emotions.
This book is almost DOUBLE IN SIZE and there's a lot more new content, so I recommend checking it out. And you can. Right now.
This book is available for preorder, so you can find all the details about this new book's contents by visiting Amazon, Kobo, iBooks, and IndieBound, or swinging by Writers Helping Writers. You can view the full list of emotions included in this new book, too.
Have you tried their other books? Which are your favorites? Leave your thoughts in the comments below, and thanks for stopping by.

Emotional regulation requires us to put self-awareness into practice in our lives. Trying out the 5, 10 or 15-minute exercise is a great way to better regulate our emotions and learn from them rather than divert, deflect, or push them away.
But since you have given us some background regarding this, rest assured I will make some major changes with my life and how I deal with emotional matters. I will definitely take down some notes about this so that I won't forget about it. Thanks for this helpful insights.
