  1. Do you happen to offer these in a bundle?

    • Hi Dorothy, unfortunately we do not. Creating a bundle for print books when you are a self-publisher is near impossible. We can control ebooks of course (hurray!), which is why we have priced our books at a very reasonable low price, rather than elevating it to the same price (or more!) of the print volume, a tactic that we typically see traditional publishers use. We don’t feel that is right, and we hope our readers agree. 🙂

      Happy writing!

  5. I have used your wonderful Emotions Thesaurus frequently. It is such a valuable resource.

  6. Tanya Kean says:

    Hi becca ands Angela. I’m not able to post a pic but I absolutely love your work and have followed you on fb for a while now. The emotional thesaurus would be my pick of the books as it’s the thing I struggle most with and when I do I jump on the WHW website. I get carried away by all the info available. I go down a rabbit hole ending up looking at all of the other thesauruses. They connect through setting, emotions and characters so writers can create well developed characters and stories. Even if I don’t win a copy I’m still going to jump on the website whenever I need a bit of help. Great job girls!

  7. I have tried to paste multiple pictures of your wonderful books in regards to the FB contest but cannot to no avail. Please know these would be an amazing help to my writing and I would love the opportunity to win them. I am a wordy girl! Please feel free to scope out my blog. I am known as the Word Junkie on my blog and at All Poetry. Thanks so much and blessings to all!

    Hmmm. I thought I posted this query once, but (at the moment) I do not see it in the thread. So I’ll try again (and please forgive me if it does end up being a duplicate).
    =====
    Is the PDF editable?

    For example, which of the following can I do with the PDF?
    – Highlight
    – Annotate
    – Add symbols (such as an arrow)
    – Insert pages
    – Delete pages
    – Print

    • Hi, Rose. I’m not positive about this, but your editing capability on PDFs may depend on your system. On my Mac, I can highlight, add notes, and add symbols to a PDF copy of The Negative Trait Thesaurus, for example. I don’t know what options are available if you’re using a PC or viewing the PDF on a pad/phone/etc, but I do know that anyone has the ability to print the PDF and save it to your system. You could also do all of this with the kindle and nook digital versions. I hope this helps!

      • Rose Johnston says:

        Hello, Becca – Nervous authors will sometimes lock their PDFs so tight that you can’t do anything except read it online; or you can print it and that’s all.

        I bought the Emotion Thesaurus and experimented with Adobe Acrobat on a PC. So far, no speed bumps. Thank you for that!

        • Well, we definitely want our authors to get the most out of their PDFs. For nonfiction books, you really need to be able to highlight/underline and make notes, so I’m glad our product is giving you want you need. Enjoy!

    Awesome collection of thesauri! We just published a gift guide for authors on our blog and included them on our list. Just thought you’d like to know. Thanks for caring about quality writing and publishing. 🙂 http://www.tlcgraphics.com/the-authors-12-days-of-christmas/

    Thanks and blessings to you!

  18. Terri Benson says:

    Is there anywhere that I can buy all the “thesaurus” books in a set?

    • Hi Terri,

      We don’t sell these in sets, but the best way I could suggest is to go through Amazon as they do free shipping. They also tend to discount our books (something that happens on their end, so we never know when or how much) but it looks right now all 5 books are discounted, so that’s nice. 🙂

      Happy writing,

      Angela
