    These are so great–I have two so far, I’d love to have all of them one day! Just a bit tight on my book budget right now. Is there a chance you’d ever consider some kind of “book bundle” deal on the Kindle or print book someday? 🙂 That said, I know a lot of hard work goes into these and good sales help keep things running. So if I have to wait and save up for them I certainly will. Thanks in any case for creating these wonderful writing resources!

    • Hi Sunny,

      We may offer a book bundle at some point for some of these books, but we also have priced these very fairly to make them affordable for all (rather than choosing the “inflated pricing model” you see most traditional publishers run with). Because of this, any discount would be minor for a book bundle. As much as we wish it wasn’t so, Becca and I have to eat, lol, and so yes, we do charge a fair price for our work.

      Thanks for asking about it,

      Angela

    Hi Angela,
    I’m in Australia and want to purchase The Emotional Wounds Thesaurus from the Book Depository but my daily searches of their website only show the earlier Thesaurus books. Will The Emotional Wounds Thesaurus be available at the Book Depository at a later date?

    • Hi, Enisa. Yes, our latest book will eventually be available at Book Depository. Unfortunately, it takes 6-8 weeks for a new print book to make its way into the distribution channels that will enable Book Depository to access it. So it may be a while. I’m very sorry about this; I wish there was a quicker way. It just takes a while for each book to make it’s way to all the channels when they first go live.

  5. Beverly J Campbell says:

    I was confused as how to order now at the $5.99 price. When I pressed the Amazon icon above it stated $17.00 I think. Exactly what is your notice offering and what are the steps to take advantage of it? Do I need to wait another day?

    Thank you, I’m anxious to read it, I guess.
    Beverly J Campbell

    • Beverly if you click on the ebook (Kindle) link, you will be taken to the kindle price of $5.99, and if you click on the print link, it takes you to the print price, which is $17.00 currently. Sorry these are on 2 different links–it always takes Amazon a bit of time to link the two so they show up on the same page.

  13. 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!

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

  18. 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!

  19. 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!

    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

    Hello, love your past thesauri. I’m interested in your new rural setting thesaurus, but before I purchase, I’d love a “look inside.” This option is not offered on Amazon, though it is for the urban setting. Looking forward to it.

    • Hi, Tamara! I’m so glad you’re interested in The Rural Thesaurus. Unfortunately, the Look Inside feature for the print books can take a few weeks to generate. It’s weird that it popped up almost immediately for Urban; I’ve talked to the powers that be and they say that the timing can be somewhat random and there’s nothing we can do about it speed up the process. However, the good news is that if you go to the Rural Thesaurus Kindle page, there’s a Look Inside feature there. The kindle and print copies are identical, with the exception of the digital version being linked. So that’s one way you can get a glimpse inside :).

    Hi Angela & Becca,

    I just wanted to buy your new Urban & Rural Setting thesauri in PDF format from this page. But as it happens, there are just the usual links to Kobo etc, but no PDF options.

    But because I’m reading more on my PC than on some stupid smart phone, I’d really prefer to read those books as PDFS than as epubs or kindles.

    When will you put the option to buy those two setting thesaurus books as PDFs up?

    Cheers,

    Your positive and negative traits PDF books show the price as $5.99 each but when I try to buy the price is $6.35 each. How do I buy for PDF versions for $5.99 ?

    • Hi Cindy,

      Our prices are the cover price, but do not include any taxes associated with where you may live. So, the price may be slightly different depending on where a writer is from. The price may also be converted into your local currency if you are not from the US.

    Hi everybody!
    where can I get the books of PHYSICAL FEATURE THESAURUS and WEATHER AND EARTHLY THESAURUS???

    • Hi, Joe! Unfortunately those two thesauruses aren’t available in book form. The only book formats we have are the ones you see on the Bookstore page. But we’re always adding new ones; the setting thesaurus will be available for purchase in June. The ones that you’re looking for can be found here at our website and also at http://www.onestopforwriters.com, our online library that contains all of our thesauruses in expanded form, along with tons of other resources. Best of luck with your writing!

    Allow me to say I love your books and I needed them
    more than I thought.

    I just purchased Emotion Amplifiers. I am curious where
    you obtained your amplifiers describing addiction. It
    appears to be from television and movies.
    Please forgive my frankness. However, I am a
    recovering women with the ‘disease’ of addiction.
    I am also a college graduate, raised four children,
    and a published writer who is finishing her
    first novel.
    I am no exception. Most of us with the disease
    are gifted in some way. We actually practice good
    hygiene. Our biggest issues are; financial, hiding
    it from loved ones and withdrawal. We need to get
    through the day like others.
    I am referring to the disease not just a dependency.
    Our livers metabolize chemicals much faster than
    in others. The disease actually changes our cell
    structure. It is far more complicated than most
    would ever think.
    Tremendous loads of guilt and shame are heaped
    upon our shoulders by us. We were born with this.
    Believe me no one would choose a life of addiction.
    It is a miserable existence. We are the ones that
    do not have blackouts we remember everything.
    When we finally comes to terms with the facts it is
    not a relief to know we must become a formidable
    warrior in order to fight this beast every day of
    our lives.
    Your use of things such as; poor hygiene, strong
    and strange odors floored me! I have found it to
    be true that most authors use the same adjectives
    concerning addiction. Sadly it is not their fault.
    Education about the disease is a joke.
    There are some like you describe. I suppose it is
    dependent on geography. Homeless people in
    general find it more than difficult to do the every
    day rituals most of us take for granted.
    We also have days of such physical and emotional
    weakness from literally being at war; with the
    disease and ourselves.
    And at some point we hit a bottom! It could start
    from losing a loved one. Whatever triggers the
    descent doesn’t matter. After that we become
    a bullet shot from a high powered rifle waiting to
    to hurt someone…ourselves.

    Thank you for all your help,
    Sheree

    • Sheree, thank you very much for posting your own personal experiences with addiction. What we list is not one size fits all, but a simple range of indicators that could show an amplifier may be present. We are sorry you took it to mean that these descriptors apply to all people who struggle with addiction, and I can see how this would cause you stress. Our guide however, is to simply list a range of ideas, and encourage writers to chose the ones that fit their own fictional characters, nothing more.

      Best,

      Angela

    Hi, I bought The Emotions Thesaurus online at Amazon and it was finally delivered yesterday. I would’ve read the guide and put it to good use last night but unfortunately had to prepare dinner, my sons’ breakfast for the morning, my husband’s lunch for work the next day and mine, as well as our clothes to wear the next day. But first thing this morning, I combed through it while riding the bus into work. And as soon as I got into work, I started to spread the word about The Emotions Thesaurus with another coworker. She was so interested she wanted me to email the url to your site and I also shared a link to your bookstore.

    • Wow, Lidy! First off, I’m glad there was no buyer’s remorse with our book. And secondly, thank you so much for spreading the word. Regardless of how many promotional and marketing hoops we jump through, word of mouth is how our book continues to sell. So THANK YOU! And happy writing :).

    I just can’t thank you two enough for writing these. The hours of research and trial and error is cut down to minutes with these two books.

    Angela Ackerman & Becca Puglisi – THANK YOU!!!! 🙂 I just recently purchased all three (3) of your books:
    The Emotion Thesaurus
    The Positive Trait Thesaurus
    The Negative Trait Thesaurus
    I absolutely LOVED the sample that I read of them. I loved them so much that I not only purchased the paperback versions of the book, but also put a copy of each on my iPad. I’m new to the Script Writing game and while still learning wanted something that would help me with substance and insight into why people do what they do and at times say the things they say. Only by reading these books and with practice will I hone my skills in writing Screenplays with deep, rich characters. I’m also ordering these books for my 17yr old daughter that is also an aspiring writer.

    • Jock, I’m so happy these books will be a help to you, and how awesome that you share this passion with your daughter. I would love to try a screenplay one day–it’s on my bucket list. there is a ton that we writers of fiction can learn from scriptwriters too. In fact. two books I recommend over and over for writers is Save The Cat and Writing Screenplays That Sell. Both are brilliant!

      Happy writing–let us know how it goes!

      Angela

      • Jock Washington says:

        Angela – Thank you for your kind response. YOU are an EXTREMELY TALENTED writer. It’s also your passion that bleeds through the writing of your book that inspires me. What you and “Becca” bring to the table of writing allows others I believe to learn from what you do and helps others be what they’ve dreamed of being.

        You made me laugh when you mentioned “Bucket List!” Writing, Directing and Producing my own films is a HUGE DREAM!! Your website couldn’t be named any better: “WritersHelpingWriters.net”

        Oh and my Daughter thinks it would be so cool for She & I to write something together. How awesome would that be? 🙂

    I previously bought a kindle version of the emotional thesaurus. Problem is that I would love to print it out for reference. I’d also like to purchase both your new books and I probably will in PDF. Is there some kind of package where we can have both versions?

    • Great question. Currently we don’t have book packages because the two trait books have just released, but it is something we plan down the road. (We are also watching to see how people respond to Amazon’s Match program, to see if that is something our readers would be receptive to.)

      We have tried to keep digital copy prices low in order to make them more affordable (and all three are available on print for those who want a desk copy.) I am happy to add you to our Newsletter mailing list if you like, so that you will be the first to know when ebook pairings are available in the future.

      Have a great weekend!

      Angela

  216. I purchased (and loved) my Nook version of The Emotions Thesaraus – until my Nook died. sniff, sniff. Had no idea you had other books available until I browsed for a kindle version. Is there any discount for purchasing a set of your various titles?

    I just ordered The Emotion Thesaurus by mistake. I already have that book. I wanted the Negative Trait Thesaurus in PDF.
