    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 would like to be notified when the The Urban Setting Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to City Spaces is available as pdf. Can you please let me know? Thanks!

    • Hi, Daniela. Absolutely, I will let you know. This is the only version we were unable to have ready by today, but it’s on my list to have it ready this week. Thanks for your patience!

  17. Andreas says:

    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,
    Andreas

  18. Megan Groff says:

    I am very interested in reading these books. Thank you so much for sharing them.

  19. Julie Reich says:

    Thank you for your books–they are so helpful! I’m really looking forward to the setting thesauri. To support independent booksellers, maybe you could include a link to Indiebound in the list of places to buy. Thanks again!

  21. Cindy Salaski says:

    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.

      Happy writing,

      Angela

  22. joe says:

    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!

  29. Hello,
    where can I purchase the Emotional Wounds Theaurus?
    Thanks,

    • Hi, Roxanne! The Emotional Wounds Thesaurus isn’t a book yet, unfortunately. We’re filling out that collection one entry at a time, every Saturday. Eventually, it may be turned in to a book, but for now it’s only available here at the blog. We’ll keep you posted :).
