The Bookshelf Muse Needs Your Help!

Okay guys, it’s that time. Becca and I are looking ahead to our MAY 14th book launch for The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide To Character Expression, and we absolutely, positively need help to make this the biggest, most awesome event ever.

So, I’m breaking out the big guns.


Yep, that’s right. PUPPY EYES.

Becca and I are going to do something very unique for our launch, something we’ve wanted to try for a long time, but have been too swamped to take on. Now, using the excitement that has built up around our book, we’re finally going to bring it about. And we NEED YOUR HELP!

We’ve held some big events in the past and we hope this will lead to something bigger than ever before. We need to plan guest posts, find bookmark helpers, arrange for launch day support and more. And to make it work–really, really work–we can’t do it alone. So what do you think? Will you help us with our launch?

Seriously now–you guys have always been great about spreading the word and supporting us. I hope that you’ll be willing to help out once again, because in addition to the usual launch festivities…

We’ve got a SUPER SECRET PLAN in the works–so secret in fact, we don’t want to spill the details out here in the open. . 🙂 But for our big plan to work, we need people like you.

There are a multitude of ways you could lend a hand. So if you’re interested in our SUPER SECRET PROJECT, or would like to get involved another way, just fill out this quick FORM

Puppy eye power & all joking aside, you people are the best! This book was written because Musers asked for it, and we want to do right by you as we launch it. Any support you can give is much appreciated.

Hi Angela & Becca. Sorry I’m late but I just fund this site. Your Emotion Thesaurus was recommended to me from another writer. I ordered it and it has helped immensely. As my posts build on my blog I will add your book with a recommendation.


[…] a ‘grassroots’ approach rather than solicit big bloggers/sites for exposure. In our initial blog post asking for assistance from readers, we utilized a sign up form so the people who wanted to help us […]

I’m late to this (sorry!) but I filled out the form. Not just because this post is busting with puppy cuteness, mind you, but because this launch is so exciting! : )

The puppy eyes are kinda cute, but I’ve never been a real sucker for puppies.

Now the words “super secret” …
You’ve got me there.
