Wow, 1000 reviews. It’s incredible to think that our unusual little book on emotions would win the hearts of so many people. Heartfelt thanks go out to each one of you who took the time to review us on Amazon, on Goodreads, at Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and other e-tailers.
You might not realize it, but each one of these reviews is incredibly important.
As writers, we all understand an idea can’t be copyrighted. That’s how it goes. And while in fiction the same idea can yield vastly different stories, this is not always the case when it comes to nonfiction.
When Becca and I first started writing these thesaurus books, there wasn’t much out there that we could compare ourselves to because our list format made our descriptive resource somewhat of a hybrid: part tool, part book.
Now? There’s quite a few description-focused writing books using lists (some similar to our topics here at WHW). And if you ran a search for titles, well, let’s just say you’d find more than a few with the word “Thesaurus” in them.
This brings us back to the huge role reviews play and why we cherish each one so much.
With each review, you’re helping our Writers Helping Writers brand of thesaurus books stand apart from all others.
So THANK YOU. Becca and I are so lucky to have such great readers! Your incredible love and support is what drives us to create books that help writers in the ways they need most.
