The Emotional Wound Thesaurus Releases Soon. Will You Help Us?

It’s that time again: a new thesaurus book is coming!

Click for the back jacket description!

Why? Because we believe The Emotional Wound Thesaurus is the writing guide you’ve been waiting for.

Great fiction relies on deep, authentic characters who have needs and desires readers can relate to.

Who a character is, what they want, fear, and need most will all be rooted in their backstory. And, like the real world, past experiences help shape who a character becomes, in good ways and bad. Of those experiences, emotionally traumatic ones are the most harmful…and insidious. A wounding event can send a character’s life off course, hold him (or her) back, and keep fulfillment & happiness beyond reach.

To understand how broken or hurt a character might be at the start of the story we have to dig into his darkest places. Only then can we construct a goal so personal and important to him that he is willing to face his fear, acknowledge his vulnerability, and most of all, defeat the lie he believes that damages his self-worth and keeps him stuck in the past.

Sounds…challenging? It is!

(Which is why we think you’ll find The Emotional Wound Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Psychological Trauma helpful.) 🙂

Our release date is in late October, which brings us to the question:

Any of you lovely people interested in joining our Street Team? Because we could REALLY use some help.

If you might like to lend a hand with visibility, just sign up using this FORM.

We promise to make it as easy as possible and not strain your time too much. Any help you can offer is so appreciated. 🙂 And thank you all so much for cheering us on and always supporting us. We love you guys!

One housekeeping item:

Becca and I are going to take a mini blog break to try and get our ducks in a row as we have many big, exciting things happening this fall. We will be back in the blogging saddle next week!
