So, recently something nifty happened: we sold our 200,000th Emotion Thesaurus book.
We’re completely awestruck. When Becca and I started this journey, we talked about what success would look like for The Emotion Thesaurus. After gnawing on the question for a bit we settled on the idea that if the book sold 50,000 books over its lifetime, we’d be over the moon.
Needless to say, 200,000 copies has left us rather speechless.
Being writers of thesauruses, you’d think we’d get better at describing what this incredible rush of euphoric joy feels like, but nope. Word fail us, other than the largest, most heartfelt THANK YOU. 🙂
Because this number? It really belongs to you. After all, you were the ones that decided to take the leap and give this strange book of lists a try. You were the ones that brought the book to critique group meetings, mentioned it in writing forums, blogged about how the Emotion Thesaurus changed your writing for the better, and gifted copies to editorial clients and writing partners. You championed this book. And many of you didn’t stop there – you championed ALL of our books. We love you guys so much!
We would like to invite you to enter our giveaway for a new SIGNED copy. In fact, two signed copies – one for you, one for you to pass on to a friend. Because maybe your book looks a bit roughed up after all that use. Or you have the kindle but not the print. Maybe you lent your copy to someone who SWEARS it was abducted by aliens and you haven’t seen it since.
We’ve heard about our books being taken hostage (and more!) and we love you all for it. That’s why in this contest we’re especially looking for super fans!
