Full disclosure: Becca and I have been a bit sneaky this year.
First, we decided that rather than tell everyone which thesaurus we would publish next we would surprise everyone, and in February we launched an EXPANDED version of the Emotion Thesaurus (130 entries). And now, we have another surprise for you…our first boxed set!
Many of you have asked if we would consider boxed sets, and while there’s too many barriers for a print boxed set we decided to go ahead and try a digital one. This is a pilot project, to see if the interest is there, because our books are very link-heavy and so require a lot more work to bundle up than a fiction boxed set.
So, meet the Character Trait Thesaurus Boxed Set. Inside are the complete volumes of The Positive Trait Thesaurus, which covers the different attributes and strengths of a character’s personality, and the Negative Trait Thesaurus, which looks at the different human flaws we can hobble our characters with. These books span more than 200 critical traits and lead you through the process of character creation. Not only will you understand how the past affects the present when it comes to personality, worldview, and so many other aspects of characterization, you’ll find everything you need to build a story cast that feels authentic and memorable, and be able to write their actions, thoughts, and decisions in a way that lines up with their core traits.
Everything contained in the original Positive and Negative Trait books is in this bundle, but with a terrific enhancement: we’ve cross-linked each trait so you can reach the master list of attributes and flaws from any entry. We’ve also linked the options under the section TRAITS IN SUPPORTING CHARACTERS THAT MAY CAUSE CONFLICT so you can quickly maneuver to those entries with a single click:
Basically, navigating is twice as easy, and twice as fast. And that’s what these guides are about, giving you what you need quickly so you can get right back to what you do best: writing the book!
This boxed set is only available here at Writers Helping Writers.
We have every format you need: Mobi (Kindle), ePub (other e-readers like kobo, etc.) and PDF. Instructions are provided for putting these on your device, so it’s all nice and easy. If you would like to know more, visit our bookstore.
Powerful characters lead to powerful stories!
We hope this boxed set is just what you need. Happy writing, all!
