It’s coming…the second volume of The Conflict Thesaurus is releasing this September!
Becca and I can’t wait, seriously. This thesaurus book is not only intensely helpful, it’s been pretty fun to write (dreaming up fictional torture for our characters was good therapy after Covid, haha).
And now we’re asking for help.
Will You Join Our Street Team?
Launching a book is a big task, and one we need help with. And thankfully, many generous folks always step up to help, and we’re so grateful.
So what does a Street Team do, you ask?
In a nutshell, our Street Team helps raise visibility for our launch event so more people find it and can take advantage of giveaways and freebies. They might offer up a blog post to let people know about a launch event, share news on social media, review the book, and things like that.
People on the team get insider info (like the first look at our cover!) and a front row seat to our launch strategy, which can be helpful when it comes time to plan their own release. Being part of the Street Team doesn’t mean a mountain of work, either. We try to make it as easy to help as possible.
So if you’d like to join the Street Team, sign up here. (And thank you!)
(We’re looking for book reviewers too, folks who can make time over the summer to read the guide. If this sounds like you, just sign up and let us know.)
A bit about The Conflict Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Obstacles, Adversaries, and Inner Struggles, Volume 2
In this book we dig into 120 more delicious conflict scenarios, targeting new categories, so you always find the right way to stress your characters and (hopefully) nudge them toward discovering their own inner greatness.
Vol. 1 Categories
Vol. 2 Categories
Duty and Responsibility
Failures and Mistakes
Moral Dilemmas and Temptations
Pressure and Ticking Clocks
Dangers and Threats
Loss of Control
Losing an Advantage
And, like Volume 1, we dig deep into the element of conflict and show how it can be used to make a story unputdownable. We touch on many topics including Villains, Character Agency, the Climax, and how conflict is the golden thread that weaves your story together. You’ll come away knowing a boatload more about conflict and tension (even if you already have the first volume).
So when does this book release? September 6th. Woot!
Thank you as always for all your kind support, whether you have a bit of time to dedicate to Street Team activities or not. We greatly appreciate you all!
