In the past when we’ve released a 2-volume set, it’s always been at the same time, but with the Conflict Thesaurus, life was just too busy to try and do two books at once. We are ecstatic to finally have both out in the world. Let’s take a look at what’s inside the second volume.
The Conflict Thesaurus GOLD edition (Volume 1) served up a smorgasbord of conflict scenarios that would challenge, strain, and reshape a character into who they must become to win.
This SILVER edition (Volume 2) offers yet more problems, challenges, and points of friction, so we thought you might like to read through some of them and how they create minor inconveniences or disastrous fallout depending on what your story needs:

This SILVER guide also delves into more ways conflict can be used to power your story, so get ready to level up your plotting skills so every event in your story pushes the story forward and deepens tension.
What writers are saying about this guide…
“Angela and Becca did such an amazing job of laying these two books out, they are literal compliments to each other. If you read one, I guarantee you will become obsessed with reading the other. It is like finally resolving the cliffhanger that left you craving more.” ~ Vincent Jobson
“Volume 2 of The Conflict Thesaurus series is a gold mine. A wealth of information you absolutely have to have in your writing craft library.” ~ Tara Baisden
“Volume 2 of The Conflict Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Obstacles, Adversaries, and Inner Struggles is a tool that I have no hesitation in calling indispensable. It’s a book that you can crack the cover and immediately start using in either creating a new story or working on a current one.” ~ Nichole Squire
“Not only is the new material insightful, but when going through the book, I found my mind jumping to my current WIP (work-in-progress) as well as roughly plotting future books with ideas brimming to the surface, all saying, Write me. No, write me first.” ~ Kathy
