Editorial Reviews

Review

One of the challenges a fiction writer faces, especially when prolific, is coming up with fresh ways to describe emotions. This handy compendium fills that need. It is both a reference and a brainstorming tool, and one of the resources I'll be turning to most often as I write my own books. - James Scott Bell, bestselling author of Deceived and Plot & Structure

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference - from beginning to end!
By Peggy on February 28, 2019
This is an excellent book!! Listing many emotions, this book also details many of the "physical signals" that a person feeling that emotion might display, while giving writers tips for showing that a person is feeling these emotions. Excellent reference - from beginning to end! Please mark if you find my review helpful. Thank you so much!
