A writer's blog full of helpful tools like an Emotional Thesaurus (different actions we use to show emotions) as well as advice on writing, critiquing and editing from seasoned critiquers.
1. The Bookshelf Muse Needs Your Help!

Okay guys, it's that time. Becca and I are looking ahead to our MAY 14th book launch for The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer's Guide To Character Expression, and we absolutely, positively need help to make this the biggest, most awesome event ever.

So, I'm breaking out the big guns.

Yep, that's right. PUPPY EYES.

Becca and I are going to do something very unique for our launch, something we've wanted to try for a long time, but have been too swamped to take on. Now, using the excitement that has built up around our book, we're finally going to bring it about. And we NEED YOUR HELP!

We've held some big events in the past and we hope this will lead to something bigger than ever before. We need to plan guest posts, find bookmark helpers, arrange for launch day support and more. And to make it work--really, really work--we can't do it alone. So what do you think? Will you help us with our launch?

Still need some convincing? Well then perhaps you need...


Omg...THE CUTENESS. I can barely stand it!

Seriously now--you guys have always been great about spreading the word and supporting us. I hope that you'll be willing to help out once again, because in addition to the usual launch festivities...

We've got a SUPER SECRET PLAN in the works--so secret in fact, we don't want to spill the details out here in the open. . :) But for our big plan to work, we need people like you.


Some of you require MORE convincing?

Wow, I am seriously impressed. Three words: WILL OF STEEL.

Okay, people--I didn't want to have to do this. I figured, you know, a bit of puppy eyes and we'd all be good to go.


Sure, you resisted the puppy eyes, but can you resist...A BASKET OF PUPPIES?

Look at them. Puppies. IN A BASKET. *dies*

Surely I have ensnared your commitment to the cause now!

There are a multitude of ways you could lend a hand. So if you're interested in our SUPER SECRET LAUNCH PROJECT, or would like to get involved another way, just fill out this quick FORM.

Puppy eye power & all joking aside, you people are the best! This book was written because Musers asked for it, and we want to do right by you as we launch it. Any support you can give is much appreciated.
