By Joel Friedlander:
I’m often asked why authors, particularly novelists, should bother with an email list. Aren’t email lists just for nonfiction writers or Internet marketers with something to sell? Novelists are trying to get readers involved with the worlds that they create, and to care about the characters who populate those worlds.
In other words, they really want people to get engaged with their writing.
This gives you a hint about why email lists can be really effective for writers who are trying to find readers. It’s all related to the level of engagement that exists with your readers.

One of the biggest problem areas for writers is conveying a character’s emotions to the reader in a unique, compelling way. This book comes to the rescue by exploring seventy-five emotions and listing the possible body language cues, thoughts, and visceral responses for each.
Written in an easy-to-navigate list format, readers can draw inspiration from character cues that range in intensity to match any emotional moment, including situations where a character is trying to hide their feelings from others. The Emotion Thesaurus also tackles common emotion-related writing problems and provides methods to overcome them.
This writing tool encourages writers to show, not tell emotion and is a creative brainstorming resource for any fiction project.
