Last week, with the help of many family members and friends (both online and in real life) I launched my book, Champion Chocolatier: Reality Bites. It was a week full of exciting surprises (my sister drove all the way from Marshfield for the launch party and the La Crosse Tribune wrote an article about me!) and a plethora of well wishes and affirmations. Overall, I’m happy to say it was a big success. (I’ve sold over 100 copies so far!) Here are a few of my favorite moments from the launch party.
Today I’m going to return the favor to some of my online writer friends (that I hope to meet in person one day!). A few weeks ago I gave you a sneak peek of the Emotion Thesaurus: 2nd Edition, and in today’s blog post I am welcoming authors Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi to guest post and share that this incredible resource is live and ready to order!
Emotion Thesaurus: 2nd Edition
By Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi
You might know about The Emotion Thesaurus or even have it on your shelf. But chances are, you may not have known a second edition was in the works. We decided to keep it a surprise and only recently announced the book was releasing! Good news, your favorite book is now bigger and better.
The Emotion Thesaurus is known for its powerful lists that help writers show (rather than tell) character emotion through body language, thoughts, visceral sensations, dialogue cues, and behavior. This second edition gives writers more of what they love: more emotions (55 more to be exact!) more teaching content, and more writing tips.
Here are three of the new entries: Euphoria, Vindicated, and Schadenfreude. This book is almost twice the size of the original, so it's almost two books in one. Anyway, if you'd like to check into it, Goodreads has some reviews up, and you can find more information here.

I also NEVER link to products or services that I don't 100% believe in. I will never tout a company or their goods if they are disreputable or if I don't believe them to be worthy of your hard-earned money. In no way are my affiliate links a scam.
