Great Books for the Writer

There are some really terrific books out there for the writer. I wanted to list a few favorites for y’all.

The Emotion Thesaurus by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi is simply fantastic. Here’s the book description: 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.

Using its 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.

I love it. It’s not only wonderful for ideas of how to describe emotions pulling readers into the scene, it also gives links to other parts of the book to escalate emotions, such as from impatience to irritation to anger and what that looks like both internally and externally. It gives physical signals, internal sensations, mental responses, and cues of acute or long term ’emotion’. You can get it in both print and kindle format at Amazon.com.

Another terrific book is How to Describe Colors by Amy Pogue.

Here’s the book description: Do you write about products that are colorful? Do your descriptive scenes need a boost? Take your writing to the next level with this indispensable toolkit of color names and similes that will delight and engage your readers.

These are not average color lists that you might find on the web or on Wikipedia. Instead, these lists were carefully crafted by a professional copywriter who spent many years writing about flower bouquets. The color brown, for instance, has over 90 different shades to choose from. Each color name and shade is chosen for its ability to convey to readers an exact tone. You won’t find any ridiculous paint chip names here – only true, beautiful ways to describe color.

Each of the 11 colors in the book also feature unique similes if you want to take your descriptions to the next level.

This one is fantastic too. It’s great being able to be a little more unique in describing various colors. The price isn’t bad either!

You can get it on Amazon.com.

Finally, a great just for fun read is Lady Molly of Scotland Yard by Baroness Orczy. Here’s the book description: Lady Molly of Scotland Yard — the lady detective who out-Sherlocks Sherlock Holmes!

Following twelve Lady Molly adventures and narrated by Lady Molly’s assistant Mary Granard, “Lady Molly of Scotland Yard” was first published in 1910. Orczy’s female detective was a precursor of the lay sleuth who relies on brains rather than brawn, and she most often succeeded because she recognized domestic clues foreign to male experience. The book soon became very popular.

Interestingly, as well as being one of the first novels to feature a female detective as the main character, Orczy’s outstandingly successful police officer preceded her real-life female counterparts by a decade.

Baroness Orczy is one of my favorite authors. She wrote the famous Scarlet Pimpernel series. This book is full of nice, short reads.

You can find this at ManyBooks.net. This website is terrific because all the books there are FREE!

Enjoy!

Then she starts showing signs of being like them. She’s kicked out of her home and they take her in. But some of her new housemates are either jealous or afraid of her, and she’s framed for something that she didn’t do.

She leaves and tries to make it out on her own. The streets are dangerous, but it’s better than dealing with backstabbers and people terrified of what she might become.
