Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is far more than a brilliant, thorough, insightful and unique thesaurus, this is the best primer on story -- and what REALLY hooks and holds readers-- that I have ever read."  ~ Lisa Cron, bestselling author of Wired For Story & Story Genius

"Emotional trauma, rightly used, will greatly increase the strength of the reader's bond with your characters. But how can a writer avoid clichés while brainstorming this backstory material? Once again, Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi supply the answer."  ~ James Scott Bell, International Thriller Writers Award winner

"This book is an invaluable resource providing situations that led to the character's emotional wound, false beliefs, fears and responses that impact personality, as well as triggers and opportunities that can lead into plot ideas. It's a great addition to the thesaurus collection from Ackerman & Puglisi." ~ Joanna Penn, NYT & USA Today bestselling author

"Short of hiring a psychologist for in-depth discussions about your characters, this book is one of the single best resources I've ever encountered for drilling deep in your character's psyche." ~ K.M. Weiland, bestselling author of Structure Your Novel & Creating Character Arcs

"I've been exploring backstory wounds for decades. This emotional guide adds depth to your characters, meaning to your plots, and promises richer, truer, and more stirring stories." ~ Martha Alderson, bestselling author of the Plot Whisperer books

"To weave stories that connect directly to a reader's heart, an author knows has to go deeper than they've ever gone before. The Emotional Wound Thesaurus takes them there." ~ Steena Holmes, NYT & USA Today bestselling author

"The Emotional Wound Thesaurus is a must-read for authors who want to write engaging, emotional stories with characters who leap off the page." ~Jennifer Probst, NYT & USA Today bestselling author

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference - from beginning to end!
By Peggy on February 28, 2019
Excellent reference - from beginning to end! Showcases personality traits that may emerge due to emotional wounds a person has suffered, along with triggers that may aggravate a wound and opportunities for a person to overcome a previous wound. Perfect for helping one write a developed and believable story line! I highly recommend this book. Please mark if you find my review helpful. Thank you so much!

5.0 out of 5 stars Physical book looks great
By K. Greene on March 31, 2018
I saw a previous post that stated that print in the physical book looked horrible, so I was hesitant to purchase it. However, I decided to just take a chance and I’m glad that I did. Everything looks perfect! The content is GREAT, but my main reason for making this post was to provide any concerned potential purchaser with a bit of ease and let them know that the physical book is also a good option for purchase.
