Book review up!

Posted on Updated on

Hello, Write Edge readers! I’ve posted my newest book review. Today I share my thoughts on Immoral Code by debut author Lillian Clark. Here’s the start to my post:

A group of teenagers take revenge on a parent when his indifference prevents one of them from going to college. As the friends navigate their elaborate plan, their relationships will reach new junctures. They’ll also have to decide whether their anger is worth risking all of their futures. Debut author Lillian Clark brings to her story five relatable protagonists in the mostly enjoyable novel Immoral Code.

Book review up — writers, this one’s for you!

Posted on Updated on

Good morning, Write Edge readers! I’ve posted my latest book review for you, and today this one’s in a category close to my heart. Today I’m reviewing The Emotional Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Character Expression, 2nd Edition by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi. As might be obvious from the title, this isn’t a novel or fiction. It’s for those of us who create fiction, who look forward to spending time in worlds we’ve invented with people only we can see to better explore and explain the human experience.

In other words, writers.

Here’s an excerpt of my review:

Unlike the first edition, this version of The Emotion Thesaurus also comes with a quick primer at the front of the book. Writers will find this little resource handy when they want easy tips about how dialogue can convey emotion and the importance of subtext. They can also come to the front of the book for help with brainstorming new approaches to familiar feelings or how to conduct research into their characters to use emotions to make them three-dimensional.
