Together, Angela and Becca host The Bookshelf Muse, an award-winning online resource for writers that offers a number of different thesauri to aid authors in their descriptive writing efforts.
First and foremost, we want to thank the readers of The Bookshelf Muse—for your support, encouragement, and kind words that made us see the need for a book version of The Emotion Thesaurus. Without all of you, this honestly never would have happened.
We also want to acknowledge the very important members of our first critique group: Helen (Bookish), Roy (Grampy), Madeline (Maddog), Joan (Unohoo), and Laura (Goofus). These Critique Circle writers helped us kick start this list and our respective writing careers. Our deepest appreciation also goes to our friend and editor Sharon, who encouraged us when we needed it most.
We also owe a huge debt to the writing community at large. The writers we have met online, at conferences, at face-to-face groups, and in our own communities have been so generous with their knowledge and optimism, enabling us each to grow as writers. We love being part of this group.
And finally, the biggest shout out goes to our families, who supported us though they couldn’t see the vision, encouraged us when we struggled, and provided the business savvy we were lacking. We owe it all to you.
~To AAD and SDJ, with all our love~
