  • A Fiction Writer’s Best Friend!

    Angela and Becca have done it again! If you have never experienced one of their thesauri, it's a must for writers. It is so comprehensive it could be used as an MFA course. Find dozens of career entries, besides the psychological effects, positive and negative aspects and the personality type that might possibly be a good fit for that occupation. It's a writer’s best friend!

    Thanks for your feedback!

    This is a good guide. I've loved their past guides but I've always secretly hoped they'd release something that focused on professions. It doesn't have as many common occupations as I would have liked(doctors, singers, things I was hoping would be there). But it does give a lot of incite for the careers it focuses on. There are some quirky career choices(like a food stylist) that make me want to consider diverse career choices for characters in the future. I will be purchasing the physical copy when it releases in July. I received an ARC of this thesaurus and for writers and authors, much like all their books are worth the investment.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A must read for every writer

    As far as I'm concerned, Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi have immortalized themselves as automatic buys for the rest of eternity. If you're a writer, do yourself a favor and make sure you add this book to your craft shelf. The Occupation Thesaurus is, without doubt, another home run. Ackerman and Puglisi take character occupations to the next level by showing you how to: Connect occupation to your book's theme Create conflict with an occupation Link occupations to your character's emotional wounds and flaws Draw spectacular details out from your characters occupations to hook readers and make your story sparkle And that's before you get to the meat of the book. Each occupation is rammed full of details like the training each job requires, helpful character traits for the role, skills and abilities you'd need to perform it, how to avoid stereotypes, ideas and motivations for choosing the perfect occupation as well as plenty of ideas for how to create friction and conflict. Each and every thesaurus Ackerman and Puglisi produce is spectacular. The Occupation Thesaurus is no different. Full of inspiration, teachings and knowledge that's guaranteed to take your writing to the next level. It's a must, you need this book on your craft shelf.

    Thanks for your feedback!
