    Great reference book for writing dialogue. A wealth of entries for both standard and deep point of view. If using deep POV know which ones not to use.

    So thorough This is the type of book for every writer's shelf. She painstakingly writes out for any thought process, gives examples. Focuses on emotion types, or body parts from which dialogue can focus from. Amazing.

    Fantastic writers resource What a fantastic resource for any writer. It makes it so much easier if you're having a block on how to find other ways to describe the he said/she said or did situation, and that in itself is worth its weight in Gold!

    Good Resource for Writers This book is a good resource for authors searching for the right words to express dialogue. Dahila Evans has compiled a seemingly endless list of phrases, along with a few examples, to provide writers with tools to improve dialogue.

    I find this Thesaurus really useful. Just reading through the different emotions and feelings, inspired me. It has so many different words and phrases, I assume took a while to collect and write. I love the layout of the book, it was easy to find what I was looking for. In my opinion this is a Great book for fiction writers.

    Book is worth it for the body language, Don't use anything other than "said" This book is worth it for the body language section otherwise, use said. No offense to Ms. Evans, but there are a lot of great authors who suggest this rule.

    A Must Have For Writers. I initially downloaded the sample because the reviews were so mixed, but within a few seconds of opening the book, I purchased it. Very, very helpful and easy to navigate .....a must have for every writer's reference library. Definitely worth $2.99!

    This is a highly useful reference tool that anyone writing a novel should consider for his or her library. With this book, the author has successfully simplified the process for novelists who require assistance in selecting the appropriate descriptive words.

    The first part of this book I use every day! Though I don't necessarily agree with part two, I found parts three and four to be useful as well.
