800 MORE synonyms than the first edition
A dozen new categories/sections
Two years ago, I published the first edition of Naughty Words for Nice Writers. The sex scene thesaurus developed out of my need for functional, usable synonyms. I wrote the book that I needed. In addition to words for sex acts, body parts, and the like, Naughty Words included some tips on how to write a sex scene. My goal was to serve the full range of eroticism: from sweet/fade to black to graphic/explicit.
Of course, as soon as Naughty Words was published, I thought of more words I could have included, and began planning for a second edition. Naughtys Word for Nice Writers (A Romance Novel Thesaurus) contains 800 more synonyms than the original, for a total of 2000+. In addition, since users indicated they also appreciated the sex scene writing tips, I added more how-to type information.
Among the new sections are: voice sounds, descriptions for muscles, sex scene locations, setting the scene with bedroom basics, sexual positions, how to remove clothing, sexual metaphors, and things you might find in a BDSM dungeon.
To see the complete table of contents, go to the book’s listing on Amazon by clicking the buy link and then click the “See Inside” feature.
Although spanking is no longer in the subtitle, the spanking section is still in the book and has been expanded with a couple of new sections.
Naughty Words is available in paperback and ebook. I strongly recommend the paperback because it is more functional. You can keep it right by your computer and won’t have to open up your Kindle or a computer file to access it.
Naughty Words FAQS
How can I tell what’s included in Naughty Words for Nice Writers?
Go to the book on Amazon and use the “See Inside” feature. You can see the complete Table of Contents.
What’s new in the updated version?
There are additional synonyms in most words lists, there are new words lists (such as muscles, words for naked, how to describe voices), and more how-to type information (places to have sex, how to set the mood in the bedroom, sexual metaphors). There are 800 more synonyms for a total of 2,000+ (there were 1,200 in the original) and more than a dozen new sections.
I don’t see spanking in the subtitle. Isn’t spanking in the book anymore?
The spanking section is still included in Naughty Words. It’s even been expanded a bit. I only took spanking out of the subtitle to appeal to wider market of romance writers.
I’m torn between the paperback and the ebook. Which is better?
The paperback. Trust me. Both versions contain the same information, however, for writing purposes, it’s much easier to look things up in the paperback than in the ebook. Plus, you can make notes in the paperback and write in your own words if you think of any. Besides, if you buy the paperback first, you can get the ebook for only 99 cents through the Matchbook program. Think of the ebook as the travel companion model.
I already purchased the first edition in ebook format. Can I buy the new version in ebook?
If you already own the ebook, there’s no need to buy it again, and Amazon’s system won’t allow you to buy a book you’ve already purchased. You can get an update for free through Amazon. Instructions here. (I have asked Kindle Direct Publishing to notify previous buyers the update is available). If you purchased the paperback, you will need to buy the second edition if you want the update.
