***I purchased a copy of this book for my own enjoyment, and with no expectation of a review.***

Rayne Hall’s Euphonics for Writers, the fifteenth offering in her Writer’s Craft series, is a wonderful addition to any writer’s palette, be they beginners to the craft or well-established in it. I snagged this book because I am always on the lookout for new writingcraft books, and I found the topic interesting. I was aware of some of the topics covered, but didn't know there was a name for it!

The book starts with a sound thesaurus, offering certain sound categories, and the situations they are best used in. Later sections cover things such as alliteration, consonance, assonance, onomatopoeia, and when to use them, as well sentence/paragraph structuring, length, rhythm, pacing, repetition, and how to avoid dissonance. Clear examples are given for each topic, and, as a bonus, the book is littered with adorable cartoon kitties that help demonstrate certain tools, and bring a smile to the face.

If you want to add a top-notch resource to your writingcraft library, look no further. Hall’s Euphonics for Writers is sure to help make your writing sing with new life. ( )
