"Alexei Auld knows the story of my creative existence for the past 3, 5, uh maybe 10 years too well. Maybe your's too. After reading 7 Secret Sources of Inspiration: A Snappy Guide for Creative Procrastinators, I got off my butt and went to one of my 3rd spaces to work on a script I hadn't touched for months. And guess what? There's no fear in just doing it. In fact writing feels good. Really good. Why don't I do it more often. Alexei's book tells you why and ways to turn your bad habits into inspiration. Truth be told, time is not on your side. It's always about NOW. There are no excuses say Alexei with so many tools to create and distribute your work. 7 Secret Sources of Inspiration is your next read after Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way. Because every creative procrastinator knows, once we go into the 12 week "The Artist's Way" recovery, sooner or later we fall off the wagon and go back to our old habits and creative insecurities. That's when you have to call in the reinforcements. 7 Secret Sources may reduce your 12 week creative recovery to one weekend. Heck, I even dusted off my synthesizer." -- Michon Boston
"This book should be named "Get Off Your Damn Butt and Write, Right Now!" because that is what it did to me. I actually had just started my gofundme page to obtain 3 months worth of expenses so that I could write the stories that are singing in my head! I titled it, It is Time 2 Write my Story [...] Being a single mom, there is little time to sit and do anything, especially with son who has been ill. Reading Alexei's book made me stop everything and I have already written the first in a series of children's books, which is one of the projects I have just prayed over. The books have been burning inside my soul, and I am so thankful that Alexei's book came along to give me that kick and realize the urgency of this venture! Thank you Alexei!" -- A. Kay Oxendine, ASST. Ed, Native Hoop Magazine
