Soul Taker Got Its Third 5-Star Review

I’m very excited to let you all know that ‘Soul Taker’, the first book in ‘The Council Of Twelve’ series, got its third 5-star review. This is wonderful, I’m literally bouncing through my day.


Nice Debut!

New author A.J. Alexander excites us with her debut novella Soul Taker. Kate is an angel of death, taking the soul into the afterlife. After a job that went bad Kate wants to call it quits. Her request is granted in that she is now a Guardian angel and will learn under the tutelage of the great charming, and alluring Archangel Raphael. While Kate is being trained to be a Guardian demons attack kidnapping Kate. She has something they want. After her rescue by the Council of Twelve, we learn Kate does not have something hell and Lucifer want she IS what they want. You have to read the rest of the book to find out why.

Soul Taker is nicely written. Alexander pulls you into her world that is warm and welcoming. The characters are well written. Kate is written with a large innocence and vulnerability, yet it is also her strength as well. Lucifer is luxurious and I love him and Kate’s banter. This book is to be a series and it’s a nice beginning. Alexander is on my radar and will be interested in what else this series brings.

Commonly Confused Words in English – Written By Writing Explained

On The Story Reading Ape’s blog, I found an excellent post, taking me to a phenomenal page, ‘Writing Explained’. TSRA recommends us to bookmark that page – and I did! Thank you very much for all the great findings and your hard work to support us authors!


Let’s face it, English can be a confusing language at times. There are hundreds of confusing words in English: words that are separated by just one or two letters or words that sound exactly alike when you say them out loud but have completely different meanings.

That is why I have created this list of commonly confused words with detailed explanations on all of their uses and differences. I have done my best to make my explanations in everyday English so that anyone and everyone reading these posts will be able to easily understand.

Where Do Your Ideas Come From? – Written By Don Massenzio

Author Don Massenzio asks us where our ideas come from. Let’s read what he has to say about this subject. Thank you very much for all your hard blogging work for us, Don!


As I look at my writing notebook (you should consider carrying one), I see the dozens of story, setting and character ideas that I have collected and I’m both inspired and anxious.

There are many ideas that I want to turn into stories. It’s hard to write one at a time. At any given time I have a book and some kind of serial or short story going at the same time. This is tough with a 50-hour per week day job and 45 weeks of travel per year, but I somehow manage to squeeze in some writing.

As I looked at these ideas, I began thinking about where the ideas that I’ve recorded come from. I thought that telling you some of my sources might help you look at some idea generation possibilities you might not have thought of.
