Alexander Nassau

Biography

October News:
As promised, I am very proud to announce the release of Proteus Ghosts!
This is the first part of the Natural Selection Saga, with Proteus Evolution coming next month. Ghosts is a fast paced action thriller with a distinctly comedic twist and an ending that ... well, that would be spoiling it.

Also, I am pleased to see that I am currently rated as a 4.5 out of 5.0 Author on Good Reads. It is really good to see the appreciation my fans have and that does spur me on to do even better for you! Thank you to those who took the time!

Don't forget you can keep up to date on my blog and check out Ghosts. It is by far one of my favourite books to date.

Thanks for reading!

Smashwords Interview

What do your fans mean to you?
My fans are perhaps a two edged sword. Some are a little scary at times, something which I think most authors and artists know about. However for the most part I find the whole fan experience is a positive one. In fact without one such fan pushing me to release my works, I would not be here.
They give me the motivation to carry on, to explore new idea and give me critique on my work and for that, I am eternally thankful.
Who are your favorite authors?
In no particular order my favourite authors are: Douglas Adams - one of the few writers who is fantastic at annoying your friends. Think about it. How many times do you burst out laughing randomly while quietly reading his work. John Vornholt who many years ago helped me get in to writing. James Herbert who taught me the essence of writing powerful character driven plots. From there, a few extra names. Dan Abnett, Pat Mills and Terry Pratchett
