INFORMATION
https://www.authoralexgeorge.com

I've been writing stories since I was ten -always fiction, always a lot of description and on a large canvas.

In 2007 I decided to take the plunge and self - publish my first book. I've been writing ever since and am now working on my third fiction novel. I hope to branch out from fantasy at some point, so I can get some thoughts down about the Historic 9th to 15th century.

All I need now is that magic golden key that unlocks the publishers' world to allow me in -or rather out there to share my creations with my readers.

alexgeorge: I must share this with all of you! Look what Dean has come up with for Hieradon. Note the similarities: palm and date trees in the horizon, the city merging with the heavens (the stars on the right), the many Greek and Egyptian style temples that remind one of Alexandria.

Hieradon would be different from this picture in that the city centre rises up in rings like coins stacked with gradual increases in height and with an apex which is not much narrower than the base. But, other than that, the picture holds all the mystique and exotic orientalism of Hieradon.

    NicciFaye: That is truly an awesome picture. Of course, with Dean and his many talents!

    alexgeorge: I couldn't agree more. Look at this new one--it's the double doors leading into Titenkha's palace:

alexgeorge: Hello, my fine author and poet friends. It's been a while but I will endeavour to post at least once a week. Yep, you guessed it: got an exam on 24 Jan, and I'm still not in the clear after that.

I have three more modules and a thesis to go for spring and summer. Good news is, I'm doing well, getting a little chubby from lack of exercise, but still enjoying reading, writing (occasionally--so that's a bad thing: I would have preferred my writing could be kept up), and even finding time to watch a movie or two.

I'll continue to review and to chat with you guys, so not to worry: I don't intend dissappearing on you (like Bilbo did on his hundred and eleventh Bday!!! Remember that one?)

Keep well...and keep writing and posting! The world out there needs us, hehe.

    JB Lynn: Welcome back dear friend. Looks like you and I are returning from our holiday hiatus at about the same time. Good luck with your studies!
    January 11, 2014 at 12:55PM
    alexgeorge: Thank you
    January 11, 2014 at 1:22PM

alexgeorge: Hi guys!

Well, I'm back, on and off. I finished an exam last Friday and handed a project in last Tuesday. Things worked out well. Now I get a bit of a breather until the next round.

I'll be reviewing infrequently for the time being. Nice to be back--even if it is intermittently.

November 17, 2013 at 5:06AM
    Barb Hensongispsaca: Finally, yeah, about time, you were missed. Hope the exam went well.
    November 17, 2013 at 5:23AM
    DIS-illusioned: Uh, and you're who, again? ...
    LOL Welcome back, buddy. Good luck with your studies. :)

    I only just realised. Haven't visited the site for four days. I'm handing in a project at my master's course at Uni, in two weeks, and have been working like crazy on my research assignment.

alexgeorge: Dean has posted a poem that is dedicated to me. It's called "Such a Fantasy."

I am truly humbled by this poem and the author's notes. I'm so glad to have been able to touch the hearts of my friends here on FS.

It is my fervent wish to one day gain a contract with a reputable agent--and publisher--so that I will be able to continue to do that which I love most, and that is to write fantasy to the best of my ability with respect to my readers.

Thank you so much to every one of you for your support,

Your friend, Alex George.

    JB Lynn: You absolutely deserve it, you lucky devil! Hold tight to that dream. I believe it will happen.
    September 1, 2013 at 10:10PM
    Dean Kuch: You are well deserving of the recognition, my friend. What a wonderfully talented writer you truly are, and a gentleman to boot!
    September 28, 2013 at 4:42AM

alexgeorge: I just love this picture.

Unbeknownst to my friend, Dean, he has inadvertently stumbled over a picture of Mernadje. She is an Ishbad martial arts student trying to obtain weapons master status so she can enter the Queen's Guard.

Fabulous!

    Mystic Angel 7777: Dean is utterly amazing! I wonder what it would be like to be in the same room with you two for like five minutes 0 would any of the awesomeness rub off? One can wish!
    August 3, 2013 at 6:39PM

Dean Kuch just found a perfect picture of Sergeant Dugal of Maudiers, who appears in Chapter 85!
