It has been a while since the last blog post (over a month ago!), and I'm sure you understand just how bust we've been and not just on the book.

The road has been slow and difficult, and we strive to continue to build and develop…

What a rollercoaster ride!

I thought it was about time to introduce one of my favourite characters to you, by the name of Fawlkes.

He is a man of simple needs, happy with just a quill, ink and parchment, but with a sense of humour which many can find iritating but also refreshing in his own way. I loved creating and writing Fawlkes's character, he is so easy to work with and listen to that he just makes me want to write…

Hi everyone!

Okay, let me start by saying Thank You Ian Skewis (A Murder of Crows) for your most helpful advice and support! We are very grateful and wish you the best of luck with your book!

Thank you P W for not only one pledge but for two! You have made both of us very happy and the first person to pledge for one of our limited edition pieces of artwork - well done.

On a general note now, we are around the half-way mark in writing the book and things are hotting up nicely for Blachthorn as he chases across the rooftops after a mysterious figure and leads him on a merry dance through…

A big thank you Kirsty for making our first day special.

I must say a big thank you to you Kirsty Jennings for making our first day special and making our funding 2%! I hope this is the begining of what is a sign of good things to come.
