Ea art

Hey folks

Just remembered back when I was more active I mentioned that the wonderful Eli Allison - author of Unbound's very own Sour Fruit - did some artwork for me. Specifically, she created a very grand vision of what Anton Court - home to the hole - looks like.

So without further adeiu, here it is:

See if you can work out which house belongs to which resident...

Down the hole, time is... different.

Hi folks. Been a while, huh?

Truth is, I've been unwell. A lot. This has impacted my writing and my shilling for Deep Down There and while it is frustrating, I thank you all for continuing to support the book. Unbound continues to put a lot of faith in me, and for a writer, sometimes that's better than sales.

I can't promise any furthers insights or updates, but may pop a little teaser text…

The hole is halfway open...

50%...

I'm quite pleased with this, despite all my recent moaning. It shows progress, it shows interest, and it also shows that horror comedies about bloody big holes appeal to the masses. So thank you all who have pledged so far, and to those who haven't, get on board! Because, you could be like the following winners of...

THE WHEEL OF MISFORTUNE!

Yes, I missed this at 40%, and so over at…

The hole is deep, and dark...

So what is a hole?

This is an interesting thing that has been conjured in the minds of those I have worked with regarding this project. My simple, Twitter-friendly pitch has been "the horror about a hole", which brings images of crumbling sink-holes that engulf the landscape around it. When you think of a hole, you think of something like a manmade structure dug out of the ground.

The hole in…

The hole has such gifts to give you...

Hello all

So, what is currently happening behind the scenes with Deep Down There? Well apart from the introduction of a discount code - DEEP10 - to grab yourself 10% off your pledges, I am also working on some extra little prizes for you wonderful backers...

What prizes you ask? Well, more exclusive artwork, more unique gifts, and something a little more... musical.

I'm also aware I haven…

What's down the hole?

Friday, 2 March 2018

The key question for all supporters of this particular tome...

For the record, I know what is down there. Deep Down There, you could say (hey, that's the name of the book!). Is it revealed in the book? Kind of. Maybe. You'd have to read it to find out...

But yes, I know what's down there, and cultivating the mystery of what is down there was one of the more fun aspects of writing Deep Down There…

Who is the focus of the hole?

Saturday, 17 February 2018

Main characters are a tricky thing to get right.

I confess that when it comes to a story, I always start with a stock character who, surprise surprise, mirrors myself: white, heterosexual, and male. Usually 25-35 years old, and in a fluctuating state of relationship. This was my standard until I realised I was doing it, and since I have tried to variate my leading characters with the stories. After…

The hole wasn’t as big...

Hello all. 

As promised, here is a more regular update after months of radio silence from my end. And as promised, it is some behind the scenes factoids!

*cue trumpets*

So, how did Deep Down There begin life? Well, originally, it was going to be a short story - potentially around 15000 words. The idea was the same, but as I started plotting, the idea of putting more into the characters and…

The hole can bring darkness...

Hello again backers and potential backees...

Once again, I can only apologise for the lack of updates on Deep Down There. Truth be told, my health is still doing a number on me, preventing me from really embracing and getting on with my writing, including Deep Down There.

I'm hoping this will change, and these updates will become more frequest, in the meantime, what would you like to see in…

The hole still exists...

Hello...

First of all, apologies for the lack of updates. I have been vastly unwell and dealing with many plates spinning at various speeds.

But don't worry, for they have all crashed to the ground into many pieces and I am back in business!

We've hit 40%, which is awesome and also game for another spin of the Wheel of Misfortune. Keep an eye out for that this weekend.

Also, the artwork…

The hole affects up to 50 people...

50 Backers.

Well, this is absolutely splendid. Thank you to everyone who has backed Deep Down There so far, and massive thanks to Kashif Altaf for being the 50th Backer! A special reward is coming to you soon...

I was also going to put up an extract for Halloween, but amongst all the excitement of sweets and gore I forgot. Therefore, look out for that at the weekend.

And yes, you may have…

The hole cannot be covered...

Aloha.

Things continue to develop behind the scenes of Deep Down There. As well as getting some spiffing artwork put together for publicity by award-winning artist Elaine M Will, we are also looking at other artists to provide the awesome rewards we have planned, and also some more prizes from the Wheel of Misfortune...

In the meantime, gaze upon the new excerpt, ye mighty, and despair. That…

The hole has grown... by 27%

Saturday, 14 October 2017

Hello!



After a fallow period where 20% seemed like a distant dream... Deep Down There is now at a whopping 27%. That is phenomenal, and something I am very, very happy with.



So with that, the Wheel of Misfortune was spun for the Pledgers - twice - and a congrats are in order for Melissa Davies who won the DDT Lego Minifigs, and Iain Boulton who won a Pledge Upgrade! Congrats to you both...
