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.

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*

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.

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…

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...
