Fancy having a character named after you?

With the advent of another pledge arriving this morning, the time is drawing near to pull another name out of the hat and immortalise some lucky devil in print.

145 people have now pledged their support for Domini Mortum and when the clock strikes 150, then all of ther supporters names (Less Catherine Davies who won the honour at the 100 mark) will be thrown hapahzardly into my stovepipe and one will be drawn at random.

There are just five places left in this roll call of honour.  Are you on the list already?  If not, why not?  You could have a character in the book named after you. 


Do you fancy being?

  • The doorman of a brothel
  •  A very fancy lady 'escort'
  • An resident or orderly of a Victorian Asylum
  • A victim of an 'orrible ghastly murder in old London town
  • A policeman
  • A drunkard
  • Or any other bizarre character that I drag screaming forth from my twisted mind

The possibilities are endless and the rewards will give forever. 

Already pledged?  Why not double your chances with another punt?

Take one of the 5 places left today for your chance to join the grisly orgy of murder, mystery and madness that is Domini Mortum.

Thanks, and good luck

I think that I'd do very well as a fancy lady escort. Where else would you find a name like mine in Victorian London, if not a house of dubious repute?

Don't worry. Milcah. If your name comes out of the hat, you will be appearing in the nearest knocking shop.
