Description

* Updates on hold * Manhattan, 1929. The City is on its knees following a devastating crash in the stock market. Thanks to the Prohibition, criminals are making a killing off illegal bars while thousands of honest labourers can't find a single day's work. And in the Bowery, a homeless war veteran hangs on by a thread. Solomon Hart has never had much luck in life. With only the clothes on his back and a couple of coins in his pocket, just getting through a single day can be a struggle, and the harsh winter is not making life any easier. But when he finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, his life takes a dramatic turn... and not necessarily for the better. Myth. Legend. Monsters. He'll meet them all in Elderland. 5-word synopsis: Like Narnia, but for grownups. Previously part of the Paid Stories program. Updates are currently on hold while I make my HAWK short film. I don't want to make any promises on when I'll be resuming as I don't want to risk disappointing people, but it should be some time this year. Sorry for the long delay and thank you for your patience. Trust me when I say that I've put SO much time into writing Elderland that I'm more keen to finish the story than anybody, but my HAWK film is extremely important to me and is demanding every ounce of creativity and energy I have to make it, so Elderland will have to sit on the back burner for a little while.
