VirulentBlurb Creator Plans to Fill the Void

Fill the Void

Acclaimed author Kneel Downe is preparing an Indiegogo campaign to help finish his latest project, an audio book version of his latest hit novel, THE JACKPORT KILLER. 

From the press release:


The Indiegogo fund-raising campaign starts in two weeks...

A damaged serial killer is stalking the city streets. 

Bodies left at random.

Ritualistic in their method.


Can Detective Lobo find the JackPort Killer before events get too close?

Too personal?

Welcome to The Endless, Sprawling, Neon City beneath the broken EverNight.

Welcome to the world of The Wolf.

The world-weary wolf-spliced Detective Kurt Lobo first appeared in Kneel's debut book, VirulentBlurb:Fractures, along with the other characters from the ever-evolving VirulentBlurb.  Amelia received the first solo character outing last year in the next book Amelia's Song but, whilst Amelia's journey was a beautiful change of pace and very well received by fans and critics alike, it was the wolf-spliced detective that readers of Kneel's books were clamouring to hear more from and the first case file was released.

We have struck a deal with London-based award winning studio Spokenworld Audio, winners this year of both an Audie and a New York Award for their work, and the production and distribution costs are sorted. All that is needed now is £2500 to finalise the costs, and get all involved into the studio.

After an extensive hunt, actor Greg Patmore of Big Finish fame has agreed to take the on the iconic role of Lobo. Greg recently appeared with Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton as Good 'Lias Hatfield in the hit US series HATFIELDS & MCCOYS which won 5 Emmys, and this year appeared with Bradley Walsh in the current series of LAW & ORDER UK.


Between the fractured glass and the white noise is a void that needs filling. The silence is unbearable. The wolf must tell his tale...

Help us to give a voice to Detective Kurt Lobo.
