What happened after the TV went off

Family's online book after year-long attempt to survive life without television

What happens when the power of evil declares war on the power of good and a young family is caught in the crossfire? You can find out, slowly, in Creepbrook Manor, a book written by William MacDonald Hughes, aged nine, his six-year-old sister, Susannah, and their father, Willie. The family Hughes decided to take a break from television for a year. Their motivation was simply to create some space for other things; they'd no idea of writing a book; that happened quite spontaneously about a month after the big switch-off. One evening William asked, "Can we write a book Dad?" The response was not too encouraging but he persisted, and Creepbrook Manor was born. They still haven't turned the television back on.

Creepbrook Manor will be released online a few chapters at a time over a a month. You can read it free online at the website: www.creepbrookmanor.com
