“This isn’t a self-help book. But I hope it will support you anyway.”

Beginning as a therapeutic exercise that was never supposed to be read by anyone else, the Down Days blog attracted readers from across the globe with its blunt, honest and poignant description of what it’s really like to live as a creative with depression and anxiety.

Down Days tells it like it is; breakdowns, anxiety loops, awkward social situations, out-of-touch doctors and perceptive counsellors; what it feels like to lose everything, including yourself, and how it changes you.

But this book also proves that you can make it through, and that you aren’t alone.

Book Trailer


Beginning his career with short stories in 2008, Craig’s tales have graced the pages of the British Fantasy Society, among many others. He has managed to avoid winning a single award in this whole time and has decided to take that as an accolade in itself, whenever the tears stop falling.

He likes to think that his books are about real people who live in impossible worlds. Whether his books are Fantasy, Horror, Steampunk, or Sci-fi, Craig loves to go wherever the stories may take him.

Both brilliantly hilarious and dark in equal measure, it’s honestly refreshing to read something about depression that doesn’t offer hollow platitudes about ‘getting over it’ or come across as condescending. It’s raw emotion on the page and it’s well worth the read.

SRN, Verified Amazon Customer

A wonderful read, full of well placed, mindful humour and humanity.

Mark Hayes, author of ‘A Spider in the Eye’

With my work with children, this book is exactly what I need to read. It offers so much in support of depression and mental illnesses that I do not wonder how this author was able to pick up a following quickly. It is true that it is not a self-help book but it sure does help!
