A diabolical demon, a misguided human, and a challenge to Satan’s crown. A retired psychic and her magical tapestry is the world’s only hope.



Short Summary

Gavin, otherwise known as 'The Freak' returns home after working away to find intruders. His concern lies with his beloved who is upstairs. When they find her they torture and kill her in front of Gavin and then kill him. Gavin swears revenge and a demon named Saul offers a deal he can't refuse

Saul's plan to take over the land between heaven and earth and capture the tapestry that holds it within its threads is foiled for now by the psychic, Clara known as The Guardian or Keeper of the Tapestry. Saul is sent back to hell by a knife kissed by the devil himself, after defeating the dragons.

Development Pitch

The Tapestry will make you ask questions. Is Gavin good or evil? Why does he do what he does? And why is he the way he is? You might hate him initially but when you find out what he's been through and then find out who his 'girlfriend' really is? You'll find a smidgen of empathy for him, I guarantee it. But will you feel sorry for him? Will you excuse him, because of his childhood, is that an excuse? We'll leave the reader to make that decision. I feel this is more than your typical good vs evil story, sometimes we don't know who the good guys are, or even where they are. Sometimes we just have to wait for them, they'll show themselves, like Gavin eventually does, but you will still wonder, is he a good guy? Can he be forgiven, that's up to you and that's why I know this would make a great movie. It's totally subjective. And Saul is the demon we all love to hate, he's been compared to Tom Ellis' Lucifer although I based him on Cole Turner from Charmed I think that's a good comparison.
