Sinking Deeper

  1. Sinking Deeper
    Or My Questionable (Possibly Heroic) Decision to Invent a Sea Monster

    Sinking Deeper New Cover

    SINKING DEEPER is my very first young adult novel.

    It is a story that begins with a jailbreak which leads to an impromptu caber toss which results in an unfortunate dory-sinking – and that’s just the first chapter.

    Let me read to you from the catalog copy…

    The tiny fishing community of Deeper Harbour is in deep trouble—and so is fourteen-year-old Roland MacTavish. Roland’s mom wants to move with him to Ottawa, away from his father, his weird friend Dulsie, and his even weirder grandfather, Angus. So Roland does what any sane teenager would do: He invents a sea monster. Unfortunately, the scheme quickly spins out of Roland’s control, and he has to go to greater and greater lengths to keep up the illusion. And then Roland must deal with a situation far more terrifying than any sea monster. As moving as it is irresistibly funny, Steve Vernon’s portrait of Roland and Deeper Harbour is perfect for anyone who’s ever been stuck badly enough to do something awesomely, brilliantly, heroically stupid.

    You like the sound of that? I sure do. I’ve had a lot of success with my regional books – with three ghost story collections and one children’s picture book – but SINKING DEEPER is the first I’ve book I’ve written that I feel really has a chance to make a mark in the Canadian book market.

    If you want to read what other folks are saying about SINKING DEEPER there are several reviews online already.

    Can’t afford to buy a book? No worries. Bills are bills and life is life and I’ve been broke far too many times to not forget how important a dollar can be. Ask for a copy at your local library. If they can’t get it be prepared to get uppity with them. Vent your frustration and bang on the head librarian’s desk (I bet you thought I was going to say bang your head on the head librarian’s head) and demand that they add a copy or two of SINKING DEEPER to their bookshelves.

    They will thank you for it afterwards…

    …when you stop.

    Yours in storytelling,

    Steve Vernon
