ca. late Feb 2019 - work started on the manuscript for Suicide Watch.
The conception of the idea for Suicide Watch came to Rellim in a flash a day or two after he had received the news in September 2018 one of his younger brothers committed suicide. At the time, Rellim was working on another horror novel The Child Snatcher (a work still in progress due to the voluminous nature of the structure). It wasn't until late February 2019 Rellim made the decision to shelve work on The Child Snatcher and begin work on Suicide Watch. The manuscript took approximately four months to write.
