‘The Goddess Fortune is the Devil’s servant ready to kiss anyone's arse.’
I have finally finished the first draft of the final book of The Main Man Trilogy, so my immediate future will be taken up with copious re-reads and editing.
But what does the future hold for the characters who feature in this saga?
The Goddess has made her final throw of the dice, but who, if anybody, has benefited from her capriciousness? There's only one way to find out. Book 3 is due to be published in early 2021. If you have not already read the first two Books, click on the titles below for the links.

I am now about three-quarters of the way through the final book of The Main Man Trilogy! This is the point, when working on a book, where I get the most excitement out of writing. The lives of the main characters appear to be going in a particular direction and the subplots appear to have been resolved.
Now is the time to draw breath before it all kicks off. Because now is the dizzying buildup to the climax and the inevitable final resolution.
But is it inevitable?
Through the whole month of July you can purchase His Willing Marionettes at a 75% discount. Click here for details.

‘The Goddess Fortune is the Devil’s servant ready to Kiss any ones Arse’:
quote by William Blake.
With the Covid-19 lockdown, together with the closure of my local tennis club, I was expecting to fly along with my writing of The Devil’s Servant. I had just finished Part 1, so starting on Part 2 was going to be easy.
Except that the opening chapter involved two of my main characters attending a funeral, which I wasn’t in the right frame of mind to embark on just then. I also found it difficult to write about my fictional friends going about any sort of business – fun or otherwise – while everybody in the real world was stuck at home.
But, after a couple of weeks of inactivity, I finally knuckled down, and I’m now eagerly about to embark on Part 3. The end is finally in sight! But, as I am nearing a successful conclusion, can this be said of my much-loved antihero, Darren? (Yes, I really do love him.) As minor characters from his past start to re-emerge to both embarrass and threaten him, who, if any of them, will prove to be his Nemesis?
The Roman Goddess Fortuna has come to represent life’s capriciousness, randomly dispensing good or ill fortune. So, as she prepares to take the final throw of her dice…?
