I have completed the first draft of DD3, which has a provisional title of Desire and Despair, and I'm well on the way to finishing the second draft. Hopefully I will be in a position to send that version of the story to my editors by the end of the week, as there is only one more semi-final tonight and then on Sunday the final. (For those of you who have been off- planet for the last three weeks I am referring to the World Cup of The Beautiful Game, aka football/soccer).
Derykb and Old Rotorhead have both agreed to complete another Tour of Duty, and they will be reinforced by RonDownUnder,who has kindly agreed to give an antipodean view of the story.
The time taken for editing chapters,and then formatting them for SOL, can take as long as a piece of string, so I have no estimated time of publishing. At present there are 24 chapters of the book which I intend posting in pairs, with a day's interval between. Watch this space for news of when the first posting will be made.
Don't cry for me Argentina; but I'm blubbing buckets for Brazil.
