Originally started as an entry into the November 2013 NaNoWriMo - New Novel Writing Month competition - As part of a challenge to write a 50,000 word novel in just 30 days, "ONE MAN AND HIS DOGMA" has since evolved into a novel in excess of 100,000 words over a 2 year period, that has tested and pushed me to be the best writer i can hope to be.
The novel tells the story of our protagonist James Edmunds.
James is a widowed husband and bereaved father to a wife and child tragically lost in childbirth.
Struggling to come to terms with life after his loss, James is unaware that figures from myth, religion and legend are after him to become their new figurehead in a cosmic game of Chess now approaching its grand finale.
A story that unfolds over five distinct timelines, involving Gods, Devils, The Riders of The Apocalypse and an entire cast of creatures from Myth and Scripture, alongside a man who has lost everything and just wants to be left with his loneliness and loss.
This is an epic story of Love, Loss, Retribution and Tea.
Lots and lots of Tea.
