  8. Dear friends of the Graveyards of the Banks trilogy

    A trilogy isn’t a trilogy until it has 3 volumes.

    This is the thought I’ve been waking up to for two years now.

    And now, finally, I’m dreaming no more…

    Graveyards of the Banks Volume 3 ‘Slaughterhouse Morning’ is now available for pre-order from Amazon.

    It concludes Nyla’s story at the Most Successful Bank in the Universe. And what a ride! Empires rise and fall inside the Bank, and Nyla is holding on for survival. Bosses and bullies fight, fire and get fired. Nyla is still there.

    The Bank makes the most money ever in history. Nyla is still there. And after all the troubles with co-worker Peter, a new man appears in Nyla’s life. Yes, the Bagman, high up financial executive and adviser to the rulers of this world, starts a whirlwind romance with Nyla, crossing the planet and the vast differences in power and social hierarchy.

    Can that work? What does it mean to serve the bankers all night on her shift, and then go to the opera with the Bagman? It’s exciting and confusing.

    And then, the world of the Bank itself is shattered. Are they going to crash? What will happen to Nyla and her friends?

    As the Banks recover, austerity is here to stay. Nyla loses her beautiful view over the city of London, her pay is cut, half of her colleagues are fired. And then the Bank starts outsourcing her department…

    What can Nyla do to survive? Is the Bagman the solution or the cause of the disaster?

    The book still has a lot of dark humour, but it will also touch your heart. Let’s hope that heart doesn’t get broken…

    This is the most dramatic book in the series.

    Thank you all for travelling the long road to the trilogy with me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting me and my books. I do want to tell my story to as many people as possible.

    I worked on these three books for almost 15 years, from the first idea to the final ‘THE END’ right now.

    With 5 Goldman Sachs executives in senior positions in the current US government, I feel that Nyla’s books are now required survival reading.

    Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you want any extra information, have any comments, or would like me to write a blog post, interview, little article… anything.

    Many years in the future, I will be able to say: these people were here, right at the start.

    Thank you again!

    Nyla

    “A modern-day Boschesque purgatory. It’s the death of a thousand cuts: a steady, minute chipping away of sensitivities, of sensibilities, of defences, of any sense of normality, that make the story get slowly but inexorably under your skin. It’s rampant capitalism’s ugly underbelly, a hugely apt and relevant tale for us right now.”

    Noel Maurice, indielit

    “Financial fiction meets Dante’s Inferno meets The Office. Wow. This was an amazing, moving book. The main character was me; I haven’t connected with a book like this in a long, long time.”

    Aaron Hoos, Financial Fiction

    “If you want to know more about investment banking from a totally unique perspective, and you dare, go for it. A fascinating book.”

    Olga Miret, Lit World Review

    “Are top investment banks ‘deliberate social Darwinist systems’? At the time this struck me as perhaps extreme, but reading Nyla’s experiences perhaps she did see the beast in the eye.”

    Joris Luyendijk, The Guardian

    NIGHT workers need stronger rights, the TUC said yesterday as it published research showing a massive rise in people regularly working the graveyard shift.

    Some 260,000 more people have joined the night-time workforce in the past five years.

    TUC general secretary Frances O’Grady (pictured) called for more protection for such people, with night work causing long-term health problems and disrupting family and social life.

    Britain’s night workforce has ballooned by 9 per cent to almost 3.2 million people, according to the study, with one in eight now working nights, rising to one in six for black workers.

    The TUC report shows that three out of five night workers are men and the highest rates of night working are in the north-west and Yorkshire, where one in nine workers do night shifts. Night working is most common in security, logistics, manufacturing and healthcare.

    In reminding Britain to turn the clocks back this Sunday, Ms O’Grady paid tribute to the “army of night workers” that includes firefighters and delivery drivers.

    She said: “As the clocks change, most of us can look forward to an extra hour in bed, but while we sleep, Britain’s late-night workforce will be busy.

    “Whether it’s firefighters keeping watch, or drivers delivering packages across the country, we all depend on the UK’s army of night workers.

    “Night work can play havoc with family and social life and have long-term health impacts. Many of the jobs are tough and often solitary.

    “That’s why night workers deserve strong rights and protections at work, to make sure they can get on with the job safely and happily.”
