I may not know the significance of the magpie being over there but I do know why Tippy is here.
(This book may not from your perspective be non-fiction but in my opinion does fit the dictionary's definition of non-fiction)
In spite of the different things I have done in my 70 odd years I still consider myself to be a Lands & Survey Shepherd and all my writing is from that perspective. Subsequently and perhaps the more you read the better you will understand why I articulate my words as I do and cut me a bit of slack with regards my spelling, punctuation and grammar, all the mistake you would not expect to find in a professionally written and produced book.
None of my books are pretending to be something that they are not, in that they are not stamped with the brand of conformity, therefore don't conform to what the majority consider professionally written, edited, printed or glued together, because these a5 sized soft covered books are written then totally and solely produced by myself (Bob Simmonds.)
In this section I have endeavored to write a synopsis for this book, I have tried to be honest , but truthfully writing about something you have written yourself is rather difficult. Always in the back of your mind is the knowledge or the fact, that if it's under done the book will not sell, but if it is over rated and the buyer is disappointed it won't be long before they will justifiably claim to have been RIPPED OFF and I certainly don't want that to happen.
Previously when I was randomly selecting a page or two for the excerpts I could pick out the pages that I felt would better clinch the deal, however now by taking them in sequence while I feel it's more honest it probably is not such a good idea when trying to convince somebody to buy it.
