Cast off; ripped off; cheesed off.
When redundancy hits for the second time in two years, an ex-bank manager finds himself thrust into the world of self-employment. His funds drained from a ten month period of unemployment, he searches for a business with a low start-up cost.
He decides upon establishing a local petcare business.
Through a series of pet-related vignettes, DAMP DOGS & RABBIT WEE presents an amusing, charming and compassionate look at the life of a pet professional. OK – dog walker.
Proving there’s more to dog walking than simply walking dogs, DAMP DOGS & RABBIT WEE is a humorous, light read that will appeal to all pet owners, animal lovers and yes, dog walkers.
I have previously written my, now dormant, LOUD HORIZON music blog and was, for a seven year period, a regular contributor to Artrocker magazine.
Most people will be familiar with the saying which proclaims that ‘everyone as a book within them,‘ or words to that effect. Indeed, author Christopher Hitchens is accredited with the expanded version of: ‘Everyone has a book in them and that, in most cases, is where it should stay.’
Well, perhaps. Time and sales and Amazon reviews will tell.
It was never really the intention to publish Damp Dogs & Rabbit Wee. I started writing it more as a personal exercise just to see if I could write something mildly amusing, with a view to embarking upon a more ambitious comedy-fantasy at some point in the future
However, I was encouraged by the feedback and support I received from other writers and, like me, wanna-be writers, on the Scribophile and Authonomy websites. And with the ease (*) of self-publication these days, I thought:
“Why the hell not?”
And so here it is. Damp Dogs & Rabbit Wee.
If it makes you smile, or cry for that matter, then please let me know and scribble a wee review on the book’s page on Amazon.
And tell your friends. (Only if you enjoy it. Otherwise, let them find out for themselves.)
