Soul (soulkeeper720) | 36 comments Dear Justin,

What exactly do you want me to include in the
description. will it be all the Overview from the
publishers page?

for now i have updated the book cover.

Justin Tyers (justintyers) | 5 comments Thanks Soul - that's great.

Here's a shortened version of the blurb - could you paste it in?


‘Good will come of this.'

I don't know why I said that... the fire crew walked back down the hill - there was nothing they could do.

After a fire destroyed their house, Justin and his wife Linda irrationally decided to build a 15-ton classic yacht, as complete amateurs - starting with the trees and set off on a seven year exploration of the Celtic coasts of Scotland, France, Cornwall and Ireland, meeting the quirky, sometimes odd, but always entertaining characters who inhabit the shoreline.

Told through his beautiful narrative and exquisite illustrations, Justin Ruthven-Tyers' story is unexpected and extraordinary.

I have just updated your books description, please see if it's okay or let me know if you want to make any more changes into it.

Justin Tyers (justintyers) | 5 comments That's brilliant - thanks for being so quick. The only other thing I'd like added to the blurb are the links I've pasted into message 4 above. If that OK?

Best wishes
