We use to own our backyard. Had the paperwork, the deed, made the payments, everything.
The Reginald came along.
Reginald, as far as rabbits go, stands his ground. Or grass.
He’s not pushy, not threatening, not intimidating.
Usually when we need him not to be.
Raccoons don’t bother him. He merrily munches away not noticing…or not acknowledging…their interests. Or ours.
Yeah, I remember, long ago, when it was our backyard…
The Goatmen of Aguirra is one of my favorite stories and, based on comments, popular among my readers (thankee!). It appears in my self-published Tales Told ‘Round Celestial Campfires, as an individual ebook The Goatmen of Aguirra: A Tale Told ‘Round Celestial Campfires, and was serialized in Piker Press in 2019.
I’m sharing it here because a friend is having some challenges using 1st Person POV, and The Goatmen of Aguirra uses 1st Person POV throughout.
Hope you enjoy.

Remember my mentioning that one little feller was going to be trouble?
His name is Samuel and I was right.
He’s a toe nibbler.

Give him time…or me coming out in my slippers…and he’s bound to get one of mine.
I recently had a fascinating week; Nine agents (including the ones who weren’t interested in my work) shared industry insights and offered suggestions for improving my pitch.
The is the third and last installment in the I Pitched Nine Agents in Two Days – Six said Yes! Here’s What I Learned series and deals with how the agents themselves helped me shape my pitch. The first installment dealt with Do’s and Don’t’s the agents shared with me during the day. The second installment details conversations I had with some of them and their thoughts on the industry and agenting.
Note the following deals with a fiction pitch.
