It’s crunch time. So what am I doing? Being seduced by John Simpson’s darned fantasy character quiz.
Sigh. I have no will power.

Galadriel is a character in the Middle-Earth universe. You can read more about her at the Galadriel Worshippers Army.
Sixteen-year old Gentyl dreams of joining her aunt’s elite cavalry unit. A demon lord and a sorceress have kidnapped the king to trigger a civil war, but a senile-acting sorcerer recruits Gentyl to solve a string of murders — and to find the king, before the kingdom is destroyed.
Dear Mr. or Ms. Agent,
(Personal note about why agent is being approached.)
I’m seeking representation for PALADIN’S PRIDE, my 135,000-word epic fantasy about a sixteen-year-old girl who dreams of qualifying for her aunt’s elite cavalry unit.
Allies who joined forces thirty years ago to defeat the demon armies are now poised to destroy each other, just as the demon lord and the sorceress planned when they kidnapped the king. Gentyl just wants to get through two years in the military academy and apply to the cavalry. It’s going to be a long two years in an academy that doesn’t want women. Most people especially don’t want M’Eiryn women since the king’s M’Eiryn guard was blamed for the kidnapping. Hope of ever advancing fades, when she’s assigned to guard a senile-acting sorcerer with a penchant for irritating nobles, botching spells and livening things up with fireworks. She realizes he isn’t as senile as he acts after he recruits her to help him find the king, but each new clue only leads to another body.
Now someone is trying to add them to the list of unsolved murders.
