I’m waiting on yeast to “proof” for the bread so messing a bit before I get it going.
I’ve been doing some thinking today. Well, that last few days, really.
I’ve thought about deleting the blog. Someone mentioned, don’t remember who, agents and editors may be lurking in the blogs and if you aren’t prepared to have your finest work up, you shouldn’t blog.
I don’t engage in navel gazing very often, but I do enough it would probably make an agent run away screaming.
I also don’t spit polish everything I post. I blog mainly to share some writing, share a laugh and prime the pump as it were. Once I get a few words out in a blog, my mind is in writing mode. I wish I could be witty like Pam (A Novel Woman) or classy and professional like Beth Shope, but I am like a Christmas puppy, who is just happy to be here and out of the box.
Anyway, bread is rising now, so I need to be writing.
The following might make it in the synopsis.
The Horse Guards have defended the people of Eponia for hundreds of years and never has their skill and honor been more needed.
Years of border wars and skirmishes ended when the Eponians and Talmarands joined forces to defeat a demon army. The fragile alliance strengthened with thirty years of inter-marriages and prosperity, but that’s all about to change.
Erokath, the demon lord, is back and this time he and his caller ensure the alliance will be completely destroyed by kidnapping the king and laying the blame on his sole surviving personal guard. The Eponian guard is murdered before he can clear his name. Now the Talmarands are ready to exact revenge on the Eponians in their midst, neighbor or not.
One hero in the family is enough and, unlike her famous aunt, Gentyl isn’t the heroic type. She’s too small, too young and entirely too accident-prone. Nonetheless, she has always dreamed of joining the elite Horse Guards her aunt commands.
