Happy Hump Day, everyone! I wish I could say mine was going good, but it’s been one of those days. Maybe you can help me out with at least one of my problems:)
Below is a very very very … very rough draft of the blurb to my upcoming release. It’s the first in a comedic fantasy series about an outcast named Mongrel who is trying to unite the various kingdoms. Any advise would be helpful … even grammatical advises. Thank you in advance!
Blurb: After 1,001 years of war and hostilities among the six—er—seven kingdoms, Wizard White Beard proposes an alternative to war—a scavenger hunt! The winner determines the fate of all. The rules are clear: no weapons, no bloodshed, just clean, honest competition. Simple enough, but when contestants refuse to follow them, it’s up to Mongrel, an orphan with an unconventional upbringing, to bring about real peace. With the help of a hodgepodge group of outcasts including a gentle ogre, a magically-challenged elf, a feisty young dwarf appropriately named for her weapon of choice, and a wizard’s apprentice, who doesn’t even want to be a wizard, Mongrel just might stand a chance of winning the competition—that is, if he can survive!
A hilarious tale of magic, mayhem, and outrageous situations, BLANK offers a fresh spin on the classic fantasy universe while subverting everyone’s favorite fantasy tropes along the way.
