Here’s a revised version in case you ladies have any further suggestions before I post it on WriteOnCon:
Prince Calder departs to rescue the kidnapped Princess Arianna. He expects dangers. But there is one thing he does not expect: the narrator.
Refusing to narrate even one more boring quest plot, Pennington orders Calder to ignore the kidnapped princess. He will create a more engaging story. Calder doesn’t believe him and, determined to be a hero, refuses.
Then Pennington completely rewrites Calder’s backstory. Suddenly Crown Prince Calder…isn’t. He’s lost his inheritance and the confidence that he’s not a storybook character in one sentence.
Now Calder’s story is no longer as straightforward as he thinks. Does Arianna still need to be rescued? Is he surrounded by friends or by enemies? Is he the Crown Prince or the youngest son?
Losing his sense of identity, he clings to his quest, determined – at all costs – to beat the narrator and end his story, his way.
THE NARRATOR is an 80,000* word young adult fantasy told from multiple points of view.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
