If Anyone Should Ask…
My Elevator Pitch

Choices Meant for Gods is a fantasy story about a young lady who's been on the run from a madman all her life—and when she finally decides to stand and fight, she discovers she's wrapped in centuries of prophecy that involve protecting the gods themselves.

In the publishing industry, writers must summarize their 170,000-word novels in pithy one-sentence glosses like the one above so literary agents can make snap decisions whether or not to represent both the writer and the work before publishers. Sounds glamorous, doesn't it? It's taken me three years to write that sentence. I've written others similar to it, but I like the one above today. I encourage ya'll to use it if anyone should ask, "Hey, what's this Choices Meant for Gods by Sandy Lender about?"

"Some days, you just want the dragon to win."
