Title: RED: THE VALERIE BENNETT DIARIES
Genre: NA Fantasy
Word Count: 81,053

Query:

Dear Reader, I’m sorry to say the fairy tales you know are wrong.  Valerie would know since she was there. These diaries tell the tale of a girl more commonly known as Red Riding Hood in her land. She wakes upon the shore to be found by siblings, whose lives are about turn upside down as they start to believe in legends and magic.

When the Queen of Hearts goes missing, Valerie must stop the big, bad Lieutenant Wolf from rising to power. She visits classic figures like the Frog Prince and Snow White as she travels to regain her memories and more importantly to protect the people the royals wish to step on. Her story is a new twist on the old battle for who will rule the fairest lands.

First 250:

Once upon a time, there were rolling hills of grass as far as the eye could see. An endless sea of green, moving gently in tune with the fluffy clouds that rolled along in no hurry. In the distance was a farm, which looked well kept, its pearly white fence perfectly intact. Yet, there was something odd about it even from a distance. Both the farmer and his flock were missing. Only two living souls were around. I stood on the left, sharing a hilltop with a man who claimed the opposite side. My hooded red cloak was short in the front and just kissed the floor in the back.  The ends blew gently in the wind as I stared down the man across from me. He was dressed very differently than me, in a black and gold trimmed outfit of the Royal House.

“The better to end you with,” I fiercely said words once spoken to me.

“That’s what you think, Valerie,” the man said, quickly moving his hand out towards me.
Cascading ribbons of magic erupted from his palm as I moved my right hand up to block. The spell crashed a few feet in front of me, wrapping around an invisible dome that shimmered gold when touched. I strained a little, splitting my focus as I brought up my other hand. Arcana circles appeared around my wrist, glowing bright before two larger circles formed. They spun around before they locked in place around the inner symbols.
