Author's Description

Bartholomew "Bubba" Batts needs a job. His pro football career tanked, along with his two marriages, and he's lost every job he's had. When he answers an ad for the position of "knight," he finds himself in an alternate world, where the fate of a kingdom, a desperate princess, and a beautiful lady-in-waiting all depend on him. Too bad he has no idea what he's doing...

Why I Chose it

Even if this story isn't your kind of thing, go check out the first paragraph. It's a great example of how to make a character who is objectively unlikable into a sympathetic protagonist. By the end of that paragraph, we're rooting for him!

Who Might Like This

Anyone who likes humorous fantasy with a likable character on a redemption arc should read this!

Unrelated Griping

Still haven't updated the "Featured in Kindle Vella" list — I think it's been over a week — and now one of the ones featured is lacking a cover image... Don't make me get a job with this software group just to bash it into shape!
