Kylie Betzner’s New Arthurian Parody Launches Today
Kylie Betzner, aka LitChick, has a popular book blog and is well known in book circles as a thoughtful and insightful reviewer of all types of literature. A lifelong avid reader, Betzner has finally penned her own novel, “The Quest for the Holy Something or Other” which was released today.
Enter the Realm of Camelot, home of famous legends: King Arthur, Sir Lancelot, and Merlin–but this isn’t their story. Meet Pig, a humble gong farmer who dreams of the glories of Camelot. Her dreams become reality–or so she thinks–when she becomes Sir Kay’s page. What starts off as a joke soon becomes the adventure of Pig’s life when Merlin sends the knights on a quest for the Holy Gift Box–er–Bread Basket–whatever it is! On their quest, they face many knight-worthy, and some not-so-knight-worthy, foes: an insane pond dweller, several greedy salespeople, and an overzealous cache seeker, all the while fighting against time, mostly each other, and the most infamous villain of all—change. The Quest for the Holy Something or Other is a fresh and funny take on a well-known legend, with engaging characters, some rather good jokes, and something that starts with S, but it isn’t important.
Pre-release copies are already getting rave reviews. It is available on Kindle for $2.99, in paperback from Amazon for $11.37 and in bookstores.
Kylie will also be doing a round of in-person book signings and events in the Midwest. For more information about online and in-person events, see Kylie’s blog,
