GRUDGING GAME

So I'm a little bored waiting for Query Kombat submissions to roll in on Monday and I thought why not try a game. I haven't done any promotion for my books in a while, why not get on that? I have this tweet pinned to my twitter profile about Grudging.

Warrior/Soldier Dreamer Politician Philosopher Conscience Which will live to become Saint?

Each of the labels in the tweet describe one of the characters from Grudging. I wondered if anyone could match the correct character name to the label. This will be very tricky because, first, you have to have read Grudging and, second, some things don't become 100 percent apparent until the next book, Faithful (which nobody has read but me and my CP). I mean a few of the labels don't go in the obvious directions you'd expect, but some of them do. If no one gets the answer by Monday, I'll give a hint to help.  

Just comment with who you think goes with the labels and the first correct guess will win a prize. You can have a query critique from me, a signed copy of Grudging, or you can be a Query Kombat slush reader. Your choice. 

Hint: In Grudging there are only four point of view characters. In Faithful another woman gets added. Teresa is the philosopher.

Good luck!

    1. You have one correct. Some of the others are just in the wrong spot. :-)

    2. And your answer does work. But it's not the main way I see them. I hope you try again.

    Warrior/Soldier-Claire
    Dreamer-Ramiro
    Politician-Father Telo
    Philosopher-Julian

    1. Two right. And you missed my hint above that outs the philosopher. :-)

    2. Argh! I did miss that.

      Dreamer-Ramiro
      Politician-Julian
      Philosopher-Teresa
      Conscience-Beatriz

    2. Oh, my, really!?!?! I never win anything, and this is the third thing I've won this week (no, not that, unfortunately). Hmm. I'd love to slush read, but I think I'm too late for this round. How about a signed copy of your book? I'd LOVE to hold that in my hands. I'll DM details?
