Princess Alethea’s Fairy Tale Theatre: Episode 25

Episode 25: “The Marvelous Minstrel”

The Marvelous Minstrel…or perhaps the PSYCHOPATH MINSTREL, because seriously…this guy is a jerk. The ASPCA would *not* approve. And, quite frankly, neither do I.

Check out Princess Alethea’s Rant about this fairy tale HERE.

Star-Crossed Princess

Beauty & DynamiteLynda K. Scott hosted me on her “Star-Crossed Romance” blog, which features Futuristic, Fantasy, and Paranormal Romance.

Of course, my essay took the subject for a spin, and I decided to discuss magic and romance in the real world…as outlined by the first volume of my memoirs, Beauty & Dynamite.

Beauty & Dynamite will be released mid-April from Alliteration Ink in a completely revised and updated edition. I’m so excited!

There is not a preorder link up yet, but rest assured, I will let you know as soon as it’s available.

Princess Alethea Featured on Wattpad

"The Monster & Mrs. Blake" by Alethea Kontis, cover art by FuseliI am so excited that my short story “The Monster & Mrs. Blake” is a Featured Story on Wattpad this week!

This story is suitable for all ages, would make a great PIXAR movie, and was originally meant to be read aloud as a podcast, so I highly encourage you to read it aloud to your children. Preferably before they go to bed tonight. 🙂

Click here, or on the cover illustration at the right to read the story (for free!) on Wattpad.


And yes, my memory of this Far Side comic was indeed one of the inspirations for the story:
