Missing Maggie Mae

On Saturday night, Dark-Hunter posse member Maggie Mae Short was watching fireworks. She posted about it on Facebook. Apparently, her town had a bunch left over from the 4th of July, so they were setting them off in honor of some local event. She looked out her window, was surprised by a professional light show in rainbow colors, and…

Blast from Dragon*Con Past

My friend Marisol recently sent me a few pictures she had taken at Dragon*Con last year, including this one of me right before the Hour with Sherrilyn Kenyon panel, showing off my lovely new green corset and the gorgeous cover to my new novel. I’ve been going to Dragon*Con since 1996. THIS YEAR, 2012, is the first year I…

Dragon*Con 2012 Limited Edition Swag

A bunch of us are over on Twitter (@aletheakontis) chatting about free books, swag, and the downsides of being generous. But don’t concentrate on the bad…let’s think about the good stuff! Like always, I will have lots of free swag to give away at Dragon*Con. There will be the 48 bags of freebies for Princess Alethea’s Traveling Sideshow, as…

Alethea’s 2012 Dragon*Con Schedule

Hello, everybody! It’s that time again — Dragon*Con 2012 is almost upon us! (I know because I’m already haveing anxiety dreams about packing.) Here’s my programming schedule for the convention. Two things to note: 1.) When I am not programming (or shopping), I will be with Janet K. Lee at her table in Artists’s Alley. We will have lots…

Princess Alethea’s Traveling Sideshow Video!

Many many MANY thanks to Jean-Marie Ward (jmward14 on YouTube), who filmed and edited this video of Princess Alethea’s Traveling Sideshow at Dragon*Con this year!

A Hellaciously Long Dragon*Con Post

There are those days in our lives that we consider our Best Days. I’m not sure I could pick out one as The Best Day Ever, but there are certainly ones I will never forget: my high school graduation, Orson Scoot Card’s Boot Camp, selling my first book, really kissing Joe for the first time. The Saturday of Dragon*Con…

Dragon*Con 2011 Pictures

Yes, the camera got washed with the Fairy Godboyfriend’s kilt, so it’s a good thing that I took a ton of pictures with my phone this trip. There are quite a few decent photos, especially of the fabulous costumes at the Harry Potter Yule Ball. It was an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING TIME. Possibly the best Dragon*Con ever. But then, I…

She’s Back, Baby!

That’s right — I’m back from Dragon*Con, the Internet is back up, and now my website is cooperating so I can post again! Of course, I still have that pesky bookstore day job (and Fairy Goddaughter the Elder’s Birthday) so you won’t get all the info at once…but you’re okay with that, and I thank you for your patience….

Dragon*Con Report Delayed

The Internet is down, again, just like it was when we moved in. Every time this happens, it’s a fiasco with Verizon. I think the last time they had to send out a total of eight trucks. I know because I wrote everyone’s name down. Verizon also hiked our bill up almost $100 because we cancelled the free trial…
