Fast Forward TV Interview is Now Live!

The great thing about Snow Days isn’t just how much *you* get done, it’s how much *other people* get done when removed from the distraction of their pesky day jobs.

And…VOILA! My Fast Forward TV Interview is now live. (And the links in Monday’s Fairy Tale Rant have been updated to reflect this.)

Enjoy! xox

The Pros and Cons of Princesshood

Musician Jonah Knight and I met at this year’s Mysticon in Roanoke. I immediately fell in love with Jonah after finding out that he wrote a musical score for James Maxey’s novel Nobody Gets the Girl. Jonah reciprocated this awkward affection by offering me a feature spot on his “Pros & Cons” podcast with Mikey Mason.

“Pros & Cons” discusses topics specifically related to and concerning conventions in particular, so our conversation sticks to the topic of marketing and self-promotion within convention appearances. I say “conversation” lightly, since I feel like  talked WAY TOO FREAKING MUCH during this podcast. Only…I guess that’s the point, right?

And I suppose I didn’t do too badly, since Jonah called this week’s episode one of his favorite so far. SCORE!

Will it be your favorite too? Click here to have a listen. Enjoy!

Happy Christmas Workshop Episode 43

In the midst of the traveling and the three Christmasses I didn’t have the chance to post about this yesterday — part two of the fabulous Roundtable Podcast that started with the 20-minute interview. Now, we get into the much longer, nitty-gritty of live-workshopping a fellow author’s work in progress…

************

Alethea Kontis – author of the award-winning “Enchanted“, “The Wonderland Alphabet“, The “Alpha-Oops” series, and so much more – returns to the Big Chair to help workshop a rich luxurious story idea offered up by podcaster, voice actor, authoress (and so much more), Lauren “Scribe” Harris. With Justin Macumber as guest co-host (author of “Haywire” and “A Minor Magic“, founder and co-host of the Dead Robots’s Society podcast, and co-host on the Hollywood Outsiders podcast), we dive in to a delightful frothy discussion, inspirations bouncing around like pixies on egg nog, taking Lauren’s already fabulous idea and festooning it liberally in Literary Gold. (and for more writerly delights, make sure you check out Alethea’s Showcase Episode!)

Listen to the workshop podcast here!

Princess Alethea Answers 11 Questions

Catherine Gracey contacted me via Ye Olde Facebook and asked if I wouldn’t mind answering 11 Questions for her “Catherine Asks” blog. Well, sure! Why not? So I did. And now I’m telling you about them

They’re not the questions you might expect, so they’re not the answers you might expect either.

Curious? Well, you’ll just have to pop on over and see what it’s all about!
