The Princess Formerly Known as Snow White

Readers often ask me about my favorites. Favorite book that I’ve written. Favorite character I’ve invented. Favorite EVERYTHING. It’s so tough–like choosing a favorite child! But I will admit…I do have a favorite short story. To this date, my favorite story that I’ve ever written is “The Unicorn Hunter.” I dreamed up the concept a very long time ago:…

Princess Alethea, Strolling About the Web

Today feels like the TRUE first day of 2014 for me — yesterday was an exhausted flurry of getting Soteria out of the hospital and then working my aunt’s New Years party for 82 hours, so this is my day to jump back in swinging. AND BOY, AM I SWINGING. * First up: I have a blog post today…

Princess Unbound

I have another fun and quirky interview today — my hosts are the lovely bloggers at Pages Unbound. I also get to answer my favorite question: the “is there anything we forgot to ask you?”, or what I like to call The Blank Check. What did I decide to ask myself on this particular occasion? There’s only one way…

Interview Up at The Writers Voice

There are authors who don’t like interview questions. I suppose that, someday, I might get sick of them too. Maybe I’ve just always liked essay questions–maybe I just love talking about myself (and my books!). The best part about doing interviews is when questions come along that are just REALLY FUN TO ANSWER. I have to say, Emma’s questions…

20 Minutes with Princess Alethea at The Roundtable Podcast

What better way to celebrate the world NOT ending that listening to a very fun interview with me, hosted by the Roundtable Podcast?  (I certainly can’t think of anything.) Alethea Kontis – author of “Enchanted” (recently listed on Kirkus Reviews among the “Best Teen Books of 2012“), the award-winning “Alpha-Oops” series, and so much more – is a passionate…

AK and JKL in Wonderland at Sequential Tart

Janet and I just did a really great interview over at Sequential Tart. MAN they asked some good questions. I love the irony of doing interviews for The Wonderland Alphabet: Alice’s Adventures Through the ABCs and What She Found There — all my answers are wordier than the entire book. Heck, the title is almost wordier than the entire…
