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.

As always, PLEASE ENJOY AND SHARE!

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

“The Monster & Mrs. Blake” on Cast of Wonders

Hello, world!

I’m back in town (for a little bit) and feeling better (finally!), so now I’m catching up on all the fun news. SO MANY AMAZING THINGS HAVE HAPPENED THIS MONTH!

Worry not, I’ve been calling Mom and telling her in person for most of this, as I do when I’m not able to blog every day…or when I’m sworn to secrecy. 🙂

But I forgot to tell even Mo about this one — Cast of Wonders was so thrilled to find out that I had some podcasting talents of my own that they asked me to narrate my spooky kids story “The Monster & Mrs. Blake”!

I love this story — it was originally intended to be for a podcast that James Maxey was putting together for Codex, back before podcasting was cool…and before I had any sort of software or hardware to make such a thing possible.

So it is my extreme honor to introduce this story to the world…in the format it was originally intended! Thank you, Cast of Wonders, for making this possible!
