Princess Alethea Rants: “Fitcher’s Bird”

Interesting data point: This week’s fairy tale rant video is 9 minutes long as opposed to the typical 5 minutes. I still keep the rant to about 5 minutes, but then there is a brief explanation of how my short story “Blood From Stone” incorporates both this fairy tale as well as the historical real-life of serial killer Gilles de Rais.

Most of my fairy tale videos have 60-100 views. This video has TWELVE.

Looks like size does matter. Even on YouTube.

As always, share and enjoy! xox

And no…she’s still not home yet.
