The Princess Blog Is Celebrating Two Years!

Two years ago today, I thought about how far my professional career had strayed from my true passion now that I was in my 30s. What was I doing to create my own happy ending? Sure, I had written a few books and had recently gotten married, but I didn't feel like I was living my life to the fullest and celebrating my love of fairy tales and storytelling. That's when I decided to start a blog. The topic for my blog was obvious. I've loved princess stories my entire life, and there are more of them out there now than ever. Starting The Princess Blog not only gave me an excuse to continue indulging in my fandoms, but it also forced me to write every day. I now have over 300 posts about everything from movies to books to lifestyle guides. It's gone through a few changes over the past couple of years, such as posting every week instead of every day as well as one major cosmetic makeover, but its basic philosophies remain the same as they have always been for the last two years.


I celebrated my previous anniversary with a sale on my novella Rebirth: A Faery's Tale by making it 99 cents on Amazon Kindle. What better way to celebrate my writing latest accomplishments than with another sale for my readers? Today only, the ebook for Of Land and Sea, my adaptation of "The Little Mermaid," is now available for 99 cents. Get it while you can! I wrote this book to give fans an opportunity to discover more of the world created by Hans Christian Andersen in the original fairy tale. It starts from the perspective of the princess that stole the prince from the little mermaid and ends with an exploration of what it means to be a Daughter of the Air. Of Land and Sea isn't the only book I'm celebrating today. Earlier this week, I released my latest novella, The Stolen Jewel. I am so happy to finally unleash the story of Princess Charlotte into the world because so much of it is inspired by my own life. The Stolen Jewel started its life on this blog and continued as a screenplay under the UCLA Professional Program for Screenwriting Online before ultimately finding its home on Amazon with my other books. If you would like to see how far my writing has come since Rebirth and Of Land and Sea, I implore you to check it out and leave me an honest review.


Ultimately, The Princess Blog is about you, the reader, and the content that you would like to see. There were a few ideas that I experimented with and decided to stop doing because they drew less interest than my other posts such as Story Saturday and The Princess Vlog. If you would like me to bring any of these back or start something new entirely, please let me know in the comments or on one of my social media pages such Facebook or Twitter. I'm always happy to receive feedback from my readers. One of my favorite things about this blog is that every so often, I receive review copies of books from other aspiring authors, which I am all too happy to read and analyze. If you partake in any princess-related craft that you would like me to promote, I would be happy to help. Life isn't always easy for starving artists like us, but we need to keep believing in our dreams so we can find our happy ending. If you have a specific topic that you would like me to write about or wish to support my blog, you can also check out the offers on my Patreon account.

In the early days, I wondered if it would be possible to keep up the momentum after I wrote about every princess-related topic I could think of. However, over the past two years, I learned that this beloved subject will never run out of fresh ideas as long as there are still people in the world who believe in empowering girls and women. In fact, there are more exciting princess events than ever within the coming year that I can't wait to share with you. Later this month, I will be attending the 30th anniversary celebration of The Little Mermaid at the D23 Expo. The celebration will continue on November 5th with the newly rescheduled television production of The Little Mermaid Live! on ABC starring Moana actress Auli'i Cravalho as Ariel. Another upcoming princess anniversary is The Swan Princess, which will have a pink carpet anniversary screening this October that I hope to attend and write about. The Swan Princess: Kingdom of Music, the latest in an endless line of sequels, was released yesterday, and I will review it soon. My sister site, The Jewel Riders Archive, is planning a big surprise for the 25th anniversary of Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders that I'm also eager to participate in, so keep an eye out for that as well.

The Princess Blog has opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities to chase after my dreams on my own terms instead of waiting for a Fairy Godmother to produce a magical employment contract. I don't need to get paid to do what I love as long as it continues to make me happy. I hope I make my readers happy as well. Which event are you most excited for in the coming year? Let me know in the comments. I am always open to suggestions for new content and media. If you do happen to take advantage of today's sale on Of Land and Sea: The Untold Story of The Little Mermaid or the new release of The Stolen Jewel, please let me know what you think with a review. If you would like to see more books from me in the future, feel free to sign up for my author mailing list. Here's to another magical year of dreams and inspiration!
