The Princess and the Stilettos for Valentine’s Day from Jina Bacarr on Vimeo.

When I was a little girl, a princess I wanted to be

So I got all dressed up looking for a prince to marry me

I searched high and low

But found no beau

As I got older

I got a little bolder

I dressed to kill

But no boyfriend still

What’s wrong with me? I wanted to know

I work so hard to be perfect and I’m always on the go

It’s your shoes, my best friend said, rolling her eyes

Princesses wear sexy shoes to please the guys

Like Cinderella? I said, with her slipper made of glass

Yes, you need sexy stilettos so he’ll make a pass

Not so, I assured her confident and wise

A smart girl knows how to get the guys

Oh yeah? she said, wrinkling her nose

Try it if you dare and forget your woes

So shopping I went stilettos to buy

And sexy undies to get a guy

In the end I got my prince wearing no shoes at all

Like Cinderella, I ran from the Ball

With my handsome prince hot on my tail

My stiletto in hand, looking for me to no avail

What happened, you ask? so curious and fine

How did I find my Valentine?

True, the sexy kicks helped me to catch his eye

But in the end it was something much more sly

Instead of trying so hard Miss Perfect to be

I ended up doing what came naturally

Like a dancing princess, I kicked off my shoes and danced all night

When this gorgeous man grabbed me and wouldn’t let me out of his sight

How did I know he was a man not to be missed?

Take one look at him. It was in his kiss…

We all love fairy tales — so why not a “Happily Ever After” Museum for #MuseumDay?

I love museums.

I’ve traipsed through the Louvre, hung out at the Franklin Institute in Philly, and faced off with an Egyptian queen up close and personal in Berlin.

History…so precious. It shapes us and our stories.

But what the other history?

The one that exists only in…dare I say it…fairy tales?

Wouldn’t you love to see Cindy’s glass slipper? Her ball gown? See if her pumpkin coach has plush, orange satin cushions?

And:

Sleeping Beauty’s 100-year-old bed

Snow White’s poison apple

The Evil Queen’s Talking Mirror

Rumpelstiltskin’s spinning wheel

Aladdin’s magic lamp

What fairy tale historical items would you like to see in “The Happily After Museum?”

I’d love to hear your ideas for our “Happily Ever After Museum!”

My latest princess story is no fairy tale:

It ain’t easy getting clean, even for a Princess…

Find out how Violetta copes on her road to sobriety in ROYAL DARE.

And as always, thank you to Sariah Wilson for creating this wonderful character in ROYAL DATE.

I fell in love with the Monterra family, especially Violetta. I call her the “misunderstood princess.” She has everything—looks, money and a title—yet she fell victim to the seductive power of drugs. Why? I wondered. What led her down this path?

I was intrigued tRD_KindleWorldso answer that question, but more importantly, I wanted to know what happened to Violetta when she went to rehab. How hard is it for a princess to get clean? And will she find her prince when she does?

I answer this question and more in my Kindle Worlds “The Royals of Monterra” story, ROYAL DARE.

I hope you enjoy it!

ROYAL DARE It ain’t easy getting clean. Even for a princess.

 

 

Limerick Day: The Princess and the Dragon

The Princess and the Dragon

There once was a princess so fair
Who was caught in the red dragon’s lair
Her drug of choice was meth
Which could only lead to death
So to rehab she went in Royal Dare.

~Jina

Asking for help is the hardest thing for an addict. The shame, the embarrassment and potential consequences for admitting addition often steer them away from seeking treatment.

Fortunately for the heroine in my Royals of Monterra Kindle Worlds story “Royal Dare,” Princess Violetta finally gets into rehab with the help of her family.

But it ain’t easy getting clean, even for a Princess…
