Dinner is Coming

First of all, here’s an update for those obsessively following the progress of Onion. At 6 months, he’s finally old enough to join Leeloo in her Happy Place. Its a far cry from the...



I had a long disagreement/argument (disagrument?) with my husband the other day. He thinks that the phrase ‘Carpe Diem’ means ‘Party like its 1999’. I swear, he’s going to show up with  trucker hat...


Rose Tint My World

I don’t remember the first time I saw The Rocky Horror Picture Show at a midnight screening, but I sure remember the last time. It was close to the end of the 1990s.  The...


Beware the Earworm

Comic Con continues without me

We’re deep in the creamy center of SDCC right now, so  thought I’d tell the story of how I met the unicorn – Joss Whedon. He exists and he shines with his own clear,...


Comic Con retrospective week continues

” A delightful urban fantasy with heart and humor! …Kim Alexander was also the narrator, and she did a perfect job! I am very impressed. She is as excellent at narrating her own book as Neil Gaiman and Bryan Cranston. Kim Alexander brings the story to life with vigor, humor, and great pacing.”
Heather, Audible Customer

“A unicorn walks into a bar….”

That is not a joke.

Look, I’m a bartender. I have nothing to do with the xenos. I don’t care if it’s an elf or a vampire – as long as they don’t bother me, I steer clear. I have my reasons – you can see them in the scars on my neck.

I never wanted to get involved. But my life changed for the second time when I saved the life of a unicorn. I made an enemy of something old – old and evil, and whatever it was, it’ll be back for another try. I also made a friend when I decided to help March. He’s only been a human man for a day. I’m responsible for him now. He’s my friend…and maybe something more. Maybe a lot more.

It doesn’t matter to me that he isn’t magical anymore. I don’t care if he’s not Pure.

But he does.

From best-selling author Kim Alexander comes a modern fairy tale of magic, love, and redemption.
