The Head Above the Gate



The next RieTales story from Mocha Memoirs, The Head Above the Gate, is another of my fairy tale re-tellings. This time, with a Steampunk twist. The base story is The Goose-Girl. It was a lot of fun to update this story to include mechanical horses and airships.

We can learn a lot of lessons from fairy tales. In this case, about the value of loyalty, of love, and of ingenuity.

If you would like to read this story by itself, it is a gift for signing up for my Conn-Mann Chronicles newsletter. (There should be a pop-up to sign up if you are interested.)
