About

The Sovereign Duchy of Bellandria is ruled by its Grand Duchess, a mid-30s writer and folk musician. The Duchess is benevolent and wise; as of press time there have been no uprisings or petitions for her disposal. 

What We Offer
  • Stories! - fiction (typically of the speculative variety), creative non-fiction, poetry, and personal blogging. And smut, if that's your thing!
  • Songs! - solo voice and acoustic guitar, with occasional guest stars; folk, Celtic, ren faire standards, filk, and lots of Christmas music when the time is right
  • Shenanigans! - ridiculous jokes, strong feelings, loud opinions, outdated slang, excessive adverbs, open discussion of mental illness, creative swearing, and occasional bursts of poignancy
  • The Duchess' Loyalty Program - earn points towards bigger and better things. Find more information here!

About the Grand Duchess
The Duchess is Rykie Belles.The Duchess performs at renaissance festivals as part of musical acts SERFs, Inc; The Long and Short of It; and The Voices of Virtue. She has read her writing on stage with Write Club Atlanta, and The Bleux Stocking Society, and performed on stages from the large to the tiny. She has been published in Strange Horizons, in the limited edition Write Club Atlanta anthology Tender Bloodsport Volume 1, and on her parents' fridge. Her fics on AO3 average a 10% kudos rate! As a day job she is a theatre administration professional (which is a fancy way to say "she works in the box office").

The Duchess and her husband co-rule The Sovereign Joint Duchies of Bellandria-Haughelstein, also home to Their Ladyships the Cats: Baroness Mei-Mei Jeyne and the late Dame Lamby-toes Washburn (RIP).
