The Fairy's Tale has been described as 'Cinderella meets 1984' Buttercup Snowblossom goes by the name Bea. Buttercup is a fairy name, and Bea wants to be taken seriously. So far, however, the only person who seems to be taking Bea seriously is her landlord, a drunken gnome, and only then because he wants her rent. Life as cabbage fairy in the big city is not what Bea has imagined it would be. When Bea ran away from home, she was certain she would find success in the city. She was convinced she would be snapped up by the General Administration, whizzed through training, and be a Fiction Management Executive (godmother class) before her first year was out. Before she knew it, she'd be in the human world, running stories and making a name for herself. But that was then, and this is now. Five years later, and Bea is nothing more than a plot-watcher, a skivvy for the real story-tellers. And so, bored and frustrated, Bea begins to take matters into her hands, making little changes to the stories. Nothing big, nothing serious, nothing that would get her into trouble. Well... until this last change, anyway... Even Bea can see that making a giant wall of thorns grown up around a castle might be a bit more that a little change. And now it's the middle of the night, and there's a loud banging on her door... The Fairy's Tale was rated 'Outstanding' in the 24th Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards (2016) for Plot and Story Appeal; Structure, Organization and Planning; Character Appeal and Development; Voice and Writing Style, and Spelling, Punctuation and more
