"What would happen if Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Emma Newman and K.E. Mills (in her Accidental Sorcerer mode) got together and had a fairy tale themed writathon? This, my friend, is probably what would happen."
A wannabe fairy godmother, a heroine who won't marry the hero, and an ugly sister with grand plans. Things are going to get messy...!
Bea is a lowly cabbage fairy, but she dreams of being an official Fairy Godmother. So when Bea is finally given a chance to prove her worth she is determined to make a success of it. Besides, how hard can a Happy Ever After story be? Every girl wants to be rescued by a handsome man, don’t they?
Bea's heroine doesn't want to be in her story, and her hero is much more interested in the ugly sister. The same ugly sister who is trying to overthrow the Kingdom.
Suddenly, Bea must confront the fact that her characters are as real as she is - and just like her, they are determined to go their own way. The problem is, if Bea fails to finish the story, she faces a fate much worse than being put to sleep for a hundred years.
Now Bea must figure out what Happy Ever After really means - and whose Happy Ever After she's prepared to fight for...
“I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD SAY THIS BUT THANK YOU F. D. LEE FOR THE LACK OF SLEEP!”
