Does the office building in the novel exist: Yes it’s in Salcedo Village.
Did you name this character after me: If I went to high school with you, yes.
How many people did it take to put this together: 4. Me (author), an editor, a photographer, and a cover designer.
Did you pay any of them: Not at the time, but now my editor and photographer are getting a percentage of anything the book earns. The cover designer (my husband) legally owns half of anything I make anyway.
Ebooks sold in 1 year: Over 4,000
Paperbacks sold so far: Over 30
Thank you, friends and readers, for making this such an excellent year. There’s a lot still to be done to promote awareness about the book locally, but I’ll find time to do that eventually.

Congrats! <br /><br />I found your name on a group on Goodreads and when I saw this title i had to have it. (I'm a fairy tale- aholic). <br /><br />I loved it. I felt like I was Ellie. Except Black and Barbadian. lol. I'm quite tempted to try to find a job organising travel 🙂 <br /><br />I'd like to do an interview and giveaway on my blog (aclairedawn (dot) blogspot (dot) com), email

Hi Mina!<br /><br />My name is Lacy Camey 🙂 I am lacycameywrites.com.

Claire – Next time I re-read Fairy Tale Fail I <i>will</i> think of black, Barbadian Ellie. Love your blog, by the way. I enjoy reading about people discovering cultural quirks, things that you only really pick up if you're there.<br /><br />Lacey – Congratulations and good luck! Emailing you in a bit. 🙂
