Fairy Tale Fail 2017 edition

Chic Manila

Fairy Tale Fail, my second book (and the first that I self-published), has a new edition out! What that means: It’s got a new cover featuring Gio Gahol and Gab Pangilinan, and an epilogue that’s a little bit hotter. Just a little, haha.

If you go back into my blog archives you’ll see that this book was what started “it all” for me. It changed the way I publish, the way I write, and introduced me to readers that I’m in touch with to this day. Thank you for loving Lucas and Ellie!

Ellie Manuel is a hopeless romantic, stuck in a cubicle all day. She’s in her twenties and should be having more fun. But instead of doing what she really wants, like traveling wherever her Philippine passport can take her, she’s hung up on the guy who dumped her for not being “ambitious enough.” Someone should tell her that there are other cool guys — who probably even eat at the same office cafeteria! — who would encourage her just to be her fabulous self.

FAIRY TALE FAIL won the 2012 Filipino Readers’ Choice award for Chick Lit. Part of the Chic Manila series, but can be read as a standalone.

**This 2017 edition has a new cover and a new epilogue that has a bit more heat. (Just a little.)

Cover designed by Tania Arpa, photography by Pach Urrea, styling by Nio Manzano, cuteness by Gio Gahol and Gab Pangilinan
