200 years ago, the invention of the camera allowed fairy folk to be trapped, packaged, and sold as bottled creativity. Folk quickly abandoned their magic castles and secret lairs for cities, hoping to blend into the mass of humanity without losing who they are, what makes them special.
Today, relations between mortals and Folk have settled into a delicate detente of hide and seek, catch as catch can. Authors grow fat from Folk labor, and refuge becomes harder to find as technology nibbles at the edges of the world’s mystery. It is a status quo that will end with the disappearance of dreams, when the last Folk vanishes in a flash.
That is, until an accident between Beauty, an empty camera, and a too-pink hubcap margarita changes everything.
This book was first written as the first in a series to Mr. Schneider's other novel, Undercaffeinated and Overexposed. Undercaffeinated ultimately incorporated many of the elements of Waiting for my Happily Ever After, and the finished novel has been revised and extensively rewritten to fit into the story continuum of that series.
