Development Pitch

Cinderfella is a coming of age book for those who love fairy tales but are older,or young at heart. This story has all the beauty of Cinderella, but with an edge. Imagine a fairy tale with a kidnapping, false identities, role reversals, and a little passion, that still has that childlike magical feel. With films such as The Princess Diaries, The Princess Switch and The Princess Bride, still doing well on Netflix for instance, my story is a nod to these but with added spice. As well as being totally fresh, it also has funny elements when we are introduced to Gerry, the old bald fairy Godfather in a tweed suit and dickie bow. Gerry brings an old fashioned sprinkling with his anicdotes about helping other fairy tale characters and how it often went wrong. This tale is for all the dreamers and hopeless romantics. It would sit well amongst titles such as The Kissing Booth and Ella Enchanted.
