Welcome to the First day of the 
                           Five Glass Slippers blog tour.

But before we get started here is a tantalizing 
           tidbit about the book as a whole:

About the Collection

ONE BELOVED STORY, 
    FIVE EXCITING WRITERS
        A COLLECTION TO CHERISH

What happens when Cinderella is so painfully 
shy that she cannot bear the idea of attending 
the royal ball? Or when the slipper fits . . . 
but on the wrong girl? What happens when 
Cinderella is determined to oust an impostor prince 
from her rightful throne? Or when she is a cendrillon 
miner working from a space station orbiting a cthonian planet? What happens 
when Cinderella, a humble housemaid, is sent with a message for a prisoner 
trapped in a frightening fairy circus?

Here is Cinderella as you have never met her before, wearing glass slippers 
and off on unforgettable adventures!

Available now in paperback and Kindle formats!

And during this tour The Five Glass Slippers collection will be on sale for only 
$.99 in Kindle format for the duration (June 23-28) of the tour!

My Review of Five Glass Slippers

Five Glass Slippers from Rogglewood Press is a delightful mix of five 
"Cinderella" stories. Gleaned from a contest that took place in the 
second half of 2013. And the winning titles are:
WHAT EYES CAN SEE by Elizabeth Brown
BROKEN GLASS by Emma Clifton
THE WINDY SIDE OF CARE by Rachel Heffington
A CINDER’S TALE by Stephanie Ricker
THE MOON MASTER’S BALL by Clara Diane Thompson

With stories as varied as their titles the Cinderella thread can be found 
throughout each story whether the story takes place in a traditional 
setting or in a futuristic one. With unique twists each story will keep 
you enraptured as these five authors weave their spells with the magic 
of words.

A refused prince. A glass slipper mix-up. A prince who's throne is about 
to be stolen. A mining colony. And a circus. There's a story sure to appeal 
to everyone. Curl-up with a nice cup of tea and be prepared to be swept 
away as 5 "Cinderella's" meet their prince!

I was provided a digital review copy of this book by the publisher in 
exchange for my honest review.

Check-out my review/interview with today's Cinderella Elisabeth Brown here


About What Eyes Can See by Elisabeth Brown: 

Painfully shy Arella begs her stepmother 
to let her stay home from the prince’s ball. 
But kindly Duchess Germaine is determined 
that her beautiful stepdaughter should be 
presented at court along with her own two 
daughters. So, dressed in a gorgeous gown 
and a pair of heirloom slippers, Arella catches 
the eye of the crown prince . . . and finds her 
life suddenly far more complicated than she 
ever desired.

About Broken Glass by Emma Clifton:

The slipper fits . . . but on the wrong girl! 
Rosalind never once danced with Prince Marius 
at the ball, for she is in love with his brother 
Henry. If only Rosalind and Marius would stop 
bickering long enough to invent a scheme, perhaps 
the three of them can find the real mystery lady. But
they must work quickly, for dark deeds are afoot, and 
the kingdom is poised on the brink of disaster.

About The Windy Side of Care by Rachel Heffington: 

Alisandra is determined to have her rights. 
She knows that she is the king’s secretly 
dispossessed daughter, the true heir to the 
throne. Prince Auguste is an impostor, and 
if she plays her cards right, Alis will prove 
it to the world! That is, if charming Auguste 
doesn’t succeed in winning her heart before 
she gets her chance . . .

About A Cinder’s Tale by Stephanie Ricker:

It’s a dangerous life, yet Elsa wouldn’t trade this 
opportunity to work at Tremaine Station, mining 
cendrillon from the seething surface of planet Aschen. 
Nevertheless, when a famous deep space explorer and 
his handsome son dock their starcraft at the space station, 
Elsa finds herself dreaming of far galaxies beyond Aschen's 
blistering heat. There is no time for dreaming, however, 
when danger threatens the space station, and Elsa and her 
fellow miners are tested to the limits of their courage.

About The Moon Master's Ball by Clara Diane Thompson: 

After her terrifying experience there several 
years ago, the one place young housemaid Tilly
longs to avoid is Bromley’s Circus. But when 
kindly Lord Hollingberry begs her to deliver a 
message to the mysterious Moon Master hidden 
away among the circus dwellers, Tilly can’t 
refuse . . . and finds herself ensnared in a web 
of enchantment cast by the loathsome Mrs. 
Carlisle and her beautiful goddaughter.
