Five Glass Slipper Blog Tour: Rachel Heffington

    Here I am again as part of the Five Glass Slippers blog tour!! The Cinderella of the day today is author Rachel Heffington, with her story The Windy Side of Care.
Rachel Heffington is a Christian, a novelist, and a people-lover. Outside of the realm of words, Rachel enjoys the Arts, traveling, mucking about in the kitchen, listening for accents, and making people laugh. She dwells in rural Virginia with her boisterous family and her black cat, Cricket.
In February 2014, Rachel released her debut novel, Fly Away Home, and is excited to collaborate on Five Glass Slippers with her fellow authoresses. She hopes to release her second full-length novel and first mystery (Anon, Sir, Anon) in autumn 2014. For more on Rachel, her current projects, and writing in general, visit her on her blog: www.inkpenauthoress.blogspot.com.

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 imposter, 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 . . .



And we come to the interview...
Me: How did you come up with the title, ‘The Windy Side of Care’?
Rachel: When in doubt, quote Shakespeare. If you look under the decorative title of the first chapter of TWSOC, you will see a quotation from Much Ado About Nothing. That quote was the spring-board for my entire retelling. :)
Me: Shakespeare, sounds very neat! :)
The Windy Side of Care sounds like a lovely story! I'm hoping to start reading it and all the other Cinderella retellings from Five Glass Slippers soon!! :)

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 imposter 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!
