Five Glass Slippers Blog Tour: Emma Clifton

     Hi everyone! I am excited to be part of the Five Glass Slippers blog tour this week! :) Today I am doing a mini interview of one of the five authors of this Cinderella collection, Emma Clifton, and we'll take a look at her story, Broken Glass.
     So without further ado, here's a little about Emma and her writing! :)

Emma Clifton has been thinking up stories since before she knew how to type them out.  Reading books such as the Chronicles of Narnia, The Door Within Trilogy, and Redwall inspired her to take her writing more seriously.  Though her rigorous homeschool education keeps her busy, she also enjoys sewing, reading, and spending time with her family in beautiful Northern Virginia. 

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.
And now for my mini interview, :)
Me: When do you write best/are inspired most?
Emma: I write best when I have an outline.  :P Also, when I have inspiration for a scene, hopefully the next one chronologically.  What inspires me? Good books, epic movies (How To Train Your Dragon 2!!) and great music.  Also, reading about querying, editing, and other writing processes usually motivates me to write.  Writing blogs are very inspirational too. 

Me: Lovely answer, :) I am also inspired by great movies like How to Train Your Dragon! Though I actually haven't watched the second one yet!




So aren't you excited to read Emma's book now? :) It sounds like a fascinating rendition of the Cinderella fairytale! Don't miss Broken Glass or any of the other stories from the Five Glass Slippers novella collection! 

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!
