Five Glass Slippers Blog Tour: Featuring Emma Clifton!



Dear imps, today I have the great pleasure of taking part in the Five Glass Slippers blog tour, hosted by Amber Stokes from Seasons of Humility. She has done a wonderful job with this tour, including a "Cinderella for the Day" feature of each of these authors over on her blog page--one special feature for each day of the week. You definitely don't want to miss it, or any of these fun posts!

Today's Cinderella is Emma Clifton, author of the second story in this wonderful collection, Broken Glass. I got to ask Emma one question about her story, which was:

"If you could spend the day with one of the characters from your story, who would you pick, why, and what would you do? (Or, you can flip that, and answer who you would NOT pick, why, and what you would do if forced? Either or both is fun!"

Here is Emma's answer: I think I'd choose Marius, because he's rather funny (and a very handsome crown prince, too), though I'm having a hard time choosing between him and Henry and Darcy.  We'd play badminton, because that is a very princely thing to do.  And since neither Marius nor I are very athletic, we'd end up laughing at each other's lack of skill.  I can take teasing pretty well, so I don't think he'd annoy me as much as he annoys Rosalind. 

I would not want to spend the day with Lady Sevray; she's nasty, stuck-up, and the evil stepmother.  Maybe I'd suggest going shopping with her and then hide in one of the shops until the day was over.

 
 Thank you, Emma! I think Marius is a great choice. Particularly since he's a got a softer side if you just know how to find it . . .

I hope all of you readers will grab Emma's wonderful story so you can learn about Marius and the vile Lady Sevray for yourselves! You can grab the Kindle version for just 0.99 this week, so why not? Here's a little more about Broken Glass if you're still not convinced:
  

BROKEN GLASS

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 AUTHOR

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. 


 Be sure to visit all the other stops on this awesome tour! And don't miss the wonderful giveaway as well (US and Canada only).

LOL! I love your response, Emma! Badminton with the princes - or hiding out in the stores. Sounds like a plan. ;)

I've had a blast hosting this tour, Anne Elisabeth! Thank you for entrusting it to my care. :) And thanks for the fun question for Emma!

I like your plan.
Redwall is so good! I find very few people who read it!

So exciting! : D Congratulations, Emma! Out of curiosity, how many drafts did you have before you submitted Broken Glass?

Emily Chapman said...

Let's just say I would so completely utterly totally choose Marius too. ^.^ I love your story. (But I've told you that a hundred times by now, so I'll finally shut up. ;))

And by the way, Anne Elisabeth, I keep trying to enter the Rafflecopter, but it won't enter me. It'll say "entered" but it doesn't add my entries to the total entries and it doesn't remember I entered when I pull up the Rafflecopter again. :/ What should I do?

Anne Elisabeth Stengl said...

Hmmm, I'm sorry Emily, but I don't actually know. Sometimes rafflecopter glitches like that, but I'm not an expert and I don't know how to fix it. :( I'd say just keep trying!

Emily Chapman said...

Aaaaand it's working now. :) Thanks anyway!

Georgina said...

Fun interview! Your story sounds fascinating, great concept! I'm really looking forward to reading it. :)

I'd like to spend the day with him to. We would insult each other until we would be out of breath.
