Hello my lovelies! And welcome to the Five Glass Slippers tour. I am quite pleased to be a part of the fun stuff happening this week! So what does that mean for you??
That means that you get loads of posts to read (well.....only three from me.....but there's lots more elsewhere! Check out the blog tour page over here to find out more!) and just generally find out all about the lovely ladies who wrote this series of short stories. Fun, right?!
So. Let's get this show on the road, shall we? :)
Today the question goes to Emma Clifton:
Fairy tales always end with dreams coming true and happily ever after. Do you enjoy stories that end this way or do you prefer more realistic endings?
I don't like depressing stories or unhappy endings. So give me the happily ever after, please! And if you think about it, the end of history will be a happily ever after--Jesus will return triumphant, all things will be made new, there will be no sin, death, or suffering. So I think happily-ever-after's are pretty realistic.
Very good point, Emma! I like that. :)

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.
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 slippers 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!

Don't forget to stop in around these parts later this week, there's much more fun to come. Plus a giveaway! (Who doesn't love a giveaway?!)
I'm a HEA (Happily Ever After) gal myself. Great idea for a collection of stories, BTW! Will make for a fun summer read.ReplyDelete
Me too, Shonna! And it is a fun summer read. I really enjoyed them myself! Thanks for stopping by. :)Delete
Love your response, Emma. :) Yay for happily ever afters! Although I admit that, on occasion, I appreciate a "realistic" ending if it's at least hopeful or if it's poignantly cautioning, if that makes sense. ("The Hunger Games" series comes to mind.)ReplyDelete
Great question, Kara, and thank you for featuring Emma today!
Thank you, Amber! This was fun. I'm a big fan of happily ever after's as well! I figure if I'm going to read for pleasure and escape, I deserve to end with happiness! :DDelete
