Five Glass Slippers Blog Tour: Clara Diane Thompson + Giveaway

Today is the last day to the exciting Five Glass Slippers Blog Tour!

Check out the Tour Schedule to visit all of the other awesome blogs that made this tour tons of fun!

Today's "Cinderella" is Clara Diane Thompson.  Welcome to Vonnie's Reading Corner, Clara Diane!

Cirque du Soleil has contracted you to join their show. What act would you do?

Ooh, what a fun question! There are many marvelous acts in Cirque du Soleil, but the one I would most enjoy performing would be the Aerial Silks. Of course, I would probably look ridiculous attempting to hang on to them and fly around the stage, but I would certainly have a wonderful time attempting to perform the act! Haha!  

I really do love Cirque du Soleil, so I had fun with this question, Vonnie! Thanks so much for including me on your blog.

Me: Ooh! Aerial Silks! That would be so pretty!

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.

About Clara Diane Thompson

Clara Diane Thompson lives in the swamps of Louisiana with her loving family, dashing dog, and a very confused frog that resides in the birdhouse outside her window. Aside from writing she enjoys playing guitar, singing, Broadway plays (particularly The Phantom of the Opera), ballet, tea with friends, and long BBC movies. An enchanted circus may or may not appear occasionally in her back yard.

You can find out more about Clara and her writing on her blog: To Find a Castle.



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!
