Two fun blog tour posts in a row! Today I get to introduce you to Rachel Heffington, another of the five authors of the Five Glass Slippers stories. As with Emma, I got to ask Rachel one interview question as part of the tour.If you were in charge of planning the banquet for a ball, what would be on your menu?
Question: If you were in charge of planning the banquet for a ball, what would be on your menu?
Rachel: WHAT a fun question. Cheesecake, doubtless. And lemonade and sparkling cider. A lovely French-inspired table of olives, crusty bread and unusual cheese and sweet strawberries would stand to one side beside a dark chocolate and espresso bar. As for the actual meal, it would probably be something I made up in the kitchen but it would include fresh herbs, grilled fish, new potatoes, sourdough bread and something fruit. Also, lemon-asparagus and perhaps some wilted spinach salad with little pieces of crispy bacon and tiny slices of radish.
Ooh, sounds delicious, especially the cheesecake and cheese! (What can I say? I’m a Wisconsin girl.) Make sure you check out Rachel’s other stops on the tour! Here is a bit more about her.

About “The Windy Side of Care” by Rachel Heffington
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 . . .
The Five Glass Slippers collection will be on sale for only $.99 in Kindle format for the duration of the blog tour (June 23-28)! You can learn more about the entire collection on yesterday’s post featuring Emma Clifton. At such a great price, I highly recommend you grab it. ;)
And don’t forget the awesome giveaway! Here’s your chance to be Cinderella of the ball!
