Excerpt (from the Foreward by Stacy Juba)

If you’ve downloaded this book, then you’re probably wondering: who are these mysterious Glass Slipper Sisters? Are they actually sisters? Do they go around their daily lives wearing glass slippers?

Um, not quite. We are a group of fifteen women who have authored Cinderella-themed romance novels. We consider ourselves sisters in the symbolic sense as we all wrote books inspired by the Cinderella fairy tale.

How did we come together? I founded the group, however, I’m certain that my fairy godmother waved her magical wand behind the scenes to send me the perfect “sisters.” Before the launch of the first book in my Storybook Valley series, I put out a call on writing forums, seeking authors with Cinderella and rags to riches romance novels. Once we had assembled the group, I never expected it to take on a life of its own.

I threw out some preliminary ideas and the brainstorming snowballed as members conjured up their own amazing suggestions. We must have sent hundreds of emails in those early days as we bonded over our mutual love of Cinderella. Soon we had volunteers creating a book trailer, designing graphics, setting up social media pages, collecting individual tweets, monitoring our budget, booking ads, shopping for princess prizes to give away in a grand New Year’s Eve Stroke of Midnight Royal Ball, and taking on editing and production roles for this e-book.

I would like to thank all the group members for their hard work: Caroline Clemmons, Jennifer Conner, Amber Daulton, Angela Ford, Rebekah R. Ganiere, Ines Johnson, Sharon Kleve, Melissa McClone, Joan Reeves, Lisa Scott, PJ Sharon, Lynette Sofras, Rochelle Weber and Kae Elle Wheeler. A special thank you goes out to Rebekah R. Ganiere, who designed our beautiful Cinderella Treasure Trove cover, to Kae Elle Wheeler for the lovely sketches, and to Lynette Sofras who compiled this book.
