Welcome to the Endless Blog Tour!
Jaclyn Weist was kind of enough to take some time to answer questions about her newest book, Endless. It is an enchanting Cinderella story. Let’s hear her inside scoop on it.
Which would you prefer for inspiration for your stories: dreams, nightmares, or reality?
I like getting inspiration from dreams. I would prefer not to use my nightmares because they don’t make a lot of sense.
Cinderella has been told and retold in many different elements. What is your favorite part of the tale?
My favorite part is when the prince travels the whole kingdom to find the princess he fell in love with. I’m a total romantic, and this is just awesome.
Of the elements, which do you think you would be strongest in and what would you do with it?
I’d go with earth or water to build all kinds of awesomeness.
Of the elements, which do you think you would be weakest in and what would it would do with you?
Fire is the most fascinating but I’m scared of it. I’d use wind to help me fly, but I’m also afraid of heights.
Fairy tales often focus on the princess when being retold. But for every princess there is a prince as well. Which was your husband most like when you met?
I would say Aladdin, even if he’s not a prince when you first meet him. He was very down to earth and fun to talk to.
If you were going to use magic to display your talents, how would you use it?
I would make magic in the sky. :)s
There are several moments when you have Sydney dreaming about what work she might do when she grows up. If you lived in Sydney’s world, what occupation would you want?
I’d want to teach others magic. Or do what her dad does because that’s pretty awesome too…
If you could have gone to any camp you wanted as a child, what would it have been like?
I love the camp in this book. I’d love to learn archery, pottery, and for sure MAGIC.
All the ingredients you can imagine are available for your use. What would you want to cook?
I’m more of a baker than a cook so I’d make all kinds of goodies and share with my neighbors. Christmas candies (fudge, toffee, divinity) are my favorites.
In fairy tales villains often don’t have a happy ending. Which villain would you want to see break that trend?
I think this is why I love Despicable Me and Megamind so much. The bad guys become the good guys. AND why I love the movie Maleficent so much. I’ll have to think about that and get back to you…

Sydney lives her nightmares every night. While other teenagers are dreaming of boys or traveling to exotic places, she must run a staircase with no beginning or no end, or a terrible debt will never be paid.
Just before her seventeenth birthday, the dreams change. She is no longer alone.
But her nightmares don’t end when she wakes up. Her stepmother and stepsisters threaten to ruin everything she holds dear. She must protect the secret that both she and her father have magic or they will use it to their advantage.
As Sydney learns to control her magic, what seemed impossible before—escaping her stepmother and those ever-present stairs—is now at her fingertips. When she learns the ultimate plan of her evil captor, Sydney must stop her at all costs, or she will forever be trapped inside her nightmares.
