Sir Gerek stared down at the book and frowned. "Do you know how to read any words at all?"
"No," she admitted. "I don't know any words."

  3. Rapunzel, huh? Is it an adult version of the book? I love fairy tale retellings.

  4. I am totally in love with the cover, I got so caught up in looking at it I almost forgot to read the teaser. I am totally watching for this one. Happy Friday!

  8. That's quite a beginning! Usually, fairy tales end with marriage and "they lived happily ever after." Beautiful cover.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
