Read Write Rejoice

Normally, I don't get all horn-tooty about my book, Letters From Rapunzel, here at Read Write Believe. I figure you're big kids and can do the clicky thing if you want to find out more about it. But I found this yesterday, and I...well...REJOICED is not too strong a word:

"Being gifted is awesome in some very real ways, but it also majorly sucks in some very real ways. Holmes really, truly got it. She absolutely nailed it." --- Read more of this review by Katie, who admits to once being a girl much like Rapunzel.

Thank you so much, Katie of PixiePalace. I'd be honored to meet you one day.*

And while I've got the horn out, I'm also pleased to announce that Tina Wexler of International Creative Management is my new agent. Huzzah!

*Full disclosure: I saw Letters From Rapunzel on PixiePalace's book wishlist several months ago. So I mailed her a copy, because she sounded like a cool person. But we've never met, and I didn't ask her to review it.

UPDATE: Letters From Rapunzel is on the Hoagies Gifted Education Page, under the Hot Topics Reading List: On Being Gifted. Lots of great reading suggestions there, for both older and younger readers.


  1. Double huzzah! Or as my eldest says, huzza-huzza!

  2. Congrats on your catch! Tina is my agent, too!


  3. Tooty toot toot, Sara!
    Double congratulations :)!!
    What a glowing review that finally nailed how you totally nailed Cadence and what it's truly like to be gifted. Well deserved. And thunderous applause and big hugs for signing up with Tina. I see great things for your future (**looking in crystal ball**).

  4. Great news all-around. CONGRATS!

    I'm so behind on blog-reading, and I MISS THIS BLOG. I hope I can get caught up some tonight. Let me just quickly say, though, that I perused that Poetry Friday post I missed, and I LOVE THAT POEM that person wrote on that gate entryway thingy!

  5. Thank you for linking to my review! And thank you for sending me your amazing book! I absolutely adored it (obviously)! I'm sorry it took me so long to blog about it (I read it right away), but I kept starting to write about it and getting stuck. I find it hard to write about books I really love, especially ones that touch me on a personal level. I really wanted to review it, though, because it was so good and deserved to be praised!

    I will be at the kidlitosphere conference in Chicago, so I'll hopefully get to meet you there! I'm really looking forward to it!

  6. Good things happen to good people! Congrats!
