I've written and edited and rewritten my heart out for the past two years.
I've given up, tried again, started over and kicked it all to the curb.
I've been scrutinized and critiqued by teachers, published authors, editors, and test readers.
I've sent my manuscript to languish in the slush piles of twenty some odd agents and publishers.
I've amassed a great collection of rejection letters, and been endorsed by professional editors.
And now I am here- striking out on my own and publishing this puppy myself.
For all that being said, if you like long shots and underdogs, if you like what you read on this blog and want to take a chance on an entire novel, I have just the story for you. Introducing:
On Little Wings, a young adult novel by Regina Sirois
In Paperback and ebook
In Paperback and ebook
This is a story about the countless ways that people get love wrong. And why, despite every disappointment, we keep fighting to get it right.If you believe all people keep a secret story locked away in their hearts and the questions we ask don't really change with the centuries, you will cheer on the journey of sixteen-year-old Jennifer as she hunts down the most elusive prey- the truth. Jennifer never dreams that the photo she finds stuck between the pages of a neglected book will tear open a gaping wound to her mother’s secret past. Abandoning her comfortable life with her parents and best friend in the wheat fields of Nebraska, Jennifer’s quest leads her to the untamed coast of Maine where she struggles to understand why her mother lied to her for sixteen years. Across the grey, rocky cove she meets Nathan Moore, the young, reluctant genius surrounded by women who need him to be brother, father, friend, provider, protector and now, first love. The stories, varied, hilarious, and heartbreaking, unfold to paint a striking mural of the shattered past. As Jennifer seeks to piece together her mother's story, she inadvertently writes one for herself.
