The first reviews are in

Thanks to some searches in google, I came across the very first reviews of my book. Complete strangers got a copy, read it and then blogged about it.
I know that is kind of standard order for things, but it feels incredibly surreal when it's my book. 

And it's funny how I can already tell how much I would really like these women...  : )

One came from a woman in Oregon, and another from a woman in Utah.  Please pop over to their blogs to find out what folks are saying about "On Little Wings." 

"On Little Wings--So beautifully written.  I had to slow down to enjoy the language that Regina Sirois uses.  She is a wordsmith.  I truly enjoyed the journey, and I will not give away ANYTHING in the plot, but I will say that it was worthwhile and touching and real and I have thought of nothing else for days."

"I’m still in love with the Kindle Touch I received for Christmas, and I’ve been loading it with tons of free books from Amazon. On a whim I picked up On Little Wings by Regina Sirois.
On Little Wings is the debut novel of Regina Sirois. It’s self published, and I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical when I loaded it onto my kindle. It had two great reviews on Amazon, though, so I thought I’d give it a chance. I am SO glad I did! I devoured this book in three days. If I had been a little less busy, I’m sure I would have read it in a day, and it’s not a short novel! It was THAT good!
Sirois is a master of the English language. Each character in the book came alive, and I could almost imagine myself on the streets of Smithport, Maine, living the adventure alongside Jennifer.
On Little Wings took me from laughter to tears to deep reflection and back several times. The book description says it’s written for a young adult audience, but I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, and sadly, I don’t think I’m considered a young adult anymore.
I’m not sure if the author is a Christian, but as a Christian reader, there was nothing objectionable in this book. In fact there were a few references to God and Bible stories, and they were positive references. It was just a good, clean novel.
The only bad part about On Little Wings? It had to end. Maybe I’d better read some non-fiction, because it’s going to be tough to follow On Little Wings with another novel."
And feel free to check out my Amazon reviews here (some are people I know, but some are not).


  1. Woot! Such awesomeness, Regina! Now it's my turn to say 'I knew you when . . . ' =)
