When cheaper and faster is better...

I found out some big news four days ago and I haven't told anyone because I wasn't sure how to say it.

Even now I am mostly just staring at a blinking cursor.

First, I had to believe it myself. And after it sank it, I had to think of some way to say it so my friends and readers would know exactly how I feel.
Thankful.
And lucky.
And maybe, deep down, undeserving.

Maybe that is the problem. I don't really know why all these little miracles are happening to me. I don't want to sound exultant over something is the result of all the right people at all the right moments combining to equal a huge blessing. Because I know that's what it is.

So I will just say it and hope that you know how humbled and grateful I feel.
Due to unanticipated enthusiasm, Penguin has taken the rare step of changing the release date for On Little Wings from August 15th to May 30th.


Also, the price has dropped once again. It is a big enough run (they are printing enough copies) that readers will be able to get a gorgeous hardcover copy for eleven dollars and change.

That means so much to me because I am a penny pincher and I want my book to be as small a financial burden to my readers as possible. I know that dollars and cents matter.

My thanks to the team at Viking who tackled this news with gusto since it meant almost impossible deadlines and long hours of work. They could have said it can't be done, but they jumped on board and sacrificed time and energy to make it happen.

If you pre-ordered a copy please accept my sincere thanks. My friends and readers have done it again.
And again.
And again.

Thank you.

  1. Awesome, and you DESERVE this. This is a blessing the Lord WANTS you to have. He has things for you to do. He has a path and He wants you to take it. To be an example and shining light of family and wholesome values. I'm so proud to say, "Regina Sirois is my sister-in-law. You should read her book."

    1. Thank you, Donna. Of course, I am partial to the cover with my daughter on it :) but Viking made a great point. With 90% of the book taking place in Maine they thought my cover should be set there. Thank you so much for cheering me in my journey. It means so much!
