#Lightfinder interview on CTV in #yeg town


#Lightfinder interview on CTV in #yeg town

So I’m not a morning person. I mean, I’ll do it. If I have to.

And I have to far more often than I like.

But this morning it was a pleasure to get up and hop over to CTV studios in Edmonton for a quick interview with the effervescent Kimberly Wynn.

We talked about my bestselling novel Lightfinder (now in it’s 2nd printing) and as a result, it is now apparently sold out in the city. You should bug…

Women are the Warriors we Need


Women are the Warriors we Need

Women are the warriors our times call for.

Some people make the mistake of thinking women are only gatherers … gardeners … that they can only dig and pick and cultivate and hide.

I tell you that women are the strongest, smartest and most dangerous hunters the world has ever seen.

Individually, they may be physically overpowered, but in planning, in vision, in purpose and explosive action, they…

How to Get the Most DESIRABLE Women in the World (tips for young men)

Ten crazy secrets you WON’T believe (especially number 7!)

1.Understand that she is not here to please you. Any woman worth pursuing is ALREADY following her own dreams, her own path, and if you’re worthy, you can walk beside her. But you better have your own goals that you are following or you’ll get dropped like dead weight. No one wants to drag you along. A good woman wants you to walk boldly…

Lightfinder Review - John Richardson


Lightfinder Review – John Richardson

John Richardson is an artist I admire. He has the heartbeat and pulse of the arts scene in Edmonton and his work is always thoughtful, clever, deeply intelligent and of course, beautiful. He has made art not only his profession, but his life. He is an incredible father.

He also knows how to write, and to my utter astonishment and gratitude, he has chosen to spend some of that on my little book,…

"Lightfinder" by Aaron Paquette: Comparisons Will Inevitably Be Made


John Richardson is an artist I admire. He has the heartbeat and pulse of the arts scene in Edmonton and his work is always thoughtful, clever, deeply intelligent and of course, beautiful. He has made art not only his profession, but his life. He is an incredible father.

He also knows how to write, and to my utter astonishment and gratitude, he has chosen to spend some of that on my little book, Lightfinder.

And so, an excerpt and a link:

"Lightfinder by artist Aaron Paquette is a stunning debut novel, an enthralling first instalment of what promises to be an exciting series of novels for young adults (and all sorts of other readers). Comparisons will inevitably be made (I’ll do it myself in a moment), but unlike authors of some of the popular novel series for young adults of the recent and not-so-recent past, Paquette has firmly rooted the adventure in our real world: no Ministry of Magic, no post-Apocalyptic Panem, and although there are magical journeys, they are not to some aborted Medievalist fantasy called Narnia or anything else. Lightfinder is an adventure in the landscape and geography – and political economy – of Canada – specifically Alberta – today."

Explosions!

A man flew a drone right through a live fireworks display. It’s incredibly beautiful. I just think it’s amazing his camera didn’t get hit!
