EDMONTON – So let’s do something awesome.
First, for the next 10 days I’ll be talking A LOT about my debut novel, ‘Lightfinder’.
It’s because I think it can help increase literacy and make a little bit of history.
So please forgive me in advance for the onslaught of posts for the next little while.
And please SHARE them. Let’s get the word out.
I’d love to see this book open on the Globe and Mail’s bestseller list. It would be the first time in history a YA fantasy novel written by an Indigenous author, starring Indigenous characters, gets such sudden, nationwide attention.
I feel that both Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth will read this book, even those who never really took an interest in reading before. That’s pretty magic.
Second, please tell your schools, libraries and communities that they should have this book. I will give them a big discount and even arrange to visit for readings, workshops, what have you. Every kid should get a book.
Third, remember that when you buy a book, you get $1200 worth of art in return and a chance to win a $500 painting by me.
That is just an insanely great deal. There’s no other way to look at it. Sometimes I wonder if I just changed everything by offering it.
You should make this your book club selection, make it your gifts this year, buy a whole box to use as a fancy stool. Lol
Anyway, thank you for your patience. Thank you for sharing the word. And thank you for continuing to inspire me every day to do better and better.
