How do you turn 1 book purchase into $1200?
Just send me your receipt!
All you have to do is send me your proof of purchase for my new book, “Lightfinder”.
“Bestseller!” – Chapters/Indigo
“#1 Hot New Release!” – Amazon
From now until Deadline: Dec 25, 2014
“With an artist’s eye and a storyteller’s soaring imagination, Aaron Paquette has written a page-turner. I found myself rooting hard for Aisling, Eric and their beloved Kokum. This book is a hugely engaging cautionary tale: the stakes are high if we keep giving in to our appetites. But there is great light in Lightfinder. Congratulations, Aaron, on this strong debut.” -Shelagh Rogers O.C., Host, co-creator “”The Next Chapter”” CBC Radio One
“Lightfinder” will have about 7 or 8 illustrations.
You’ll get 3 downloadable files of that work which you can print out in high quality as an art piece or poster.
The value of a 24”x 36” print is around $200 so the prints alone are $600.
You will always have those files, something I would lease out for quite a bit of money. But it’s yours.
For free. Forever.
At minimum, that’s an additional $600.
$1200 value for the price of one book!
Lightfinder is a Young Adult fantasy novel about Aisling, a young Cree woman who sets out into the wilderness with her Kokum (grandmother), Aunty and two young men she barely knows. They have to find and rescue her runaway younger brother, Eric. Along the way she learns that maybe the legends of her people are actually real and that she has a growing power of her own.The story follows the paths of Aisling and Eric, siblings unwittingly thrust into a millennia old struggle for the future of life on earth. It deals with growing up, love and loss, and the choices life puts in our path. Love and confusion are in store, as are loss and pain. Things are not always what they seem and danger surrounds them at every turn. Will Raven’s mysterious purposes prevail? With darkness closing in how will they find the light to guide them? Will Aisling find Eric in time?
If that wasn’t enough, I am also throwing in…
A FREE DRAW FOR A $500 ORIGINAL PAINTING
You are automatically entered for a draw for an original Paquette artwork.
If your name gets drawn, then we wrap it up and send it to you. That easy.
I’ll put the draw online so everyone can see. At Christmas Time!
And really, no purchase required for the draw. Just send me a line if you want entered, but it would be pretty awesome if you bought the book, too.
Why am I doing all this??
Well, for most writers, books don’t generate a lot of income, so it’s not for the money.
I have a passion. I wrote the book to encourage more kids to read.
It’s fast paced and it’s a book that most people can simply pick up and finish.
I want to help give that feeling of accomplishment for all youth, but specifically for youth in Indigenous communities. That’s why the book’s main characters are Indigenous and why it’s written by an Indigenous author (me!)
I want to show the young people from these communities it can be done, and show them their own reflection in entertaining literature. But really, it’s accessible to everyone and the novel speaks to universal themes we can all relate to.
“As a fan of Aaron Paquette’s dazzling artwork, I am in awe of the vision and craft behind The Lightfinder Saga. If you loved Stephen King’s The Stand and the worlds that Neil Gaiman can create, you will love these characters who are fighting for humanity’s survival. Bravo!” -Richard Van Camp, author of The Lesser Blessed, Angel Wing Splash Pattern and Godless but Loyal to Heaven.
It would be AMAZING if schools and communities would make sure very kid who wanted one got a copy of their own.
Can you imagine if a corporation partnered with these communities? That would be putting money to a good purpose.
And I’d even be wiling to negotiate 50% off on big orders like that.
It’s a massive dream, and with your order of 1 book, a few books, even 10 or twenty books for your book club or classroom, you help make it happen.
Encourage others to pick up a copy, encourage your LOCAL LIBRARY!
And just to be crazy, let’s add ONE MORE BONUS here.
First let’s recap:
Buy 1 (one) book and send me the receipt and you will get: 3 prints valued at $400 each for a total of $1200. That’s crazy math.
You also get entered into a draw for a free painting.
And now the extra bonus:
Anyone who can prove a completed order of 150 books or more, will get their own $300 value original painting for free along with all the above bonuses.
printoffer @ lightfindernovel.com
And if you can show me a completed order of 500 books or more, I will personally come speak at your school (or group of schools!) and waive my 1 day speaking fee. You just have to make sure I can get there. 🙂 But that’s worth an additional $2000 plus all the other bonuses, so a value of $3500!
Basically, it’s how you get books for almost free.
That’s all I’ve got.
Deadline: Dec 25, 2014
