You think you are just a person struggling through the world, making it day by day. You think that one day you’d like to follow your dreams – to create! To make something incredible.

You think you don’t have enough knowledge yet, or training or time.

You think all these things and so your mind listens and makes it so.

Isn’t time to believe all things are possible?

Isn’t it time to let go of that great evil, perfectionism, and let your work be imperfect without fear of judgement?

Isn’t it time to cast worry aside and grab hold of your purpose, your reason, your destiny?

I will tell you what you already know:

This is the time.

This is your day.

This is the moment you feel a flame in your heart growing, spreading, filling you with Life!

Nurture it!

Protect it!

Help it grow.

It’s the true expression of your very own soul longing to breathe free.

Longing to fly.

Are you ready? It may not feel like it, but you are.

Will you fall? Absolutely!

And will you rise?

Absolutely.

Do what you have to do to make it happen right now. Change everything. Now.

You are fierce and beautiful and strong.

Show it to the world.

Hiy hiy

From acclaimed artist Aaron Paquette comes a new novel that will enchant you, grab you and pull you into a world you thought you knew but have never truly seen…

Aisling is 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 the legends of her people might be 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?

“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!”
