Upon the launch of my book, "A Long Paddle Home", I reached out to Canoe FM in Haliburton Ontario to determine if they would entertain doing and interview with me to promote the Book.
I was elated when I received a call from Mike Jaycock who is a host at the station. He suggested I send him a copy of the book for his approval.
This video contains a short clip of the interview. I have coupled the interview with videos of the area which is the book's stage.
This book is more than a work of fiction. My editor had no idea how to "peg" it. Fiction, love story, mystical, spiritual and a host of other genres crossed her mind. We settled on fiction simply because the names and some of the events have been altered.
I have divulged some deep secrets about our natural world within the text, hence my reluctance to promote the book too much. These secrets will be seen as a mere flight of fancy or ridiculous. I counter those arguments by asking, "Why are you afraid of the woods?"
This book is a deep dive into the heart of the wilderness, it will take you on a journey where you will meet something which has always been, yet never seen.
My wish is to open peoples eyes to the possibility that there are things which simply can't be explained by logic and social engineering.
More snips of the interview will follow.
If you have read this book, and have questions or comments, please feel free to ask.
To Mike Jaycock and all the people at Canoe FM, Thank you.
