As the Canada Wench -- you can picture me with a few strategically placed maple leaves if you want, but I wouldn't recommend it! -- I want to wish everyone a very happy national celebration of choice, especially in North America where this long weekend serves both.
As Mary Jo said, July 1st is Canada Day, so it would be great to hear from any and all Canadians reading here. Leave a comment! As an incentive, I'll give away a signed copy of an Advance Reading Copy of my only (thus far) Canadian set book, THE ROGUE'S RETURN. Yes, I know it's out, but an ARC is a very limited edition, so it's special.
The rules? I'll randomly pick from those Canadian residents who leave a Happy Canada Day comment between the start of July Ist as it's recorded on the blog message and three pm, July 1st, same system. We want to be sending those good wishes while Canada Day is still rolling along, and this is the fairest system I could come up with. Canada has an extra hour and a half out there in the east, so the Maritimers get some extra time to enter.
