Join us for Canadian authors.

 
Happy summer, Word Press family and visitors!
In the prairies we love heat.  Dreaming of these days gets us through freezes later!  It is my distinct pleasure to accept a Canadian author challenge!  Join anytime from absolutely anywhere in the world, July 131.  Review 3 authors and you’re entered in a draw for a Book Depository gift shipment.  If you don’t have a blog, use the book’s product page on Amazon.ca to do your review.

 
Off the top of my head, here’s an eclectic variety for you.  Exceeding the expected ‘Carole Shields’ or ‘Alice Munro’, my list is like no other on the internet!  Fantasy, paranormal, local history, ethnicity, young adult;  gems unknown internationally.

I was going to go all out on authors from my province.  I have novel research to do so I am turning to the east, Nova Scotia.  I will concentrate 3 authors to a province after all:  Dr. Helen Creighton, Darryll Walsh, and Steve Vernon.

Enjoy my ‘famous fact’ article below about Manitoba, my home province and turf.
I’ll talk books with anyone.  Do comment whether you’re trying this event or not.
Yours Sincerely, Carolyn.  :)

    I’m so glad to have you participating in the challenge, and thanks for advertising it! I’ve already had several people say they’re discovering new Canadian authors, and that makes me so happy. Re: your question, if you win, you can pick whatever book you want $10 CDN or under. :-) Happy reading!
