2013 Canada Day Blog Hop

The Canada Day Blog Hop is hosted by three lovely Canadians: Chrystal from Snowdrop Dreams of Books, Carmel from Rabid Reads, and Aislynn from Stitch Read Cook.

If you've been following Ramblings of a Daydreamer for any length of time, you'll likely know that I'm a very proud Canadian. I love my country and take great pride in being Canadian. Because of that, I always set my books in Canada. All three of my novels are set in Ontario, Canada; the towns are fictional but are surrounded by well-known cities (little-known fact: The Game Changer was actually set in my city, just with a little twist on the name). Blue Sky Days is set in Riverside, a small town three hours north of Toronto; The Game Changer is set in Bellevue, a city two hours east of Toronto; and Waiting for the Storm is set on Angel Island, which is part of the Thousand Islands off Kingston. Also, in each book, the characters visit at least one real Ontario city (Toronto, Ottawa, Kingston, and Belleville, just to give you an idea).

For this year's Canada Day Blog Hop, I'm giving away the winner's choice of an e-copy of one of my novels.

Blue Sky Days (contemporary young adult/new adult)
The Game Changer (contemporary women's fiction/chick lit)
Waiting for the Storm (contemporary young adult) 

A little bit of shameless self-promotion here: I'm having a Fan Appreciation Event where Blue Sky Days is currently just 99 cents (available everywhere ebooks are sold), and I'm offering a $25 Amazon gift card or $25 PayPal cash for people who help me spread the word about Waiting for the Storm by writing a review. If you win and decide to choose Waiting for the Storm, you'd have time to read and review it before the promotion is over. Just a couple things to think about! ;-)

Giveaway Details:
*One (1) person will win their choice of one (1) of my novels
*Open internationally
*The giveaway runs from midnight June 27th - 11:59pm EST July 1st. I will contact the winner after the giveaway closes, and they'll have 48 hours to respond, at which point if I haven't heard back from them, I'll choose another winner.
*The books are available in all e-formats, so you can choose the format for your reader, tablet, app, computer, etc.

Be sure to check out the other stops on the hop. There are some fantastic giveaways that you won't want to miss!

Have you signed up for the 2013 Canadian Reading Challenge yet? We're offering 2 prizes this year!


  1. Thanks so much for participating! :) Happy (almost) Canada Day! :)


  2. What a great contest! Love that you set your books in Canada; I always have a soft spot for those. Vikki VanSickle, Kit Pearson, Kenneth Oppel, Susin Nielsen are among Canadian authors I ADORE. :)

  3. Happy Canada Day!!

    I love ANNE OF GREEN GABLES so, Lucy Maud Montgomery.

  4. I'm going to head on over to the hop and sign up, BUT, I am insanely busy with Grad School prep so I will likely struggle with completing just one book. I'll find a short one! Glad you decided to run this again, though.

    Brandy's Bustlings

  5. Happy Canada Day! My favourite Canadian authors are Pierre Berton and Stephen Leacock.


Thanks for visiting Ramblings of a Daydreamer! I love hearing what you have to say, and I appreciate every single comment. I hope to see you here again soon! ♥
