After a fantastic vacation at my cottage I am safely back home with my laptop and internet connection. Woot! I have a few announcements.
Debut Author Challenge
As some of you saw on Saturday, Jen at Lost in the Library and I are Team Canada for the 2012 Debut Author Challenge. I'm so excited! We'll be compiling a comprehensive directory of debuts by Canadian authors and publishers for next year's challenge. If you know of any debuts feel free to leave a comment or send me an email.
Also on Saturday I was featured on Booklover Discovers, a meme spotlighting a YA book blogger each week, hosted by Chloe at YA Booklover Blog. Check out the interview! It was super easy and lots of fun to be featured. If you're interested in being featured in future weeks, check out Chloe's blog for more detail.
My Canada Day Blog Hop Giveaway ended this weekend! The winner of a paperback copy of Leap by Jodi Lundgren is:
Congratulations Tatiana! Thank you to everyone who entered and advertised the giveaway. Can't wait for my next contest.
In the past week I have gained approximately 30 new followers. Welcome everyone! I'll be doing a Q&A in a few weeks to properly welcome and introduce you all to The Zealous Reader.
Happy 4th of July to all my American followers!
