Giveaway: Canada Day Blog Hop

Happy Canada Day!

Thanks to Knit, Purl, Stitch and Snow Drop Dreams for creating this blog hop. At a minimum all blogs participating have to open their giveaways to Canadians. How refreshing! I don't usually do blog hop giveaways here at 100 Stars Or Less but I when I heard about this one I jumped at the chance.

My giveaway is for Canadians only.

I know how irritating it can be for Canadians trying to enter giveaways. A large majority of them are US only and at the opposite end of the spectrum we have giveaways open to everyone in the world. So I wanted to give my fellow citizens a better chance of winning ;D

Here's what I have to offer. There will be one winner who can choose from either of these options:

Option 1

The Jewels of Sophia Tate by Doris Etienne. Kindle edition.
I recently interviewed Doris for a feature on the blog. She is a local author and the book is set in my town - Kitchener. It is a YA book. Here is the interview. It also includes a summary and an excerpt from the book at the end of the post.

Option 2

$5 Tim Card (so you can get something for yourself to sip or eat while relaxing with a book) PLUS this set of big cats (2 bookmarks and a postcard) from the Toronto Zoo.

How to enter
Fill out the FORM (this is a link - click it!)
Open to Canadians only.
Giveaway closes July 3rd, 2011 at 11:59 PM.
Must be 13 years or older to participate.

There is no need to be a follower of the blog, but please take a look around and if you like what you see either follow on GFC, RSS, or book mark the website so you can come back and read more.

Good luck!

Before you leave me, make sure to stop by my other giveaway post for FM For Murder if you'd like to be entered into more giveaways here and cozy mysteries are just your cup of tea.

Your next stop on the hop is Musings of a YA Reader 

Or choose from any starting point in the list below:
