June 11th is the birthday of a very special woman, Thelma Daw. Please take five minutes to meet her in person, and then you'll know why she's so special to me:
So, in honour of Thelma, I'm starting an annual giveaway of Mariana, the book she loves best. This year I only have paper copies, I'm afraid, but in future I'll try to include ebooks as well, to be fair.
The contest (and the comment thread) will stay open until midnight Eastern Standard Time on Friday, June 15, 2012, and I'll announce the winners here on Sunday, June 17. Best of luck!
And be sure to send all your best wishes and good thoughts to Thelma, as she celebrates her 88th birthday!
