Update: Contrary to what was reported on the CBC Books website and in Quill and Quire earlier, the Giller Prize folks have now clarified that the CBC/Giller Readers Choice selection will NOT be on the Giller long list unless the jury puts it there.
CBC has now changed its website accordingly and Quill and Quire has updated its post as well.
So there is, in fact, no long-list nomination for any author selected by readers.
Anyway, sorry everyone! But thanks so much for all your support, and I sure hope some of you win prizes! (The prizes look fantastic!)
