I made this tonight and it is absolutely delicious (and simple)! The only thing I can't figure out is why my fresh blueberries all sank to the bottom of the bread during baking. How do I prevent this?

I haven't made this recipe yet, but you can try stirring about 1 TBS flour into the berries before putting them in the mix. Sometimes that's just what they need to stay afloat.
