As I live in the Netherlands, do you you also ship there? Otherwise not much use participating, although I do really appreciate the invitation ;)


Cristina M. Sburlea Hi, thank you for becoming my friend on Goodreads. I am organizing a giveaway. On December 8, I will send out a copy of my epic fantasy novel titled Creatures of Darkness and Light - titans, humans, and the beasts and my paranormal fantasy novel titled 300 Years of Sin (btw, there are no sparkly vampires here, but there's quite the body count), each e-book will go to a different person. Those who want to participate have to like and leave a comment (on my FB wall) with the name of the e-book they want. If you would like to participate, you can check out my FB page: https://www.facebook.com/MariaCristin... or my Goodreads page blog.
