[Closed] Royal Flush Sweepstakes - International - Oct 2017

I was the lucky winner of the last sweepstakes, restarted after a long hiatus by lauraloo29. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/542921

This one has a ROYAL theme...and I received a wide selection of interesting books (see the last thread) as the genre is not limited. Your book can be in any genre having a link with Royalty - real / fictional / mythological / historical ..etc. etc. (even the name of book / author could be the link). If you like, you may send some related memorabilia as well.

The instructions (copied from the last thread):

1. Post here to enter & be prepared to post anywhere in the world, as this is an International sweeps.
2. PM me with your name and postal address and mark "Royal Flush" in the title. You can also put your name down as 'send only' if you don't want to win.
3. The draw will close on Oct 31st. That'll give everybody a few weeks to sign on for the fun.
We will then have 1 winner and 1 decoy. Everyone will receive a PM with the winner's details while the winner will receive the name of the decoy.
Be prepared to send your book shortly there-after.
4. Please DON'T let the winner know that they have won by posting here or PMing them. It is more fun for the books to start arriving out of the blue!
5. The winner will post here as the books start to arrive. It is fun for everyone to see what they got!
6. The winner will host the sweepstakes again in next 2-3 months.

****************************
Closing: October 31st

This is the first sweepstakes I have the honour of hosting. I hope many of you will join in for the fun. And please let me know if I miss anything.
