Note: If your PM doesn't seem to have reached me, try my e-mail: kate (at)

Another note: Because my TBR bookcase is overflowing, I'm not looking to trade right now. I am also not sending random RABCKs internationally if asked. I'm concentrating on wild releasing. If you want to trade or get free books, try paperback swap.
