Such a shame to only be able to make this open to folks in the US. Happens all too often :(

Eliza Osborn said...

This was so hard!

I understand that it is a matter of cost rather than geographic discrimination as is so common with many publishing companies.

I answered these as fast as I could 'cause I want to get back to reading. If this had been asked an hour earlier or an hour later, I probably would have different answers!
