  39. What a list of great titles. Unfortunately I cannot join the giveaway. Formerly of Massachusetts, I am living now in Costa Rica. Recently retired on a social security stipend — which is why I was looking forward to free books — I have just had my recent book released on Amazon.com. It is nonfiction: Behind the Black Robes: Failed Justice. I have two more nonfictions to write. Then on to legal genre whodunnits . . . if I live long enough.

    Congratulations to the winners-to-be.

    What does one have to do to win?

    Is it a raffle? a random drawer?

    I know a Mass. quadriplegic who is looking for free books. I do not know what to tell him to do.

  40. What a wonderful giveaway, I would love to be one of the 5 lucky winners! Congrats on a great first year!
