  1. Hi!

    I was contacted through my blog “The Wonderful World of Lilli” by Mari and she sent me this comment:
    “Dear Lilli,

    Do you have an email address I can get in touch with you by? I am reaching out to you on behalf of a project called NUBB – a group trying to promote Nordic ya literature across the boarders in the Nordic/Scandinavian countries.

    On behalf of the NUBB editoral team
    All the best, Mari ”

    So, I guess you can get my email address this way, if the comment was a real thing 🙂 (You’ll never know when on Internet).

    Best regards
    Hanna “Lilli” Roslöf
