The Return of IMM + Andrea Cremer Signing and GIVEAWAY!

Not a ton of people voted in my poll about whether you want to see IMM posts from me, but those that did clearly indicated that they would.  The people talk, and I listen.  I will return to doing an IMM post.  I may not do one each week (maybe bi-weekly), but I will jump back into them.
IMM is hosted by The Story Siren each week.

Here is a pic of what I got this week!

LAUNCH PARTY
Lastly! I was lucky enough to go to the launch party for Andrea Cremer and Wolfsbane
 It was super cool, and she was very nice and down to earth.  Below are a few pics.  
She read a small part of Wolfsbane and signed books.

For one lucky reader I have a SIGNED copy of Nightshade to give out!
TO ENTER:
Must be US resident
I’m going old fashioned! MUST LEAVE A CONTACT METHOD (EMAIL or TWITTER NAME)
