So are you going out at midnight? Pel might make a dash for the Borders at Penn Plaza. Remember Borders stores listed here have drawings to win a Stephenie Meyer signed bookplate. So whether if you live in Alaska or Arizona, you have a real shot at winning a Stephenie Meyer autograph delivered to you that night in your local store! It’s a guaranteed way to know that you have the genuine thing. There are a lot of fakes out there, these autographs are 100% authentic! Borders is also selling the book for $8.39 for three days only, quite the bargain.

Nashville DVD Release Party with Alphie

BordersAfter a little bit of confusion from Borders (they didn’t catch on that Pel and Alphie don’t live in the same place!) I have managed to confirm that I (Alphie) will be at the Borders store in the Cool Springs shopping area in Franklin, TN for their DVD release party.  If you’ve been to any of our movie events in Tennessee, then you shouldn’t have any problems finding this Borders store as it is pretty much across the street from where we’ve had our movie events!  Because I love giving things away, I will bring with me a wolf pack canvas tote bag autographed by some of the members of the pack to give away at the store for one of their events.  If you want to win, you have to show up!  So I’ll see you tonight!  The festivities begin around 9:30.

As a reminder, Pel will be in NYC with Kara from TwilightMoms, and she’ll also be giving away autographed items.
