Default Another Signed book find

I got this about a week ago, it is a very hard to find signed SFBC edition of Crystal Signer. As you can see I had some help with taking the photos. He wanted to say hello to a friend of his. Cheryl... Teddy says HELLO!!!

Congratulations on the new book.
Is it just me, or does Killa look rather unhappy on that cover?

I agree that this is one of the Grumpiest looking covers that I have seen on any of Anne's books so far. I had bought this book already but it wasn't signed, and this one looked in very nice condition.

Teddy just had to help me with several of my new book photos...ever try to stop a Cat when he wants to help you...sigh!

I will give Teddy, pets and cuddles from all his new friends.

Mender, just start looking for it anywhere you can think of...thats what I did. I had to search for my first normal copy of it for a while too though. There for a bit, I was doubtful if I would ever find a signed copy of this book, but low and behold I found this one staring me right in the face, with one of my favorite ebay sellers. Good Luck with your own search.
