There will be a  before and after photo and even a little extra news on what's coming up on this blog!  Also, an amazing giveaway to enter if you have not done so already on another stop!So don't miss ANY of it! With that said, let's get on with the reason you are here to begin with!Time for GRAM'S INTERVIEW!!!

Today we have with us Mrs. Garrett, otherwise known as Grams who is featured in the books The Conduit, Embrace, and the soon to be released Sacrifice. Mrs. Garrett thank you so much for being with us today! Fans of The Gryphon Series have compiled some questions they’d love for you to answer, so let’s get started.

First question, if you could travel in a Time Machine where would you go?
Grams-What the blazes kind of a question is that? What do you think I live in some weird fantasy novel? (Scoffs) Next question.

Moving on then, if you could invite any 5 people to dinner who would you choose?
Grams-George Clooney, Brad Pit, Sean Connery, Robert Downey Jr, and Betty White just so I look young by comparison. 

If you were stranded on a desert island what would you want with you?
Grams-Please see answer to the previous question.

You’re constantly surrounded by people with amazing abilities. If you could have any superpower which would you choose?
Grams-Hmmm…that’s a tricky one. Celeste is crazy strong, but it’d be fun to fly like Kendall. Not sure I’d like turning into a lion, that just looks painful when it happens to Gabe. I guess now that I think about it I’d kind of like to have Celeste’s friend Rowan’s mind control ability. Imagine the fun you could have with that. Oddly enough it makes me think of George Clooney again…

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Grams-Anything with chocolate in it, on it, or covering it.

Do you have a favorite breakfast food?
Grams-What’s with all the food questions? You buying me lunch after this? But to answer your question—honey, I’m southern. They’ll kick me out of the great state of Tennessee if I don’t answer biscuits and gravy.

Do you have a theme song?
Grams-Hell on Heels by the Pistol Annie’s. That’s me alright!

What is your favorite Quote?
Grams-The life of a superhero. Glamorous, no?” This really clever writer came up with that, but her name escapes me.

When you were little, what did you want to be when you "grew up"?
Grams-Happy, which is a goal I achieve almost every day.

Last question, if a movie was made about your life, who would you want to play you and why?
Grams-Michelle Pfeiffer, I think there’s a resemblance. Don’t you see it?

Well that’s all the time we have for today!
Grams-Oh, that was just rude.

Thanks again to Mrs. Garrett—Grams—for joining us! And a thank you to all of you for sending in your questions! Find out 

New versus the old....... Stacey decided it was time to step up her cover to The Conduit seeing she raised the bar so much higher in cover standards with her second book in the series Embrace and her upcoming third book Sacrifice! So, in order for them to all tie in together in a way we have the new cover! Personally, I love the new cover! I can't wait to get it in print and on my bookshelf! The cover represent's Celeste's inner Gryphon and how it's been a shadow of her for longer then she realizes and not must learn how to make the two, one!
