My Favorite Bit: Lee Moyer talks about LITERARY PINUPS 2013

When I met Lee Moyer, I was fairly new to the convention circuit and he was delightful and helped me meet people. He also showed me his portfolio which was staggering and made me drool just a little. At some point, he showed me his Literary Pinup calendar, which didn’t have a home at that …

Here’s Tina to talk about her Favorite …
