My Night with Lesley Livingston & Giveaway

Last night the lovely and very talented Lesley Livingston was at The Dominion on Queen Pub for the release party of her newest book: Starling. Lesley loved my new tattoo, how cool is that?!  I had an amazing time and met some wonderful fans of Lesley's and I can only hope we can stay in contact in the future. One of those ladies was a fellow reviewer, Michele B. of Reading Lark. Sometimes it's amazing just how small the world really is.

Not only did I get to see Lesley again, this is my fourth time, and I never get tired of listening to her humor! But there was a surprise guest: David Hayter! He is an actor-turned-screenwriter, and best known to fans as the voice of "Solid Snake" in the Metal Gear Solid video games, as well as being a screenwriter on X-Men, The Hulk and The Scorpion King. He also received raves for his screenplay adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' classic Watchmen. Hayter's other cracks at adapting comics for the screen include Iron Man and Black Widow.  

David was very friendly and kind enough to have signed my book, which is amazing because Lesley referenced him in a scene within Starling.

And now for the giveaway, it's not much because I am financially strapped right now. Lesley was awesome (of course) and signed five of the Starling promo cards and I'd like to give them to you!

Entering is simple! Just tell me who your favorite character of Lesley's is, and don't forget to leave your email with your comment so I can contact you if you win!  Giveaway ends September 7, 2012 September 14th at 12AM EST.
