It's your last chance to submit your haiku for our Quick and Dirty Valentine's Contest
. We've got some great entries. One comment has been that considering our contest has a Valentine's theme--the most romantic day of the year (next to Guy Faulks Day)--we haven't got enough poems about sex. Shake up your libidos and share.
We at Biting-Edge are all about BSP--Blatant Self Promotion. To that end, fellow mystery novelists Bonnie Ramthun
has her new young adult thriller coming out, The White Gates
. Check out her book trailer
Now for the local news (and different white gates):
On the way home today from the local coffee shop (not that local as the local one closed), some guy veered off the sidewalk toward me. A little background about where I live. Five Points, Denver. Despite the half-million dollar townhouses and lofts, it's ghetto. The rescue mission is six blocks away. I've found drunks sleeping in the weeds behind the Dumpsters. Instead of rising to the sounds of chirping birds, we're awaken by car alarms and police sirens. But it's home. Anyway, this guy approaches and asks if I want to buy some coke. This was 3PM. Do I look like a coke fiend? I can barely afford pizza. Any of you have weird stories about your neighborhood?
Back to Valentine's Day. For those of you without a sweetie this Thursday, I feel your pain. How about this place for a classy bout of rented love?
