Biting at the World Wide Web
Last week I had mentioned my trip to Murder & Mayhem. Here we are, the new Rat Pack (we wish!) smoking cheap cigars outside the Iron Horse Hotel in Milwaukee. From right to left: JD Rhodes, Joe Konrath, Blake Crouch, Sean Chercover, and me in the Broncos cap.
To celebrate the 150th birthday of Denver, the Rocky Mountain News
published twelve stories by local authors in a collection, A Dozen On Denver
. Last Friday, the Rocky hosted a reception (with plenty of bottled water--if you had a real thirst, go somewhere else) to acknowledge the writers, editors, and supporting staff. Here are two of my author friends who contributed work: bestselling culinary killer Diane Mott Davidson (left) and hard-boiled mystery writer Manuel Ramos (right).

If you check out the right side of the Biting Edge blog, you'll see plenty of links to other blogs and websites. So I decided to wander over there and see what's up with their corners of the World Wide Web.
Biting Edge ex-pat Marta Acosta
gives us contests and the low-down on upcoming fantasy movies such as a werewolf Russell Crowe, and the remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still
, starring Keanu Reeves. My first reaction: oh no. I've seen the trailer and my reaction is now: OH NO!
The CGI department worked overtime and it shows.
Over at Midnight Moon Cafe
, AE Rought writes about her brush with the supernatural during a recent trip to her brother's grave. Afterwards, follow the link on her blog to her author's webpage. She writes contemporary and urbanfantasy romance so don't be surprised to see pictures of shirtless, hunky cowboys.
Next, prolific NYT bestseller fantasy author, Sherrilyn Kenyon
. Check out her awesome book trailer for Acheron. Tag line: The strongest steel is forged by the fires of Hell!
How could I not mention our favorite werewolf author, Carrie Vaughn
. Carrie dishes on Vampires. Werewolves. Talk Radio. Enjoy.
