Welcome to Biting-Edge, a blog shared by authors and vampire experts, Mario Acevedo and Jeanne Stein. We’ll cover urban fantasy, vampires, pop culture, and all things Joss Whedon. Unlike other fantasy blogs, we don’t insist on body cavity searches (unless you ask politely). Snarkiness is most welcome...though we won't promise not to bite back!

  I'm back
Mario here:

I would thank Jeanne for covering for me while I was gone but she overdid the snarkiness...as if I deserved it. Jeanne is the queen of below-the-belt low blows (my mouth was otherwise occupied)...and I'll leave it at that.

Last week she posted my pics of the world-famous Paranormal Bender Tour. Four writers. One Kia. 3200 miles in five days. Whew. Thank goodness we were all nuts about hygiene.

For a lot of great tour pics, check out Cherie Priest's post (but make no comments about public breast feeding). For the record, the motel in San Diego wasn't that bad. Whiners!

And for wicked and perverse commentary on our trip (with absolutely no encouragement from me) see what Mark Henry says.

I wasn't home for more than a day when off I went to Charlottesville for the Virginia Festival of the Book. I was scheduled to appear with Kim Harrison who sadly had to cancel because of a tragic health issue in her family. We all send our condolences.

At the festival I did meet Alan Cheuse, the NPR book critic. Here he is with the unflappable Nancy Damon, the maven of all things literary this last weekend. Virginians love to read as you can tell by all the bookstores downtown and the several alternative weeklies (I counted three to our one Westword).

I also met Denise Hamilton, author of gritty LA noir stories and one of my favorite mystery writers.

Downtown Charlottesville was full of trendy and funky shops like the Mudhouse cafe
where I got with Justin Humphries (he of the big hands) where we discussed monster and sci-fi movies (and traded a lot of dirty jokes).

Humphries wrote an interview with me in their local weekly The Hook which you can read HERE.

After such a great weekend, I have to ask: where is the Colorado Festival of the Book?
Ooh, I really like Denise's Eve Diamond books :-) The standalone she released last year doesn't sound like my thing, but I sure hope she writes more Eve Diamond novels :-)

Thanks for sharing your fun, and have a lovely day! :-)
Thanks Tez. My day would be much lovelier if it wasn't for this cold. Yuck!
A cold? Are you sure it's a cold? You never did say if you came home with bite marks on your neck or not. I understand that the start of vampirism and zombiedom often mimic cold or flu-like symptoms. Is yuck all you can say?!?

Actually, "yuck" is a pretty erudite comment for Mario.
