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!

  We Like a Big Mess

Mario here:

Messy Bookshelf Contest.  But first:

Spring forward?  I hate Daylights Savings Time.  I walk around all day feeling like I'm behind in everything.  Plus it's raining and cold.






Happy St Patrick's Day.  Premature I know but we had our parade yesterday and thankfully, the Denver weather was bright and warm.  Here's an inventive take on the traditional leprechaun costume.  









And of course, nothing says "Erin go braugh!" like a giant inflatable monkey.


In the BSP Department:

We have the Marshal Zeringue's Pg. 69 test of Werewolf Smackdown on his blog, Campaign for the American Reader.

And this new contest over at Amberkatze's Book Blog.  Many prizes, including books from your favorite Urban Fantasy authors and a $50 gift card for Barnes&Noble.

The contest at Bitten by Books continues, so stack the deck in your favor by leaving comments.

Sunday's Denver Post has this nice review.  

Plus this write-up in The Big Thrill.  

Biting-Edge wants to know: How Messy is Your Bookshelf?  

Last week you saw Jeanne's bookshelf.  What a catastrophe, no?  I think one of her books was out of alphabetical order.  Either that or she hadn't dusted since the morning.  



For comparison, here's one of my bookshelves.  




Now, don't you feel better about yourself?  













How many of you can put us to shame?  Here's your chance.  We'll give an awesome mystery prize for the messiest bookshelf.  You will at least get a coveted Devil Duck and shwag (not the medicinal kind).  Contest runs through Noon Mountain Time, Tuesday, March 30, 2010.

Post a comment AND send your entry to: author...at...marioacevedo...dot...com.  Gotta do both.

The fine print: If you send a picture, don't complain if we post it.  The winner decided by Biting-Edge--sober, buzzed, or unconscious--and that's that!

 
Comments:

My cat resents stuffed pussy jokes.

I'm expecting great messes.

And there's really nothing worse than a stuffed, resentful pussy, now, is there, Mario?

*wondering how many times she can say "stuffed pussy" on Mario and Jeanne's blog before she's banned*
 
lol what about all us neat freaks :P
 
Is that a liquor bottle I spy there in the right hand corner?
 
lol I was just about to reorganize my bookshelves when I saw this contest. As is 3 of my 6 are disorganized enough to photograph I think :D

So, is the kitty the keeper of the shelves? or is the kitty eyeing the bottles of spirits? ;)
