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!

  WOO HOO!
Mario here:

There are many proud days in a writer's life:

Finishing a manuscript.  Getting a book published.  And watching your kid graduate from college.


My youngest son Emiliano graduated today from Metro State College in Denver, another step on a path that included:






Stalking the apartment in Flower Mound, TX.
















Playing Aquaman in Fresno, CA.
















Posing as Judge Dredd with the costume I made for him.

















Prom night.  Arvada, CO.

AND FINALLY!

Graduation.  English major with a minor in philosophy.  A man with big ideas.  He plans to teach but I know he wants to write (wonder where he got that itch?)

The occasion was a great opportunity to get with family and friends.  My sister Sylvia, her partner Janet, Emil (in the fashionable red hat), and friend Ilana in Wash Park.


The procession onto the field.  The ceremony was outside and we couldn't have had better weather unless it had rained money.


Emil with his older brother, Alex.

With fellow graduate and friend, Cassandra.
And now, to march into the future (and a step closer to moving out of the house).

Breaking news!
From Publishers Lunch:

"TEMPEST RISING author Nicole Peeler's next three Jane True books, again to Devi Pillai at Orbit, by Rebecca Strauss at McIntosh & Otis."   Can't wait!

As for me,

TUESDAY
the launch party for my comic book, 
Killing the Cobra, Issue #1.
7-9PM, May 18, at the Goosetown Tavern.
Food.  Drink Specials.  Door Prizes.
And comics!


 
Comments:
Does it feel like he was just a toddler yesterday? LOL My son is a junior in high school and the college thing is just freaking me out. I swear he was a bald baby like a week ago. He's thinking of teaching too. He's been tutoring kids in geometry since 9th grade, and his teachers are amazed at how well he does with the kids. He's my oldest, and sending him off to college is not going to be easy.

I can't wait to see the comic:)
 
Your family is adorable! And thank you so much. I wish I could be at your launch party! Comics are sexy! *hugs*
 
Congrats Mario!!
 
What a happy day. Congratulations Emil and proud papa!

(I always forget we both have Alexes. We'll have to share Alex war stories sometime. Seems like the name influences the personality.)
 
Oh, and I can't come cuz it's my anniversary. Can't wait to get a signed copy though! Have fun!
 
Thanks all. For graduation, he's going to Hawaii. Sans dad, unfortunately for me.
 
Congratulations!! Sorry you don't get to go to Hawaii, but I bet he's not.....
 
Wish I'd known last night that Emil had just graduated...and the Sylvia was in town.

Thanks a lot for letting your FRIENDS know first!!

J.
 
Congrats on his graduation! What a joyous and momentous occasion for your family!
