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!

  An earthquake of entertainment. And again with the shoes.

Mario here:

Those literary wonders at Lighthouse Writers don't host parties, they throw soirees!  Soirees so awesome they are measured on the Richter scale.

Lighthouse ended this year's LitFest with a fantabulous shindig, How to Feed a Writer (much appreciated by us starving artist types). This event was like being in a feature by Sunset Magazine. One highlight of the evening was the invention of a new vodka cocktail, the delicious (and potent) Pepper Dog.


Last month I posted a guest blog on Pens Fatales where I dissed women literary writers for their somber choice in shoes compared to genre scribes.  Apparently a few of the Lighthouse writers read the blog and decided to prove me wrong. Sleek pumps and stiletto heels arrived in mass, two-by-two. Here is the most fantastic pair of shoes (courtesy of agent Erin Hosier) straddling my spectator wing tip.  




Board President Jay Kenney (in his Gatsby linen suit) opened up his beautiful home near the Denver Botanic Gardens. 
















Program Director Andrea Dupree made the introductions while her husband and Executive Director, Mike Henry, read a killer essay by John Broening comparing the life of a chef with that of a writer (guess who makes more $$).









 Julie Schilder, of InkWell Management, couldn't help but vogue beside the home's art collection.

Who can resist a man in a tux?  Not me (in the chef's hat). Especially if that man is the dashing Dr. David Rothman. He later hand fed me cake, wedding fashion. (Though we did not consummate marital vows, at least that I remember--too many Pepper Dogs.)


Unsoliciated Author Pimpage!

If you're not familiar with Toni McGee Causey, shame on you. Buy her books and exercise your funny bone until it dislocates.

She presented back-to-back workshops on voice and screenplays at the Heart of Denver Romance Writers meeting.  Posing here with Cher Gorman (L) and the amazing Margie Lawson (R).



And that's not all.  In one of life's serendipitous moments, I ran into Susan May Warren from Minnesota at the Mercury Cafe. She mentioned that she was an author. I said, so was I, and from then, the conversation ran at full steam. Turns out Susan is as prolific a writer as she is a super nice person.
