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!

  RT nominees and Perverted Creatures of the Night

Mario here,

Call us self-serving, but as proud members of the League of Reluctant Adults, we're shouting the news. Take a look at this roster of Leaguer nominees for Romantic Times RT Bookreviewer's Awards.

Vampire Romance: 




Michele Bardsley for Cross Your Heart







Paranormal Fiction:

Dakota Cassidy for My Way To Hell



               Michelle Rowen for 
                                 Something Wicked








Molly Harper for Nice Girls Don't Live Forever







Though she's not a Leaguer, we have to give kudos to Biting-Edge ex-pat Marta Acosta for Haunted Honeymoon






Urban Fantasy Novel:


Our own Jeanne Stein for Chosen


                   Carolyn Crane for 
                                       Double Cross






Urban Fantasy Protagnonist:



Mark Henry for Battle of the Network Zombies









And though they're not technically Leaguers, these nominees deserve special mention for being such awesome writers and cool friends (and generous when it comes to paying bar tabs):

Young Adult Paranormal/Fantasy Novel:



Paolo Bacigalupi for Ship Breaker









Science Fiction Novel:



      Connie Willis for Blackout 
                                and All Clear









And two more who are definitely Leaguer in spirit (i.e., open-minded in the way an author of erotic fiction should be), it's no surprise to learn these two wild and wooly women were nominated for:



Erotic Romance: Lauren Dane for Coming Undone


               Erotic Fiction: 
                            Megan Hart for 
                                                 Switch





Sadly, we have to mention the recent passing of two film celebrities.

First, one of the most famous actors you might never heard of: Ingrid Pitt (born as Ingoushka Petrov in Poland 1937). Pitt survived the Nazi concentration camps, escaped communist east Berlin, and then worked in Hammer Horror Films, making the classics The Vampire Lovers and Countess Dracula. She also acted in other movies such as Doctor Zhivago and Where Eagles Dare

Perverted creatures of the night...Yes!



And the great comedian Leslie Nielsen. "...and don't call me Shirley." Despite his pratfalls in Airplane and The Naked Gun, we'll always remember Nielsen as the dashing spaceship captain in Forbidden Planet.

Thanks for the mention! There are a lot of my favorites from this year on that list. See you in LA.
 
Congratulations, Jeanne! Best wishes to you and the other nominees, particularly Paulo and Connie. As Mario mentioned, they're great fun at MileHiCon (and friendly).
 
Congratulations, Jeanne. You deserve it. The book is great, as is the series.
 
Julie, we can't wait to sing praises about your book.
