Hot and fresh on a cold, snowy day
It's the start of another week, and we're buried in snow. But that won't stop us from sharing the good news.
First, several weeks ago we posted the release of Cort McMeel's debut novel, Short. Well, Cort called to tell us the first print run had sold out. Already! Congratulations. Here is Cort signing stock after his recent appearance at the Colfax Tattered Cover.
Next up, local writing pal, Julie Kazimer, has sold another urban fantasy novel, The Body Dwellers
. If you haven't done so already, follow her blog, The Never Never News
, and get the skinny on all the weird and pervy doings in Fairytale Land.
One thing that really chafes us writers is when we bust our tight little behinds to turn in work to our editors and we wait. And wait. And wait. So what happens? What's keeping our editors from pouring love over our precious manuscripts? Shalom Auslander spills the beans in his article Excuses, Excuses
in Tablet, A New Read on the Jewish Life
Here at the Biting Edge, we're not big on New Year's resolutions. If you have to do something, then start right now. But for 2011, I've decided to be more diligent in slinging paint and creating new work. My newest inspiration in Gregory Manchess, whose work you may recognize from tons of fantasy book covers. Here he creates something fantastic for Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time - Lord of Chaos.
Starting this Thursday, our newest contest: Bad sex in modern literature. Jeanne will provide the details. Enter and win cool swag.
