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!

It's Wednesday and this is going to be a bit of a ramble (kind of like Mario's blogs) because I just don't feel like getting organized. So here goes:



First, a bit of pimping for Suzanne Lazear's upcoming release: Innocent Darkness. I'm waiting to get a copy of this new YA Steampunk. Here's the description from Suzanne's website:

Sixteen-year-old Noli Braddock's hoyden ways land her in an abusive reform
school far from home. On mid-summer's eve she wishes to be anyplace but that
dreadful school. A mysterious man from the Realm of Faerie rescues her and
brings her to the Otherworld, only to reveal that she must be sacrificed,
otherwise, the entire Otherworld civilization will perish.

Innocent Darkness is set for release in August of 2012. Steampunk fairies--I LOVE it!!

I've been doing a lot of YA reading lately. Just finished Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake and am almost finished with Nightspell by Leah Cypress. Any favorite YA authors you'd like to recommend?

It's snowing today. Good day to write, which is what I've been doing. There are still too many leaves on the trees though, and I'm afraid there will be a lot of broken branches when the sun comes out again.

Anybody doing NaNoWriMo? Started unofficially today but haven't logged in yet.

My editor emailed me to let me know Anna has been nominated for best UF protag (the second time, she won it in 2008) by RT Book Review Magazine. As always, the competition is against not only good writers, but this time, some of my friends!

I'm glad I don't have to choose. Diana, Jaye, Nicole and I are all League of Reluctant Adults members and therefore partners in crime. Maria Lima is a friend. The only two I don't know personally are Karen and Amanda.

Went to a movie this weekend, Ides of March. I don't think there was a single new idea in the entire movie. All the political cliches were there--backstabbing, the "honorable" politician who turns out not to be, dirty tricks, extortion. I guess the only good thing about the movie is that it sets the stage for the upcoming Presidential election. A reminder of what we're in for.

However, there was a trailer for a movie I can't wait to see:


| Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows | Movie Trailer | Review

Looks good!

And lastly, a shout out to pal Stacia Kane who is under the weather. Get better soon, kid!!

So those are my rambling thoughts for this week-- what's on your mind?
