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!

From Flavorwire :

There’s book art — many beautiful examples of which are cropping up every day — and then there’s extreme book art. The exhilarating work of Madrid-based artist Alicia Martín clearly falls into the latter category. In her dramatic Biografias series, thousands of books explode out the windows of three buildings, evoking such forces of nature as waterfalls and tornadoes. To us, these massive sculptures symbolize the boundary-busting, life-changing power of literature — but we don’t want to over-think them, either, because they’re also just breathtaking to behold. Check out a selection of images from Biografias (including one that reveals what these structures look like from the inside) after the jump, and then visit Martín's gallery’s website to see more of her book-obsessed work.

I didn't go with the group on Friday to see John Carter, but the unanimous decision from the Pearl Street Writers Group seemed to be two thumbs up. Have you seen it? Are you an ERB fan? Or like me, just read his Tarzan books? I think Mario is planning to post a review on Monday.

Don't know if I've shared this before-- I'll be co-writing a new series with San Diego author and pal, Samantha Sommersby. We pitched it as: Without a Trace meets Angel—our “Angel” being an age-old Siren turned FBI Agent who is cursed by mortality and partnered with an alpha werewolf who’s fighting demons of his own. In search of redemption for past sins, they use the powers of seduction and strength, along with their knowledge of the supernatural to rescue damsels, bring big bads to justice, and capture one another's hearts.

We’ve already completed the first draft of book one, Fallen, and as soon as we get a publication date, we’ll let you all know!! It’s a different type of book for me. Not quite so kick-ass, a little more romantic.

So, that's it in my world. What's up in yours?

I Love all your kick ass books!! Please don't stop writing them. Its the only daydreaming Im allowed with 2 little boys runnin around.:)I go to the library & get your books, but if I had the $ I would buy them & read em over & over. fo sho
thank you! I love writing Anna and can't imagine my life without her!! I'm glad she is a part of your life, too.

Yea! Anna Strong. She's not sci-fi but she's badass. The series is coming to an end though, as do all good things.
When the series is over, Anna can stay at Felix's house...as long as she misbehaves...a lot.
In Felix's dreams, Mario!!!
Looking forward to many movies in the coming months. I can't wait to see Dark Shadows, even with the comic spin on it. Are you going to see Joss' flick that languished for three years and is finally out with the hunky guy who played Thor? I wasn't going to see 'Cabin in the Woods', but I read the review in Entertainment Weekly and saw that Joss is at the helm...so will go now.

Spring Break starts on Monday, I get Lasik on my eyes and Lady K and I will hang out with my dad for the week. Hoping to get to the zoo, Natural History Museum and the Botanic Garden.

Tomorrow we will go see The Lorax and we plan on seeing John Carter and This Means War.

Looking forward to the collaborative series!!
Hey Vickie-- no, I doubt I'll see Cabin in the Woods--horror stuff doesn't grab me..I know, I know, blasphemy since it's Joss. Will see John Carter and Dark Shadows for sure. And the Avengers, of course!!

Good luck with your surgery. And hope Lady K has fun on her week off. I'm sure she will.
