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 Con Wrap Up
I discovered to my delight that one of my panels was taped and we were given permission to share so here is: “Kick-Ass Character” Panel with Charlaine Harris, Christina Henry, Chloe Neill, Jeaniene Frost and me. Moderated by Richelle Mead.

For those who may want to share these videos with your friends, on your websites and blogs; please make sure you credit Eric & Sookie Lovers with a link back to this post, and most especially to LPCoder for recording the videos. The three panelists in the first two videos (available at this link, too and of particular interest to Charlaine, Nalini Singh and Jeaniene Frost fans) have given LPCoder permission to share the videos online, and in turn, she has given us permission to exclusively share them with you.Thank you in advance.

The panel I'm on (here) runs one hour. I think it's worth it.

This was one of the best conferences I've ever attended. Not only because the workshops varied from e-pubing with Joe Konrath to genre panels to reader panels, but because of the opportunities to schmooze with the likes of Charlaine Harris and J R Ward and Jeaniene Frost.

Charlaine and I are friends that go back to the 80's. It's always a joy to be able to spend time with her. As is always the case, her fan club The Charlatans put on a great pizza party! The one on one time she, Paula and I got to enjoy is always worth the trip.

Add to that the excitement of meeting Anne Rice for the first time (I had her sign my first edition Interview With The Vampire) and sharing a few words with Sue Grafton (we met first when A is For Alibi was just released at a signing in San Diego) and I was in fan girl heaven.

Then there's the bar and panel time spent with Jaye Wells, Nicole Peeler, Liliana Hart, Richelle Mead, all not only great pals but great writers, as well. Jill Smith, reviewer at RT Magazine, who takes time from her busy schedule each year to join me for a dinner and solve-the-troubles-of-the-world chat. And Heather Osborn, the gracious and very generous editor at Samhain, who is always ready to party!!

There's never enough time at these things to see and chat with everyone. But YA author Suzanne Lazear and I did manage to do dinner one night. She was resplendent in her gorgeous steam punk outfits.

Crit partner YA author Aaron Ritchey attended also. We had a problem with communication, I had his old cell number so we never did connect until the very last day. But each time I saw him he had women surrounding him so I know he didn't really care! Looking the way he does, it wasn't surprising.

Of course, the very best is meeting readers at a con like this. I'll never get over the thrill of being asked to sign a book or reader or tee shirt or bag. It makes all the anxiety of today's publishing world a little easier to take. I appreciate every one of you.

Which is a good segue into a program I'll be attending Sunday, April 22. Englewood Library's Meet the Faces Behind the Books. Fifty local authors representing fiction, nonfiction and young adult all under one roof. Stop by between 1 - 3 PM

Nice video. Jeanne, you looked confused, as always.
That's right, Aaron Ritchey, dangerously handsome. And balding.
