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!

  Over & Out...

Remember when I said I loved indie book stores and their clever marketing ideas? Here's another one from Portlandia:

If you are a Fifty Shades fan, this article from imdb might interest you. Actresses who might play Anastasia Steele in the movie.

Emilia Clarke, shown here, seems to be the favorite. Since I haven't read the books, I have no opinion. What about you?

I just got my revisions for the ninth Anna Book, which I think will be called Blood Bonds.  Anyway, I'm checking out for the weekend to work on them. I need to add an entire scene of about 10k words so I have my work cut out for me.

I'm sure you have better plans than that. Here down Denver way it's finally starting to thaw out. I had lunch with some good friends this afternoon and believe it or not, I didn't need my parka or gloves!! Did that sun ever feel good! I know it won't be this nice where I'm going tomorrow, but it's just as well. I have to WORK!!!!

Wow. It's hard to believe that you are working on the *ninth* book.

Over here on the other coast, my area actually never got any snow or ice. They say we are due for some this weekend, but I'll believe it when I see it. The past couple of weeks it's been so warm that I have barely needed to wear sleeves. If it hadn't been for the rain I wouldn't have even worn a jacket. Talk about mixed up seasons. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, but it still makes you pause a bit.

I suspect this weekend will find me playing games (I'm working my way though inXile's game The Bard's Tale, from 2004, and it is hysterical) and baking cookies.
Hibernate and write well. When you get a chance, go find a Burn-Your-Face-Off margarita.
Leia--the weather has been crazy for everyone. Too cold for us for sure...

Mario--no margaritas...no Old Fashions...no rum cocktails. It's work, work, work for me this weekend. Well, maybe a little beer and maybe a glass or two of wine...but that's it!!
I love Portlandia! And the feminist bookstore owners definitely highlight the sometimes weird, but always "out-of-the-box" thinking required to maintain such an establishment.

Re the 50 Shades movie, ugh, I'm already tired of hearing about it, let alone dealing with the upcoming marketing tidal wave. I confess, I was a 50 Shades reader, but it's only because I was high on the buzz. Really! By page 99 of the 2nd book, I realized, as if via a divine intervention, that the predictable plot, shallow character development, and ridiculous, ongoing angst of the female protagonist had clogged my arteries to the point of stroke. So, I placed all 3 books, the last uncracked, in my Goodwill bag. Buzz kills. Really.
Renata- I feel your pain!!
