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!

  Red Alert
Mario here:

Book 4 of the Felix Gomez adventures, Jailbait Zombie, is on the streets and we're in maximum promotional mode.

But first:

What's the connection between the who-done-it, paranormal, and easy listening jazz? I explain it all in my essay on Michelle Gagnon's Kill Zone blog. Bonus, you get to share what paranormal creature you'd like to be.


The A.V. section of this week's Onion will run an interview of me by the fabulous (and dangerous) Cat Rambo. Besides her work on the Onion, she's a co-editor of the acclaimed Fantasy Magazine:

Over at The Big Thrill, newsletter of the International Thriller Writers, I interviewed Colorado author Jim Hansen where we discussed his most recent novel, Voodoo Laws.

WAIT! There's more:

If Felix's fourth book is out, that means Book 5 is almost done. So far, Felix has gone against nymphos, alien gangsters, government assassins, and zombies. Now what? Get this: werewolves. In the wicked city a.k.a Charleston, SC. For research I visited the Lowcountry and had the good fortune of having Mark Jones show me Charleston's diamonds and dirt.

Mark vents about what's overrated in our popular culture. You're invited to vent as well.

Your Cheating Heart.

Infidelity can be bad news...but also good business. Real life private investigator, Colleen Collins, tells how taking on a case involving a cheating spouse can mean more than gathering the dirty goods. You could wind up as a marriage counselor. Check out her post on the blog of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Mystery Writers of America.

SRO for Zombie and Werewolves!

Carrie Vaughn, everybody's favorite werewolf author, joined me for a joint signing of our newest books at the Denver Book Mall. A bunch of local authors showed up in support of us, to include Terry Wright, (Hugo and Nebula award winning) Connie Willis, Laura Reeve, Warren Hammond, our own Jeanne, and Thea Hutchinson (see below).

Here's Carrie explaining why, to her, vampires are so last century. Notice the skeptical audience (and rightly so).

I raffle a notorious Devil Duck at every signing. Here is the latest victim, the unsuspecting Thea.

New Contest!

Your chance to win lots of shwag. All you have to do is explain which fictional character you'd like to spend the night with. Remember, the seamier the story, the better. Check back on Thursday when Jeanne explains the dirty details and how to enter.

Felix on the road.

sounds like you are going to be very busy! I'm really excited for you that your new book is finally out and wish it plenty of success!
Thanks Leia. The Paranormal Bender Tour will be busy and so much fun.
Congrats on the book release. My daugther's preschool has required parenting classes on wednesdays and the parents already think I'm weird. Maybe I should just pretend I'm back in 10th grade history, bring it to school, and read it during class, lol.

But then they'll know why the tot makes up stories about evil vampires falling in love with worm farmers who enter sexy man contests...
Hahaha oh my Suzanne. You child has quite the imagination! I knew little kid once that wrote a story about homicidal mermaids, so I think evil vampires in love with worm farmers is probably pretty normal for imaginative children :)
Well Mario how you get great turnouts. I'd be there myself ... except for the small problem being on the other side of the country.
Just a word to the wise -- I don't recommend reading Jailbait Zombie whilst trying to eat your lunch.

Or dinner. Or, heck, anything.

I always like getting double duty out of things. This time I've got a fun read AND a diet aid.
