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!

  Broken Links, Mended Lives
This will be short. I am under the weather--now that's a stupid expression--I'm sick. Since next week is Romantic Times, I just hope to be back in fighting shape by Tuesday. But here are a couple of things of interest.

Broken Links Mended Lives—Finalist in the 2010 CO Book Awards

Colorado Center for the Book at Colorado Humanities is pleased to announce that finalists have been selected for the 2010 Colorado Book Awards.

"This year's selectors read and discussed 145 entries to select these authors and their works for the Colorado Book Awards finalist level," says Josephine Jones, Colorado Humanities Director of Programs & Center for the Book.

The Colorado Book Awards recognize outstanding contributions by Colorado authors, editors, illustrators and photographers in multiple categories: anthology/collection, biography, children's literature, creative nonfiction, history, literary fiction, genre fiction (historical, romance, science fiction/fantasy, mystery/thriller) general nonfiction, juvenile literature, pictorial, poetry, and young adult literature.

Winners in all categories will be announced at the 19th annual Colorado Book Awards in June during the Aspen Summer Words Literary Festival the week of June 21-25, 2010.



Broken Links Mended Lives: A selection of short stories by members of Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers, Janet Lane, Susan Mackay Smith and Jeanne C. Stein, editors, RMFW Press

A Dozen on Denver: Stories, Rocky Mountain News, editor, Fulcrum Publishing

Beats At Naropa: An Anthology, Anne Waldman and Laura Wright, editors, Coffee House Press

Broken Links, Mended Lives is the anthology that Susan Mackay Smith, Janet Lane and I edited. So we are particularly excited about the honor. We had a great collection of stories including one by our own Mario (and we made the finals anyway!)

An attaboy to my publisher Penguin for this new program;

We Give Books is a free website that enables anyone with access to the Internet to put books in the hands of children who don’t have them, simply by reading online.

Simply choose the charity you want to read for and then select the books you want to read. For each book you read online, we donate a book to a leading literacy group on your behalf.

Go here for details.

For those of you interested, here is a video of the volcanic eruption that caused so much trouble in the air space over much of Europe last week.

If you scroll down to the blog Send Cash – Not Ash, you can read some personal observations.

Sorry for such an abbreviated post-- but I am thinking of you!!!
Hi Jeanne! Have fun at RT. Several of my fellow "Lolitas" from my group steampunk blog are going (I am so very jealous) as are my friends the "Smutketeers" (they're having a party on Friday). Feel better!

Thanks, Suzi-- I wish you were coming, too.

J: {{HUGS}} and I hope you feel better soon, toots!!
Me, too, Vickie-- I don't get sick very often.

someone in my RWA chapter is running a contest where the prize is a ticket to RomCom. Think anyone from LA is driving? (think the hotel allows tents?) It would be fun to go and see you, even if it is *right* before RWA nationals. (would anyone notice if I snuck in the tot, lol, nah, she'd have everyone charmed in 5 minutes, right?) :)
the tot would be your ticket in for sure--let me know if you decide to come. This is my first RomCon so I'm not sure what to expect...

OMG. I won. I didn't think I would, which is why I entered. I can't actually afford to go speak in Nashville, let alone go to RomCom, but man I want to go badly. Let's see if I can make it happen, lol.
Congratulations!! Hope you make it to RomCon-- I'll be there, too!!!

I know you'll be there ;) That's my motivation for wanting to go, lol.
