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!

  What a way to start the day...
Well, I just lost my complete blog. Vanished into the either. I've been saving, too, so I don't know WTF happened. I just hope this isn't indicative of what the rest of my day is going to be like.

Anyway, the original title for this post was going to be An Exciting Week in the Life of a Writer. But I realized that sounded like I was being critical and getting and staying published are two of the best things that have ever happened to me.

But there are weeks, like the ten days ahead of me, when I have to do less writing and more of the promo stuff. I'm not good at it. My stomach gets tied up in knots.

Here's what I have in store:

Denver ComicCon

Denver is hosting its first ever Comic Con June 15 - 17 at the Convention Center downtown. They've lined up a pretty impressive list of guests including my favorite, James Marsters. I have a small part to play, too. Here is my schedule:

Local Author Spotlight  Hyatt  Room 3
New Horror and Urban Fantasy Lit   C104 
Strong Woman Writers and Characters in SF and Urban Fantasy -  Capitol 2
SAT 4 PM   Hyatt Room 2

Paranormal Outer Limits 

Since I haven't seen a program yet with panel descriptions, I can only guess from the titles what we'll be talking about. Friday night I think I'll be reading from Haunted, the next AS book out on August 28.

                                                          San Diego - Mon - Thurs 

Then it's off to San Diego for four days to meet with my collaborator, Samantha Sommersby, on our new series. We plan to polish off the first book (which I assume will be out sometime early next year) and plot out the second. It will be four days of work. Maybe a little play. But mostly work.

Rom Con

When I get back, it's time for another Denver Con, Rom Con. Here's my schedule for that one:

Paranormal Slayers at 2:40 on Friday

Speed Date at 11:20 on Saturday

Paranormal Chat 1:30 on Saturday

Intimate Chat at 2:40 on Saturday 

Book signing Saturday night at 8:00 p.m.

Full and busy weekend.

In  between all this, I'm finishing off the ninth Anna Strong book, judging entries for the Colorado Gold Writing Conference and planning the book signing schedule for Haunted.

I have the first lined up, btw....mark your calendars...August 28, TC Highlands Ranch. First day you can get the book in your hot little hands.

I do want to return to the normal blog things I use to talk about, though. Hopefully, by the middle of July I can concentrate more on media stuff and less on what's going on with me.  Which I realize isn't nearly as interesting as a sexy picture of James Marsters.

Yay!! So excited :)
Hopefully I will get a chance to attend one of the panels and see you.
If you do, come up and say hello!!

Now that I know your schedule, expect to be heckled!
Post some incriminating photos of you and Spike, er, James Marsters. Even if you have to photoshop them.
Oh, catfriend, would that I could!! But I do plan to stalk--er--check out his appearances!

Mario-- I don't know you're complete schedule. How about posting it...just for general information!!
Where's the grammar nazi's when I need them... YOUR schedule, YOUR schedule. Okay, I've got it now.
Whoops - sorry I'm late.

"Where are" - subject/verb agreement.

"the grammar Nazis" - Generally capitalize 'Nazi', plural does not take an apostrophe.

Stick around MacAuslander-- obviously I need you!!
