Bits and Bites

Lots of news and info today, but first, something fun...

Have you heard of Wordle?  You can enter your blog or website URL and Wordle makes it into artwork using the frequently used words from your site.  Fun! is offering a free copy of The Dancing Dead (vampire poetry) along with each copy of Nicole Hadaway's vamp romance RELEASE purchased for the low price of 4.99 British Pounds.  For more info on Nicole's book visit her website.

If you like the online BLEEDER series, they now have a FaceBook page.  Also on October 3rd, a vampire-themed costume party/fundraiser for BLEEDER will be held in a creepy warehouse in Philadelphia.  Check the FaceBook page for info.  Episode 2 of the series should be available online by the end of November.

Don't forget the Vampire Film Festival in New Orleans October 23rd.  Details at

Two of my favorite things, the French and vampires, are combined in this November DVD release, Vampire Party.
When the French make a horror/gore comedy, you know things are going to get extremely rude! Best friends and hardcore partiers Sam, Alice and Prune have scored invitations to Medici Night , the legendary VIP bash held every year at a remote castle. But when they discover that this wild party is being thrown by an elite race of blood-crazed vampires, they ll have to stake, stab, slice, bludgeon and blast their way out of a soiree where the hosts are thirsty and the bar is now open. Is it in bad taste to massacre a horde of undead guests even if they are a total pain in the neck? Tchéky Karyo of BAD BOYS fame stars in this sex, blood and rock & roll blowout featuring music by Eagles Of Death Metal, Goldfrapp, The Magic Numbers, Benjamin Diamond, Scratch Massive, Ghostcat and more.

MTV will continue testing multi-platform show distribution this week when it debuts a short-form limited series,Valemont, on MTV, and Verizon Wireless's V Cast mobile platform. 

For six weeks beginning Sept. 29, a two-and-a-half-minute episode from the series - which follows a high school girl looking for clues about her brother's mysterious disappearance from the prestigious Valemont College - will appear ahead of The Hills and after The City. After the first 12 episodes run on MTV, the remaining 23 Valemont episodes will premiere weekly on and series sponsor Verizon Wireless's V Cast. 

Just a reminder that Bite Club is currently reading THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF VAMPIRE ROMANCE 2.  If you're reading it, stop by and become a Bite Club minion!

I'm not creative when it comes to cooking, but these cookies look too adorable.  Make some for your Halloween Party!  Click here for recipe.

Hi Michele :)
Thanks for the great post.
Those cookies look like they can bite back.
Lots of great vampire news.
I hope that the movie does justice to the Cirque novels.
All the best,

Wordle is fun - try it with one of your WIPs!

Vampire Party reminds me of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Let's do the time warp again !!!
