Links of Interests, Tidbits & More - 8/18/09

Author News:

  • Chloe Neill has posted a sneak peak of Friday Night Bites.
  • Noteable New Releases Today:

Interesting Tidbits:
  • Book Love Affair has the scoop on the Mercy Thompson series going to the movies!
  • BSC Reviews asks Anne Rice about Robert Downey, Jr. as a possible choice to play Lestat. -- Personally, I don't see it. I know I didn't feel good about Tom Cruise getting the role for Interview with the Vampire and he turned out alright for it. But there is one major difference, it's the age factor. Lestat was in his 20's wasn't he?
  • Check out this video a new vampire movie Suck coming soon. The cast: Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, Henry Rollins, Henry Rollins, Dave Foley, Dimitri Coats, Rob Stefaniuk, Jessica Paré. It looks like it might be good in cheesy sorta way.
