Christopher Moore! Christopher Moore! Christophe…*faints*

I’m a little bit in adoration of Christopher Moore, I gotta tell you. We even have a six degrees of separation thing. My beautiful friend Jana, who lives in San Francisco, lived in an apartment underneath him. When I wrote and published TR, she was like, “I think the guy who used to live above me writes those kinda books. He’s nice. Name is Christopher Moore.” Needless to say I nearly had a heart attack, and had I not been living overseas I would have been ringing her doorbell a few hours later.

So I was very excited when a member of his marketing team got in touch with me the other day. Undoubtedly drawn to my site by my repeated use of “heinous fuckery” and “fuckstockings” in my blog post praising The Fool, she offered me not only a copy of Moore’s newest book, Bite Me: A Love Story, for review, but also TWO COPIES TO GIVE AWAY.

To you, my lovely friends and fans.

Here’s the 411 on the book and on Christopher:

BITE ME: A Love Story is an inventive, hysterically funny, sophisticated comic horror novel with flamboyantly original (and endearing) characters, pitch-perfect postmodern dialogue, break-neck pacing, and utterly entertaining vignettes.  BITE ME readers have a lot to sink their teeth into.

About Christopher Moore

Christopher Moore is the author of eleven previous novels: Practical Demonkeeping, Coyote Blue, Bloodsucking Fiends, Island of the Sequined Love Nun, The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove, Lamb, Fluke, The Stupidest Angel, A Dirty Job, You Suck, and Fool. He lives in San Francisco.

Could I be more excited to read this book? Not if it promised to make out with me. Okay, then I might be a little more excited. I do enjoy a good make out.

I’m afraid that, because they’re shipping the books directly, they have limited the contest to US residents only. So if you live in the US and want to enter, comment below on the following issue:

Who would you most like to see do a guest post or blog at my site, and what would you want them to talk about? And don’t limit yourself to what you think could possibly happen . . . The Emporium is for fantasy, after all. 😉

The Contest Can will randomly pick two winners next TUESDAY. YAY!

  1. Jennifer Rardin, I love her books and her posts on Facebook. She is a hoot. I actually got to meet her at a book signing with our book club. She is just as funny in person. As far as what to talk about….books of course. What are the plans on the Jaz Parks series (and of course Vayl)!!

  2. Hmmm… good questions. I suppose picking you would be redundant. How about Denise Robbins. You two would be very funny together. I also enjoy when book characters make appearances on blogs. Perhaps a debate between two rival characters from different books and different authors. Otherwise a unicorn 🙂

  3. I loves me some Christopher Moore, he's one of the main reasons I started writing in the first place (and not in a vague his books are keen kind of way, I'm talking actual encouragement). He was up here not too long ago and I even got a Bite Me tee shirt at the reading (which I MIGHT let you wear when you are up here to do your reading, if you are really nice to me, because we're cool like that).

    And here you are getting books from him and all that. You are indeed all that and a bag of chips.

    As far as who would be fun to see guest blog, I'm still in a seasonal Hanamatsuri mood after watching The Buddha on PBS last night (Hanamatsuri is like Easter because it's nowish, except it celebrates the birth of the Buddha so it's more like Christmas, except without the presents, because of the whole not getting so attached to things philosophy). I'd like to see the Dalai Lama guest blog. Seeing as how Christopher Moore is Buddhist, he could join in and they could have a discussion about Buddhism in Dark Comedy/Urban Fantasy.

    Seeing as how I'm not published yet or anything, I guess that discussion would mostly be about Christopher Moore, since I can't think of any other Buddhist Dark Comedy genre writers (even though Moore is on the lit fiction shelves, he writes funny books about monsters. He's a Fantasy writer even if he has avoided living in the Fantasy ghetto).

  4. I would LOVE to see interviews between characters as Jane and maybe Felix from Mario's books, or Jane and any of the characters from League members books. Man, I just love character interviews! Yeah, I'm a dork like that.

  5. Guest blogs?

    Well there are a few I can think of…

    Cindy Pon. She could talk about the jump from YA to UF or regular Fantasy – or on if the market is ready to see more cultural plots/characters in UF and Scifi.

    Felicia Day. Books and UF from a readers standpoint. Plus your readership would spike from the first tweet of the blog.

  6. After reading your post on Christopher Moore, he has definitely been on my radar.

    I think there should be a mystery solving round table like with Jane, the Scooby Doo Gang, Sabina Kane. I was thinking throwing Amanda Ferral in there as well, but I don't think the Scoobies could handle her. 🙂

  7. Hmmm, you know I've read Mistwood and loved it but really not heard a whole lot about Leah Cypess online. I'd like to learn more about her. 🙂

  8. For guest blogs, Maybe all the recent debut authors in uf and pf that had books recently released or going to be released.

  9. Seeing as how I used the phrase "seeing as how" twice in a row, I should probably edit myself better before I post things, lol

  10. I'd love to see any of The League of Reluctant Adults guest blog, especially Jaye Wells who writes fantastic books.

  11. How about Thomas and Jody from the series. They could discuss the pros and cons of being a vampire couple. 🙂

  12. I would like to read a guest blog from jaye wells… and maybe it would lead to a verbal version of the The Shreveport Smackdown. Possibly with video blogs? One could only hope.

  13. Ooh I read the first two of his in this vampire series! I would love to win a copy of the next installment. It's a very interesting and humorous tale of vampires, those first 2.

  14. I would love to see you interviewing the Joker and Harlequin! =) Why are they bad? Why do they love torturing Batman so much <3 <3 <3 I luv 'em!

  15. I would love to see a guest post from either Charlaine Harris. After all, I think I had read something somewhere that said, "If you like the Sookie Stackhouse Novels, you'll love Jane True." I read that, was sold and picked up your book, and was definitely NOT disappointed.

    Oooh, or another fav would be Katie McAlister. Her paranormal books are sassy, hot-sexy and hilarious… She'd be awesome too!

  16. My daughter mentioned these books to me. Read the first one, might as well get the third one if we can! Count me in too!

  17. Argh! You are putting a hurt on my pocketbook with all these great recommendations, woman! It's like crack. I buy one and then it's a series and then I have to watch for new ones and then there's yet another recommendation and…

    I could, of course, quit any time I wanted to. *twitch*

    You know who I'd like to see a guest blog from? N.K Jemisin. Her debut novel, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, was ambitious and epic and blew me away. Her tone is more Tolkein than Urban Fantasy, but she also writes some freakin' awesome bisexual erotica. I suspect there may be some heinous fuckery lurking within, and where better to express it than here?

  18. I would like to see you and Jim Butcher talk UF characters/classes, because judging by his books he has a snarky sense of humor too. 🙂

    Also, I just finished Tempest today (while procrastinating on grading-I'm Yveva on twitter, who tries to get her cat's help on grades), and in reading the author comments in the back I noticed you mentioned Charles DeLint. He was the first Urban Fantasy author I read and loved and it would be interesting for him to comment/post/interview here about how the genre has grown and changed. 🙂

  19. If you ever wanted to have a blogging event about sex and the evil characters Addison Fox would make an excellent pick.

  20. Sarwat Chadda because I just read an interesting blog post of his about werewolves and feminism.

    I've heard good things about Chris Moore from my friend just this week; gotta love synchronicity.

  21. I think it would be amusing to see different members of the League interview each other. I know it sounds more likely to happen at the League, but it could happen here too.
