Comic-Con International 2010 has been a busy and exciting time here at Shur’tugal.

We’ve put together all of the Twitter updates from the convention to make it easy for everyone to find without having to scroll through tons of updates.

10:30 AM PDT Day 2 Begins
3:00 PM “Bite Me” Panel begins.
Had a great time talking with Lauren Kate before her Bite Me panel. Quite the down to earth and friendly author!
Very fascinating panel on evolving urban fantasy beyond the vampire phenomenon! Lauren Kate’s books focus on angels, though fans of her books have drawn connections between the Fallen angels and the mythological vampires.
They are really drawing on the fact that vampires only recently took on the role as a romantic and a hero…though noted the reinvention.
“Do you prefer working with a monster that has a huge background already or a new monster with no background?” “Both!”
“If you’re writing in a specific genre, you cannot read in that genre while you’re writing” take notes, aspiring authors! (More at @itsshurty)
