The First Few Steps

Ok. It's fairly early in the process, but I'm chugging away at Book #1. As is the case with most writers, I already can't wait to see the final product. What will the cover look like? How will everyone like it? Who will play Cole in the movie? Maybe I'm jumping the gun a bit on that last one, but you get the point. The most positive sign for me is just how much I enjoy writing this book. Even when I'm away from my desk, I'm thinking about what to do in this one, what to do in the next ones, what to do even further down the road. There's so much room for me to play here.

But I can't get all wrapped up in that. There's work to do now and plenty of time for the rest later. My big concern is to make something people will hopefully read. Uh oh. Now I'm thinking about everything else again. Ugh. All right. Enough of this. Back to work.

This is what happens without editors

I'm Marcus Pelegrimas, author of the SKINNERS series. Here you'll find various ramblings about movies, video games, TV, and...oh yeah...those books I write. If there's anything you'd like to discuss, just let me know. I try to update whenever the mood strikes me, so feel free to leave comments. There may be some occasional foul language, but anyone who's too easily offended probably doesn't read my stuff anyway.

Free Stuff

Here's how it goes. As usual, I've got my truckload of promo covers from EOS Books. I'll be going to some conventions, so I hope to see you there and I'll gladly sign your books. If you can't make it to a con, just email me your name, address and any inscription so I can send you a signed cover.

BONUS ---> If you would be so kind as to write up a review for any or all Skinners books and publish it on a site like Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Borders, or any other major review site, I can send you something extra. I made up some bookmarks (which I'll sign) and I've even put together some Shimmy's VIP passes (which I'll also sign). Can't guarantee the passes will get you into a real strip club, but I think they look pretty cool. Send me a link to your review along with your name, address and inscription, and I'll get these out to you as well.
