No image available

I was putzing around on and found a listing for Skinners #1. The release date looms waaay in the distance (Nov. 25), but it's cool to actually see a hint of it out there in the real world. With all the editing, fussing and general anticipation surrounding this first book (At least in my head, anyway) it feels good to get a peek of it as something that will actually happen. This isn't my first thing to be published, but I seriously cannot wait to get it out there. The spot on Amazon didn't have a pic of the cover, no real description, and nothing but the bare facts and STILL it made me smile.

Ok...I may have done a quick lap around my desk, but that's it. Believe me, that's an image you DON'T want.

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, 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.
