1 order of perspective...comin' up!

Ok, just when I get done bitching about my broken toy, I spend the night in my basement hoping a tornado doesn't blow me away. Whew. I've lived in Nebraska for some time, so I know the drill. I was even in Grand Island way back when the whole town was leveled. That doesn't mean it wears any less on the ol' nerves. Last night, tornadoes ripped through here and hit a Boy Scout camp pretty hard. There's flooding, fatalities, lost and damaged homes...the whole nine. Needless to say, my thoughts are with all of those who were hurt and I can't imagine what it would have been like to be in the middle of the really bad stuff.

There's really not a lot else to say about it. I feel damn lucky so far and hope the summer storms let up enough to give everyone around here a chance to clean up.

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.
