Here's one of the best parts about working at home. I get to decorate my desk with awesomeness like this Gears of war action figure and I don't have to explain it to anyone. Ok, so maybe I'm explaining it to you right now, but that's different. Lots of you probably already know who this is. For those of you who don't, you're missing out.

Gears of War is one of my favorite games in recent memory because it's got it all: monsters, cool ships, bad-ass cliche's, everything a growin' boy needs. Plus, the main guy is named Marcus. See? It's right there on the box. That makes it cool, right?

Whatever. It was meant to be on my desk because the eyes stare straight down at me when I'm working. If I stare too long at it, I hear the voices urging me to keep typing. KEEP TYPING!!


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.
