Summer SUCKS!!

So far this summer, it’s been warm and sometimes hot but still just summer. Then, all of a sudden, the earth cracks open and the skies start to boil and my car’s tires meld with the scalding pavement!

Ok, that may be a bit dramatic, but it’s gotten really freaking HOT!! I hate the summer anyway, but this has made me retreat into my house like a pecker on a cold day. Guys, you know what I mean. Even sitting in my office trying to work is a damn chore. You just can’t escape it. Has the earth gotten too close to the sun? I know there’s some science thing to that effect, but my brain is too scalded to come up with it.


Fine, I’ll stop whining about the weather. In other news, I’m plucking away at SKINNERS 2 and it’s coming along swimmingly. Mmmmmm. Swimming. You know what’s been keeping me typing through the late hours and holding my core temperature down to an acceptable level? Scooters iced lattes. More specifically, the peanut butter and chocolate espresso smoothie. I think that’s what it’s called. I know where it is on the menu. I’m rambling now.

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.
