Wow....that was anitclimactic

Note to myself: Just because a book is supposed to be "in stores now", that doesn't mean it's in the store, unpacked from its box, put onto a cart, wheeled out to the sales floor, perused by employees and curious shoppers, rolled to the proper aisle and put onto the actual shelf.

Megan and I went to all our local bookstores to see Blood Blade on the shelves. We struck out. Yep. 0 for 5. Zippo. We asked for it at one Barnes & Noble and they had some in the back, but that's not the same. I'm not new to this, so I should have known better than to expect to see anything on day one. At least the trip wasn't a complete waste. Megan had a bunch of books that she wanted to get, which also came out today and we found them just fine.
Yeah. . .I'll try not to think too hard about that one.

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.
