Let's do this!!

Vacation is over.
I didn't do quite as much slacking as I'd planned, but it was nice.
Time to take a deep breath and dive in to Skinners #3.
Actually, it's good to finally start in on this because it's been rattling around in my noggin for well over two years. The closer I got to this day, the clearer the picture became. Now that I'm finally going to start writing it, I'm excited and nervous. Excited to do some things, introduce some characters and revisit some others that I've had to put aside. Nervous about getting it right. There are little bits and pieces I've been saving as well as some major things I've been looking forward to doing. Now, it's time to put all of it into motion.

There really aren't a lot of specifics I can write about here because Book 2 isn't even out yet and I don't want to spoil anything. And so...without further ado...I will start typing Book 3.

It's really not this big of a production, but writers get to shuffle their feet just like everyone else. Ok! Enough stalling. I'm ready to go!

Ok, now I'll go.

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.
