Wonderful. I am now a part of the tribe.

I'm not usually a joiner. "Usually" doesn't even cover it. I can't honestly remember the last group I've joined unless it was required for some other job or to get a free magazine subscription. Then again, I don't normally run into groups like Nevermore Paranormal. I recently went on a ghost hunt with them as part of my research for Skinners, MEG and all that jazz. It's a subject that's always fascinated me, which is why I wrote about it and also why I wanted to do more than just read a few books for research. One thing fed into another very nicely until I managed to fall in with Nevermore.

The hunt at the Squirrel Cage Jail went so well that I wanted to see about joining the group as a real member and not just some tag along writer guy trying not to knock over any equipment. The group either thought I would make a good member of the team or they needed a goofy-looking mascot because I'm now a full-fledged member! I put a link to their site on the side of the page and I'll be sure to write about any cool experiences I have. So far, I've just been to a few meetings but I'm looking forward to diving in and getting to work. I don't want to look like the dopey new guy, so I'll refrain from making too many Ghostbusters references. Acting like such a dork so early would be bad.

How bad?

Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.
Ok...that's bad.

Ahhhhh....out of my system now. Feels better.

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.
