No longer just "Book 3"

Coming up with titles is always a little rough. Sometimes I can't think of anything that really pops right away. Other times, I think of something that I love but doesn't go over well with my editor. While I've heard some authors just let their editors decide the title completely, I'm fortunate enough to work with someone who truly works with me. Even if my first idea gets shot down, I have some say in the final choice.

Cutting to the point: The title for Skinners Book 3 is Teeth of Beasts.

My original choice was something else, but this was my first choice when I needed to come up with an alternate. I'm really happy with it and having a definite title makes it feel like the whole book is coming together. And since I'm in the thick of revisions, I can tell you the book really is coming together.

Skinners Book 3: Teeth of Beasts

I like it.

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.
