Apart from the infomercials...

There are plenty of advantages for me in staying up late. I get my work done, my body stays on its natural nocturnal clock, plus I get to see the first snow of the season. Last night I went to bed and saw the white stuff falling down like the happy ending to some holiday movie. Since it's early October, I figured it would be gone by the the time the sun came up but it's still here. The neighbors are grinding their stubborn car engines, sliding around in the wrong shoes and trying to scrape their windows using credit cards. Ahhhh yes.

I love the cold. As an added bonus, it'll help dull the pain when I go to get stage 1 of my new tattoo done tomorrow. Everything hurts less in the cold right? Wait, no. It's the reverse. DAMN IT!!!! Even so... me = happy.

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.
