NOT a gift wrapping station

Had my first signing for Howling Legion the other night. Borders always treats me pretty well. Plenty of copies of the books and a prime seat right by the front door. Of course, once the holidays get closer, I try to migrate away from that part of the store since people will just want me to slap a bow on a recent purchase. Of course I do, but then I sign it...whatever it is.

The turnout wasn't too bad. A good portion of the Nevermore folks showed up, so that was very cool. Also saw some new faces that wound up getting The Talk from me where I bend their ear until they buy a book so they can escape. Heh. Seriously, my heartfelt thanks to everyone who came. To all of those who couldn't make it, if you want a signed copy of Books 1 or 2, there's a few left at that Borders (Omaha - 132nd & Maple).

This just leaves the signing in St. Louis. The last time I did one over there was for my first western. That was rough. It's not a bad thing because that means, barring any 2012 sort of apocalypse, this one couldn't be any worse.

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.
