The End, Love Marcus

I'm getting near the end of Skinners 4, which is always tricky for any book. There are many questions to answer such as should there be a huge fight? Should there be more of a subtle foreboding sort of thing? Should there be loose ends? How many loose ends? Should I leave the reader with questions? Unfortunately, the answer to a lot of these is...sorta.

It's all part of the process and the good news is that the process is chugging along. I'm really enjoying this book, but won't know how it all gels until I start the first round of edits. Plus, there are all the other things to do with life in general. Some of that stuff gets pretty daunting. As always, I will forge ahead. Skinners 3 comes out in a few months. Things are all just fine.


Sure. Whatever gets me through the day.

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.
