Upcoming hunting

Only a week and a half until I go on another ghost hunt! This time, it's to a site that some of you may have heard about: Villisca, IA. There were some well-documented axe murders here and it's supposed to be a pretty active spot entity-wise. We're hoping there are still some spirits hanging around that would like to tell us all about it. The Nevermore bunch and I will be there, recorders in hand, doing our best to stir up some supernatural activity. After all the editing I've been doing, a little road trip along with some poking around in the dark will be just what I need. Sure, it may not be the same as what most folks would think about when I mention poking around in the dark, but it'll be a lot of fun. If we uncover any evidence, I'll be sure to let you know.

Another upcoming event that's in the works is an author panel at a local comic book shop. Not only that, but it's the shop I go to on a weekly basis. It's still in the planning stages, but that's another fun one I'd like to do. Hopefully I can say something constructive in the midst of being distracted by so many comic books, Star Wars collectibles and cool t-shirts.

That's about it for now. God of War 3 looms on the horizon. Skinners 3 arrives in stores next month. Good things are afoot!

PS - Another landmark occasion: This marks the first time I've used the word "afoot" on this blog. History in the making, folks.

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.
