Laptop Days pt. 2

The misery continues. I got my computer back from the shop, paid for its release and virus removal, plugged it in and found all of the same snafus as before. ALL of them!! This is why I like console gaming. If the game don't work, somethin's broke. With a computer, it could be any one of a thousand different things. Part of the problem is that I'm not a computer expert. I do know to be careful, though, but that doesn't matter. None of my protection programs did anything and now I've got to fight with the people who were supposed to fix it. Sigh.

My laptop is hanging in there, but not everything is on it. Take, for example, all the music I've downloaded. Pictures, documents, my carefully tended collection of porn, all of it's on what is very likely a busted piece of machinery. I could transfer stuff to my laptop, but there's not enough memory. I need a new computer, plain and simple. Doesn't mean I have to like it.

Ok. Griping over. Better log off before my laptop melts.

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.
