REAL announcements

I already caught flak for the last April Fool's post. Heh. Can't say as I blame you for that. Prank or not, the thought of softening up Skinners just don't sit right. Fear not. I'm still on the horror track where I belong and have no thoughts of straying.

As for some real announcements, I've been lining up some conventions. This summer, I'll be appearing at OSFest here in Omaha. There's Archon at the beginning of October and I'll also be going to this year's World Fantasy Con at the end of October. I need to contact the WFC folks to see about doing any panels and such, but I know I'll be attending one way or the other. The specifics will be at the top of my blog page. Hopefully I'll see some of you at one of these events. I'll also be lining up some more when I get the chance. And for those of you who can't attend, you can always hit me up for a signed cover for Book 3. Get 'em while they're hot. Well, they'll always be hot, but I may run out. Gotta stay confident, right?

UPDATE - Just heard back from the World Fantasy Con. Looks like they've got a slot open for me! See you in Columbus.

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.
