The Good, the Bad and the Snotty

Time for scratchy throat / cough / headache season. Yippee. Let's weigh some of the pros and cons as far as hacking up bloody mucus every few minutes is concerned.

Pro - I get to take all kinds of medicines, some of which make me feel delightfully dizzy.
Con- All those meds combine deep within my digestive plumbing to form a noxious stew.
Pro - That stew tastes like honey and cherry
Con - I'm allergic to cherries
Pro - No, I'm not.

Con - My appetite is going down.
Pro - That's got to be good for me on some dietary level, right?
Con - Not really

Pro - I don't get funny looks for being in my pajamas and robe at 7pm.
Con - The robe has dried soup on the labels and crusty sleeves.

Pro - I get a little more time to blog
Con - The blog posts turn out like this one.

Back to bed.

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.
