Okay, about to get in the car and drive to Kildare for my event with Alex Barclay, but I was checking my emails and wandered onto the Facebook site and saw this...
I hope Karina Hauge doesn't mind me posting her picture here. I just thought...
A signed book to the first Minion who gets Skulduggery tattooed on their FACE!
And since posting this I've received one or two messages from young and impressionable Minions who are saving up to do just that...
Don't! It was a JOKE!
Getting a tattoo is a decision that stays with you YOUR ENTIRE LIFE!
The last thing I want is to be in the middle of a signing somewhere and an angry mother hauls her son/daughter up to me and says "Look! Look at my daughter's face!"
I'll nod and smile politely, because I am a polite person, and I will say something along the lines of, "What a lovely young lady she is."
And then the mother will start shaking the poor girl. "She has. A tattoo. Of your character. ON HER FACE."
And I'll peer closer. "Is that what it is? I thought it was a freckle."
"It takes up her ENTIRE face!"
"I thought it was a big freckle. Are you going to sue me now?"
And that's when the ninjas attack.
I may be letting my imagination run a LITTLE bit wild, but you get the idea.
DO NOT GET ME SUED.
