Calling All Ameriminions!




What's this, you ask? A brand new Tom Percival cover for Book One? But why? Whatever could be going on?

Well, my loyal and grinning Minions, it's because of the response we've been getting from our American readers that we've decided to have another go in the States. You've all been spreading the word to such an astonishing degree that we figured we'd help you along by re-releasing the first trilogy in eBook format, all with brand new covers. In fact, to FURTHER aid you in your recruiting endeavours, the first book is FREE to download for the entire month of October. 

Because you're awesome. And so am I. 

To see what's happening, just go to www.skulduggerypleasant.com/promo/index.html.

But hark! The news doesn't end there. We're also about to run a first-of-its-kind competition for my American Minions (Ameriminions?), and my American Minions ONLY. Let's face it, the poor dears have to go through an awful lot to keep up with Skulduggery, so they deserve a bit of special treatment every now and then...!

What does the winner get, you ask? Oh, nothin' much... just the brain-melting honour of a special Halloween short story being set in their home state, starring (and I know you've been missing her) Tanith Low, to be released free in time for October 31st.

And what KIND of competition is it, you're asking now? Why, it's the kind of competition in which you write the first line of the story, and I continue on from there. Simples! So it's up to you, my Ameriminions. It can be as spooky, as crazy, as scary, as funny, as weird or as atmospheric as you like. I've read all your posts, and so I like to think that I know each of you just a little bit, and I know for a fact that you're all, y'know, just a tad... UNUSUAL. Ahem. Oh, and naturally I'll need your permission to actually USE your first line, so at the start of every entry could you all write "I hereby give my Golden God, Derek Landy, full permission to take this line and incorporate it into his wonderful, wonderful story." 

And you had BETTER put that at the start of your entry, because if I find the PERFECT opening line that lends itself so much to a weird and spooky story, and then I realise that you didn't give me your permission to use it...? Why, I'd just have to hunt you down and kill you with a spoon. 

And this is all thanks to the reactions we've been getting from the Ameriminions, so thank you Kallista, Skyril and Mar Chu, and Skulgirl13 (A.K.A Deryn Mellifluous), and Saoirse Equus, and of course Thor, and Thalia, and Ann Marie, and Vivianna Spark, and not forgetting Alana Core, Jugglingpaynes, Laura, Valkyrie V., ToriSkulduggery Skellington, or even Gwaila, Pandora Wakeshima, Ophelia, nights.raven, Arabella Valkyrie PleasantSparrow, Nicole, annaslanski, Naomi Wiflath, MooGirl XD, Bella Votolato/Valkyrie Cain, mmodrall, Artemis Shakora, Ven Curor, Minnie, Lois Lane, Another Individual, Deila, Thornton, legolas3, Anya, Captain Zombie, Lauren Longbottom, Idlewind, Hanna, Gwyneth Noire, Funk Tuba, Docktor,  Dantea William, Cat, Bekka, and last but not least- Andrew. 

Did I miss anyone? I bet I did. Dammit.

RULES:

You MUST give me your permission at the start of your entry! 

There is no limit on word count- it can be as long as you like, or as short, cutting and snappy as you like. But it must ONLY be one line! 

Competition closes on October 23rd. The winner will be announced soon after on this Blog. 

With your entry, please include your home State, not your town. Your State is all I need.

Each person is limited to FIVE entries each.

The short story, once it's finished, will be available to everyone, all around the world. Yippee! (Ahem.)



Anyway! That is the first of our Americaland competitions, and the second will be unveiled next week, with all sorts of goodies up for grabs. But for right now, for THIS competition, all I have to say to my Ameriminions is good luck, and don't be afraid to be different. Embrace your inner lunatic. Fun times guaranteed.

Yes First!

Octa said...

Ok. I've read the post.

So happy for you guys!

Does visiting Colorado for a week and a future 3 day trip to Washington D.C count as being American?

Min (Thalia) said...

YES DEREK I LOVE YOU FOREVER!

*hugs for eternity*

I'm so glad you're giving America another go! Hopefully we can get all the rest of the books published here one day!

The competition sounds awesome. I'll write my line in my next post.

Venice Rain said...

3rddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd


10pm GMT, and the brits comment first ;)

Octa said...

Ah well. I'm going to come up with a line anyway even though I'm English.

So you can't use it Derek...

but it sounds fun and I want to try.

Venice Rain said...

*suddenly has a gazillion ideas* bugger.

Octa said...

I know...

*ideas explode messily out of Octa's head*

Venice Rain said...

OH HAI THALIA!

I do not like Ven Curor.

just because A) I am Ven
B) Curor is a character in my book. In the one part I have posted
I am very suspicious of this person *glares*

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Zombie Queen and Thief in Black said...

*EPIC SCREAM ECHOS THOUGH OUT THE WORLD*

DEREK DEREK DEREK DEREK DEREK!!!!!
THE COVER IS BEAUTIFUL! IT'S EPICA!
*hugs both Derek and Tom*
THANK YOU SO MUCH! I'M SO EXCITED!


YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!
*dashes amdly around trying to come up wit somethign unique*

Octa said...

Arrrgh. I wasn't around for the character competiton and this one is for Americans only.

When will I have a chance to enter a Golden God awesome competition of amazingness?

Min (Thalia) said...

I hereby give my Golden God, Derek Landy, full permission to take this line and incorporate it into his wonderful, wonderful story. And this is said line:

A spider drifted down from the ceiling of the old, decaying house, landing perfectly on Tanith’s nose.

Venice Rain said...

wait.

Derek reads all of our comments?!

*blushes so hard that she must be a Weasley*

THATS SO BRILLIANTEPICASWEET!

Min (Thalia) said...

This line is because:

A) I hate spiders and love Tanith, therefore I'm curious to see what would happen if one landed on her nose

And Q) Old, decaying houses are my favorite kind.

I know that there are tons more American who are way more creative than I am, so I probably won't win, but this is fun nonetheless!

Daniela S. said...

Oh WOW this cover looks totally awesome :D

Will your other non-American minions be able to read the short story too?
I hope so! I miss Tanith so badly >.<

Octa said...

You never knew Derek reads all our comments?

Well yes he does! He is a Golden God after all.

Nicole Cerundolo said...

HELLO EVERYONE! HI I'M BACK!!!

Venice Rain said...

hm.... just because I won't sleep other wise.


It was a col, dark night in Dallas town... All right, it was early evening, rather warm for the time of year, and Dallas IS technically a city. But nothing bad ever happens on a warm sunny evening...






Dallas - the city that everyone american I know IRL comes from. (at least 3 teachers, and my little sis had an exchange trip there...) OOOOH, and the capital of Texas! *dirty look* moar Tanith means more Billy-Ray plz?

amelie espirt ____the gummy bear assasin for the straight jacket said...

Octa said...

Hmm.... how will Derek know if non Americans pretend to be Americans and send in entries?

*shifty glance*

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Zombie Queen and Thief in Black said...

Nicole Cerundolo said...

Venice Rain said...

Just a point... *rubber stamps 'team China' on peoples clothing/skin/pets*


Tanith Low = DO NOT WANT.

I honestly do think Mr Landy does not like the Brits... *shifty look* First Tanith, then Fletcher, and now even the head of the British Sanctuary irritate me!



ahh well, the other charachters are all brilliant anyway ^^

Nicole Cerundolo said...

Well just because I want to here is my line which you cannot use...

Still emitting the sparkling blue rays,the ancient satellite was whisked deep into the past, a deathly star, plummeting back through history.

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Zombie Queen and Thief in Black said...

Ehem. Sorry, that's what I do in school when I have a question and the teacher hasn't called on me even though I've been raising my hand for about five minutes. Anyway....

I hereby give my Golden God, Derek Landy, full permission to take this line and incorporate it into his wonderful, wonderful story.

It was a bright, sun-shiny, warm day, which would have been lo9vely if it weren't for the fact that she had ten bodies to deal with and they were beginning to stink.

Gepard Valk said...

Well, as it says, it is only for Americans.

amelie espirt ____the gummy bear assasin for the straight jacket said...

And that's when Tanith knew, she knew that the Remnant had taken over.

Ok, I think they call this laughing and crying with joy!
Thank you, Master Derek!! Thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaank you!!!!!
~hugs~
[And you remembered me, cheers!]
Oh, just so you know, though, for future reference, you did miss Leona Raine and Mirtil Lucifer; however, they don't come on much ~eyeballs them~ So I understand your slight mishap.

Still, yes, you are most definitely brilliant :D

Ok, sentence, sentence. Somehow I doubt mine will be chosen. STILL, I doubt I'll win that drawing for free gas for a year for my nonexistant car, but that didn't stop me from entering the drawing, now did it?


Okie-doke then,

It appeared to be another simple mannequin displaying a rather articulate mask of horror; however, that wasn't the truth.

By the way Derek, just got to the twist, and may I say, without any offense meant (Okay, maybe a little offense) : How dare you! How dare you do this! But also, thank you so much for doing this! I would LOVE to say I saw it coming, but I didn't. You sir, are a very clever man.

State: LOUISIANA


1
"Still," Tanith Low muttered, "I don't think that gives Dracula any right to be flouncing around and drinking the blood of civilians in Louisiana."


2
It appeared to be another simple mannequin displaying a rather articulate mask of horror; however, that wasn't the case.


3
"Witches and warlocks are lovely, but I really do enjoy a nice ceiling walking ninja with a sword."


4
Oh, she always did love a good murder.

Tanith Low stood on the ceiling with a quirky grin on her face at the thought of the leg she was about to pull.

It HAS been ages. I've updated my own blog, finally.

*hands Skyril a blueberry muffin*

lego said...

Hi skyril! *hugs*

Nicole Cerundolo said...

Check out my sentences above! Which one's your favorite? I love yours about the ninja. ;D

Anthony said...

I just had a heart attack. My username was mentioned in the blog.

Here I am, happily reading along and I come across my username. Being the freak I am, I jumped, smashing my head against the wall and managing to throw my poor laptop half across the room as I did so. I'm so smooth...

Anyway, before my close brush with death,I also squealed (in a very undignified manner, mind you). Short story?! About Tanith?! IN THE STATES?! I'm having a seizure as I type.

I /WAS/ going to go do homework, but now all I can think about are those beginning lines. How would I start a story about Tanith Low in the US? In just one sentence? A grave challenge indeed...

But none the less, I will do it! Huzzah! But later. I have to think up something so clever and brilliant that love with gush out of my ears while I write it for you.

I'm going to write 100 starters. Then pick my favorite 5. So... I'll get baco to you on that.

Oh, and your guy's starters rule~ <3 I'm going to have to try and keep up.
