Friend Get Friend

First of all, my Ameriminions seem to be having a great time coming up with their opening lines, and I have to say the standard has been superb. There's still ages left to go, of course- the deadline is October 23rd- so keep submitting them in the comment section to the last post. It's all been very impressive so far- some real writers out there, and every few hours I have a new favourite... SO KEEP SUBMITTING!

Of course, I did promise a SECOND competition, now didn't I? Basically, your Golden God needs your Miniony help to spread the Skulduggery word around the world during this, the most fun of all months. This is what we're calling our "Friend Get Friend" competition, and it's all to do with social media. I honestly understand only about half of what I'm about to say, so please bear with me. The winners will receive a set of the Skulduggery books- UK editions- all signed by moi, and you'll each get a signed poster with your favourite quote scrawled across it. I'm not sure yet WHICH of the amazing Skulduggery poster you'll be getting, because it all depends on which ones I can find in my house (yes, that does mean these posters are from my own personal collection.)

Here are the things you need to do to be in with a chance of winning:

If you have a Facebook page, you could change your profile pic to the new Tom Percival US cover, then post a link on your Facebook wall to the eBook here http://bit.ly/qNJYCP

If you're on Twitter, you could tweet (I'm sorry, I'll never be able to take this word seriously) a message out using the following hashtag- #FREESkulduggeryebookUS . It can be about anything connected to the free eBook offer but it must contain a link to the page http://bit.ly/qNJYCP and a request to re-tweet your tweet. Good God. Tweeting, retweeting, hashtags... Does ANYONE understand what the hell I'm talking about?

If you have a different online profile- like MSN, YouTube, Blog, Tumblr, etc- then you could post a status update which includes the cover and the link http://bit.ly/qNJYCP ...

Now, if you do ANY of those things, you MUST tell me in the Comments section to THIS post. Tell me EXACTLY what you've done and you'll be automatically entered into the competition. The closing date is October 31st, the competition is open to EVERYONE in EVERY country (yep, that includes you Ameriminions), and 10 winners will be selected at random by me. 

Ready? Set? GO.

Derek Landy said...

Trinity- that's not at all what it means! Every time I look through the entries I have a new favourite, but it could just as easily be an entry I re-read and am now loving than a brand new one...!

Okay, now I'm gonna go visit my nieces.

Dragona Pine said...

Transformers is a good film ^^ I prefer the second one, though. Haven't seen the third YET.

Marine, the post before this is for the Ameriminion competition, this ANYONE can enter, no matter what country you come from.

Moira Darke said...

Naw, it's not the country thing, it's that my mum doesn't want me doing stuff like this.

Ayrminas said...

*Rips up Azzy's essay*

Now is Azzy Darquesse going to come out?

azzy98 said...

azzy98 said...

"sniffs" stop bullying me!!!

Dragona Pine said...

Watch the big robot at the end, Devastator, it's called. The one that climbs a pyramid, and then look when Simmons is climbing up the pyramid after it, he says, "I am directly beneath the enemies scrotum!" and it has demolition balls XD

Aquila Felis said...

Lol Inc. said...

Hello. For what help it is I've promoted Skulduggery Pleasant on our Blog; http://jcdragon14.blogspot.com/ on the same post as a few educational things about Microraptors. Chances of anyone reading this comment; none. Chances of anyone reading my Blog? None. Actually, once someone commented. Just once. Maybe my minions are quiet. But anyhow, I won't win this competition, but I might as well spread the word of the Skul-Man!
-Dark Dragon from Lol.inc

Lol Inc. said...

P.S I wasn't being forlorn and self pitying in my comment! I was just stating facts!
Spreading the word of Skul Man onto an empty Blog seems a bit stupid, but hey, I did it anyhow. =D

Ayesha said...

I have posted the link as my hotmail status and changed my pic to the new cover made by Tom percival!!!

ViennaJarred said...

Do we have to link what we've done to spread the word? :S (My original comment's up there ^ somewhere)
Here's my Facebook:
And Blog:
And Lol Inc., no-one ever reads my blog either! It's more like an online journal for me.

Kribu said...

Do posts made a few days ago count? Because I was a bit too eager to spread the word right around the time of the last post...

...in case they do, I posted about the free first book in the US (with store links) in a general update post on my personal LiveJournal here: http://kribu.livejournal.com/228185.html

...and on a LiveJournal community here: http://skulduggerylove.livejournal.com/8879.html

Georgina Howlett said...

HIYA DEREK! IT'S YOU-KNOW-WHO (Georgina Howlett, of course! C:)

Now, you may be thinking that I do not need any more SP books (you saw first-hand my collection, teehee) HOWEVER! I am an Admin of the Skul-Man Comics page (it is a Facebook page, if you did not know, about the wonderful Skulduggery Pleasant comics which Emily Good draws. You should check them out on deviantART. :3) and with your permission, and if I won this competition, I could run a competition on that page with these signed books as a prize. I would feel so nice doing that! :D


Facebook - Changed my profile picture to the new American SP cover you showed us in your last blog entry, put the link as my status & as the description of that picture.

YouTube - Broadcasted the link given & changed my display picture to the new cover. I did this on two of my channels (BleachAnime2010 & BookAddict2011)

MSN - Set my status as the link & attached the picture. :)


I hope that you may at least not rule me out as a winner immediately. XDDD

Catch you later, Derekz! :D

P.S. Your wedding is in 12 days. GET READY. Bring out your dusty tuxedo & smart shoes. :P

The Wannabe-Author said...

I have never been here in time to get on the first page before!!!!!!!! IM SO HAPPY!!!!!!

But I can't do the contest... :(
I don't do "social". Besides, It's confusing. I guess I don't really do "media" either, which is unfortunate for my media teachers. Nawell...

Yes, Derek, there is a strange little teen out there who doesn't get any of this just as much as you do. (My latest phone was bought, and I quote: "Because it's a SQUARE!!! OMG!)


halfcelestialelf said...

Dear Derek,
As to following the instructions in your post I have done the following things. First I tweeted the following message on my twitter
“#FREESkulduggeryebookUS download the "Skulduggery Pleasant" eBook for free at bit.ly/qNJYCP Please could you retweet this message :)”
I then downloaded and saved the new image of the front cover of skulduggery pleasant and set it as my profile picture on facebook, I must say that I much prefer this to the old American covers and it looks very nice. Afterwards I then set the following message as my facebook status
“Guys so you know there is a free download of the ebook on now at bit.ly/qNJYCP

please pass the message on”
I then set the aforementioned picture and stutus as my picture and ststus on “Windows Live Messanger” (MSN) afterwards I sent a youtube bulliten out that contained the following message
“Guys so you know there is a free download of the "skulduggery pleasant" ebook on now at bit.ly/qNJYCP”
But I was unable to change my profile picture on youtube because I couldn’t remember how to :/
Many thanks
Matthew Gibson

P.S hey Georgina :) thanks for the quiz the other day

I can't wait to laugh at cute videos promoting skulduggery. This evil plot is genious. Get the fans to spread the word and create more fans, making more profits and loadsa dosh and all they get in return is the possibility of a poster you don't even have to pay for and a few signed books. I'd love these things, but I'm not willing to change my identity online just for the slight possibility of gaining them. I would also love to spread the word, but no one likes me. Sorry Derek, but I'm only going to parttake in this competition by laughing and smirking quietly, while burrowing my nose in a skulduggery book and enjoying your brilliant work.

And I don't care who i just insulted. XD

Liam Glynn said...

I Just Made a Blogger account,(Just to follow you!) made a Blog about it, Posted the link on my YT channel and put the link on my Facebook and changed my facebook profiler, my youtube pic and my blogger pic, i sent my american friend a copy of Skulduggery Pleasant 1 for her birthday! I cant think of anything else to do and, if you read this, i also sent you a fan fiction when you were in Blanchardstown and you complained because my copy of it was coloured and yours wasnt? Bet you still hold a grudge against me Lol oh yes and if you still have that fanfic, can you try tell me what you thought of it? It was the one with Darymple in it and it was called Revenge and my name is on the end of it :) Hope you can see this comment :D I'd really like to win :D

Hello Derek...I changed my library Facebook profile picture, posted the link on my page, let everyone know how fantastic the series is, and how wonderful you are, and that they can download book 1 for free during October! And I seem to be getting the message across...I know I already got 4 downloads for you (5 including myself)! Three cheers for librarians!!!

The Wannabe-Author said...

And yet you won't talk to me. Oh, terrific.

Shade O'Killer said...

I posted on my Tumblr that there is a free eBook download, Along with a message the this is the best book series.

I posted on my Twitter the hashtag and link, along with the encouragement to RT

I changed my Facebook profile pic to the new cover and posted that the best book series I have read is doing a free eBook download and to spread the word.

I also tell anyone who will listen that this is an amazing series.

If I were to win, I would then possess all of the books in the Skulduggery Pleasant series, UK edition and signed to boot, as well as an amazing poster from his personal collection, and would die a fulfilled life. If I were to lose, I would go on a murderous rampage with a spoon. So great is my love for this book series.

Oh, and a linky-dink to my profile (if, for some reason, the golden god himself would wish to see, and possibly comment, on my wall. This would also cause me to faint.):

Hey Darren, Just posted it on my FB account, by the way I just wanted to say that you have had a big effect on my life indirectly through your books, I have been reading a few different series but I always stop them to get your new books when they come out. Anyways your books have inspired me to try to become a young author and so I would just like to say thanks for making these books, they are so awsome and just yeah, carry on making more because this is probably the best I've read! So yeah, thanks for making these books and inspiring me to use my english talents to do something I can be proud of!
