Be My Minion!

(and get cool stuff)

Like the Greywalker series? Want to have a special place in my heart among the Greystalking horde? Then you want to be my minion—you know you do. I need minions to spread the word about my books (and who doesn’t want minions–Mwahahahaha?) and you need cool minion-only stuff.

And now you’re saying to yourself “How can I get to be a special Greystalking minion?” Here’s how: Write a short essay about why you’d like to be my minion. Include your name, email address, and complete postal address (human US residents only—sorry, my non-US fans.) Send it to me via email (kat[dot]rchrdsn[at]gmail[dot]com) by 12:01 AM Pacific Daylight time on June 16 2011.  If I pick your essay you’ll receive a special box of “Greystalker” stuff:

  1. A limited edition “Greystalker” t-shirt (for this year’s minions only)

    Greystalker's T-shirt front 2011

    Greystalker's T-shirt back 2011

  2. A “lending copy” of Greywalker #1 to lend to friends and potential new Greystalkers (with a personal inscription/bookplate to remind your friends who they borrowed the book from)

  3. Bookmarks, postcards, and other promotional materials to give away (or horde for yourself)
  4. And a personalized, signed copy of the newest Greywalker book, DOWNPOUR

    Downpour Final

  5. Plus other special Greywalker offers and materials throughout the year.

Only 20 minions will be chosen this year and your t-shirt design will be unique to 2011 minions (and select publishing associates and family) only. When more minions join the Greystalking horde, they will receive a new t-shirt design so yours will always be a special limited edition. Potential minions must get their essays and information in to me by 12:01 AM Pacific Daylight time. Winners will be announced on my website and in the forum on Saturday June 25 2011. Your boxes of Greystalker stuff will be sent out in July so you’ll have all your fun and nifty things before the US release of DOWNPOUR.

Want to know what the t-shirt looks like? Imagine a nice black t-shirt; the front image is a 6″ logo on the right side of your chest; the back image is 12″ x 14″ centered. It’s very nice.

Minion discussions will be hosted in the Greywalker forum at Critical Of course you don’t have to be a minion to be a member of the forum, so come on by and join the Greystalking horde!

    I know I am going to sound whiny and to be honest I feel a little whiny (and incredibly jealous) but why do us outside the US not get a shot at this? I would be willing to pay any postage involved if that is the issue and I was lucky enough to be chosen.

    Rae 😦

  2. Cyndy Otty says:

    Possibly, this is the coolest contest ever. I’m just sayin’.

  3. Rae: I’m trying to figure out a way to do something with the UK, too. It’s not just my shipping out, it’s getting the books for the UK and coordinating the distribution end. I’ll keep working on it though.

    Cyndy: Thank you. I’m pleased that you approve. 🙂

  4. Rae says:

    Kat, I know you will do what you can and I apologise for being whiny, but with the announcement that we won’t be getting the later books in the series directly to the UK I’m feeling a bit sidelined which, I guess is silly as it really is a very small world and it is not that much more hassle to order books from the US.
    I know you will do something if you can and thank you VERY MUCH for that. Not every author would bother.


  5. My UK fans have been disproportionately good to me, so I’ll figure something out. Never fear, Rae.

    Awesome giveaway…essay sent.

  7. Carolyn says:

    I’m super stoked about this! I already tell all my friends about your books. You are awesome!

  8. Thank you both. I’m looking forward to it.
