Winners and Release Dates

For those of you who don't know, we recently ran a writing competition on the Skulduggery website, where I supplied the first 50 words of a story and left it to others to come up with the next 450. The ten winners were supposed to be announced last week, but it took my publishers longer than expected to cope with the massive response... Ah, those silly publishers. When will they learn?

I was sent a little over 30 entries and it was not easy narrowing them down. As usual, the standard of writing was very high- and not just with the winners, either. A lot of the entries made me laugh, and that's always a good starting-off point, but the major point of interest for me was watching where you took the story. I gave the villain an outrageous name- Sadistica Tortura- and sat back and let the fun begin. There were some lovely ideas in there, some lovely moments and some fantastic lines. You should all be proud- especially those of you who managed to stick to the word count (ahem).


I managed to take a few days off last week, but seeing as how I have about five weeks before I head off on tour, I need to start working again. August is pretty much wiped off my calendar as far as writing goes, so I'm going to have to get an early start on Book Eight. Which is scary, because it only seems like a few weeks ago that I finished Book Seven. I'm not going to talk about Book Eight AT ALL until a few months from now, once you've absorbed KOTW into your bloodstream, but it feels kind of weird to be tying up all of these stories that I've been telling since 2007. Best not dwell, methinks...

Oh, and as for KOTW release dates, those lucky scamps in Australia/New Zealand will be getting the new book ever-so-slightly ahead of anyone else... My tour there starts on August 8th, and my publishers want the books on the shelves at LEAST one week before that- maybe even two. For the UK and Ireland, we're looking at a release date of August 30th, I think.

Of course, the Minions-who-speak-funny know by now how much I detest spoilers, and you've all been fantastic at not ruining the books for other people. I shall expect this to continue (shakes fist in a threatening manner...)

For all you Ameriminions, still no news on getting the newer books released over there, my apologies. I have some positive news for the Germinions, however, as my German publishers are planning to catch up to the English-language releases. More news on that when I have it.


Oh, and Irish readers will be able to take a break from the football final on Sunday night to tune into Celebrity Mastermind on TV3, where I shall be showing off my amazing brain power on national TV. Hells yeah.


And now, a picture.

I agree!
As soon as I seen them, I thought, OMG EVIL YETIS- AWESOME!!

Holly said...

I'm glad we'll be getting the book in August! That's awesome.

The fact that the winners of the competition all seemed to have not stuck to the wordcount was a little sad, as I know a lot of people who entered and agonised (and had to cut out some great stuff) over their own wordcounts. I think if they'd known the rules weren't actually rigid dealbreakers they'd have been happy, but ah well. I can't wait to finish reading all of the ten winners! I wish we know who made it to the final 30, too... :D

Iguanaofdoom said...

ValkryieCain said...

DEREK! Funny story- I have been looking around for a horse- yes, yes, I love horses- And I found one- He LOVES to jump, He is black and has a white stripe down his face, four white socks, very friendly- HERE IS THE BEST BIT- His name is Skulduggery!!!!!! :D Hahaha! Whenever I went to visit, I nearly DIED when the man told me his name was Skulduggery- turns out he is named after the WORD skulduggery and not the Skeleton.... Oh, well, now he's a skeleton :P hehe :P

ValkryieCain said...

*shakes hand*

Emerald Melody said...

Afternoon fellow bloggers

Willow Storm said...

Hello Caroline.
Nice to meet you.
How are you?

Willow Storm said...

Hi Emerald, how are you?

Emerald Melody said...

Ah not too bad Willow.
Trying to get my brain moving so I can get writing the rest of my next chapter

But as always my brain is stalled

Willow Storm said...

I'm going to have loads of email's soon.Not from the people I want them to be from.

Emerald Melody said...

Why who is stalking you Willow lol

Willow Storm said...

My extremely annoying cousin. Asking me about girls. -.- . And what they like in a guy. I have no idea, really, I don't. Why does he come to me, with his problems?

Willow Storm said...

I have to go. Bye! I might be back later. I don't know, but I'll try!

*Leaves hugs for those who want them*
*Also leaves a banquet*

Kirsty said...

OHMYGOSH DEREK, I'M KIRSTY VAN DER VEER AND YOU CHOSE ME AS ONE OF THE WINNERS, AND I JUST WANNA SAY...
THANK YOU! AND YAY! AND THANKS AGAIN! AND YAY AGAIN!

Emerald Melody said...

Well then tell him you have no idea cause your not interested in girls.

Insecure boys always turn to the first girl who has a repertoire with them to try and get an insight. It can get really annoying.

As I said, just tell him that your not interested in girls so you wouldn't know.

NJ Maverick (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

Hey Em!!
*hugs*
Good to see you again!!

There going to be anymore of your story soon?

NJ Maverick (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

Hey Kirsty!
Congratulations on Winning!
I thought your story was Brilliant!
I though all the top 10 deserved to be there!!

Emerald Melody said...

Heya NJ
*hugs back*

I started chapter 6 a few nights ago and I'm still trying to get my brain kickstarted. It is taking me a while.

I hate when I get like this.

NJ Maverick (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

Nixion Strange said...

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

Luciana Scáth said...

*shoves Eve in the lake, too*

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

Some people only comment a couple times onnew posts and feel it is nto a place for convos. Many of us took lots of heat for doing that. AS for me, I am trying to come back. It's slow going. SO many distractions. But I am off teh chats now and don't want to go back on ever. Weekends are terrible for doign any wrting or have a good convo for me though.

Lynxia Lost said...

Bye Cassidy!

*pushes Eve in lake too* Evil Minions!

Nixion Strange said...

Bye Cassidy!

Luciana Scáth said...

NJ Maverick (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

Bye Cassidy!!
Hope to see you soon!

I'm back to the blog too. Gonna try and focus on writing!

Lynxia Lost said...

What is the difference between a OZ accent and NZ accent?

Eve the ROCK said...

*is pushed into lake a third time*

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

LYNXIA!!!!! *hugs tightly*
AWESOME TO SEE YOU! Might get yelled at by my dad cause things are going badly here.

Eve the ROCK said...

BIG difference, Lynxia

Becky said...

SOBS BECAUSE THERE'S ALWAYS SOMEONE ON FACEBOOK WHO SPOILS IT FOR ME AND/OR TELLS ME THERE'S VALDUGGERY IN IT TO MAKE ME SOB MORE.

anyWAAAAY. I'm so unbelievably amused by the "(shakes fist in threatening manner...)". Like, I will use that for EVERYTHING now. I should totes get it on a T-Shirt.

ALSO JOE WON. Oh my God his entry made me laugh. He was a total babe and asked permission to use the baguette joke and I'm actually so glad he did, I was bloody sobbing I laughed so hard.

I'm really looking forward to KOTW, and the tour. I keep getting butterflies really bad. I'm determined to bring you something again this year, only a little more manageable than a giant drawing and floating unicorn, ahem.

ALLLLSSSOOOOOOOOOOO I have painted some fandom shoes, that I will be wearing to a signing to show you. I HOPE YOU RECOGNISE ME AGAIN, OTHERWISE I'LL FEEL REALLY AWKWARD.


I'm trying to thing of something else to say but it's not really working for me.

Nixion Strange said...

That's like asking the difference between an Irish accent and an English accent Lynxia

Luciana Scáth said...

BECKY DID YOU SEE MY COMMENT? *hopes she didn't*

Lynxia Lost said...

*is squished* Why? What's wrong Kal?

Is there Eve? I could never tell. XP

Lynxia Lost said...

There is a HUGE difference between English and Irish.

Zafira Kerias said...

I dont have an accent! I seriously dont. My words arent funny...unless you think the Jersey accent....my parents have that. I sound normal! The Irish got an accent!

NJ Maverick (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

I have a Norn Irish accent.

Nixion Strange said...

Exactly

Nixion Strange said...

Well, to me Zaf, I don't hear any accent with Australians, so...
*pushes Zaf in the lake*

Lynxia Lost said...

Accents are confusing...

Luciana Scáth said...

ALSO *tacklehugs Beckles*

NJ Maverick (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

There are so many!!

Lynxia Lost said...

To me it's very odd when the American girl at school talks, she makes the rest of us sound so posh. Mine's just a standard English accent. Nothing special.

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

I don't have an accent. My speech is boring :P

NJ Maverick (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

Becky, have we met yet??
I think we have, I can't be sure though!

Nixion Strange said...

I bet you do Kal. You may not hear it, but I bet you do

Emerald Melody said...

Are you a Northern NJ? Which part?

Eve the ROCK said...

Everyone has an accent, guys...

Becky said...

I just scrolled up to read it. PFFFFT *hits with newspaper* You srsly win errywhur I hope you know. BUT YOU KNOW ON THE VERY OFF CHANCE THAT HE HAS I WILL CRY SO MUCH.

Like I will actually drown myself, and the village, IN MY TEARS.

I hope he kills be off if he does.

Is that weird

Zafira Kerias said...

*spazzes out then drags self out of lake*

meh....*shadow walks in the tree*

i call being lookout if Master Derek visits!!!

*watches for Master Derek*

Lynxia Lost said...

Mine's just... Meh. English. Typical English, not posh or chavy just... English.

Becky said...

I SOUND LIKE A FARMER IF ANY OF Y'ALL WISH TO KNOW.

I'm from Suffolk in the UK which explains it really

NJ Maverick (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

@Em: County Antrim.
Why?

Zafira Kerias said...

Em I'm not from NJ my parents are northern NJ I'm from Pennsylvania.

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

It's like writing. There is the standard way of writing then cursive. Cursive is more fancy and people with accents have a pretty way of speaking. to us the English ARE posh, the aussies exotic, and we are totaly charmed by tthe Irish and Scottish accents. :D

NJ Maverick (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

Everyone has Accents!!

Lynxia Lost said...

I used to live in Stoke-on-Trent then moved to the Lake District so mine is just Northern but I don't have a dialect, I don't use any non standard English words unless you count abbreviations.

Eve the ROCK said...

There is no standard way of speaking. Everyone has an accent

NJ Maverick (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

@Zaf: I think Em was talking to me :P
I'm From Northern Ireland, and my Name is NJ :L

Lynxia Lost said...

I am not posh though!!! I might like Earl Grey but that doesn't make me posh (people at school think it does!! D:)

Nixion Strange said...

Oh, btw
NO AUSTRALIAN EVER SAYS G'DAY. EVER

Becky said...

TEA.

ahem

Zafira Kerias said...

The Irish is funny....

Australian: epic

Brittish: fun to mimick

Emerald Melody said...

Your only up the road from Dublin, we are literally across the border from one another lol that's weird

Lynxia Lost said...

*looks at URL bar* The end of the URL is '=true#form'!! True Form! AAAGGGGGHHHRRRRHHHH!!!

Becky said...

THE IRISH DON'T ACTUALLY SAY "TOP OF THE MORNING TO YOU" WHICH MAKES ME SAD

Nixion Strange said...

I'm Australian so people at my school think I'm a bogan
Yeah, not many Australians there...

Eve the ROCK said...

Australians DO say "mate" a bit, though...

Luciana Scáth said...

BECKY. No that's not weird. No I do not win everywhere. I will cry for you. And ded457ewkr,p CW EGYWR. i WILL ALSO PROBABLY SCREAM.

Lynxia Lost said...

Hey! Don't mimic the accent!!

G'day is just weird...

Nixion Strange said...

Okay, mate I'll admit, but never G'day
Myth, not true

Becky said...

YOU DO WIN EVERYWHERE. ALL OVAR DA WALLS AND DA FLAWR AND TEH CEILIN

If like, no-one hears from me after the release of KOTW, you'll know Derek HAS mentioned me, and I have, in fact, died.

Lynxia Lost said...

I don't say... I can't remember what people thing English people say but I know I don't wear a suit (very often) or own a pocket watch... Oh wait, I do... DAMN IT!

NJ Maverick (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

Yeah! I have been to Dublin!!
Ever been in the Gaitey Theatre??

Luciana Scáth said...

I WILL KNOW THAT HE MENTIONED YOU AND SPAZ EVERYWHERE.

I DO NOT WIN EVERYWHERE. SAY THAT TO A MIRROR. Or, you know, draw that symbol and stuff and say it to your reflection? ;D

Lynxia Lost said...

*looks outside* Oh... My... Golden... God... It's sunny!!!!!!!!!! Very windy but SUNNY and WARM!!!

Luciana Scáth said...

I don't own a pocket watch! :D

But I drink tea, a lot. C:

Nixion Strange said...

Never had tea...

Zafira Kerias said...

Its sunny and warm....

*still watches for Master Derek*

Eve the ROCK said...

I have a friend with a British accent

Yeah, we don't say G'day. We say... Hi. Helloooo. Hey. Sup.

NJ Maverick (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

I drink too much tea.
Once I went through 12 MUGS of tea in one day.

Lynxia Lost said...

You have never had tea!!!!!??????
What? But- How- How can you have never had tea?

Eve the ROCK said...

Never had tea either

Lynxia Lost said...

12? I have one in the morning and one at night or hot chocolate!

Nixion Strange said...

Because I've never had tea

Becky said...

I say, old chap, spiffing day, is it not?

See, you say that English people aren't actually like that, BUT THEN THERE'S TOM HIDDLESTON, LIFE RUINER.




I tried to get my Reflection out.

Twice.

Neither time worked.

BUT PFFT NOPE YOU WIN MORE THAN ME

I DON'T EVEN WIN I'M JUST SORT OF "alright"

NJ Maverick (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

We, in N.I, 'S'craic way ye'
Yup. That's more the Culchies than anything :P

Lynxia Lost said...

OK, wbd now - typing...

Luciana Scáth said...

Only 12? The most I've had is...27...In 14 hours....

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

BTW just so you know, if i refer to anyone being posh I don't mean snobby. It accured tome some maby define it as that. But I alwasy thik of being highly cultured and educated. Polite to everyone.
ALso, it's good to know that Nix. Hope you have patience though with people because many will never get to travel and only glean info from your epic country from what they see in movies and TV shows. I guess it can happen to anyone, thetypical stereo type things. :P

Emerald Melody said...

Only once, a long time ago NJ

Hmmm, has anyone see my Sanctuary ID Last time I had it, Zaf was tackling m... Oh sh*t!

Lynxia Lost said...

I don't say spiffing.

Tom Hiddleston... Genius!!

Becky said...

I'm really British. It hurts. I'm so eccentric. And I drink so much tea I'm surprised I haven't actually liquefied INTO tea. I probably bleed tea.

Nixion Strange said...

Oh, and Crocodile Dundee... He is not anything like Australians

Eve the ROCK said...

I have hit chocolate on special occasions

No one in Adelaide drinks tea. Not that I've seen. Just coffee

NJ Maverick (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

Yeah... I'mma tea Addict.
I don't drink Coffee.
:P
Also I was bored, Home Alone, and just really wanted to drink a lot of Tea :P

Zafira Kerias said...

....

Omg at fireworks my Elders were there. We got bored waiting and endong up doing an epic light up sword battle. I failed....then they killed me and were spazzing cuz the Grand Mage was 'dead'

Becky said...

I actually say all the stereotypical British things just because.

Zafira Kerias said...

*sits with Em's I.D in tree*

looking for this Em???

Eve the ROCK said...

Have you got any red back spiders, non-Aussies?

Becky said...

I tried coffee once and gagged, I hated it XD

Nixion Strange said...

I like coffee

Emerald Melody said...

Zaf have you got my Sanctuary ID? Just checking all places, i've lost it.

Now I understand why you aren't after me anymore. Can't be after me and needing me if you've been killed

Lynxia Lost said...

I say splendid a lot and apothecary rather than chemist but I'm trying to stop that. I get a lot of odd looks...

NJ Maverick (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

I went to see Blood Brothers @ the Gaitey Last year. It was SO good

Eve the ROCK said...

Oh my god! I had pepper on tomatoes, couldn't taste a thing! I had to add HEAPS of pepper!

Nixion Strange said...

Zaf's dead?
So... do I get my third of Ireland?

Zafira Kerias said...

I lived xD they brought me to Nye (seriously this freakishly tall person we call Nye)

I dunno I think I do have it. Maybe I'll feed it to the Derek-lizard

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

I get a lot of odd looks because I am ....well.....because i amjust odd.
*nods and strokes imaginary beard thoughtfully*

Sparky Braginski said...
