Er.

First, let's get some bad news out of the way... errr... you're going to have to wait just a FEW more days for the Tanith cover...

(notmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfaultnotmyfault)

Ahem.

This probably won't make you feel ANY better about the delay, but it's looking amazing right now. We still have to get the colour just right (because this was an unplanned addition to the series, it's kind of thrown our title-colour scheme up into the air...) but it's looking beautiful. Tanith looks like a total BAMF.

Middle of next week. DEFINITELY.

Hopefully.

The good news is, I've finished writing it. I finished yesterday and sent it off. Right now, before the editing process begins, it is 54,000 words long. That's fifty-four THOUSAND.

It was MEANT to be roughly twice the size of The End Of The World, which came in at something like 17,000 words. So when I started I was looking at a quick 36,000 word novella that I'd bang out between the end of the KOTW tour and the beginning of writing Book 8, giving me loads of time to relax and take it easy.

And it was going fine, it really was. I had Tanith and Sanguine, and they'd recruited their team of villains, and the story was rattling along and everything was cool... and then I introduced a team of good guys as well. So we have Dexter Vex and Frightening Jones and a few new characters, including the Monster Hunters (two guys I've been trying to find a place for in the regular books) and Saracen Rue. Saracen is the only surviving member of the Dead Men that we haven't met yet, and it was just so much fun writing them all that the word count kind of... ran off, dragging me behind it.

It was MEANT to be a little sliver of a book. Now it's practically two-thirds the length of Book One.

The things I do for you people, I swear...


The "Can Your School Get More Awesome?" competition is still going strong over at the Skulduggery website. The ingenuity on display is something to behold, with many of you using both social AND mainstream media (local papers, radio stations) to garner as many votes as possible. Have to say, I'm impressed at the imagination being displayed- there are some real smart cookies out there. There a few schools that are practically guaranteed to be in the top ten, there are plenty more who have established themselves as challengers, and then there are the schools with only a few votes. And to the people who put forward THOSE schools, I have to ask- how does it feel to be so utterly cool? How does it feel to be the only one in your area with enough good taste to vote? You are shining lights, you truly are.

I'm just looking at some of the photos... I love that the Bishopston school in Swansea and Heathcote School and a few others have sent us photos of the school crest- I have no idea how Tom would have drawn Skulduggery in THOSE photos but it would have been fun to see him try...

And St Annes in Shankill, who supplied an arial view... Dammit, if this had been voted for, Tom could have drawn Valkyrie plummeting from the sky and Skulduggery swooping in to save her. Argh! The potential for coolness would have been astronomical!

Let's see, what else... Skulduggery and Val would have looked awesome in the corridor of Holy Family Senior School in Ennis...  and they have skeletons in St Matthews!... imagine Val abseiling down the side of Carterton Community College... or Skulduggery walking up the stairs of Selly Park Technology College for Girls... the dogs in Gabbinbar State School in Toowoomba (you don't have to look up Toowoomba to know it's in Australia, do you?) would have been able to chew on poor Skulduggery's leg... awww and I've just seen the picture from Invicta Grammar School with all the girls in army fatigues- I'd have loved to have visited there... I'm pretty sure that's a picture of Camilla visiting Brookside Primary School- so Val would have looked pretty cheeky pulling a face behind her back... and she would have fit right in with the girls from Oakmeeds Community College... Skulduggery would have been so proud to stand in amongst everyone in Scarborough College... then we have Skulduggery himself in Brentwood Ursuline Convent HS... and I'd have loved to have visited Hitchin Girls School, if only so I could have made a load of jokes about hitchin' girls...

Voting is still going on, so you've all got plenty of time left. Once we have the top ten, it'll be up to me to pick the photo that would lead to the best Skulduggery pic and then we'll have our winner. But the effort all of you have gone to is just hilariously impressive...

Ahem.. So, just to point out.. Some of your fans have actually left school and live in Cardiff....
Just thought I'd throw that out there.

Derek Landy said...

Oh, there are plenty of Skulduggery readers who left school a LONG time ago... you're not alone....!

Luna Brightside said...

3rd!

Luna Brightside said...

so glad I'm ill today n_n
now to actually read the post...

Luna Brightside said...

*glares*
me want Tanith cover NOW! ¬.¬

Alex Delfin said...

Hello Derek Landy!

I am a huge fan of SP, and of you, because you're AWESOME.

Would you read a fanfic I'm writing with llamalovesdragons? It's called Revenge, and it's under her name. I mean, you don't have to read it, but it would be nice...

And also I can't wait for the Tanith novella! YAY FOR SARACEN RUE!

Luna Brightside said...

wait, hang on...Derek might still be online???
*fangirls*
*ahem*
I'll go back to the corner now

Luna Brightside said...

that was the Blue Danube by the way ^

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

MORE WAITING? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHIMGONNAGOINSSANEAGAINDEREK!


And I didn't get to enter my school 'cause I'm America... *sulks*

Oh well, at least I'll meet you in Ireland. Which still needs to be planned for!

Luna Brightside said...

hurray for my emo loneliness! \(`o`)/

Rhian Hooper said...

that's good to hear. will you be coming to cardiff at all or is that not a place you go?
and i'm also very jealous of your cover artist. it appears he has my dream job.

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

By the way, I would've commented a while ago, but my computer screen flipped itself freaking SIDEWAYS so it was hard to use...

I had to read the post on a SIDEWAYS SCREEN.

Derek, are you still here? If you are I'll give you this winged walrus in a party hat!

*gestures dramatically to walrus*

Luna Brightside said...

wait, there's people on here???

Luna Brightside said...

I'M NOT ALONE!

Luna Brightside said...

I'M NOT ALONE!

Luna Brightside said...

I don't know why that posted twice....

Kribu said...

Ahem. I'm pretty sure that anything above 50,000 words is generally considered a novel, not a novella any more...

...that does NOT mean I'm complaining. Not in the least! (Also, more Dexter Vex? Now THAT is also never a bad thing!)

Definitely the sort of news that makes waiting a few more days for the cover more than worthwhile, though.

Kribu said...

Also, good luck to everyone who's schools are in the competition!

SPDirectioner said...

I am very disappointed. I've been waiting ALL WEEEK for the cover! And I can't enter my school into that contest majigerythingy because I am AMERICAN! I'm going to go and sob in the corner.

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

It's okay SPD, I'll go sob in the corner with you.

Sir Reingington said...

I'm surprised, and frankly disturbed, that this competition has been going on without my knowledge. It's a good thing that my school does have an awesome deficiency. Well, except for the completely in-proportional size of the gym compared to the rest of the school.

Minion said...

Hello... I just had an idea... I'm not sure where it came from but it is a free idea for any fanfic writers or even Derek.... What would happen if somebody tricked skulduggery into thinking that Valkyrie was dead?... I shall leave now... >_<

Lord Vlaedr said...

Hey Mr. Landy!!!!

Sadly, the delayed novella will not affect me. All books published in other places on Earth only reach South Africa a few weeks later.

But you should still visit us!!!! South Africa loves you! Even if they don't entirely know it yet... ;)

Anyway, I just know you will win!

~Your first and greatest Afri-Minion,

Lord Vlaedr.

Sir Reingington said...

While I doubt that would happen, the concept itself is fascinating. What if Skullduggery's partner, being through thick and thin with him, up and died on him? Or seemed to. Who would he lash out at? What would happen?

I cannot say, that is for sure.

Kestrel LeStarre said...

Hi!

DEREK, DEREK, DEREK! Questions:

First, did Skulduggery have a taken name BEFORE he became a skeleton? Because although I know that Skulduggery is a word the suits him perfectly, some people(like Fletcher in TFO) seem to take it as a reference to his skeleton-ness.


Second, if someone were to be an Elemental after the Surge, could they get the kind of symbols on their body that China has, and actually USE them?

Kestrel LeStarre said...

Also, YAY! for longer novella, BOO! for having to wait longer for the cover.

Sir Reingington said...

All things wait for those who come.

Kestrel LeStarre said...

Also, if the Necromancers were to tell Lord Vile what the Passage actually was, would he have done it?

Kestrel LeStarre said...

Hey Sir!


*thinks* I could've sworn it was 'all things come for those who wait'

Sir Reingington said...

It was that.

Kestrel LeStarre said...

So I haven't gone COMPLETELY loopy.

No, wait. I have. I definitely have.

Sir Reingington said...

Anyways, about the passage thing, I doubt it.

Vile only wanted death and destruction, why would he try to stop death, even if he got to kill so many before doing so?

Kestrel LeStarre said...

True...true.


Although, he would've shared Skulduggery's mindset, so he might have thought something along the lines of "Well, I'll kill these 3 billion people, but the possibilities of it working are infinitesimal, so I'll kill everyone else afterward."

Sir Reingington said...

Why stop at 3 billion? After all, it's much more plausible that he'd go for the overkill.

Kestrel LeStarre said...

Again, true.

But wouldn't it be more satisfying in the long run to do a few at a time?

If 3 billion can be counted as a few, that is.

Georgina Howlett said...

Sigh. My school is nowhere close to winning and I very much doubt that I'll be able to get the message out anywhere. :c

Sir Reingington said...

And of course, depending on the time period when he was Vile, how much of the human population would there be left if he killed 3 billion people?

Kestrel LeStarre said...

It was only a couple hundred years ago. Not that much of a difference.

Hi Georgina! Well, at least you were able to enter...!

June Clarence said...

I am SO looking forward to that Tanith Novella!

I don't mind the delayed cover as long as the book itself is not delayed ;-)

And I am happy to hear that Dexter Vex is going to feature in it - I just love his name, it sounds like awesome wrapped in ruggedly handsome!

Also: 54,000 words?! YOU WON NaNoWriMo! *laughs* - if you wrote it all in November, that is. Seriously, you should go check out NaNoWriMo and then offer to write a PepTalk - there are some guys out there who would love you forever for that, Derek!

Kestrel LeStarre said...

Hey June!

Sir Reingington said...

Greeting, June Clarence.

Emmmmmm said...

Ohhh, Why Do We Have To Wait! The Reveal of The Tanith Cover Would Of Made My Birthday Perfect! Ohhhhh Well, I Need To Work On My Patience Anyway.....

Kribu said...

Vile-as-Death-Bringer really couldn't have had three billion people to kill... I mean, even in 1800, there were, what, less than a billion people in the world? Something like 600-700 million around 1700?

Unless Skul became Vile in the 1970s, which I rather doubt, it would have been physically impossible for him to kill three billion people. I'd assumed about half of however many people there were at a time would have done the trick.

Kestrel LeStarre said...

Kribu, yeah that's pretty much what I thought, but has the population really grown THAT much?

Sir Reingington said...

Still, if you think about it, the necromancers might have kept the passage so secret for so long not just because of the whole murder thing, but because there wasn't enough people's souls that would block the stream of life.

Sir Reingington said...

As to the population of the world, it has grown immensely. Mostly because of the post-industrial revolution era. The industrial revolution shortly before it provided the means to live a longer life, a middle class that wasn't poor, and since it WASN'T the industrial revolution it had less of the tragic loss of life.

I am only talking about the first industrial revolution, of course.

Kestrel LeStarre said...

*head explodes* I love how we talk about it like it actually happened.



I think they kept it secret because, as Wreath said to Valkyrie, "That's exactly the kind of reaction we were trying to avoid."

So I don't think they would tell ANYONE except the Death Bringer even when they knew the Death Bringer was going to do it, until afterwards.

Kestrel LeStarre said...

I have to go, bye!

Kribu said...

Kestrel - yes, it has. I just checked on Wikipedia just to see if my memories were in the right ballpark, and yes.

The population growth basically exploded in the 20th century - still only 2 billion people in the world in 1920, ~4 billion in the 1970s, ~6 billion in 2000, close to ~7 billion now.

(Also, does this mean that with every passing decade, the requirements of a potential Death Bringer are growing exponentially, too? I mean, someone who might have managed to kill 500 million people in 1800 but whose strength wouldn't have allowed for more would have been useless as a candidate in 2010...)

Adra "The Ducktor" Dark said...

DEREK! DEREK! HAVE YOU SENT MY DEATH BRINGER BACK???

PLEASE TELL ME

Georgina Howlett said...

Hi Kestrel! C:

Adra "The Ducktor" Dark said...

LOl Val... NO WONDER THE OTHER POST NO ONE WAS ON. THERE WAS ONE HERE xD

Oh Jesus...

*jumps around singing the Brave Sir Robin song*

Sir Reingington said...

Of course, all this is assuming that the stream of life's requirements to block it depend on the souls on earth at the current time. If 3 billion was the number that was always required, though, then even trying to become the Death Bringer and complete the Passage before the 1970's.

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

Well, maybe the Death Bringer back then was supposed to wipe out everyone except the Necromancers or something.

Kribu said...

If they always needed three billion, though, then why even bother to look for a Death Bringer before then?

Especially with, say, Vile - if he was thought to be the potential Death Bringer, and if we assume the Skul->temple->Vile thing happened at around, say, 1700 (I got the feeling that it didn't happen too long after his death and return, and if he died, say, in the 1660s, then ~1700 for Vile would make sense, yes?), then at the time no one could really predict just when the world would have over three billion people, so they'd have had to keep him around for a few centuries before he could actually do anything useful...

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

Derek, you need to update your Blogger Profile! It's been two years since Mortal Coil came out! Come on, add Death Bringer, The End of the World, Kingdom of the Wicked, and the Tanith thing when it comes out!

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

If it does require three billion, though, I think maybe the Necromancers didn't know back then. I bet they just wanted to try to kill off half the world to see if it'd work.

Sir Reingington said...

Well, we can't really know, can we?

Emerald Melody said...

First time commenting while using my phone... i think it has worked but extremely annoying as it is extremely slow -_- the Melody is not impressed!!

Ieni Lorartè said...

Yes. Yes I am.


You expected otherwise?

Adra "The Ducktor" Dark said...

OH my God... I nearly just threw my computer out the window... it shut down completely, unable to handle facebook AND this blog... *facepalm*

And perhaps... What is HITLER was like, a Death Bringer??? That'd be... Strange. Or Nero. OR anyone else.

Adra "The Ducktor" Dark said...

And actually... I shouldn't but You know, people change. That's how it is.

Lol... Good times.

*glares at sky* I'M ON TO YOU, DOCTOR-DEREK!

Colleen - I just don't like the people at my school and some of the teachers. Actually, I didn't really like the people at my last school. These people are better, I guess. I'm just not a people person.

Adra "The Ducktor" Dark said...

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

OMG ADRA!!

Wish it was being released sooner so I could soak up its awesomeness.

Melica Frost said...

well I love living in Scotland, but I suppose i dont have anything to compare it to... and DAVID TENNANT was by far the best doctor :)

Adra "The Ducktor" Dark said...

Nj- Right??? AND I KNOW. AND I SQUEALED IN CP WHEN IT SAID THAT HENRY'S MIDDLE NAME WAS JOCELYN.

Mind= blown.

AND JACE. MAH JACE. *creys in corner*

Sorry that I am distant, I'm completing some coursework and doing some chores. andsearchingforSPbooksthatIcanbuytogettonumberfifty.

MY MUM SAID SHE MIGHT BUY ME DB CE HB AND KOTW LPB! :D And maybe DB LPB.

So I can buy two that I need.

AND THEN I HAVE TO FIND THE MCs...!

Maralie Lily Charm said...

Hello Adra! :) *tacklehugs*

Hmm. I was just wondering, have we met, like, formally? And it's no bother :)

HEY LUCI! *tacklehugs*

HEY MEL! *tacklehugs*

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

THANK YOU, CASSIDY! YOU'RE BRILLIANT. AND I AM STILL IN SHOCK BECAUSE OF THAT POST BECAUSE PERFECT OMG.

Adra "The Ducktor" Dark said...

David Tennant doesn't PLAY the Doctor, he IS the Doctor...

And be right back y'all. Lunch. xD

Sir Reingington said...

I personally prefer Welsh accents.


But then again I might be biased.

Adra "The Ducktor" Dark said...

One last thing- Maralie. I don't think so. Maybe. I don't know. *hugs* anyway xD


Luce *hugs* good luck with the coursework. Ew.


NOW I GO. NJ, stay here. We have to babble on about Clace still.

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

Luce I have a CE DB!!

I have all the CE's you can get Except DD. I need to find it.

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

Indeed we do Adra!!
*hugs*

Maralie Lily Charm said...

Cassidy - You'd prefer to move to Ireland? :O You've probably never been there so... am I right? Seriously! You can never go to the beach, you can never play football (the pitches are always muddy :() aaaaand we own more raincoats than shoes. Probably.

Cassidy Clarimonde said...

Haha. No bother! I try! ;3

Also, anyone ever heard of Biffy Clyro!?

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

OMG MY DAD IS READING PWF :')

He read the 1st one in summer 2011.
He is finally reading book 2 :')
So proud of him right now :D

Maralie Lily Charm said...

Adra - Maybe not. Maybe yes. I don't know either. *accepts hug* :D

Melica Frost said...

I have heard of biffy clyro :)

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

@Cassidy: I have!!

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Awesome!

I need DB and MC. I have found a DB. But not an MC...And without that MC I won't be able to completely complete my collection...

ALMOST THERE, THOUGH!

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

Me too!!

I even own a proof copy now!! I found it on Amazon by accident. So I bought it :P

Cassidy Clarimonde said...

Maralie, you are correct, I have never been to Ireland. I really want to go to Trinity College and Temple Bar. And end up living there. Scotland is the same. You can't go to the beach because its always baltic. It's always raining so everything is muddy. I just want to live somewhere that is like my home in some ways and completely different in others :D

Cassidy Clarimonde said...

I LOVE Biffy Clyro! And, I will be going to see them in April! :3 I am so excited! xD

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Proof copies are easy to find...

I am...*counts* Seven books off a complete collection.

And then two(?) books off completing the US collection.

I have forty-seven SP books, plus the books I have for presents for other Skuttlebugs.

Trinity College. Ah. That's what we call the Tourist College. Basically because that is one of the only places tourists go. It's quite funny, in a way. And I have actually never been in Temple Bar. :P

That's really cool! :D That's why I don't want to move to Australia... T.T But if the recession keeps getting worse, I might have to. AND I DON'T WANT TO. *sobs*





Heh. I just remembered I'm in huge trouble. I know I am going to be.

Aw Lucky!!

Melica Frost said...

there is some things about scotland that are rubbish like the rain, the teperature etc... but am I weird because I actually like the bad things? I just think it wouldnt be the same without them...

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

I really wanna get the books in French. It'll help so much with my GCSE :P

I also need to but the Audio book CD's

Cassidy Clarimonde said...

I like the rain and the temperature too! :3 Also, muddy puddles. Cannot beat muddy puddles.

Flame Phoenix said...

I actually had to decode BAMF. *facepalms*


I KNEW WHAT IT WAS, I'M JUST SLOW.

IF ANYONE FINDS A MC COLLECTORS EDITION HARDBACK OR A LARGE PAPERBACK OF MORTAL COIL ONLINE PLEASE LET ME KNOW. OR IF YOU HAVE ONE, OR EVEN TWO, AND ARE WILLING TO TRADE LET ME KNOW ALSO. I HAVE LOTS OF BOOKS AND MANY OF THEM ARE FIRST EDITIONS.

MC is officially my least favourite SP book BECAUSE I CAN'T FRICKING FIND A CE OR A LPB!

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

MC CE's are easy to find compared to DD.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

.-.

I said I wanted them in French ages ago. Half of you didn't even know you could get them in French.

I'm going to get them in French and Spanish soon. I've asked my mum and she thinks it's a good idea. And my teachers agree. So I'll have to get them before January if I get them at all...

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

HEY FLAME!!
*hugs*
How're you??

Melica Frost said...

yep, you cant beat muddy puddles :)
I would use slang but it wouldnt make any sense if I type it...
but I might for the banter... y'know?

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

DD CE's are SO easy to find! I FOUND ONE WITHOUT LOOKING WHEN I FIRST STARTED COLLECTING!

If you can find me a MC CE let me know, ok? I'll look for a DD CE for you, too. I'm good at looking. Mainly because I know where to look...

OH MY FRICKING GOD I AM AN IDIOT! idea

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

I knew you could get them in French.

I seen that you could about a year and a half ago. But I wasn't even sure if I was keeping on french at that stage. I was thinking of getting the 1st in German instead.

Maralie Lily Charm said...

Hey! My comment was deleted :(


Rightio. I was saying, I'm like Peppa Pig with the muddy puddles xD Seriously. It's hysterical.



DAMN IT. I AM in huge trouble. *face-desk*

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

You're one of the people that asked me if you could actually get them in French when I first brought the whole thing up..

Hello, Flame! :)

Maralie Lily Charm said...

Hello Flame! :) *hugs*

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

This is the first time I've been upstairs since I've been home, coz the painters and decoraters have been working in the bathroom and on the stairs. I've decided I hate our house being redecorated . . . IT'S ODD HAVING STRANGERS IN IT.

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

When?

If I did, I forgot about seeing them.

But I am sure I knew about it ages ago, I seen them on Amazon when I was buying the Trade Paperbacks

Flame Phoenix said...

@Melica, I'd understand.

But it'd annoy the hell out of a lot of people.


AND I'M GOOD :)


AND LUCIANNA, I HAVE A LPB OF MC.

BUT IT'S SIGNED AND I WOULDN'T TRADE.
