Happy New Year

Another year over, and what a year it was.

2012 saw me jetting around the world yet again, meeting lots of lovely Minions, some of which laughed, some of which blathered, some of which stared, and some of which hyperventilated and cried tears of unbridled joy. I expected nothing less.

It saw another Skulduggery book reach number one in the Bestseller chart, despite a few bookshops releasing it early and risking my wrath (which is terrible and frightening. Honest it us. You can ask anyone).

It was also a year of writing and looming deadlines. I started the year without a single word of KOTW written, but within three months or so I had a finished manuscript that is probably my favourite of anything I've produced so far. Then The Maleficent Seven turned out to be 20,000 words longer than I had anticipated, so when November came I was still writing the damn thing, instead of starting Book 8 like I'd planned. The good news, of course, is that TMS turned out to be a whole heap of fun, and I have a feeling you'll like it when it's released in... in... oh God, when is it released? March? I think?

The whole thing started, by the way, because of the speed you lot raced through Deathbringer. After a year of hyping yourselves up and building excitement, the book was released and suddenly you had another year to wait for the next one. And for some reason I began to feel guilty about that, so I decided  to release something small between KOTW and Book 8, and Tanith's little adventure was born.

Book 8 is progressing well, you'll be happy to know. 25,000 words so far, which is roughly a fifth of KOTW. I don't know how long the new one will end up being, but it'll PROBABLY be fairly substantial. There's a whole lot of war to get through, after all.

Of course, while 2012 brought with it great surprises and good news, it also provided no news at all on the movie front... at least no news that I can talk about. I've been writing the script myself (and it is AWESOME) and I'd have liked to be able to announce some kind of film deal before the end of the year. But things move slowly in Hollywood, and things move even slower because I'm extra-cautious after what happened with Warner Bros (still awesome people, by the way). So just be patient, and eventually I'll have something to say. Good things come to those who wait.

(Well actually, good things come to those who work really hard to make those things happen, but whatever.)

But as the year draws to a close, I like to remember the things that I've enjoyed.

2012, after all, brought us these guys


 And this lot...


And this...


... this...


... this...


... that...


Oooh and this slice of awesomeness...


And it brought us Haywire...


... and so more of Gina Carano...


... which is ALWAYS a good thing...


And it had Ronda Rousey defending her Strikeforce title...


AND moving to the UFC...


And 2012 gave us Michelle Jenneke, for which I am eternally grateful...


... and my dear beloved Jenna...


Further words about Jenna, I think, need not be spoken.



And so, as we wave goodbye to 2012 and welcome 2013 with open arms, I thank you for all your support. And I'm not just talking about the Minions who comment on this Blog, or the Minions who populate the Forums or the Facebook page or Skuldpedia or the Roarhaven page, or the Minions who obsess about Skulduggery on tumblr or have set up their own websites, and I'm not just talking about the astonishing artists and writers who frequent deviantART and those nutters who follow me on Twitter EVEN THOUGH I NEVER TWEET...

... I'm also thanking YOU, the many silent Minions out there who read this Blog but don't comment. Whenever I talk about how proud I am of the Skulduggery readers, I don't just mean the readers I know. I mean you, too.

So, thank you for everything, and I hope you all have an amazing 2013.

Wait, wut? Several minutes and no comments? Does everyone but me have a life here?

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Also, YAY for 25,000 words. Book eight cannot come soon enough. I'm seriously glad there's the Tanith book to look forward to, too, because otherwise it'd be a long wait.

HAPPEH NEW YEAR TO DEREK AND ALL HIS MINIONS! -Editor's Article

Kribu said...

Hi Editor's Article! (Er, that's a rather strange name.)

Hi Zaf!

Happy New Year's Eve / almost 2013!

Also, I realised I've actually seen three of those films above. Which is ... more than I expected, as I haven't been much of a cinema goer for ages now. I did enjoy The Avengers, Batman & Hunger Games all quite a bit, though.

Editor'sArticle.Blogspot.com said...

Advance hello to Krestel, Nixon Strage, Eve the rock, and the whole gang!

Cassiel Lawless said...

Happy New Year, Derek!

Editor'sArticle.Blogspot.com said...

Zafira Kerias said...

Charisma Thorne said...

Zafira Kerias said...

Please Derek? It'd be a nice way to spend New Year's eve chatting with your Minions

EditorsArticle.Blogspot.com said...

I bet derek is waiting for more comments to show op (or more people) so he can have a bigger (better) conversation.

Zafira Kerias said...

That sounds like him

Plus i need him on I owe Trevor that question that kid threatened to attack me so i agreed

Kribu said...

I mean, I know it sounds weird, but...

Charisma Thorne said...

It's a shame we aren't all as nice as you are.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Gods must have tons to do... *nods and carries on reading Percy Jackson*

I wonder who would be my father/mother if I was a demigod...

Charisma Thorne said...

Luce, yeh, you're right! And it is New Year ...... so I shall say Hello Derek if you do come on and Happy New Year! But, on to other topics .....

Katie McGrath for China? Me think yes.

Fabi S. said...

Happy PJ!!!!
Probably Athena for me... Spiders seem to hate me. My eyes aren't gray though. But I can weave pretty well, and I'm good at strategy.

Becky Allaker said...

i love how gandalf just crawls in like "yh dudes i'm stil the grey yo" and then he just drops his robe and it's like "YO PEASANTS SO BASIC"

Zafira Kerias said...

He threatened us all with spoons

*sulks in corner*

Im giving up! He wins

*climbs tree and watches stars*

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

BECKY IS WRONG, KATIE IS PERFECT FOR CHINA


becky you need to read my blogpost because i mentioned you and Ashley and Ellikins and Brosephine and Nathan and Andrew and people and yeah

Ieni the Ninja Aeroplane (Ieni Lorarté-Strider) said...

And that, my friends is a prime example why everyone me and my sister dislike my dad.
That was a fail of trying to play a game, thanks to a certain person -_-
You mentioning PJ? Ah...my friend's obsessed with that - she even had a Percy Jackson themed party...

Charisma Thorne said...

Got to leave for a bit but shall be back later! If Derek is on say Hi from Charisma!! Bye bye!!

Ieni the Ninja Aeroplane (Ieni Lorarté-Strider) said...

Bye, Charisma:( *waves*

Zafira Kerias said...

If he comes....

* watches volcano errupt*

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Bye Charisma! *huggles*

Becky Allaker said...

I AM NEVER WRONG, WOMAN.

AND I SHALL READ IT LATER! I'd read it now but I have a head ache and reading too much will do my head in. Post it on my facebook please, m'love. <3

Fabi S. said...

Bye Charisma!!!!

Becky Allaker said...

"Charisma says hi"

Zafira Kerias said...

Oh my god Becky he'll be scarred! Nice one!

*laughs*

Becky Allaker said...

BUT LUCE YOU N E E D TO WATCH CASINO ROYALE.

Because Eva Green is just... There's something about her. She's so quirky and I'd totally bed her.

And you KNOW how straight I am.

I judge a woman on her ability to be China by how gay I am for her.

Melica Frost said...

I have just been punched in the gut...it surprisingly didnt hurt...

Becky Allaker said...

Tbh I doubt Derek's shocked by anything I say any more.

Becky Allaker said...

I'm in such a weird mood, good God.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

YOU ARE SO WRONG, SHUSH

LOL, OKAY. I'VE PUT A LINK TO IT ON MY PAGE, BUT I AM NOT POSTING IT ON FACEBOOK BECAUSE 3 THOUSAND WORDS

YOU JUST CALLED ME LUCE AND THAT CREEPS ME OUT, WHAT

Fabi S. said...

Wbd, watching and hoping Derek appears, but have to record one more track today.

Zafira Kerias said...

I think he's frightened by you

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

GODS, BECKY, GODS! THERE ARE LOTS. TWELVE MAIN ONES, plus Hades. AND THEN OTHER GODS

someone just said i'd be daughter of one of the big three o.o

Ieni the Ninja Aeroplane (Ieni Lorarté-Strider) said...

Sorry I disappeared - I was reading Clover's blog post, which honestly, was amazing.
But then it was written by an amazing person, so yeah:)

Mel! *ninjaeroplanetacklehugs*
:(

Rose Black said...

Happy New Year to you too, Derek!!!!! I met you twice this year!!!!

2012 has been a fairly shitty year for me... BUT I MET DEREK LANDY SO THAT MAKES IT OKAY. 2013 better be a good one, though... *glares threateningly at 2013*

Anyways enough of my pessimissim and reeeeally bad spelling!

Happy New Year everyone, I hope 2013 is a great one for you all!

G.C.Lloyd said...

Is it really going to be happy new year? http://whenigetdowntowriting.blogspot.com.es/

Zafira Kerias said...

Pity 2013 i bet wont bring Derek any closer to touring America

Becky Allaker said...

ZAF YOU NEED TO SAVE UP/NAG PARENTS FOR A HOLIDAY TO THE UK/IRELAND

Becky Allaker said...

so am i the only one who finds Ross Kemp really fitting for Ghastly

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

HONESTLY, i think he might be right. If I was a demigod it'd probably be one of the big three. So either Zeus or Poseidon. But I prefer to be in the air, meaning Zeus.

WHICH MAKES ME FEEL BAD FOR THALIA ;-;

Becky Allaker said...

C'MON GUYS IF YOU LEAVE ME ALONE TOO LONG I GET ALL SOUL SEARCHY

AND WEIRD

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

LET'S ALL JUST AGREE THAT HIDDLES IS RAVEL

SERPINE IS ANDREW SCOTT

AND BECKY IS HARMONY

Becky Allaker said...

oh i am not alone

Zafira Kerias said...

I have nagged! They say its too much to go to Ireland

I sent Derek my Scepter of The Ancients book few weeks ago

Becky Allaker said...

DOES THIS MEAN I GET TO SHAG HIM WHEN THE SEVENTH FILM COMES AROUND BECAUSE I'LL PROBABLY SET FIRE TO SOMEONE'S CAT IF NOT

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

...Let's say yes.

You can just marry him after the movie, too.

Becky Allaker said...

sometimes i say things and then wonder why

and then i laugh at myself

Becky Allaker said...

omg

literally though after watching The Town I'm in love with his acting.

Becky Allaker said...

SO THE OTHER DAY I REALIZED THAT I'VE INDIRECTLY MET BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH AND TOM HIDDLESTON.

Zafira Kerias said...

Bloody hell....Becky you scarred me! I had images of Harmony and Serpine!!

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

I'm really tempted to bring up rainbows but I think Becky would kill me if she ever met me because of that... :3

Becky Allaker said...

GOOD GOD WOMAN IMAGINE HOW I FELT WHEN I READ IT

There I am, happily loathing Serpine as I had from book one (I love his character, he's a fabulous bad guy. But he ended my OTP and nOPE) and then BAM. HARMONY IS THERE. AND SERPINE'S ALL LIKE "so if yo get sad without ma lovin genitals gET YO TITS IN MA BED AND INHALE DAT TOWEL GURL"
and i just sat there screaming and crying and laughing and choking on my bed because I now have no choice but to ship Serpine WITH MY OWN CHARACTER

WHAT

AND I RECALL THROWING SOMETHING AT A PHOTO OF DEREK

PrawnsTheLeprechaun (Seoirsín/Georgina Bashford) said...

2013. Wow. I feel older.

Cool :c)

And I STILL didn't get my Christmas test results! :P

Mango was buried today. My dear dead cat. R.I.P :'( He had one eye and he was totally Prawesome!

I also realized today that I'm crap at digging :l

Zafira Kerias said...

Rainbows!

Becky Allaker said...

omfg jordan stahp

Fabi S. said...

My most Sincere Condolences for the loss of your Cat.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

THE THING IS

I KNEW ABOUT IT THE DAY THE BOOK WAS RELEASED IN OZ AND I WAS CRYING BECAUSE OF IT

LOOOOL. R a i n b o w s !

speaking of rainbows, i still can't find any rainbow wrapping paper and i want to find some for Ellie's birthday

Becky Allaker said...

honestly though it's so damn awesome to have my character in my favourite book series, and have her shippable.

proud of u harmony

u have come so far

SHE'S BEEN MY OC SINCE I WAS 7 I DON'T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND I JUST

FEELS

ALL MY

FEELSKNDSKJVSDK,

i should stop posting now

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

LOL. Honestly, I don't think I'd want Luciana in an SP book. Because I am, honestly, sick of my own name. ._.

Becky Allaker said...

so I just realised that Derek's writing another script, thus proving that my brain is useless and i-

Becky Allaker said...

WOMAN I WILL SLAP YOU. I love that name, omg.

there was a time when I was gonna change Harmony's name, because after like, 6 years "Harmony" got a bit tedious.

Now I'm so glad I didn't

She's my bby.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

And I knew all this because rumours~

I hear most rumours. It's rare for me to be out of the loop. OH GOD NEXT YEAR WHEN I'M IN AMERICA SOMEONE WILL HAVE TO UPDATE ME WHEN I'M BACK AND I'LL CRY BECAUSE I MISSED EVERYTHING BUT BE HAPPY TOO BECAUSE AMERICA AND HARRY POTTER AND HG AND PRETTY THINGS AND MARVEL THEME PARK THING AND LEGO LAND FLORIDA AND YAY

Zafira Kerias said...

Becky i might find out the sheer joy of having a chatacter in SP Derek said he'd consider making me an Elder for America but i might get killed

Becky Allaker said...

and also a douche

rude

unsociable

full of herself

basically a female dean winchester


her and serpine are actually quite a match, as far as friends with benefits go.

Ieni the Ninja Aeroplane (Ieni Lorarté-Strider) said...

Back - I got booted off the computer...

Omg, Becky, so like when you were 7 this Harmony was very innocent and never considered shagging Serpine.
Wait, were you EVER innocent?

I think if I asked Derek to put Ieni in, he'd write Leni, because that's what he says when he Blogspeaks, so I'll be too -_- to appreciate having something in there.

seriously, though, i am actually getting fed up of my name

I used to be proud of it.

But it's so crappy and bleurgh

STUPID IMAGINATION THAT DOESN'T WORK

Becky Allaker said...

omfg it's really bad though because you want to screech at everyone that YOU are in YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK SERIES.

but you can't because people think you're an attention seeking twat waffle when, in fact, you're just REALLY HAPPY.

Becky Allaker said...

jhfgvkushgksegu oh my gOD

Becky Allaker said...

Jordan i will PUNCH YOU IN THE FEELS. Your name is awesome. It sounds like it'd fit in SP really well.

And then there's Cerys Bea.

THAT I need to change.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

I'm going to try writing fiction again, I think...

EVEN THOUGH I AM SO BAD AT WRITING IT'S ACTUALLY PAINFUL

I WANT TO CHANGE MY TAKEN NAME BUT IT'S NOT ALLOWED SO I CAN'T AND BLEURGH ;-;

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Ieni the Ninja Aeroplane (Ieni Lorarté-Strider) said...

I think I had variations on my name in the first few weeks and then I've kinda tweaked it a bit recently and OMG THIS BISCUIT IS ACTUALLY SO NICE. Anyone want some?

But...but your name is like AMAZING!:O

Fabi S. said...

While I agree that stupid names are stupid, I do not consider Luciana Scáth to be one of them.

Becky Allaker said...

OMFG JORDAN DON'T TALK TO ME ABOUT INABILITY TO WRITE.

I was gonna write Skul's family's deaths the other day, before I realised I was writing Serpine too sassy and Skulduggery too dry.

And the writing in general was atrocious.

I should stick to my htgfjwenfskgh ing

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

BECKY YOU CAN ACTUALLY WRITE


THEN THERE'S ME THAT'S JUST SO BAD AT ANYTHING ARTISTIC

Seriously, I'M ONLY ANY GOOD WITH ACADMEICS.

I can't draw or be funny, either. :P I'm entirely focussed on academics and that's why I am "intelligent".

Becky Allaker said...

i also sobbed in KOTW because in a tiny cameo, Derek managed to nail Harmony's character better than I ever had.

Which is pretty lame for me.

Becky Allaker said...

i'm not even funny i'm just an idiot.

I'm basically desmond.

Becky Allaker said...
