Molly's Blog Post



Okay FINE, so we're all waiting for the Tanith cover... It's looking like a Friday reveal right now- so long as we suffer no more delays. Believe me, once you see it you'll know it's been worth the wait. Tom's best cover. Ever.


Speaking of awesome covers, take a look at these.


Isn't that brilliant? There is literally nothing about this cover that I do not love. And there's more!


I know Suz Korb is a Blog-reader and she's commented a few times, but just take a look at these books she's written. And the titles! Pulpy, trashy, and so much FUN.


You know that old saying, never judge a book by its cover? That's not always applicable. People who judge my books by Tom's covers know exactly what they're getting- awesomeness on a page. And if a writer has enough taste to approve these covers, as Ms Korb obviously does, then that bodes very well for what's inside. From what I know, they're all available online.



Okay, I didn't actually intend to show all of these covers, but once I started I just couldn't stop.



This Blog post, by the way, is for a girl called Molly, who I met today in Forbidden Planet in Dublin. There I was, perusing the shelves, building up the stack of comics in my hand, and then I hear a "Excuse me, can I ask you a question?" from right beside me. I turn, and there stands a fifteen-year old in a really odd hat. 

She was, as you can imagine, overjoyed at meeting me. We talked about her nonsensical love of all things Transformers (except the movies- she has issues with the movies) and her appreciation of Batman and how she never could get into Wonder Woman. That led to a conversation about lassoes, and then to a conversation about lassoing horses, and then to a conversation about how cowboys don't lasso horses, they just run after them when they want to catch them. Bless her, she has a small brain. 

So this is a Blog post for Molly. Happy birthday Molly. 



I've been watching some movies lately. I saw The Amazing Spider-Man last week. Not as bad as I'd been led to believe. I quite enjoyed it, in fact. Andrew Garfield didn't have to cry NEARLY as much as Tobey Maguire, and of course Emma Stone is just divine. I could watch her in anything.

The Dark Knight Rises is out now, of course, but I'd already seen that in the cinema. Not perfect, and some of the story just refuses to make any kind of sense, but a fitting end to the trilogy. I am in awe of Christopher Nolan's ability to generate atmosphere, and then use that atmosphere to make the audience dread what is about to happen.

I've been playing games as well. Just finished Hitman: Absolution. Awesome stuff. I want to play it again and not fire a single shot. Now that's a challenge...

I had been playing the new Assassin's Creed game, but got bored.

Dishonored, however, is a game that did not bore me. The thought and the imagination that went into building that world is staggering. Loved it.

Basically, I've been fitting as much as possible into the last few weeks because I think I've started Book 8... It's all very random at the moment, very casual, just writing a few bits and pieces, a few scenes here and there... but yeah... I think I've actually started. I had a look at the plot a few days ago, to remind myself of what's in store. I've already got it planned out to a degree- I did that a week or two after finishing KOTW- and wow. A LOT happens in this book. Like, SERIOUSLY. It's going to take a lot of planning on my part. War is like that. Complicated. Got to remember who's on who's side and where they are and when certain things take place and who's around when certain people DIE HORRIBLY.

Be warned. There will be horror. There will be slaughter. There will be betrayal and hatred and love and there WILL be blood.

Hi Derek

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Oh Derek! Vinette and I did this: make a list of characters that are on one side then make another of them who are on the other. We're doing that fanfic thing and it definetly helped so we reference who is what side

Bekka said...

I love this! I usually only notice when there are already 2,000 or so comments so it's discouraging. Hello Mr. Landy! I have a habit of reading your books aloud to my brother, because unfortunately he would not voluntarily pick up a book to save his life. My favorite thing is the voices. I'm unfortunately American, so I have an inaccurate accent, but having heard the first three excellent books on audio, I have begun cultivating an Irish accent, which I'm sure would sound awful to anyone actually from Ireland, but that's not important. I have also just completed my second novel, your books having inspired me to try adding horror, which I'd never done before. I see why you do it though, it's fun. Thank you for your hilarious books and blog and such.

Dragonheart said...

Zephr Shadows said...

Unknown said...

Hi Derek!

Derek Landy said...

Share a line with you, eh? A line I've just written? Okay, let's see...

"You live your lives restricted by rules. Even your magic is restricted. Sorcerers treat magic like science. It's disgusting and unnatural. It twists what true magic is all about."

Dragonheart said...

Thanks Persephone!
I'll bet you did good anyway, Zafira!
Besides, it's not as if I'm going to get called back, though a girl can always dream.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Nice covers!! They are pretty epic

Zephr Shadows said...

oops didn't see his comment. hi derek!!!!

Dragonheart said...

AAAKKKKKK! DEREK! hi

Georgina Howlett said...

DEREK YOU HAVE ARRIVED

BONJOUR

Unknown said...

* screams* MY GOLDEN GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unknown said...

Callbacks don't mean that you will get a part. It means that the people didn't see all of what they wanted to see the first time

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Ooooh!!! Thats a cool line. Out of curiosity did you ever find the notes on Scarab?

Zephr Shadows said...

Dragonheart said...

So wait, Derek, you said there was love?... Oooh!

Dragonheart said...

BTW, the covers are cool!

Unknown said...

I'm slowly converting my friends into minions. Your army is growing, Derek!

Georgina Howlett said...

Derek Landy said...

Georgina Howlett said...

Ca va bien merci, et toi, Monsieur? C:

Tu parle le francais, Derek? C:

Unknown said...

Same here. I got Zaf to read. She got 3 others to read and I converted one of my new freinds by describing it to her. I try my best to expand the army of minions.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Aww dangit! Ok. Oh yeah Derek I live like down the road from Vinette I think I hear her screaming. From my own house, oh Derek did you sort the mail?

Unknown said...

Its my first time talking to a god. Of course I'm paniking.

Dragonheart said...

Oh MY god, right now I am soooooooo excited for book 8, but I have to wait until next year! I guess, I'll have to make do with the Tanith Novella. Hey, Derek, Do you have any titles in mind for Book 8 yet?? I mean, I know it's early, but maybe?

Georgina Howlett said...

CHECK BEBO AGAIN BTW

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Vinette is that you I hear screaming?

Unknown said...

I am currently convincing another of my friends to read SP. She will be the third

Dragonheart said...

Zafira, I hear her too.

Unknown said...

Probally ... Uh-oh. Sedasive ring taking effect. * is out cold*

Derek Landy said...

Zephyr- the main tour will still be in September for Book 8, but I'm sure I'll be doing a few signings here and there for Tanith. Don't know where, though.

Persephone, Zafira- you rock.

Dragonheart- yep, I did say love. Not saying between who, though...

Georgina... a Christmas blog? We have twenty days left!

Dragonheart said...

HYPERVENTILATING!

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Aww thanks! I needed bit of ego expanding. You need to come to America for the Tanith one. Then you can meet me! And I'll have Vinette handcuffed

Georgina Howlett said...

I meant on Christmas Day you silly man

Also I demand well wishing words on my sixteenth because

A) I'm at school
B) it's a horrible off-timetable day
C) I have a physics exam
D) IM GETTING OLD

Zephr Shadows said...

i tried to get my friends to read SP but none of them read :c they dont understand my love for sp or stephen king! O.o

Unknown said...

wakes up* Derek, can I ask you something?

Derek Landy said...

Zaf, the mail is SORTED!

Dragonheart-I know the title but I ain't sayin'...!

Dragonheart said...

Wait, Derek, why aren't your books published in America? Because when I buy them, I have to buy them in Pounds from Amazon, UK...

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Derek did you get a letter from me, Serphina Jackson, and Marisa Spiritheart?

Unknown said...

OMG! I love stephan king too! I'm reading the complete & uncut version of the stand! Its a about as thick as KOTW but the print is so tiny!

Unknown said...

Derek, are you ever going to come to America?

Derek Landy said...

Ask away, Vinette!

Zephyr- you need a group of better friends!

Remind me closer to the date, Howlett! You must not let me forget!

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Oh yeah so we have to sit in homeroom for 2hrs, currently on the end of Faceless Ones, my goal to read Dark Days and Mortal Coil in 2hrs

Zephr Shadows said...

ahh thank you!! didn't get to go to the KOTW signings before so I'm counting down day/months til the next lot!! :D

Unknown said...

Derek, my friend says hi!

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

My birthday is exactly a month after Christmas January 25th

Unknown said...

Thank you. How do you get your ideas? Is it random & out of the blue or is it like you have something you do when your stuck? I need filler ideas before I kill myself in the first part of my short story.

Georgina Howlett said...

I shall try not to let you forget. Every day the week before I will warn you, and if nothing happens, I'll go into my physics exam and cry

I upgraded my SP wall by the way

Dragonheart said...

Happy Birthday in advance, Zafira!!
*Hands cupcake*
:D

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Vinette what i did read was AWESOME

NOM Ominous said...

HHEEELLLO!!!! OMG I can't believ I almost missed this.

Unknown said...

I know but I need ideas for inbetween the battle of L.A. and the battle of Dallas.

Dragonheart said...

Vinette, do you publish your work?

Georgina Howlett said...

Also wish my dog a birthday on his first on Christmas Day

Just slip in a "happy birthday to Howlett's dog Casper" in there

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Oooh. Right those two battles.

Derek Landy said...

Zaf- is that the one where you all asked a bunch of questions?

Vinette- The Stand is a DAUNTING read!

Dragonheart- only the first 3 books are published in America. The readership is growing, though, so hopefully soon we can make the others available.

Hi Persephone's friend!

Unknown said...

No. Its more of a hobby. Its just stuff I write in my notebook. Ask zaf.

Dragonheart said...

YAY! Because then I won't have to borrow my friend's books (Well, KOTW, anyway)

NOM Ominous said...

We somehow get the full series in Canada.

NOM Ominous said...

We somehow get the full series in Canada.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Yup Derek! Thats it. And I think Marisa wanted to know who had better handwriting out of us. Just give me a heads up when you do send back so my Mom doesnt go: who the hell is Zafira Kerias

Dragonheart said...

What do you write?

Zephr Shadows said...

Oh i love the uncut version!! The Stand is an amazing book!
And derek- i do!! Luckily both my brothers read SP though!!

Georgina Howlett said...

You know I should probably go to sleep but I'm still thinking about how my teacher tried to make me make him coffee in the staff room

I would so have been stared at if I had gone in there

Unknown said...

I know its daughting but I've already seen the movie. So far its good. I'm on Chapter 24 and I got it on Monday. For the record, I read Sceptre in 1 school day. I like books. Escpecially big ones.

NOM Ominous said...

Well, where I live anyway..
In montreal..

I told my friend that you said hi to her and I think she had a heart attack

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Vinette you saw how fast I read KOTW oh yeah remind me to bring it in for Marisa

NOM Ominous said...

Though we get them really late.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Dragonheart: she writes SP famfiction

Unknown said...

O.K. I will remind you that you must bring in KOTW for Marisa or she will subject to you torture of the Lulu kind. Hehehehehehehehehe

Dragonheart said...

What's her pen name?

Zephr Shadows said...

i managed to read the uncut version in a few days - it was so addictive!

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

NOOO NOT LULU!!!

Derek I can scar you: just picture Lucius Malfoy in a bright pink bikini and dancing to California Gurls,

Unknown said...

My Taken name. Thats the one i like the most or I might choose. ' Monica Delune.' depending on how evil I feel.

NOM Ominous said...

I never finish what I write. Except for those select few short stories, which you can see on my blog.

Unknown said...

That is the form of torture we subject the grand mage to when she dosent listen.

I HAVE THE SONG AND HIS NUMBER ON SPEED DIAL!Watch yourself...

Unknown said...

I only write short stories and poems. And the beginnings of long stories.

Unknown said...

DEREK HOW CAN YOU GET BORED WITH ASSASSIN'S CREED 3? *Legasp*

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

NO NO!!!

*hides behind Derek*

show him he never saw it!!

Dragonheart said...

If I had a taken name, I think it would be Avalon Summers. I wonder what Derek's would be?

Unknown said...

I try to write novels but I already have an ending in mind so it becomes too short.

Derek Landy said...

Vinette- oh good, you've asked the question ever writer dreads- where do you get your ideas??

It sounds like a silly answer, I know it does, but I daydream. That's it. If I'm stuck, if I run out of things to say... I go off and I daydream. Relax and let your imagination flow, Vinette. That's the secret.

Howlett- beware of teachers. They're ODD people.

Thrust- yep, for some reason the Canadian deal is linked to the UK deal, whereas the American one is out on its own. Which is weird.

Zaf- I mailed a bunch of stuff yesterday, so expect it in a few days.

Unknown said...

... Reserving Judgement on the situation ...

Unknown said...

Thanks. I do that too much any way so it shouldn't be too hard.

Dragonheart said...

So Derek, what happened to the movie?

NOM Ominous said...

I DAY DREAMMM! It keeps me from saying stupid things. Which is what happens whenever I open my mouth. yess..

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Thanks Derek. Oh are you excited for the Doctor Who on Christmas, Derek? Im recording it since my family is coming over. Hopefully I get KOTW paperback. I might try to send that to get signed.

Unknown said...

yeah derek ... What happened to that movie????????? * is geting phone ready in case lulu emergency*

Unknown said...

Derek, are you ever going to come to America? Ever? Please?

Dragonheart said...

Sophie, it's not my fault! Assassin's Creed 3 is exactly the same as 1 and 2!

Dragonheart and Vinette- no movie news yet. Stay tuned, though.

Zaf- I totally am looking forward to the DR Who Christmas special. I've just bought a Dr Who figure and it is AWESOME.

Persephone- hopefully I'll tour America at some stage.

Hi Kestrel! They jumped into the Swiss Alps. Possibly.

Georgina Howlett said...

Teachers ARE weird, but I have four of the loveliest ones ever (even Coffee-Charlton) and they're like the strange friends I always wanted x3

How's the cats? Your wife made up a cat analogy for me, Becky, her, you and Mary the other day which is quite accurate. Here it is:

I've come to the conclusion that Mary and Derek are like this couple, and me, Gero and Bex are cats, and Mary keeps feeding the cats scraps and Derek's like "no mary don't feed the cats, I don't want cats." and mary feeds them anyway and derek's like "nO MARY if you feed them they won't go away" and mary just goes on feeding the cats as derek stares angrily out the window at the prospect of having acquired three, mentally compromised cats who won't leave him alone.

Anonymous said...

Dragonheart, and the reason there isn't ALREADY a movie, is because they WOULDN'T LET HIM write the script.

Please?! I already have a cast list! I'LL BE THE DIRECTOR WITH ZAF!!! WE COULD MAKE IT!!!!

One last thing before I forget, what do the Elders robes look like?

Derek, I thought so! But my friend Kilandra wouldn't believe me! And that just made my report on Switzerland be so much more fun to do!

Bye Grand Mage!

Dragonheart said...

I think you have a pretty big fan base here in america. Who doesn't like a sarcastic-amazing-too-good-for-words-because-he's-that-awesome Skeleton Detective, and his fighting accessory Valkyrie Cain?

Derek Landy said...

Georgina- that is so incredibly APT.

NOM Ominous said...

The first reason I ever commented on this blog was because I was into making Lego movies and I wanted to make a Skulduggery one.
Then I got scared because I'd have to find the right voices for them, so I never really got to do anything. It was going to be a trailer or something for book one... And it would take FO EVAH

Anonymous said...

It's LOYAL COMBAT ACCESSORY.

and the answer is: The idiots who won't read them.

Dragonheart said...

They wouldn't let him write the script?!!!!! *Shocked*

Unknown said...

So Derek, how is your day going?

Anonymous said...

Thrust, yes it would...


Derek, how long was it between when Skulduggery came back to life(or unlife, whatever) and when he became Lord Vile?

Dragonheart said...

I'm tired.
Bye peeps!

Unknown said...

Vile came after he was revived. Because the reason he became vile was because he was so angry with the world that the 2 main reasons he stayed alive was dead.

Unknown said...

Why is my computer so obnoxious? The Spinning Wheel of Doom keeps appearing.

Unknown said...

*Pouts and toddles off to play AC 3*

Unknown said...

Bye Dragonheart!

NOM Ominous said...

everyone asks how and when Skulduggery took his name, since it's MADE for a skeleton. The irony if it was taken before.

Unknown said...

NOOO!!! NOT THE SPINING WHEEL OF DOOM!!!!

Anonymous said...

Vinette, but there must have been SOME space between because


SPOILERS!



Alternate dimension China recognised him as a skeleton even though he was still Vile over there.

Derek Landy said...

Okay, answer a few more questions before I go...

Vinette- my day has been fine, thank you! Didn't get as much work done as I'd have liked (I've been on this blog for the last two hours!) but other than that, it's all good!

Kestrel- I'm not gonna say how long that took...! It'll probably be revealed in one of the books though...

Okay, and now I'm logging off for the night!

Dragonheart said...

1 sec before I go... Doesn't Skulduggery mean Trickery? or something of the sort?

Unknown said...

He probally took his name like Val - and most others- did. soon after the discovery he took it because he knew he would have been controled.
