Short Story Collection

Ah, Saturday night... what would you be without a title announcement?

I should have announced this yesterday, to be honest, but I was in Swindon, in England, doing writerly things like chatting to 600 people, signing all their books, and then travelling on to the WH Smith head office and signing 500 copies of LSODM, so you'll forgive me if I was a tad... distracted.

But, without further ado, to those who have not yet heard, the title of the short story collection out next summer is...

Armageddon-Outta-Here.

Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!

I swear to god, I never thought Harper Collins would agree to this. My first instinct was to call it Tales of the Dead Men, but that wouldn't have been accurate because there'd probably only be one or two stories featuring the Dead Men — not enough to warrant a title.

Harper came back with The World of Skulduggery Pleasant, which is, let's face it, a title far too boring to exist.

I  suggested Armageddon-Outta-Here as a joke, expecting everyone to dismiss it. But the more I thought about it, the more I said it in my head, the more I loved it. And suddenly I became determined to be the writer who has a book with THAT title. 

Amusingly, Harper Collins agreed. And I couldn't be happier. 

And if that wasn't awesome enough, we should actually have a cover reveal early next month for you to gawp at. Could I BE any nicer to you?

No. The answer is no.

Hey Star!:)


Sorry if I'm distant; I'm writing for NaNo.

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

I try to make my chapter titles amusing as much as I can . . . I think they're all more Hunter-like jokes, though, which is fine as the story's about him. :)

I just use Hunter as an outlet to tell my worst jokes ever. XD

ALL MY SCHOOL FRIENDS WILL BE HEARING ABOUT THIS TITLE ALL MONDAY, DEREK. :)

AND I HAVE TO TELL MY MUM. *nods*

Thanks, Derek. :)

Sparky Braginski said...

*hisses under my breath*

Proof-reading is really hard when you're struggling to keep your eyes open and you have a cold...

General Luciana Clover Scáth/Livi Delicae; Leader Of the New Land Of Stickers; Prophet Of The New Order (AKA the Insane Queen Of the Rainbow People); Grand Mage of Skuttlebuggia said...

It's a form of Yorkshire slang, apparently. But has slowly become more accepted in conversation, making it a colloquial expression, just like mardy, which was made famous by a song.

Linguistics truly are incredible... :)

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

I'm now scared I have my phone and I'm shaking

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

yeah, should you be up this early, Sparky? :/
*gives her tea and a heater*

Sparky Braginski said...

*rubs eyes and takes the tea*

It's 8:30 in the morning, I've already been awake for two hours.

And I really need to get this done, I wrote like 4,100 words yesterday but I didn't proof any of them.

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

Ah okay wow Sparky

Emerald Melody said...

Yeah Ads, the judge threw the whole thing out on the grounds that Chase had married before his passing.

The bitch didn't know that me and him had married :)

Sparx has a bad habit of getting up earlier than anyone else seems to.

It's scary how early she wakes up...!




I'M SO ANNOYED. I CAN'T GO SEE MCBUSTED BECAUSE BOTH NIGHTS SOLD OUT:(

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

Hi Lantern! :)

. . . Even though I think you said hi.

THERE IS NO LAW AGAINST SAYING HI TO YOU AS MANY TIMES AS I WANT. :)

Haha, I imagined this the other . . . week:

Hunter: Hello, Fabi. We haven't met, have we? Nice to meet you. :)

Fabi: Nice to meet you too. :-)

Ez: *frowns* Yes, you have met.

Hunter: *frowns* No, we haven't.

Ez: . . . Uh, yeah you have.

Fabi: I'm pretty sure we haven't.

Hunter: . . . Uh, no we haven't.

Ez: Come on. You see Fabi all the time. /I/ see Fabi all the time, and you're here more than me.

Hunter: *frowns* Who's Fabi?

Ez: FABI. *points to Fabi*

Fabi: *waves*

Hunter: Oh, there's a Fabi! :) Nice to meet you, Fabi!

Fabi: Nice to meet you too. :-)

Ez: You just MET the Fabi.

Hunter: . . . No, I didn't.

Ez: *gives odd look* Do you have short-term memory loss or something? I mean, if both of you suddenly developed it that'd be a little odd, but . . .

Someone, or possibly Star: Stranger things have happened, and continue to do so with alarming regularity.

Hunter: *frowns* Both of us? Who's us?

Ez: You and Fabi.

Hunter: Fabi? Who's Fabi?

Ez: *facepalms* *gives up*

Congrats, Em. :)

General Luciana Clover Scáth/Livi Delicae; Leader Of the New Land Of Stickers; Prophet Of The New Order (AKA the Insane Queen Of the Rainbow People); Grand Mage of Skuttlebuggia said...

I'm writing for NaNo. I've got another 800 words to write to stop myself from falling behind.

I've been really busy lately...

And a scene between Lynxia and Xavier almost turned to smut earlier... That could have been awkward. Instead, it's very suggestive. Why do my friends convince me to do stupid things like this?!

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

I don't have time for NaNo...

Instead, I've taken it upon myself to write that Tadra date that I was supposed to do a while back...

It's no novel, but it makes me happy :)

Sparky Braginski said...

I entered NaNo but dropped it so quickly it's not even funny.

But I have been writing a lot.

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

Hmm. Well, I'm not doing NaNoWriMo (of course that's a word spellcheck fuck you), but I've written asomething approaching 30,000 words this month so far, so I don't think I would have done too badly . . . :P

I think I wouldn't write as well if I was forced to, though.

#ChaseForBookNine

General Luciana Clover Scáth/Livi Delicae; Leader Of the New Land Of Stickers; Prophet Of The New Order (AKA the Insane Queen Of the Rainbow People); Grand Mage of Skuttlebuggia said...

NaNo is stressing me the hell out.

But the moment I get to fifty thousand, I will bloody sCREAM. Like full on scream at someone. I'd run to Tom's house and scream at him until I go blue in the face, purely because it'd be one of the biggest achievements ever, for me. I need to do it.

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

I miss writing...

When I write stuff, it's really deep, usually.

But I have loads of ideas all the time. I just wish I had time outside of school and school work to do...

Well, anything, actually

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

@Mushroom: :) *hugs*

You'll do it. :) I believe in you. You'll get radioactive milkshakes.

. . . Sorry, it's something Hunter and Ez say. They say they'll invent radioactive milkshakes, but they never will, it's just a way of saying, we'll make it through, we'll be alive and have enough downtime to do ridiculous things like that, it'll all be okay, that malarkey. :)

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

Goodbye friends who are leaving! *waves*

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

@Lantern: Yay! Sorting out plot! :)

(Sorry, I can only really notice on thing at a time.)

Like, when there are multiple plots at once, I only notice the other one about halfway through because without noticing it I've been just ignoring that one, and I have to go back, and then I start ignoring the other one . . .

You know when you have that video that has these people throwing a ball around and it tells you to count how many passes the white team make, and then halfway through this person in a bear costume wanders into the middle of the game and wanders out again, and at the end it says "The answer was *insert number Star's forgotten*.
But did you see the bear?"

And I NEVER fucking see the bear!

The first time I didn't, and the second time, which was years later so I'd forgotten about the first time (well, I remembered the test. I just didn't remember the bear part), I missed the bear again, and the third time, which was months later, I missed it AGAIN!
The second time, people were saying "Oh look, there's a bear", and I STILL didn't notice. :P

I have selective attention. I focus on one thing and just stop paying attention to everything else.

Like when I start thinking about something in a lesson, I stop listening.

And I can't write and talk simultaneously. :P

#ChaseForBookNine

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

. . . Actually, they were saying "Oh look, there's a monkey" because they thought it was a monkey costume, but still . . . :P

It's disgusting how many people are rude to the Pope over Twitter

I mean, seriously revolting.

As far as the Catholic Church goes, what Pope Francis is doing is pretty revolutionary- how he says being gay is okay, and that being an atheist is okay, as long as you're doing good.

Like

Why would you attack him

Not to mention, he tries to be one with the people, by going out, making contact with them- not using the Popemobile, as John Paul II did.

Pope Francis is trying to bring people together

DON'T HURT HIM I KINDA THINK HE'S ADORABLE

I've been using the colours orange, red, crimson and pink so far on my card, AND MY FINGERS HAVE GONE ALL RED. *giggles*

Sorry:(
Would any other month, but I'll probably wake up dead any day soon. :P

Sparky Braginski said...

It means reading over it checking that my characters are in character, critiquing the writing and giving opinion on the quality of the plot if you're feeling nice.

It's a different job with different people.

I have a tendency to need five or six betas before I feel comfortable with a story.

Why am I not surprised.

I wouldn't need any time frame to have it back by, I just need someone to read it and go "Oh yeah they'd say that" or "No they'd never do that what the hell are you thinking".

I'm also very desperate, in case you hadn't noticed.

*is doing that thing where I say I'm going and then take ages to actually leave*

Last night I had a dream where we were in my English classroom and my English teacher was tgere but then it morphed the lessons and stuff were on an online blog-like thing which wad the same colours the classroom had been, and then my English teacher posted the lyrics to Danger Line by Avenged Sevenfold (to point oit how good it was or something and to tell us to do that in iur English) and I was so happy, I was like totally ecstatic and I remember reading the lyrics, SEEING the lyrics because apparently I know them well enoigh to picture them clearly in my dreams, and anyway, when I woke up I was just like WOAHHHHHH STAR YOU'RE OBSESSED. :)

Yeah, had to say that before I forgot. Slipknot have a song called Before I Forget.

*NOW leaves*

Sparky Braginski said...

Distant, working on my shipping chart...

... I don't know...

Probably the vegetable argument...

Sparky Braginski said...

Well, you're a turnip.

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

Hello Mara!

Maralie Lily Charm, Princess of the Flowers, Diana ❤ said...

...

That's basically how the vegetable argument starts.

But I think it's in Imp...


Hey Mara.

Wbd, talking to Flamage. Msd too... Tired ;-;

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

Okay Luce *nods*

I'm doing calligraphy....

Sparky Braginski said...

I'm drawing arrows between names, which is fun.

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

I've written a lot of people's names in calligraphy...

68 Blognames

Sparky Braginski said...

Cooooooool.

Fabi S. said...

Hiiiiii!

I like paint. :D

Having messy fingers is good for improving my general mood. Baking, too, only instead of paint, chocolate!

I haven't baked anything in agesssss! D:

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

Hi again, Fabwoo *hugs*

Fabi S. said...

Hi Adra! [hugs]

If I disappear, it's because of the whole acrylic paint/fingers/touch screen thing.

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

That's okay, Fabi *cuddles* We gotcha

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

I'm just here

Sparky Braginski said...

*blinks*

This chart is confusing...

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

YAY CHARTS

Sparky Braginski said...

You say that now, Adra...

Fabi S. said...

I'm basically doing reverse silhouettes, with white on black, for the four dancers and the bench, and then I'm going to fill in the color later. Most of my colored paints are semitransparent, and can't go on the black layer directly.

And then I'm gonna use the glossy stuff for the stage floor and the reflections.

:D

Um, sorry if my babbling annoys you. I'm just in a cheery mood for the first time in a while, so...

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

Why is it when I actually miss Niccolò he vanishes?

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

It's okay, Fabi!

That's a really cool idea, I wanna see it when you're done

Sparky Braginski said...

Oh, believe me, you guys will see this.

Sparky Braginski said...

Wait, I don't think I was the one being referred to then.

No matter.

Fabi S. said...

Because Ari has a life.

Considering how much free time I have, it'll either take a couple days or a couple months to finish...

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

^*points to what Fabi said*

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

*sighs* Why do I bother asking

Fabi S. said...

[Realizes that was probably meant as a rhetorical question]

[Oops]

Charts, statistics, martians...

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

Hmm.... *looks at computer* I need something good to draw, that I CAN draw...

Fabi S. said...

[Isn't sure if that's a rhetorical question, too]

[Decides to play it safe and not answer]

[Cheerfully sing-hums a song about how my thumb is currently a zebra.

#ChaseForBook9

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

I'm just sitting here unsure what to even do

Fabi S. said...

A zebra?

Toast?

Idk what you consider "good to draw."

I like to draw people playing the violin...

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

I mean...

I'm kinda bad at drawing. Good at designs, not so much drawings.

I'm good at faceless people, though...

And I really know how to do photography and acting, but..

not drawing

Sparky Braginski said...

Adra did you get the next bit?

Fabi S. said...

[Nods]

I really have trouble drawing things that stand still... Like bananas. I can never draw bananas. They always look weird.

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

No... Did you send it?


I'm going to draw a banana

Actually

no

I'm going to draw a fruit bowl with Trip running away in the distance because he stole all of the bananas little sneaker...

Fabi S. said...

XD

Brilliant.

I have to go now, apparently I'm holding everyone up and we need to go somewhere and do something, idk... :-/

Bye.

#ChaseForBook9

Sparky Braginski said...

Yeah, I sent it.

I'll send it again?

Sparky Braginski said...

Later, Fabi.

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

okay, that'll work. My internet has been screwy all night... I'm having email troubles.

Bye Fabri *hugs*

Sparky Braginski said...

You might need to click on the expand email button thing...
