Let Them Eat Cake

Great first weekend of the tour. I started off with a signing in Liffey Valley in Dublin, then went all over London, signing merrily. On Wednesday I'm appearing at the Mountains to the Sea festival in Dublin. Last year I talked about the movies that had influenced the books, but this year is going to be a completely different, one-off event. Should be funny...

Reaction to the book is exactly what I'd been hoping for — shock and AWE. There have been MANY threats of violence and decapitation made against me, which I thoroughly deserve for what I've put you through.

All in all, people have been very good about not spoiling it for others, but dear god, there have been some exceptions. A few things on the Facebook page, a lot of stuff on Twitter, some stuff on Tumblr, and one of the very first Amazon reviews has a major spoiler. I don't understand the need to spoil things for others or to seek out spoilers for yourself, and I really can't understand why anyone would casually mention a plot twist without realising it could ruin things for others.

Basically, beware of the internet, Minions.

But on a lighter note, Orla came to a signing on Saturday and she gave me a photograph of the cake she'd had for her birthday.

Check it OUT.

oh my god am i first

still have to order the book, so i'm hoping i don't run into any spoilers

The Grave of a Coward said...

I haven't gotten the book yet, but I just want to say, Derek, that I've been an Ameriminion for YEARS, and I've got all your books, including jumping through a lot of hoops to get the one for world book day. I follow your blog, though I've never commented on it before, so you don't know I exist, and all my friends hate me because I never stop yapping about Skulduggery Pleasant. You're awesome, Derek, and I always enter all the contests on the website.
Ameriminion out!

Yay read post time

Xanna said...

I remember when I read the first book. I was expecting a nice, innocent little series about the magical adventures of Stephanie and her skeleton friend. Why did you have to warp it until it became a traumatising story of characters you love being killed off without a second thought...

Noelle said...

YAY THANK YOU DEREK

Oh good my mother was seriously questioning my sanity after I complained that we needed a 'fresh post'.

*laughs evilly*

Xanna said...

I can't believe there's only one more left to go... It's going to be an unhappy ending isn't it...? Because that's what you like doing Derek... The world will be saved but out heroes and heroines will be left to rot somewhere...

Noelle said...

*giggles at Dau*

:P

DEREK said we can continue the Requiem here.

AFTERPARTIES GALORE, Y'ALL

Star Inkbright said...

I said this on the last post and I don't think people saw:


*is splattered wiht paint* ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

*finds paintball gun and fires at Adra*

Being Ez and Hunter takes a lot of being very not distant. :P Which is why they're not here. Might bring them on, though.

#ChaseForBookNine

Also - WHAT THE HELL, DAU??????? My way of saying it was a balFhawlgfawgl;vkewagvn that kind of rambled out, with me not bothering to put it into proper sense. :P *hugs* Your way was awesome. :) It was understandable. XD

My sibling: "The Dead man book should be out soon"

My Sibling: "AH how come I didn't know about it! And how come it's not a my school library!" *Sibling flops on my bed*
Me: "I don't know"
*My sibling leaves my room*

Karla said...

I'm not through the book yet, though I had LSODM since last monday. It takes me a little longer to read because I have to look up some words in the dictionary. (I'm German....)
But what I've already read is awesome and shocking at once, exactly what the Golden God said...

Is there any signing in Germany soon?

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

I still owe Croatoan a dance from last night....DEREK STILL NEEDS TO COME ON AND DANCE WITH A CERTAIN ELDER BEFORE SAID ELDER HAS A STERN TALK ON SATURDAY

Noelle said...

I swear to the god that I don't believe in that if any of you fuckers spoil this book for me I will never speak to you again.

Little shits.

*hits Star with another balloon

Star Inkbright said...

Star Inkbright said...

You know, before this Ball, I hated dresses.
But I've been having so much fun tripping over that I've decided I kind of like long ball dresses like this. XD

#ChaseForBookNine

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

Hi everyone!

#ChaseForBook9

Star Inkbright said...

@Eld: . . .
What on earth.
Why???

My mum would NEVER let me do that.
Okay, she DOES let me have the rest of the afternoon off when I have denist appointment, and she does let me stay off school when I'm sick until it's certain I'm better (this sounds obvious, but my friend threw up one morning and was driven into school even though she was already late EVEN THOUGH she was still feeling absolutely terrible, beacuse she wasn't allowed the day off even though she had THROWN UP), and, yeah.

*has totally forgotten what I was saying*

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

I hate flying ;( it's uncomfortable and scary

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

Wait, Lewis, the ball is technically over, but can I dance with you?

Star Inkbright said...

@Zaf: :( I hope you feel better soon . . .

@Ember: THen yay for you. :)

@Ember: Well BUY HEADPHONES! :)
I love my headphones. :)
Or buy more earphones.
EARPHONES ARE GOOD AT BREAKING.

Ink- I didnt expect it at all :O

She was all looking for the book she wrapped it up and gave it to me and let me have a day of school. Im not sure whether to be excited and happy, or worried that something bad is happening...

Im enjoying the moment either way.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Zaf, are you ok? *is back*

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

Thanks Brave!

Hi Ari!

Eldritch Blaze the Prince of Plants said...

RHY! you change your name D: *huggles* still not as good as when you changhed to oswald and youll always be my clara.

Noelle said...

((Right can I just say-

People are STILL SPOILING THINGS. I am so done right now.
First off: just because I'm in it doesn't mean that you get to deprive me of my first thoughts and excitement of reading it myself. Let me do that, even if you want to. You're being a dick.
Second: Even saying VAGUELY what happens without mentioning names is a spoiler because- HEY GUESS WHAT? I'M NOT STUPID AND I CAN MAKE INFERENCES DAMMIT.
Third: Don't spoil other character bits of my friends. I'm just as excited for them as for me.
Fourth: Fuck you if you do any of numbers 1-3.
Fifth- Your constant chatter about how good it was it how many emotions you have doesn't make the people who don't have it yet feet better. We get that you have emotions and we can be glad for you but that isn't making us feel better. There's a spoiler post for that.
Sixth: if you say something happened and then said you were joking, I will skin you and feed you to wild dogs because I now have to sit in agonising wait for the damn book to find out.
Seventh:
Don't spoil.
Don't even talk to me about a book.
At all,
I'm trying hard- as are many others, so don't spoil a single god damn thing.


I am not sorry for cursing- you all can deal with it.

That is all))

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Ugh, missing school because of sick... *makes face* Last year was awful for me. I missed, like, 36 days, and another 10 days I came in really late. I eventually adopted a 3 throw-up rule, where I wouldn't go to the nurse to leave unless I'd already thrown up 3 times. I ended up teaching myself for, like, half the year, and I handed everything in late and my pile of unfinished tests was just endless... I am never getting sick again... ((before that year, I'd never missed more than a day every year))

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

Hey Ari! *hugs her* I am so pissed with myself I missed my oppurtunity to dance with Niccolo

Lewis Ravenscroft / Rhydian Blake said...

Hi Ed!

#ChaseForBook9

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*is scrolling through past comments* Ugh, overpowering... Do you guys think Niccolo is overpowered/god-modded/whatever-you-happen-to-call it? I figured the weaknesses he has make up for the names, and the names do have some limitations (which is why he mostly just sticks to a few), but it's still sketchy... Thoughts?

#Chaseforbook9

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

Adra

I literally have no idea what you just said

Noelle said...

I think he's brooding. *nods*

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

I missed the opportunity to change into a different dress •sulks•

HEY ELD!! *tacklehugs*

Bbs!

Hi Adra!

Yes but now we're all guessing *hisses*

#ChaseForBook9

Eldritch Blaze the Prince of Plants said...

no more on book.

got it.

I wanna make a movie script.

i dunno why, but i want to re read the first book and make a sample movie script thing of the first few chapters and send it to derek and be like

'Make me your holy director cause im tottaly not a stalker from australia who is still in school or anything!'

thatd be awesome.

Noelle said...

Right- just drop it.


Noelle said...

Hi Lewis.

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

Quickly before I poof:

@Eld: Are you by any chance going to a writers thingy tomorrow in Freo???

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

•flails•

Okay I'm sorry guys I'll shut up

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

NO MISSY DON'T POOF!

YOU JUST GOT HERE!

(Retrieving umbrellas)

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

I think sometimes he is a bit god-like but usually I'm fine I think he is fine how he is because like any person who knows their true name the name is gonna cause problems we saw it clearly with Alastair but maybe when he's on every once in a while a name could break the barrier and try to take over even briefly we all know Niccolo's self control is amazing so like me he would regain control easily but still it'd be cool to see him have some issues with names where we can see it ourselves

Eldritch Blaze the Prince of Plants said...

No. sorry Cain :(

ill be at hockey tomorow.

Emerald Melody said...

September, even if you say someone has died or anything. That's still a spoiler because I'm still reading the book and no one has died on me yet.

Just everyone please be vigilant. You will know when someone has finished the book because they will either ask you, can we talk about the book.

Just please... or Adra will kill you lol

shhhh.

no.

*pats zaf again*

there there

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Well, there's an opening for names to break through for as long as we're not linked. And if I'm unconscious. Aside from that, though, I've been successful at keeping them back. Some of them are actually really great people, though- precious few, but they're in there- so he might even just let them out now and then.

#ChaseForBook9

Eldritch Blaze the Prince of Plants said...

i think i need to sleep now. im going insane. NIGHT EVERYONE HOPEFULLY ILL BE MARRIED TO MYSELF BY MORNING.

no.

☂That's a good question.☂

☂I'll think of something.☂

I'd like to meet one of the good ones maybe...that would give him control back...not during the parties though because I still kinda owe him a dance from last night...*nods*

*walks towards exploding reactor core on spaceship orbiting the earth*

Bye Eld!

But of course everyone's favourite is the worst one. Naturally.


Jesus we're weird.

SPEAKING OF

YOU STILL OWE ME THAT STORY

EVEN IF ITS SLOPPILY PUT TOGETHER I JUST WANNA KNOW *cries*

Edward Fletcher said...

*rewires core so it misses earth, flames swallowing the ship*

Noelle said...

Omfg Ed what

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

*wanders back on, eating Skittles*
Heyyyyyyy :3

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*shrugs* We've spoken with them, every now and then. One of them tried to hide me when Alastair stole my consciousness. That didn't work so well, obviously, but it's the thought that counts, right? And this is another part of the reason Niccolo feels so guilty all the time- a few of the names he stole deserved great things, much better than what they got. His ability to turn others to stone with earth comes from a guy who spent his whole life- hundreds of years- intensely researching earth magic, working on a way to reverse its effects so he could bring people back. And then one day somebody comes and steals his name and traps him with all these sadistic monsters and uses his power to hurt people. That... You know, it's not so fun to think about.

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

☂Wbd, just in case you hadn't guessed.☂

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Oh! On a random note, I've realized that if I died, in real life, for whatever reason (not that I'm planning anything, just, you know, life is precious and shouldn't be taken for granted), you guys would have no way of knowing. So unless I say that I'll be gone for a month or longer, if I haven't said anything to any of you guys in a month, assume I'm dead.

Okay Ed... We'll miss you!!

Hi/bye to anyone who has arrived/left! I am having issues keeping track at the moment, sorry!

Noelle said...

Aretha...

Oh my god.

"Just assume that I'm dead" the twisted side of me is forcing me to laugh to hard right now.
Sorry.

I figure that if I died I'd make my mom tell Val who would tell you guys because my mom has Val's mom's number and she knows to burn me with skulduggery pleasant

Edward Fletcher said...

(this is my leaving now) *ships burns through the wreckage drifting through space* goodbye, for a while

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

SLEEP IS FOR THE WEAKKKKKKKKKKK
(although I really do need to get to bed earlier :/)

Wbd, looking for new backgrounds, then I'll sleep. Maybe.

Noelle said...

Bye Edward! *waves*

gods, we have to tell Snow.

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

☂Oh my god, Adra, I had the exact same thought a couple of days ago.☂

Alastair Cruciatus said...

No, it's fine. You can laugh. I'm sort of comfortable with the idea of death, myself. Not that I'd wish it upon myself, just- I understand it'll happen someday, somehow, and I really can't take any day I spend alive for granted. And I think death can be a fun thing to laugh at, at the right time. You're good. :)
My parents don't know I talk to you guys this much, so... Yeah, they know I have a group of people I write fanfic with, and that we talk sometimes, but definitely not this much.

Bye, Ed! We'll all miss you!! *hugs*

Vinette would tell you guys if I died and I told my mother to bury me with my SP books and the picture of Ravel on the trading card :P and I told her to mention I would end up haunting Derek in his sleep, I say that because I may die from LSODM...

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

☂Okay, if you don't here from me in a week, I'm dead, because I always come on here when I stopover or when I land.☂

Noelle said...

Ah.

My mom know all about you guys.

*laughs* yeah... I TELL her STORIES

She fangirls about SP because I basically have told her everything and she fangirls over my fangirl and ARGH. IT IS GREAT

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Marina would probably tell you guys if I was dead, but I'm not going to rely on her to do that because I think it'd be sort of mean, and I don't want her to have to. So yeah, if no one has heard from me in a month, just assume. Unless I said I'd be gone.

#ChaseForBook9

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

HEAR

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

If my mom knew I was on here or that I wrote fanfictions, she'd never forgive me.

Noelle said...

EW. Buried. How about no.

I want to be cremated, tossed off a cliff in India into a river or something, scatter in the wind,

Then I want my other half to be shot out into space with Gene Roddenberry

Alastair Cruciatus said...

I was going to make it two weeks, but I do become insanely busy sometimes- like, really insanely busy- and I'm pretty sure at the end of last year I disappeared for more than two weeks, and I wasn't dead. So it's a month.

#ChaseForBook9

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

If she knew I was on the ☂☂☂INTERNET☂☂☂, for that matter.

You guys are lucky.

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

We talk about death and I'm the only Necromancer on I think...*has hand go to my necklace*

Noelle said...

*calmly dances lightly on her feet across the terrace, humming a slow tune*

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

☂I want my head to be buried, my arms to be cremated and put in lockets for my loved ones, and the rest of me to be used for scientific experiments.☂

Alastair Cruciatus said...

My parents think it's great that I have a dedicated fanfic group. But I'm not sure they'd be comfortable with exactly how close I am to some of you, just for my own safety, because internet safety and all that.

#ChaseforBook9

Noelle said...

((Ahem I'm the only Alchemist- WOOHOO. And yeah if I were to die, I wouldn't care. I don't want to die, but if I were to, it wouldn't be a big deal))

Noelle said...

((How do you all know we aren't already dead and our dreams and stories are from our former lives in different places?))

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

*tackles Ari* Well I know if I ever get the chance I'm driving to where you live! *grins* I gotta meet the epc person who created Niccolo...even if I can never date him

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Speaking of fanfic... You guys have literally no idea how much Nikola Tesla happens when no one is watching (just talking and thinking to each other and it's actually sort of fluffy in a dark way a lot of the time), and I just think it's so hilarious, because so many people ship it now, and they haven't even seen, like, anything. (And no, I don't mean we've been kissing each other or anything like that. I mean, did you see him last night? Yeah no. But there was so much fluff and I never write fluff and you guys just missed it all because you didn't even know it was there!!)

#ChaseForBook9

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

Ari....please....I feel my heart crushing further

Noelle said...

*stops dancing for a second to throw a balloon of paint at Ari* NO STOP.

*continues dancing, humming louder*

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

UGH I MUST NOW SLEEP

NIGHT ALLLLLLLLL!!! *hugs*

Noelle said...

Night Cainalain

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

Night Aussie!

Alastair Cruciatus said...

((Points to Adra's comment about dying ^ Yes! I'm the same! So few people understand that! I do have a lot to live for, though- things to accomplish, people to talk to, and all that- so if I had the choice I'd fight hard to keep my life. But if I lost it, you know, I'd be ok with that. Death is just a thing that happens, and you can't stop it. I'm not ok with suicide, though, and I'd be a total wreck if any of my friends died. So don't any of you get ideas. *stares pointedly at Death* *doesn't care that she's not here*))

#ChaseforBook9

Noelle said...

Preach.

*nods*
*stops dancing for a moment to look up at the sky*

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

Its like how we Necromancers believe, death is part of life. I was taught early on as a child (ooh if you knew who taught Zaf in the Temple it'd br shocking)

Alastair Cruciatus said...

((I meant that OOC- sorry, Zaf!! *hugs*))

Bye, Cain!

Zaf, I can just imagine if we met- Niccolo would be talking in my head and I'd just be, like, a translator. I probably wouldn't even say any more to you than 'hi' and 'bye' and 'you're so awesome', and I'd spend the whole time telling you what he was saying. XD

#ChaseForBook9

Noelle said...

I'll be there to record it all

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

Lol! I am surprised Niccolo would talk to me...*blushes* He is...oh I cant say it I can but...we all know i like him so its shocking he'd get you to translate

Alastair Cruciatus said...

YESSSS!! And then we'd all go in the pool and play volleyball (pool volleyball is so fun because everyone gets way too into it), and then we'd make s'mores over the fire pit, and then eat them in the hot tub. By the way, I'm so hosting one of the afterparties, and that's what we're going to do in it. I'll give you guys a picture of my yard and everything. :)

#ChaseForBook9

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Of course he'd talk to you! He'd be thrilled to talk to any of you! He doesn't come here because I force him to, you know. I mean, he did initially, but not anymore.

#ChaseForBook9

Noelle said...

Okay lol that's cool. *laughs*

And if we get mugged I'll proudly scream and run behind you!

I kid, scream in surprise, then beat some shit up because I have magic Southern powers

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

Oh! Well he still itrigues me! Always does you know Ari you need Skype so we can Skype! We have to it is a must *grins* I probably would terrify Niccolo he would never have guessed what I look like

Eve the ROCK said...

Is the Ball still on? *twirls unsurely*

By the way, I was joking about giving spoilers. I would never talk about it until maybe three months after. Maybe. I probably shouldn't even joke about it, though, I can understand how frustrating it is to make sure no one becomes a selfish idiot in front of your virtual face. :P

Noelle said...

Or google hangouts... ^.^

And okay Eve :)
