haha this made my day! and what did Laura/ your sisters get you for Christmas?!
and err.. where did you find this?
*stares at kitty* ...DEREK! HOW COULD YOU! *starts to laugh out loud in crowd of people infront of resteraunt*Oops. MY POSITIONS BEEN GIVEN AWAY! RUUUUUN!!
This...is my new screensaver.
Mr. Landy, I have a question.Why is it that only the first three books are released over here in America? I've read all five books, but that's because my friend (Mar-Chu, actually) ordered the last two and let me borrow them. I find it strange because you're working on book six. Does it have something to do with the popularity of the books?
i know! i had to order mine online and i HATED the wait *it was like three days but really im not THAT patient! :P*
Im...trying to think of a question that noone has ever asked before...-Does Scapegrace have any family?-What is Tanith's favorite icecream flavor?-what is valkyie's opinion on poisonous frogs?
Em- my sisters got me... er... okay, I've completely forgotten what they got me, but I'll find out and tell you! And Laura got me... um... oh, actually, she got me a few things, including this aftershave that she LOVES and I have to admit, is pretty nice...Thalia- it is indeed to do with the popularity of the books over in the US. Basically, we have to find a way to spread the word and drive up sales, and then it'll be worth a publisher's time releasing the new ones.Skulgirl- Carol and Crystal are in the new book, but they're not as annoying as they once were, I promise.Well, okay, they are, but in a totally different way.I haven't decided on the baby's name yet...I got into SG-1 back when it had Colonel O'Neill, but when he left I kinda lost interest.And you shall know the title of Book 6 SOON!
SAME HERE!!! i HATED when O'Neil lef us! got really sad...can we at least know what some of the chapter says?!?!?!??!
Ahem. Mar-Chu-Scapegrace has no family.Cookies and Cream.She respects their right to be poisonous, even if she doesn't agree with it.
PLEASE!!! can you post ONE!! chapter of book six!!! pRETTY PLEASE!!!
Ah. Thank you Mr. Landy for clearing that up.
DEREK!!! CAN YOU PRETTY PRETTY PLEASE POST AT LEAST ONE CHAPTER!!!!!

New post on Bio-rama, all followers of Bio-rama should read it!http://thespotforbios.blogspot.com/2011/03/things-of-note-please-read.html
i didnt post my bio, kallista did so can i still tag it?
I'll let Mar know. She posted my bio.
Nope, either you have Kallista tag it for you, or i can do it now if you want, I'm doing all of my OC's
wait what would you tag it with?
i dunno, why don't you read though and write out some tags so i can post them for you, because you need to be an author to edit posts
oh umm wait one sec whilst i finish my homework
ok, no problem
I go to go. Bye all!
*looks up from rapid writing* BYE THALIA!!
*comes marching back in triumphantly* I HAVE A COOKIE! :D
Oh Golden Mystical God! One day, would it be possible for you to do a group chat with us, your humble minions? I know a few authors do those once in a while and they are super awesome:)
Thats a great idea Em!
I <3 that photo. The cat looks like he's about to turn into a cobra and bite someone. :)Minion Night: Signing off
Hmmm....*eyebrow twitches*In the past, I have been curteous and have alerted other bloggers that Derek has posted again. I kept checking the blog to see if anyone was on. It never came to me that Derek has posted again. As a result, I have missed being on at the same time he was. Yeah, I'm a little mad right now. At myself and just the fact I was was left in the dark. i'll brb. I'm going to go now and leave a note for the others.
awwww, I'm sorry Kallista *hugs* i should have left a comment
i have to go nowbyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!goodnight y'all!
@ Derek: *snort* Goofball.@ Skulgirl, re: "THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS OVER OBSESSED!"Two words: Edward. Cullen.@ Kallista: Aw. :-( *hugs* Be back in probably less than hour.
Awww....sorry I missed you Lizzy!*hugs her back*
I wonder if you'll read this... I am in the first 100, after all.This is a serious question about my writing, Derek. How do I go about publishing my book? It's almost finished, and I have no idea how to contact an editor or a publisher or anything. Because I'm fairly young (15) it's definately going to be harder to become a published author than it would be for an adult, but if you could give me any tips, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, goodbye.PS. Love the picture, by the way. Poor cat.
Alexandere. Derek is really good at seeing all the comments directed at him. :DI hope you get your book published!
OMG. My day has just been made even better... and I didn't think that was possible. XDI love ya Derek! In a none creepy kind of way of course. :D
I love ya Derek too!In a creepy way.I'm joking, I'm joking...I think.AND YOU DID NOT SAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!!GAH MY LIFE IS NO LONGER WORTH LIVING!!!!!!...I'm gonna go write my book now.106,375 words, 366 pages!!!Go me.
*wanders in*Anyone on?
Awww....Don't say that Alexandre. It's our fault for taking up all the space on Derek's blog. He could still say happy belated birthday! Way to go on your book. Maybe someday I'll be at that point to attempt writing a book. :)
Thalia? You still around?
Hey Thalia! :DAre you doing any writing?
Yep! I'm working on Part 2 of Hathor.
Awesome! I hope you are having a better time then I am. I keep doing what ever I can to avoid working on my fanfic. :P
I'm having a hard time. I know what I want to happen, but I don't know how to put it into words.
I left a comment for Mar-Chu on Derek's last post. If you-well, not see, exactly, but you know what I mean, please let her know. Erm. 'K, bye.
I'll be sure to inform her.
Awww....I missed Lily! :(@ThaliaI know what you mean. That's the same problem I'm having.
Hello Mr. Landy,I thoroughly enjoy the Skulduggery books, and am eagerly anticipating the next. Upon receipt of it, I will promptly saddle my long-suffering husband with our twin toddlers, and take off for parts unknown - to read and enjoy it in peace!On another note: I've read that Warner Bros. has the rights to a film version, and mention has been made of a live-action film. I don't know how much input you may have into such a project, but just in case, I wanted to put forth the suggestion of Jude Law as the voice of Skulduggery Pleasant.When I read your books, I imagine that Skulduggery sounds like Mr. Law, and as Mr. Law is aging out of his previous calibre of 'movie star' looks, he may well jump at the chance to be associated with such a hot property as I expect the eventual Skulduggery film to be. He can probably be had quite cheaply at that point, and would therefore be an 'easy sell' to the studio higher-ups as a cost-effective and crowd-pleasing choice for a voice actor.Just a thought...Sincerely,Lara N.
Oooooooh! My head hurts! I think I'm going to bed now. :P
Good night Kallista! I think I might do the same.
*pops back in*Sorry. Forgot to say goodnight!*waves crazily*Goodnight Miss Thalia!XDDD
G'night, Kallista! Anyone else still here?
That'd be a "no", then.
'sok, I can entertain myself.Silly question! for Mr. Landy :How much time, let's say in minutes/day, do you spend looking at LOLcats?A little less silly:Cell phones are pretty ubiquitous in SP's world, but I don't think I've seen a computer even mentioned - I could be wrong on that, but I can't think of one right now. Where are the computers? A world without email - inconceivable!Oh! Also, where does Ghastly get his fabric? I want some.... oh. Then I also need to know how he cuts and sews it. Do you have any information on that?
lol, one of the best post ever
HAHAHAHAHA THAT IS SOOO FUNNYDEREK YOU ARE THE GREATEST YOU HAVE BRIGHTENED MY DAY

Bahahahahaahha, lolcats.http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6763755/1/An_Adventure_Worth_A_Thousand_Lifetimes^ A link to my Skuttlebug Fanfic, its pretty much awesome. I think it should be seen by all respectable Skul-man fans :D
You need to do more of these Just Because posts ;Dhttp://www.funnyjunksite.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/04/funny_cat_pictures_092.jpg
Em- a group chat is a wonderful, if hugely daunting, idea...! I don't know how I'd cope with all you lunatics babbling away at once, but I'll mention it to my publishers as something we might do around publication.Alexandre- happy belated birthday! My one piece of advice for new writers is to buy the Writer's Yearbook from any good bookshop. It lists the contact info for every publisher and agent, and the kind of stuff they're interested in. It also takes you through what you need to do when you send something off. But the essential thing to remember is to forget about publishers for the time being- focus on the agent. Get the agent, and the agent will get you the publisher. The agent will be your guard dog and your attack dog. YOU'LL NEED AN AGENT!Lara N- the rights WERE with Warners, but they've reverted back to me and I'm holding onto them for another few months, until I have time to go through the LA process all over again. That said, Jude Law DOES have an exceptionally smooth voice.Ann Marie- You're quite right, I don't think I've mentioned computers yet...! If it helps, in the new book Val uses the internet on her phone to look up pictures of Dingoes. Oh, and Ghastly gets his fabric from the, er, Fabric Elves.Skulduggery Boy- Don't worry, I'm constantly writing! There'll be nine books in all!Nyx- Gordon did have a taken name, and I have it written down here SOMEWHERE, but I can't find it...!Scapegrace's power is the power to be dim.
Ah! A comment! Staying up late reading fanfic paid off!I will so regret this tomorrow.Good morning, Mr. Landy!And goodnight.omg. Dingoes! Hahahaha. er.
Ooh, second part not so useful. Fabric elves? :-PJust for that I'm not apologizing for calling you a goofball. ;-)
*is impatiently counting down days to September*Ohh - I have a question! Will we ever find out what Skulduggery's Christmas present to Valkyrie (in Mortal Coil) would have been?
I had a question about SP...but i forgot it :( I've been re-reading all of the books, i'm up to The Faceless Ones. And Derek-are you still here? :(
A-HAH! I JUST REMEMBERED!In SP, there are a lot of car rides in the Bentley. And although the Bentley's pretty darn awesome, with Valkyrie in it, I would imagine that things would get extremely boring. For instance, the drive to the Aranmore Farm. For Skulduggery, fine, right? He's a skeleton, he meditates a lot, and so is used to doing almost nothing for large amounts of time.Valkyrie however-being a teenager and all-would be much more of a kind of fidgety person. I'm fifteen and the first thing i do whenever we have to drive absolutely ANYWHERE is take out my iPod. It calms me down, passes time, and holds a variety of my favorite songs.So, do you think that we will ever see Val get an iPod or MP3 player? Yes, sure, she now has the weight of possibly bringing the world to a terrifying end, but every now and then she might have time for it, you know?I'm not sure if this is going to be read or just ignored :/ Please answer, oh great Golden God.
i love the fact that he answered the questions but derek i am trying to write a story do you or any body else have any tips on how to go about making it longer and more interesting
*bursts with laughter* *falls off chair* *wipes tear from eye* Heh...heh...hmmrrrr...Ghastly gets fabric from the fabric elves? Thats just like at orchestra! The rosin fairy! She leaves rosin to all the good children! ...okay, now that i look at that that isnt really true. She only left us rosin ONCE, because....well....our class isnt the most well behaved class...and a lot of yelling goes on. On halloween when the teacher couldnt make it we ended up yelling at each other about what to do...the guy dressed as a banana was the one in the end who got a teacher...heh....good times....And...now i must say, or....ask, rather,...HOW MANY PEOPLE IN TOTAL DO YOU THINK WERE KILLED BY MEVOLENT?!?!And,...DO YOU NOT AGREE WITH ME WHEN I SAY THAT THE NA-VI (or however you spell it) FROM AVATAR ARE LIKE NINE FOOT SMURFS?!!
Little cain- one word. DETAIL! I value detail. Its something i always look for...!
Little cain-But you should still ask other people. Like master derek. And...the president. Yes, thats right...im not feeling the least bit SERIOUS right now...heh....
Awwwww! That poor screaming cat!!!xD
Internet has been working off and on a lot lately. That's one reason I haven't been around much. Also, there was a big, short storm last night. It was really crazy. Sheets of rain, omega wind, thunder and lightening like crazy, and HAIL! Can you believe it?!?! HAIL!?!?? It was HOT ALL day yesterday! I mean, not crazy hot, but, like, 68-75 degrees Fahrenheit. I think anyway, I didn't actually check the temperature, but it definitely didn't seem cold enough to HAIL!
It didn't last too long, though, fortunately, and the longest power outage lasted for about 5 seconds. It just kept blinking when thunder hit. :] That was good.
so long since i've been on hereypu me
I'M ON I'M ON!
wait... so i havent been on in absolutely AGES and when i come on nobody else is?
well, ime ti update my profile
*leaps in* HIYAAAAA!
