A/NZ Tour Locations

Alrighty then, here we go.

New Zealand- from (roughly) the 8th to the 11th of August, I shall be visiting:

Auckland

Wellington

Christchurch


Australia- from (roughly) the 12th to the 21st, I shall be visiting:

Brisbane

Sydney

Melbourne

Adelaide

Perth


I know we have a few readers in Christchurch who read this blog, so I'm glad to be able to visit after missing out last time around. And I know most of you in Adelaide and Perth were CONVINCED I wasn't going to get anywhere near you (especially you guys in Perth) so, y'know... this tour's for you!

And now, because I realised whatever picture I post here also pops up on the Facebook page, I shall post another picture of Gina Carano. Because she's lovely.


And another of Ronda Rousey, keeping the "hand-wrap" theme going...


What do you mean they have nothing to do with what I've just posted?

Nixion Strange said...

Nixion Strange said...

I don't think Derek is going to talk this time...
MELBOUNRE

Miss Cain said...

Derek noticed Perth and Adelaide

ANOTHER reason why he is a EPIC author

Miss Cain said...

Derek, are you here??
or are you just laughing at our comments saying of course im epic??

Dancing Fire said...

*CELEBRATING DANCE*
YAY!!!

Nixion Strange said...

Derek, could you please say something to this?

I just lost a pet that was very dear to me. My cat. Have you ever lost a pet? What did you do? If you haven't, what would you do if you lost one of your pets?

Eve the ROCK said...

Aw. Oh well.

I wonder where he's going in Adelaide....where does he normally go for book signings? Book shops?

Eve the ROCK said...

Or maybe he's going to the festival theatre.... *giant shiny eyes for no reason*

Miss Cain said...

Derek, you are a bloody awesome man

just bloody awesome

when are you going to announce the winners of the awesomeness comp??

Miss Cain said...

book stores...

i think he is going to come to Westbooks

i like that shop

its has a Skulduggery in the shop window

an epic store...

Dancing Fire said...

*sigh* i wish Derek would come here and talk to us.
anyways, i gtg. bye!

Miss Cain said...

bye Fire!!

Miss Cain said...

yeah, Westbooks has a Skulduggery in the window

i want to go steal it

Eve the ROCK said...

Bye Fire!

Miss Cain, the winners won't be announced here. Itt be on the SP site.

Nixion Strange said...

I have no idea where he's going to come
Fed squre? The only book shop is Dymocks, so...
I dunno, mayeb you want to come to Dymocks. There's not much room for a SP mob, so I think you'd be coming to Fed Square

Nixion Strange said...

Bye Fire!

Eve the ROCK said...

He's go somewhere space, like Rundle Mall. Or something.

Miss Cain said...

true as Nix

except ive never been to Melbourne so i have NO idea

Eve, he also might announce it on his blog AS WELL AS the site

cant wait!!

*does awkward smile*

Eve the ROCK said...

*spacey

Eve the ROCK said...

No, he probably won't.

Nixion Strange said...

He doesn't mention things much on his blog
I'm still waiting for that other thing, with the meet Derek.

Nixion Strange said...

Yeah, he probably won't

Miss Cain said...

Westbooks has an area in the corner with HEAPS of space so that would probably be the place


YAY!!

Miss Cain said...

oh well

at least it will be on the site

Nixion Strange said...

Yeah, it might be on the site. It isn't always, esecpially not recently
Maybe I'll get an email telling me I've won

Miss Cain said...

i hate waiting

*sighs*

Eve the ROCK said...

When was it going to be on the site, Again?

Nixion Strange said...

I think the 29th?

Miss Cain said...

*checks email*

no mail

dammit

Miss Cain said...

the 29th??

WHERE did it say that??

Nixion Strange said...

14.The winner will be notified by email by Friday 22nd June 2012.

It doesn't say that they'll let everyone know

Nixion Strange said...

Here we are


17.You can find out who won by sending a stamped addressed envelope to Skulduggery short story competition, Marketing Dept, HarperCollins Children’s Book, 77-85 Fulham Palace Road, London W6 8JB or send an email to kids.marketing@harpercollins.co.uk with ‘Skulduggery short story competition’ in the subject bar after Friday 22nd June.

So they won't anounce it

Eve the ROCK said...

Yeah, but the story will be on the site

Nixion Strange said...

4.One winner and five runners up will have their stories listed on www.skulduggerypleasant.co.uk – there is no agreement that the winner’s story will be published physically or an ebook.


So even if 10 people win, only 6 will get their stories shown

Eve the ROCK said...

That's weird...

Miss Cain said...

damn

Miss Cain said...

thats stupid

Miss Cain said...

hello??

Eve the ROCK said...

Yup

Eve the ROCK said...

Hi!

Eve the ROCK said...

Cool picture/word :)

Miss Cain said...

Yay!!!

im not alone in the wide universe of Blogland!

Miss Cain said...

thanks

Eve the ROCK said...

Sorry, I was just finishing some homework. Shhhhh, don't tell anyone!!!&

Eve the ROCK said...

The wide universe of blogland is not that wide

You know, we don't really use the space anymore

Miss Cain said...

*shrugs*

im still a bit new so i might say stuff that means NOTHING at all

Miss Cain said...

or just random stuff

Eve the ROCK said...

If you had been here longer, you would get what I'm saying. See, there's a lake here, a forest there, a volcano somewhere around here...we don't appreciate the surroundings anymore. Cant say I miss it terribly.

Eve the ROCK said...

And we all say things that mean nothing at all

*panda*

Miss Cain said...

yeah

Eve the ROCK said...

Adelaide has a thing for words that are the same backwards. Let's see:

Glenelg
Rachael Leahcar
Hannah (lots of em)
Anna (lots of them too)

Eve the ROCK said...

Oh, and how can I forget?

EVE!

Miss Cain said...

so true Eve

(see, i spelt your name backwards)

Eve the ROCK said...

Derek, I can't WAIT for you to come to Adelaide!!!! I can't wait to meet you!!!!! Do you sign ANYTHING, or just books?

I wonder if I can bring a t shirt for him to sign... :P

Or maybe a...a.... A....hmm....

Oh! I know! He can sign my socks!!!

Eve the ROCK said...

Hehehehehe

Eve the ROCK said...

And I STILL want to know if you accept hugs, Mr. Landy!

Miss Cain said...

i want him to sign all my SP and....

Eve the ROCK said...

I don't WANNA go to school! I wanna stay here and be excited about the tour!

Miss Cain said...

something cool

that i have to think of

Miss Cain said...

yeah, i know Eve

Eve the ROCK said...

I'll bring Mortal Coil and Death Bringer for him to sign xD

Miss Cain said...

i will bring ALL of them then decide there

then i will bring something like...

MY NOTEBOOK!!!

Miss Cain said...

on the back of my notebook im getting people to sign it

(have no idea why)

and that would be AWESOME having the Golden God's signature ON MY NOTEBOOK!!!

Eve the ROCK said...

OH MY GOD

Miss Cain said...

yes Eve??

Miss Cain said...

Eve??

Eve the ROCK said...

*panda*

:O

Miss Cain said...

Eve the ROCK said...

Miss Cain said...

Eve the ROCK said...

I don't want to go to school. Have you ever dreamed of sleeping for 24 hours?

Eve the ROCK said...

Bye Miss Cain!

Eve the ROCK said...

Oh, and Derek, so you can see this

Zafira says hi!!!

Eve the ROCK said...

I mean, *clears throat*

DEREK!!! DEREK LANDY!! ZAFIRA SAYS HELLO!

Eve the ROCK said...

Miss Cain said...

I don't like being alone on Blogland...

Miss Cain said...

Miss Cain said...

Damn, I'm alone

Eve the ROCK said...

Eve the ROCK said...

Eve the ROCK said...

Eve the ROCK said...

Eve the ROCK said...

Fine...I'll leave then.... *starts to fade*

Eve the ROCK said...

Wait. Questions for Derek:

1. Do you accept hugs???

2. What do you sign besides books? Do you sign mandarins?

3. Do you remember me?

4. Are you actually reading those competition entries for the Sadistica Tortura stories?

Miss Cain said...

Sorry, was reading Nix and Mist

Rowena said...

Canberra's right between Sydney and Melbourne you could totally stop there! :( I guess you don't have time... oh well.. almost :'(

Eve the ROCK said...

No one at all? Not anyone hiding in the shadows? Possibly a griffin?

Rowena said...

Canberra's right between Sydney and Melbourne you could totally stop there! :( I guess you don't have time... oh well.. almost :'(

Miss Cain said...

Eve the ROCK said...

Hi Miss Cain!

Eve the ROCK said...

Eve the ROCK said...

Nananana

Miss Cain said...

It's my grandmas birthday today and I'm giving her her care tomorrow

It has SP sayings in it so i have to explain why 'Doors are for people with no imagination', who Derek Landy is, who Skulduggery Pleasant is

Joy

Zafira Kerias said...

O.o oh wells.

Derek will you talk to us? The Blog is the closest some of us get to actually talk to you....

Miss Cain said...

*card

Eve the ROCK said...

Hahahahahaha

She'll love it xD

Miss Cain said...

Hi Zaf!!

Eve the ROCK said...

Zafira, where do you live?

Miss Cain said...

I know
XD

Zafira Kerias said...

Hi!!!

And America.

Miss Cain said...

Derek
PLEASE come on

Zafira Kerias said...

That'd make my day it would and it only just started as i woke up bout 10 minutes ago

Eve the ROCK said...

Ah, okay

You know, if Derek talked here all the time, it wouldn't be a special thing

Miss Cain said...

True

Miss Cain said...

I'm thinking of making myself a name tag saying Miss Cain then wearing it when I go see Derek

He has said hi to me so maybe he will remember me

Zafira Kerias said...

True but hey i usually am asleep or eating or in school when he comments or posts. I am out of school so I guess i got lucky

Miss Cain said...

I'm in school when it's about 1am in Ireland so I'm normally here when Derek posts

Miss Cain said...

I think

Zafira Kerias said...

Im in school during the afternoon in Ireland and dont get home til evening. So, being off of school is helpful. I just woke up 2 something in the afternoon Irish time sooo

Miss Cain said...

*does happy dance*

I can't wait for Derek to come to Perth!!!!

Miss Cain said...

It's nine hours difference from Perth

Zafira Kerias said...

Hey I'm hoping eventually I'll meet him....so far the closest I get is the Blog and the letter my friends and I wrote. We actually sent it I think Friday. Yes, Friday. So there's something I did do.

If I ever got to meet Derek, well I'd have a nametag that says Zafira Kerias.

Miss Cain said...

Im also gonna get Derek to sign my iPad and show him some art I made on my iPad

It's of Darquesse and it's awesome

Livi said...

ohmigod.... he's coming to perth... he's coming to perth... *deep breathing*
and i finally worked out how to make comments on this site thing. feeling very chuffed with myself.
he's coming to perth... he's coming to perth...

Miss Cain said...

Dereks signature on my iPad...

Sweet

Miss Cain said...

Hi Livi!!

OMGG, you live in Perth!!

*hi fives Livi*

Miss Cain said...

Livi, I read your profile

You were born on October 14th!?

Me too!!

Livi said...

hey there:)
hey everyone, actually.

Zafira Kerias said...

Im the lonely American !!! Lol. Im on my iPad now. Im cursing myself. I did the Ten Times The Awesome contest. I had it all written my cousin who is an author read it and loved it. We go to upload it. 6 hours!!!! It refused to upload. I used Word! D:

Zafira Kerias said...

Hi!!

Livi said...

ah... ur like my twin or something :)
but i wrote that like a year ago. not that my birthday's changed or anything
oh, and *returns high five*

Miss Cain said...

Livi!!

I live in Perth too AND i was born on October 14th

Miss Cain said...

*smiles weirdly*

Are you going to meet Derek??

Livi said...

oh i did the ten-times-the-awesome-story thing. mine wouldn't upload either on the first three tries. then i unticked the box that said 'send me stuff from the publisher' and it sent. go figure.
the internet is a confusing place.

Miss Cain said...

I tried about 3 times too

Stupid Internet...

Zafira Kerias said...

Lol. Keep me in mind when you guys see Derek :)
I probably would faint if he ever came to Pennsylvania. The Poconos are epic..meh. I try I do. And its where the Minions i recruted are from.

Livi said...

yeah, definitely gonna go see him. though i don't know where he'll be. and i've never met an author before. be it'll be WEIRD. but all good things in life are weird. :)

Miss Cain said...

Eve, are you still here??

Miss Cain said...

The closest I've got to meeting an author was....

Never except when he said hi to me on Blogland

Miss Cain said...

THAT was cool

Zafira Kerias said...

Mine tried 7 times nothing. Nobody could get it to work.

Maybe there will be another contest on the Blog...THAT if Ameriminions can, I will do. I swear.

Derek Landy said...

Hi Nixion,

I've lost a few pets over the years, and I wish I knew the best way to deal with it, but I don't. I'm dreading the day my German Shepherd dies- she's getting on in years and it can't be long now- because I love this dog more than I love some humans...

And my cats? If anything happened to my cats I'd be devastated. So I know exactly how you feel- but there's not a whole lot I can say that'd make things any better.


Nightly Willow- I don't know how likely a trip to York will be this year...! My publicists are still deciding on where I'll be going, so I'll know for sure on Friday.

Eve- depending on the queue and the amount of time I have, I'll sign anything! Some events on this tour are going to be HORRENDOUSLY tight, and I might only be able to sign one book per person in order to get through everyone. When I have details as to what the tight events might be, I'll post 'em. Hopefully, though, I'll be able to sign whatever you bring!

I accept SOME hugs (again, depends on time and queue!)

And I haven't been sent the Sadistica Tortura entries yet! Oh what a name...!

Hi Zafira!

Miss Cain- a name tag mightn't be a bad idea!

Miss Cain said...

Yeah, I hope there will be an ANOTHER contest

I like contests

Zafira Kerias said...

Hi Derek!!!

Miss Cain said...

HI DEREK!!!!!!!

Miss Cain said...

Derek, don't forget Livi!!!

Miss Cain said...

A name tag it will be then
:D

Zafira Kerias said...

Derek, you made my day, you just did. *very very very happy Minion*

I lost a cat named Smokey. :( he was Russian Blue. Though he was funny.

Oh and i got the link for the spooning to new level :D

Miss Cain said...

I lost my dog last year, I stayed home because I couldn't stop crying

Miss Cain said...

Her name was Millie

She was the best dog ever

I still miss her

Zafira Kerias said...

The post was the one labled Tribute RP posted about half hour ago by Erin (me)

http://www.facebook.com/RoleplayOfTheHungerGames

Does that work?

Zafira Kerias said...

Smokey died in August I remember. I could NOT stop crying. He hated me but soon loved me and then, he died, he was old but....

Derek Landy said...

Hi Livi!

Miss Cain, losing pets is the worst.

Zafira, I literally have NO Idea what you're talking about.

Miss Cain said...

It works
:)

Derek Landy said...

Hmmm

Miss Cain said...

Even the next day when I went back to school I still cried when no one was looking
