Down Under Tour 2012

Righto, I can finally reveal the details for the A/NZ Down Under Tour. Most of the days will be taken up visiting schools, so I'm only listing the public events which will occur in the evenings and at the weekends.

For the public signings, all you have to do is turn up and I'll sign as much as possible in the time I have- but for the public events, it might be a good idea to contact the bookshop/library/whatever as soon as possible, in order to book a place.

The Ireland and UK details will be posted when I have them.

Oh, and for those of you who entered the little short story competition on the Skulduggery website, I've just read through the finalists (30 of them) and the winners will be announced before the weekend. Some truly great work in there...

1st

Lavender Hope said...

Hi Eve! That's a funny conversation you have then. :P

Lavender Hope said...

Seriously. I never can tell when we're close to the next page.

Nixion Strange said...

I am now regretting that
*sighs*
I dedicate this to... Meeting Derek?

Lavender Hope said...

Meeting Derek is a good thing to ded to.

Eve the ROCK said...

My report:

Maths: B

English: B

Science: C

Religious Education: C

History: C

Design and tech: B, I think...

The Arts (pictures, drama, music): B

Italian: B

Sigh. I got an A for Science and Italian and I think English last year.

APPARENTLY I have a huge problem with being proud of my crappy artwork

Eve the ROCK said...

In my language, ow means hurting

Lavender Hope said...

Design and tech sound cool. I like the arts though, cause I'm pretty good at it. :P

At least you don't have any D's or F's.

Nixion Strange said...

Ow is a exclemation of pain
And yes, I spelt that wrong, but I'm trying to type with my left hand here

Emily Hitchcock said...

Can't wait!!!!
Just glad it isn't on a school day. Would have to skip school... XD

Lavender Hope said...

So it's your hand that hurts Nix? What happened?

Hi Emily. :) That wouldn't be good, will it? :P

Lavender Hope said...

Or if it isn't your hand, what hurts? And what happened?

Nixion Strange said...

I was playing basketball, and I dunno, maybe I bent it back, but my right index finger hurts like crazy. No matter how much ice I use, the swelling won't go down

Lavender Hope said...

That does sound like it hurts. My suggestion, just keep the ice on.

Eve the ROCK said...

Oh, so your HAND is ow. Could've just said so

You know what helps swelling? Mouse tails

Arcanine said...

I'm going to desperately try and get to that public event in Brisbane! I've waited five years to meet you and it's been way to long! I can't wait!
Also, I absolutely loved the fist chapter of the new book. I can just tell its going to be super awesome! :)

Lavender Hope said...

Hi Arcanine!

Okay, I've decided that I need to make two posts with the pictures. I think I took to many, but the animals are too cute! I'll show them as soon as I can.

Nixion Strange said...

Hey Arcaine

Emerald Melody said...

I think I can fathom a guess and say that there is a lot of very happy Ausminions this morning.

Unlike this Iriminion who had a tooth taken out yesterday and is still slightly groggy.

Nixion Strange said...

Hi Emerald!

Lavender Hope said...

Hi Em! Ouch. I hate to take teeth out. That's one reason why I didn't want braces. XP

Nixion Strange said...

I wasn't happy this morning... and I already knew that he was coming to Melbourne, all I know now is exactly where, and that I probably can't go...

Emerald Melody said...

Ahh that sucks big time Nix

This is the first time I've had a tooth taken out Lav and I'm actually doing OK considering.

Lavender Hope said...

*looks at pictures I'm uploading*
Eek! That's a bit much... I have 29 pics of animals... most of them are the same ones. But they're so cute! I didn't know which to leave out!

Lavender Hope said...

Oh, that's good to hear Em. :)

But not good for Nix to miss Derek. :(

Emerald Melody said...

Fly over to Dublin and I'll sneak you into one Nix lol then you can crash on my couch in my gaff lol

That really is a bummer Nix

Nixion Strange said...

Guess I won't know for a few days, but 5 bloddy 15 in Melbourne city? Ha. I'd be lucky if I was allowed at 2 PM

Eve the ROCK said...

Dinner bye!

Nixion Strange said...

Bye Eve!

Lavender Hope said...

Bye Eve!

Lavender Hope said...

Finally! Almost finished with the animal pic post.

Nixion Strange said...

Yokay

Trinity Green said...

Hi

I love pudding

Nixion Strange said...

Hi Trinity!

Darquesse said...

I knew I knew you from somewhere Nix! And Derek, I'm so happy that the story thing is being announced before the weekend because I'm going away to the Gaeltacht for 3 weeks on Sunday. :) Humph. My school report is coming later than that though, which is v. annoying because now my mam and my sister will see it first. And I don't think it's as good as it could be. Anyway. Can't wait til you come to Drogheda!

Trinity Green said...

NOMNOMNOM

Lavender Hope said...

Yay, here it is!

Going to get part two ready now.

Lavender Hope said...

Are you leaving, Dark? Or saying bye to Nix?

Ocean Winter said...

Can't wait !

Lauren Dorchadas said...

HELLO GUYS AND GIRLS!!! :D

Lavender Hope said...

Hi Ocean! Hi again, Lauren!

Eve the ROCK said...

Hi :)

Trinity Green said...

My speech is about

Lavender Hope said...

Hi Eve! Lookie!

http://blog-of-random-things.blogspot.kr/2012/06/pics-of-korea-part-one-animals.html

Trinity Green said...

lying

Lavender Hope said...

Is it to get people not to lie?

Lots of people lie. Sometimes they have to, though. Only very rarely does someone HAVE to lie. Only if it's important no one knows the truth.

I don't know what I'm saying anymore.

Eve the ROCK said...

Commented!


I've never told any big lie. Just little ones that don't affect anyone but my own conscience. I just get myself thinking "Did I REALLY have to lie then? Ah, but she/he didn't need to know anyway." they're not necessary lies, but at least they don't TICK PEOPLE OFF WHEN THEY EVENTUALLY FIND OUT

Eve the ROCK said...

Hmmmm capitals

Lavender Hope said...

I saw, Eve! In the first picture of Pectu, it looks like he's smiling! :D

Yeah, I think those little lies are okay if they needed to be said.

Eve the ROCK said...

xD

Miss Cain said...

*frowns*

Aquinas College

really??



oh well, at least i know where to go!!

Eve the ROCK said...

Hi Miss!

Nixion Strange said...

Hi Miss!
brb

Lavender Hope said...

Hi Miss! Lookie!

http://blog-of-random-things.blogspot.kr/2012/06/pics-of-korea-part-one-animals.html

I'm getting the second part ready now.

Hmm, maybe I might even have to do a third.

Lavender Hope said...

Okay, Nix!

Trinity Green said...

I HAVE to go now

Darquesse said...

I meant bye to Nix but then as I went off and did something I suppose it was accidentally both! :L

Trinity Green said...

I think that lying is a problem also I just found out that I can touch type!

Miss Cain said...

oki doki Nix!

ive checked it Lav, i saw the previous messages

Lavender Hope said...

Done with part two! Gotta post a part three though.

http://blog-of-random-things.blogspot.kr/2012/06/pics-part-two-building-and-things.html

Nixion Strange said...

dcsmnxcz

Lavender Hope said...

Oh, that's okay then, Dark. WB. :)

What's touch type?

Lavender Hope said...

WB, Nix!

I'm speeding up how much I post now. Before, I wouldn't post for a while. Now five in two days! Watch out Dashboards! Here come the posts! :P

Trinity Green said...

NO, i was not just eating chocolate sauce with a spoon and almost got caught by my dad

Miss Cain said...

im holding back my posting
for now

posted and commented Lav!

Trinity Green said...

touch typing is when u type whilst looking at the screen not at the key board

Lavender Hope said...

Thanks, Miss! I'll look soon!

Trinity Green said...

I am tired

Lavender Hope said...

Oh, cool!

I can only do that sometimes. I don't do that 'home key' thing. My fingers just move all over the keyboard, yet I can still type fast!

Sort of. :P

Trinity Green said...

gtgtgtg c ya guys

Nixion Strange said...

I usually do that, but things are more difficult tonight

Nixion Strange said...

Bye Trinity!

Trinity Green said...

cool Lavender

Lavender Hope said...

I am too, a little. Not as much as the first few days I've been here though. Just like, I've-done-a-lot-in-the-day-and-now-wants-to-rest-a-bit-tired. Not that I need to take a nap or anything.

Lavender Hope said...

Bye Trinity, if you really are leaving! ;P

Miss Cain said...

i might go to both signings

hehe

11am
i could get up for that

6pm
easy to get up on time
not that i sleep in the afternoon

Lavender Hope said...

You guys who get to see Derek are so lucky!

Hey, think you could tell him Lavender Hope from the blog says hi?
*looks hopefully at Miss, begging*
PLEASE???

Darquesse said...

I can't believe I've lost my phone - It's been missing for weeks, dead and I need it for the Gaeltacht on Sunday!! :(

Lavender Hope said...

I hope you find it, Dark!

Miss Cain said...

will do Lav

hmmm, 21st of August is a tuesday morning WHEN i have the Book Week assembly

but at 11am, so i might just do the 6pm one
OR after the assembly i get my mum and/or dad to take me to the signing

hehehe

Lavender Hope said...

THANK YOU, MISS!!!

Miss Cain said...

hope you find your phone eventually before Sunday Dark!

Miss Cain said...

*winks*
no prob Lav!

Nixion Strange said...

I hope I can go...

Darquesse said...

Thanks Lav :) Hehe your nickname backwards is Val. OK yeah I think I'll go look for it now. Bye everyone! xxx

Miss Cain said...

bye Dark!

Lavender Hope said...

Bye Dark! And that was totally coincidental! Had no idea when I took my name!

Nixion Strange said...

Bye Darquesse!

Lavender Hope said...

I hope you can too, Nix.

Miss Cain said...

i read my little sis SP and my dad listens as well
im pretty certain he will take me
if not, my mum will

if not THAT, then i will beg my grandparents

Nixion Strange said...

How come Melbourne only gets him for one time at 5:15 PM in the city? UN-FAIR!

Eve the ROCK said...

Be back soon

Bye!

Miss Cain said...

5:15 in the city

bad timing, rush hour

Miss Cain said...

bye Eve!

Nixion Strange said...

Melbourne, Brisbane and Christchurch get the low end of the deal...

Nixion Strange said...

Oh no!
It's on a Thursday! I can't go... the earliest I could go is about 7...
God damn it...

Miss Cain said...

i wonder what schools hes coming to...

if he comes to my school, im going to die of awesomeness

Lavender Hope said...

Bye Eve!

I wish I could go to Australia someday... The only places I've been where to Korea and Japan(and other places in America, but that doesn't count). Even though I went/stayed a lot. I would just like to see something new, ya know?

Lavender Hope said...

That's horrible, Nix! Totally sucks!

Miss Cain said...

*frowns*
Derek said that the public signings will take place in the evenings and on the weekends

11am on a Tuesday morning does not fit the criteria

Nixion Strange said...

*beats head against desk*
My one chance ever meeting him is now never going to happen...

Miss Cain said...

*eyes widen*

THERE ARE NO PUBLIC SIGNINGS IN PERTH!!
ONLY PUBLIC EVENTS!!!


NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

Miss Cain said...

no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no!!!!!!!

not possible!!!!

Lavender Hope said...

That sucks for both of you! D:

Miss Cain said...

I WANT A BOOK SIGNED!!

Miss Cain said...

*starts sulking*

Nixion Strange said...

At least you get to see him...

Lavender Hope said...

Maybe ask, and he might be generous enough to do it. It would be cool if only you got a book signed, huh? Then you can tell him what an awesome Golden God he is. I bet he'll like that.

Miss Cain said...

true...

but still

public events, really Derek??

where are our signings??

Lavender Hope said...

Well, there are many people how didn't get to see him yet either, Nix. Not just America, but I bet other places too.

Lavender Hope said...

*who

Nixion Strange said...

I'm in a little bit of a bad mood Miss, so you'll excuse me if I ignore you sulking about not getting a book signed

Miss Cain said...

maybe he got them wrong
cuz he said that they would take place in the evenings and on weekends, but 11am on a Tuesday morning doesnt work with that discription

so maybe one of them is a signing


DEREK!!!
PLEASE COME ON SO MY BRAIN CAN BE UNFUZZLED!!

Nixion Strange said...

Yeah, but I was lookign forward, I got my hopes up, I thought I would, I had it planned out. Now none of it will ever happen

Miss Cain said...

thats alright Nix

i do random stuff at desperate times

Miss Cain said...

*sighs*

Derek, can you please come on

my brain is starting to hurt

Miss Cain said...

*thinks*

surely one of them is a signing

surely

Lavender Hope said...

Dinner, bbl, bye!

Almost finished with the third(and last) post. Will do it when I get back. Bye!

Nixion Strange said...

Bye Lav!

Nixion Strange said...

Nixion Strange said...

I read it Flame
Calm down

Eve the ROCK said...

Miss, NJ told me he signs books at events too, at the end of his talk!

Lavender Hope said...

I might never be able to come here again. Or blog, or... ANYTHING! Snoopy little-
*is shaking in anger*

Flame Phoenix The Warrior Prince said...

I'm tired.

Nixion Strange said...

Flame Phoenix The Warrior Prince said...

@Lav

Miss Cain said...

Lav
do you want to tell or not?

we understand if you dont want to tell

Eve the ROCK said...

What happened, Lav?

Lavender Hope said...

No, you have no idea-
*sighs and puts head in hands*
My friend made me delete those posts...

And she-
*yells*
She's a stupid sneaky little jerk who called you guys freaks!

She wants to know what the name of my blog is and she's such a- UGH!

Flame Phoenix The Warrior Prince said...

my writing is so errored...

Lavender Hope said...

I didn't tell her, but she told her mom about this and now-

Her mom is my guardian while I'm here and-

I can't tell you too much...

Miss Cain said...

we are NOT freaks!!!

we are thoses who simply express our obsession on here and blog cuz we do

you can tell her that she should be ASHAMED!!

Lavender Hope said...

After today, you might not see me for a while... they wanted me to delete my blog...

Lavender Hope said...

She doesn't get it... I didn't tell her I had one because I knew she'd do this...

Flame Phoenix The Warrior Prince said...

why?

Miss Cain said...

*scowles*

1) dont delete your blog

2) try and come on as much as possible!!

Lavender Hope said...

I might not be coming back for a while... they'll be watching me like hawks now. And after, I'll only be on for two hours at the most...

Miss Cain said...

what do they have against your blog??

its not bad to have a blog!!

Lavender Hope said...

It's secret. That's why they're mad in the first place. I shouldn't even be telling you guys. But I trust you.

Lavender Hope said...

It's not the blog, it's those posts...

Miss Cain said...

thats alright of you dont tell us

i understand

Miss Cain said...

*hugs Lav*

Nixion Strange said...

Miss... no, never mind

Lav, I'm really sorry. I understand, and I hope you can sort this out (I'm also hoping that your "friend" apologises)

Lavender Hope said...

Thanks.
*smiles a little, then stops*
*sighs*
I have to go now. They wanted me off once I deleted it. I'm sorry.


*speaks sadly*
Bye guys...

Miss Cain said...

*raises eyebrow*

did i say something thats odd Nix??

Miss Cain said...

*smiles sadly*

bye Lav!

Flame Phoenix The Warrior Prince said...

Miss, Don't kill him.

*follows Lav*


You DELETED it?

Miss Cain said...

kill who??

Miss Cain said...

*is quite confused*

Eve the ROCK said...

Jeez...

Nixion Strange said...

Bye Lav!

Lavender Hope said...

*voice hardens*
She won't apologize. She never will.

Once, we got in a fight, she torn a book that I bought. It was one of my favorites. She also ripped up my writing and wrote mean things on it. She's always like this. Why am I still her friend? It's complicated.

Now I really have to go, before they come back. I'll try to come back, but I have to wait a few days. Bye guys, and I'll miss you.

Eve the ROCK said...

Bye Lav :(

Miss Cain said...

Flame, i checked Lav's blog

the 2 latest posts are gone

Miss Cain said...

bye Lav

*smiles sadly again*

Nixion Strange said...

I know about friends like that...

Miss Cain said...

i used to have "friends" like that

no longer my friends

i have epic friends now

Eve the ROCK said...

My friends are fine, except for times like today when I just think "....ugh, I need better friends...."
