Okay then, here comes the places I'll be visiting in the Ireland/UK part of the tour. As mentioned previously, these will be weekend affairs- from Fridays to Sundays (mostly)- and they'll mainly consist of public signings.
30 Aug - 3 Sept:
7 Sept - 9 Sept:
13 Sept - 15 Sept
And I'll also be appearing at the Bangor Literature Festival, the Mountains to the Sea festival in Dublin, and the Cheltenham festival.
The fact that I can't visit EVERYWHERE is always a shame, but we do try and spread the love as much as possible. This time around, my publishers took into account that I'd be in Australia/NZ for the previous two weeks, so I reckon they took pity on me. Maybe it was all the manly crying I did. We'll never know...
Eagle-eyed Irish readers may also have noticed that I shall be appearing on the "Celebrity Mastermind" quiz show, starting on TV3 this Sunday. I'm not sure what episode I'm on (I think it airs on July 1st but I'm not sure). For those who don't know, Mastermind is a show where you are asked questions about a chosen topic, and then you're asked general knowledge questions. I'm not going to say ANYTHING about what happened (we recorded it a few weeks ago) so you'll just have to watch to see how well I did. Or not, as the case may be. Ahem.
Let's see, anything else...
The Forums are back up, thanks to a load of readers who chipped in and paid the website domain fee. You Minions are amazing, you really are. Anyone who hasn't visited really should, if only to raise an eyebrow or two at the topics being discussed...! skulduggeryforums.co.uk.
Oh, and sometime soon (don't know exactly when) we'll be releasing Chapter One of Kingdom of the Wicked for you to read over at skulduggerypleasant.com, a chapter entitled "The Butterfly and the Wolf"...
