Ireland/UK Tour

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:
Dublin
Bray
Drogheda
Cork

7 Sept - 9 Sept:
London
Bournemouth
Southampton

13 Sept - 15 Sept
London
Birmingham
Liverpool

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"...

I am back! After a long and tedious laptop malfunction, I am back!

vena coil said...

Hello Miss Cain, Wait, did anyone notice I was gone?

Emerald Melody said...

I'm so glad that you like the rest of Chapter 4 guys. It took a lot of hair pulling and struggling but I got there lol
And I'm proud that I did the necromancy part kinda proud.

Miss Cain said...

i doubt it Vena...

vena coil said...

My laptop is very urm strange so ( if you care) if suddenly I am gone, have no fear.

Dancing Fire said...

k Vena

vena coil said...

Hi Emerald. Thanks Miss Cain. * sits down next to tree and starts sobbing, no body wants meeeeeeeeee*

Helena Ember Sky said...

Miss Cain! Emerald! By the way Emerald I've wanted to tell you for a long time that your name is great. Miss Cain, a question, why did you choose Miss Cain?

vena coil said...

*Sob* What are *sob sob* strawberry * sob, sob wail* extra chewies?** sob, sob, sob!*

Nixion Strange said...

"We live in cynical times, Miss Cain."

Spoken by:Skudluggery Pleasant
Book: Death Bringer

Emerald Melody said...

Ah thanks very much Helena, it was my one moment of divine inspiration that I will never have again.

vena coil said...

How did *final sob* you pick your name Helena? * final sob again*

Helena Ember Sky said...

Oh I'm sure you will. Write, correct? You're inspiring certainly to me at least. Nix, was that to me?

vena coil said...

Emerald Melody, if you were in dc who, you name may be Green song, or gemstone song

Miss Cain said...

Miss Cain
well, i wanted something related with Valkyrie Cain but Valkyrie Cain is Valkyrie Cain
so i did Miss Cain

Helena Ember Sky said...

My (dead) nana's name was Helen and dad's alwayssaying how much I look like her (when she was younger). It makes him sad I think. Ember because I'm like fire and I like fire. And Sky because I love the sky, I also want to be an astrophysicist.

vena coil said...

No it would be Song green or Gemstone green

Emerald Melody said...

Well if you want to follow my ever lasting writing stuggles Helena go to dublindaes.blogspot.ie lol

And wait until you see me in my struggling moods Helena lol it's not a pretty sight.

vena coil said...

That's cool Helena, I picked my name because I like snakes

vena coil said...

UM Emerald, do you ever watch Dc who and how did you pick your name Nix?

vena coil said...

Doctor Who is cool

vena coil said...

Oh, gtg c u guys!

Nixion Strange said...

Someone told me Nixion meant nothing, which pretty much sums up how I feel about myself, and Strange is because I'm strange.

vena coil said...

Bye

Nixion Strange said...

Bye Vena!

Emerald Melody said...

I have never been drawn into the world of Dr.Who unfortunately, I am trying to get my novel jump started cause 4 chapters are just not enough for me.

vena coil said...

That's sad Nix, that's sad

vena coil said...

Oh, well it is pretty cool and I hear that torch wood is cool as well

vena coil said...

BYE GUYS C YA"LL LATER MEANING TOMORROW IF HOCKEY PRACTISE IS CANCELED!

Helena Ember Sky said...
