The End Of The World Is Nigh

Just got word- The End Of The World has officially been released.

I thought it wouldn't be available until the 1st of March, World Book Day, but apparently they release their books a week or two early so that people will have them in their hands for the day in question. I think the vouchers can be used in participating shops from tomorrow onwards, but if you don't have a voucher the books themselves are real cheap, so it shouldn't break the bank.

TEOTW isn't the only World Book Day book, of course, so look around, see if anything else takes your fancy.

The A/NZ version of TEOTW will be released tomorrow, I'm told. The only difference between the two versions are the extras at the back. In the A/NZ, there's the short story using characters created by Minions -with-funny-accents right here in this Blog (and don't worry, this story will be collected along with all of the others and released to the world sometime between now and Book Nine).

In the UK and Ireland version of TEOTW, instead of a story, we have some deleted scenes from my first draft of the first Skulduggery book. I figured it might be interesting to give you a peek into what Val's home life would have been like if I hadn't come up with the idea of the reflection. Here's a hint: it'd be completely different. No warmth, or humour, or Melissa rolling her eyes while Desmond does something odd. Have a read, and then see which one you prefer.

Oh, and to all you competition winners who have been sent the signed books, I still have to send you a signed copy of Death Bringer. I've signed them and everything, I just haven't, er, sent them yet.  Ahem. The upside is that now I'll be able to send you signed copies of TEOTW as well- so yay me!

Oh, and as usual, even though TEOTW is only a novelette, keep spoilers to an absolute minimum in the comments section. You may continue to babble now.

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

AAAAAAAAH! DEREK POSTED AGAIN! YOU ARE LIKE A NINJA DEREK!
XD

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

DEREK SIR! I have TWO comments I'm gonna spam to you until you answer them!
1st one is on behalf of Hellboy.
2nd one on behalf of Lizzy! Both are longtime minions of yours!
:D

Derek.

Derek Landy.

Hi.


Listen, we need to talk... XD A while back, with your mass signings and all, a good friend of mine printed off some work I sent her, travelled to your signing, and gave it up- as well as a lot of other people's work, including her own.
You may remember her- Lenka Sweet, or Juliet.

After she handed you the folder I have no idea what happened to it- did you read our works? The letters we attached? The email addresses strategically placed? Hmm?

I would just like to know...cos...well... xD Everything we do is to worship ya, Golden God, the least you could do is respond :)

I hope you read this :/ I'll post it a couple of times, but don't worry, my spamming days are over...

Cya later,

HB

Derek! Derek! Dereeeeek! Oi! Oi! Oi! You paying attention to me yet?

Good, so I have a question. When you were just getting started, and SP wasn't even published yet, how did you get publishers to look at your drafts? Did you email the drafts to them, and they looked it over or something. The publishing world scares me o.o





THANK YOU DEREK!
XD

childofhorror said...

Gasp! Fifth comment? Sixth, seventh, now? : D

Kribu said...

Aaaaaaargh! ~contemplates going to check the mailbox again although it's almost midnight and the book was only dispatched yesterday~

An English friend who got hers yesterday sent me a quote as a teaser. She's EVIL. (I'm conveniently forgetting that I begged her for something non-spoilery.)

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

Wait! Are you saying I am going to get a signed copy if TEOTW too?
WHOA! SO COOOOOOOL!
*cries tears of releif and joy! SO AMAZINGLY EPICA!
*huggies Derek*

Cassidy El Skulduggo Clarimonde said...

It will be in my hands, and i shall smell the new book smell from it, novelettte or not, it counts at a book !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 This has reaaly cheered me up !!!!! :3

hudson said...

Wow, never got in this early.
How's all this film stuff going?
I need another legacy since Harry potter has finished.
But Skully will be much better because you wrote it.
I hate short sentences.
I have one query though.
Setting up Val with Gordon's legacy - wouldn't it be more fun to have val get a job,or her reflection?
Also I have a picture of you on my wall.
*chuckles of glee with hints of malice ensue*
Bye bye!!!!

childofhorror said...

Wooo, TEOTW! First time I've actually looked forward to ze Book Day! It always just rolled around without my noticing...

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

This is me refreshing as there isn't a 'newest' button.

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

Aww, Sorry your dad used your gift card Zafira.
Do you think he will buy you TEOTW in exchange for using your gift card? I hope so! :D

Mar-Chu said...

*gasps over-dramatically*

Heads up, I like Desmond the best when he said he dropped Valkyrie into a penguin enclosure. Just sayin'.

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

I used to HATE world book day because in primary we always used to have to bring in our favoutite book and i never had one. I discovered all three of my favourite authors in secondary school:(

Cassidy El Skulduggo Clarimonde said...

I think Derek should post again and say hi to us all then jump on the next ferry or plane to Scotland and get a bus, train or taxi to East Kilbride. Then he should stay in a hotel and come to Calderglen High School for the day to talk with 2T3 and be our English teacher !!!!!! And bring the incomplete book 7 !!!!!!! Then he should come see Olly Murs with me !!!!

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

Yeah, that part made me laugh *goes off to read it*

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

Octaboona Ambrosius- Paragon of the Purple Horde said...

Hello world!

I read TEOTW today. I'm glad I'll get a signed copy of it. To complete my two sets of SP books. A signed and an unsigned set.

HeidiO said...

one more reason why i need to move to the UK. THESE BOOKS DO NOT COME OVER THE ATLANTIC FAST ENOUGH.

MissAriannaDark said...

oi Derek...I AM MOVING ON WEDNESDAY!!!!! So what if someone else get's my books when I leave?! :c

Zafira Kerias said...

Heidi0 i agree i mean i got MC and DB but DD hasnt come how am i supposed to read the two i got if DD isnt here? I mean i did borrow from my friend sooo

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

Okay, i just read the penguin enclosure bit. I love that chapter. It really makes me laugh.

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

*tackles Octa with a rawr and huggies and kisses him*
ME WANT A HUG NOW BUSTER!

Octaboona Ambrosius- Paragon of the Purple Horde said...

KALLISTA!!!!!!!

*hugs her tightly and glomps her with noogies and kisses*

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

Hi octoboona, heidio, arriana.

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

Refreshing.

HeidiO said...

i know it's so annoying! i ordered MC and DB at the same time and it took them almost 2 weeks to get here. now im waiting on TEOTW. RAGE

Derek Landy said...

Hi Kallista, and hi Hellboy!

I do indeed have that folder, and it's packed full of stuff, but on that tour I was handed an astonishing FOUR folders of fan fiction and drawings, and I still haven't got through them all (y'know, writing a book takes up a certain amount of time...)

But once I've finished all of them I'll be able to tell you what I think!

Lizzy, I was lucky enough to have an agent when I was writing Skulduggery. I got an agent because of the movies I'd done, so when I'd finished the book she knew the perfect people to send it to. Basically, that means that I skipped the awful stage you're at now, which is wondering how the hell you get your foot in the door...!

Hudson- you're weird. But apart from that, that's a good question! Would if have been better to set Val up with a job, instead of inheriting Gordon's estate?

The answer, I admit, is yes, it probably would have been better- in the long run- to NOT have her inherit so much. But as it is, her situation really lets me focus on the important stuff, and ignore the more practical things like "how does she pay for things?"

Star Midnight- I think Katie McGrath would be wonderful in ANY role! I met her once, at my cousin's wedding, and I spent the whole night trying to chat her up. Lovely girl!

(Also, regrading the refreshing the comments page, as I've just found out, if you go back to the actual blog entry and click on the title to this post, the comments page will open up like they always did!)

And hi Cassidy! And everyone! And I can't be your English teacher! I'd just spend the whole class making jokes and hitting people!

Aylisse Wonder said...

So excited for End Of The World! It's gonna be so awesome! :D

Derek Landy said...

Arianna- if you're moving, send your new address to the email you were given, and I'll send it on to you.

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

I know . . . Instead of putting refreshing, i'll put sp quotes!

The sparrow flies south for winter *hits south because i don't have anyone better to hit*

Derek, i think death bringer is probably your funniest book.

Octaboona Ambrosius- Paragon of the Purple Horde said...

*stares wildly*

It's a DEREK!

*jumps up and down in excitement*

I must warn you that if I ever meet you in real life I just simply have to give you a noogie.

(And maybe another one on behalf of my beloved Kallista)

MissAriannaDark said...

OK! Thanks Derek! Thank you for everything I mean. :3

Zafira Kerias said...

Hello Derek. I swore i would tell you that Ali who comments on Facebook says " hello golden god." i do know her outside of school. :So now i feel safer from her copy of Death Bringer which will prolly hit me if i hadnt posted her greeting.

amelie espirt ____the gummy bear assasin for the straight jacket said...

yay so excited now i just have to hope that i can get it when i go shopping cant wait to read what adventures the aussies and nz get up to yay

Pink Rose said...

DDDDDEREEEEEEEKKKKKKKkkk!!!!!!!!

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

Thanks Derek for the answer to my sapm! I know you love spam! :P
BTW I am glad Val inherited all that. Stuff like that never happens in real life so it's fun for me to see and imagine what it would be like.
*shrugs*
:D

Mar-Chu said...

Derek, can you at least be MY sub? :D

It'd be a wonderful class! You'd do everything the teacher already does! Plus hitting!

(And make the hallway smell like bacon, then you'll get wild reactions from this girl who...well, likes bacon. It's weird. It really is)

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

*giggles and hugs her beloved Octa*

So adorable!

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

Hi Amelie! *hugs* It's been a while since I last chatted with you! How are you?

Mar-Chu said...

*shifty look*

THE ROOSTER CROWS AT DAWN!

*Thalia kicks down the door*

Thalia: You called?

...I wish that could happen. Hmmm..

Cassidy El Skulduggo Clarimonde said...

Hehehe, hitting people in my class is fine, and jokes are even better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :3

Octaboona Ambrosius- Paragon of the Purple Horde said...

Oh and about the deleted scenes.

I much prefer Val's family life as it is in the books.

Reading those deleted scenes were just horrible (in like a good way- we are reading words from an awesome Golden God after all). I'm so glad you came up with the reflection.

:D

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

WOW! DEREK MENTIONED ME! *sighs happily* My life is now complete. Well, it will be, if ghastlith happens, and if km plays cs, and if i become an author when i'm older, and if i never have to birdwatch again, and if . . .

Okay. My life is not quite complete.

But i knew katie mcgrath was the best friend of your counsin's wife. I'm in the process of reading all your old posts, AND all the millions of comments, because that's how sad i am:(

Pink Rose said...

I mean *coughs* Hi.

Cassidy El Skulduggo Clarimonde said...

And OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Derek just replied to meeee!!!!!!!! I feel soooo happy!!!!! This is why i come to the blog, to get cheered up and talk to epic people!!!!!!!!!!!! :3

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

Naaaah! You are not sad but EPICA Star!
*hugs*
You are an EPICA minion of Derek! YAY!

Pink Rose said...

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm *goes off thinking*

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

Hi cassidy, mar-chu. Mar-chu, you might not have met me. But i will be called a regular in the future, so hi.

June Clarence said...

Hey Derek! You "forgot" to mention when TEOTW will be released in Germany. Don`t tell me I need to have it shipped over from the UK again?! Because I did that with Death Bringer and I think someone had to swim across the channel and walk the rest of the way to deliver it to my local book store. That`s just getting ridiculous, really.

Anyway, I`m already looking forward to reading it and I hope it`ll be available for me, soon.

And even though I haven´t yet read the alternative version of Val`s home life, I can already tell it wouldn`t be half as good as the "real" one. I absolutely LOVE Desmond`s scenes. He is hilarious.

"Of cpurse not. I'd only be able to juggle her if we had twins. Otherwise it's just throwing"

"You dropped her when we were at the zoo"
"You dropped me?"

"You dropped me in the PENGUIN ENCLOSURE?"

Zafira Kerias said...

Des is brilliant reminds me of my brother irl

Robin Snowscar said...

I don't know anybody like that, probably why it's so funny to me.

Sadly my brother is like that

Robin Snowscar said...

Sadly? It sounds like fun

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

Robin? Flame> You still around? Can you come on to cha tfor a moment. SOmething I wanted to chat about there. :(

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

"I was leaning over the railings and you just plopped out of my grip. You weren't hurt, or anything. And even if you had been, I'm sure the penguins would have taken you in, raised you as one of their own. It would have been a different life for you, but still a good one"
"I can't beleive you dropped me"
"Neither could the people around us. Some crazy woman stormed up and roared at me for about five minutes about how i shouldn't be putting my child in danger"
"That was me"

To be continued . . .

Oh he is funny....i gotta figure out how he pulled tendons in his arm bowling

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

"Now it makes sense. My fear of zoos. My fear of penguins. My fear of being dropped in a zoo with penguins. It's all Dad's fault"

Ah, I give up, I must dash! Farewell.

The Purple Menace wasn't as bad as the Canary Car, but it was close. At least it didn't make people stop and actually laugh as it passed.

Bye robin!

"I'm sure he'd forgive the little trespass if you told him what we'd found"
"Not really. See, this is his family's chamber. It's a sacred thing. Us being here is inexcusable"
"What? You said this was just like a storage shed. You didn't say anything about it being SACRED"

"Is this disrespectful? Is this like dancing on someone's grave?"
"A little worse than that. It's like digging up the grave, taking out the body, rifling through the pockets and THEN dancing on the whole thing. It's a little more than disrespectful."

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

Is nobody here?

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

Five minutes till midnight . . .

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

Maybe i'll get first. That would be good.

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

That would be excellant, in fact.

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

Now, let me see . . . What should i dedicate it to?

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

Well, i've got quite a way to go yet, of course.

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

Woo-hoo! Midnight! *throws confetti*

Star Midnight, the Disappearing Invisible Girl who has loves tuna mayo, is the Enemy of the Llamas and has MNPMTB said...

Farewell, blogland. Until we meet again.

Holy shiz! Must...get...to...Amazon....

Kimberly Vex said...

Fudge! I can't find it on the US site.
Do I have to order from the UK site? Even though I've ordered three books from out of the country already I'm still not accustomed to Internet shopping.

And publish your books here!

Thalia Jane said...

ANYWAY.

YAY FOR THE END OF THE WORLD! :D

And I'm a tad scared of what Val's home life would be like without the reflection. I mean, I don't really like the reflection, but it makes life easier.

Kimberly Vex said...

O.o i be worried i got a pic of Billy-Ray staring at me

Valkyrie V. Cain - The Brilliant Character and Creator of Ivy Animosity said...

Okay, Derek, I'm gonna make sure you see this. Yeah. So I'm gonna post it again:


DEREK!!!

OH MY GOD YOU CAN READ THE COMMENTS NOW?! YAY YAY YAY! I was - I tried so very hard to - going to tell you what Sparky did, but I was two posts away from the first page on the last post so I can post a comment, but my computer - my BROKEN computer - would not ALLOW it. It shut off as I was typing the comment. Just saying.

By the way, and I am NOT trying to be creepy, but I dreamed that I met you and you wouldn't leave me alone... It was creepy... I also once dreamed that you were a grouchy old hobo who owned a toilet company. That... I don't know how that happened, so don't ask. Please.

SAY HI TO ME MASTER DEREK! PLEASE! I AM YOUR BIGGEST FAN! (No one can argue! I didn't see the rest of YOU having a party for him, or with NINETEEN Skulduggery books, or a Skulduggery blanket...)

Yes Derek, I am very insane. You are so correct about that. I think everyone agrees on that one. It's pretty obvious.

And also, I want to ask you something (*cough-something-that-will-make-me-explode-with-joy-if-you-do-it-cough*), and that something is if you will read my story. It isn't a fanfiction by any means, just a story. An amazing story that, so far, everyone loves. It's kind of long, though. Not like a book, but I want to make it into one. Eventually. I'm currently writing the seventh chapter, and I think that I have, oh, about 15,000 words. Please read it! You're the one who inspired me to write in the first place! If you read it, and told me what you though of it, it would be SO FREAKING COOL. That's be like having my inspiration telling me what they thought of my work. (I felt really weird refering to you as 'my inspiration'. I like calling you 'Derek' a lot more.) It's posted at http://valkyriesstories.blogspot.com/

Also, COME TO WASHINGTON. If you don't... *gives Derek a very threatening-looking glare to make time to think of a threat* ... I will steal a spoon from your kitchen and kill you with it! Just.. don't, you know, kick me in the face. That wouldn't be very nice, now would it?

Oh, and I've gathered 200+ minions for you. And my entire elementary school from last year is reading Skulduggery. Because of me. I rock.

This comment is long...

Did you get my letter? From Bella Votolato? You sent me a Christmas card and a letter, and I wrote one back. DID YOU GET IT? HMMM? DID YOU? I said that, if you still want to be a ninja, I can be like your combat accessory. I'd love to kick people. I've already got a list. *shows list to Derek by shoving it in his face*

Oh, and I got my signed books and poster from you. THEY ARE SO COOL. When I got them, I didn't let them out of my sight for about two hours, and for those two hours I was just reading the short stories and admiring the awesomeness... And the watch? I wear it everyday. It's on right now. Opposite of my hand with a black ring, which I have tricked people into believing that has Necromancer magic.

I feel like I'm forgetting to say something...

Oh! Please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please... *continues for a thousand more words* Say something to Amanda. She was the girl with orange hair from the party. You know, the one eating frosting out of the can with a spoon. She was a major part of the party, and everyday we talk about Skulduggery and think of every possible thing that could happen when we meet you. We even once thought of what would happen if we 'accidentally' threw you at a wall... SAY SOMETHING TO HER! PLEASE! DON'T GIVE ME ALL THE CREDIT FOR THAT BIRTHDAY/DEATHDAY PARTY!

In conclusion to this ridiculously long comment... DEREK LANDY IS AWESOME!

Valkyrie V. Cain - The Brilliant Character and Creator of Ivy Animosity said...

Hey Derek, are you gonna come to Washington? Are you? PLEASE? Did I ask that in the long comment? PLEASE COME HERE. PLEASE. You go to, like, every other country except America. What are all us Ameriminions supposed to do? HMMMMM? We want to meet you too... DESPERATELY...

Hehehehe... I pushed Amanda off the yoga ball thingy that she's sitting on...

A.T.Him said...

Hello MR. Landy!
I have no idea what to write here so just pretend I wrote something especially witty and clever. Anyway i am a really big fan, and wish to arrogantly demand that you hurry up and get the next books written and released so that I have more to read and therefore distract myself from the hideous babble of my ignorant Twilight-loving cohorts. That being said, I hope you've had a lovely day.

Zafira Kerias said...

I think playing with Bellatrix's wand is dangerous...i poked my toe i swear i broke earlier with it....painful

Kimberly Vex said...

Derek should come to California. We have a prison in the middle of the sea (Alcatraz), the Hollywood sign, Yosemite, Pier 39, and frozen yogurt. :3

Amanda Moore/China Sorrows, now Zinnia Batty said...

heler

Valkyrie V. Cain - The Brilliant Character and Creator of Ivy Animosity said...

Derek, should I be concerned that Polar Bear Girl claims to work for Caelan? She says that she helps him be a stalker... It's creepy...

Amanda Moore/China Sorrows, now Zinnia Batty said...

TAKE ME TO YOUR LEADER OR DIE BY THE FLY GUY

Valkyrie V. Cain - The Brilliant Character and Creator of Ivy Animosity said...

Hmmmm... Amanda can't spell 'guy' or 'leader' without me telling her how to... And she's twelve. And a month and a few days older than me. AND I CAN SPELL EVERYTHING.

E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G.

I'm amazing.

Zafira Kerias said...
