Germany!

I love German book fairs.

Every single one I've been to has been PACKED, and while that does tend to slow things down as you're trying to walk from one gigantic hall to the other, you really don't mind all that much. All these people crammed in around you are book-lovers, for god's sake. How annoyed can you actually be?

Over the weekend, I was at TWO German book fairs. The first one was in Cologne, on Friday evening, and I was up on stage with Rainer, the actor who does the German audiobooks, and Margarete, the translator. We've been doing this together for a few years now, so we're all quite comfortable with the process. The main difference between events in Germany and events everywhere else (apart from the need for a translator) is the emphasis put on the audio book. Rainer is as integral to the show as I am, and his readings make up half of our time on stage. The event in Cologne went wonderfully, and we had a really receptive audience, and I even spotted some familiar faces in the queue.

Once I'd finished signing, we went back to our hotel, where we had a very nice meal attended by the weirdest waiters I've ever encountered. One was tall, one was short, and they looked so alike that I started to suspect that they were the rejects from a batch of clones some mad professor had concocted in a dark and dingy lab. They were both wearing ill-fitting suits, both had the same type of glasses, and they both stood around and stared into space in the corners of the room while we were waiting to place our orders. So incredibly ODD.

Thankfully, we managed to escape the restaurant before they could kill us and harvest our organs to replace their own failing ones, and I got to my room and got into bed and put my head on the most deadly pillow the world has ever known. It was so big and so soft that when I put my head onto it, the whole thing folded up on either side and tried to suffocate me.

Convinced that the clone waiters were hovering outside my door, waiting for me to die, I slept without a pillow that night. I also slept sideways, because the double bed I'd been given was, in actual fact, two single beds pushed together, and I kept slipping down between them. Who knows what was waiting for me if I had slipped all the way? Scorpions? Tarantulas? Really lazy ninjas? Or maybe just a hole in the floor and a twisting slide that would deliver me to the mad professor's Experimentation Table of Doom?

I survived the night. Barely.

The next morning, we got a train to Frankfurt and then a plane to Leipzig. No attempts on my life were made during this time.

Leipzig Book Fair is half book festival and half comic convention. There are all these people dressed as Manga characters roaming around, chatting on their phones, browsing book shelves. Also, all of Germany had had a pretty bad winter, and there was piles of snow everywhere and it was pretty damn cold— and in the middle of it all you have these really cute German girls walking around in bizarre costumes that don't really cover a whole lot. They must have been FREEZING.

We did our first event, and although we only had a half an hour, it went very well. Such a huge crowd. The signing went on forever, and it was so cool seeing that many people wanting me to scrawl my signature over whatever they had.

The moment we were finished there we got in a car and drove to a graveyard. Because that's what you do once night falls, obviously.

We went to a huge sarcophagus-type place and we yapped in front of 200 people, doing our best to ignore the deep hole behind us with the old coffin. So just an average Saturday night, then...

Once that was done with, we went to dinner with a bunch of other people, including American author Maggie Stiefvater, and I sat at a big table with a bunch of people speaking German all around me. Best night EVER! Well, not quite. But Maggie is a funny lady.

Then I got back to my hotel. This time, my bed was a proper double bed, but the waiters had obviously followed me from Cologne because those damn pillows tried to drown my head again.

Sunday was my last day there. It was also Saint Patrick's Day.

(That's St PADDY'S Day, in its shortened version. Not St PATTY'S Day, as some Americans insist on calling it...)

I had an interview to do in the morning, and then I had two hours off before my event, so I went wandering through the halls. It was all so incredibly strange, and wonderfully so. It made me wish that Irish book festivals were like this. Imagine if The Mountains to the Sea festival had hundreds of teenagers walking around dressed as characters from comics and books. That would ROCK.

We did our event, signed for an enormous amount of people, and then I was whisked off to the airport to catch my first flight. I arrived back to my front door a little under eight hours later, tired but happy to be home, and looking forward to spending a night with my head on a pillow that doesn't try to kill me.

Hey! How are you?
I was at your appearance in Leipzig on Saturday too.
You was hilarious.
And even my sister liked it, although
she had not read a single book.
(After that, she said to me, she wants to read it soon, because it was
so genious)
It was so exciting! That was the top of my day there!
Thanks!

Taira

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

Tanja said...

This Post is hilarious! xD I was THERE, well in Cologne and i LOVED it! YOU ARE AWSOME! YOURE BOOKS ARE AWSOME! :P EVERYTHING WAS AWSOME! :)

Josephine Brausewetter said...

Yeah, Germans are odd. And ALL of our pillows try to kill intelligent people. Hope, sometimes my books also are on a book fair, or at last in a dusty bookshelf in the house of my dying stalker. THAT would be nice

TheBookGazer.Blogspot.com said...

DEREKS!.... THAT POST WAS HYSTERICAL!
You should really blog more! (if you want)

Dakka said...

Though the waiters didn't follow you to your house kinda killed the fun. That'll teach them to chase awesome people.

Valkyrie Smith said...

Look! I'm here! Hello!

I won't be here for long though... I have stuff to do.... Nothing to do with German Waiters... or pillows... and definatly not cloneing....

ahem.

Anyways, Hope everyone is ok! Will try come back later, but needed to leave my mark!! Like a wolf(or is that called scenting the area? Dunno)

Laters!

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

I'm an American aka Ameriminion so I never met Derek in person but I will meet Derek via Skype March 30th at a signing

Octaboona Ambrosius: Horace said...

@ Zaf,

You're meeting Derek via Skype?

Awesome. Is there anyway I could join that Skype meeting?

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen(and Thief in Black) said...

HEY DEREK!
*hugs*
I am so glad you had fun and escaped those two vile waiters and the pillows of DEATH!
Next time you travel, be sure to bring your own pillow just in case those evil waiters turn up again with their death pillow! We minions need you alive and well!
:D

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Sorry for vanishing.

Trying to finish Chaoter 6...

Luna Brightside said...

Yay, first page ^-^

Suz Korb said...

Oh! It is St Paddy's, isn't it? I hope I never assumed it was St Patty's. I probably did though cuz I'm American!

Aisling said...

Yay a new blog post :)

Luna Brightside said...

Wach out for those murdersome pillows!

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

Uhm this is kinda NJ Skyping me AT the event...so to be honest i think it's just gonna be me since it's like my very late birthday present and i am scared actually

TeaLovingShamrock said...

I like this post. It was detailed and funny and didn't give away much about the book but that's ok. It was very funny, I love you Derek! Please come to Kilkenny soon so I can interview you!

http://tealovingshamrock.blogspot.ie/

Octaboona Ambrosius: Horace said...

@ Zaf no problem :)

Hopefully I'll be able to see Derek at the London signing anyways.

Octaboona Ambrosius: Horace said...

Why are you scared? *hugs*

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

*hugs*

Cuz this is my first time EVER even talking to him in a face to face setting usually it's Blogland or Twitter....So yeah I am pretty much scared and nervous because I have exploded Ireland...

*explodes Ireland*

Aisling said...

Some Americians think that Paddy's day is Patty's day???

How? That doesn't make sense. But then that's probably just cause I'm Irish and I've grown up with Paddy's day and have never heard Patty's day before.

Derek I'd say the evil waitors with the deadly pillows were paid assassins sent by an author that's very jealous of how awesomely amazing your books are. And how awesomely amazing you are.

Aisling said...

Zaf you'll be grand. There's nothing to be scared about. Just be VERY VERY happy that you're getting to talk to him in person.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

It's alright, Zaf.

I'm so terrified of meeting Ellie in the Summer.

And, if there's actually a signing I can go to... I'm not sure I'd want to go. I'd be too terrified. >-<

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

I dont know what my feelings are they range of scared to death to happy beyond anything


AAHA!!!!! Well least he can't run away in fear Mary will keep him in line

He told me on Twitter i interacted with VEX!!!!

*faints*

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Vex is damn sexy;D

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

God only knows what I am doing near Vex but I told Derek I loved Ravel...he can't possibly pull a Serpine and Harmony on me i mean Ravel and Zafira are on opposite Councils whom are at WAR

Aisling said...

I can't find my shoes.

I had them earlier and now they've vanished.

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

*sits in tree*

Damn I am scared to DEATH i have a gut feeling if Zafira is near Vex she either is seriously in love or fighting

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

I GIVE IN with chapter 6. ._.

PrawnsTheLeprechaun (Seoirsín/Georgina Bashford) said...

Really? Patty? That just reminds me of Spongebob Squarepants and gives me the need to wear my yellow jeans (or 'Banana Jeans' as my uncle/godfather Derek insists on calling them . . . )

I got Spongebob Squarepants PJ's for my brother last Christmas . . . He screamed >:)

I've never been to a book fair but when the day comes, I'm gonna ROCK MY CHARACTER CLOTHES!

Just as much as I got my FUNKY LEPRECHAUN ON for Lá Fhéile Pádraig :c)

Also, to you fabulous people - of course that includes Derek - here's a late Lá Fhéile Pádraig Shona Díobh Go Léir!

I don't know Spanish, at all.
But I'm not too bad with German. :3
Germany's a nice place, to my own experience. A part of me regrets not joining the German Exchange.
Granted, my experiences with restaurants and pillows there weren't brilliant, but Derek's easily top mine. :P

Skul-ManFan said...

Happy Paddy's day Derek! I hope you celebrated as I did - with a congratulations cake given to your uncle with congrats on getting his PhD that was meant to be a Swiss roll that you baked but that you couldn't roll and so turned into a Flat Cake, a term courtesy of your uncle. And, of course, your mother told everyone the amazing Flat Cake of chocolate sponge filled with raspberry coulis of your own making and whipped cream was MEANT to be rolled into a traditional Swiss shape. And embarrassed you in front of all of your family. Plus, the cake was decorated with a shamrock made out of green M&Ms. Epic. I'm a mind reader, you say? Nah, just awesome.

And Ulcabhábhan, I am a TOTAL SWIFTIE!

I need to bed now. g'night.

"Ominous. Mr Ominous."


Hi Thrust. XD

Jubilance Glee (JUBSTER!) said...

HELLOOOOOOOOOO i poofed

Fabi said...

Frogs. I can hear frogs. Also, I can't hear rain. It's odd. And I can see the stars... It's usually cloudy/rainy every time there are auroras or a lunar eclipse. The Solstice Eclipse, even! Also, Aurora Borealis twice! I saw them the third time, though, before I fell asleep... They were very faint and they didn't dance across the sky like they would in Norway. They more sort of...shifted. Then they turned pinky-purple. I almost thought it was some sort of weird belated and strangely mesmerizing sunset, but a quick Internet search the next morning told me that it was them. It had been on the northern horizon, and the auroras had changed to pink, so it was definitely them. It was only partly cloudy that night. [laughs]

Fabi said...

I went off on a tangent again!

I was just thinking about how there was supposed to be a comet visible a few weeks ago, but it was cloudy. There's nothing interesting in the stars tonight. [Creepy fortune-teller voice] When Mars and Venus are aligned, you will have to face your darker soul-half.

...

Never mind.

Mr Ominous said...

Hi all.

If any of you see me tomorrow morning, could you please remind me to make a lotus for Quinnie? I'll probably remember, since I asked someone to remind me, but I really would appreciate it if you'd remind me anyway, anybody. :-)

I've owed her an origami lotus for almost a month now, but I keep forgetting.

And goodnight!

Death, I am emailing you, or composing the email anyway. Glad to know you're feeling better, the other parts not so much. [hugs] I'm so sorry about your uncle...

Now I really have to go...night.

Well I don't want to leap to conclusions here but I don't think anybody is on.

Lorelei Izabell Fetch (AKA Izz) said...

Well that stuffs that plan.

Mistical Future said...

LOL
But kinda scary how they look alike!

And i'm VERY glad that your not dead Derek!!!

... or are you a clone ... and they kidnaped the real Derek Landy and replaced him with you? and they gave you all of his memories ... and kept the real Derek for cloning of his organs!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ... well I guess if you have all of his memories and thought then your a good replacement

BUT I WANT THE ACTUAL DEREK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

... no offence if you are a clone! but I like the original!!!

Miss Cain said...

...Hullo?

Summer Willow said...

Derek.
I too have clones hunting me.
*nods sincerely*
My pillow choked me last night and then my cousin turned up at 9 at night!
And I have a really weird reoccurring nightmare that could be true.
Every night Nye comes and stands over my bed and experiments on me.
And wipes my memory of it.
...
IT COULD BE TRUE!
And the dreams are my subconscious trying to alert me.
...
...

How are you, mon ami?

Miss Cain said...

I'm good. :D
Had a literacy excursion today and got to wear free dress. :3
I also learnt a lot of new writing skills. So that should help with my writing.

How are youuuu??

Charisma Thorne said...

Sounds awesome!!

I'm good, thanks! Tired as hell from work experience, but it's great because I don't have to go in until five, so I have most of the day free!!

Miss Cain said...

The rest of the day free sounds like heaven to me. *has too much homework and school*
I need a 3 day week...
XD

I might try writing some more of my HGC entry thingy...
Wbd.

Charisma Thorne said...

Eh, I have a bit of homework ... But watching Aaron Tveit on YouTube is more fun!

Miss Cain said...

YouTube is amazing. :D
So much better than homework.
And YouTube is probably the main reason I'm up late finishing homework. IT'S SO DISTRACTING.

Charisma Thorne said...

YES, YOUTUBE IS BEST.

And my husband Aaron Tveit is so darn beautiful.

Charisma Thorne said...

OOooo near deds.....

Charisma Thorne said...
