OMG! You are the BEST!
A new skulduggery pleasant!!!!!
Oh god,thank you so much Derek!some might say that the series should be left as it is, but I trust that you'll write a fantastic book again :)
I jumped out a window after I saw this! Fair enough it was on the ground floor, but still... a window's a window. Anyway fair play Derek. Will keep me going until next Summer!😊
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG (repeat ad infinitium)I am so excited. You have no idea how excited I am. I started reading Skulduggery in my early years of high school. I basically grew up alongside Val! And now there will be MOAR Skulduggery!? *high pitched screams of delight*
Omg I'm so excited! Everyone's still asleep and I have a feeling I may have woke them up by literally screaming with excitement. It's going to be fantastic!!
doors are for people with no imagination, the window was a good choice.
OH MY GOSH THIS IS THE BEST NEWS EVER THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!! Your books are so important in my life and knowing there's going to be more Skulduggery Pleasant is the most AWESOME THING EVER!!!!
Yay!!! I haven't been able to get into the Demon Road series so more Skulduggery is fantastic news.
I'm so excited now, ahaha :D I can't wait!! ^-^
BEST BIRTHDAY ANNOUNCEMENT EVER! Can't wait to meet you tomorrow Derek. Again. For the 5th time.
All aboard the hype train! Ten books in ten years is a furious pace of writing, Derek. I don't know how you manage it! Congratulations though on the new series.
I AM REBORN god bless
Dear Mr. Landy,you have no idea what joy you have brought into my life by writing the Skulduggery Pleasant books and I'm unbelievablyt thankful for that. I've always dreamed of a next book and I cannot believe that my dream is coming true. Thank you so so much! Now I'm startingt to count the days until the book is released - I'm sure it's 100% worth the wait. I cannot believe this! You're absolutely awesome and amazing! A pure god! The god of the writers along queen J.K. Rowling. I just wanted to say thank you for your wonderful books! Joyful greetings from a huge fan from Germany! (I read all your book in English. It's far better than reading them in German!)Shutout to all the minions here! Today is a day to celebrate!
....Why must you toy with my emotions in this way, Derek
Oh my God Oh my God Oh my God Oh my God Oh my God I might actually die!!! This is the best thing to ever happen!!!! Eeeeeeeeeeeekkkkkkk!!!! I might die!!
YES YES THANK YOU GOOD SIR YOU ARE A GREAT HUMAN YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
I'm an Australian fan and my friend and I legit screeched when we saw this, I'm crying right now
Yayayayay more books! \o/
Holy fudge balls
THIS IS AMAZING. THIS IS WHAT WE LITERALLY SCRATCHED OUT IN HOPES AND DREAMS AND NOW ITS COME BACK. I cannot believe this, thank you so much this means everything.
OH MY GOD WE'RE BACK
OMG YES!!! I JUST ACCIDENTALLY BROKE MY EARPHONES BY JUMPING UP AND I MAY HAVE WOKEN UP EVERYONE IN THIS PREMIER INN BUT YES YES YES!!!
Omg! I'm actually too shocked to feel anything
Definitely come back to Australia, man! Both in the real world and in the book. Convinced a bunch of girls at uni to read the books and now they can't get enough of it, so it'll be pretty awesome to see their faces light up when i tell them the news.Cheers so much for this though. I didn't get across how cool it was to meet you in Melbourne a few years ago! If you read this and remember shoving a kangaroo in my face (suppose it happens all the time), just gotta say I got into Engineering/Science in the city like I said I would. Just so you know ;)
OHMEEGEE!!! Best news EVARRRRRR!!!!! :D
Just woke up to this and OMIGOD*squealing intensifies*
Best news I have heard in a long time. Cannot tell you how happy to wake up.to this!!!!!!!
@Rhyds your phone deaded you come back to meee! Let us fangirl
Omg!!! This message has made me so happy!!!!! I can't wait to read your next skulduggery book, yay!!!!!!!!
Oh, what´s that? Tears? In my eyes???Oh my god (or my Skulduggery), I have tears in my eyes!!! :-)
-screams internally and externally-
Perfect reply :)👍
Pinch me, I must be dreaming.
So now, I have no excuse to not read book 9
i think it gets better, he said that the the 9th was the end of the "first" series, does this mean another 9 books? this is great
I can't wait!!! The suspense is already killing me, thank you Derek
So, I have been having a pretty low week, but this news has made me so happy... Yay🎉
yes!!! can't wait
I just want to be here myself for once to give my sincerest of thank-yous to you, our Golden God, Derek Landy. I am ineffably excited about this new book!!
This was very unexpected. But like, good unexpected. Great unexpected. I wonder if Valerie will be a main character in this one?
( you know he's going to kill someone or everyone so it's actually finished and we stop asking right? )
Omggg fuuuck yaaasss 🙊🙊🙊🎉🎉🎉🔥
I have been reading these books since I was 11 and now I'm 19 I'm so so happy that there is a tenth book coming out! Best news ever I love the series so much!

(*hits head on wall* sorry Lauren.. My emails aren't letting me send any Do you have Twitter or something?)
(UCAS .. WTF ?! YOU SENT ME AND OTHERS TAMPONS!)
(I SORTED OUT MY EMAILSTHEYY CAN NOW SEND)
No inky :(... my life has just collapsed... ive been fired... the forum where ive spent lots of my time recently is being closed... my whole life has just... gone...
(I can now send emails so I replied Bach)
Good evening! Lauren! :c I'm sorry.
I wonder if this means he'll be breathing life back into the blog.I love how there was a cover release for American Monsters on the down low with no actual blog post to go with it... and then he pretty much says "ah fuck it, here's another Skulduggery book".
Bruh, just bruh there's no words for this news like (: *leaves internet bro hugs for you guys here (; * *sachets out*
What a jammy, suspense keeping, attention seeking whore you are Landy!!I have been reading since I was 12, a lot of authors, a lot of series and a lot of books. Some emotional books. I never cried.Derek Landy hands me Skulduggery 8 and 9 and the prick makes me cry! He ruined me!!! I have only gotten out of my book coma that was cause by book 9!!Be warned Landy, if I shed a tear from book 10 to whatever number, I shall write you in something and kill you horribly and then hit you over the head with a book the next time I see you.
OMG....Thank you thank you thank you Mr Landy, hoping Donegan and Gracious are still alive. All Skulduggery characters are totally awesome, can't wait. Ronnie (age 12)
@DL, when you eventually tour here, make sure to hit up DC!
(I want him to come to WalesDoubt he will ;-;£
And Seattle!! :D
yeeeeeeeeup, what they all said ^^^^
*has things to do**screams**still has things to do**screams internally whilst doing things*
Can't wait for the best book ever to come out. When it does come out i am going to instantly get it. Skulduggery Pleasant RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I LITERALLY CAN'T EVEN!! Yes! I used that sentence!! These books are my favourite series!! I love, love, LOVE them!!! I'm so happy!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! Thank you, Derek for making something that I love so much even BETTER, which I didn't think was possible! I can't wait!!
Um Derek, you should *really* get your fridge checked out...That's all I have to say ;PThis post is over. Well, Series 1 of the post anyway...I saw the email newsletter notification appear & think my 1st thought was "So TDOTL isn't it?" followed by a shrug or 2 and a dry 'hmph', to be honest. I mean, I'm looking forward to it, and you'll probably find me in the obscenely-long queue-mageddon that is a Bluewater Signing.Part of me wasn't 'that' surprised that TDOTL wasn't completely it, given its loose interpretation of how one goes about a final book in the series - loose ends are tied up, and new ones aren't created - but maybe I'm just being cynical.For Season 3 of this comment, I'm going to remind you that SPI was NOT released in Sreleased in Summer '07, nay, it was released in APRIL of that year.Due to nosediving ratings, exceeding my budget, and the cast wanting to move on to other things, I'm using Season 4 of this comment to wrap my coment up
Yeah, but at least Whales is closer to Ireland and England than he ever even got to the US!You could fit England inside Ohio. It's so tiny.
Back again! Anyone??
( SNOooooooRRlaaaaaaaaaax )
Yes, but it takes longer to cross England than most foreigners would assume because our roads aren't so great.
^:P(That comment was missing the necessary emoji :P)
I think... Alastair is Westley, and Adra is Buttercup
I think the best reaction here was my nephew screaming YES I HAVE A HOPEFULLY NOT DEAD AUNT YOU CAN BE A GHOST!Yes, a lot of excitement is bubbling here. My sister moved home with my niece, nephew, 2 cats, 2 dogs and a female gerbil
Yeah, that's great. My son started to read No. 1 in June. Now he has a lot to read till 2017. Blut he is really excited. It's the only book he is really interested in.
BUSCUSE ME WHAT WHAT ITHATI WAS NOT EXPECTING THIS IM GONNA CRY
But the real question is are you going on tour?
(So.. Tired *collapses*?
I'm sad... But I'm happy...but I'm sad... but I'm happy!That nine book thing didn't last long... but its ok. I was sure you weren't going to make more at some point at least... which is good, it gives it an indiana jones feel.but there were questions that weren't answered, loose ends that were not closed...Derek, you seemed oddly satisfied by it and that made me upset... but I calmed down after a bit, and started to appreciate stories with loose ends and missing answers... what am I to believe now?Also I was finally calm I didn't need to have a heart attack every time you posted something in case it was new book related..... what is wrong with me?Now I have to buy a series again!!
So pumped for this book! :DAlso, Derek, if you ever feel like giving a talk to the Bath Spa Creative Writing MA lot, that would be kinda cool...just saying... ;)
Couldn't have said it any better
I got banned from B'n'Q today, some dickhead in orange asked me if I wanted a decking, luckily I got the first punch in (; (For people who don't know B'n'Q use google, easier than explaining (; )
I LOVE BLEACH i mean this new book
my kitty is snoring
YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!YOU ARE AWESOME! :D
I just failed my accounting exam, for a second time. i had 2 minutes left and the last question was one i knew how to do so i raced into trying to figure it out, but i got an answer that wasn't there so i chose randomly, then tried to go back and answer one i hadn't. It kicked me out and i automatically failed. You had to submit and finish. i've never wanted to die so badly before. There is literally no future for me except a waste of space, time and money... My mum's telling me to give up on Uni and get a full-time job. There is no way in hell anyone wants me for one. I can't even get a part-time job nevermind full-time.
*hugs Gemma*There are plenty of things out there for you, it'll be OK. If you're considering quitting uni, perhaps you could check out changing subjects first, but not being able to submit your answers hardly consitutes properly failing anyway, imo - It sucks that it happened that way, but it doesn't make you a failure in any way/shape/form, and it doesn't mean you don't have a chance. Getting a job without qualifying at uni is admittedly getting more and more difficult but it's still quite common to manage. I know you are a talented writer and an artist too. You're intelligent. You're creative. You're young. You're not limited here at all in either choice or time, you've got plenty of both. I'm sorry that today handed you a plate of crap, but it's one in a million and better things will happen, whatever you decide.Take care. <3
@Derek!!: I've been looking for words but I haven't found any yet so just, like, !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
( -waddles over and pulls Gemma into his chest--she's enveloped in softness- )
I haven't had a job in 8 months though... i'm scrounging off of my parents. I'm almost 19 and they've grounded me again to get this coursework done. Failed my exam and 600 words into my essay for the 5th, my brothers birthday. i've got 1,900 to go and now that i've started, that's going to be a pretty easy figure but i can't write essays for shit i don't see the point in them! i hate the school system even more now because i'm one of the people that's getting fucked over by it. When the fuck am i gonna need accounting? accounting fucking sucks. ;-; If i don't have a good job i can't move out which i realllllllllllllllly want to do, i can't travel, i can't get married i can't have kids. If i don't get a job i will have no life...
(-cuddles her more- you can get a job without having accounting or business and we will get a house soon :P )
Omg i passed...i e-mailed my lecturer and it actually went through and he said i got a very good pass...holy shit...
today isn't a good day for noelleuniversity starts soon but..:/i broke my track record last week, and caved, and ended up harming myself again, so I have to start the count all over again
Christ I hate myself7 from120... So close So far
(*rolls in* hello people*hugs those who want and needs it*)
you got some bleach?
With all of this hype about the new SP I just thought I'd put it out there that in also REALLY excited for American Monsters!
Tresha: *blushes more*I hadn't thought of a prize yet..*smiles up at him*Do you have a suggestion?Michael: *has literally no idea where to go**looks lost**decides to go right and starts walking that way - it's as good as any other direction**he has no money on him..**he'll have to work it out*
Flauros: it's up to you Al: *fillows*
Tresha: *kisses him gently, humming quietly*Michael: *first things first**ducks into a clothing shop, walking into the aisles**grabs a hat off the stand, one that will adequately cover is ears**needs something to cover his tail..*
Flauros; *kisses* whatever you desire Al: *watches*
Tresha: *smiles, leaning against his chest*I don't want anything, just you. Michael: *sees a long trench coat which should cover his tail, hopefully**grabs that too, slipping it on, putting the cap on his head**glances at the counter and tugs the cap low**sprints out the door, a loud "HEY" sounding out behind him*
Flauros: you have me Al: *chases after him*
Tresha: then I don't need anything else*smiles*ShopKeeper: *runs to the door*THEIF!!!Michael: *hears someone pursing and curses, running as fast as he can**darts down a side alley, jumping onto a dumpster then climbing quickly up the fire escape*
Flauros; *smiles*Al: *chases after him*
Tresha: Anyway, let's get this lump of metal upstairs. Michael: *uses his shoulder to break open the fire escape, albeit the wrong way, stumbling into the flats**runs through, going down the stairs quickly**steps off at a random floor, going to a random door**bursts it open with his shoulder, turning and closing the door quickly**breathes heavily, leaning against the door, listening to see if she lost the person*
Flauros: okayAl: *runs after him but keeps distance*
Tresha: *takes his hand, holding the metal*We'll need to find a blacksmith..Michael: *pants, staying leant against the door just so he can catch his breath**looks around the luckily empty apartment**quickly moves to the kitchen, looking for somewhere to hide**can hear Al coming*
i no longer know
(Are you okay Noelle..?)
Flauros: do you know any?Al; *walks quietly *
Tresha: No I don't.. Maybe someone here can do it?Michael: *takes the hat off, ears twitching, listening carefully**walks to the window, sliding it open, looking down at the drop*
Flauros; but who?Al: *fets closer*
Tresha: one of the guys maybe?Michael: *chews his lip, shoving the hat back on**climbs out the window, clutching the sill and sliding the window closed carefully**looks at the drop, maybe 5 stories, but the fire escape is next to him, just a small gap away**pushes off, falling, moving closer to the fire escape**grabs the railing, swinging into the side and crying out, letting go from the shock**lands on his back on the ground, all the wind being knocked out of him**coughs and splutters, whimpering, slowly standing up, stumbling out of the alley*
Flauros: we should askAl: *as he climbs out of the Windows she walks up to it* *stares*
Tresha: Definitely. *walks into the kitchen, setting the metal on the table*Michael: *hugs himself gently, wheezing slightly**walks a distance away before leaning against the wall, groaning, holding his ribs carefully*
Flauros: *smiles* you should still get a prizeAl: *races down the stairs* *isnt crazy enough to jump*
Tresha: Then think of one for me*smiles up at him*Michael: *it was quicker!**wears the footsteps on metal and curses**awkwardly half jogs because it's near impossible to run when winded and he has a cracked rib from hitting the fire escape**forces his body into a run, ducking into a tavern, going to the men's room*
Flauros: but what if you don't want to?Al; *sees him and follows*
Tresha: *blushes slightly*Don't want to what?Michael: *goes into the men's room, locking himself in a cubicle**leans back, relaxing slightly**he has two choices, front door or window..*
Flauros: what if you don't want what I choose?Al; *bashes down the bathroom door* come here Matthew!
Tresha: I'm sure I will..Michael: *stares at the cubicle door**she didn't..**looks up, window it is then**stands up, breaking the window with his elbow, knocking all the glass away**grabs the sill, hoping she hasn't got her gun out again*
Flauros: you will? Al; *cocks her gun* don't move
Tresha: I think you know me well enough to suggest something I'd like *smiles at him*Michael: *grits his teeth**wonders how quickly he could climb out**probably not faster then she can pull the trigger**stays still*
Flauros: kisses?Al; get down and come with me
Tresha: I like kisses*smiles*Michael: *drops back down, unlocking the cubicle door**glares at her from inside the cubicle*Go. Away.
Flauros: *smiles* have as many as you want Al: make me
Tresha: *presses against him, hands on his chest**kisses him passionately, smiling, sighing happily*Michael: *growls but walks over to her**he can't do much else, not when she has that gun*
Flauros; *kisses passionately *Al: now walk out of here
Tresha: I love you..Michael: *glares at her but walks out of the men's room into the main room of the tavern/inn*
Flauros; I love you tooAl: outside ^says quietly*
Tresha: *wraps her arms around his waist*Michael: *growls, walking outside slowly, looking for any chance of escape*
Flauros: *nuzzles her neck*Al: now.. What to do with you
Tresha: *blushes, humming happily and closing her eyes**walks backwards, tugging him after her*Michael: *turns and swings his fist for her face*
Flauros; *follows* hmmmm?Al; *didges*
Tresha: *smiles, leading him to their bedroom**kicks the door closed behind them both*Michael: *runs*
I have a job interview on Wednesday...
@Lauren: :) Good luck! I'm sure you can do fine. :)
Thank you... its at a bookstore so I hope ill get it... I think a bookstore would be a good environment for me... quieter than a diner haha
*nods* I love bookstores. :)
Good evening, Blogland!I... I'm sorry I abandoned you. I will, once again, try to frequent this place. Could someone please fill me in on what happened since I disappeared following the launch of Desolation?
bad day... really bad day
(*hugs the chloe*)
(*hugs ye Jai *)
(*cuddles* where were we?)
Tresha: *smiles, leading him to their bedroom**kicks the door closed behind them both*Michael: *runs past Al, sprinting away again, clutching his ribs**he can't let her catch him..*
Flauros: *smiles* what are you planning?Al; *runs after him*
Tresha: I just wanted a bit of privacy*kisses him gently, smiling*Michael: *pants, running slower than he usually would**stumbles down the alley way they first went into, groaning**throws his hat further down the alley to make it seem he went that way**climbs into one of those big dumpster things, hiding amongst the rubbish in hopes she won't check there*
Flauros: *kisses and smiles* okay Al; *follows the fat*
Tresha: *presses against him, kissing his neck gently*Michael: *stays as quiet as he can, waiting to hear her leave the alley so he can run the opposite direction*
Flauros: *moans slightly*Al: come out or I'll shoot !
Tresha: *grins slightly*Are you okay Flauros?Michael: *narrows his eyes**she can't know where he is, surely*
Flauros: y yes *blushes* Al; come on mstthew! *thinks* I'll give you something if you come here..
Tresha: *grins at him, kissing him gently again, kissing his cheeks over the blush*Michael: *for some reason he doesn't believe her**call it common sense*
Flauros; I I l love you Al: please *is almost begging*
Tresha: I love you too Flauros*smiles, kissing his neck again*Michael: *closing his eyes, she sounds too much like Alys**he hates the sound of her begging*
Flauros: *sniles*Al: *fakes whimpers*
Tresha: *leans against him, closing her eyes and relaxing**listening to his heartbeat*Michael: *groans, waking his head against the dumpster inside**curses the fact she sounds so much like Alys**jumps out, stumbling, running again, hoping for the best*
(I woke up with a cold at two am Mehh)
Feel better soon, Inky.
(Thank you Not long woken up again and I seem fine But that'll probably change once I leave the warmth of my bed)
(Hi!I watched more anime yesterday than in the last 19 years combined :O)
and here gentlebeings, we are witnessing the last breaths that blogland is taking. It's been a fun journey but it is more than definitely in its last year of evolution. After this, everything will start rotting and particles will decay slowly, making the amount of comments less and less every day. It's called the heat death.
What did you watch, kas?
Eh, Blogland comments fluctuate. It happens.
Fluctuate? God no, this is the death of the blog haha. Just look at the steady decline, and not just in the comments but in the lack of posts too. The only reason there's still posts left to comment on is because the comments have slowed down to almost nothing.On a side note Fera, have you kept up with Bleach? The ending is so awful it would be hilarious if it wasn't heartbreaking. I wonder if Chad has been fighting statues for ten years :')
Tresha: *leans against him, closing her eyes and relaxing**listening to his heartbeat*Michael: *groans, whacking his head against the dumpster inside**curses the fact she sounds so much like Alys**jumps out, stumbling, running again, hoping for the best*
Flauros; *kisses her nevk* Al; *hears him rustling and follows the sound*
Tresha: *hums happily, smiling, purring quietly*Michael: *hides, clutching his ribs**he can't keep running, it hurts too much**they can't send him to prison, not with the ears and the tail, the mortals would freak*
Flauros; .8stops and smiles*Al; please come out *fales innocence*
Tresha: *looks up at him, smiling*Michael: *covers his ears**honestly he isn't hidden well, he's just sat very obviously behind another dumpster*
