Scarlet in the Snow – Author Speaks About

I’ve just read this book and will post my review shortly but thought I’d add this for something a little different.

Michael Grant – Gone

I went looking for the book trailer for Michael Grant’s new book Light but it’s not there yet so I thought I’d put up this little clip about Gone as a teaser.

Derek Landy Q & A part 4

Finally, after a uploading problem I can now post the final part of the Derek Landy Q & A. Sorry it took so long guys but enjoy.

Derek Landy Q & A part 3

So moving right along, this was a great question about magic.

Also don’t forget to leave a comment if you want to go into the draw to win the signed book. Competition closes Aug 31 2012.

Derek Landy Q & A part 2

Now moving into the next part of the Q&A  I have to tell you this comes with a spoiler alert about character development in the later books.

Wish it didn’t take so long to get these edited and uploaded for you but bear with me I will endeavour to get the rest up over the weekend.

Derek Landy Q&A part 1

So I finally got it up, the first part anyway. I will just keep posting in manageable sections until I have done all the footage.

The sound isn’t brilliant, it is better than I thought at one point I did think I may have to transcribe it for you, fortunately not.

Derek Landy – Tour Teaser and Book Giveaway

Okay so I was going post all the Landy stuff today but it may take a while to piece it together so in the mean time I will say it was awesome.

Right from the beginning he engaged his audience. He was great fun to listen to.

He began by talking a little about himself and his life. He also told some funny stories about his pets before moving into a Q&A session.

The questions the audience asked were interesting and his answers insightful. He addressed such things as character development and a possible Skulduggery movie.

As my footage is still importing I will post instead the information for the book giveaway. All I want you to do is post a comment that tells me who your favourite Skulduggery character is and why. Winner will get this book.

It is signed.

And just to prove it is a legit signature here’s my signed book with the same signature

I also got something for my friend Erin

Now you have to come and visit me sometime babe.

To all you wonderful Skulduggery fans I will hopefully manage to get the footage sorted for tomorrows upload.
