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

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
So here is a little teaser of The Hunting Ground.
That isn’t the only horror novel for teens written by McNish, here is a short introduction about Breathe by the author himself.
Okay, so no clue how you feel about these two guys but as far as I am concerned they are amazing contributors to the field of writing and illustration.
So anyway, you can read the article where Neil Gaiman interviews Shaun Tan, here, or maybe it’s just a discussion between peers, wither way it is an interesting read.
Here is a little clip of Jay Asher (New York Times best selling author) and the award winning Carolyn Mackler, talking a little about the new book – The Future of Us, which they co-wrote.
I know that all you fans know what comes out on the 8 & 9th of November (depending on which country you are in).
The long awaited conclusion to Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance Cycle.
So in honour of the event here are a few clips just for you guys.
(The sound on this one is a little quiet)
Hope it’s all that you want it to be.
