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 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.

The Hunting Ground – Book Trailer

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.

Neil Gaiman and Shaun Tan

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.

Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler On Their New Book

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.

It’s Finally Here!

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.
