Step Onto Demon Road

Well now, fancy meeting you here.

As promised, here is the second part to my Laura Talks Books exclusive – again, you can thank my wonderful university for the pleasure. The third and final part will come later this month – so keep your eyes peeled.

Though, not literally. That would be gross. For the love of God, please don’t start peeling your eyeballs. Your parents will be SO mad at me…!

Ahem. As I was saying. This is your second little treat, and it just so happens to be a world exclusive interview with the one and only, Derek Landy, as he talks about his new upcoming trilogy, Demon Road, for the first time in an interview.

I’m too good to you. I really am.


Laid To Rest – An interview With Derek Landy

Courtesy of my wonderful university and my digital  journalism module, you are ALL being treated to another two (three if you’re good) original Laura Talks Books posts.

You lucky devils.

So, you all know the story of how Derek Landy got started. For ten long, gruelling years he worked on the family farm dreaming of becoming a writer…

It wasn’t until he was staying in a hotel in London in 2005 that he got his idea for Skulduggery Pleasant and started writing it…

Nine years on from that night, he has published nine Skulduggery novels, a Skulduggery spin-off, a Skulduggery World Book Day novelette and a book of Skulduggery short stories…

Ever since the first book was published in 2007 his life has changed dramatically. Derek has swapped the farmer’s life for the life of an avid movie prop collector…

And he owes it all to Skulduggery Pleasant…!!

And now here comes the interesting bit! Here is my two minute audio interview with the Golden God himself, talking all about Skulduggery and the end of an era…

Make sure you stay tuned -over the next day or two I’ll be putting up a worldwide exclusive video interview with Derek himself as he talks about his new, upcoming trilogy…
