So yeah on Sunday I went to the Bluewater signing and met some awesome new people including Derek Landy, Lenka, Robin, and some awesome people I already knew, Grace (Ven), Chan and my brother Pyro. I got up at 6 a.m and spent several happy hours waiting in the queue. Whilst waiting in the queue Derek walked around to see everyone before he began signing and called out to me "Hey nice fez. When I finally got to meet him he was like "Hey it's fez guy!" So yeah I shall be forever known to Derek as Fez Guy :P When I told him I was Octa he was really happy and knew who I was and everything. Infact he knew all the bloggers there. Derek took a picture of us on his own phone, signed my fez and my poems (I must have been the only person not to bring a Skulduggery book to sign) he answered loads of questions and gave me a hug. He is so awesome in real life. Most questions related to KoTW so I won't spoil anything but I did ask about the Dead Men. It turns out that there are only seven Dead Men at any one time but that they've changed over the years. Thus resolving my problem of nine Dead Men when it explicitly says there are seven. I gave Derek a handwritten copy of Golden God and some of your fanfiction (Kallista's Slender Man story, Thalia's Sherlock FF, Quinn and Bryony's HP FF and DogLikesBones Zombie Competition Entry.

Shortly after this photo I almost fell over.
Fezzes are cool. Especially this one.
Meet Thrasherbelle. I wore him to the signing (it's a ring, don't think you can see that from the photo).
If Clarabelle and Thrasher had children I like to think they'd look something like this.
So all I have left to say is DFTBA, love yo' faces, and may you have a lifetime of Derektastic days ahead.
