Ten more days to win the Graphic Novel!

December 13th, 2007

There’s only ten more days before all entries must be submitted for the Holiday fanfiction graphic novel contest. Remember, you don’t have to celebrate Christmas! The fanfiction just has to take place somewhere during the winter holidays!

For clarification, to receive the Graphic Novel you will give your address to MichaelM, and only to MichaelM, and he will send you a copy of the Graphic Novel through a bookstore that delivers to your country. It will be handled with the utmost care for confidentiality.

For a recall the rules are:

1. The fanfiction must be PG-13 or less.
2. The fanfiction must include an Artemis Fowl character.
3. The fanfiction must take place during the holiday season.
4. You must have submitted it by December 23rd 2007.
To enter, post your story on the archive, then send me a link at xblackopalx@gmail.com

If you don’t have an email address, please find a way to inform me of your entry! Don’t just assume that I will see it, the archive is active and it will be easy to miss.

If you have any questions comment here or email me.

Good luck to all of you, and happy writing!

Eoin Colfer Interview – HMI TV Show!

December 11th, 2007

Eoin Colfer did a full TV interview last night, and it’s free for download from the RTE website.

The interview talks about a fair few things. Here’s a quick run through of the topics:

  • Colfer’s childhood influences, such as the stories his Dad used to tell and his favorite book; Huckleberry Finn.
  • The reason that Colfer really does love the Artemis graphic novel.
  • The character of Artemis Fowl and his developing personality.
  • Colfer’s experience as a teacher and his decision to become a writer.
  • The difference between boy and girl readers, and even between child and adult readers.
  • Airman; “If I had to be remembered in 100 years… this one would be the one.” Colfer is happier with this book than he ever was with any other, so it must be good!
  • Colfer’s writing process.
  • The movie; Companies still arguing over CGI vs live action. Tribeca wants CGI and Harvey Weinstein wants live action.
  • Half Moon Investigatios TV series being developed by the BBC!!

You can download the full thing from the RTE website. Sadly it’s in Real Player though so you’ll need that installed (It’s free), and it streams so you’ll need a broadband connection.

Artemis Fowl News for 2008

December 7th, 2007

Comic Book Resources have published a great Artemis Fowl article, with plenty of news in there for us. To sum up the main points:

  • Artemis Fowl Book 6 will be called The Time Paradox, and it’s due for release July 15th 2008.
  • Colfer loves the Graphic Novel, and is hoping to have the 2nd book out by the end of 2008 (Don’t forget that you can win a copy of the first one here!).
  • The movie is still stumbling along, but no great leaps have been made.

Two Artemis Fowls, in one year? That can’t be a bad thing!
