This site is amazing- Matt strongarmed me into signing on. I am glad you people like my Artemis so much. He is fun to write about- when I am not too busy cheking out sites. Is this a blog? Am I blogging now?

Um...hello, I'm voldy92, a moderator here at AFC. For safety reasons (sorry if you are the real Mr. Colfer, but I must do my job): if you are not the real Eoin Colfer, I'm afraid we will have to ban you. I will not ban you yet, as I will first talk to Matt, verify your information. Sorry, regular procedures. Razz

But if you're the real Eoin Colfer...Oh my God!!!

Well... Err... Hello Eoin, I'm sorry but I don't actually believe that you are real mr. Colfer.
But if you are the real Eoin Colfer, it's great that you've joined here, welcome!

Wow... if this is the real Colfer, then zOMG! Wow!

But then again, I can think of a fair number of n00bs etc that would love to pull a prank like this on us. So if you're not really Colfer, I'd advise you either to give up this joke, or just leave.

Well, if it turns out to be a joke, either way, they'll have to be banned.

Hello All, again.
Sorry to freak everyone out a bit. It is actually Eoin Colfer. Check it out with Matt Wall- he said it would make his day if I logged on. So here I am.
Any questions?

I don't think anyone's really freaked out, it's just that it's hard to recognize a person from their writing style, and there's no way to tell that it's actually you over the internet.

Anyway, welcome to the forums. No questions from me right now; I've read the recent interview with AFC and I'm all set. So... Yeah. Help yourself to the ever-replenishing box of truffles, they're always around here somewhere. Razz

So it is definitely you...? Wow!

Well...hi! Razz Honestly, I don't know where to start....I had originally written a letter for you, but I never actually sent it...It's in my drawer, gathering dust. But I would love to send it to you now.

Welcome to Artemis Fowl Confidential! I am Metin, or voldy92. You probably have never heard of me, but you will soon see my name on book covers. Razz

I have a question: What advise would you give for us young, aspiring writers who plan on publishing their novels...soon?

Ok, in all seriousness it is trully amazing that you have joined - we couldn't more honoured! Welcome to our humble abode! I'm Marissa, age 16 from NZ, and I hand you a virtual fortune cookie ^^ You have no idea how much Artemis Fowl has affected my life - if it wasn't for books I wouldn't have met all these amazing people *huggles all AFCers* You are a fantastic writer and I just can't wait for The Lost Colony Very Happy

Ok, my question - Are you happy with the script for the movie? Is it true to the book?

(If it isn't you I've made a right fool outta myself Embarassed Oh well, it was worth the fangirlyness anyway, heh heh ^^)

Hello Mr.Colfer. It would be really nice if it's really you. And we're all really grateful if it's you! I live in the very cut off from AFC world of India [s]we don't ride elephants![/s] so it would be really nice if this was you and you could answer our questions.
Firstly, how's the movie coming and how long will it take? Do you have an estimated release year? Razz And secondly, have you started writing the sequel to The Supernaturalist??

It was very nice of you to come. Hoped you liked AFC and you're always welcome here! Smile

SO everyone, Our Lord is among our ranks... look busy!

Thanks very much for visiting, Eoin! You really have made my day! Well, you've made my life, but hey!

Yes... I have a question... how long do you think we can go without having a nervous breakdown waiting for "The Lost Colony?" We NEED that book... *Growls*

No, this isn't a blog, blogs are usually defined as a "online diary", read more from en.wikipedia. This is a forum...

Questions answered

Postby Eoin » Sat Jun 24, 2006 11:17 am

Hello again,
I had no idea readers and future writers were so in touch with each other- what a powerful network- I suppose Artemis himself would definitely use a tool like this.
Anyway- I was asked about tips for young writers and all I can say is you seem to be doing everything already- you are obviously reading a lot- and writing through this site- so just keep it up- there are no shortcuts- a book is going to take a year plus to write and there is no way around that. Commitment and long hours alone are the writer's lot- but there is nothing to beat the feeling of holding your own published book in your hands.

Regarding the movie script- I am currently working on it with a famous Hollywood director. We wanted to give the fans the book, but also a brand new explosive ending. I think we have come up with something you will all like. But it's all hush hush at the moment.

Finally- The Lost Colony will be here sooner than you think- due to demand- the publishing date has been moved up to August.

Wow! Hello Mr.Colfer. Sorry for the earlier suspicion Embarassed
I'm Holly, a really really big fan of yours, and a mod of AFC.


I do have one question: Do you think there'll be any Holly/Trouble 'shipping before the end of the AF series? And how many books do you plan to write in total [for AFC].
And one other tiny little question which has been on a few of our minds: Why Russia? You have a lot of Russian references in your books, any particular reason why that Country? We even had a thread devoted to it Click here

And again, <givescookie> it's an honour to actualy [cyberically] speak with you! Wow...
