Time to Come Clean

For the past four days, I've been on an island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. I scheduled a number of posts to appear after I was gone. (Pretty sneaky, right?) Unfortunately, I wasn't able to write more than four in advance! So this will be the last post until Thursday. Which is sad. But look at it this way. There will be tons of stuff to discuss when I'm back!

Feel free to talk amongst yourselves. And whatever you do--don't start sniffing Sharpies!

That's like the April Fool's day prank from Google. Except in reverse. (

I guess that makes up for not having an April Fool's day prank. But how do you approve comments while you're away?

Well, you can't have been on the island of oddities for more thsn (checks blog) five days because it says that you posted a comment on the post about underwater subway cars on April 9th. Unless, you hired someone to post a comment (ah, I just love a good mystery. WE do them as tests in our school).

ANANKA!!! Okay... Random question: What's the next Kiki Strike book about!?!? ('cuz I dreamed it was something about New York getting melted in acid rain... AND GLOWING GREEN!! XD) Please tell me it's not gonna be that!!! >.<

Ok, guys. Give ananka some space. Her whole life ISN'T on this blog, you know. She has to do things for herself sometimes, too. And if that's being on some island in the atlantic ocean, then, yeah, let her do it.

Besides, it's already Tuesday night. We can live without for a day or two. Think about what Kiki would want; us to be grumbling about ananka not writing, or trying to figure out WHY she isn't writing? Which island could she be on? Why would she be there? Just a vacation, research for the next book, or something else? Is there anything suspicious going on? Come on girls (and guys)! Be the Irregular you've always wanted! You've got the time! Make Kiki proud!

You have awesome dreams, Kiki. :D
She says it's about Betty, and takes place in Paris and NY.
...And the next one is about Luz. (And, I'm guessing, has to do with London somehow??)

Hi! Finnally found your page, and I think it's awsome, you're awsome and of course, Kiki and the Irregulars are awsome! After reading the book, I've got the feeling that there's more to find out, things who aren't written in the book. Is it? Anyway, the book has made me wanting to become a spy, and I'm going to! ^^ I've acctualy found some interesting things already, even if my hometown Stockholm isn't as interesting as New york. Thanks for a wonderful book!

(Sorry for possible spelling mistakes, I'm swedish and don't speak english that well.)

I think she's really in New York and is trying to see if we're falling for this. Like in book 1 with Kiki going to 'China'.

I have been thinking she is away in England with Evanna Lynch who is rumored to be cast as Kiki in the movie.
I have also been thinking that because the next book focuses on Betty (right?) that she might be in Paris doing some research because Paris is the fashion capital of the world and if Betty could go anywhere it'd probably be there.
we're getting really sublime weather here in new york, and friday's earth day sooo she's missing quite a bit because folks get crazy in the village on earth day!!!
I love this city and I hope Kirsten/Ananka is back soon because I don't have school friday and I'm planning on conjuring up some mischief, and I'm sure she'd appreciate that.

I think she's in Hawaii. Oh good she's coming back today.
I have to think about what I would do if I was entering a contest about the future and the environment... I'd do NY tossing their subway cars.
And I'm decorating a binder in art and it's black with the Irregulars logo and quotes from the Is on the back.
sorry long post

There's gonna be a Kiki Strike MOVIE?!?!?!?

I saw in an interview that kirsten never do research. But I can't be sure because in another interview she said that before writing "The empresse's tomb" she was watching asiatic horror movies and where going to museums, so I don't no... Except from that, research seems as the best explanation to me. But what island??

"I think she's really in New York and is trying to see if we're falling for this. Like in book 1 with Kiki going to 'China'." I like that idea! Besides, manhattan is an island in the Atlantic ocean to.

IM: I love what you've done on your blog! You're a genius. I need to visit more often!

Kiki: Jin Ai is on the money about Book 3. But acid rain eating NY . . . maybe you're on to something there!

Anonymous #8: I agree with Raph, very inspirational post! And well put, too!

E-Star: I'm so glad you found us! I think Stockholm is a pretty amazing place. I was there for a little while a year ago, and I loved it. Maybe I'll come back to visit soon. And by the way, your English is FANTASTIC.

As for the research, I didn't have to do much for the books because I like to write about things that have fascinated me for years! I've been reading about NY history and ghosts and underground places since I was in school.

Anonymous #9: Wow, you know more about the Kiki movie than I do. ;) And PLEASE let me know what kind of mischief you end up conjuring!

Everyone: Stop impersonating me. ;)
