Dear members,

Today, May 25th, The Necromancer is published in the US.
This is the fourth book in the 6 book sequence which, so far, comprises of 1611 manuscript pages and 390,523 words.

When I set out to begin this series, somehow I could never see this far ahead and yet, now I am deep into the Warlock and suddenly the end is in sight.

Very early on, in late September 2008, I was approached by Zephfire and asked if I would mind if some fans created a forum based around the Flamel series. I was flattered (as every writer should be when people want to talk about their books!) and on the 2nd October 2008 I became (after Zephfire) the second member of the forum. Today we have just over 1500 members, and there have been over 41,000 posts right across the forum threads.

I have been thrilled with the enthusiasm, the excitement and energy which greets each new topic. I am always delighted when I find someone researching their way to the truth and I am incredibly pleased when some event or character in the books send a forum member off on their own research.

I drop into the forum almost every day and now count the forum mods amongst my friends. Knowing that the forum is a safe place for readers of all ages is incredibly important to me and to the mods also, and they work hard to ensure that the forum is both generous and welcoming to everyone. We are, I am pleased to say, flame free.

I am sometimes asked what will happen to the forum when the Flamel series finishes. The forum is not going to go away. The last Flamel, The Enchantress, will be published in hard back in 2012, then in paperback in the USA in 2013, and then foreign editions will continue to appear for years afterward. And of course, the new series, The Earthlords, is on the way. There have been hints in the series about the Earthlords and some bigger clues in The Necromancer. There are lots to come.

The Portal and forum have always been the number one fansite, but today, on the launch of The Necromancer, as a way of saying thank you to everyone for their support, I am declaring Flamel's Immortal Portal, the only OFFICIAL fan site of the series.

A big thank you to everyone for reading, writing, debating, arguing and supporting. You - all of you, mods and members - have made this happen.

With best wishes,

Michael

Whoa. Mind Exploded.

Congrats to everyone, especially the mods, admins for all the work you guys put in to make this possible. It's really a great thing you've got going here.

To Mr. Scott - Thanks for all the awesomeness you give to the Forum, for answering the questions, for the reveals big and small, and for writing this incredible series.

And to all the members - met some awesome people, talked some awesome theory. You guys are all insanely awesome, and it's great to hang out, theorize blindly, and occasionally conquer the world with you all.

Can't wait to read the Necromancer, and here's to plenty more Forum/Portal awesomeness in the future.

And again to the mod/admin staff - Congrats guys. You deserve it. flamelssecret/bow.gif

Thank you to the Admin and Mod teams for keeping up with the, er... "excitement" that goes around on the daily basis. As our numbers grow the Forum just keep getting better, keep it up guys. And to Mr. Scott for taking time out of his busy, busy schedule to read our theories and answer questions.

I would like to say thank you to you Mr. Scott, for giving us the distinct pleasure of being official now. I love your writing style and the way you bring your stories to life. I also love the way you are active in the forum and that you read and respect everyone's opinion on the series and the research. You Mr. Scott are a true writer and a hero of mine, keep up the good work and please continue to amaze and inspire all the new readers, writers, and fans, like you have amazed and inspired me.


And a thank you to all the Administrators and Moderators for keeping this one of the friendliest and most fun sites I have ever been too. Also for making this site safe for everyone and making all the members old and new feel respected and welcome. This site would not be here if it wasn't for you all and I thank you for the time and effort that you all put into the forums and the Portal.

We need a big thank you sign emote.

Thank You

I've known Nicholas Flamel for a very long time. He is many things-Dangerous and devious, cunning and deadly, a good friend and an implacable enemy-but he comes from an age when a man's word was indeed precious. If he gives you his word that he's done all this for your protection, then I am suggesting that you believe him. ~ Scathach

Thanks to Michael and everyone that has made this such a fun site to be a part of. When I heard about the portal and the forum from Zeph I knew I had to come in and be a member. That seems like forever ago and now I am so happy and proud to be part of the team and more so the extended Flamel family. I count so many of you as not just forum buddies but as my friends. Thanks to Zeph and the whole team for making this site so very special to all of us, and congratulations to you all for you enthusiasm and excitement, which is infectious!

You never knew. That was his power. The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. And like that, poof. He's gone.

Wow, that is, quite simply, really cool! flamelssecret/clap3.gif

I'm heading down to my town's library at lunch today to see if they got The Necromancer in, and hopefully they have so I can read for the rest of the night!

Thanks to Michael, Zeph, the whole Mod team, and all of the members for making this such a wonderful place. You're all great!
