November newsletter: bookish news and a new ‘Chain of Gold’ snippet
A new issue of Cassandra Clare’s monthly newsletter landed in her subscribers’ inboxes yesterday so today we have a new Chain of Gold snippet, art, tour news and more for you!
The new excerpt from Chain of Gold features an angry Anna and Cordelia:
Anna was in trousers and a jacket of sharp French tailoring. Her blue eyes were the exact color of Will’s, darker than Lucie’s: they matched her waistcoat, and the lapis head of her walking stick.
“Have you seen James?” Cordelia demanded without preamble. “No,” said Anna shortly. “No clue as to his whereabouts, I’m afraid.”
Cordelia frowned, not because of James, but because of Anna’s expression. “Anna? What’s wrong?”
Anna scowled. “I had come here to horsewhip Charles, but it appears that he is elsewhere.”
“Charles Fairchild?” Cordelia echoed blankly. “I believe he’s at home—he called a gathering at his house for high-ranking Clave officials. You could go horsewhip him there, but it would make for a very strange meeting.”
“High-ranking Clave officials?” Anna rolled her eyes. “Well, no wonder I don’t know about it. So I suppose I’ll have to wait until later to puncture him like the pustulant boil he is.”
I wonder what Charles did to make Anna have such a violent reaction to him.
Furthermore, there is new art by Charlie Bowater. Have a look Lucie!
Doesn’t she look stunning? Will and Tessa have beautiful children! I also love Lucie’s dress. ❤
Another exciting thing that Cassie shared online: the very first look at a Chain of Gold ARC!
I cannot wait to see BookTubers, Bookstagrammers and book bloggers posting photos of their ARCs! 😀
Once Chain of Gold is published on March 3, 2020 Cassie will go on tour and so far she’s “likely to hit Atlanta and Texas, among other stops.” More details will be announced in December’s newsletter so subscribe if you haven’t already!
