Today is a very special day because we are celebrating ten years of TMISource.com! 😀
On April 5, 2011, the day City of Fallen Angels was published, TMI Source was born. ❤
Founded by Alyssa, we have witnessed sixteen (!) Shadowhunters book releases so far and aim to be here for many more.
A lot has happened during the last decade!
We have been so lucky because we covered many of Cassie’s tour events in the USA and Europe, conventions where Cassie was at, Alyssa was given the amazing opportunity to visit the Mortal Instruments: City of Bones movie set, I attended the European premiere of the movie, we had Shadowhunters Chats on YouTube, we reviewed the TV show, shared the latest book news and snippets, interviewed Cassie and also Sarah Rees Brennan, Holly Black and Josh Lewis, we hosted giveaways, reviewed various of Cassie’s books, were kindly sent ARCs/ARC boxes by Cassie’s publishers, were part of the recent Chain of Iron Letter Game and I chatted with Cassie on Valentine’s Day over on our Instagram.
These past ten years have been nothing short of amazing and also unreal at times so I would like to at first thank Cassie, Alyssa, Cassie’s publishers, the different publicists/marketing people I worked with, Cassie’s agency and of course you! If you guys would not read the posts, like and comment – please do comment more 😉 – TMI Source would most likely not be here today.
To celebrate this big day for the page, I teamed up with Cassie’s different publishers in the US and the UK and also Cassie herself to host some incredible giveaways!
Edited to add on April 13: The giveaways are now over. Thank you for entering!

To kick off the giveaways, I’d like to know what your favourite memory related to The Shadowhunter Chronicles (it can be a moment from a book – please add a spoiler warning if you talk about Chain of Iron – a tour event, meeting fellow book fans in unusual places, etc.). Comment below and good luck to everyone! All your comments need to get approved first so don’t worry if you don’t see yours immediately after posting it.
That’s not all, though! We are also celebrating on Instagram Live with Cassie Clare. On April 10 at 3 pm EST/9 pm Berlin time I will be chatting with Cassie about Chain of Iron and whatever comes to mind. 😉
Happy anniversary to us and thank you for the past decade!
