Good morning, afternoon or evening! It has been over a month since my last article and the last snippet because Cassandra Clare is currently very busy. She is on deadline and also “naming all the squirrels in my yard while I should be working.” Nevertheless, we got her monthly newsletter yesterday and it is filled with lots of amazing stuff. There is of course a new Chain of Thorns snippet, lovely, but spoilery fanart, another Instagram chat with yours truly, and more!
Let’s dive straight in!
“Regardless,” said Matthew, “I’m glad to hear that you’ve returned to your usual busy schedule of ruining London’s women for London’s men. Before I left for Paris the buzz was that you had gone entirely out of circulation.”
“Oh really?” said Anna.
“It was all anyone seemed to want to talk about at the Ruelle,” Matthew pressed. “Mundane, Downworlders, all the ladies remaining completely unseduced, and not happy about it.”
“I can hardly seduce everyone,” Anna shrugged. “Some of them will just have to seduce one another.”
Now it was Matthew’s turn to raise an eyebrow. “I’m not worried about them,” he said. “I’m worried about you.” In a lower voice he said, “I heard about Ariadne.”
I am not sure what to think of that last sentence. Is something wrong with Ariadne or is Matthew simply referring to what was going on between Anna and her in Chain of Iron? What do you guys think? Share your thoughts in the comments.
I have mentioned another Instagram Live chat with Cassie and you can find all the details below.
Secret Project Announcement
I’ll be hosting an Instagram Live on July 10th at 4pm New York time. Along with Cat from TMI Source, we’ll be welcoming an international group of fans to announce my new Secret Project (after which it will no longer be secret.) You are definitely going to want to check it out, so pop over on July 10th!
I am already super excited to be chatting with Cassie and other fans on July 10. Save the date (10 pm German time/9 pm London time) and see you soon! There is a countdown in our Instagram story (@tmisource) and you can totally use it to be reminded of the chat.
Ready for another announcement? Readers are still waiting for the US paperback edition of Chain of Gold to be published (August 31) and now we can also start counting down the days for Chain of Iron.
This looks very cool! I have not found an ISBN for the US paperback yet, but do not worry, I will share it and links as soon as possible.
Now for the spoilery art. It is very spoilery for Chain of Iron so skip the next bit if you have not yet read the book.
Seriously… do not look.
Final spoiler warning!
I love them! Look at Thomas and how he has to bend his knees to be the same height as Alastair. ♥
And now for the last announcement of the day:
LitJoy is working with me to create some gorgeous merchandise — you can find out more on their page, and we’ll be updating you as things become available. Right now I’m busy signing quite a few thousand tip-ins for what is going to be one of the most beautiful box sets of my books I’ve ever seen, their Mortal Instruments six-book set. The art has made me swoon!
This sounds incredible. I cannot wait for this box set.
For more information, check out Cassie’s post on Instagram:
This is all for today. Let me know what you think of all the announcements, the snippet and of course the art in the comments below!
Have a great day and I hope many of you can join the Instagram chat on July 10!
