Cassandra Clare & Holly Black To Visit Australia!

Stuck in Australia where authors never come? It seems the Fates have taken pity on us and led bestselling authors Cassandra Clare and Holly Black towards the land down under. The authors will be visiting both Brisbane and Sydney around the August-September time period, as they promote their Magisterium series.

Brisbane

Clare and Black will both be guests at the Brisbane Writers Festival on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of September 2015, in a fun informative writing panel. Afterwards, there will be book signing opportunities, where people are allowed to meet the authors and get their books signed! The tickets for this event are quickly selling out, so if you live in the area and are interested make sure to grab your tickets over on the BWF website – http://bwf.org.au

Sydney

Recently, the authors also confirmed that they will be visiting Sydney, specifically the Kinokuniya Bookstore on the 15th of August 2015. The bestselling international authors will be discussing the next book in their Magisterium series (The Copper Gauntlet). Unfortunately, tickets for this event are sold out, however Kinokuniya is hosting a special giveaway in which 2 lucky winners could win tickets to the event. To find out more about the event, head over to http://us4.campaign-archive1.com/?u=2f59ed5da3b76af8285b113f3&id=7746a82935

“Shadowhunters” TV Series | Art, Episodes, Social Media!

According to ABC Family, the show has been given a 13-episode count for its first season, each episode being an hour long, meaning that we’re guaranteed at least 13 hours of the show, even if it flops.

Cassandra Clare says:

“I’m excited to see ABC Family bring the world of the Shadowhunters to life. As a huge fan of long-form television drama, I can’t wait to see the story unfold and for the fans to have more time with the world and the characters,” added book author, Cassandra Clare.

Additionally, there are now various social media accounts for the Shadowhunters tv series, including a Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram:

Twitter: @ShadowhuntersTV

Facebook: Shadowhunters

Instagram: ShadowhuntersTV

What are your thoughts on this news? I’m happy that we’re guaranteed 13 hours, no matter the audience’s perception.

The Bane Chronicles! (Belated Post of Recognition)

tbc

I realised that I never made a post about the release of the physical collection of The Bane Chronicles written by our beloved Cassandra Clare. Unfortunately I don’t have the physical copy yet… I’m not particularly motivated considering I already have the eBooks. However, I want to know what you guys think! Personally, I think The Bane Chronicles was a really fun read. But I am slightly biased… I would read an a thousand page long book about the fabulous Magnus Bane 🙂

TMI – TV Show!

By now, all of you are aware that The Mortal Instruments is being adapted into a television series. Want to know how I feel about that? You can watch the video below to hear all about my mixed feelings on this.

 

This is what we know so far:

-they are restarting the series from City of Bones

-the series will go into production in 2015

-each episode will be an hour long

-Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne, executive producers from the film, will be producers on the show

 

We don’t have any hints for casting yet, but I’m very eager to hear all about the new members…though it will be sad to let the movie cast go 😦

Cassandra Clare Releases a Snippet From “The Last Hours”

Even though this Shadowhunter Chronicles series isn’t due to release for a couple of years, Cassie Clare, being the angel she is, has released a snippet from the upcoming series “The Last Hours.”

Matthew held out his hands. “Pax,” he said, wheedlingly. “Let it be peace between us. You can pour the rest of the port on my head.”

James’ mouth curved up into a smile. It was impossible to stay angry with Matthew. It was almost impossible to get angry at Matthew.

New Simon Lewis Short-Story Series!

cassie-clare

While on her City of Heavenly Fire UK tour, Cassie recently announced that with her fellow authors, she will be composing a few short stories about Simon Lewis from The Mortal Instruments! Asdfghjkl

She announced the 10 titles of Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy: 

“I’m holding off also on saying too much about Academy until we nail down dates — it will be ten stories, like the Bane Chronicles, and like the Bane Chronicles will end up as a print book eventually. The stories cover Simon’s arrival at the Academy through to his Ascension Ceremony, but a lot of them also time-hop: back to 1830, 1893, 1900, to the time of the Circle and some switch perspectives. I’ll say more when we make the actual announcement but for now have the list of titles to play with!”

Possible Titles Announced:

1) Welcome to the Shadowhunter Academy.

2) The Lost Herondale.

3) The Whitechapel Fiend.

4) Nothing But Shadows

5) The Evil We Love

6) Pale Kings and Princes

7) Bitter of Tongue

8) The Fiery Trial

9) Born to Endless Night

10) Angels Twice Descending

Blogger’s Note:

While I love that Cassie is doing yet another Shadowhunter-based series (even if they are only short-stories), I feel like maybe she is just over-doing the Shadowhunter theme just a bit, with the numerous Shadowhunter Chronicle book series she has released and that are to-be-released in the future. But don’t get me wrong, I’m still super-hyped for this upcoming short-stories series. Did you see the title “The Lost Herondale”? Obviously I’m excited.
