message 1: by Chloe (new)

Chloe would you be able to come to Australia any time soon?? I would love it if you could because Im not allowed to come to you :( Please though, and Im a big fan and cant wait for City of Fallen Angels, City of Lost Souls and City of Heavenly Fire :)


message 2: by Chloe (new)

Chloe BTW Holly, zombies freak me out to :)


message 3: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca Shaw Then you really shouldn't talk to Carrie Ryan, author of Forest of Hands and Teeth. A great read might I add, but I have a question. What in the world lead you to making Simon a vampire, I love it but why?


message 4: by Amy (new)

Amy Could you come to Albany, NY or somewhere relatively close that isn't NYC???


message 5: by Cassandra (new)

Cassandra Clare Well, you're supposed to ask questions at the link, but okay:

Chloe: I'm touring Australia in May. Dates and details on my website.

Rebecca: We're both good friends with Carrie so too late! Simon became a vampire because having a mundane like Simon hanging around the Shadowhunter world, taking part in the fighting and the danger, and not being changed or affected, fails to underscore how dangerous Downworld is. I had to show -why- the Shadowhunters keep their world and what they do secret from mundanes. There had to be consequences not just for Simon's involvement in this world, but also Clary's. There's also the fact that given that we find that Clary and Jace are both fairly powerful by the time City of Glass rolls around, Simon had to acquire some power of his own, or be reduced to being something of a redundant burden.

Amy: I'm afraid I don't get to choose where I tour - my publisher chooses.

Nurlely @ Cassandra: Will I have more of my beloved Jace in the series? Will Jace and Clary be together forever and ever? Well...perhaps not forever and ever because they could have some drama in between, but please do not separate them. I will be devastated if that happens.


message 8: by Andrea (new)

Andrea is there any updates on the movie ? Who will play Jace?

Is there any chance you'll visit the Philippines?


message 9: by Verlysia (new)

Azrael I want to know who is going to be JACE!!! I hope that he is hot and talented:)

Of course. He is the second main character!

Will Jace and Clary be together forever and ever? Well...perhaps not forever and ever because they could have some drama in between, but please do not separate them. I will be devastated if that happens.

I tend to like a bittersweet happy ending but I'll take beautiful despair if it seems fitting. :)

I am so excited to find out what will happen to Simon in COFA and also to found out how Jace and Clary are doing with their awesome relationship. The biggest thing is who the villian will be in this story. Now does Tessa show up in COFA or not? And does Jace every find out that Tessa knew Will? Thanks so much for writing my favorite series and I'm looking forward to meeting you on April 22 in South Hadley, MA. =)

Thank you so much Cassandra....:) I surely understands if there will be some rough road during Jace & Clary awesome love and adventure. I don't mind laughing, smiling, crying and dying during my reading. Just like reading the enthralling first Mortal Instruments series, I will be more than ready for more devastating yet lovable storyline. Surely a sweet ending will be fantastic.

I will love the idea of you coming to Medan, Indonesia, but since it is not a big city, and you might not do it, I think having your books will suffice for this time....:)


message 27: by Mitch (new)

Mitch Cave @Cassandra Clare:

What are your future plans after the whole Mortal Instruments series is complete? I'm a huge fan of your writing style and wish my whole bookcase was filled with your books.
Do you have any plans for another book series?

Maddi Toronto is waiting for you Cassandra! :D


message 32: by Emma (new)

Emma This isn't really a question, it's more of a hope.
I really hope one day you'll come to England. :)
Cassie Clare, you are one of my favourite author's, you make it in my top three hands down.
Your stories are probably some of the only ones I can re-read over and over and never get bored, because every time I revisit them I learn something new or remember something I may have forgotten.
I am particularly amazed at how you describe london in the past (I live in London so every time I step out my front door I imagine Tessa's world before me).
Between yourself and J.K Rowling you've both captured my imagination, you've made it possible for me to dare to dream.
I just want to thank you Cassie Clare, for giving me the greatest gift of all; your beautiful words.
So thank you so much.

ps. I cannot wait until Clockwork Prince. :)


message 33: by Khadija (new)

Khadija Panirwala I was wondering, is Clary supposed to relate to you?


message 34: by Sema (new)
