OH MY GOODNESS! City of Fallen Angels is out today!!!!!

OK. I’ve calmed down. My dear friend Hiba, who has co-hosted the City of Fallen Angels Contest with me on her blog, Woven Strands, is guest posting here with a Cassandra Clare twitterview! How cool! Read on for the scoop on the latest book in The Mortal Instruments series.

The day has finally come; April 5th will be marked in history as the most anticipated day of 2011 –at least for us YA readers. The last two weeks have been crazy, and everyone is celebrating.

WovenStrands and Thoughts on YA books for the Not So Young Adult are hosting a CoFA Costume Contest: winner wins a customized signed copy of the book.

Mundie Moms is hosting two discussion forums, the first forum for people who finished reading CoFA – which will be full of spoilers – and the second forum is spoiler free – for everyone who hasn’t read the book yet.

As for Cassandra Clare, this past week she reached 25,000+ followers on twitter, and she – in celebration – published on her blog “Because it is Bitter”, the City of Ashes Seelie Court scene from Jace’s point of view.

Cassie has also been answering fan questions about her books on twitter. Since I am nowhere near being able to conduct a personal interview – hopefully in the future I will – I have decided to ask her on twitter, and to my surprise she answered *joyful me*. Reading what everyone else asked and her answers to them, I gathered them all into one article to share with everyone.

Regan Coomer has been so generous helping me conduct the CoFA Costume Contest and in return I wanted to write an article for her blog as a thank you.

I hope you enjoy the following WovenStrands Twitterview with Cassie Clare:

Finally, as an aspiring YA writer this question always crosses my mind, so I was delighted when Cassie Clare answered:

I hope everyone continues celebrating the release of City of Fallen Angel with us. For a closer, in depth, and insider TMI news go to TMIExaminer.

Check it out: flyers advertising the City of Fallen Angels Costume Contest are taking over!

Contest flyers reallllly get around. Over the last week or so, flyers advertising my and Woven StrandsCity of Fallen Angels Costume Contest have graced the walls of local coffee shops, book stores, and today, Starbucks and Panera Bread. What? I was hungry. 🙂

As of today, Cassandra Clare fans have two weeks to gather up a costume, find props and take photos for a chance to win a signed copy of the fourth installment of The Mortal Instruments series, City of Fallen Angels.

Now the book will be on shelves April 5, but just how many of you would otherwise have the chance to own a book signed by Dame Clare herself, I ask you? Not too many. No sir.

All you have to do is a post your photo in a comment on Woven Strands‘ blog, and so far we’ve only had THREE, count them, THREE, entries. TMI fans, do you know what that means? You won’t need to ask a professional gambler for this one: The odds of winning are VERY GOOD.

Click here for the contest details: deadline is APRIL 12.

Back to the flyers.

Stopping by Starbucks:

Today Starbucks celebrated its 40th anniversary and the COFA Costume Contest. Word.

Alex Pettyfer, currently a Borders resident, says enter this contest, darn it! He told me to tell you not to make him go beastly on you. Just saying. Fair warning:

You heard him. Alex Pettyfer says ENTER the COFA Costume Contest. Do it. It's not hard to be Simon: jeans and a band tee. And glasses. And a shadowhunter and wolf on each arm. 🙂 Easy peasy.

I may have hidden a few of these babies around the store. Just maybe.
