We’ve just been given some good news and some bad news.
The good news is that there will be a launch party for Cassandra Clare’s latest book, The Mortal Instruments: City of Heavenly Fire!
Tuesday 27th May at 1pm – 4pm
Venue: The Bloomsbury Theatre, 15 Gordon Street, London, WC1H 0AH
Tickets £15, including an exclusive, early copy of City of Heavenly Fire.
Join us at this special Shadowhunter Super Fan event and be one of the first people in country to get your hands on a copy of City of Heavenly Fire, a day earlier than books will be available in the shops or for online retailers. Your copy will include a comic strip episode exclusive to Walker Books editions, and a full-colour fold out poster with new character art.
At our exclusive Shadowhunter Fan event there will be free rune body art painting, nail-art manicure bar, freebies, giveaways and a secret film screening to be announced!
Your ticket includes your early copy of City of Heavenly Fire, booking and more information can be found here: http://bit.ly/COHFlaunchUK
I also double checked that the mini-comic book Cassie mentioned which will be at the back of COHF will be included in these versions and this is walker books response:
UPDATE: Also at the Launch event will be free rune body art and nail art (subject to availability) and you get the copy of COHF in a goodie bag.
Cassie also announced that she will be touring the UK and Ireland in early June (most likely doing Q&A’s and book signings) for the release of City of Heavenly Fire. The exact dates and how to get tickets will be announced soon. This includes England, Scotland and Ireland. If you live in Wales, then Cassandra Clare will be there for Hay Festival in May, find out more HERE
The bad news is that due to legal reasons and the late May bank holiday, the release date for The Mortal Instruments: City of Heavenly Fire has now been moved the the 28th May 2014.
The date of publication of City of Heavenly Fire in the UK has moved to Wednesday 28th May.
For legal reasons, combined with the bank holiday on Monday 26th May we aren’t able to get books to shops any earlier – we’re working hard and most shops will have stock ready to sell on Wednesday 28th May, eBooks will be available from that day also.
If you want to get your hands on the book on Tuesday 27th May, you can by taking part in our exclusive event, details here: http://bit.ly/COHFlaunchUK
FYI, Cassie will not be at the Launch Party! She will be in New York for the midnight release of COHF.
So it’s good that you can still get the book the day it was originally meant to be released in the UK if you attend the event, but for those not attending then will have to wait until the next day.
This means that EVERYONE will have to be careful while on the internet. America get it at midnight (so 5am GMT) on the 27th so means there will most likely be spoilers going around that day. So be careful if you don’t want to read spoiler!!
