As a lot of people know, Cassandra Clare is currently living and working in England for a few months while she writes and researches for her future Shadowhunter series.
This means that she is not planning a long US tour for the release of City of Heavenly Fire like there was for Clockwork Princess.
However, she just posted on her Tumblr a few details that I think some of our American followers would like to know:
Hi Cassie! I love your books and was wondering if you would be in Boston anytime soon for a signing or what not! 🙂 — shadowsparade
Well, close enough! I’ll be doing a signing on May 27, the day after the COHF midnight launch party at the 92nd Street Y. I’ll be signing in Wellesley at Wellesley Books, about 20 minutes from Boston, at 7pm, with Jodi Picoult. (Awesome writer, awesome lady.) We’ll be talking about writing and characters and endings and all sorts of things. And signing our books of course. You can find all the info here:
There are only three stops on my US tour for CoHF because the book comes out the week of Book Expo America, so I’ll be spending that whole week in New York as I have contractual convention-related activities. So I hope you can make it to one of the three! (New York, Boston, Philly.)
Sounds like it could be an exciting few days in east America!
She will also be attending a few events in the UK, the main one that has been announced so far is Hay Festival in Wales, but she also announced she will be doing events in England, Scotland and Ireland in early June and more details about those will be announced soon.
