more graphic novel stuffs  
Had a lot of fun on tour with Holly Black for WHITE CAT and CITY OF GLASS - glad to be home though, even if that just means I now have to do proof pages for Clockwork Angel. Several of the people who came to my tour events had the Free Comic Book Day Mortal Instruments comic sampler with them and I had to restrain myself from taking it away from them because I don't have one yet myself. *sulk* The cover:

And a few more sketches from the interior, of Clary and Jace:

which is a detail from:

(bonus points if you recognize the scene)

There's also a great little snippet over at Nik's blog (http://www.nikvirella.com/) where she shows the evolution of a rough sketch of Jace to a finished one:

I'm enjoying following her blog — having zero visual talent myself it's always fun watching someone who does.

In further news, I did an interview over at Shelf Awareness, about the ways in which Clockwork Angel and the Infernal Devices are similar to The Mortal Instruments, and the ways in which they are not. Anyone with questions about Clockwork Angel, I'm always happy to answer them. [About City of Fallen Angels, I can't say much — I just got back from a meeting at Simon and Schuster and found out just how heavily embargoed this book is going to be. No ARCs, no teasers, not even a description of the plot in the catalogue. Although the answer to the most popular question I got on tour — "Is City of Fallen Angels from Simon's point of view only?" I can answer: the answer is no. The book's POV is split between Simon and Clary, with some Jace and Isabelle and even some Alec. More on that later.)]

Ooo, this is interesting. City of Fallen Angels will being having other points of views aside from Simon's! That sounds like tons of fun and is very smart. Straying completely away from Clary, who is the protagonist of the series for all three books, should stay a main character, as should all the others. But then again, that's just my opinion.

I'm even more excited! =P

It's been years since I actually commented here (was a D Trilogy fan), but as I've recently re-read your Mortal Instrument books, I just wanted to say that I am so relieved to hear there's going to be another book featuring the characters in that series. I love them :D

I recognise the scene. ;) It's from outside Java Joe's in chapter 2. Clary is in a panic because of her Mum's call. Looks good! I might have to get myself it.

This is the scene where Clary catches Jace spying on her and Simon at the coffe shop where Eric was whaling out his awful poem. Clary follows Jace out from the cafe and accuses him of spying and at the same time receives a few calls/messages from her mother. Clary dropping her phone and trying to use Jace's demon locator/remote thinking its his weird phone.
