CoFA cover  
A few sharp-eyed folk have noticed that there seems to be a cover for City of Fallen Angels up over at Amazon.

It is A cover, but it's not THE cover. It's a placeholder cover — like it says, the actual reveal of the real cover will be in December of this year. I can't say much about who's on it as it isn't finalized — I can say that there's some chance it may be two people, and that from what I've seen of the sketches and comps so far, it's going to look really cool. I'll be talking about it a bit more at the August 4th events.

Who indeed?

Hello Cassandra! This is JP (@jpmsull) . . . I don't have a LiveJournal, but I wanted to ask if you knew what font your cover designer uses for the CITY OF __________ part. It's the same font she uses for the placeholder, as well . . . ?
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on July 21st, 2010 02:55 pm (UTC)
Hi JP. They created their own font for the covers of the City books.

Very much looking forward to the reveal of who shall be gracing the cover of this amazing book. Glad that we have a date to go by now. :)

Cannot contain the excitement.

I may not be able to uncross my eyes after seeing how long the wait will be.

I must admit I'm slightly baffled by all the extreme excitement and suspense over cover art. I'm sure it will be lovely when it comes out, and the placeholder cover is nicely-designed. (I don't get fantasy casting either. They have trained professionals for these things, and the actual future actors for the adolescent roles are probably all just kids right now.)
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on July 21st, 2010 08:14 pm (UTC)
See, I totally get excitement over cover art because I am fascinated by book cover art and often wind up buying several copies of the same book just because it has different art on the cover. But I also don't get fantasy casting; I don't ever, ever think about actors to play my characters, don't understand the fascination at all, *but* am happy that some readers like to do it b/c they get a kick out of it and it's harmless fun.

Do you know if that will be the actual background of the cover?
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on July 21st, 2010 08:14 pm (UTC)
I don't, no.

I just fangirled really hard. The suspense is gonna kill me for the next couple of months!
seemyevil on July 21st, 2010 08:54 pm (UTC)
Ooooooh, the suspense! It's killing me! I really look forward to the release of this immense book. And I'm GIDDY for The Clockwork Angel.

Can't. Wait.
(Anonymous) on July 22nd, 2010 03:28 am (UTC)
Oh wow.
I almost just had a heart attack. That's how excited I am. Giddy, actually. I was jumping about in my chair for good five minutes, just smiling stupidly at this picture.

And it's not even the real cover yet.

The Person On The Cover
I think Simon should be on the cover. I mean, isn't the book about him?
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on July 22nd, 2010 02:30 pm (UTC)
Re: The Person On The Cover
"CoFA shifts through multiple character points of view, including Simon’s, Clary’s, Jace’s, Isabelle’s, and even Magnus’. You will find out what it is like for Jace and Clary to be having a relationship now, and find it out from their viewpoints. However, there is also a strong plotline for Simon in this book, in which he is more than an adjunct to the larger drama around Clary and Jace."

I don't know if they consider that enough to win him the cover.
brooke_butlerbrooke_butler on July 22nd, 2010 03:45 pm (UTC)
Even if it'snot totally centred on Simon, Simon should get the cover because he is so awwwwesome. Eep, though, I'm so excited. Not for the cover so much because, like, I don't really get excited over covers (though I won't judge you if you do) but it's just another step closer to getting my hands on the book!

Hey Cassie! I don't know if you hate that...if you do...sorry. Lol. Uh...I just wanted you to know that I freaking love you. In the totally non-stalkerish way. I think your mind would be a wonderous place to live in, and umm, I can't WAIT for CoFA. I am so. freaking. excited. Especially since I haven't been able to find anything good to read. You and Rachel Caine are my favorite authors :) --Lacie

On Amazon, it says that The City of Fallen Angels is coming out April 5th, 2011. Is that true?
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on July 26th, 2010 04:28 pm (UTC)
The release date isn't finalized.

Cassandra, that's not nice to tease us with that question! It's bad enough we have to wait practically
F O R E V E R for the book, don't cha think? I'll just have to keep rereading the first three so I don't feel Jace deprived.
Can't wait for Clockwork Angel! :)
p.s; Is there another site to buy TMI jewelry besides Etsy.com?

Cassie Clarecassandraclare on July 26th, 2010 04:28 pm (UTC)
Eight months doesn't seem like forever to me but perhaps that is because I am oooooold.

No, you can only buy TMI jewelry on etsy.

first of all, i know you hear this all the time but i am a huge fan. Like im in love with simon and cried when i read about him in the second book, "city of ashes". (not to spoil anything or anyone) What happened to simon was so heartbreaking. I could feel what clary felt the whole time. in the first book i liked jace but he kinda seems like a jerk now. SIMON IS MY FAVORITE! you should bring him up in your books more! I would absolutly love you! So anyways, I can't wait till the fourth book. I havent read the third book yet but im planning to start and finish it on the 3 hour flight to Houston.
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on July 27th, 2010 05:33 pm (UTC)
"SIMON IS MY FAVORITE! you should bring him up in your books more!"

I always say Simon fans may be fewer than Jace fans, but they are the most passionate! Anyway, since CoFA has plenty of Simon, you it should be up your alley.

Very dramatic cover...AND I LOVE IT. Seeing the acutal cover will be like an early Christmas present. I'm really hoping that COFA is released on April 2nd, my birthday, just to make it special. And I must confess...I'm asking Santa for JACE LIGHTWOOD this Christmas...I am so glad that Jace and Clary finally get a book to be together. When I found out that you were writing COFA, I started rolling on the floor with happiness.
