October teaser for Clockwork Prince  
October Teaser for Clockwork Prince, for those who missed it when it was posted earlier on Tumblr (where I've moved most of my blogging) .Kindly illustrated for me by Charlotte Mattey, who said she could do it overnight, and did. :D


The voices were quite clearly those of the Lightwood brothers. Tessa recognized Gideon’s lower, rougher tones as he said, “There will be a moment of reckoning, Gabriel. You can depend upon it. What will matter is where we stand when it comes.”

Gabriel replied, his voice tense, “We will stand with Father, of course. Where else?”

“You don’t know everything about him, Gabriel. You don’t know all that he has done.”

There was a silence through which Tessa could almost hear Gabriel sulking. At last he said, “If you despise Father so much, why did you ever come back from Spain?”

Gideon replied, sounding exasperated, “I came back for you —”

Sophie and Tessa had been leaning against the door, ears pressed to the wood; at that moment, the door gave way, and swung open. Both straightened hastily, Tessa hoping that no evidence of their eavesdropping appeared on their faces.

Gabriel and Gideon were standing in a patch of light at the centre of the room, facing off against each other. Tessa noticed something she had not noticed before: Gabriel, despite being the younger brother, was lankily taller than Gideon by some inches. Gideon was more muscular, broader through the shoulders. He swept a hand through his sandy hair, nodding curtly to the girls as they appeared in the doorway. “Good day, Miss Collins, Miss Gray.”

Wondering what Benedict Lightwood could have done that was so bad to make his son hate him is going to drive me insane until this December. Can't wait! Also can't wait to see who's going to be on the cover of COLS.

Such a tease.
Thanks Cassie! I think this will hold me over for...umm...about another week. Haha. Anyhoo. Thanks for your amazingness!
Also, can you clarify something for me? Did you say that you're not going to update this blog anymore? Because I don't understand how to use tumblr and I only follow this blog. And I want to keep current on all the epicness that is Cassie Clare.
Love from Ohio

Unfortunately the amount of spam I'm getting from Lj is just unmanageable...

Re: Such a tease.
ok! Thank you anyway! I'll try to figure out tumblr. It can't be that hard, right? (...does anyone else hear crickets?...) haha. :)
Love from Ohio.

Re: Such a tease.
Does this mean I must learn the systems of tumblr to continue my updated stalking? :/
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on October 10th, 2011 02:32 pm (UTC)
Re: Such a tease.
There's nothing to learn. You just load it like a blog page.

Hehe (:
Makes me squeal like a three year old in a candy shop. :3

You have no idea, the love I hold for you, for creating these people. I've slowly, over the span of approximately 3 years, been getting my friends to read your books just so I could talk about the characters and whatnot with them actually knowing what I'm talking about.
I've now convinced my bestfriend to dress up as Alec so i can dress up as Isabelle so we can go demon hunting on Halloween... you cannot hope to understand my excitement.

i wondered how to find you on tumblr or whateverit's called!! by the way your books are ok!

So my friend and I were talking and we thought it was a bit unfair that most of the time, the sidekick never got the girl. I'm not strictly Team Will/ Team Jem but could you just think about that? I can't figure out how to post a comment on ur tumblr so here I am. I love your work so much!

Re: Sidekick
The thing is, neither Will or Jem is a sidekick.

Hi, this is the artist of Sfeer Theory. I've sent you an e-mail regarding something that was brought to our attention re: a recent contest and we'd like to talk with you about it.
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on November 2nd, 2011 02:34 pm (UTC)
Belated, but I understand the issue was completely cleared up. I'm glad to hear it.
(Anonymous) on October 13th, 2011 12:27 am (UTC)
This is a little off-topic (but somehow relevant, since we're talking ID here), but I just have a few questions:

Is it possible for Alec to become immortal the same way the Church the cat became immortal - through necromatic rituals performed by a demon (and does this have any relation to the teaser you posted earlier about Magnus's father)?
Was it Magnus that appeared in the Shadowhunter's Codex when Tessa was reading it in The Clockwork Angel? The warlock was described as having "cat-like eyes", a description that has been used for Magnus several times.
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on October 13th, 2011 01:57 am (UTC)
1) It's a very evil way to become immortal, but probably.

2) Yes, that was Magnus.

please can you update you're blog, this teaser has been on for a long, long, time.

Re: Hurry
The teasers are one a month. This one has been up for eight days.

Ms. Clare
Do you know if barnes and nobles or any other book selling place still carries clockwork angel with "magnus's vow"??
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on October 15th, 2011 04:36 pm (UTC)
Everyplace still carries it. You need the paperback edition.

I can't wait till December, I am so excited I might EXPLODE!!!
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on October 21st, 2011 01:22 pm (UTC)
They are in gear.
(Anonymous) on October 23rd, 2011 11:06 pm (UTC)
Alec and Will
ok this is a little bit off the subject of the teaser but is Alec descended from Will? they have the same hair and eyes, and Magnus pointed out that the Lightwoods had brown eyes and Alec didn't... so does that mean that Jace and Alec are actually related? Just a thought...
(Anonymous) on October 24th, 2011 08:30 pm (UTC)
I read on tumblr that a major character is going to die before the end of COLS. As long as it isn't Simon, I will love you forever.
I <3 Simon!!!!
P.S. I don't want to rush you, but are we ever going to see an October COLS teaser?
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on October 25th, 2011 09:09 am (UTC)
I posted the October teaser maybe a week ago?
