movie news — casting Clary  
Just dropping an entry to announce that, as reported by Deadline, Lily Collins, who starred in The Blind Side and the upcoming Priest**, has been cast to play Clary in the movie adaptation of City of Bones. The producers and director have worked with her before and say great things, and I have to admit right now I haven't seen The Blind Side but am obviously going to go out and watch it NOW.

She is completely adorable and looks right for Clary to me:

[and with curly hair!]

And now, of course, as this article notes, presumably the speculation about who plays Jace will begin in earnest . . .

** And apparently is also famous for dating Taylor Lautner — did I know this? No, but my readers apparently know everything. :)

ETA: There are now 590 comments on the post and I think 589 mention Alex Pettyfer. We get it. Really, we do! It would be hard to miss. Just a reminder that I don't have any influence over casting!

Questions that I'm hoping doesn't annoy you.
Hey! I'm Julia, and I'm a BIG fan of yours. No offense to Twilight fans, but when I read your series, I thought yours was WAY BETTTER!
Anyways, on with the Q's!
1. Is Maia pronounced May-ah or Mya? Because I'm really not sure, but its confusing me alot.
2. Is this the for sure Clary? I'm sorry if you did say it was or wasn't, but I'm kind of confused. I'm not good with this movie stuff.
3. Is Aline turning... uhm, ... you know, les? 'Cuz some people say she is, but I'm not sure if its a rumour. I think it hinted on that in COG.
4. And lastly, is it okay to write Fanfiction about your series? I feel safer if I ask you first, considering some authors may not like if I did.

THANKS! You're amazing! You, L.J. Smith, and Ally Carter are my FAVOURITE authors! YOU ROCK!

Julia, a big fan. (L) :)

Re: Questions that I'm hoping doesn't annoy you.
1) My -ah.
2) She is as surely Clary as anything is sure in the movie biz.
3) People don't 'turn gay", they are born gay or straight or whatever. Aline flat-out says what's going on with her in CoG : she kissed Jace because she wasn't sure "any guy was her type" — so basically she's not sure she's attracted to men at all. That's where she's at.
4) It's fine, there's a big fanfic section over at ff.net, I believe.
