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!

Downside to all this
Now, I know this being made into a movie is great and a PHENOMENAL thing, but ( and not the be the downer on things) I see a small problem. Once it's a movie, the actors and maybe even the director will get ALL the credit. The people who have never heard of this book (which can't be to many, considering the number of people I know and blabber to all the time) won't even know you are the author. The master mind behind all this wonderful plot line and imagination. Seriously, I just see the down side. It's small, plus, I'm not sure you see a problem with it. Just pointing it out.
