Clockwork Angel Release Party!!
Well Hello There!!!
Just for the record, I’ll be reading Clockwork Angel over the weekend and will have the review posted early next week! I can’t wait to hear what you all think of it. (Aside from the “it’s awesome” that we’ll all be professing, I’m sure.)
For now… I wanted to share a little bit about the party we had at my work (Books-A-Million) last night!
Not as many people as I had hoped for, but the store is still fairly new, and we’ve just recently started hosting events. I think it’s safe to say that those that DID come had a good time. I know I had a blast!
In addition to trivia and quote contests, both earning raffle tickets for correct answers and very cool prizes, we had “fun with runes”! We had a Rune Matching checklist, followed by a Create Your Own Rune activity. Most of the creations are pictured below:
Winners of the contests and raffles received books donated by YA authors like Maggie Stiefvater and Andrea Cremer. Cassandra and her publishing company, Simon and Schuster, were also VERY generous with their donations. We had posters, journals, temporary tattoos, autographed bookplates, autographed Mortal Instruments comics, and other things to give away. The two grand prize winners received an ARC copy of Clockwork Angel, and a beautiful, metallic *Limited Edition* Clockwork Angel pendant. (To get stunning, Mortal Instruments jewelry, approved by Cassandra, go HERE)
At the end of our shin-dig… I played a part of Cassandra’s August 4th uStream video (you can watch the whole thing HERE or look for info on her website, HERE) where she announces the NEXT TWO BOOKS!! That’s right, the Shadowhunters Series will have a total of 9 books!! (Pardon me while I do my dance of joy. *dances*) The original Mortal Instruments Trilogy will be Cycle One, then we’ll have the books in the Infernal Devices Trilogy and the Mortal Instruments Trilogy: Cycle Two taking turns for the next few years. In the video, Cassandra also talks about the status of the Mortal Instruments movie, gives details on the release dates of books, and answers viewers questions.
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU… to Cassandra, Simon & Schuster, BAM, and the other YA authors who donated items, for all you did to make this such a fun evening. And THANK YOU to those who came to have fun with us! Hope to see you for the next party!
