Do you ever feel so detached from the world because you’re constantly living in the fictional/fantasy worlds in your head given that reality is just too boring, too limiting, and too uneventful????

"fuck you my child is fine"
Your child wants to run with the fae, is alarmingly attracted to charismatic villains, wishes they had wings, and wants nothing more than to find a fantasy land and go on adventures with the friends they make there.

We Jace you a Clary Christmas
otome-azarada said: Just one more question (sorry to bother you, Cassie!): do you have any plans of writing a Clace novella or something like that? I miss them so much! Love you!
Between Sword Catcher and Chain of Thorns I don’t have any spare time for novellas etc. alas. BUT! This was a good time for this question, because . . .

(Art by Cassandra Jean OF COURSE)
For a holiday present for my newsletter subscribers, I went through all my archives and pulled up everything I’ve written over the years — as extras for special editions of books, etc — that focuses on Clary and Jace. From “Awake”, which tells the story of the first time Jace saw Clary, to Jace’s perspective on their first kiss, to the marriage proposal story A Long Conversation (and the second marriage proposal story, A Love That Never Tires) it’s in there — more than sixty pages of Clace extravaganza spanning City of Bones to now.
It will be offered to my newsletter subscribers early next week as a holiday present. They’ll be able to download an illustrated PDF of all the stories for free. The easiest way to sign up for the newsletter is to pop over here:
https://bit.ly/cassieclarenews
You’ll get an explanatory welcome message, etc. As I’ve been on deadline I’ve been moving a lot of my social presence to the newsletter, which is why I encourage people to sign up so they get news and snippets — but if you only want to sign up for the Clace freebie and go, that’s okay too! Happy holidays, Shadowhunters!

Magnus and Alec 💛 City of Glass
•••
"But-" Maia, still looking over at Alec and Magnus, broke off and raised her eyebrows. Simon turned to see what she was looking at- and stared.
-
Alec had his arms around Magnus and was kissing him, full on the mouth. Magnus, who appeared to be in a state of shock, stood frozen. Several groups of people - Shadowhunters and Downworlders alike - were staring and whispering.
-
Glancing to the side, Simon saw the Lightwoods, their eyes wide, gaping at the display. Maryse had her hand over her mouth.
-
Maia looked perplexed. "Wait a second," she said. "Do we al have to do that, too?"
•••
I'm really, really, REALLY PROUD of this art 🥰 I hope you like it too my loves!

Dropping this new illustration inspired by The Mortal Instruments by  @cassandraclare, featuring the crew from the New York Institute! Featured on a HUGE puzzle, part of the 2021 Literary Locations add-ons from LitJoy Crate! This was such an action-heavy illustration! So much pose! So much SFX! But I had to shove everyone out to the edges to make room for the centerpiece figure of the NY Institute building! We wanted to feature the true building and a super-imposed image of its glamour as a ruined cathedral. If it's not apparent, I'm a huge fan of using dutch angles and wide angle perspectives in my illustrations - and that absolutely had to happen here to fit in the sheer size of the building and its surroundings. I've always found spherical perspective drawing so much more dynamic and fun to build! 😤✨🧡

HELP BRAZILIAN READERS
so, in brazil, we have this gigant publisher called ‘galera record’ and and they publish most of the big titles and authors (here’s a list of some authors and books, but there are many more)
Tumblr media
the problem begins with the absurd price they put on the books. it’s so expansive, most people can’t afford it. when they released koa (one year after the book was launched) it was cheaper to buy the original, hardcover, signed copy then the portuguese one. but then you say “okay, it’s expansive, but you’re paying for a high quality product, so it’s worth it” right? no.
here are some of the problems we have with this publisher:
1. the translations
i’m going to use a recent exemple, but you can find stuff like this in basically all their books.
they released the brazilian version of house of earth and blood, by sarah j maas this semester, and it was one of the most expected books of the year. they whitewashed ALL the non white characters. Hunt, Fury, Juniper, Isaiah... you name it, they whitewashed. it was absurd. all the fans ware so angry, we made it to the trends and they said that in the next edition they were going to fix it. but if you had already bought it, it’s your problem. you keep the racist copy or pay for the new one.
like i said, you can find things like this in most of their books. here we have Raphael from tmi (Cassie Clare) saying “i’m not gay. i’m not straight. i’m not interested.”, and they turned to “i’m not gay. I’m straight. i’m not interested.”
they literally changed his sexuality
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
and this is an old book, they never fixed. besides changing characters races, skin color and sexuality (among other absurd things), their books are poorly translated. wrong words, characters names spelled wrong, changes in the original texts that are not necessary or make sense
Tumblr media
2. bad quality of the books
besides the poor translation, the books have a low quality. like, really low.
the paper they use it’s terrible and gets yellow with months (in the pictures, 1° one is books that i have for six years from other publishers and 2° have 3/4 years)
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
we’ve been complaining about this for YEARS, they aways say they will change the papers, but never do.
besides this we have other problems: books with missing chapters, books with the pages glued together, with whole pages missing, the bumps of the books not aligned, literally anything you can think about. and yet they put an absurd price no one can afford
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
3. lack of professionalism
this one is the most recent one. yesterday, the main editor of the publisher was “talking” against pirate books. i understand. it’s her job. but then she compared piracy with RAPE, RACISM AND MURDER and then made this joke, referring to a case that is running here in brazil, where a girl’s rapist was sentenced with “guilt rape”, witch is basically saying he didn’t meant to rape her. that’s not even legal and it’s so so so disgusting and wrong. we are still fighting to have justice brought to this case and this girl, and the main editor of one of the biggest publisher in the country had the nerve and lack of character to make a joke saying that reading in illegal epubs is “guilt piracy.”, when most people who read in illegal forms don’t have the money to buy books. we don’t have many libraries. it’s either read in epubs or don’t read at all. so besides having no compassion with all these peoples, she used an serious and disgusting issue as a joke.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
that’s not the first time she’s involved in cases like this, and yet she was never fired or reprimanded. they just ignore it, because she’s the heir of the publisher, so i guess it’s okay she does this kind of thing
we are basically hostage of this publisher because it buys all the big titles and it’s either give them money or don’t read the books we love so much.
most of us cant read in english or cant afford to buy international copies, so if we want our favorites, we need to buy it from them. the reason for this thread is to ask you to help us bring attention to this. we are tired of the disrespect this is and we want authors to know who their selling their work to, and to know what is happening here. so please, tag the authors, publishers, managers ANYONE you can think of that will read this and be able to do something to help. please. we are so tired of having to deal with this, we just don’t know what to do.
thanks for reading, i’m so sorry for any mistakes, and please share this and tag people

i think it should be mandatory for authors to release novellas about all the endgame ships 5 years after the series ended because this expecting me to just move on with my life thing isn’t working

i love it when books substitute our version of "oh god" for something else. like in six of crows they say "saints" and in throne of glass they say "by the wyrd" and in shadowhunters they say "by the angel" and in three dark crowns they say "goddess". my favourite one so far: wayfarers series where they say "oh stars".
