The Story of How I Found a Clockwork Prince Teaser at BEA

May 27, 2011

Title: Clockwork Prince
Author: Cassandra Clare
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books (Simon & Schuster)
Release Date: December 6, 2011 (SO FAR AWAY!!!!)

While many-a-blogger who attended BEA had a FANTASTIC experience meeting authors, having books signed, networking with publishing reps, and having a great time with each other, I was at BEA going to trade meetings and presentations…which was fun in its own way. But not nearly as fun as hanging out with super awesome book people with whom I do not work. :/

However, that does not mean that I did not pick up at least a little bit of swag.

Although I completely missed the unveiling of the cover for Clockwork Prince because I was being whisked away to meet sales reps and wholesale vendors [aren’t those words super fun?] that work with the publishing house I work for, I did make my way over to the Simon & Schuster booths to check out the cover and the weird guy dressed as Will they had hanging around taking pictures with people. I did not take a picture with him.

So I’m walking through their aisle of booths and chatting with some reps, when tout a coup I spy a thin, paperback with the Clockwork Prince cover art on the front. Having zero idea what it was, but knowing that I HAVE TO HAVE IT!!!!!!, I nonchalantly grab it. At least, I hope it looked nonchalant. If someone had looked into my eyes, they would have known that it was, in fact, a rabid, burning desire that shouted “OUT OF MY WAY BEFORE I END YOU.” But I digress.

So it wasn’t until I had actually left BEA that I realized exactly what I’d perhaps-not-so-nonchalantly grabbed: the prologue and first three chapters of Clockwork Prince.

Once I realized what it was I dashed through the throngs of people in Midtown to the nearest place to sit quietly (The Borders at MSG)  and read the damn thing. And lemme just say.


I really love Will. And I SUPER love Tessa. And I loved loved loved Clockwork Angel. And I LURVE what I’ve read of CP and where the storyline is headed. 😀

And that is all I’m going to say! If you’ve also read it, or don’t mind spoilers, feel free to DM me on Twitter or hit me up via gmail ( to discuss!
