Cassandra Clare Interviews Galore
Cassie was kind enough to answer our Q&A regarding Clockwork Angel specifically.
But she also talked to Novel Novice ahead of her big event in NYC earlier this month, and even gave us a wonderful shout-out!
Cassandra Clare Guest Blogs
Cassie wrote not one, but two guest posts for us.
First, she talked about Tessa’s Reading List from Clockwork Angel.
Then, she discussed the relationship between Clockwork Angel and A Tale of Two Cities
Be sure to download the wallpapers created by the Novel Novice staff, as well as the wallpapers provided by S&S.
We drew lots of lessons and informative plans from Clockwork Angel:
- Intro to Steampunk
- 19th Century Literature
- Poetry in Clockwork Angel
- The Legend of Bodicea
- Classroom Resources
- Essay & Project Ideas
We also scored some bonus interviews with Hebel Design, the creator of official TMI-inspired jewelry, and Vania of VLC productions, who created the Clockwork Angel book trailer!
And if you’re still wondering what the heck this STEAMPUNK genre is we keep talking about, check out this music video that explains it all:
Once again, another huge THANK YOU to Cassie for her immense involvement in this month’s features — Cassie, you truly are amazing! And a huge THANKS as well to Chrissy & the team at S&S for all of their help, as well!
