In My Mailbox #100- The Vlog Dare

Wow! This is our 100th In My Mailbox!! I find it fitting that today I've been DARED by Reading Teen to do an IMM vlog. Like them, I don't back down from a dare, so please ignore the crapy lighting and the fact I've now totally embarrassed myself with this horrible video. Before you laugh at my video, go check out Reading Teen's cute IMM done in their jammies! I think Jace would approve.

The next vlog will be much better. LOL Thank you to Andye and Amy for the dare! I'm already plotting my next dare for you guys :D

Infernal Devices Clockwork Prince 31 Day Celebration: Day 28, Interview Teasers

Only 4 more days!!! YAY!!! It's day 28 of our 31 Days of CP, and today I'm sharing a teaser from our upcoming interview series with the cast of the Infernal Devices. Originally I was going to post our interview with Cassie, Magnus, Jem, Will, Tessa, Jessamine, Sophie, Charlotte and Henry through out the course of our 31 day celebration, but there's some teasers mixed in with their answers, so I'm going to be posting those AFTER CP's release.

Today's post are a couple of the *spoiler free* questions and answers with Cassie and a couple of the characters. I'll post the complete Clockwork Prince interview series next week. Will even tells us what Holy water tastes like....


How was writing CP different than writing CA?

The first book in a series is always about getting to know the characters, introducing them, laying your groundwork, and it's fun that way, but the second book allows you delve more deeply into their characters and backstories. The first book establishes a conflict, and the second carries it forward, and lets you start paying off some of what you set up.


* What is one quality you admire in Jem, Will and Magnus?

I admire Jem's kindness, Will's determination, and Magnus' brilliance.


* What's the most fabulous party you've ever attended?

One of my own, of course.
