The Mortal Instruments series may have come to an epic conclusion earlier this year, but author Cassandra Clare is far from done telling Shadowhunter tales….
Entertainment Weekly updates on Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy and shows the beautiful placeholder cover with an arrow for Simon. Also we can reveal our fourth co-conspirator, Robin Wasserman :)

I think if my publishers heard it described as “a long wait” for the Bane Chronicles bindup they would rip out all their hair! Yes, TFSA will eventually be a printed, published book just like the Bane Chronicles (which is out November 11.)
its-mrs-t-herondale said: Hi Cassie! I love your books so much! I have a few questions though, Will Jace and Clary get married in TDA or already be married? Will Jem and Tessa appear in TDA? And, do you think you’ll make Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy into a book like you are with The Bane Chorincles? Anyway, I love you so much and hope someday you’ll come to Australia because it would be amazing to meet you!
Jem and Tessa, Jace and Clary, all appear in Shadowhunter Academy and The Dark Artifices. They are not main characters, but they are there enough for you to check in with them, find out what’s going on with them, etc. I’ll make a bigger post about this later, since up until “Will the cast from the movie return for the TV show” unexpectedly became my most asked question (answer: “I do not know!”) that was it. :)
Shadowhunter Academy will definitely be “a book.” I don’t have a publication date for it, but I would guess it would follow roughly the same timeline as the Bane Chronicles since it’s a very similar project. Expect to see Simon and of course Magnus and Alec, Jace and Clary, Izzy and Jem and Will and Tessa …
Robin Wasserman is a genius, and we tried to lure her to be part of the Bane Chronicles, but time did not permit! She is going to be a magnifique addition. In fact… with Maureen AND Robin… oh man, I am going to be totally shown up.
All of Cassie’s readers were super nice to me and Maureen, and embraced us and had fun with the stories. And we had tons of fun as well, though I was VERY NERVOUS. (I am now nervous again.) But… I hope they will be excited to have us again for the Adventures of Simon, I mean City of Shirtless Simon, I mean I forget what Maureen is calling it this week.
When writing the Bane Chronicles, I took R as my letter of the alphabet, and saw if I could make people like Ragnor and Raphael even more than they already did.
For Shadowhunter Academy, my letter is M! Now which characters’ names begin with M…
