During San Diego Comic Con 2017, I sat down with the cast and crew of the Freeform hit television series Shadowhunters to ask them about the changing relationships, their amazing fans, and what it’s like to be on a GLAAD award-winning show with three prominent queer characters.

At the roundtables were Katherine McNamara (Clary), Dominic Sherwood (Jace), Alberto Rosende (Simon), Emeraude Toubia (Isabelle), Matthew Daddario (Alec), Harry Shum Jr. (Magnus), Isaiah Mustafa (Luke), and Producers Todd Slavkin, Darren Swimmer, and Matt Hastings.

We’ve combined text and video to give you a peek into the hilarious and exciting interview session at SDCC. Plus, don’t forget to check out our interview with author Cassandra Clare, the mind behind the Shadowhunters universe… and see the end of the post for a giveaway!

So BAM, let’s jump right in!

Today I’m absolutely thrilled to welcome New York Times Bestselling author Cassandra Clare to the blog, in the first of our two-part Shadowhunters interview series! Cassandra is the author of the Shadowhunter Chronicles universe, which encompasses more than two dozen books and short-story collections, four graphic novels, one film, a television series, and so much more!

Oh, and her books all have super awesome, totally kick-ass queer characters in them, fighting demons and saving the world!

Cassandra joins us this afternoon to talk about the her desire to include queer rep in her books– from Magnus and Alec, to Raphael’s on-page asexuality, and more!– as well as the work she’s put in to making sure these queer characters get their time to shine in the hit TV series!

And don’t miss Part Two of our interview… where we talk to the cast and crew of the Freeform Shadowhunters television series! Plus, check the end of the post for your chance to win a little somethin’.

El Goes to Comic Con! (and gives away some of the books she got.)

A few weeks ago, I attended San Diego Comic Con for… oh, the eleventh year? Something like that. In some ways, I feel like a stereotypical old lady, shakin’ my cane and reminiscing about “back in the old days”. SDCC has evolved pretty drastically since I started attending, for better or worse, but that means every year is a new adventure! And this year I was joined for two days by JL’s very own DMac, who went on many Book Related AdventuresTM with me!

Here’s a broad overview of What I Did At Comic Con. More is to come, including some pretty damn cool surprises.

(And oh, by the way, I’m giving away some SDCC swag at the end. Y’know, if you’re into that sort of thing. AKA FREE BOOKS.)
