Check out Cassandra's site about a special letter that Jace wrote to Clary HERE

From Cassandra's site:

What this means basically is that Barnes and Noble in the US is going to be carrying a special edition of COFA with some special content inside it.

The B&N Exclusive Edition

In City of Glass, Book 3 of The Mortal Instruments series, Jace leaves a letter in Clary's room before he leaves for a life-threatening mission. The content of this letter has been the subject of much speculation among Mortal Instruments fans, but it has never been revealed until now. In the B&N exclusive version of CITY OF FALLEN ANGELS, Jace's letter to Clary will be enclosed in the book as a separate piece, designed to look as if it was handwritten on stationery."


I had initially written the letter and given it to my publisher as something that could be a tour extra — something I could have printed up to hand out to people who come to my signings. But they loved the letter so much they wanted to make it available more widely and Barnes jumped on the idea of carrying it. Everyone agreed they wanted it to look really amazing, so it's handwritten — no handwriting fonts — and sealed with the Morgenstern wax seal.

Just to answer questions: Yes, the signed edition has the letter too. No, that doesn't mean no tour giveaway — I now have something else to give away on tour, which is a sort of short story told via postcards between the characters during the gap between City of Glass and City of Fallen Angels. Yes, this edition is only available at Barnes and Noble stores and from their online store. Yes, that means it is not available from other stores, or in countries where there are not Barnes and Noble, as of now. No, this is not a limited edition. All City of Fallen Angels books sold by B&N will have it. Yes, we have been working to do other cool things with other stores and outlets too. Yes, Barnes does ship overseas but I don't know their shipping policies exactly, but I'm sure it says on the site. I should have tour dates soon so I'll post those soon as well!

ETA: CHAPTERS/INDIGO WILL ALSO BE CARRYING THE SPECIAL EDITION WITH LETTER IN CANADA.
