This from Cassandra Clare’s Tumblr, about an hour ago:
City of Lost Souls cover reveal update: I have just been re-informed** that IN FACT the CoLS final cover will be revealed in USA Today online TOMORROW, January 4th, at approximately but not exactly noon. I will of course post the link as soon as I have it.
I know a lot of you have seen the placeholder cover:
and the final cover is even prettier … in my admittedly biased opinion. The landmark in the picture is the Pont Neuf in Paris.
Sorry for the conflicting information, but USA Today had to reshuffle its schedule. However, I do also now get to tell you that as well as posting the cover, they will also be posting a sizeable excerpt from the beginning of City of Lost Souls. Not just a teaser … a good-sized chunk! So there’s that!
** This is why it is usually no good asking me when such and such cover is going to be revealed — I genuinely don’t know and rarely find out until the last minute!
*** If they change it again I’m just going to go live in a bucket.
