Cassandra Clare's Next Project!! More Shadowhunters!

For all you Cassandra Clare fans!! There is no end to her Shadowhunter series....yet. Hopefully more to come after that. It has been announced that author Cassandra Clare has signed another three-book deal with Margaret K. McElderry Books (an imprint of Simon and Schuster Children’s publishing) to write 'The Dark Artifices'

Series: A trilogy
Setting: Los Angeles, 2012
Characters: Emma Carstairs, Julian Blackthorn, Mark, Helen, Carmen, Olivia, Tiberius, Arthur + more
Release Date (s): 2015 (Book One)

The Washington Post reported Today, that Cassandra Clare had officially signed on for a three-book deal with Simon & Schuster to pen the spinoff Shadowhunter series The Dark Artifices.
“The series follows Emma Carstairs, the fiercest warrior and most skilled young Shadowhunter since Jace Wayland, and Emma’s sworn partner in arms, Julian Blackthorn,” the statement reads. “Despite Emma’s complicated feelings for Julian, the two must band together to investigate a demonic plot that stretches from the warlock-run nightclubs of the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica.”
Clare said in a statement that she was sure readers would love both her new and her established characters.
“I know readers will come to love Emma, Mark, Cristina and Julian just as they have loved Jace, Clary, Will, Tessa and Jem,” she said. “Readers have often asked what will happen in the Shadowhunter world after the events of the ‘Mortal Instruments’ and this series will give them a chance to find out.”
And this is what Cassandra has said about the future of her writings!!

Also, if you are curious about the characters from TDA, look out for characters either in or mentioned in CoLS and CoHF who might be 11, 12, 13 years old. (As five years later, they will be sixteen, seventeen, and eighteen.)
Now, this is all speculation. I do enjoy writing in the world of the Shadowhunters and I think there are infinite stories to tell in it. I also think that there are stories I would like to tell that are not necessarily about Shadowhunters. It is just a matter of what order I write what in.
Is everyone excited?? Anxious?? Thoughts??
