To celebrate today's cover reveal, Holly Black & Cassandra Clare called today Magisterium Day. To get ready for today's big cover reveal of The Copper Gauntlet, they spent time online today answering fan questions about The Iron Trail, and shared fan art. About today, Cassandra Clare had this to say:

Holly and I have a surprise for you today. It’s our first day of retreat and we’re celebrating — so today is Magisterium Day and we’re just going to answer Magisterium-related questions and post Magisterium art throughout the day. Until we work up to the reveal of our surprise! (I bet you can guess what it is :P) So…

I'm going to link to each of the posts that were made to Cassandra Clare's tumblr post through out the day, so that no questions are missed. There are a lot of them, which is why I'm not posting them all here like I normally would.

1) The first question, about Tamara and Jasper's friendship (contains spoilers) was asked & answered here

2) Holly Black & Cassandra Clare answer the question about the "big twist" in The Iron Trial. Read what they talk about here. *spoilers*
