News About the “Four” Stories
Posted by Veronica Roth at 8:00 AM
All right, so it’s good news/bad news time.

Everyone always wants the bad news first, so here goes.

Bad News: the three remaining stories from Four’s perspective that I’ve been working on, which were supposed to come out later this year/early next year, have been delayed until July 2014. They’ll be bundled together and sold as a hardcover under the title Four: A Divergent Collection, with some fun extra content, and at that time they will also be released as separate e-stories (so, if you’ve already bought the first one, “The Transfer,” you don’t have to pay again for it in a collection if you don’t want to).

If you are asking, incredulously, “why, Veronica? Why must you do this to us?!” My answer is: the stories turned out much meatier and more substantial than I was originally anticipating when I started them. There’s just so much going on—Tobias’s reunion with his mother, his growing disillusionment with the faction system, and some of his early moments with Tris, to name a few. So I just really, really need more time to get them right. I know it sucks, but I am sure that this extra time will result in better work and better stories for everyone to read.

Okay. Good News:

-If you already pre-ordered the second story, “The Initiate,” your pre-order will not be canceled. It will just take a little longer for you to get it.
-The stories are long. As in, they’re about seventy pages each, so if you add them together you get about 280 pages of Tobias’s story. Which is as long as some novels. So there’s more to read!
-The price for the e-stories will not change, even though they’re longer than anticipated.
-The stories will be better in July than they would have been if they had come out this winter, because I’m going to work my butt off to make them that way!

Which is what I’m off to do right now, actually.

“Four: A Divergent Collection” Coming July 2014

It’s looks like we’re going to have to wait a little longer to get more Four.  The release of the remaining novellas told from Four’s perspective has been delayed until July; however there’s going to be even more content when they are finally released–all together in a hardcover book.  See below for the announcement from Divergent official.

Divergent Series
Exciting news, Initiates: FOUR: A DIVERGENT COLLECTION – a new, full-length, hardcover volume from Veronica Roth – is coming out in July 2014 to complete the Divergent series!

What does this mean, exactly? Well, it means we have to wait a little longer for more from Four, but it’s going to be worth the wait. The new hardcover, told from Four’s perspective, features a collection of much longer stories plus additional original content from Veronica. And if you already pre-ordered the e-novellas, don’t fret! They’ll still be coming your way in July 2014 too. If you have any questions for us, our ask box is always open.

Stay tuned for more information.
