Movie Update: Clip Tomorrow + Insurgent News

There have been a few movie updates (mostly exciting ones!) so I thought I would give you the whole scoop at once, in case you haven’t seen anything yet. So! Three things!

First of all, a clip of the Divergent movie will be premiering tomorrow night on Entertainment Tonight and online at Yahoo Movies! (Check for your local listings here.) Check out a little preview on the Divergent Instagram page here, too: http://instagram.com/Divergent

I’ve seen the clip, and…WELL. You’ll see. It is so good.

Second, Summit Entertainment has set a release date for Insurgent: March 20th, 2015!

And, while we’re on the topic of that date, let’s get to our third item. Because the hope is that the second movie will come out March 2015, that means that everyone is getting to work pretty much right away. And sadly, since Neil Burger is still working like crazy on Divergent, he won’t be able to direct Insurgent (...unless we clone him using Calvin's Duplicator). He will, however, be sticking around as an executive producer, which is awesome, because Neil is awesome and has taken such good care of this story so far, from what I've seen.

And I can’t wait to see Divergent all put together! Ahh! (Can someone also try to borrow Calvin’s time machine?)

News About the "Four" Stories

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.
