INSURGENT CASTING NEWS: Keiynan Lonsdale cast as Uriah in INSURGENT movie!

20140610-144528-53128215.jpg

This is what all of us have been waiting for. The casting of one of the most beloved characters in the Divergent series, Uriah. We’ll wait no longer. Keiynan Lonsdale has been casted as Uriah in Insurgent. Since Uriah was not in Divergent so this is huge for us.

Filming for Insurgent started on May 27. Insurgent hits theaters on March 20.

Keiynan is absolutely perfect for Uriah. He has that Dauntless look.

What do you guys think? Perfect right?!

Veronica Roth breaks down FOUR: A DIVERGENT COLLECTION!

20140506-164639.jpg

Veronica Roth has shared more information on Four: A Divergent Collection on her Tumblr.

Four: A Divergent Collection Info!
Now that Four: A Divergent Collection is FINISHED FINISHED FINISHED, I am here to give you the rundown of what’s actually included in the pbook, because it’s just a little over 60 days until it comes out!

First, there are the four stories you expect: The Transfer, The Initiate, The Son, and The Traitor. Here is the official summary:

Two years before Beatrice Prior made her choice, the sixteen-year-old son of Abnegation’s faction leader did the same. Tobias’s transfer to Dauntless is a chance to begin again. Here, he will not be called the name his parents gave him. Here, he will not let fear turn him into a cowering child.

Newly christened “Four,” he discovers during initiation that he will succeed in Dauntless. Initiation is only the beginning, though; Four must claim his place in the Dauntless hierarchy. His decisions will affect future initiates as well as uncover secrets that could threaten his own future—and the future of the entire faction system.
Two years later, Four is poised to take action, but the course is still unclear. The first new initiate who jumps into the net might change all that. With her, the way to righting their world might become clear. With her, it might become possible to be Tobias once again.

Then, there are a few things you might not expect. Three “deleted” scenes from THE TRAITOR—scenes that I wrote while drafting the stories but had to cut for length (or because they no longer worked for the timeline). The titles are memorable lines that all happen to end with the same word. They are also all “first moments”. You know, like…

“First jumper—Tris!” – The first time he ever lays eyes on her.

“Careful, Tris.” – And the first time Tris challenges him. (But certainly not the last!)

“You look good, Tris.” – And the first time he lets his guard down.
So. There you have it—everything that will be in the short story collection, released in hardcover on July 8th, 2014, in the US! I’m excited for you guys to read!
Other info:

*The stories will also be available as separate short e-books in July.

**I’m not sure when/if the book will be released in which countries. I’ll put that information on my “foreign editions” page as it becomes available.

You can pick up Four: A Divergent Collection on July 8th. Pre-order it here.

Veronica Roth to speak and moderate at BookCon!

Veronica Roth will be attending BookCon this year. She just revealed this on her Tumblr page.

Read the announcement:

NYC, May 31st, BookCon

Hey everyone!

I’m going to be at BookCon in New York City this year, as both a speaker and a moderator. Here are the details:
11:00AM— I’ll be appearing in conversation with Alex London, author of cyberpunk-futuristic-awesomeness PROXY (which I enthusiastically recommended earlier this year) and GUARDIAN (the sequel, which I also enthusiastically recommend, though it’s not out yet). We are going to talk books and sci-fi and I may fangirl a little. You have been warned.

4:15PM— I will also be moderating a panel about YA science fiction/fantasy featuring Marie Lu (LEGEND, PRODIGY, CHAMPION), Alaya Dawn Johnson (THE SUMMER PRINCE), and Danielle Paige (DOROTHY MUST DIE). We put the panel together last week, and BookCon approved it, which means I get to be present (and, you know, asking questions) during what I’m sure will be a fascinating conversation. The timing is excellent, because I loved the Legend books, just finished The Summer Prince, and will soon finish Dorothy Must Die and they are all really awesome and I’m really! Really! Excited! that those attending the con will get to hear from the minds that devised them.

More info on BookCon: here.
If you are attending the conference, I hope to see you there! If you aren’t attending, I hope to see you at some other point this year!
