Now that many of you are finished with Insurgent, I am often asked when book 3 will be coming out. We still don't have an official month and day, but I do have more information-- book 3 is scheduled to release next fall, Fall 2013.

I know that's over a year away, and that seems like forever. The reason it's so distant is pretty simple: I need more time to write and edit and polish it, so that when you get it, it's the best book 3 I could possibly make it. The last thing I want is to feel like the last book in the trilogy needed just a little more time, and I'm sure you feel the same way, even if internally you are saying "OMG WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO US, CRUEL AUTHOR?!"

Rest assured, internally I am saying "OMG why can't I stop time temporarily so that I can work while nothing changes around me?! And while I'm bemoaning the lack of impossible things in my life, why can't I teleport to Iceland and/or take some magical potion that keeps me from needing to sleep?!" Alas, I have neither time stopping devices nor sleep eliminating potions, and I just have to put my head down and work.

In the meantime, I will try to devise ways to make the wait seem shorter for you. Even if it involves more bathtubs full of mini marshmallows!


P.S. No, I still don't have a title to share with you guys. In my mind it is still Detergent. [image error]

Anna Oh! I am so excited

message 2: by [deleted user] (new)

Can't wait! I'm reading Insurgent right now and I love it :)

message 3: by hpboy13 (new)

hpboy13 That's fine! I'd rather get a spectacular book 3 in a year and a half than a rushed disaster like Mockingjay. Can't wait to read Detergent!

message 4: by Megan (new)

Megan I think book 3 should be titled Emergent ;D Just an idea.

message 5: by Kathyrn (new)

Kathyrn I,for one, appreciate the time you're taking. While it'll be a hard wait, it'll be worth it. The small inconsistencies in the last book drove me nuts! Not enough for me to think of the book as anything less than amazing, though! Taking the time to perfect you work is something we benefit from, so thank you!

Brooke (The Cover Contessa) Detergent! LOL!

message 7: by Amy (new)

Amy Either way, I'm gonna be first in linie to buy it! (And I'll get to re-read Divergent and Insurgent AGAIN!)

message 8: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca I can't wait! I'm going to read Insurgent after my exams and I'm super super excited :)

message 9: by Whitney (new)

message 10: by Jira (new)

Jira Bautista I kind of don't like the title Detergent. It makes me think of my laundry. How about Exigent or Assurgent?
Anyway, whatever title it might be can't wait for book 3!!

It's supposed to be a joke though. She doesn't know the real title.

message 12: by Hayley (new)

Lindsey Wilkinson Can't WAIT

message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

OMG! So excited! Such a huge fan of this series!!! Dying to know what happens! But yes, definitely take your time! Considering the sheer brilliance of the first two books, I think that you deserve to have a little more time to write the third one! Huge fan! Seriously, how did you come up with such a genius idea?! You're a truly talented genius writer!

message 25: by Shanita (new)

Shanita Akhtar I CAN'T WAIT <3
But god, waiting for another year?
*sigh* Oh well, it's always worth the wait! :)

message 26: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer That's what I thought too Megan - Emergent.

message 27: by Emily (new)

Emily Can't wait! I think it will be worth the wait. I know the amount of time you put into it will be well worth it! :)

message 28: by craig (new)

craig I'll find other books to occupy myself in the time waiting. I would rather you take your time and create a master piece! Also I'll enjoy re-reading divergent and insurgent for the finale :)

Great Idea love how it sticks with the "gent" theme and it fits the books :)

message 30: by Hera (new)

Hera HAHHAHA can't waitttttttt for Detergent!!!!!

message 31: by Mary (new)

Mary Ironically, just yesterday I was wondering if book 3 would be called "Detergent", as it's the only other word I could think of with "-rgent" at the end.

I was incredibly happy with Insurgent and I have confidence that you will wow me again with book 3. I'm sure the wait will be worth it, so do your best! :)

message 32: by Breanna (new)

Breanna Morgan That's the best reason for a book taking a long time to come out, it will be worth the wait if you are putting your very best into it. Detergent will steal our hearts like Divergent and Insurgent both did. Happy writing!

message 33: by Karly (new)

Karly Its such a long wait but it will be worth it. The first two books were amazing and I have no doubt the last will be too.

message 34: by Meredith (new)

Meredith Shaheed Pretty sure all Divergent fanpeople agree that Book 3 MUST MUST end in "-ent". LOL

Cannot, CANNOT wait for Book 3. Divergent is my single favorite book series ever.

message 35: by Pharaoh (new)

Pharaoh For a second I thought detergent was like the stuff you use to clean clothes...XD :D

message 36: by Amber (new)

Amber When she said Detergent, it was a joke. :D

message 37: by RoousC (new)

RoousC Omg I'm so excited for book 3. I know all that time will be something good for the book to be everything we wanted, but omg I wish I could read it right now D: but I know I can't, so I'll keep waiting :)

message 38: by Pharaoh (new)

Pharaoh Now I feel stupid. So she is not calling the 3rd book Detergent? wow. I really feel stupid. XD lol

message 39: by [deleted user] (new)

OMG !! Lol can't wait but seriously detergent? I should wash clothes ;)

message 40: by Suzanna (new)

Suzanna Hoang Over a year?! Initiates can't wait that long! But I'm sure the last book will be spectacular as were the first two. :)

message 41: by Lily (new)

Lily Can't Wait

message 42: by Lily (new)

Lily Can't Wait

message 43: by Kasey (new)

Kasey Absolutely can't wait. I can wait a year if it is going to be good as you say.

message 44: by Riana (new)

Riana I love the development of these books. The year+ will be tough, but worth it! I love how the characters are growing and learning about themselves.

message 45: by Imani (new)

Imani Detergent LOL. well thank u for letting us know that.. about the release date that is. It's reassuring to hear it from an author rather than know the date and hear nothing from them x_x

message 46: by NINORE (new)

NINORE OMG! FALL,2013 ? that can't be happening! :((((
Okay, decided. Won't read Insurgent, and will wait for the 3rd book (that will be a real torture)sooo, it will be better to read them sequentially.
P.S I don't like Detergent, hope it will be changed :))

message 47: by Dale (new)

Dale Pearl If I can ask Veronica. Why is it set in stone that it will only be a trilogy? It seems to me more and more writers and setting sets of 3 to their series in advance. Maybe that is the way of all media now I'm not sure but I was just curious if that is your focus or the publishers that is insisting on a trilogy.

message 48: by Haniel (new)

Haniel Oh my God, Detergent? Are you serious? LOL I can't wait to start Insurgent. :)

message 49: by Kate (new)

Kate Free Four part 2! :)

message 50: by Tamsen (new)

Tamsen Still haven't read Book 2 - but it is on my requested list at the library! Can't wait to read it - and I of course am looking forward to Tide - er, I mean, Detergent... ha ha. :)
