Divergent author, Veronica Roth, to publish two new books

Divergent author, Veronica Roth, to publish two new books

Buckle up Divergent fans, HarperCollins has just announced that it will be publishing two new young adult books by Veronica Roth, the no. 1 New York Times best-selling author, best known for the Divergent trilogy and Carve the Mark duology.

Due for release in late 2019 is a short story collection by Roth titled The End and Other Beginnings: Stories from the Future, which takes place in futuristic societies and post-apocalyptic worlds shaped by advanced technology. Among these stories is “Inertia,” which has already been optioned for film by Fox 2000.

About the collection Roth said, “What really unites [the stories] is that the characters are trying to process some kind of ending. That’s something I remember about my teenage years: learning how to lose things, whether it was friends or (in my case) boyfriends or loved ones, whether that loss was to death or growing apart or just growing, period. So whatever worlds these stories are in, they are always about that profoundly human feeling—about the first few times we practice resilience.”

In addition to The End, HarperCollins has also secured the rights for an untitled YA novel by Roth which is slated for release in 2021.

And despite her substantial YA fan base, Roth is also venturing into adult fiction with an unnamed adult science fiction novel, due for publication mid 2020.
