Veronica Roth calls ‘Shenangians’ on tumblr to debunk rumors about Allegiant

Veronica

I love that Veronica Roth has a tumblr and communicates through it so openly.

I love the idea of “SHENANIGANS” and this is a must read from her tumblr:

So, every so often an Allegiant “spoiler” will pop up on Tumblr or on Twitter and I get a lot of frantic questions about it. It’s kind of tough to answer those questions, and here’s why:

Reader: “Is it true you said Tobias doesn’t die in the third book? I saw it on Tumblr!”
Me: “It is not true that I said that. I never said anything about who dies or who doesn’t die.”
Reader: “Ahh! This must mean that he DOES die!”
Me: “No, it doesn’t!”
Reader: “So you’re saying he doesn’t?! I am so relieved!”
Me: “I am not saying that either! All I’m saying is that I didn’t say that thing that Tumblr said I said.”
Reader: “Wait, what?”

And so on.

I love that so many people are so concerned about what happens in book 3, because it means that you care, and that is awesome. I am lucky to have readers who want to throttle me for answers, really. I’m just trying to find a way to clarify things without alarming anyone with the pesky limitations of the English language, so here are the things I have actually said about Allegiant:

-It contains both Tris and Tobias’s POVs (points of view), alternating by chapter. (More on that here.)
-It is slightly longer than Divergent and Insurgent
-In it, you will find out what’s outside the fence

…and I’m pretty sure that’s it? And honestly, it’s pretty much all I will say before it comes out, because I want everyone to have a clean slate when they crack it open. Or as clean a slate as possible.

I feel like we need a word for “I did not say [insertspoilerhere] but I’m not saying it’s not true and I’m not saying it is true, I’m just saying that I didn’t say it.”

Maybe it can be…shenanigans?

As in:

Reader: “Veronica, did you say THIS?”
Me: “Shenanigans!”
Reader: “Ah, that clears it up.”

I’m going with it.

In other news, I am REALLY enjoying reading some of your theories about what’s going to happen. We will see if you are right…on October 22nd.

Or whenever you get around to reading it. It’s cool. 68 days left!

I love her… and now we know… don’t believe every rumour you hear… there are often SHENANIGANS!!!

Cover Reveal: Divergent short story ‘The Transfer’

Notice the circle is actually a Dauntless train? Personally I love the effect of that against the dark skyline of Chicago. What do you think?

Releasing between September 3, 2013 and February 11, 2014, they will be available as eBooks first and then the collection of all the stories will be published in paperback later.
