On Monday, Veronica Roth, author of the Divergent trilogy and Carve the Mark, launched her first newsletter and announced the release date for the sequel to Carve the Mark, April 10, 2018. She hopes to send it out once a month with “news updates, FAQs, book recommendations, maybe some playlists, pictures of puppies and…some exclusive content.”
(If you’d like to sign up for her newsletter, you can click here. You’ll find it at the bottom of her homepage. If you’d like to pre-order the as of yet unnamed Carve the Mark sequel, or as Veronica calls it Carve the Mark 2, you can click here. )
And in keeping with her commitment to provide exclusive content, she gave fans a behind the scenes peek of the second book in the Carve the Mark duology. According to Veronica, the sequel is currently undergoing editing (finding word repetitions, grammar/punctuation errors, etc.)
Included in the newsletter were pictures and explanations of what the editing process looks like.
The pages she shared are from somewhere in the middle of the book, and explains how the protagonists of the story, Akos and Cyra, have arrived at the mysterious “shadow planet” which no one seems to know much about since it’s nearly impenetrable.
And in closing her first newsletter, she kept her word and provided us a picture of her very cute dog, Avi, when she was a puppy.
