INSURGENT: An Editorial Love Story

From this....
(that's about one-third of the rounds of editorial & production passes of INSURGENT, FYI.)

Sometimes, less is more. So this post will be short, but deeply-felt (yep, my faction would be Candor).

It is an incredible thing to watch a book take wings and find resonance with so many readers, as DIVERGENT has done.

It is an incredible thing to watch readers waiting with such enthusiasm for a book, and to know what awaits them (being an editor has its perks!), and to be so, so excited for the moment when readers and the story get to connect again.

And it is an incredible thing when an author outdoes herself and creates a sequel like INSURGENT, one that is even more compelling, even more powerfully written, than its predecessor.

Veronica Roth, you continue to amaze us all with this story. Thank you so much for creating it. Today (and every day), I am a lucky editor, and we are all lucky readers

Happy reading, friends!


  1. Congrats, Molly!




  2. SO excited. Congrats to editor and author :) Also, can't believe how much paper it took...

  3. Exciting! I have both books on my To Read list. I'm a little burnt out on dystopian YA BUT Divergent is so highly acclaimed I know it will be a good read :)

  4. Congrats to the whole team! Can't wait to read it! (Also, the visual of the revision process is SO heartening. Thank you!)
