Diana Gabaldon, author of the Outlander series, recently announced on Twitter book 9 of the series (Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone) will be out in 2019. Your elation can be short-lived once you realize there are 365 days in 2019. Sure the book is coming sometime in the next year but are we looking at Spring, Summer, or Fall?
Still this is reason to be joyous as the last book, Written In My Own Heart's Blood, came out June 10, 2014. So that particular droughtlander is coming to a close. But as Herself said, "Book 10 will be along summat later...' Are we looking at 2024 which might just make it under the wire to finish off the TV series?
Super exciting news on the Con front. Outlander will be in attendance at the Wizard World Chicago, August 23-26. And if that wasn't exciting enough there will be an awesome photo experience.
Apparently a replica prop company, Experience Entertainment, will be bringing a complete Outlander fan experience and attendees will be able to have your photos with cast member at Craigh na Dun! This will be at an extra cost but talk about FANtastic.
Diana will be a guest author at Phoenix Comic Fest (for one day only).
Purchased membership to the Fest is required for entry to all events. (As always, buy early to ensure you obtain a membership.)
Phoenix Comic Fest

[Diana Gabaldon] was born in January 11 in 1952 in Arizona, where she grew up with her sister and parents.
According to Diana Gabaldon, six of the upcoming Season 3 episodes are very close to the book.
Did Frank Become Unfaithful?Diana Gabaldon also said that the mystery on whether or not Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies) cheated on Claire (Caitriona Balfe) would finally be settled in the coming season. In the book, Gabaldon left this part ambiguous and let the readers decide whether or not they will hate Frank.
I personally don't think this is so mysterious but maybe that is just me.
So has she, I wonder, given the series a definitive ending? “I wrote the last scene of the last book 15 years ago,” she replies, after the kind of wry pause that seems to typify her approach.
I am standing in an ostentatiously nondescript modern building in Granton, a suburb of Edinburgh, next to a former marine biologist whose novels have sold in excess of 30m copies. We are looking at the backside of what resembles a large tartan onesie. The author is Diana Gabaldon, who is eagerly taking photographs on her mobile and gleefully saying she will be sending these to the person who does the costumes for Outlander, the TV series based on her cult sequence of novels that launched in 2014.
For writers looking to make sure their next physical interlude on the page inspires readers to share the moment rather than to laugh at it, bestselling author Diana Gabaldon divulges the writing secrets behind the sex scenes in her wildly popular Outlander novels.
“Ask me to your bed,” he said. “I shall come to ye.”
In this revealing compendium, acclaimed writer Diana Gabaldon shares her invaluable lessons for creating an immersive reading experience, from evoking a mood to using the power of emotions to communicate physical intimacy. You’ll learn the difference between gratuitous sex and genuine encounters that move the story forward, and how to handle less-than-savory acts that nevertheless serve a narrative purpose. Gabaldon also notes that sex can be conveyed instead of described. With such tips as “The Rule of Three” for involving the senses, handy lists of naughty euphemisms (with instructions for use), and Gabaldon’s own examples from the Outlander novels, “I Give You My Body . . .” is a master class in writing to draw readers in and keep them riveted to the page.
Happy Anniversary to Herself
