Outlander series

Postby diamondlil » Fri September 5th, 2008, 10:07 am

I credit this author with getting me back into reading after a complete break of about 7 years. Yes, it's hard to believe but at one stage I barely read a book every few months!

Anyway, on her blog today, Diana Gabaldon has said that she is hoping to have finished writing the 7th but not the last book in the Outlander series by the end of the year with a view to having the book published in Fall of 2009.


She has also provided an excerpt if anyone is interested!

Thanks for sharing -- what a great excerpt. As much as I'm looking forward to more of Jamie and Claire that little teaser from the end of ABOSAA has me hankering for more of Roger and Bree and their journey back. I'm going to have to keep a close watch on the book listing - if I put in a purchase request at the library I'll be first on the hold list :)

Isn't it something when you can find an author who takes your life in a whole different direction? I was stuck reading true crime for years until I finally decided to break the mold and I found Joan Wolf's Born of the Sun buried amongst my older paperbacks. After that and The Other Boleyn Girl I never looked back, my books have to be in another century.

Found it listed on Amazon UK with a 2010 publication date. No listing on .com or .ca

I'll be interested to see if my purchase request at the library gets me at the top of the heap when it finally comes in :D

I have yet to read ABOSAA, but I think I am going to wait a little while to read it. Although I am dying to dig in to it, I dont want to wait such a long time imbetween that book and her new one An Echo in the Bone. I can hardly wait!!!! :D

People either love 'em or hate em' but be warned, if you love it they will take over your life. Can't remember the last time I was reading books whilst cooking dinner :p

Thank God I am not the only one who has these books take over their life. I have finished reading The Fiery Cross now for two weeks and am still thinking about Jaimy and Claire, Roger and Bree every day. I don't know how long I can wait before running out and getting A Breath of Snow and Ashes! I am wanting to savour them, you know like really good chocolates. Sigh!!!
