I figured everybody already knew this, but Sony just sent me assets (aka photos) to announce the beginning of filming on Season 6!

This is the only official website for Diana Gabaldon, bestselling author of the OUTLANDER series of major novels, the Lord John series, and other works. All first-person text was written by Diana Gabaldon. Text with a third-person voice was (usually) added by Diana’s Webmistress.

When Will the Next Book Be Out?


GO TELL THE BEES THAT I AM GONE (nicknamed “BEES”) will be my next book, the ninth book in my OUTLANDER series of major novels. It will probably be published some time in 2021, with the exact date to be set by my publishers.

Current information about BEES is posted on my official BEES webpage, where you may access sample excerpts or “Daily Lines”, also.

BEES will follow WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART’S BLOOD, aka “MOBY,” the eighth novel in my OUTLANDER series, which was first published in the U.S.A. in 2014.

Book Ten

After BEES is published, I will write Book Ten (no title yet), which will be the last book in the OUTLANDER series of major novels that focus on Jamie and Claire. Book Ten will be another Large Novel, so it will take some time (several years at least) to complete.

And I have plans for multiple projects after Book Ten…
