• “The smartest historical sci-fi adventure-romance story ever written by a science Ph.D. with a background in scripting 'Scrooge McDuck' comics.”—Salon.com
  • A time-hopping, continent-spanning salmagundi of genres.”
  • “These books have to be word-of-mouth books because they're too weird to describe to anybody.”

When Will the Next Book Be Out?

WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART’S BLOOD, aka “MOBY,” the eighth major novel in the OUTLANDER series, was released in the U.S.A. and Canada on Tuesday, June 10, 2014. Will there be a ninth major Outlander novel? Yes…

There’s at least one more. I’ve never been willing to commit to more than one at a time, because I just don’t know — I don’t plan the books out ahead of time. So I have no idea how much ground we’ll cover in each book. But there is certainly one more book, because I wasn’t finished telling the story at the end of book eight.

Click here to read excerpts from book nine, and other information as it becomes available. Also, I post the same excerpts on Facebook and Twitter.

Do I know when Book 9 will be finished? No! I am working on it now, and my books take at least 2-3 years to research and write.

About reposting my excerpts, I’d appreciate it if you would not copy the excerpts and post them yourself all over the internet. Instead, please do pass on the links to anyone you think might be interested. Thanks!
