Oct. 27: THE OUTLANDISH COMPANION, VOL. TWO!
On October 27, 2015, THE OUTLANDISH COMPANION, VOLUME TWO (aka "OC II") will be released in the U.S.A.! As the second volume of THE OUTLANDISH COMPANION, VOLUME ONE, this new book will reveal details of how I wrote the second eight major novels in the OUTLANDER series: THE FIERY CROSS, A BREATH OF SNOW AND ASHES, AN ECHO IN THE BONE, and WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART’S BLOOD. More information.
Though I will not be going on a book tour for OC II, the Poisoned Pen bookstore will host a live web interview with me in October (time and date to be announced) to discuss the new book. Anyone on the globe may tune in! (Details will be posted when available.) The Pen also will have copies of OC II available that are signed by me.
I’m trying as hard as possible—with mixed results—NOT to go anywhere through the end of 2015 so I can stay home and get the next book written. <wry g>
Still, I will be appearing at a few fun and exciting events this year! I will speak in Portland, OR on August 30. On September 26, I will be at the Maryland Renaissance Festival. The next day I am honored to receive the Mason Award at the Fall For the Book festival in Fairfax, Virginia. Davina Porter, the acclaimed reader for my audiobooks, will also give a reading at the book festival1
From November 6-8 I will be an author guest at RingCon 2015 in Bonn, Germany, billed as one of the largest science fiction and fantasy conventions in Europe. Four male stars from the OUTLANDER TV series will also appear with me at the convention: Sam Heughan (who plays Jamie Fraser), Graham McTavish (Dougal MacKenzie), Gary Lewis (Colum MacKenzie), and Duncan Lacroix (Murtagh Fraser)!
Check out my Appearances webpage for more details. Thanks!
Book Nine Excerpts
Want to read excerpts from Book Nine in the OUTLANDER series of novels, which I am in the process of creating? Click here to access the Book Nine webpage, which provides links to samples of my new book. Remember that the excerpts contain SPOILERS…
Book Nine follows the eighth OUTLANDER novel, WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART’S BLOOD, which was released in the summer of 2014 in the U.S.A. in hardcover.
No publication date has been set for Book Nine. And no, I don’t know yet when I will finish it! <g> My books always take several years to research and write.
Looking for something to read until Book Nine is released? Besides OC II, my suggestions of books by other authors are in my Methadone List.
OUTLANDER TV Series News
Want to read selected news items about the Outlander TV series, such as an interview with Grant O’Rourke, who plays Rupert, and other news and interviews? My Webmistress and I list selected stories about the series in my Outlander TV Series News Page. Since good articles can get lost on social media posts, this list is an ongoing compilation and record of the history of the series, and is also very useful to those who don’t use Facebook or Twitter.
No, it’s not an all-inclusive list of each and every story that has come out to date about the series. If you want that, just use your favorite search engine.
