Outlander-TV_GuideThe much anticipated Outlander TV series made its debut in the U.S.A. on the STARZ cable network on Saturday, August 9. I think it’s amazing, and I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do!

The first year of the series has sixteen episodes and will be shown in a “split” format. Eight episodes will be shown, one per week, starting on August 9, and the second eight episodes will air in January, 2015.

MOBY (Book Eight) Is A Bestseller!

MOBY cover final USTHANK YOU, ALL!!! … Very happy, and very grateful—and Really Thankful for all of you!

WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART’S BLOOD (aka “MOBY”) made its debut at number one on the June 29 best seller list of the New York Times in the Hardcover Fiction category AND in the Combined Print and E-Book Fiction category! (The June 29 list reflected the sales in the U.S.A. ending on June 14, 2014, only four days after MOBY was released on June 10 in the U.S.A. and Canada.) The new book is also a best seller in Canada!

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 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 number 8.
