Book Nine of the Outlander Series (“BEES”)

2017-11-24-Diana-grbaby-pupsGO TELL THE BEES THAT I AM GONE (aka “BEES”) will be the ninth book in my OUTLANDER series of major novels, which focus on Jamie Fraser and Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser. I am currently working on the writing and historical research for this new novel.

In case you missed them, some recent excerpts (aka “Daily Lines”) from BEES:

   “Roger Wakes In A New Old Place,” from Wednesday, March 7, 2018, which celebrates the 30th Anniversary of when I began to write OUTLANDER in 1988. Note that may contain minor spoilers…

   “Bears,” from January 19, 2018.

   “A Small Gift In Honor Of My Birthday,” from January 11, 2018.

   “A Hunting We Will Go,” from November 24, 2017.

   “My Father?” from Thanksgiving Day, 2017.

   “A Bit of Trouble,” from November 11, 2017.

More excerpts are linked to my official webpage for GO TELL THE BEES THAT I AM GONE. Excerpts are listed by their temporary titles, which help describe what each is about, but are not chapter titles for the new book or anything like that.

When Will the Next Book Be Out?

Will there be a ninth major Outlander novel?

Yes… GO TELL THE BEES THAT I AM GONE (nicknamed “BEES”) is the ninth book in my OUTLANDER series of major novels, which I am writing (and doing the research for) now.

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

Excerpts (aka “Daily Lines”) from—and information about—BEES are posted on my BEES official webpage as they are released. Also, I often post the same excerpts on my official social media pages and accounts.

Do I know exactly when BEES will be finished? No. I am working on it now; my books take at least 3-4 years to research and write. I am hoping to finish writing BEES by the end of 2018, but no publication date is set yet by myself or my publisher. A publication date will be posted on this website when known.

About reposting my excerpts from any of my books and short fiction, 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 my excerpts (“Daily Lines”) to anyone you think might be interested. Thanks!
