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.
