When Will Book Nine (BEES) Be Published?
As I’ve posted here and on my social media accounts, I am getting close to finishing writing of and research for GO TELL THE BEES THAT I AM GONE, Book Nine of my Outlander series, but no, I don’t have a specific date. Soon.
After I have completed the BEES manuscript and historical research for the book, a lot of further work has to be done (by my publishers and I) before BEES will be on the bookshelves for you to buy, such as editing, typesetting, creation of a cover, etc.
My publishers will decide on the publication date, which is the first day that you can actually buy and receive the book. Of course, when a publication release date is known for the U.S.A., it will be prominently displayed here on my official website and on my official social media accounts! Publishers in other countries will determine the release dates in their areas, which vary.
The BEES Publication Date Won’t Be A Secret!
I’m so glad that many of you are looking forward to this book being published. Be assured as soon as a U.S. publication date is known, it will be prominently posted here on my official homepage and on my official BEES webpage! The releases for international editions will be either on the same date or after the U.S. edition is published.
Please check back on this website periodically for news. Thanks!
