WORKS IN PROGRESS

WORK(S) IN PROGRESS

I’ve been getting the occasional email lately expressing interest in what-all I’m writing these days, since there seems to be a lot of it. [g] Well, there is a lot of it. I do normally work on multiple things at once (it keeps me from having writer’s block, for one thing), but I will say there’s more variety in the old to-do pile than usual, thanks to several invitations from interesting anthologies.
I’ve also been hearing wildly varied guesses-most of them totally wrong, and where y’all get this stuff, I have no idea.regarding when any of these various works will be published.

In (rough) order of priority at the moment, though, I’m working on the following things-and I’ll post an excerpt or two from each of these, over the next few days (so if you’re an excerpt-avoider, be careful!):
AN ECHO IN THE BONE – this is the 7th (but NOT the last!) book in the main OUTLANDER series, in which we continue the adventures of Jamie, Claire, Roger, Brianna, Young Ian, Willie, Lord John-and a Lot of Other Interesting People You Haven’t Met Yet.

I’m hoping to have the manuscript finished by the end of this year-and therefore am trying Really Hard not to go anywhere for the rest of the year.

**** THIS DOES NOT MEAN THE BOOK WILL BE OUT IN DECEMBER of this year-IT WON’T!!!! It means I’ll be through writing it, I hope. IT WILL BE PUBLISHED (God willing and the creek don’t rise) probably in Fall of 2009. *******
SEE (OR DON”T SEE [g]) NEXT POST FOR EXCERPT.

  1. Although I love all your work, the Outlander series (I don't like to call it the Jamie & Claire story because there are so many other important characters) remains my favorite. I'm excited to hear that it's at the head of your list right now.

    I'm so glad I found your blog (from a wonderful Outlander themed knitting swap I've joined), but I cannot believe it took me an entire year to do so!

  2. Im so glad you posted an update of whats going on. I feel like a stalker checking your offcial Outlander website everyday. Not that I mind being a stalker.

  3. What’s the status of the graphic novel (Jamie, pre-Claire) that you were working on?

  4. Autumn of 2009, eh? Just in time for my 30th wedding anniversary! :-)

  5. Diana,

    Seriously, when do you get to eat, sleep, read the paper, etc.? I know you say it’s your job, but you seem to have so many jobs simultaneously lately. Do you still keep to your late night work/early morning sleep schedule you had when the kids were little, and if so, do you do so cuz you like it or it’s become habit? Inquiring minds want to know -

  6. Oooh, what a treasure! Multiple DG posts to sift through, and some excerpts to tide us all over… :) Thank you!

    The Echo snippet is beautiful, LJG intriguing, and the GN a treat.

    My husband just saw me persuing your site, and said I don’t need to mention your last name – “Diana” will suffice, or just “my idol” LOL… imagine if he read The Books! :-)

  7. Diana,

    I love the way you keep us in suspense with every small exerpt that you tease us with. I can honestly say that with every teaser, it makes us look forward to what is to come.

    Keep us in suspense…

  8. Dear Bedelia–

    Yeah, I still work at night–though quite a bit during the day, now, too. [g] My biorhythm is semi-nocturnal, and I like it late at night–totally quiet, nobody bothers me, the phone doesn’t ring…

  9. Another whole year… (sigh)…

    MUST you eat and sleep? (I’m just sayin’….)

    ;-)
