Happy Halloween!

And many thanks to Blue Moon Magnolia for this lovely tribute to Jamie’s backside. {g} [I call it "pumpkinbuns"--it's a reproduction of the famous Page 5 scene in THE EXILE.] Click “continue reading” to see the picture.

  1. And a happy halloween to you Blue Moon Magnolia. :)

  2. Mercy! As my co-worker just said when she saw the pumpkin, and I agree!

  3. As I commented when I first saw this last year, the creativity of OUTLANDER fans never ceases to amaze me! Can you imagine the amount of effort and skill it must have taken to do this? The picture makes me giggle, every time I look at it.

  4. Woohoo! That puts the treat in trick or treat. :) Happy All Hallows, Diana & Co…

  5. I do just LOVE this shot;) A definite Halloween treat

  6. This Jamie just looks so dad gum proud of himself. It makes me smile every time I see it.

  7. Pant Pant Pant, with a Wheeze in there too!

  8. Just add the track “Pumpkin’s Fancy” from the musical Scotland the Brave and I can see Jamie dancing with his pumpkin buns! Fitting for Halloween?

  9. I am so glad that you like my pumpkin! I actually had a cool carving idea for this year involving Lord John and zombies, but alas, life had other plans (of which I am very grateful). Maybe next year book 8 will be finished and I can use that for inspiration ;)

  10. Hubba, hubba!!!!

  11. Oh, now that’s a smokin’ pumpkin! (d&r)

    Amazing what your fans come up with!

  12. Thoroughly enjoyed Lord John and the Plague of Zombies. And we meet Ismael for the “first” time. And he introduces himself, if I remember correctly, just like he did in Voyager. Guffaw!

  13. I wonder what the inside of the pumpkin looks like! It’s fantastic!

  14. That’s a NICE pumpkin! I hope the candle’s not too close :)

  15. I’m loving it! I knew exactly where this scene came from.

  16. Now that makes my day!

  17. Ouch ! Is that a candle on the inside?

  18. Yummmmmy, this gives a whole new meaning to halloween treats!

  19. Quite possibly the most memorable “Bumkin” ever! Classic!

  20. That is just lovely… Should make a lampshade… what a treat to sleep next to every night..hmmmm

  21. A true work of art that is delicious too!

  22. WOW HAPPY HALLOWEEN INDEED!!!! BE STILL MY BEATING HEART ! LOVE THIS!!

  23. Now that’s what I call “Pumpkin Pie”!!!

  24. Dear Diana
    Today, I got my German version of the Graphic Novel and I have unfortunately to tell you, that 16 (!!) pages are missing :( I know, this is not the right threat… SRY for that. But, please, can you explain why in the English version (I have it on hand, too) it’s pictured, how Claire comes through the stones and first met Jamie (and Randall) but in the German version… Jamie gets hurt by the “Red” and on the next page Claire already cares for him _in_Leoch_ and Jamie let her see his back… There’s so much missing between Claire’s “grounding” in 1743, getting to know Jamie, Randall and coming to Leoch – the first negative votes on Amazon.de I had to read. Are these important pages missing in my book only (I_don’t_think_so) or is it a general fault in the German prints?
    Looking forward to your reply! And thank you for the whole story anyway!
    Greetings, Tanja.

    • Dear Tanja–

      My guess is that this is just a bindery error–unfortunately common in the publishing business. If so, then most likely you can just return your book to the store where you bought it and they’ll give you a new one. However, I’ve asked the German translator to please check with the German publisher, to be sure it isn’t a widespread thing, and to let me know if there’s something different one does with a defective book in Germany. I’m sorry this should have happened!

      —Diana

      • Dear Diana

        Thank you very much for your answer. I hope it isn’t a widespread thing! On Thursday, I will get my new graphic novel – hopefully that it will be complete! However, the book seller told me about the possibility, that the complete “charge” _might_ be defective. I’ll tell you on Thursday evening. Any new findings from the German publisher or translator?
        Thank you very much for your reply! And sorry for the inconvenience!

        Tanja.

        • Dear Diana

          Today, I got my _complete_ graphic novel!! The book store will return the defective one to the publisher with a corresponding remark. I’ve got hundreds of books, but such thing never happened to me before. Sorry for any inconvenience again!!

          Greetings, Tanja.
