• “The smartest historical sci-fi adventure-romance story ever written by a science Ph.D. with a background in scripting 'Scrooge McDuck' comics.”—Salon.com
  • A time-hopping, continent-spanning salmagundi of genres.”
  • “These books have to be word-of-mouth books because they're too weird to describe to anybody.”
    —Jackie Cantor, Diana's first editor


2012 AZ Ren Fest

Event Host: Random House Publishing

I’m thrilled to announce the virtual GO TELL THE BEES THAT I AM GONE launch event to celebrate its publication! You will need a ticket (even the virtual world is not infinite, alas), but tickets are available NOW! You may sign up for a free ticket or one of the paid options, which includes a copy of the book.

So—I hope you’ll join us on Monday, November 22 at 7:00 p.m. (Eastern Time-U.S.A.) for a virtual event celebrating all things Outlander and launching my new book.

This will be the only major book event that I’m doing this fall, where I will discuss BEES, the Starz Outlander TV show, and more. I’ll be in conversation with Sam Heughan, Maril Davis, Maureen Lee Lenker from Entertainment Weekly; I’ll answer some of your burning questions (you can submit yours for review when you register for your ticket!); and there will be, um, a few secret things, as well.

You can find all information about the event, and order your tickets, at the link here:


Below is information on what you’ll likely need to watch this event, and the types of tickets are described, as well.

What Kind of Device Do You Need To Watch?

From Diana’s Webmistress:

This is a virtual event, similar to a giant business meeting online, except readers and fans will be spectators. You will need access to a computer, tablet or other device with an internet connection that is capable of and robust enough for streaming video. A good test of your internet connection is the ability to stream a movie or a service like Netflix, Hulu, or Disney+.

This event will be broadcast live on November 22 and will likely use vimeo in your web browser. When you sign up for a ticket, you will receive emails with the link (aka URL) to click on in your web browser app to join the event on November 22 at 7 p.m. EST. [IF YOU ARE NOT IN THE EASTERN TIME ZONE IN THE U.S.A. YOU WILL NEED TO FIGURE OUT YOUR EQUIVALENT LOCAL TIME.]

Note that joining the event may not work with Internet Explorer (a PC web browser) or Safari (a Mac and iOS web browser). So it may be a good idea to install the latest Chrome web browser on your computer or tablet before the event to ensure that you will be able to watch the event.

General Information – Appearances

Please keep the following in mind:

  • If tickets are required for an event, they may be free or require a fee which goes to the hosting organization or sponsor. Tickets for ALL events featuring Diana usually sell out very quickly once they become available.
  • Sometimes Diana’s Webmistress doesn’t receive information and details about events in a timely manner, and can’t post what she doesn’t have. Event hosts featuring Diana are strongly encouraged to notify Diana’s Webmistress when they post an event with Diana, and also dates when tickets will go on sale so that readers will be kept informed.
  • PLEASE CHECK WITH THE HOSTING ORGANIZATION OR SPONSOR of an appearance or event OFTEN for the latest information, ticketing, venue changes, policies and updates! This list is provided as a convenience and my webmistress works hard to keep it current, but it may not always be perfectly up-to-date.
  • If you have questions about an appearance or need more details, please contact the host organization or sponsor listed, not myself or my staff. The hosts or sponsors do the event planning and have all the answers. Thanks!
  • Diana is always happy to sign and personalize your books at signing events as time allows. However, note that some events and venues may require a book purchase or have a limit on how many books you can bring from home for signing. Please check with the event host or sponsor if details are not listed on this webpage.
