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 at least 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 book eight.

GO TELL THE BEES THAT I AM GONE is the ninth major book in my OUTLANDER series of major novels.

Excerpts from (aka “Daily Lines”)—and information about—BEES will be posted on my BEES official webpage as they are released. Also, I post the same excerpts on Facebook and Twitter.

Do I know when Book 9 will be finished? No. I am working on it now, and my books take at least 2-3 years to research and write. BEES will not be published in 2017; a publication date will be chosen and posted on this website when I am closer to finishing it.

Though BEES will not be ready this year, in April, 2017, a collection of my OUTLANDER short fiction will be released, SEVEN STONES TO STAND OR FALL. This collection has five previously published novellas, and two brand new works of my short fiction.

About reposting my excerpts from any of my books and short fiction, I’d appreciate it if you would not copy the excerpts and post them yourself all over the internet. Instead, please do pass on the links to my excerpts (“Daily Lines”) to anyone you think might be interested. Thanks!
