A Note From Diana About The Pen
The Poisoned Pen is my local independent bookshop. They carry all of my books, in all formats (hardcover, trade paperback, mass-market paperback, audiobook, U.S. and U.K. editions, plus some miscellaneous foreign-language editions), all the time. And the Pen ships anywhere in the world. <g>
I normally go by the store a couple of times a month, both to buy books for reading (it’s a great store; mysteries are their specialty, but they carry a number of other things, and have a specialty in signed first editions, too), and to sign my books that people have ordered.
The latest news from the Pen’s friendly staff is included below!
News From The Poisoned Pen
Two exciting new anthologies featuring short fiction by Diana—SEVEN STONES TO STAND OR FALL and MATCHUP—will be released in June, 2017! A special 25th Anniversary edition of DRAGONFLY IN AMBER will be released in the Fall, also. Signed copies of all three are available now for preorder from the Pen.
A special public event featuring a talk and book signing with Diana is scheduled in Scottsdale, Arizona on June 10, 2017! This event will celebrate the new MATCHUP anthology, and is hosted by the Poisoned Pen! Special hotel rates for out-of-town readers are available, too. Please see Diana’s Appearances webpage for all the details!
June, 2017: SEVEN STONES TO STAND OR FALL
The next new book from Diana Gabaldon will be a collection of her short fiction, SEVEN STONES TO STAND OR FALL, which will be released on June 27, 2017 in the U.S.A. and also to selected international markets in hardback and ebook editions. It contains five novellas from the Outlander and Lord John series previously published in multi-author anthologies and ebook formats, plus two NEW novellas.

If you pre-order, a copy of the hardcover edition will be reserved for you, and shipped soon after the June 27 publisher’s release date. There is no extra charge for Diana’s signature, but you do pay for postage. For international readers, the Pen ships orders anywhere in the world. Don’t miss out on this exciting new collection!
June, 2017: MATCHUP Anthology
Diana has partnered with Steve Berry to produce a story in the International Thriller Writer’s anthology ($27), MATCHUP, edited by Lee Child, out in early June. This story is not included in SEVEN STONES TO STAND OR FALL.
It’s a fabulous story, an Outlander story where Jamie meets up with Steve Berry’s lead character, Cotton Malone, who is on a quest for a missing rare book, a grimoire. The authors solve the two-plus century time differential with brilliance.
Diana will sign her story and we include either a signed bookplate by Steve Berry or possibly his and other signatures. Watch this space for any updates. There are other terrific writing duos with stories in this book including Lee Child/Kathy Reichs; CJ Box/Sandra Brown; John Sandford/Lisa Jackson; Val McDermid/Peter James; Gayle Lynds/David Morrell; Karin Slaughter/Michael Koryta; Charlaine Harris/Andrew Gross. And more.
Click here to pre-order your signed copy of MATCHUP (U.S.A. edition) from the Pen’s online bookstore. If you have questions, or prefer to call in your order, please contact the Pen (see below).
As with SEVEN STONES, if you pre-order MATCHUP, a copy of the hardcover edition will be reserved for you, and shipped as soon as possible after the publisher’s release date in June. There is never an extra charge for Diana’s signature, but you do pay for postage. For international readers, the Pen ships orders anywhere in the world.
