The Poisoned Pen – Autographed Books

A Note From Diana About The Pen

2014-05-Diana-Pen3-smThe Poisoned Pen is my local independent bookshop.  They carry all 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 own books that people have ordered.

The Pen usually has copies of all of my books and selected OUTLANDER merchandise in stock, including copies signed by me. Please contact the Pen or check their website for availability.



Upcoming Events with Diana At The Pen

The Poisoned Pen is hosting two events featuring Diana Gabaldon in November, 2016 to celebrate new releases. Here is additional information from the Poisoned Pen staff:

Saturday, NOVEMBER 5, 6:00 p.m.

2016-10-thehighwaykindDiana Gabaldon will join C.J. Box, Gary Phillips, and James Sallis at The Poisoned Pen, 4014 N. Goldwater, Scottsdale AZ 85251 to sign her story in THE HIGHWAY KIND (Mulholland $15.99), a new anthology. This book is also presigned by Michael Connelly, and Patrick Millikin of The Poisoned Pen staff, the book’s editor.

Authors also in attendance, but not signing the book, will be Hank Phillippi Ryan, Linwood Barclay.

This event is free. Please do not bring any personal books to be signed.

Diana’s story is set in 1938 Germany, involves a race car and death, and she credits her husband Doug for the idea and technical knowledge. It is based on real history.

Can’t attend? Click here to order your copy from the Pen. No inscriptions (additional text other than author signatures).

Note: While copies of THE MAKING OF OUTLANDER go on sale October 18, it is Diana’s policy not to sign a book authored by someone else unless the author also signs it. So you may buy an unsigned copy on October 18 and bring it (with your receipt from the Poisoned Pen) to the November 10 event at the Pen, or leave it with the bookstore to be signed.

Thursday, November 10, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.

Sometime in November

virgins-hardcoverSome time in November, copies of “Virgins” (Century $26), an Outlander novella, will arrive at the Poisoned Pen. Each copy will be signed by Diana Gabaldon.

Please order your copy of “Virgins” (Century $26) soon to avoid disappointment. Note that added inscriptions must be limited to no more than five words and cannot be guaranteed.

(Note from Diana’s Webmistress: This special edition of Diana’s VIRGINS novella as a standalone hardback book is an international edition printed in the U.K., and is not available through the usual sources in the U.S.A. "Virgins" originally appeared in the DANGEROUS WOMEN anthology edited by George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois.)

And the Poisoned Pen staff recommends THE OFFICIAL OUTLANDER COLORING BOOK ($16.95), signed by Diana, as well as any of her Outlander novels as gifts.
