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

Releases in 2017
Two exciting new anthologies featuring short fiction by Diana—SEVEN STONES TO STAND OR FALL and MATCHUP—were released in June, 2017! Signed copies of both are available from the Pen.
June, 2017: SEVEN STONES TO STAND OR FALL
A collection of Diana’s short fiction, SEVEN STONES TO STAND OR FALL, was released on June 27, 2017 in the U.S.A. and 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.

Diana has partnered with author Steve Berry to produce a story in the International Thriller Writer’s anthology ($27), MATCHUP, edited by Lee Child, which was released in June, 2017. 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.
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 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).
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.
