Season 6 Premiered on Sunday, March 6!

Starz-Outlander-Season6-smallThe long-awaited premiere of Outlander Season Six was Sunday, March 6, 2022 at in the U.S.A. on the Starz cable network.

I consider this a good omen, because I began writing OUTLANDER on March 6, 1988. So I have great expectations for this season.

This season will focus on the events in A BREATH OF SNOW AND ASHES, the sixth major novel in my Outlander series which focuses on Jamie and Claire.

The new season kicks off with a special 90-minute episode, and will pick up not long after events in the Season Five finale, which as you may remember were kind of traumatic. I think Season Six is the best season yet since Season One, which was very special because it was the first. As to what you’ll see, I leave you with three words:

Christie, Amoeba, and Brown.

When Will the Next Book Be Out?

Currently I am working on Book Ten (no title yet) in my OUTLANDER series of major novels that focus on Jamie and Claire. Book Ten will be another Large Novel, so it will take some time (several years at least) to complete.

Click here to visit my Book Ten webpage for current news and excerpts (aka “Daily Lines”) from this new novel.

Book Ten will follow GO TELL THE BEES THAT I AM GONE (nicknamed “BEES”), the ninth book in my OUTLANDER series of major novels featuring Jamie and Claire. BEES was first released on November 23, 2021.

I have plans for multiple projects after Book Ten such as a prequel novel about Jamie’s parents, and perhaps a book about Master Raymond. Plus I have a contemporary mystery, set in Phoenix, Arizona, on the back burner.
