When Will the Next Book Be Out?


GO TELL THE BEES THAT I AM GONE (nicknamed “BEES”) is my next book to be published and is the ninth book in my OUTLANDER series of major novels featuring Jamie and Claire.

On March 27, 2021, I announced that I have finished writing BEES, and it now will go through the publication process. Hopefully, BEES will be published some time in 2021, but there is no guarantee, and the exact release date will be set by my publishers. When known, the publication date will be posted here on my webpages!

Current information about BEES is posted on my official BEES webpage, where you may access sample excerpts or “Daily Lines”, also.

BEES follows WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART’S BLOOD, aka “MOBY,” the eighth novel in my OUTLANDER series, which was first published in the U.S.A. in 2014.

Book Ten

After BEES is published, I will write Book Ten (no title yet), which will be the last book in the 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.

And 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.
