Release Dates

Looking for information about when Diana Gabaldon's next book is coming out?  To the best of my knowledge -- and keeping in mind that I have NO inside information whatsoever! -- this is where things stand right now.  (Last updated April 14, 2015)


1) THE OUTLANDISH COMPANION (Revised and Updated Edition)

An updated edition of THE OUTLANDISH COMPANION Volume One was published on March 31, 2015.  See the OUTLANDISH COMPANION FAQ for more information.

2) Trade paperback edition of WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART'S BLOOD

The trade paperback edition (that's the large-size paperback) of WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART'S BLOOD will be published on June 2, 2015. You can pre-order here:


Barnes & Noble


The long-awaited OUTLANDISH COMPANION Volume Two, covering THE FIERY CROSS, A BREATH OF SNOW AND ASHES, AN ECHO IN THE BONE, and WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART'S BLOOD, will be published on October 27, 2015.

Please note that Diana Gabaldon is still writing this book, and the publication date is subject to change.  See the OUTLANDISH COMPANION FAQ for more information.

4) Book 9

Diana Gabaldon is still in the early stages of writing Book 9 of the OUTLANDER series.  It takes her 3-4 years to write one of the Big Books, so we likely won't see Book 9 in print until 2018 or 2019.  Please try to be patient!

5) E-book on how to write sex scenes

Diana has mostly finished writing this non-fiction e-book (about 40,000 words, working title BLUSHING OPTIONAL), but it doesn't yet have a publication date.


This is a contemporary crime novel featuring Tom Kolodzi, set in present-day Phoenix, AZ.  Again, we have very little information so far.

Stay tuned for further updates!
