Release Dates

There have been a lot of questions on Compuserve, Facebook, and various fan sites lately about when Diana's next book(s) will be 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 March 10, 2014)



1) WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART'S BLOOD

[UPDATED March 5, 2014, 7:06 pm]

WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART'S BLOOD (Book 8 of the OUTLANDER series) will be published in the US and Canada on June 10, 2014!  Look here for Diana's announcement with more details.

The German edition will be published on June 9, 2014.

The UK edition will be published on June 5, 2014.

See my Book 8 FAQ page for more information.



2) "The Space Between" standalone e-book

Diana Gabaldon's novella, "The Space Between" (the story of Young Ian's brother Michael, Marsali's sister Joan, and the Comte St. Germain) will be released as a standalone e-book on April 15, 2014 in the US and Canada.  It will sell for $1.99, and it will be available for Kindle, Nook, etc.  See "The Space Between" FAQ page for more information.

3) 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 won't be published until sometime after MOHB is completed. 

4) THE OUTLANDISH COMPANION, Volume 2

We have very little information about the OC II, other than the fact that Diana has been collecting a lot of things to put in it. <g>

Diana had this to say on Facebook on October 15, 2011, in response to a question about when we might see the OC II in print:
The publisher says they don't want to bring it out until after Book Eight, so we can include WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART'S BLOOD _in_ the OC II.
If I find out anything more specific, I'll post it here.

5) RED ANT'S HEAD, aka BROKEN WEB

This is a contemporary crime novel featuring Tom Kolodzi, set in present-day Phoenix, AZ.  Diana has said she might focus on this book next, after MOHB is completed.  Stay tuned for further updates!
