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 July 1, 2014)



1) WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART'S BLOOD

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


The German edition will be published on July 21, 2014.

See my Book 8 FAQ page for more information.



2) OUTLANDER TV Series tie-in paperback

In anticipation of the series premiere of the OUTLANDER TV series on STARZ, Random House released a special "TV tie-in edition" of OUTLANDER on July 1, 2014.

Please see Diana Gabaldon's blog post of May 16, 2014 for more information.  If you live in the US, you can order the STARZ tie-in paperback of OUTLANDER from Amazon or Barnes and Noble, or check with your local bookstore.



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 doesn't yet have a publication date.

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!
