I had a great time at New York Comic Con (NYCC) in the Big Apple on October 9!
An exciting new trailer for Season Six of the Starz Outlander TV series was unveiled during a special Outlander panel discussion with Maril Davis (executive producer), Sam Heughan (the actor who portrays Jamie Fraser) and myself in person. Joining us virtually were stars Caitriona Balfe, Sophie Skelton, Lauren Lyle, Cesar Domboy, and John Bell. Please scroll down to view the new trailer.
New tidbits about the TV series discussed included:
- Come What May… New graphic art for season six was released at NYCC (see below and at right). It features snow, which is appropriate since these new episodes are based on A BREATH OF SNOW AND ASHES, the sixth book in my OUTLANDER series of major novels.
- “They’re such a weird little family,’ Sam Heughan teased about the Christie family joining the show. If you’ve read my books, you know that the trio will be causing trouble in North Carolina.
- Season Six of the Outlander TV series will be released by STARZ in early 2022. Season Seven will begin filming next year with a future release date to be announced. And,
- Check out the article by TV Insider for more of what was discussed at this panel.

GO TELL THE BEES THAT I AM GONE, the ninth book in my OUTLANDER series of major novels, will be released in the U.S.A., Canada, the U.K., and Germany on November 23, 2021 or soon after.
I think I preordered Bees but its been a while. Could you please check for me? Thanks, Nancy+
Diana does not handle the actual selling of her books at all. That is the job of booksellers and her publisher.
You will need to contact the vendor where you pre-ordered the book, whether it was an online book dealer, your local bookstore, or a copy that will be signed by Diana from the Poisoned Pen bookstore (U.S.A.) or Waterstones (U.K.).
Love the book and show, my husband and I watch and rewatch continuously. It has made a difficult g to one bearable and gives us something to look forward to in this terrible pandemic.
Going to an event next year featuring Murtagh (my husband’s favorite character) and Jocasta. Can’t wait!
Would love to see Murtagh again either in “earlier times” or maybe his death was faked to get Teton off his trail and he was spirited away to Canada… where J may end up as well… just daydreaming but would love to see more about them.❤️
Dear Diana — I am 85 years old and doubt I will live to see the end of your remarkable series (will there be an end?) I am reading synopses of seasons 1 to 4 and enjoying them very much. I am in the middle of Voyager, the part where Clare returns to Jamie after 20 years in the 20th C. When she discovers that he married whilst she was away she is devastated, fights with him etc. Are you aware of the Enoch Arden laws in most US states that say that when a spouse is absent 7 years with no contact or news, the deserted spouse is free to remarry? This is from a Tennyson poem called Enoch Arden about that very situation. I do not expect total realism in your wonderful stories but Jeez Louise, what did Clare expect? Jamie didn’t even get a postcard for 20 years! Clare throughout the books has been a pain in the ass, but in this she hits bottom. I will keep reading your books and am still a fan, but this is a serious misstep. i guess in such a long and extremely complicated series of books it is easy to get tired and mess up a minor detail but it changes the way I look at Clare… Looking forward to synopses of the rest of the books…Warmest regards, Shayna
Just finished reading bees! Bravo. You scared me though. Lol. Now what what do I do !!! Seriously I do so appreciate your talent. You are one the very few writers that has me reading every word. I can see the scenes come to life. Passages in your books have literally brought me to tears and out loud laughter. I feel like this is no small feat and the mark of a truly gifted author. Thank you so very much.
I do have a question though have read The Winthrope woman. I think you would find it intriguing. The heroine actually lived and happens to be my 9X GGM. The story is embellished but still fascinating.
Again thank you, the story of Jamie and Claire makes me think of her and her life in more vivid terms.
Oh Diana,,,,, I just reached the end of Bees,,,,, I am flying and dying…… Thank you thank you thank you for the years and years of suspense, love, friendship, history and joy. While we await the end,
May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, may the rain fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Thrilled to be reading Bees, hear the voices of the characters as I read and the general inflection of humor when appropos, AND sometimes not so much but ahmm, the rough edges of some of these characters make it all the more real ….. Love the wit and quick repartee. A tribute to your skill.
I will be ordering the Hard Cover for my personal library. My mother however cannot handle the hardcover. She prefers the paperback books. Do you know when this new book will be available in paperback? Would love to get it for her birthday this March 2022.
The paperback edition of a new, bestselling novel is not offered until some time after the hardcover edition has been released. Usually at least a year or two. Will be long after March, 2022. And it also depends on which country you live in.
Perhaps your mom would do well with an ebook edition on an ipad, kindle, or other hand-held device? Or the audio version?
Wish your mom a Happy Birthday for me!
I’ve finished Bees! another of your magnificent books! Thanks Diana for writing so well that it takes us to be immersed on the scenes.
The way you write is unique, there is something there that I cannot find in many writers.
The only draw back is that we will have to wait another 3 years to finish the saga!
Keep on writing you are a genius
Oh Diana, indeed! When I first saw the title “Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone”, a chill went through me, and I dreaded reading to the end of the book. I was sure this was the end of Jamie and Claire. Thank you for leaving the door open for a tenth novel.
I’ve read and re-read the whole series – best I’ve read in my entire long life! Hope to read another in the years to come.
Bless you and your fertile mind!
