    I don’t know if you saw my earlier comment. I’m on my second round of Go Tell the Bees I’m Gone. Enjoyable this time around. My last comment when Jamie was shot I shut the book and cried. If and when your going to end this saga of Jamie and Claire please let them go together. They can’t survive without each other. I have been reading your Outlander series since 1991 and if feels like yesterday. Love your writing.

    • Glad you love my books and are so fond of Jamie and Claire.

      As to how the story of Jamie and Claire will end–likely in Book Ten, which I am working on now–you’ll have to wait and see.

      One thing I will mention again is that the mystery of Jamie’s ghost in Outlander will be solved and revealed in the final novel of the Outlander series.

      Bee happy and don’t worry too much. <g>


  2. Hello,
    I recently completed Go Tell The Bees ai am Gone. I have read all of your novels – several times over again which is something I never do. However, for me Bees was a disappointment because there was hardly ant focus on Claire and Jamie. Please don’t try to just appeal to the younger audience by focusing on such a weak character such as William. He’s not a strong character- not strong enough to lead a story. You have written this beautiful, passionate, adventurous love story based on two strong, wonderful characters, Please see it through! Don’t let Jamie and Ckaire fade away quite yet. Thank you. I think you’re amazing and you are my favorite author.
