Other Nice Things Fans Do

I’m constantly amazed (and occasionally staggered) by the heights of creativity to which so many of you rise–and very flattered and humbled that my novels seem able to provide the inspiration for such a variety of endeavor!

I’ll mention/display just a few of the most recent or striking examples here, but will add more as we go along.  Thank you!

Recently got this tweet from a Brazilian reader, Robson Carvalho (aka @MrFraser), who’d asked whether I was coming to Brazil for the new release of DRUMS OF AUTUMN.  I answered that alas, the Brazilian publisher has never asked me to come, and received this in reply:

Mrfraser Robson Carvalho @Writer_DG too sad :( .I’m obsessed about Claire and Jamie… even got a tattoo about outlander. You inspire me Diana ♥♥♥♥♥

Well, I naturally inquired about the tattoo…

Mrfraser Robson Carvalho @Writer_DG sure! it’s my version of Claire’s face, an old clock, some roses, a dragonfly and it’s written “je suis prest” wanna see a pic?

Of course I did!

Not Fan Art, as such, but I was very flattered—and Most Entertained—by an email from the Old Wilmington Tea Company, asking whether I would mind if they named a new Earl Grey tea-blend after Lord John.  I was delighted, especially when they later sent me a box of their delicious goodies, including a tin of Lord John Grey tea.  (It’s great tea; very aromatic and flavorful, not at all bitter.)

The page for the Lord John Grey tea is here,

You might want to look at some more of their tasty items, though–they make a lot of great stuff!

The Author’s Attic is a site that makes jewelry based on literary works of  fiction—which is a pretty cool concept—and very flatteringly includes my novels as inspiration, along with those of Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, and Anya Seton.

See more of  their work here.

This delectable creation is entitled {cough} “Jamie’s Dagger”, and is the work of Donna Milne of NOLA.  Made from eclair (e-CLAIRE, geddit?) dough, tastefully drizzled with chocolate and powdered sugar, and presented with ripe Fraser strawberries.

And I just came across this very interesting contribution on my YouTube Channel:  It’s the “Outlander Series Overture,” composed by MyMerryMelodies, a literary fan who composes great music inspired by his/her favorite books.  Really like it!
