Pre-order Written In My Own Heart's Blood

In theory this should be an amazing post but given the fact that Diana hasn't even finished writing the latest Outlander book I guess Amazon is being a little over enthusiastic with giving a release date of 10th December 2013.  If it's ready by then that's excellent but it's unlikely as it's been claimed that Amazon pull these things out of mid air!  We won't know the actual release date until it's officially announced. 

However Amazon do seem to be taking pre-orders for
Written in My Own Heart's Bloodso I for one am getting more and more excited about the prospect of getting my hands on a copy ... or more likely getting it downloaded onto my Kindle! What does strike me as great though is the artwork on the cover. It's simple and straightforward but really effective at the same time.  I love it!

Casting of Jamie Fraser is confirmed by STARZ!

At Last!!!!
There are so many of us who have been eagerly awaiting the news of exactly who will play out favorite Scots Highlander in the upcoming TV series of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander and I'm happy to say that today it's finally being announced and I couldn't be happier!!!! I had an awful feeling that the casting would go to someone who was only considered because of his fame and not because of his ability to encompass the spirit which is James Alexander Malcolm McKenzie Fraser! However looking at the Google images of this actor I can really see him being able to act like Jamie as well as being tall and what's more he's actually Scottish! So here he is ... meet the new Jamie Fraser ....  
.... oh who am I kidding ... Happy April 1st ... please don't hate me I couldn't resist!
