‘Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone’
There is no official release date announced as of yet for Diana Gabaldon’s ninth Outlander novel entitled Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone. On the other hand, it may be close to around the time when series 3 debuts this spring if all goes according to plan.
Gabaldon mentioned in an interview last year, “Right now I am in fact working on book nine now that I’ve got done with all of the travelling this year. I’m able to sit this month and actually write…The goal is to get book 9 to come out concurrently with the third season of the show if we get a third season of the show.”
You can catch some tidbits from the upcoming novel on Gabaldon’s website and Facebook page where she tags the tempting morsels with #dailylines.
