ECHO is out--and the party's at the BILTMORE!

Very exciting!

I'll be back later with observations on Game Day [g], but wanted to let y'all know right away that the launch party for the book is tonight _at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel_, not at the Poisoned Pen bookstore. (The Pen is organizing the event and selling books, but they can't possibly cram hundreds of people into the bookstore.)

Rosana, my webmistress, sent out an email this morning to the website subscribers, welcoming them to the party, but mistakenly ended it with "...at the Poisoned Pen." I'm sure she'll be sending out a quick PS shortly [g], but wanted to put in an early word here, since I don't know when she'll get my email about it.

Hope to see many of you in person, tonight and on the road--and I hope ALL of you will enjoy the new book! Thanks for buying it. [smile]

  1. If I could hop on a plane from Canada right now I would!! But I'll have to settle for my local Chapters instead, and a quiet corner in my house later to dive into Echo!!!!! Have a WONDERFUL time, and I'll see you at your signing in Calgary at Wordfest! WOOT!

  2. Unfortunately (for me), you won't be coming here (Ireland) and though I'll be in New York next month my timing/location Stateside is all wrong. But first things first when I get off the plane in NYC: find bookshop, buy Echo. Can't wait:)

  4. Diana,

    If you want to reach a wide audience with this information right away, you may want to add it as a status on your Facebook page. All of the people who have signed up to be fans will immediately see the message in their news feed.

    I came very close to buying a plane ticket from Boston to meet you tonight, but just couldn't swing it this time, though some friends of mine will be there. I do hope to meet you some day.

    Congratulations on the release of the book!

    Thanks,
    Nicole Z

  5. Congratulations! My copy is sitting on the dining room table, though I have only been able to read the first couple of pages, since a little someone has refused to nap (today of *all* days!)

    I am keeping my fingers crossed to see you tomorrow night at the Tattered Cover in Denver!

  6. Somehow the bookstore in my city put Echo in the Bone out on Sept. 21. I go my hands on it at noon and I'm reading and loving it. Thank you so much!

  7. Hooray! I need to get my rear end to the bookstore!

    Congrats on another completed and published project...and thank you!

  8. Whoo HOOOO!! Congratulations! Have a glass of champers for me.

    See you at the SiWC

  9. I sure wish I could be there, but alas I am stuck in Wisconsin working and taking care of two small boys! :-) I received an email yesterday that my pre-ordered copy of the book is in the mail. I can't WAIT until it arrives!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yipee! I can't wait :o) My friends and I think the bookstores need to open before 10 a.m.

  12. I have it and already love it-- can't wait to read more.

  13. Have a fantastic release day! I won't get to see my copy until tomorrow and I gotta tell ya, I'm savouring the anticipation. ;)

    Congratulations on another (sure to be) spectacular book and "well done" in advance!

  14. Congratulations! Shame this one is not a Munich release, but maybe London next time :-) Hope it is every bit as successful for you as the past. Your hard work is an inspiration!

  15. Is it weird that I'm nervous to read it?! I'm dealing with the sick feeling that the series may end! I don't know if I can handle that! LOL! But then again it is an addiction that needs to be fed! Going to get mine tonight! Congrats on the release date! Woot!

    ReplyDelete
  16. ooooo! It's so hard to wait to buy this, but I'm sticking to my original plan. Can't wait to start reading in a few weeks!!! Congratulations on the release and have a wonderful party!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I am so excited! Thanks to your wonderful publishers I won't have to wait until January. So now I start stalking the postman!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh my, thank you so much for all the hard Mrs. Gabaldon. I can not tell you how much I love the series. I honestly went to the bookstore today just for the book, lol. I can't wait to get finished reading the others (for the sixth time at least) so that I can be up to date to read this one. Thanks again.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hey enjoy the party! You deserve it!! I picked up my copy of Echo this morning in Mountain View, CA, and I look forward to seeing you there in a couple of weeks. Thank you again for writing so well and for traveling so much to meet and greet!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Happy Echo day! Mine is pre-ordered from Amazon and was shipped today! Can't wait to get it!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I also got a copy a day early--my bookstore called yesterday and said my copy was ready to pick up, and I wasn't inclined to inquire as to why--and I dove into it right away. I had to change my dinner plans to accomodate this very pleasant surprise...oh well, leftovers it is!

    Congrats, Diana, the pages have me hooked!

    ReplyDelete
  22. PS: I just wanted to tell you that your "acknowledgements" section and I find them THE most entertaining! I have laughed out many times over the years!

    ReplyDelete
  23. "Echo in the Bone" feels nice and substantial in my hands, and I am so looking forward to delving into it tonight.
    I am lucky as this year I get to see you in Calgary at Word fest. It will require an early rise and a long drive, but a great opportuntiy to thank you in person for all your hard graph on our behalf!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Good luck for Game Day! Bought my copy this morning. I'm loving it so far! Thank you.

  25. Congratulations on Echo's release, Diana! I'm a recent convert to the series so have lots of catching up to do!

  26. I am so excited about this latest edition! I am rereading all the previous ones to get ready!!! I need to HURRY! I am only on Drums of Autum.
    Hope you come to the Panhandle of Florida area...(Pensacola, HINT HINT!)

  27. PS- my best friend graduates CRNA (nurse anesthesia) school NEXT August. I got her a book, but she is making me keep it at my house until she graduates b/c she is afraid she will read it. When I got her started on the series she didn't sleep for about two days.

    You just can't put these down! You just get so nervous something is going on without you..you just have to know!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I've had my copy on order for weeks now, but the book shop says "the computer says it was released yesterday, but we don't have it. Maybe by the end of the week?"

    I'm very jealous of all the people that are reading it already!

  29. Impatiently awaiting the Swedish translation. Not due till June the publisher says... *sigh*

    But I am looking forward to celebrating Midsummer with Claire & Jamie... ;)

  30. Dear Nicole--

    I haven't had anything _like_ time to figure out how to do anything intelligent with Facebook yet, I'm afraid. [g]

    But if you're in Boston, hop on the train and come down to DC for the signing on the 29th at Bailey's Crossroads, VA! Probably cheaper than flying to Phoenix. [g]

    ReplyDelete
  31. Dear Angela--

    Well, you could just ask me, you know. [g] No, this isn't the last book; I only got as far as 1778, and I do need to get all the way through the American Revolution, so there will certainly be at least _one_ more book!

  33. I already have it in South Korea, and have the first few chapters read! VERY excited! I just got my my 23 year-old sister hooked on the series--I love passing it along. :) She keeps saying, "Edward and Bella got nothing on Jamie and Claire!!" ...my sentiments exactly ;) Living abroad,the series is my go-to comfort reading. Thank you SO much for keeping me entertained all these years. Every time I re-read the series, I'm swept away again. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm 150 pages in and lovin' it! Thanks again for a wonderful story.... I'd have stayed up all night, but I was already nodding and almost dropped the book!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'll see you Saturday!!! I'm so excited. Love these books.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Congratulations Diana! Now you get to travel all over the place and we lucky fans get to meet up with you. Can't wait, see you in Mountain View.

    BTW, my co-workers were so glad when yesterday was over because I was useless all day waiting to get home and start reading. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Good luck on your exhausting schedule!! I really don't know how you do it, it sounds absolutely grueling! I'm excited about some of the things you mentioned in your facebook chat yesterday! A Master Raymond book!! That is awesome, he is one of the characters that I definitely would love to see a book about! But something struck me, and since I couldn't participate in the chat (I was taking my 2 toddlers to a movie, Cloudy with a chance of meatballs, I highly recommend it!) I was wondering if I could ask you a question?

    You have mentioned before possible books about Ellen and Black Brian (Jamie's parents), Roger's parents, Master Raymond, and the already published Lord John series. You also mentioned that you are going to do a modern mystery novel, but it seems to me, the (REALLY) humble observer, that you mostly stick to the characters that were born out of Outlander.

    Do you find it hard, once you have created a character for a supporting role, to leave their story untold? Do they come alive and start speaking to you until you feel like you will burst if you don't get it out? Or is it, a lot like us, that you have fallen in love with the characters and have a hard time letting them go?

    Thank you for your consideration! I hope you have time to see some sights during this tour, if you catch your breath long enough!! Thank you for being so accessible to us normal folk!

  38. I was so disappointed that B & N sent me an email that my preordered audiobook (Davina Porter's narration I hope!) is on backorder for 30 days! I was so hoping to start it this week. But, you know, I will continue to savor the anticipation until it gets here. Thank you, dear DG, for what you do. And the best of all luck with AEITB.

  40. I am picking my copy up tonight that I preordered from Chapters and I am so excited to start since I finished the last of the series at the beginning of the summer and I have missed having Claire and Jamie in my life! My 8 year old stepson is always interested in what I am reading and is very aware of the upcoming novel (as I have been doing the countdown since June)he wants to know how Claire and Jamie are doing so I have to get reading! I will see you in Ottawa on October 14th!

    ReplyDelete
  41. FINISHED IT!!!! I cannot BELIEVE the cliffhangers you left you naughty author! LOL The last 100 pages or so felt a bit rushed, but maybe it was ME rushing thru! I will definitely do an immediate reread now so as to absorb it all more completely. NOW HURRY UP DIANA WITH THE NEXT ONE ;) LOL xoxo melzie

    ReplyDelete
  42. Diana, it was a pleasure meeting you last night! Thank you for your time and taking care of everyone there. I'm guessing there were a few thousand that showed up. AND, last but not least my manners escaped my last night. You gave me a compliment and I failed to thank you. So, THANK YOU!

  43. listening to the unabridged tapes for the 3rd time!!! in preperation... can't wait!!

  44. I still have not received mine (groan amazon) But you have me very curious about the "I didn't see that one coming" moment, trying to figure out what could it possible be.. I will have to keep you posted...lol

  45. Got my copy yesterday but for some reason i keep taking breaks while reading it...i do not want it to end and then have to wait another 3 years for the next adventure.
    Sigh...so bittersweet!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I just finished the book...it was amazing! I'm a bit sad to be leaving Jamie, Clair, Ian, Rachel, Brianna, and Roger...you simply must be writing another book...there are so many cliff hangers!!! I will wait a few months and read all 7 again! Thank you so much for this book! I wasn't expecting another...now I expect at least one more! lol

  47. VERY UPSET- Initially told in NZ the Echo will be released today (24 Sept) but when I turned up was told that it won't be out till 28 Sept!!! sorely disappointed :( have to wait another 4days...

  48. Dear Diana,
    The professor for my Africa Discovering Europe class had the nerve to schedule our library research for Tuesday night 5-8!!! It was horrible. I just sat and stared at the clock, imagining what was going on at the party. Lets just say my teacher kept getting the evil eye from me. Hopefully I will be at your event at Changing Hands in Tempe. Hope the party was hoppin.

  50. Several book stores in Calgary were already sold out yesterday!! I was feeling smug because my sister scooped me a copy at a store she found. I am looking forward to immersing myself in more stories and adventures of Claire, Jaime, Roger and Brianna, and other family and friends....
    You are an awesome author, Diana. Many thanks for this exciting adventure!!

  52. Wish I had a copy - even with the offer to UK residents for a free trade copy it is going to be DAYS before I get one - and some of you have read it already!

    Oh well, back to the ironing and re-listening to a Breath of Snow and Ashes - at least it makes the ironing bearable!

  53. Diana,

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. I haven't even opened the book yet because I am relishing the anticipation. I want this moment to last as long as it can. The beginning. Thank you!

  54. I'm so excited about the newest Outlander book being out! I've been sitting at the hospital with my father for the last week and a half, and last night my hubby drove up and took me out for sushi and then to Barnes & Noble so I could get my copy. I've already started it and love it so far!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Dear Diana,

    Very nicely done. I'm a few chapters into Echo & have already had a lightbulb moment. Whether I'm on the right track remains to be seen. :D

    Well played. My hat goes off to you.

  56. Really enjoyed our trip from Chicago to be at the Party! My husband blushed a bit from the excerpt. Really admire your sense of humor and graciousness in the face of the hundreds of us waiting for your personalization. Your poor hand!

  57. I happened to be in Denver the other day (was visiting from another state) and was unable to make your book signing at the Tattered Cover. I was so hoping to be there to thank you. Hope it was a great signing!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I was at Barnes and Noble when they opened the doors on Tuesday morning. I had preordered my copy and nearly caused the woman at the counter bodily injury when she told me I should come back the next day to get it. Suffice it to say I left with my copy in hand, lol. I basically havent done anything but read for the past 3 days. I just read the last sentence a half an hour ago and am sitting here in a bit of a stupor. I am actually kicking myself for being so eager, knowing how long I will have to wait for the next installment!

    I thank you for these books and these characters. I was born about 200 miles from Culloden, my family are Protestant lowlanders, lol. You have encouraged me to learn the history not only of the country of my birth but also of the United States where I now reside. The only word I can use to describe my new found interest is obsession. I dont know that my family would thank you considering they have been eating take out all week. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Very much enjoyed Echo! Thank you! Would love to hear Jamie's opinion on Voltaire's Candide since you had them dining together in Paris.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Diana it was so wonderful to listen to you speak and "read" from your new book. We were all giggling like girls at the particular passage. :) Many thanks! We hope you'll come back to Lexington really soon.

  61. Just to say that I am delighted that my promised UK paperback arrived this morning! I have a long train trip to Scotland later in the week so will save it for then. I shall be staying with another Outlander fan who will be "gripped off" that I have a copy of the new book before her.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I came to your book signing event at Davis Kidd bookstore in Nashville on Thursday evening. I very much enjoyed hearing your story and I hope you will return to Nashville when the next book is published. I share your books with everyone. My mom, dad, grandfather, sister, mother-in-law, and other friends have all read the Outlander series...some of us more than once. We love Jamie and Claire. Thank you for giving us these characters to "live with" in our imaginations.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Diana, thank you for the wonderful books, I have been hooked since I discovered Outlander in my High School library in 1992...and I've been through the painful process of waiting for each additional installment ever since. I do however re-read at least once a year...and start thinking in a Scottish accent after submersing myself in them for the week it takes me to read them. :)

    They are marvelous books and I may come out and see you in Ottawa when you are here.

    I sure hope that #8 is going to come sooner than the others, as I was literally surprised Echo ended when it did. Well, everyone hasn't finished it yet, so that's all I'll say.

    Great books. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I just finished reading Echo in the Bone and I do hope - PLEASE - that it won't take another four years until the next book. I really need to find out what happens to all those hanging storylines! See you here in Halifax where I shall pump you for information

    ReplyDelete
  65. Love, Love, Love these books. I've read them 3 times since being introduced to them 4 years ago. I think I really am addicted to Jamie and Claire and their romance! I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow and Echo is already packed. My best wishes Diana for contniued success! Clare

    ReplyDelete
  66. Ach! Wonderful book, Echo. Loved every page of it, but the cliffhangers will be the end of me. Please, please, please stop EVERYTHING else you are writing and concentrate on #8. Publication in 2010 (okay, maybe 2011 at the latest!) would be really peachy.
    From your most devoted fan--

  69. 58 pages in, if I hadn't had plans this weekend it would of been finished. LOVING IT. I love all of the Outlander books. You are one amazing author. Hopefully we'll see you in Boston one of these days. Enjoy the tour.

  71. Looking forward to meeting you at Borders in VA tomorrow! Although I couldn't wait til then to begin your latest. I'm mid-way through and I must say captivating! Completely enjoying--in fact, having a really hard time balancing my other books...hummm lets see Echo in the Bone or Jesuit Relations...Ft. Pontchartrain at Detroit or Echo in the Bone...LOL! Needless to say research is falling by the wayside! Tomorrow! meyre7@comcast.net

  72. Dear Diana,

    I am LOVING this book! I am enjoying the complexity and pace of the four storylines but am trying to pace myself and savour every line.

    I wanted to ask you as the complexity increases does it ever get confusing for you? I can only imagine that holding both the historical and the fictional threads together has to boogle the mind once in a while.

    Also, I want to say a very large thank you for saying there is at least one more book (this made me smile.) Your loyal fans know that 'at least' carries a lot of weight. The end is not in sight yet and I am glad!

    Happy touring,
    Jewell

    ReplyDelete
  73. OK,I've finished "Echo" and enjoyed every minute. Must say that I now know that you need to write at least one more. So many ends to keep following!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I waited a whole day before I went looking for Echo in Borders and Angus & Robertson, only to be told that it might be in the shipments due on Thursday. Might.
    I then figured, I've requested it at two or three libraries, I'll wait for it there, then buy it in paperback when it comes out in a year or so.
    Then I was at Borders again on Saturday, and found it - in trade paperback with the leafy cover (not the caltrops) - at $38.something. I flipped through it over a hot chocolate and put it back on the shelf.
    Then I saw it in the latest Kmart catalogue for just $19.70 and my will is wavering. I actually need another bookcase, I've run out of room in my current ones. But is Echo the final straw that will break that particular camel's back???

  78. Read somewhere on this blog that your husband, Doug, enjoys Beenie Weenies. We ate a variation of this growing up called a Baked Bean Sandwich. It consists of several slices of plain sandwich bread face up on a cookie sheet, beans (I use Bush's Vegetarian, but whatever) placed on top of the bread with a slotted spoon. Add sliced hot dogs and pepper to taste. Top it off with good ol' processed American (or whatever) and bake (open-faced) in the oven until heated and cheese just begins to brown. This is depression era cooking passed down through my family.

  79. I finished Echo last night (9/29)! I savored it, like a fine wine, and it was worth it! Oh my goodness!!! I can't wait for #8!!!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Aaah!!! I ordered my signed copy from The Poisened Pen two weeks ago, I rush home after work every day and rip open the mailbox hoping it's arrived... No luck yet.
    I too may begin stalking the postman...

    ReplyDelete
  81. I went and bought the book at 10 AM the day it came out. I was on page 6, reading on my way to the food court for breakfast, when a complete stranger shouted out, "Excuse me!" and hurried over.
    "Yes?"
    "Is that... is that?" She pointed frantically at the cover.
    I grinned."The new Diana Gabaldon book?"
    "YES!"
    "It just came out today."
    "Oh my goodness, where did you get it?"
    "Coles."
    She looked around, bewildered, as if expecting the bookstore had creeped up on her in the last ten seconds. "Where...?"
    I pointed behind me, laughing. "That way!"
    She grabbed my arm and said, "THANK YOU!!!" excitedly before running off. I just about grinned my face off for the next half hour. So from myself and from the other excited fan, thanks again! I can't believe I have another three or four years to wait for the next one!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Finished Echo last night and regaled a very puzzled husband with my wails about a) cliff hangers and b) having to wait until the next book. LOL!

    OMGoodness...I'm on tenterhooks about it all. My fingernails won't last the distance! So afraid for wee Jem.

    THANK YOU! I think. *grin* ;)

  86. Dear Heather--

    Well, people just kind of come and talk to me...but they talk much more easily if I'm paying attention to them. [g] And since my mind is so much focused on the milieu of the OUTLANDER books, it's easier for someone from that to catch my attention, as it were. Others _do_ talk to me, though--it's just a matter of time, as to when I can stop and listen intently to them.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Deb--

    The ECHO unabridged recording should be available within the next two weeks! Davina just finished making it last week (I only finished _writing_ the book about six weeks ago, which made it difficult for the Recorded Books people, I'm afraid). Can't wait to listen to it myself!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Dear Kathy--

    I know the difference between Thee and Thou. [g] Please read the Author's Note (in the back) regarding Quaker Plain Speech, ca. 1770. I can give you the scholarly references for that, if you like.

    ReplyDelete
  89. am delighted to hear that the divine Davina is again narrating the unabridged book - and I did expect that; she is a wonderful actress and so perfect for your books. In fact, when I've heard her narrate other books, I've had to stop and say wait, wait that's Claire, not Isobel Dalhousie (or whomever the character is) and readjust my perspective to the new character.
    On another subject, I get so angry at the -- albeit few here on this site -- people who feel compelled to leave hurtful, arrogant, and just plain mean comments for you. If you're so upset by the direction an author takes with their own character, just don't read the book, or future books! I think it's that simple. But to leave a really mean or otherwise negative comment on a public site is just plain stupid. Well, I guess I figured out right there why they do it; they're just plain stupid! Poor things. Take a breath, Diana, pack some clean undies, and go out into the book-tour world and knock 'em dead. I met you at the tea in Flagstaff, and I know your incredibly open, friendly, and welcoming personality just runs right over those negativers. All the best!

  91. just finished Echo today. tried to savor but about 1/2 way, began devouring. at some point today i think my husband became frustrated but i'm unsure and now that i've reached the finale, i will check in with him.

    i am not looking forward to the wait for numero 8. how does everyone manage? i read Outlander in Feb of this year and was able to begin a new book in the series as soon as i'd finished the previous.

    at this point, i think of Jamie & Claire as good friends and fully expect to miss them. have downloaded the audio versions of the books on audible to help with the pangs.

    thank you, Diana, for this spectacular thrill ride of reading ... i think {wink!}

  92. I just finished Echo and absolutely loved it! I was sad it was over and have decided to go back to the beginning. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Loved it!!! I am just sorry there will not be a book before 3 years, but you enjoy your much earned and needed break. I just talked my husband into reading the series. There is just enough blood and violence in them for him to enjoy.

  94. Wish you were coming to a city near me, or that I had the means to go to one that you are already going to, but... Just finished An Echo in the Bone and Oh, my. Laughing, crying, screaming (which freaked out my 6 year old little man). You never dissappoint.
