Written In My Own Heart's Blood is the 8th big,enormous book in the hugely popular Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. It was published in June. The first book, Outlander, was published in 1991. Here is a recommendation from the author about starting the enduring series with this first book:
If you’ve never read any of the series, I’d suggest starting here. If you’re unsure about it, open the book anywhere and read three pages; if you can put it down again, I’ll give you a dollar.
The first full episode of the new Outlander television series will be available online for free starting August 2. If you can't stop watching you will have to give the Starz Network more than a dollar!
The Outlandish Companion is an in-depth guide to the first four books in the series. It was written in 1999. You will find more information about the entire series at the author's website.
