Birthday party on Compuserve!

You're all invited to come and join in the BIG November Birthday Celebration in Diana Gabaldon's section of the Compuserve Books and Writers Community.

A group of us on the forum with November birthdays (mine is on the 23rd) got together several weeks ago to organize this virtual birthday party.  Please feel free to stop by and join the fun!  Start here and be sure to look at all the attachments, especially the first one, Birthday_Party.rtf, that tells the story.  I personally think it's hilarious.

(Note to those of you who don't hang out on Compuserve:  a "big" is forum slang for a request to Diana for an excerpt. <g>) 

Diana was thrilled with this, and we're delighted to see that she has posted not one but TWO new excerpts in response!  One from WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART'S BLOOD (which she calls "Moby" for short), and the other from THE SCOTTISH PRISONER.  Just click on the attachments at the bottom of Diana's message to read the excerpts.

It's fine to talk about either of those excerpts here, if you want to.  But do feel free to post on Compuserve and tell Diana (or the birthday party organizers) what you think.

Here's the present that the others gave to me, a bookplate.  I love it!



Many thanks to the rest of our November Birthday Bigging Group, especially Sandy and Leslie, who organized the whole thing, and Deniz, who put the story together.  Hope you all enjoy it!
