SCOTTISH PRISONER on the NYT Bestseller List!



I just saw this announcement on Diana Gabaldon's Facebook page:
NEWS!

THANK YOU! Thanks to all of you who've bought and been enjoying THE SCOTTISH PRISONER, I've just been told that the book debuts at #8 on the New York Times Bestseller List!!!

Moran Taing! (that's Gaelic for "Thank You"!)
When I commented on this on Compuserve, Diana said,
I'm delighted, and the publishing people are beside themselves. <g>  They also told me that the first print run has sold out and the book's already gone back to press.  Also excellent news!
This is fantastic news!!  Congratulations to Diana, I think it's well-deserved, and I'm thrilled for her that the book is doing so well! <vbg>

If you want to offer your congratulations to Diana, you can post on Compuserve here, or on Facebook here.

UPDATE 12/9/2011 3:00 pm:  See Diana's latest blog post for her reaction, plus information on ordering autographed copies of SP in time for Christmas.

I was at Powell's Books this last weekend and they were totally sold out of The Scottish Prisoner! I asked the lady when they would be getting more in....and she didn't know, but that it was going out as soon as it was coming in. I looked for it at a smaller store in my hometown and it too was sold out....I need to read the other Lord John books so I can be caught up first though...Im hosting the Outlander Reading Challenge again this year and I'm thinking about having it include the Lord John books as well. I see that The Scottish Prisoner also has a little preview for the next Outlander book....I am DYING for the next one to come out! :) Cheers!
