"Virgins" is done!

Diana Gabaldon announced this morning that she's finished writing "Virgins", the story about Jamie and Ian as young mercenaries that will be published in the DANGEROUS WOMEN anthology.

When I asked on Compuserve how long the story is, Diana said, "Came in at 27,523 words, all told--so it's a novella, rather than a short story (surprise, surprise...)."

I think that's about the same length as "Lord John and the Succubus", but I could be wrong.

We still have no information about a possible publication date for the anthology, but I'll post here as soon as I find out anything.  Diana keeps saying that she thinks it will be out this fall, but that's not definite yet.

Congratulations, Diana! <g>

(And yes, in case you're wondering, now that "Virgins" is done, Diana says she will go back to focusing "full-time" on WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART'S BLOOD.)

It's almost winter now and no news on the Anthology. Have I missed something? Any news?

The anthology, DANGEROUS WOMEN, that will contain Diana's "Virgins" story still does not have a release date. I hope we'll see it sometime in 2013.
