Looking for excerpts or #DailyLines?

Diana Gabaldon is on vacation in the UK with her husband this week, following their daughter's wedding.  She hasn't been posting #DailyLines on Facebook or Twitter, and many of you seem to be suffering withdrawal symptoms <g>, missing your daily "fix".

I just wanted to point out that Jari Backman has an extensive collection of links to all of Diana's excerpts and #DailyLines from WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART'S BLOOD, on his website.

Jari is an OUTLANDER fan from Finland, and I've known him on Compuserve for about five years.  He is the one who helped me put together the list of dates that I use for the "Notable Dates This Month" feature.  (Thanks very much for that, Jari!) 

I hope you'll take the time to explore his site.  There's a lot of useful information there for OUTLANDER fans.

Also please note, Diana has said that it's fine to post LINKS to her excerpts and #DailyLines, or email the links to your friends, but please don't copy-and-paste the excerpts onto your own site.  Thank you.

Diana will be back home in a few days.  I hope she's enjoying a restful vacation!  I'm sure that the #DailyLines will resume as soon as she's had a chance to recover from the wedding, and stay put in one place long enough to actually write something! <g>

In the meantime, I thought Jari's collection of excerpts and #DailyLines might keep some of you occupied until she gets home.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  I am an excerpt-avoider myself!  I do not read excerpts or #DailyLines from Book 8.  Please do not discuss the excerpts here on my blog.  If you want to talk about the content of any of the excerpts or #DailyLines, there's a thread on Compuserve here, and you're welcome to join in the discussion there.  Thanks.

What does mean? I see it all the time by you and Diana. Thanks.

You mean <g>? That means "grin". Diana uses it all the time on Compuserve, so I got in the habit of using it. It's the same as :-)

Thanks for the explanation. It was driving me crazy. I'm so glad you got to go to Scotland. I went in 2002 with my older sister. She had turned me on to Outlander and we really wanted to go see Scotland. It was so beautiful and the food was so good. We took 2 weeks and drove ourselves around. I would love to go back again.

Dear Karen,

So kind of you to remind Gabaldonians of the excerpts.

Diana has been so generous that the real life has indeed made the updating quite slow. But we try to keep it up on a weekly basis, though sometimes it may be a longer pause. <g>

Off to participate your great Photo Contest.

Hi Jari, and thanks for stopping by to comment! I figured this post would get your attention. :-)

Thanks very much for compiling that list of links to excerpts and #DailyLines. It's a great resource.
