Ordering A TRAIL OF FIRE



Wondering where you can find Diana Gabaldon's upcoming story collection, A TRAIL OF FIRE?  As you may have heard, this book is only being published in the UK, Australia, and New Zealand for now, due to rights issues.  So how can readers in the US, Canada, and other countries get their hands on the book?  Here are a couple of suggestions:

If you don't care whether your copy of A TRAIL OF FIRE is signed or not, you can order from amazon.co.uk.

If you would like a signed copy of A TRAIL OF FIRE, you can order it from the Poisoned Pen bookstore here, or call them at 1-888-560-9919.

I called the Poisoned Pen yesterday to place the order for the winners of the OUTLANDER Photo Contest, and I asked when they expect to be able to ship out signed copies of A TRAIL OF FIRE.  The man I spoke to, Patrick, said that Diana will be signing all the pre-orders on October 23, the day of the launch party for A TRAIL OF FIRE, and they will be shipped out as soon as possible after that.  ("We'll be working around the clock" is what he told me.)

Hi Karen,

Awesome blog!

I am confused though. You say the UK/AU/NZ release date for Trail of Fire is 11th October, but the UK Book depository has 8th November? Do you know why they differ? I don't want to miss getting the book here in NZ at the earliest opportunity!

Cheers, Shelli M

Hi Shelli,

I'm glad you're enjoying my blog! I have no idea why there is a different release date on the Book Depository site. But if I were you, I'd contact your local bookshops in NZ and see if any of them will have the book. My understanding is that A TRAIL OF FIRE will be published in Australia and NZ as well as the UK, so there would be no need for you to order it from overseas. And as far as I know, the publication date is supposed to be 11 October for the hardcover of A TRAIL OF FIRE. If that turns out to be incorrect, I guess we'll find out next week!
