Big News from Diana!
She said she....signed the contract to the TV series last night, they'll probably start filming in September this year (no, she hasn't any idea who will be cast <g>) and the pilot will probably air in spring 2014.WOW! Just...wow! If you want to let Diana know what you think about this news, there's a thread on Compuserve here. (For those of you who don't know, what Diana is referring to is an OUTLANDER TV series on the STARZ cable channel.)
According to this site, there will be a total of 16 episodes.
Nicole also shared Diana's brief update on WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART'S BLOOD:
Diana said she'll finish writing MOBY this year (probably around September) and chances are good that it will hit the shelves in December.That's excellent news! So the December 10 publication date showing on Amazon and elsewhere might be the real date after all! <vbg>

[UPDATE 6/2/2013 9:06 am: Diana posted the following comment on her FB page this morning:
All I've been told is that they do plan 16 episodes (spread over two seasons), they _hope_ to start filming around September, and (_if_ everything goes well with the production), it _might_ air in the spring. Good luck to 'em!I have no additional information, but if I hear anything more about the TV series, I will certainly post it here!
