I thought it would be interesting to compare this month's results with the poll I ran in June 2013 on the same topic. Click on the image for a bigger view.



The first time I ran this poll, we knew very little about the TV series other than the fact that it would be 16 episodes on STARZ, and many fans were understandably wary. What a difference eight months makes!  (For more about the OUTLANDER TV series, see my FAQ page here.)

Please take a moment to vote in the March poll, which is all about pre-ordering WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART'S BLOOD.  If you are viewing this site on a mobile device, go here to see the poll.
