I just discovered that "Virgins" (Diana Gabaldon's story about Jamie and Ian as young mercenaries in France in 1740, before Jamie met Claire) will FINALLY be published as a standalone e-book on April 8, 2016! (That's the day before the OUTLANDER Season 2 premiere on STARZ.)
I'm really glad to see this. We've been waiting a long time! ("Virgins" was originally published in the DANGEROUS WOMEN anthology in 2013.)
Like Diana Gabaldon's other standalone e-books ("A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows", "The Space Between", etc.), "Virgins" will be available for $1.99.
Please note, I don't know if the standalone e-book will be available outside the US and Canada.
I hope they'll release the audio version of this story as a standalone as well. I've heard wonderful things about Allan Scott-Douglas's narration of "Virgins" (which is part of the audiobook of the DANGEROUS WOMEN anthology, where this story originally appeared) but I've never listened to it.
For more information about "Virgins", see my "Virgins" FAQ page.
