As some of you may may be aware, the Compuserve Books and Writers Community will be shutting down on Friday, December 15. This online forum, in its various incarnations, has been Diana Gabaldon's main online hangout for more than thirty years. I've been hanging out there on a daily basis since 2007, managing the discussions (aka "herding the bumblebees") in Diana's section of the forum.
We have a thriving and very active online community there, and while we were initially stunned and devastated by the news of the forum's closing, the forum staff immediately began looking for a new online home. We've been working hard over the past month to get everything ready.
I'm delighted to announce the opening of TheLitForum.com! The forum software has changed, but the structure and purpose of the forum itself is basically the same as it was before. TheLitForum.com is a community of readers, writers, book-lovers, and fans of All Things OUTLANDER.
And speaking of OUTLANDER: Yes, in case you're wondering, Diana Gabaldon will be posting there, participating in discussions and answering questions, just as she always has.
Please come and check out the new forum at https://thelitforum.com. You'll need to register in order to read or post on the forum, but it's free. Keep in mind that the username you choose when you sign up will be the name that appears beside your posts on the new forum.
If you have questions after you've signed up, please post on the new forum (rather than leaving a comment here), and we'll do our best to try to help.
