Our lovely Diana Gabaldon's new book AN ECHO IN THE BONE has arrived, and debuts at #2 on the New York Times Bestseller list.
Diana talks about hearing the news from her publisher [in a conversation that also included a bottle of scotch and Dan Brown], and you can read about it here in her blog.
I love this picture of Diana. I took it many years ago at the conference, and what you can't see is, along with her Ladies of Lallybroch t-shrt, she is wearing her pyjama bottoms. It was at the end of a long day, but she still came out to join the CompuServe gang at our annual Par-Tay. She is one of the most generous writers I know -- of her time, her expertise and her knowledge, and is a huge asset to our conference every year.
She'll be at the conference (AND at the Par-Tay) again this year, and now with something to celebrate.
