Stevo1 Diana Gabaldon is the best-selling author of the Outlander series featuring Jamie and Claire Fraser, which includes the titles "Outlander," "Dragonfly in Amber," "Voyager," and "Drums of Autumn."
dgabaldon I rather think Dougal was afraid to marry that particular Black Widow.
kiwi any suggestions my friend can't get in and she really really wants to chat ti Dianna
Stevo1 Diana's most recent book is "The Outlandish Companion:" the ultimate companion guide to her bestselling series, the book only she could write--a beautifully illustrated compendium of all things Outlandish. Welcome, Diana, to Microsoft Network's Books and Reading Community chat room.
Cameron-MacLeod i Suzanne! Is nayone esle formour little group here yet?

LadySolace Diana, not to be repetitive from the earlier Barnes and Noble Chat, but you've said that Claire takes the story and runs. Does she ever do anything that annoys or confounds YOU?
*** Talya has left #Reading_1
Ishie Brooke, please lose the caps
SuzannefromLI Claire will be close to 60 at start of the Revolution I hope its not a bit much for her
Cameron-MacLeod Hi Diana. It is a pleasure! Diana, What plans do you have after you finish the Outlandish series? Or is that too far ahead to think?
dgabaldon No, I had no idea I'd ever evven publish the first book, let alone have it be so popular. As for what people like...you name it, but the most common thing people say they like is simply the characters themselves. ga
Belle2 Is Geillis the skull found at the beginning of Voyager?
Stevo1 please wait for Diana to type "ga" before posting questions

Duchess Belle2 - yes she is.
Lavendar2 HI talya
dgabaldon No, Claire doesn't annoy me--I know _why_ she does what she does, so it's like the French say..."Tour compredre, c'est tout pardonner." (To understand everything is to forgive everything). ga
brooke2 do you ever think of writing kids books
*** LadyLeeC has joined #Reading_1
dgabaldon Yes, that's Geillis's skull at the beginning of VOYAGER. ga
Stevo1 Tell us about "The Outlandish Companion." What was it like collecting material for the book? Was writing it harder than actually writing an "Outlander" novel?

Ishie Hi Arianna
Karen___SFF hey ish- you didn't tell me she was going to be here!!! <g>

*** Henry has joined #Reading_1
^4C616479537069646572C2A9 Hi Ishi!!!
Duchess Actually, I could picture that as a great childrens series whereby the kids go through the stones to different times
dgabaldon Cameron--I have a separate series dealing with Master Raymond, that I'll do after I've finished with the OUTLANDER books. ga
Ishie Hi just got the word myself
*** tookind has joined #Reading_1

Stevo1 Tell us about "The Outlandish Companion." What was it like collecting material for the book? Was writing it harder than actually writing an "Outlander" novel?
dgabaldon I missed a few questions, I think--people jamming them in too fast. You wanted to know what about Claire, Suzanne? ga
brooke2 i dont know you at alll what kind of books to you write
*** kiwi has left #Reading_1
windsongj Diana, Do you want to go back in time?
*** LadyShannon has joined #Reading_1
SuzannefromLI Yes if being 60 at the start of the revolution would be a bit to much for her?
dgabaldon Steve--no, the COMPANION is--essentially--nonfiction, which is always lots easier to write than fiction.
* Henry leaving
dgabaldon I had a lot of the material already, as a result of answering
ladyelaine I would like to ask a question but I will wait my turn.
dgabaldon people's quesitons for years. <g> ga
brooke2 what kind of books do you write
^4C616479537069646572C2A9 I loved your first book, Outlander, Diana....so full of facts and history. Who would have known I would have flown to Scotland myself and gotten married to a Scot!! <g>
*** Henry has left #Reading_1
*** kiwi has joined #Reading_1
dgabaldon No, Suzanne--she isn't 60; more in her early to mid-50's. And no, I don't think that's too old (I'm 47 myself <g>). ga
miss_vicki2 Will we discover the identity of the skull with Claire in Drums?

Stevo1 Ok, lets do it the way Ishie says
^4C616479537069646572C2A9 How did you do your research for the first book? Books or actually visiting the country?

McCaster I love to write.
Londubh Your writing style reminds me of them and I loved them all.
Erma It is yours, Steve. :)
Stevo1 If you have a question, type a ? and we will call on you
dgabaldon LadyS--I did the first book entirely from library research--since I was writing for practice, I couldn't very well tell my husband I had to go to Scotland to do research. <g> I've been three or four times since then, thanks! ga
Ritavz ?
WordWiz okay then I won't :-)
Duchess ?
Stevo1 GA Ritaviz
Ritavz I'd like to know if we'll ever see a "non-edited" Outlander version, with all the bits that were left out because they were not essential to the plot.

^4C616479537069646572C2A9 How difficult was it breaking into the writing industry?
dgabaldon I haven't written the book yet, let alone formally decided on the title! I just thought that KING, FAREWELL seemed not the best, because people couldn't remember it. <g> Also, I quite like SONS OF LIBERTY, because it fits the book well. But we'll see
Joe_Cool hello
dgabaldon what happens when I actually write it! ga
Belle2 In the companion, the genealogies seem very ligitimate - are they purely fictional, created just for your characters or do they begin with true historical figures of those surnames - and if so, how do we tell where the historical gives way to the fictional
Stevo1 Ga ladyspider
