Are you ready for Outlander, the TV series?

Highlander Avenged by Laurin Wittig bookcover

BIG THANKS for the great launch of Highlander Avenged in June!

I certainly am! Between Outlander and the new reality show Quest, I’m in TV heaven this month. I’m also reading (yes, reading) the first book in the Game of Thrones series– more medieval yumminess, even if it is set in a mythical world.

Are you enjoying Scottish romance brought to a TV near you? I think a lot of us are going to be a bit obsessed with Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander, and I hope that’s going to mean a lot of people are looking for more Scottish romances to read (before, after, or during their binge reading of the Outlander series!).

Because I’m a helpful sort of person, I’m starting a series of blog posts featuring Scottish romances to aide and abet your need to read. I’m calling the series, “Help! I need my Highlander fix!” The posts start Friday, August 8th, and will run indefinitely.

If you have a favorite Scottish read, please let me know via this form. If you write Scottish romances and would like me to feature your book(s) let me know via the same form.

Now, what’s up for me this month? Writing, writing, writing (and watching some TV, of course)! I’m getting to the end of Highlander Redeemed, Scotia MacAlpin’s story, which is also the final book in my Guardians of the Targe trilogy. I have had so much fun writing Scotia and watching her, under Duncan’s ever vigilant attention, turn into the woman she was always meant to be. I can’t wait to share their story with all of you!

For my German fans, thanks for all the wonderful support for Die Heilerin von Lamont (that’s the German title for The Devil of Kilmartin)! Coming in September, the German translation of Highlander Betrayed! Stay tuned for a title and cover reveal as soon as I have either/both!
