For those of you who are Outlander fans, uber-author Diana Gabaldon just signed her contract for the ninth–and final–book in the series! Apparently, her agent waited about a year to finalize the book deal in order to wage more bargaining power now that the television series based on the books has become so popular. For this ninth book, it is suggested she made a $6million-dollar deal…about double that of the eighth book in the series.
Will she decide that TEN is the magic number in order to secure another big publishing deal? Gabaldon says no. According to an interview she made in 2012, there were always supposed to be nine. Considering the time factor between books, this is probably more than most of her fans can handle.
Now we must wait to hear what the new book will be called……..
