Scenes from Starz series Outlander episode #113 which aired today are based on events in a short story called “Virgins” which was published in an anthology called Dangerous Women (edited by George R R Martin) in December 2013.
I am particularly fond of that novella, because once upon a time… (actually it was August 5, 2013) author Diana Gabaldon posted daily lines for “Virgins” and she dedicated them to me. #ThisOnesForShawnLBird #poetess
Whenever I read the passage, it gives me goosebumps. What an honour to receive a dedication from an internationally best selling author! If you want to read the daily line selection, it’s here: http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1rlp46l
(An added memory is that I purchased my copy of Dangerous Women from The Poisoned Pen in Phoenix that Christmas) 🙂 I like the idea of poetesses being dangerous women, though in fact, no such proof is proffered in the story, beyond Ian’s suppositions in this section. 🙂
You, too, can be an internationally best-selling writer.
You never know!
I’ll do my best! 🙂
(and hope my agent starts getting some international sales deals!) 😉
