I am one of those lucky duckies who have scored Comic Con tickets for the past handful of years. It is an exercise in serendipity and probability to grab those golden tickets!
While popular culture is the sweet spot of "The Con," it is also overflowing with treasures for a writer. After many years of being pressured by friends to read the OUTLANDER books and resisting (such a fool 'twas I), I consumed the entire series, both in print and on screen.
Imagine my delight when OUTLANDER had an awesome presence at Comic Con, including an appearance by the author of this "yes, I'm addicted" series, Diana Gabaldon.
I have learned so much as a writer by reading the OUTLANDER series. The way Diana Gabaldon weaves romance, adventure, history, and the human condition into a compelling narrative is the stuff of magic. Bravo for the casting of the series which frees the characters from the confines of the page so beautifully. What a thrill to attend the OUTLANDER panel and be treated to a sneak preview of the first episode of season 3!

It was super cool to visit Jamie's print shop on the convention floor and score some OUTLANDER swag!
Any other OUTLANDER fans out there?
