If you were lucky enough to have a book signing with Tara Bennet and Diana Gabaldon at Poison Pen Press, you would have got advance copies of this last month. If you were even more lucky at NYCC 2019, there were copies of the book and a panel by the two authors. And some book signings and photo sessions.
The Making of Outlander Series first came out two years ago covering seasons 1 and 2. Tara Bennet is an author and co-authhor of several books on filming series and films: Showrunners: The Art of Running a TV Show, The Art of Ice Age, as well as editor at SFX Magazine, writer for Sci Fi Magazine, and a West Coast Correspondent for SyFy Channel, Wire. Her treatment of the first book in the series has left many of us starving for more. Hopefully this new edition will help us get through the next few months of Droughtlander.
The heavy coffee table book is a break down of each episode, BTS pictures, interviews with actors, and delving into the behind the scenes art departments and camera crews. As if you cannot get enough of Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe splashed on all the entertainment and fashion magazines, having a large hard bound glossy book with all your favorite characters, including new villains is just the answer to help you get through the parched post productions season.
Available through all book outlets and hopefully your local stores Tuesday, October 15, 2019.
