Outlander Season 2 Premiere Sweepstakes

And the contests keep rolling in . . .

Don’t bite *my* head off, but this sweepstakes is only eligible to those living in the continental United States. Sorry to everyone not qualified to enter. :o(


This time StarzPeople and Entertainment Weekly are sponsoring the big prize. Click on the Black Jack poster above to enter for a chance to win:

– A trip for two to the Season 2 Premiere of Outlander in 2016. The winner(s) will join the cast and crew at the red carpet event. Airfare and hotel accommodations for a 4-day/3-night stay are included, and to get you ready for the big event – you’ll be given hair and makeup treatment by the GLAMSQUAD. Sounds like all you’ll need is the dress!

Here’s the cherry: Pending date of travel and production availability, a meet and greet with Outlander cast will be provided. This is contingent upon production’s availability and the time of travel and pending there is a second season. [I’m assuming that last part did not get edited from the sweepstakes rules upon the announcement of S2.]

Ten first place prizes will also be awarded, which include:

– A copy of The Outlandish Companion by Diana Gabaldon

– An Outlander Season I/Part I DVD set

– And a copy of the Outlander Original Soundtrack by Bear McCreary

Outlander is Back!

Hmm . . . I can’t imagine you don’t all know that Outlander is back on April 4th in the United States and April 5th in Canada. The UK is less than a week away from their own premiere on AmazonUK. Rah! Rah! Hoo Rah!

Things have been heating up around the twitterverse, and I can’t wait to get back into the full swing of Outlander blogging. To start things off, I thought I’d post the tweets from today’s Q&A with Diana GabaldonBarnes&Noble hosted the twitter chat with the Outlander author, so a big thank you to them for setting it up!

Did I schooch my laptop in front of my workstation this morning to participate? Maybe . . . If you missed it, I gathered them all in one place for your reading pleasure. Enjoy!

Outlander: The Wedding

For Valentine’s Day, I couldn’t think of a more romantic way to spend it than with Jamie and Claire on their wedding night. I didn’t think you’d all mind if I skipped ahead a few episodes to create a comic book of the popular episode: THE WEDDING.

This particular episode is perhaps the most “analyzed” (and probably watched) of the first half of the season, so I’ll keep this short and sweet . . .

Happy Valentine’s Day, Outlandears!

I hope you all enjoy this walk down memory lane – or rather – the aisle.
