Hello, fantastic Novel2Screeners! Rebecca here. I know I haven’t written much for a while, but I’ve been deeply immersed in Diana Gabaldon’s “Drums of Autumn,” the fourth book in her “Outlander” series, which I will begin blogging about next month (prior to the fourth season of the show on Starz this fall).
