It's Going to be a Very Long Wait

I finished reading Echo in the Bone (the 7th book of the Outlander series) a couple of weeks ago and I am already really sad. The series is not done, which is good, as I am not ready to stop reading about Jaime & Claire. But, I am sad because it will be a couple of years till Gabaldon is done writing the next one.
According to a recent blog post of hers, it generally takes her at least 2 1/2 years to write each book! Which if you actually think about it and how long they are (normally 800 to 900 pages, hardback) and how she tries to be historically accurate, then than 2 1/2 years is not very long.
I started the series last August and went straight from one book onto the next, no waiting. Now I get to sit and wait. I really should not complain though. I think about her readers who started the series, when the first book was published in 1991 and how long they have now been waiting. That's 19 years!
I think I may start the Lord John series by Gabaldon, which is a spin off of one of the characters in Outlander. Or I can just start reading them all over again, hehe.
