Mass Effect: Ascension is the follow up novel to Mass Effect: Revelation. Like the previous book, it’s also a prequel to the next game in the series. One thing I like about Drew Karpyshyn’s Mass Effect novels is that they don’t star or even feature Commander Shepard, the main character of the games. In Ascension, the main characters are a Cerberus agent, a traitorous quarian, and a human biotics scientist. What unfolds is another great sci-fi story from Karphyshyn.

For those who would like to skip to just the Q&A portion of the Star Wars Books’ Christie Golden Live Chat, we’ve cleaned up the following transcript for your viewing pleasure! (Note all spoilers have been posted at the bottom of the Q&A with a prominent SPOILER heading to warn readers)

Q: Welcome, Christie! I loved Ascension! Here’s my question – these Star Wars books come out pretty fast, and you’ve worked on media tie-ins before. What’s your typical writing/development process? Do you outline? How many drafts do you usually do? How do you develop plot, etc.?

 

A: It depends…sometimes I am given outlines, sometimes I work them up myself. Generally I do a first draft, go over it before I send it in, and then put in any changes the publisher or IP holder wants. Sometimes things are so tight my first draft is really what hits shelves…fortunately this year I celebrate 40 books and 20 years in the business!
