Star Wars Books has posted three new drawings from the upcoming Star Wars: The Essential Reader’s Companion. While these three images aren’t finished yet, the scenes they’re depicting are pretty awesome. There are two images by Chris Trevas: one for Deceived and one for Side Trip. Artist Darren Tan also joins in with The Courtship of Princess Leia.

Author Paul S. Kemp did a Q&A on Reddit that covers not only his Star Wars books, but also his non-Star Wars books. Paul talks about the freedom he has with his writing, how he got into Star Wars, some of his favorite authors and books, and even delves into his preferred brand of scotch. One very interesting thing he mentioned was this…

I’d love to write the novel in which Grandmaster Luke Skywalker goes out in a way that suits such a great character.

This week Omnivoracious.com‘s Susan J. Morris posted a very nice interview with author Paul S. Kemp. The interview focused on anti-heroes and Kemp’s use of them in his novels. Questions and comments ranged from his Forgotten Realms work with Erevis Cale to his more recent Star Wars novel Deceived and Darth Malgus. Lots of great aspects covered including writing villains and lots of info on writing the anti-hero. You can read the article here.

In other news, Paul recently posted an excerpt from his upcoming Forgotten Realms book Godborn, the latest edition to his Erevis Cale novels. Godborn won’t be out until November next year so if you haven’t read any of the Erevis Cale novels there is still plenty of time to catch up. You can read the excerpt here.

Wrapping things up, Paul also chimed in with another great dose of humor on his website. No drunk Tweeting, but he does wax poetic about Amazon’s founder Jeff Bezos, publishing, the Kindle Fire, and some humorous references to Lord of the Rings. Read it here and don’t miss out on the fun.

And don’t forget, Kemp’s Star Wars book Riptide comes out October 25 in both paperback and digital formats.

If you grew up in the 90s, you heard voice actor Marc Thompson in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and MTV’s Daria.  Marc Thompson now narrates Star Wars audiobooks including The Old Republic: Deceived, Millennium Falcon, the Legacy of the Force series and the Fate of the Jedi series.  His next projects are Heir to the Empire: Behind the Scenes and Fate of the Jedi Ascension.  In our exclusive interview, Marc tells us what he likes in the Fate of the Jedi series and how he creates the unique voices of each Star Wars character:

I reference the movies a lot.  I’m a huge fan.  So if a Mon Calamari is on screen, I try to glean things from that. Sometimes I pick celebrities or personalities I feel embody the spirit of the character. I tried to get Carol Channing into one of the books but the director said no…:(
