Examiner Interview with Paul S. Kemp

Examiner.com posted an interview with author Paul S. Kemp discussing writing and his upcoming books. While Paul didn’t divulge any new details on his upcoming hardcover Star Wars duology, he did provide some ideas on what to expect in The Godborn.

“The Godborn” will take all of the story threads from The Erevis Cale Trilogy and The Twilight War and bring them to an explosive conclusion. One needn’t have read those previous trilogies to appreciate “The Godborn,” but those who have will possibly have a bit deeper of an experience with the story.

“The Godborn” will feature the breakneck action and (I hope) the nuanced characterization I’m know for, but thematically it’s very much the story (from lots of different angles) of the price that faith requires of believers, and, in the end, whether or not those believers are willing to pay that price.

“The Godborn” has a fairly sizeable cast, and some of the main characters (Princes Rivalen and Brennus of Shade, Drasek Riven) have featured prominently in my earlier Cale stories, while some of the main characters (Vasen Cale, son of Erevis Cale) are new.

FANgirl Blog Interviews with Troy Denning, Part Two

FANgirl Blog has posted part two of their interview with Star Wars author Troy Denning. Troy has some priceless comments about killing characters.

I was reading through the things that happen in the first book, which later became Vector Prime. When I read the part where Chewbacca dies, I think I phoned my friend Bob Salvatore and said, “Bob! I just read you’re killing Chewbacca!” He kind of chuckled and said, “Yeah. And wait until you see what you’re doing.” Then I was thinking, “Oh my God!”…

Skip ahead several years to Legacy of the Force. We were sitting around in the brainstorming session. We already knew who was writing the books just because of the way schedules worked out, and we’re planning all the plot lines. When we get to the end of book nine, somebody said, “Jacen dies,” and I nodded, “Yeah, okay. Jacen dies, that makes sense.” Then all of a sudden I realize that I’m writing that! I looked up and I said, “Wait a minute! So, I’m going to kill two Solo kids?” Everyone else in the room said, “Yeah.” So I said, “Uh-uh! I don’t want to do that!” We had a bit of discussion about alternatives but then we realized that it had to be done, and that I was the one who had to do it.

You can read the full interview here. If you missed part one, you can catch it here.
