Author Martha Wells has posted a nice update on her upcoming Leia novel which will be part of the Rebels series. She also answers some of the big questions on fan’s minds.
Yesterday I finished a complete draft of the Star Wars Leia novel. Yay! I haven’t turned it in yet, because I want to spend the next few days reading over parts of it and poking at it and polishing a bit more before I send it in on Friday.
Questions I expect people will have and my mostly inadequate answers:
What is the title?
I don’t know yet. Usually either I think of a title mid-way through writing a book and it is the perfect title and all titles fall before it, or I can’t think of anything and finish the book and wonder what the hell I’m going to call it. This was the second one. I gave the editor several suggestions and so we’re waiting for somebody to come up with something else or decide one of those is wonderful and convince everyone else of it.
When will it be out?
I don’t know yet. Maybe at the end of the year? I’ll post it here as soon as I know.
What is it about?
Okay, I do know that one, but I’m not sure how much I should say yet. I’m also crap at describing my books so I may wait until someone who is good at it writes the little blurb-description paragraph. It does have the other characters in it, but is about 75-80% Leia’s POV. It takes place about two years or so after A New Hope.
Having read Martha Wells Books of the Raksura series, I’m definitely looking forward to her foray into Star Wars.
