While it may be shameless self-promotion, I can’t help but geek out over the fact that Roqoo Depot is now on the back of three Star Wars book covers. If you start checking out the latest paperback Star Wars novels, you’ll notice some review blurbs on the back. You’ll find Roqoo Depot on Troy Denning’s Star Wars: Crucible, Tim Lebbon’s Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void, and Drew Karpyshyn’s The Old Republic: Annihilation.

Troy Denning ‘Crucible’ Video

RFBiker Scout has a really nice video of Troy Denning’s Crucible event in Roseville, MN which was done on the book’s release day. Denning keeps it spoiler free and talks about how Crucible ties into Scoundrel’s Luck, about Lando as an industrialist, how much freedom there is in writing Star Wars, how Star By Star and Tatooine Ghost came about, ironing out the direction for Crucible, the timing of Crucible and the Disney takeover, and how Troy initially had the epilogue of the book leading off to the Sword of the Jedi series but changed that in the wake of the Disney announcement. There’s some good insight and it’s worth watching.

Big thanks to RFBiker Scout for the video! Be sure to leave a like on it.

TheForce.Net posted an interview with author Troy Denning covering Crucible in some length.

Why did you choose the title Crucible?

Troy Denning: We spent a lot of time talking about titles and trying to figure out what to call the book. I had proposed several different titles and finally Shelly [Shapiro, Del Rey editor] informed me that they had come back with the idea of the title “Crucible” for the story. We all agreed that it fit. It has a couple of different meanings. One was the whole basic melting and re-forging idea, and then also the crucible that you go through as a transition — the idea of changing people. We all agreed that it fit and the only hesitation I had was that I had already used it in the title on a Forgotten Realms book about fifteen years earlier. I guess that kind of shows your age when you’re recycling your titles! I told them that and they were fine with it. We chose it because it really worked on several different levels.

Star Wars Action News also conducted an interview with Troy which you can listen to in their latest podcast right here.
