Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book News

  • There is a new anthology raising money for CJ Henderson in his fight against cancer. The anthology entitled Dance Like A Monkey will features stories by authors like Kevin J. Anderson, Ed Greenwood, Rebecca Moesta, Michael A. Stackpole, Timothy Zahn and many others. Click here if you’d like to support the project and secure a copy of the book.
  • Star Wars author Jason Fry posted some interesting comments on tumblr. At least one of those Star Wars projects is a junior novel for Star Wars: Rebels.

1) One manuscript (Star Wars) given a final inspection and sent off. It’s never wise to say something’s done, but this one should now move to the “fielding occasional queries” stage.
2) One manuscript (Jupiter Pirates) worked on between errands, emails, travel plans and everything else on this list. Long way to go on this one.
3) One query answered for a third project (Star Wars), and a handful of minor changes requested. Fingers crossed, but this one might actually be done.
4) Query sent for a potential project (Star Wars). Will be interesting to see if this one becomes a reality or not. As projects come to an end, you better have new ones coming into view.

  • Christie Golden has a new World of Warcraft book coming out this May, War Crimes. Battle.net has an excerpt as well.
  • “The Reach of Children” by Tim Lebbon is now available on Kindle.

‘Jedi Academy: Return of the Padawan’ Reveal

March 5, 2014 at 8:51 am | Posted in Books, Star Wars Books | Leave a comment
Tags: , ,

StarWars.com has a nice reveal for Jeffrey Brown’s next Star Wars book, Jedi Academy: Return of the Padawan.

After surviving his first year at Jedi Academy, Roan Novachez thought his second year would be a breeze. He couldn’t have been more wrong. Roan feels like he’s drifting apart from his friends, and it’s only made worse when Roan discovers he’s not the amazing pilot he thought he’d be. When the school bullies take him under their wing, he decides they aren’t so bad after all — or are they?

This year, Roan will have to face alien poetry tests, menacing robots, food fights, flight simulation class, online bullies, more lightsaber duels, and worst of all…a girl who is mad at him.

Jedi Academy: Return of the Padawan will be out in hardcover on July 29, 2014.

goodnight-darth-vader-020714If you’ve enjoyed Jeffrey Brown’s three previous Star Wars books, Darth Vader and Son, Vader’s Little Princess and Jedi Academy, you’re in for another treat in the Vader family saga.  Star Wars.com announced the addition of Goodnight Darth Vader, from Chronicle Books.

Darth Vader: Sith Lord, enemy of the Rebellion, and…bedtime storyteller?

Lucasfilm and Chronicle Books are excited to announce writer/artist Jeffrey Brown’s latest all-ages, fully-illustrated Star Wars book, Goodnight Darth Vader. It’s bedtime in the Star Wars universe, and Darth Vader’s parenting skills are being tested anew in this delightful followup to the breakout New York Times Bestsellers Darth Vader and Son and Vader’s Little Princess.

Vader may be ready for his kids to go to sleep, but his twins, Luke and Leia, want a bedtime story first — one that involves the aliens, heroes, villains, and monsters of their world. From Han Solo and Chewbacca to Boba Fett and baby Ewoks, from the wampa ice creature to Jawas, all of the galaxy’s denizens are getting ready for a night’s rest in this delightful story told in verse, with plenty of nods to the rich Star Wars narrative.

Goodnight Darth Vader will delight Star Wars fans young and old, and, once again, remind parents that the experience of parenting is universal, even in a galaxy far, far away…

Release date listed on Amazon is July 22, 2014

Newly revealed on edelweiss is a sequel to Jeffrey Brown’s Jedi Academy simply titled Jedi Academy 2. The book currently has a tentative release date of July 29, 2014. Like the previous book, it will also be available in hardcover and has a page count of 176 which would make it a little longer than its predecessor (160 pages).

Author/illustrator Jeffrey Brown returns in the highly anticipated sequel to the New York Times Bestseller STAR WARS: JEDI ACADEMY!

It’s time to return to middle school in a galaxy far, far away….

After surviving his first year at Jedi Academy, Roan Novachez thought his second year would be a breeze. He couldn’t have been more wrong. Roan feels like he’s drifting apart from his friends, and it’s only made worse when Roan discovers he’s not the amazing pilot he thought he’d be. When the school bullies take him under their wing, he decides they aren’t so bad after all–or are they?

This year, Roan will have to face alien poetry tests, menacing robots, food fights, flight simulation class, online bullies, more lightsaber duels, and worst of all…a girl who is mad at him.

This incredible, original story captures all of the humor, awkwardness, fun, and frustrations of middle school–all told through one boy’s comics, journal entries, letters, sketches, e-mails, and more.
