Tom Hoeler had the good fortune to spend this summer with what many Star Wars fans would consider a dream internship: working with the Star Wars Books team at Del Rey’s Manhattan offices. Although you might know him better as Darth Internous from the Facebook page. I feel somewhat responsible for that moniker sticking, since I was the one who suggested it. I figured I could make amends with an interview here on the blog. Tom gives fans a neat peek at the inner workings in the publishing world and talks about some of the exciting things he had the chance to work on this summer, including the Essential Reader’s Companion and promotional material for the summer’s conventions.
