Today is April 28, 2015, and it is also Publication Day for Ultimate Star Wars! Although I have written numerous pieces for Suvudu and Star Wars Insider, this is my first official book for Star Wars.
From the official DK Publishing summary:
Become an expert on the Star Wars galaxy!
Ultimate Star Wars® is an in-depth visual feast exploring the characters and storylines from the Star Wars galaxy. This is a beautifully illustrated guide that is structured chronologically and packed full of information about key characters and storylines from the Star Wars movie saga, The Clone Wars, and Rebels™. Ultimate Star Wars will get new and old fans caught up and knowledgeable on all things Star Wars.
I accepted this writing assignment with enthusiasm, and always kept the fans in mind while I dove into the material. There were many others working behind the scenes to make this beautiful book happen.
What an honor to write alongside standout authors like Ryder Windham, Dan Wallace, and Adam Bray. We were joined by legendary Star Wars actor Anthony Daniels, who wrote the foreword, at the book launch party at Celebration Anaheim last week.
In the first week of May, the authors will be touring and appearing for signings. For more information check out the tour web page.
