Tricia Barr: Tours, Quotes, and Appearances in May

May has been a busy month with the Ultimate Star Wars book tour. Here are some places I popped up around the web.

I visited the Mos Eisley Comic Port to discuss Princess Leia #3 from Marvel. I loved the connection to the podcast name because I wrote the entry for Mos Eisley spaceport for Ultimate Star Wars! Catrina Dennis and I shared similar positive opinions about this entry in the mini-series.

As part of the book tour promotion I wrote an article for “Ultimate Star Wars and My Writer’s Journey” dives into how I pulled together the stories and information for important characters like Luke, Leia, and Ahsoka. If you haven’t checked out the book yet, some preview pages are included.

I returned to in an article written by Mark Newbold, in which he captures fan reaction to the return of Captain Rex. Seeing The Clone Wars favorite reappear in Star Wars Rebels was a visceral experience and the words seemed to flow.

During the Tempe, Arizona, book signing on May the Fourth, I recorded a short interview with Who Wars, a podcast dedicated to Doctor Who and Star Wars.

Over at, I have been chronicling my book tour, the people I met and the things I saw. The last stop on the tour is Star Wars Weekends week 3, Friday through Sunday May 29th to 31st. I will be signing from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Writer’s Stop in Hollywood Studios. It’s adjacent to the Sci-Fi Dine-In restaurant, just past Star Tours on the way to the Streets of America.
