Long Shadows


Just got a royalty statement on Shadows of the Empire, a book that came out fourteen years ago and is still in print. The paperback just edged past half a million copes sold.

Good reason to smile on a partly-sunny spring day.

I first read Shadows when I was in Jr. High and it's still one of my favorite Star Wars books.

Congratulations, Old Man.

The Force is strong in you.

Well-earned, sir.
I bought a copy for my 13-year-old cousin-in-law last Christmas.
Take that, video games!

Just got my royalty check for the Star Wars shorts I did back in the 90s. Not much, but they do keep coming.

Ironically, I was just sent a royalty check for the pictures I posted of myself on the internet, IN Star Wars shorts.

Funny old world, eh?

Bobbe, are you sure that you aren't confusing royalties with payments not to do something again? ;)

(I know damn well in my case that'd be what they are!)

Gratz! I never got the chance to play the video game, but loved reading the Star Wars series.

Very well earned. I have always loved the stuff you write for Star Wars, and hope to see something new from you there in the future ( maybe with the Mandalorians. they could use some kick ass writing!)
