Star Wars Been Bery, Bery, Good to Me ...


Got a note from one of the editors at Del Rey -- Shadows of the Empire just went back to press for a few thousand more copies. Fourteen years ago this one first hit the racks, and I'm still getting royalties -- not huge, but still, it earned out the advance a dozen years back.


Always nice to be attached to a profitable project.

I'm still getting $40 or $50 a year from the shorts I did. It's more than I get from my Trek episode royalties.

FSAnd will be live tomorrow. I've been coding 48 of the last 56 hours, but it's almost there.

Mobi & Epub is harder than it looks at first. I have nice clean HTML and the mobi/epub books -- which both are html, at core -- are still fairly lousy. We'll go live with them the way they are and replace them when I learn better. They're readable, just not pretty.

So, Steve, when will "SotE" be available for e-readers? Seems an e-ntirely appropriate "e-dium" for the subject, at least in my book...um, iPad! ;~)

Thanks, as always, for your creative works!

Now, the impulse driven, instant gratification addicted and overly obsessive readers of the world have unanimously selected me to be their "voice." Please, Sir, get back to the "SoTS"! ;~)

Shadows of the Empire was my favorite Star Wars book when I was in Jr. High. Definitely one of the better ones out there, in my opinion.

Got me, insofar as SOTE is concerned, re e-bookery. I'm not in that loop ...

Shadows rocked. It would be great to see you working in that universe again. Maybe you could take over the Mandalorians.
