Rae Sloane returns in From A Certain Point of View: The Empire Strikes Back!
When Darth Vader thinks you've failed him, you can run — or you can be Rae Sloane!
Random House/Del Rey has announced the lineup of stories for Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back - From a Certain Point of View anthology, and I can say that I've written my first Rae-centric story to date. She was a supporting player in A New Dawn, "Orientation," and "Bottleneck"; here, she's the star. I did my best to make it memorable!
Order links are live for the book, which comes out in hardcover, softcover, and ebook on November 10:
Barnes and Noble
In the meantime, be sure to check out our previous collaborative effort, Star Wars: From A Certain Point of View, which includes my story connecting to one of the characters from the Kenobi novel. (Read my notes about the book here.) A portion of the book's proceeds go the literacy charity First Book.
Online signing: Get autographed copies for Star Trek: Discovery — Die Standing!
We're a month out now from the release of my new novel, Star Trek: Discovery - Die Standing
, which bows on July 14 — and as it happens, all the events I'd intended to sign at either aren't happening or have been postponed.Never fear, however! I'm taking preorders for signed copies, which will be sent out to arrive on or immediately following the release date. The cost is $26 postpaid to addresses in the United States
, using Priority Mail Flat Rate shipping.
For addresses outside the United States, the cost is $45 postpaid using Priority Mail Flat Rate shipping.
A second (autographed!) book of similar or smaller size can be added at no extra shipping cost: in addition to Die Standing copies (in case you want a second one), I'll have these in stock:
Star Trek: Discovery — Die Standing ($17)
Star Trek: Discovery — The Enterprise War ($17)
Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith ($17)
Star Wars: A New Dawn paperback ($12)
Star Trek: Prey, Volumes 1-3 ($10 each)
Star Wars: Kenobi ($10)
Star Wars: Knight Errant ($10)
I can also announce immediate availability of signed copies of my latest graphic novel, Battlestar Galactica: Counterstrike. That goes for $28 postpaid to the U.S., $47 international — and again, an additional copy from the list above can be added for the prices listed. (Or, if included in a Die Standing preorder, it'd add $20 to the cost.)
E-mail your requests to me at orders[at]farawaypress.com, and I'll get back with a Paypal invoice and shipping cost closer to the release date once my supplies have been confirmed. Be sure as well to let me know if you want the books personalized in any way.
Apologies for the somewhat low-tech nature of the offer — I've been fighting with my online store system of late, so this is a fast way of getting the offer out there. Any questions, please feel free to ask away!
Finally, if an autograph isn't necessary, remember that Die Standing can be preordered from any of these fine establishments. Including, now, the audiobook, which was just recorded by the incredible January LaVoy!
I've just learned that 2019's Star Trek: Discovery - The Enterprise War
