Overdraft print edition ships July 23 — and a new Kenobi short story!

A couple of news items, about a pair of events less than three weeks hence: First, the preorder page has been posted for the print edition of Overdraft: The Orion Offensive, published by 47North. At 400+ pages, the trade paperback collects the entire serial — and it releases on July 23, exactly two weeks after the last serial episode goes online. Order it here.

An order page has also gone up at Amazon UK — and other international markets are soon to follow. The book is also scheduled to be offered through many other book distributors and sites: the ISBN number is 978-1477807521. I’ll add links to my site as they become available.

A quick note about international sales: while the printed book is now available, the Kindle version remains U.S. only until this next Tuesday, when the Kindle Serial ends; at that point, electronic edition sales for overseas markets will open up. I’ll post the links again when that happens. (And, yes, just six days left for U.S. readers to get the whole story for the Kindle Serial price.)

Next, in this month’s Jedi Journals
Forcecast podcast, Del Rey’s Erich Schoeneweiss announced that I have a
short story — a prequel to Star Wars: Kenobi — appearing in Star Wars Insider #143, shipping July 24. The story is illustrated by Chris Scalf, who drew the promo piece we had at New York Comicon. You can get the magazine at your local bookseller or preorder it here.

I’ll share some more details as we get closer to the date, but this is, believe it or not, my first Star Wars: Insider contribution. I originally concocted the idea for “Labor Pains” with the intent of taking it to Insider many years ago; for one reason or another we would up publishing it on the Hyperspace website instead, where it became my first published Star Wars prose.

July is starting to look like a pretty busy month. And there’s some more news to come. Stay tuned…
