Star Wars: Kenobi wanders into town!

The wait is over… Star Wars: Kenobi goes on sale today at your local book retailer and online emporium!

I’ve been on a whirlwind tour of various podcasts and blogs — not to mention this past weekend’s appearance at Geek-Kon in Madison, which was a lot of fun. And here’s a round-up of some of the other cool things we worked up:

James Arnold Taylor reads Kenobi! In an exclusive with Entertainment Weekly, voice actor James Arnold Taylor, who voices Obi-Wan in the Clone War animated series, reads one of the meditations from the new novel. It’s a cool clip and I’m delighted he was able to do it. Click here to listen.

The World of Kenobi! Readers of Knight Errant and Lost Tribe of the Sith might have noticed my interest in the geography of the various worlds — we published space sector maps for one and a couple of continental maps for the other. With the assistance of Lucasfilm and DK Press, I provided a map supplement on the official Star Wars blog that depicts all the major locations in Kenobi. Click to check it out!

Interviews! (Updated, 8/27) I don’t have the links for everything at hand, but there have been plenty lately. Interviews are up at MashableFangirlblog, ElevenThirtyEight, and TheForce.Net as well as a podcast at Coffee With Kenobi and RoqooDepot. And my Wisconsin Public Radio hour is here.

For after you’ve read the book, more spoiler-y podcasts are up at Tosche Station and Roqoo Depot (part two).

 And a book! The early response to the book from the advance readers has been incredibly gratifying, but I guess it’s time to let it do its thing. So here are the links you need:


That’s it. Tonight, the 27th, I’ll be appearing at the Booksellers at Laurelwood for the book launch event at 6. See you there!
