My New York Comic Con schedule — plus my fall tour events

It’s been an incredibly busy month following the release of Star Wars: A New Dawn and leading up to the debut of the Rebels TV series this past weekend. I think I’ve been on half the podcasts out there — and there’s been a whirlwind of interviews. And the response has been gratifying — there were a passel of very nice reviews out there. There isn’t time to list them …

The long-awaited update! My San Diego schedule and more…

And… I’m back! No, it really wasn‘t my intention to go three months without a post here.

There followed a week of unconsciousness — and now, I wake just in time for… San Diego Comic-Con? It’s been a busy year, to …

Knights of the Old Republic Omnibus releases — plus Geek-Kon schedule, and more!

Okay, I admit it — I’ve got a whole bunch going on right now, and it’s impacted my ability to blog in any kind of a regular fashion. I just finished work on Star Trek: Titan – Absent Enemies — and went headlong into preparations for the release of Star Wars: Kenobi on August 27.

San Diego 2013 convention highlights — guest-starring the Rebel Legion!

Thanks to Joseph Setele for the photo! Back from San Diego, and quite a bit to round up here. In addition to being a great show, it was a trip book-ended on both sides with surprising Star Wars meetings. On the flight from Minneapolis, first off, I met another author, John Flynn, whose name I recognized. It turns out that years ago he wrote the Fall of the Republic fan …
