Star Wars Publishing News: Knight Errant Nomination and Riptide Second Printing


Good news around the Star Wars publishing world as two authors have recieved good news.

John Jackson Miller has received a 2012 Scribe Nomination by The International Association of Tie-In Writers.  Miller is in the running against Erin Evans, Christa Faust, Marshiela Rockwell and A.C. Crispin in the category "Speculative Fiction/Best Original Novel."

SPECULATIVE FICTION/BEST ORIGINAL NOVELSTAR WARS: KNIGHT ERRANT by John Jackson Miller
DUNGEONS & DRAGONS – FORGOTTEN REALMS: BRIMSTONE ANGELS by Erin M. Evans
SUPERNATURAL: COYOTE’S KISS by Christa Faust
DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS: THE SHARD AXE by Marshiela Rockwell
PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE PRICE OF FREEDOM by A.C. Crispin 
Best of luck to Mr. Miller, though we will always have a soft spot in our hearts for Han Solo Trilogy writer A.C. Crispin.

In other good news, author Paul S. Kemp's third Star Wars novel, Riptide has gone into a second printing.  Once again proving the viability of a well written Expanded Universe novel that doesn't star film characters.


@Paulskemp
Just learned that my latest Star Wars novel, RIPTIDE, has gone back for another print run. Thanks, all. Force Lightning for everyone!

  1. Riptide is an entertaining adventure that picks at the deeper channels of the reader's mind. Like all Star Wars books, it has action and adventure. Jedi Jaden Korr travels with his spacer companions as they hunt down a batch of renegade clones. Lightsabers, blasters, and vibroblades draw blood on all sides as the game of cat-and-mouse leads to its climax. Kemp spices it up by throwing in a third party, much like the Anzati in Crosscurrent. Yet he doesn't stop there. Throughout the book, Kemp provokes the reader with tantalizing intellectual threads that add a whole new layer of depth to the novel.

    At the center of the story is Jaden Korr. In Crosscurrent, Jaden dealt with time traveling Jedi, Sith, and a moon inhabited by crazed Force-sensitive clones. Now he's training the Cerean spacer Marr to be a Jedi, and cleaning up the mess that eluded him on the frozen moon. While the clones have a head start, Jaden finds the help he needs with his new companions.
