Well, this is sure to be a pleasant wake up call brought to us by Lucasfilm. Airing during Good Morning America this morning, the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Trailer trailer has finally graced us with its presence. And what an exciting trailer it is. The trailer spends most of its time introducing us to Felicity Jones’ Rebel fighter Jyn Erso and her allies and enemies, with even a cameo from an Original Trilogy character! Surely this’ll be a fun ride in cinemas come December.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review with quite a few Star Wars authors for your listening enjoyment.

Bombad Radio: Episode 207 features an interview with Shannon Eric Denton as they talk comics, Airwolf and Star Wars. Eric has a pretty interesting story as he moved from being a comic artist, to an artist for animated shows, to being a writer. He’s a good guest and it’s a fun conversation. Worth checking out.

Coffee With Kenobi: Episode 43 is their pre-Force Friday show with some discussion on their collecting trips for Disney Infinity 3.0 figures. Their guests for this episode are Mike and Joao from The Cantina Cast as they dive into some meaty topics like Yoda, Obi-Wan, the chosen one prophecy and more. It’s an interesting discussion episode and good for any general Star Wars fan.

Fly Casual: Episode 55 is a news and rumors episode as they cover Star Wars #8, Kanan #5 and Lando #3. Then they head into Rogue One rumors, Kylo Ren rumors, a discussion on the length of the movie and whether one of the big 3 will die and which one. Overall, good show with the usual mix of humor, Star Wars geekdom and unpredictability. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

‘Aftermath’ Excerpt

July 16, 2015 at 5:03 pm | Posted in Miscellaneous | Leave a comment

EW.com has posted an excerpt for the upcoming Star Wars novel Aftermath.

Today is a day of celebration. We have triumphed over villainy and oppression and have given our Alliance—and the galaxy beyond it—a chance to breathe and cheer for the progress in reclaiming our freedom from an Empire that robbed us of it. We have reports from Commander Skywalker that Emperor Palpatine is dead, and his enforcer, Darth Vader, with him.

But though we may celebrate, we should not consider this our time to rest. We struck a major blow against the Empire, and now will be the time to seize on the opening we have created. The Empire’s weapon may be destroyed, but the Empire itself lives on…

Click here to read the entire excerpt.

Aftermath is written by Chuck Wendig and will be out September 4th, however preorders are already up for those interested.

Things I Do To Avoid Blogging

Clean out blog spam while playing solitaire.

Really important thing I found while on the internet not blogging

Pretend I’m reading io9 for blog-pertinent stuff.

Search Youtube for videos I can post.  Yeah, right.

Get in discussions with random people on the internet who I absolutely have to set straight because THEY ARE WRONG.

Attempt to organize the media file on the blog.  Still not organized.

Go back to playing solitaire.  I mean cleaning out spam.

Decide to come up with better idea than the one I’m supposed to be working on.  Waste 15 minutes on that.

Suddenly find it absolutely crucial I check out author blogs.

Run over to Netgalley to see what’s new.

Back to solitaire.  Not even pretending now.

Call my kids to impart some critical life advice.  Kids, who are grown adults, reply with, “Avoiding the blog again, are you?”

Decide I’m finally going to knuckle down and start that will-shake-up-the-fantasy-world book.  I can string this one out for a good 30 minutes.

Realize it’s Wednesday, 6:59 PM.  Time for Steve Amell’s abs.  Kill another hour.

Oh, look, no more spam.  Damnit, what am I going to do now?

Go to Netflix.  Because verifying that Dean told Sam he tried to get him out of hell is super important, right?  Get lost in Castiel-centric episodes.

Look at time and decide downtime with a book & sleep are essential for the blogger brain.
