Topping off the headlines this week is Star Wars artist Brian Rood who appeared on his local news station WTOL11. You can watch the clip here. The three minute clip shows off some of Brian’s artwork, as well as a rare behind the scenes look at how he does it. We’re fairly certain the secret to his success is combination of water colors and Ewok’s blood. Yub yub.

Not to be out done, forthcoming Star Wars author Kevin Hearne will be livestreaming a book signing this Sunday at The Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale, Arizona. Kevin will be signing his new book Trapped as well as participating in a Q&A. Fans will have an opportunity to ask their own questions via the livestream, or if you’re in the area, you can ask him in person.

In book news, you can enter for a chance to win a complete, autographed set of Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid Chronicles via Patrick Rothfuss’ Worldbuilders charity. For each $10 donation, you get one entry and all the money goes to a good cause. Other authors involved in the charity include Star Wars author Sean Williams who has donated signed copies of Fatal AllianceThe Force Unleashed II, Metal Fatigue, and The Resurrected Man. However, if you’ve got deep pockets, you can check out the Worldbuilder’s eBay auction for Kevin Hearne’s autographed set (which includes special illustrations by the author) and Sean William’s auction.

The second omnibus of Daniel Abraham‘s Long Price Quartet came out this week. Dan has the full breakdown on his blog with links to both the first and second omnibus. Keep in mind that Daniel Abraham will be one of the writers in the upcoming Rebels series. He and fellow author Ty Franck will be writing the Han Solo novel under the pen name James S.A. Corey. As we understand it, the S.A. stands for Solo’s Awesome.

Meanwhile sci-fi author Kevin J. Anderson has climbed 54 mountains and 400 miles of wilderness trails in his search for Yoda. Unfortunately he was unsuccessful, but he was able to recoup the loss with a trail calendar. While there are no Yoda sightings in the calendar, we’re sure the search for Yoda will continue.
