Star Wars? Star Wars!
I've been talking a lot about my YA fiction lately, but I've also written a couple Star Wars novels, including this one, which comes out in mass market paperback this month.
I was in New York yesterday on business, meeting with old friends and new at Random House to discuss upcoming projects for next year. I can't tell you anything about it now, but in the meantime, I did manage to pick up a little souvenir from the tenth floor that I've had my eye on for some time. Here it is, in a place of honor in my office.
This is a custom-made Death Trooper helmet created by the Empire State Garrison of the 501st. They built it to use in the trailer that we made for Death Troopers a couple years ago. Very cool, and handy for scaring away trick or treaters on Halloween when the candy runs out.
In other Star Wars related news, if zombies are your thing, you should check out concept artist Kai Lim's interpretation of Death Troopers.
Now that's scary. Meanwhile, watch this space for details of what's to come.
