Empire Strikes Back From a Certain Point of View

Thrilled to announce that I’m one of the contributors to the upcoming Empire Strikes Back From a Certain Point of View, a sequel to the New York Times bestselling first volume that celebrated 40 years of Star Wars.

I’m one of 40 authors writing new prose short stories from the point of view of secondary or tertiary characters in The Empire Strikes Back, broadening the scope of their role in the Star Wars universe. It’s an absolute honor to be a part of this special project and all proceeds go to the First Book charity.

I can’t wait for readers to see the full list of contributors involved and the stories we’re cooking up. Expect more details to come in the weeks ahead.

D&D: Infernal Tides #3 Reviews

Comics For Sinners: “This comic book keeps delivering. Good story. Great art. Endings that keep you yearning for more.”

Fanboy Factor: “It’s richly complex, vastly full of characters and dramatic tension, battles that seem unwinnable, and good versus the evil.”

Screen Rant: “…exquisite imagery and precise linework that conveys both the magnitude and scale of Avernus and the claustrophobic intimacy of a vicious street brawl with the legions of Hell.”

Sequential Planet: “It’s a fun adventure that has tons to love and a wonderful start to the return of comic books”
