We set a course for the remote outpost planet of Batuu and hitched a ride with imaginative and charming author Zoraida Córdova to chat about her new book Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – A Crash of Fate.
Zoraida is the award-winning author of the Brooklyn Brujas series and The Vicious Deep trilogy. Her short fiction has appeared in the New York Times bestselling anthology Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View, and Toil & Trouble: 15 Tales of Women and Witchcraft.
A Crash of Fate sees childhood friends Izzy and Jules reunite on Batuu after 13 years apart. Let’s just say, a lot can happen in 13 years… and in the hours following their reunion.
Are you ready for a whirlwind adventure set in a galaxy far far away? Of course you are. Saddle up, enjoy the interview, and be sure to grab a copy of A Crash of Fate when it hits shelves on August 6!
We are just days’ away from A Crash of Fate’s release. How do you feel?
I feel both terrified and excited. It is a very strange combination of those two emotions. A Crash of Fate is my 11th published novel, but it is my first Star Wars novel. I write young adult fantasy and also adult romance, so I’ve had several stories out in the world since 2012. I know that I’ve done short fiction for Star Wars, but the novel is a completely new experience.
Very exciting. A Crash of Fate is, broadly speaking, a Star Wars story set in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu which is now located at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland in California and soon-to-be at Walt Disney World in Florida. Have you been to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge?
I have not been yet. It is a grave sadness in my life, but I will remedy that as soon as possible.
