The Pocket Star book titled World of Warcraft: Arthas (by Christie Golden) is shipping on April 2009. You will get a postcard of its cover at BlizzCon 2008 on October 10th in the swag bag. TWILIGHT, The third and last part of the Starcraft: The Dark Templar trilogy, has been pushed to May 2009.
Let’s address ARTHAS first. Unless something changes, it is indeed a hardback coming out in April of 2009. While unfortunately there are no plans to put a sample chapter in the goodie bag for Blizzcon, do look for a postcard of the incredible cover. I met with some folks at Blizzard to discuss the upcoming trilogy, and they showed me the art. Like everything Blizzard does, this one is fantastic! More on my trip in a separate post.
As for TWILIGHT, the third and final book in the Dark Templar trilogy set in the StarCraft universe, current plans are for that to come out in May of 2009. The reason for the delay is…well, we can blame that fallen paladin for this too! Yes, I was hard at work on ARTHAS and so the projects got swapped around a bit. I am currently on my final edit for TWILIGHT and it’s fun to revisit this series. I really loved Jake and R.M., and enjoyed the “voice” in which the story is told. I like to describe the series as Bladerunner meets Indiana Jones. I’m quite proud of it and I hope you all go out and pick up FIRSTBORN and jump right in, knowing that the third book is indeed on its way!
