SWDotJ.jpg I’m absolutely thrilled to announce that I’ll be writing a brand new Star Wars novel for Del Rey/Star Wars Books.  The novel will be calledStar Wars: Dawn of the Jedi – INTO THE VOID, and is set in the Dawn of the Jedi era currently being explored by John Ostrander and Jan Duursema in their fantastic comic series.
I’m so excited about the novel, which I’ve already begun writing.  I can’t say much more about it yet, but I’ll release more news and details here as and when I can.  Watch this space!
Can't wait for this one.  If its based on the Dark Horses comic book series we are in for a treat.  I'll keep you updated on any progress.  Here's what Wookieepedia says about Dawn Of The Jedi:

It is set in the earliest days of the Jedi Order, beginning in 36,453 BBY, in a time before the polarization of the light and dark sides of the Force.

In 36,453 BBY, Force-sensitive sentients are brought to the planet Tython on eight Tho Yor Pyramid Ships. The Tython system is colonized over the next ten thousand years. When a mysterious and powerful Force Hound named Xesh arrives on Tython, a series of events is set in motion. Meanwhile, the stretch of the Rakatan Infinite Empire is felt across the galaxy. Dark and light begin to be polarized within the developing Jedi Order.
Just as a bit of trivia Tim Lebbon did the novelisation of Cabin In The Woods.
