A young adult novel just announced, to be published by Disney Lucasfilm Press.
Maybe I'm crazy, but Lost Stars and Bloodline have been my favorites of the new EU, so I am petty psyched.

Oh, this'll be good.
More Leia is always welcome, but this should mean more Alderaan, more Bail, more Breha! This is awesome.
Claudia Gray is going to go three for three, isn't she? This is great news.
Very excited for a Leia book. Even MORE excited to see Claudia Gray's name attached to it!

Well this is a must have.
My money....my precious money....Disney is taking all of it.

Man, this is like an ideal matchup.
This is all part of the plan so Gray can write a spin off Leia film right?
Claudia just needs to be Del-Rey/Disney Press's go-to authority on Leia.
Woot. More Gray? Nice. More Leia? Nicer. Disney-Lucasfilm Press? Boo, that means no US paperback.
Claudia Gray? Check
Possibility of exploring Leia's royal life and relationship with her family?
Breha! Breha! Breha! Breha!
Yay, new Claudia Gray book! Even better that she's writing Leia again, Bloodline was one of the best novels of the nuEU.
Be interesting to see how big of timespan this book will cover. We know very very little about her during the nineteen years inbetween Ep. III and IV. All we know is that she was helping her father out in the senate and secretly aiding the various Rebel cells by 4BBY and made a very quick appearance in Lost Stars at a dance to celebrate the graduation of Thane and Cienna's class (which would have taken place a couple/few years after that). Only thing else we have gotten I believe is a quick flashback scene in the Leia comic where Bail is telling her that she needs to act like a proper princess (or something a long those lines).
You can buy the cheap-arse UK edition.
You should have heard my cheer in the room when this came on screen.
Missa ab iPhona mea est.
And here I am, still waiting for a Padme as Naboo senator story.
The Princess Leia: Royal Rebel book covers young Leia's life as well.
Leia was really young in the
Spoiler: other 2016 novel release
Hope we get some insight on Leia's memories of Padme
Leia awoke in a cold sweat. She'd had that dream again. The dream of the sad, kind woman. Why was she always so sad? Leia could never tell but deep down she felt this wasn't a dream but a memory.
Another book between 3 and 4?
Love Claudia Gray though! Wonder what the story will be. Very interested in more Gray/Leia.
