    This is a really exciting experiment, and what a great choice of an untold story, too.

    Cavan Scott, author (from wonderful Wild Space MG books!) with a full audio cast.

    Fascinating, but I wonder is it a short story, novella, or novel?

    Woo! Hopefully they'll get Nika Futterman for Asajj. Even a decent chance Qui-Gon could show up, and therefore Liam Neeson as well.

    Oh, this sounds very, very interesting.
    That's the key Q - how is it to be available? It shouldn't be any harder than go to site, pay money, download MP3.

    EDIT: No pre-order ability? That's a missed opportunity - if the price was right I'd have pre-bought this.

    Wow! I did not see that one coming. I hope they take notes from the ROTS novel regarding some of Dooku's backstory.

    And a full cast? I wonder if that means there's some TCW actors/actresses involved.

    Though this makes me wonder it's going to be very short. I hope not. I started Queen's Shadow on Saturday and I'm nearly finished with it. Though compared to my previous audiobook 8 hours is very short compared to 48 hours.

    According to DarthInternous on Twitter, "We'll send out another tweet when the [preorder] link is available. Probably tomorrow" and "[Is it ready for preorder on Audible?] Soon." According to Del Rey, "Available wherever we normally sell audio books, so yes, Audible" (hopefully that includes Audible UK the same that it does Audible US?).

    I'm excited for this! I've really enjoyed all of Cavan Scott's contributions to the SW universe that I've read so far.

    Oh good, DI also left open the possibility that there could be a physical edition eventually, even if there's not specifically a plan to do so currently.

    So yes, should have plenty of Qui-Gon. Probably no Thame Cerulian though.

    Like all our projects - they aren't available for pre-order the moment we announce them. Why? Because we have to keep them hidden so people don't leak them via an Amazon (or other retailer) page.

    Preorder page will be up by Friday. Probably.

    Great, thanks.

    Clearly I'm too used to Big Finish, who do pre-orders but all their stuff works on lower profile than SW! Their business model is different too - as they are a small company they use preorders to partly fund production.

    I'm extremely excited about this. I enjoy Big Finish's Doctor Who audio dramas, so getting something similar in Star Wars is awesome. And for a Dooku backstory! So cool.

    Also this Funeral Moon sounds suspiciously like Kohlma. We know the moon of Bogden where he recruits Jango is just a kinda random moon, but one can't help but wonder given the fact that the synopsis bothered pointing this moon out if it's inspired by Kohlma and possibly the Bando Gora and/or Komari Vosa. Wouldn't be a perfect match, though we do know Cavan Scott does enjoy a good spooky story, given his work in Adventures.

    FINALLY. Dooku has been so criminally underserved for ages.

    Sounds like he gets a love interest too from the description of things there.

    Yess Finally We get a Dooku novel even if it's only audio. Love that we are getting a full cast with TWC actors/actress probaly. I hope like Qeen shadows we get full of TWC connections like of him and Sifo dyas, maybe how he manipulated him to create the clone army. I love to know his and Qui gon's relationship as master and apprentice. I also love his fascination with Sith relics form long past. Hope to know of with master Yoda aslo how their relations was.

    You're all April Fools.

    I would have loved this before the reboot, though.
