Yesterday, Sue Rostoni said the cover for Aaron Allston’s Exile is hours away from approval… I think we may see it on starwars.com tonight.
To tide you over, there’s an excerpt of Karen Traviss’ Bloodlines beneath the cut.
It was probably because the image on the screen was of a younger Han, a man still with brown hair and relatively few lines. The picture of Leia was way out of date, too.
“I think we’d better be going,” said Leia. “Some urgent laundry.”
“Right behind you.” said Han.
He didn’t like running, and there was nowhere safer to run. Coruscant wasn’t going to welcome him with open arms, either. Either way, they were fugitives. They split up as soon as they left the store and met up again back at the apartment.
“Have I changed that much?” siad Leia.
“The picture of me they’re running.”
“I hope so,” said Han. Maybe he should have assured her she looked as good as ever to him, but he thought that practical reassurance about her safety was more important than flattery right then. “And I’m going to grow a beard, just in case. How about you?”
Leia gave him a withering stare. “I didn’t shave today. You didn’t you notice?”
The book comes out next Tuesday.
