In her latest entry to A Padawan's Journal, Holostar co-author Maya Kathryn Bohnhoff discusses the forceful women of Star Wars and the differences between writing women who have Force sensitivity as opposed to those who do not. Check out the excerpt below and click here for the full read.
"As you may have guessed, the novel currently known as Holostar has at least one female protagonist and not one Jedi. What?s the difference? What a Jedi may be able to accomplish through clever application of the Force, a ?mundane? character must do with cleverness alone. Remember, we?re not talking about holding down a day-job and spending weekends online or at science fiction conventions the way normal folks do. We?re talking about extraordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. We?re talking about situations in which a slip of the lip or a false step might result in a one-way ticket to the Great Beyond."
For her next blog entry: "Zoology, or what if your hero needs a dog?"

They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
