The Star Wars Force was with us!

Matthew Stover, Star Wars author and science fiction author, talked about franchise fiction ( as opposed to fan fiction - which I had thought were one and the same ), about writing, and about his newest project: a graphic comic book series. It was very informative and interesting to hear about his work with the Star Wars label. We had someone from Sarasota come to hear him, as well as some others who were familiar with his work and with the Star Wars franchise.
Mr. Stover talked about how writing the Star Wars books also gave him insight into his own writing and strengthened his own novels while providing him with something we all hope to make from our writing (or some of us, anyway): money. With that comes the freedom to write, and it was clear he enjoyed doing that very much.
