Posted November 19, 2018 12:30:00 by James BateyAuthor James Bates is on a roll, with his first solo novel out and his first new book in the last year.
The former CBS star’s latest is titled Lone Survivor: A Star Wars Story, which tells the story of a survivor who came to terms with his past and came to the conclusion that the galaxy was doomed.
“I am a huge Star Wars fan, and so much of the story is told from a survivor’s point of view, and it’s a really interesting story,” Bates told Bleacher Beat.
“What we find in this book is a guy who was in the middle of the Battle of Endor, in the heart of the battle, and he comes out of that battle with his life changed forever.”
Bates, who also starred on The Young and the Restless and in the hit series The Office, will continue writing for the new series.
He said the series will be a darker and more mature take on the saga.
“It’s going to be darker and a little more mature in tone,” Batson said.
“It’s an original, it’s going back to a lot of the original stories, and I think it’s one of the best things that’s ever been written.”
Lone survivor: A star wars story is out now from Penguin Random House.
