I can't remember where I originally saw it, but here is one mention of it.
There are interviews around the Net where he mentions how closely he worked with Lucas.
Stover began writing the novel in the fall of 2003 and finished the following summer. Revisions were dictated both by the editing process, including a line-by-line review by Lucas, and by changes in the script itself.
Overall, it emphasises why the novelizations are a higher form of canon than the EU.
