Update on Eldest

Yesterday, Kenneth Paolini sent an email to Robby of DuShurtugals, talking about the progress Chris is making on Eldest:

Christopher hears about a lot of the stuff on the Eragonfan.com site and appreciates what going on. He is “nose to the grindstone” and clacking away on Eldest. He reports that he the book is 80% written. Don’t hyperventilate yet, because once it is at 100%, then the editing process begins, with his mom, sister, and me giving it the red pen treatment. Then, he’ll ship it off to his editor at Knopf. And then more fun and games ensue . . . but good progress has been made since Christopher got home from his last book tour, in March.

Don’t hyperventilate? We can try…
