Christopher Paolini’s latest installment of “Alagaesia News”, which can be read in its entirety here, was sent out to fans today. The newsletter sheds some light upon his recent trip to New York City, where he accepted a Quills award for Eldest:
“To my surprise, when the presenters for the young adult award announced the winner, I heard them say my name. My heart was pounding so hard as I walked up to the stage, I thought that I might keel over in front of six hundred people. I said then, and I say now, that I am incredibly grateful and honored to know that you, my readers, voted for me.”
Christopher also discusses his first time meeting Ed Speleers, an Italian Eragon parody, the Eldest Limited Edition, Eragon movie products, and more! If you’re not already subscribed to Alagaesia News, you can do so for free at Random House’s official Inheritance website.
