An interesting article about Christopher Paolini, the Inheritance Trilogy, and the wonderful folks behind the scenes at Random House Children’s was recently published in the Bertelsmann Annual 2006 report. The cover page features a picture of the Random House Children’s staff, many of whom Shur’tugal is privileged enough to work with, dressed in medieval wear in the middle of Times Square. The second page contains a photo of Michelle Frey (Christopher’s Editor), Judith Haut, Chip Gibson, and Nancy Hinkel.
The article details the Inheritance trilogy’s success throughout the world and Random House’s key roll in the marketing of the books. The article also notes the intended but unspecific release date for Book 3 – 2008. The article is three pages long: page one, page two, page three. Enjoy!
