A Note From Christopher: Fan Contest!

Christopher Paolini sent out a quick note to Inheritance Cycle fans to remind us all that the Super Fan video contest will soon be ending:

Greetings Friends!

Here’s a quick note to remind you that the Super Fan video contest is still ongoing, but it will be over soon! The last day to get your video to Random House is November 29. So take a few minutes and send in your entry; I look forward to seeing it.

Random House will fly the lucky winner to Montana to have lunch with me. And that person could be YOU!

Happy Thanksgiving to all,

Christopher Paolini

Random House also took the opportunity to remind fans that you can now buy The Inheritance Almanac through the Random House store for a special 30% off deal for the holidays! Simply enter SL2010 at checkout. This offer is valid through 12/10/10.

      I live in Calgary Alberta by the way. Would that cause problems?

      • Looks like it’s only open to residents of the USA. I also believe that the contest is now closed.

        • Scott Lawson

          I see. Well thank you anyway. Please tell Christopher to expand the contests to Canada

          • From below: “For those of you who ask: the reason Random House USA always excludes foreigners from contests has to do with a few reasons. First, legal reasons. Second, Random House USA only publishes and distributes the book in North America. Other countries, such as Netherlands, UK, etc. have their own publishers and distributors. Those publishers are responsible for promotions, contests, etc in their respective countries. “

            the americans are not the only ones to be fans of the saga of Paolini, I sincerely hope that the author will make something to mark the release of the final book for other fans around the world and meet its foreign fan… i hope, i hope…but i know that we will be ignored

    Hey Mike, do you think there is the smallest chance of book 4 coming out before Christmas? I would love to wake up and find book 4 underneath the Christmas tree.

    • There is absolutely no chance of Book 4 coming out before Spring, let alone Christmas.

      • zachamavisca

        Oh well.

      • Anthony Bundren

        aww… Christmas is officially ruined for me. No 3DS, no book 4… worst. Xmas. EVER.
        Nah, i’m just kidding. It ain’t all about book 4.

      • KassidyErin

        wow, awesome heads up!

  • Lauradejongh_21

    Too bad I live in the Netherlands, would be quite expensive if they’d fly me over towards Montana.
    We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving ofcourse, it’s a real american thing, counting Canada. But happy Thanksgiving to all!

    • Canada’s Thanksgiving is separate from America’s (and happens two weeks or so before the USA’s). Also, I’m guessing that the contest is only open to people from North America (Random House’s publishing territory).

      For those of you who ask: the reason Random House USA always excludes foreigners from contests has to do with a few reasons. First, legal reasons. Second, Random House USA only publishes and distributes the book in North America. Other countries, such as Netherlands, UK, etc. have their own publishers and distributors. Those publishers are responsible for promotions, contests, etc in their respective countries.

      • Unfortunately, the contest is only open to Americans. In the “Eligibility” part of the contest, it only lists the 50 states of the USA and the district of Columbia as being eligible. That part is why I haven’t bothered with a video yet, despite my want to make one anyway.Additionally, the discount code is only useful in the USA store; the Canadian Random House website store didn’t accept the code.Man, legal departments really don’t like international contests. Most magazines don’t allow Canadians either D:. Oh well…

        EDIT: But I bought the Almanac anyway :).

  • Didier Drogba is a GOD

    This is cool and everything, but on Wikipedia it says book 4 is already out. Theres even a plot summary. Good spot, Rubberduck!

  • Iceman

    I live an hour from where Paolini lives, so if I win, what would happen?

    • You would drive…?

    • Leo

  • Please don’t post theories in the comments of news posts that have nothing to do with theories. :S For the sake of proper discussions, we ask that everyone sticks to the topic of the news post while commenting.

  • Leo

    Is the new rider going to get Tamerlein?the sword is green and the new dragon will be green…so i just thought haha and is it going to be Eragon and Galbatorix who leave alagaesia so Eragon can distance Galbatorix from the Eldunari so he can defeat him?but at the same time Eragon discovers more dragons and stays to create a new order?

  • Iron Angel

    It’s a damned nuiscance.
    I’m not a fanatical fan, but I do dearly love the Inheritance Cycle.
    And I don’t have a flipping video camera, and nor do I have mountains of Inheritance Cycle merchandise.
    Just the series.
    Ah well…
    Guess I’ll just have to wait till Christopher comes to Victoria…

    • You don’t have to own mountains of merchandise to be a big fan.

  • Too bad for me. 🙁
    I tried entering, but for some reason it won’t let me.
