How to Contact Christopher: A Fan Mail Guide

We receive many questions as to how fans can contact Christopher. As a general reminder, Christopher does not visit or participate in comments or message boards on any fan site, with the exception of his official Twitter and Facebook pages, and personal website.

The best way to reach Christopher is through his official fan mail address:

Christopher Paolini
P.O. Box 343
Livingston, MT 59047
USA

He loves hearing from his readers and tries to answer every letter he receives, but it may take a few months due to his schedule. Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Due to time constraints, Christopher may not be able to answer all your questions, so include only your most important ones.
  • He regrets that he cannot read your manuscripts or offer personal advice on your writing projects.
  • If possible, enclose a stamped, self-addressed, business-size envelope.
  • Make sure your name and return address are written clearly on the letter. Christopher can’t send you a reply if there’s no return address or one that’s illegible.
