    Does anyone know if CP is going to Wy or SD?

  • Dama Lunnaris

    Mike, when will we know where the CP tour is going and where and when?

  • argetbrisingr

    Does anyone know if I need advance tickets to go to the book signing?

  • Elfanastar

    Ok I was rereading Eragon when I came to the part where Brom is talking about the downfall of the Riders specifically the part where Galbitorix defeats Vreal he killed Vreal by cutting off his head with a blazing sword when I read that I thought of Eragon’s sword Brisingr and thought thats probably how Galbitorix is going to die with Eragon cutting off his head while Brisingr is on fire.

     i just realised something there is no way roran will be the new king because if you remember he swore to katrina that they would live on a farm in carvahall he staked his honor on it so personally i don’t see him becoming king and breaking that promise

  • larry the cucumber

     Okay I will start by saying this may or may not be a well known fact, in book three the Razac tells Eragon that Galbatorix is searching for the “name” in book one Brom tells Eragon that the true name of the ancient language would be very powerful I think that Galbatorix is close to finding that name. Just had a revalation 0.0

  • Ashlee

    Has anyone figured out if it is a public or private event? I’m a student & I plan to head to the Apple Store right after school. 

  • Agresov

    come over to Philly CP! man if only I could drive and had the motorcycle I’m gonna buy sigh I hate being young 

  • mitch

     HURRY UP INHERITANCE!

  • Sorbiej

    Be great if he shows up in NH or Boston since I only live about an hour forty-five from there.

  • Evarinya

    Yeah, Christopher come over to Florida! XD <3

     Hey mike, why did the other link to the back of the book stop letting comments? we had some good convos going haha

    • When threads get too long (usually over 1000 comments), they occasionally break. It’s a bug we’re trying to sort out.

      • bigmike

         You coundnt have waited for eight more comments before you stopped them? I was hoping that it could have had an even 2000 comments. Wouldnt it be like a new record on Shurtugal or something?It would have been so awesome!!! Oh well, what is done is done. But Im actully kind of bummed a little.

  • Kerusso

     I am moving across the country soon so I might be able to see him on one of my stops if he is there

  • Kerusso

    When Inheritance comes out, will CP be at any releases?

    • He usually goes to the big NYC release. I don’t see this changing, so I’d expect him there. That’s just a guess though — not confirmed yet.

  • Elfanastar

    Wish I could go I’ve always wanted to go to New York City and want even more to meet CP but I live to far away and must save money for college in the fall 🙁 

  • bigmike

    Does anyone know if CP is going to be going to the Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi area anytime soon? With the price of gas now, I cant afford to go very far without throwing my budget out the window. Any help would be appreciated since I have been to young to drive during his other book releases and events.

    • There are no announced tour stops at this time. Christopher’s only upcoming signing is the one in NYC. We’ll launch a tour page as soon as his stops become frequent.

  • Azura

     He should come to Guam!

  • Skymon77

    He should come to WA!!!!!
     

    • Kerusso

      Yes!!! He should! 

  • Hollywood_here_i_come

     So since this is at the Apple Store it will be open to the public, and not just to the attendees of BEA? 

    •  It looks that way. This is a side event to BEA, not a part of BEA itself. Your best bet would be to call that specific Apple store to ask if those events are open to the public.

  • Rider651

    Will there be another session where we can submit our own questions before Inheritance comes out?

  • Bookworm

    Will Christopher ever visit towns in Montana? If he does, I would like to know when and where.

    Will Christopher ever visit towns in Montana? If he does, I would like to know when and where.

    •  Christopher often does signings in Montana, as that’s where he lives. I can think of several signings and events over the past year, many of which we’ve posted about here. Keep your eyes peeled for future ones — but I have no idea where he’ll be going. No tour dates have been announced.

  • Eowyn Galadrim

    hey mike.. do you know when the book is out in Srilanka?? i believe its out on nov 8th only in selected countries….

    • We’ll be working on an international release date list soon-ish. It takes a lot of digging/updating, which takes time, but we’ll get it up ASAP.

  • Matt

    Just a Thought, He never ever has gone to england.
    Its about time HE DOES.

    Its about time he doea 

    •  Wrong! 😛 He has toured through England, Europe, Australia, etc. He’s been there, you just don’t remember. 😉

      • Sean

        when did he come to Australia?

  • I think Madrid (Spain) is still to far away form me to see him… :'(

    • Dama Lunnaris

      But maybe CP goes to Paris. I’m from Cadiz (Andalucia) and i’m going to go to Paris if CP goes. The plane tickets are really cheap. 🙂

    •  Christopher has been to Spain on tour before.

  • Amethyst Rose

    Wow… I hope he comes to Killeen Texas! I can’t wait for Inheritance to come out!

    • Danbar1997

  •  If I ever have the good fortune to meet CP I hope I have a copy of Inheritance with me. 🙂

  • Kronk911

    I wonder if he will visit Kansas City. I’d kind of like to discuss book ideas with a successful Author.

  • xhuggybearx

     I wish I lived in New York

    •  Christopher is doing a tour this fall, so you may have another shot!

      • Rblax

        do you know if he is coming to San Diego, California? 

        •  No tour stops have been announced yet, but as with years past, it’s possible Christopher will be going to this summer’s Comic Con (nothing has been announced yet, this is only a possibility).

          • Rblax

            ok thanks 🙂
