Fricäya. Greetings Friends.
many of you have heard, I am writing the final chapters
of Book Three, which will be published September 23,
2008. Earlier this year, I realized that I had too
much story to fit into one volume and that a fourth
novel was necessary to complete the adventures of
Eragon and Saphira as I originally envisioned them.
Therefore, what began as the Inheritance trilogy has
become the Inheritance cycle.
know from your letters that you are curious about
the name and cover design of Book Three. The decision
to add a fourth book to the Inheritance cycle has
affected many things, this included. I promise you’ll
be the first to hear as soon as the title of Book
Three is announced. And, like you, I am excited to
see what the cover will look like!
at Random House have some exciting pre-publication
activities planned for 2008. You can anticipate that
something new and interesting will be revealed each
month, beginning in January.
you a happy holiday season, and . . .
swords stay sharp!
