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


I love hearing from readers and try to answer every letter I receive. Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Due to time constraints, I may not be able to answer all your questions, so include only your most important ones.
  • I regret that I 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. I can’t send you a reply if there’s no return address or one that’s illegible.

If you’d like to send me a message on social media, you can do so via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram. As a general reminder, I do not visit or participate in comments or message boards on any fan site. If you see someone claiming to be me, it isn’t (unless officially confirmed in very rare circumstances, such as my participation in a Reddit AMA).
