Kvetha Fricaya! Greetings Friends!

As 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.

I know from your letters that you are curious about the name and cover design of Book Three. The title has not yet been announced, but Alagaesia.com will have the information as soon as it’s available. Because there will now be a fourth book in the Inheritance cycle, the cover for Book Three is being redesigned. Like you, I am excited to see it!

My friends 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.

I wish you a happy holiday season, and . . .

May your swords stay sharp!
