A cross between Jules Verne’s “Around the World in 80 Days” and a detective story, no Christopher Paolini book tour is quite right without him leaving his signature in all manner of places, including his signings!
While Christopher is currently on the second and final leg of his international Inheritance book tour, we wanted to share a complete summary of the events and happenings from the first half of his tour. Christopher diligently tweeted photos and information from each tour stop from many different locations in Europe. We’ve compiled hundreds of tweets and images into a three-part series, the first of which will feature photos, tweets, and information from all of Christopher’s signings!
Highlights from the first summary include many “sneaky pictures” of Christopher secretly signing copies of his books in book shops and airport stores he visited, as well as huge and epic book signing events, conventions, and more!

Christopher is currently on in Germany as part of his European and Australian book tour, set to last through July. Christopher’s German publisher ran contest for fans to create a song based on the Inheritance cycle and it looks as though one group has risen to the challenge. Christopher recently met the pair responsible for the song at one of his Germany book tour stops, posing for photos and recording a teaser video for the release of the song and its accompanying music video.
We know very little about the song itself, but the German publisher (and the band responsible for the song) seem to be hyping it a great deal, indicating that the results should be promising! We’ll post the music video when it releases this Sunday. Below is Christopher’s teaser announcement for the video’s reveal:

Christopher is in New York City, ready to kick off his three-month-long international book tour, during which Christopher will visit the U.K., Europe, Australia, and New Zealand! He recently sat down to write a note to Inheritance fans, which we have to share with you:
Kvetha Fricäya. Greetings Friends.
Hi! At the moment, I’m at the Random House building in New York City, preparing for my overseas tour. This afternoon, I’ll head over to Europe for my first stop. Details of my events can be found here (the list will continue to be updated as time goes by):
This is going to be a really big exciting trip. I left home on April 9th, and I return home on July 2nd. In between, I’ll be visiting everywhere from Amsterdam to Australia. Some of the places I’ve been before (most notably on my overseas tour for Eldest), and some of these places I’ll be visiting for the very first time.
I’m looking forward to meeting as many fans of the Inheritance cycle as possible, and my goal is to sign all of their books!
As I travel around, you can follow me on Twitter at @InheritanceCP. I’ll also be writing regular updates to let you know where I’ll be signing and to share interesting stories along the way.
If you can make it to one of my events, I look forward to meeting you then. In the meantime:
May your swords stay sharp!
Christopher’s tour will be using the hashtag #PaoliniOnTour across Twitter and Facebook. All of Christopher’s tour-related tweets will be marked with #PaoliniOnTour so that his fans can easily follow and contribute their own tour-related tweets as he travels the world!
We will make sure to keep our tour information page as up-to-date as possible. Keep checking in for more updates from Christopher!
We are excited to announce that we will be interviewing Christopher Paolini in the near future and for the first time since Inheritance released, are asking members of the Shur’tugal community to contribute interview questions for the author! Because the interview is fast approaching, the opportunity for fans to submit questions will not last long. If you have a question to submit, please be sure to do so right away.
The staff of Shur’tugal will be sorting through questions submitted by our audience and choosing what we feel are the best questions. Chosen questions will be asked during the interview. We do not know when the interview will be released on Shur’tugal and may take up to several weeks after the recording date.
