Christopher Paolini: Colorado Gold Keynote Preview

Eragon. Eldest. Brisingr. Inheritance.

Those four titles should ring a bell, specifically the name of writer Christopher Paolini.

Christopher, with 35 million books in print, is one of the keynote speakers at the 2018 edition of Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers’ Colorado Gold conference and we’ve got him on the podcast for a sneak peek of his themes and messages.

For those who don’t know, Christopher was fifteen when he wrote the first draft of Eragon. In its first edition, it was a book published by his family in 2001.

Two years later, the book was scooped up by a major publisher and it was an instant success, reaching a worldwide audience. Christopher's second novel Eldest was published in 2005, followed by Brisingr in 2008. Inheritance, the fourth and final book in the cycle was published with a first printing of 2.5 million copies.

As you’ll hear, despite the fact that parents have named children after his characters, Christopher is humble and under-stated—another writer who enjoys thinking about the art, and mechanics, of telling a good story.
