John Jude Palencar's Christopher Paolini's Brisingr's post.

I live right next to one of the larger Barnes & Noble stores, where they tend to do a lot of their events. So, despite the fact that I have never read a Christopher Paolini book, I thought it would be fun to walk by and see the party gathering for the midnight release of his Brisingr. Little did I know the B&N crew would be so well prepared for the would-be chaos that anyone standing near got sucked in, corralled upstairs, seated and told to sit still before you could say, "Hey, I'm not with the band." Alas, I ended up in a sea of appreciative ten year olds and their supportive parents. Truth be told, it was fun seeing so many doey-eyed kids excited about the release of a book.

Best of all, the evening was an excuse to have a near-midnight conversation with John Jude Palencar to talk about the covers. Anyone that knows John, knows what I mean when I say, you can ask him about work and in no time you're talking about chipmunks in the backyard, the state of the family pets, and just about everything else under the sun. Email is wonderful but it has taken many of these lovely meanderings away, which is sad.

Anyway, for thems that care, my report of the evening is over at:
"Christopher Paolini's Brisingr release. Or, I can only talk to artists" on

I laughed appreciatively at your description of being whisked upstairs with the appreciative ten year olds and their supportive parents. And now I really extra want to meet John Jude Palancar. I adore those wandering, circuitous conversations!

That cover is easily my favorite of the 3. It's beautiful.
