Go ahead and use it if you want, Chris

I get a kick out of this goofy sword photo I took of myself, so sometimes when I get asked for a promo photo I'll send it instead of a more normal one. I also sent it to my publisher, and Angela Carlino (genius book designer -- wait till you see the design of the new one) kind of got into the spirit of the thing and posted it on her office door.

Recently someone in the office came by and asked if it was a photo sent in by one of Chris Paolini's fans. (Apparently he gets lots of photos of people posing with swords in his mail. Despite the title of this post, I'm not sure if he uses them for anything, or indeed what they could be used for.) This makes me like the photo more rather than less. Though I know not why.

perhaps, after the release of andromeda klein, instead of just posting pictures of people posing with your book, you should set the requirement that they must pose with the book AND a sword.
