Paolini's Inheritance Series gets Enhanced Ebook Treatment

With ebooks becoming more popular, publishers seem to be playing more with the idea of enhanced ebooks, with added content (videos, music, pictures, etc.).  October will see the release of Christopher Paolini's Inheritance Series (Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr, Inheritance) in a deluxe enhanced ebook edition with videos.  Details from their press release below:

The INHERITANCE DELUXE Enhanced Ebook with Video (On sale October 23, 2012 / $13.99) includes all the features of the hardcover Deluxe, plus 17 exclusive videos that take readers behind the scenes with Christopher Paolini for a unique reading experience, as he shares stories and secrets about Inheritance. Videos are embedded throughout the text, allowing readers to watch Paolini’s commentary on scenes as they unfold. He touches on topics and characters ranging from the Capture of Nasuada, the Siege of Urû’baen, the Fall of Galbatorix, Angela the Herbalist, and his thoughts on returning to the world of Alagaësia in the future.

In addition to the full text of Inheritance, the Deluxe Edition includes never-before-seen artwork by Christopher Paolini, a letter from Paolini to fans reflecting on the series, and a new scene within the text.

The all-new Enhanced Ebook with Video follows the June announcement of the Inheritance Deluxe (available in print and ebook). The new releases follow the November 8, 2011, publication of Inheritance, the fourth and final installment of the #1 bestselling Inheritance cycle, which achieved the highest first-day sale in 2011 of any fiction or nonfiction, adult or children’s title published in the U.S. and Canada, selling a staggering 489,500 copies in print, digital, and audio formats.
