Random House has asked me to post the following statement regarding the reports of On-Sale Date breaks:

“Thank you so much for your information regarding an On-Sale Date violation of ELDEST by Christopher Paolini. The Random House On-Sale Date policy is in place so that we can provide a fair and equitable distribution of all our books to all of our bookselling customers and then, to our readers.

Random House will take appropriate action with those who have broken the On-Sale Date and will make every effort to ensure that no further violations take place.

We sincerely appreciate your understanding and we thank you for your enthusiasm for Christopher and his books.”
