Hmm. I mailed out so many free e-books that I reached google's sending limit. As a result, I am unable to send mail thru google for a limited amount of time...hopefully less than 24 hours. As such, I am temporarily unable to reply to the many emails I just received in my google account. Please don't think I am being rude by delaying my responses. I have no choice in the matter.

Well, as I can’t respond to my emails, I’ll hope most can see this thread.

Some of the emails (which I, unfortunately, can’t respond to at the moment) indicate that people did not get various prior supplements.

If you bought Switchcraft after a supplement was released, then the supplement came with your book…all in one giant pdf.

There are seven in total, and they are:

The Billet Machine
Billet Proof
Silver Billet
Back from the Dead
Stack Master
CT's Switch
Q 4 U 2

Hopefully, this helps some folks.

I’ll respond individually as soon as they let me send emails again.

Elliott,

How many supplements will the manuscript ultimately have? Or, is this a work in progress and will be a never-ending projcect and labor of love?

Switchcraft is a fantastic work. Thank you Elliott for another excellent supplement - and the beauty of these supplements as well as what is in Switchcraft is that the ideas, routines and indeed switches can be adapted to suit your needs.

When reading the latest supplement, new ideas were already occuring.

If you do not yet have Switchcraft, it is something I - and so many others - heartily recommend.

Switchcraft is a complete work filled with a multitude of practical billet techniques, ideas and routines. People have publicly posted that it contains enough information for several books and that, by itself, it is very much under-priced. Before publication, I hired a professional editor to catch any typos. As such, I have not had to revise it much at all. It is not a work in progress.

Now, it just so happens, that I wrote seven additional booklets with even more practical techniques, routines and ideas. At the present, I am offering these booklets as a bonus to new Switchcraft purchasers and have also provided them, free of charge, as supplements, to everyone on my mailing list.

Of course, I make no promises that I will always offer eight books for less than the price of one. So, if you are on the fence, I recommend buying the books now, instead of waiting around for me to raise the price Smile

Thanks,

Elliott

Thanks so much, Neil. I’m really glad you enjoyed Q4U2, and that the books have jumpstarted your creativity. That was one of my top goals and I am always happy to read a post like yours.

A pleasure Elliott, and rest assured my comments are shared by many. Who else can not be touched by a spark of creativity after discovering such useful and fooling sleights.

Thanks Neil.

I figured I’d place my thousandth post on this thread. I really need to stop posting, and write up some of the new stuff already Smile

So, I’ve officially begun (continued to an extent) work on the next supplement…the huge one that I referred to elsewhere. I think it will probably be completed at some point after April. Due to the scope of the project, I may also decide to release a few smaller supplements along the way.

I wouldn’t mind selling a few more e-books, so I’m considering taking out a small advertisement in the back of Genii or Magic. Of course, I’ll need to figure out how I’m going to submit the ad – it looks like I’ll need some sort of graphics program; and, more importantly, what the ad should say.

Man- you can NOT go wrong with an ad. I can't imagine it not doing well if you put in ad in one of those magazines. I wish you good luck but as your produt speaks for itself I know it'll do well. Keep us informesd.

Thanks Christopher and Nathan,

I’m thinking of a smallish ad to test the waters, so I probably won’t have many quotes in it. An eight of a page sounds good to me….just some text and my web site’s address, Now, I just have to figure out what to write.

I’m leaning towards, “Switchcraft - Billet Work Made Easy” or “Switchcraft-Learn Billet Work”

However, if anyone here thinks of a particularly catchy phrase for a Switchcraft ad, please let me know or just post it here.

Thanks,

Elliott

I got this, and it is really a wonderful piece of work. it's very direct and so clearly explained...if you don't have it and you're looking to find out more about billets, get it

And for the advert, for what it's worth I'd lean more towards the "billet work made easy" over the "learn billet work"

Thanks muse!!!

Also, thanks to the fellow who PM'd me all that great advice, and my friend Shmuel, who is helping me design the ad.

I'm gonna go with Switchcraft - Billet Work Made Easy.

I think I may be able to fit in one testimonial that I think would look great in the ad. Just in case, I'll I contact the legendary mentalist who sent it to me, to make sure he is OK with it appearing in Genii too.

Hi folks,

Lulu has been giving me some trouble lately, and a few people emailed me that they could not successfully buy the book on Lulu.

After spending hours with Lulu support staff, the resolution was that the problems were caused by the fact that I had a password for editing the document and copy/pasting data. Apparently Lulu does not allow that, and my old document just slipped through the cracks.

Without going into detail, I am aware that material from my book was already rehashed several times in various formats. However, I feel that allowing copy/pasting makes life just a little too easy for potential plagiarists.

Therefore, until I decide otherwise, I removed my book from Lulu.

As of now, Switchcraft can only be purchased on my site:

http://ebswitch.googlepages.com/home

(and also Christoper Taylor’s web site)

Thanks and sorry for any inconvenience,

Elliott
