Hi,

Over time, quite a few people emailed me that they could not buy Switchcraft as they do not have Paypal accounts. Therefore, I just listed Switchcraft on Lulu.Com. I believe they take regular credit cards.

I also believe that I will be able to revise the file for any future upgrades, and that purchasers will have access to the upgrades.

There’s nothing fancy about the listing.

In fact, I pay a lower commission if you buy the book directly from my web site.

The Lulu listing is there to accommodate the folks who have been asking for it.

Of course, if anyone wishes to add a review on Lulu, I would certainly be appreciative.

Thanks so much,

Elliott

By the way, I picked out a cheesy looking cover for the product page, but I can't tell if it gets included with the actual book or not. Then again, maybe folks are better off with just the normal text cover Smile. Still, I am curious. If anyone buys Switchcraft on Lulu, please let me know whether it comes with the new funky cover.

I got sidetracked on another board, but the next supplement is very much under way. It includes some contributions from top mentalists as well as some cool billet work of my own. There are both techniques and routines. Hopefully, I will wrap it up by next Sunday.

This is a great book! I just bought mine today, and was thrilled to see just how in depth and complete a resource it is! Given some of the other magic ebooks I've purchased over the net over the years I had low expectations with this one (despite its great reviews), and was very pleasantly surprised to find it lived up to what everyone said. I am very impressed! I look forward to many more days of happy reading.

FYI, PayPal allows you to pay with a credit card but WITHOUT creating a PayPal account, so I'm not sure why anyone would be having trouble with PayPal, maybe it's just a problem of perception, people thinking they still need an account to pay.

Lucky

P.S. - Please let the purchasers know how we can get the updated/additional supplement you are talking about!

Thanks Lucky!!

I usually just send the supplements to everyone on my mailing list. You're on the list, so you should receive it as soon as it's wrapped up; probably next week.

Another contributed technique & routine just came today. The contribution is from two mentalists we have all heard of. Looks like I’ll be busy for a while. Sweet!!

Just turned some of my handwritten notes into eight pages of clear typed instructions. We're getting there. Although, for some reason, this one has been taking longer than usual.

Its on lulu.com already I think? have a search around...

it's the best thing you'll buy, superb thinking, well explained, lots of routines, no waffle, no pie-in-the-sky handlings, simple, honest, deceptive work...its a rare old bird is Switchcraft...

Elliot, you should really stop with all the freebies and do a big old compendium in the new year or something...but I would say that, cos I've already got it..wooohahahaha

Mike,

By “book,” I assume you mean something like an actual hardcover edition. That's a good question. The answer is… hopefully.

Right now, I am focusing on providing Switchcraft purchasers with as much solid new material as possible.

That said, at some point, the well will dry up and I will, no doubt, turn to the eventual twelve zillion page e-book and try and figure out what to do with it all.

That day had not yet arrived, so I am still focusing on pushing forward, instead of looking back.

Four things are for sure

1. Any hardcover will be more expensive than the e-book edition
2. It will be a long way down the road. I'd guess AT LEAST a year off
3. If someone is waiting for the hardcover, it's gonna be a long wait. I would just buy the inexpensive e-book now.
4. Due to cost constraints, there is a small possibility that a hardcover edition will actually contain less material than the ebook. I would hope not, but you never know.

Abraxus,

Thanks so much. I will do my best to maintain or exceed that level of quality going forward.

Thanks Mike!! I'm looking forward to spending your money Smile

re: Supplement 6:

Finished typing the instructions for the final effect, and converted a contributed video file to WMV format.

Now, all I need to do is write an introduction, figure out the order of things and self-edit. It seems that I’ll most likely be mailing this out at some point on labor day weekend.

Came up with a new easy technique that fits nicely with the rest of the supplement. I’m presently typing it up, but it is getting much too long for one supplement. We’ll see what the final product looks like, but I may decide to split the material up. Perhaps, I’ll include the special contributed technique and video together with the new one. Maybe a bonus routine or two…and save the rest for other supplements. We shall see.

Elliott,

If I were to purchase from the Lulu site would I still receive any updates?

As the supplements have been free and, more importantly, at least 50 email accounts block me as spam, I make no commitments that a Switchcraft purchaser will later receive additional free supplements.

That said, I have spent countless hours getting the free supplements to those 50 or so Switchcraft purchasers who's accounts block my mailings each time a supplement goes out.

Of course, most (thousands of?) supplements were received without a hitch.

If you buy from Lulu, you will receive an automated message with instructions on how to contact me to get on my mailing list.

The preferred mode of purchase, however, should be paypal / payloadz. In such case, I get your email address for my mailing list right away.

Finished the new technique, photos and all.

Cut it down from about 60 pages to about 35 pages, by pushing a lot of routines and ideas to future releases; otherwise I’d never get it out any time soon.

The trimmed down supplement will feature a contributed technique and video, but will also have bonus material including a second technique, an idea and a really cool billet routine.

On top of writing and shooting the second technique, I totally re-organized and trimmed the whole book. Therefore, I will need to give it a whole new self-edit.

I’ll, hopefully do that tomorrow…or maybe I’ll go to the movies instead Smile
