Hey Guys & Gals,

I have performed Peter Marucci's Witch of Glastonbury for a long time and always enjoyed the responses I received. After contacting him, he gave me permission to sell sets of the cards along with his routine. I made some additions of my own.

I added my own routine and there is one from Christopher Gould, who you may know from Alchemy Moon and his work with Outlaw. The cards are all handmade, cut and aged, as is the envelope they come in. The cards are printed in a way to allow you to show the face of all three cards before you begin, which is a nice subtlety added by Chris. The instructions are in a 20 page 8 ˝ X 11 full color, professionally printed saddle stitched booklet.

I tried to keep the price very low while still providing a quality handmade product for the bizarrists out there. You can get more information, watch a video and purchase them from my website here: http://www.paulprater.com/paulprater2.22_015.11

Thanks
Paul Prater

Paul:

Do you know if he has fixed the instructions?
There was an incorrect step in them when he first released them in his notes.
It is a really nice routine.

Tony,

Frankly, I am not sure. I did rewrite and explain in detail how to perform the routine in the instructions and have a video showing the performance. Also, I passed all of this by Peter a few months ago. Of course, I am also always available for help as well.

I would be more than happy to discuss with you in a PM or email if you would like.

Thanks Paul, I just ordered a set - I couldn't resist with a price that low. I'll post a review soon.

It seems one could add some extra convincers in the handling, but the cards and routine look lovely...

Postage was very steep to send to Ontario Canada(more than half of the cost of the effect) but considering how fair the price of the effect itself is, I could not resist. Looking forward to this.

Hey all,

Thaks for the support so far.

Just to clarify, the issue Tony raised was addressed. No problems.

As to shipping, my standard shipping is via priority mail flat rate envelope. USPS shows shipping to be $11.35 to Canada. I can do first class international for $8.44 to Canada. These are actual costs, nothing added. If anyone wants to do something special in regard to shipping, please just email me at paul@paulprater.com. I can and will do whatever you like to lower the cost of shipping. I hate it too.

Lars, actually when I print your label, I will be giving you a refund of a couple dollars. $13.25 is actual shipping via priority mail. I do this with anyone. I don't charge packaging, handling, or other such nonsense.

Pay pal charged $15 For shipping. No worries though, keep the extra money. The effect looks great and worth 40 bucks for sure. I think you are under charging for the effect. I just want to make sure you are getting the extra cash and not the post office.

I was lucky enough to see an early version of this effect, and Paul has quite clearly put a lot of care and hard work into this. This is an excellent routine with some great aged cards (with a different method than you would expect making this easy to perform) and a great story to accompany it. All that Paul releases is of the highest quality and this, I predict, will be a massive success!

Guys,

I can't thank you all enough for all of the kind words and support that you have shown me.

I have a few quick updates. All orders placed as of 7:00 this morning are in the mail today. All of my overseas customers received a partial refund for the overage on shipping. Sorry you paid more. In that regard I believe that I have fixed that issue. PayPal's shipping options when creating buttons for overseas sales is a bit clunky. However, if there any future issues, email or PM me.

Also, if you have been thinking about purchasing this and want it immediately, please do so now. I have five sets remaining. After that I will have to make new sets and have more instructions printed. I plan on doing this ASAP, but given my schedule ASAP may not be until next weekend.

Thanks again!

Paul

Hi all,

I would just like add my endorsement to all that has been said. I received my copy of "The Witch of Glastonbury" yesterday (Tuesday) and am delighted at the detailed quality of the product. Three complete routines, nicely presented and easy to work.

At the price, you can't miss!

Highly recommended!

Leslie
Stories....?....That's telling!

I got my set late last week, played with it, and have already performed it a few times.

It's excellent stuff!

My full endorsement!

Well, this sucks to have to post up. I shipped all of the initial orders on March 1. I took them all to the post office and our local brach did not bother to scan any of them in, therefore, there is no tracking information. Obviously, some people have received them because they have stated so here. Part of the delay is that I charged shipping via media mail domestically, since I was shipping a book, to try to save shipping costs for the customer. I shouldn't have done that and won't make that mistake again. There are a few that show they arrived in the destination city yesterday, so for a few of you, they should be there in the next few days.

For those of you who have not received your cards, I sincerely apologize. Unfortunantly, since they did not scan in my numbers, I have no way of knowing which arrived and which did not. Even more frustrating, some people in the same state received them while others have not. If you have not received the cards, please review the tracking information and if there is nothing and if you haven't received them, please contact me and I will get another set to you and I will ship via priority. Obviously, this is not the scenario that I wished for and it is extremely frustrating. While I would prefer not to post this here, I want to be open and transparent with everyone. I am very sorry I may have started off on the wrong foot, but be assured, I will make everything right.

I appreciate your patience.
