Numerous times of course. I just don’t want to feel alone in this state of uncertainty.

Finally after 5 years, I'm asking for my money back. I don't want this book anymore.
I have a lot of Mark Elsdon stuff. He won't be selling to me anymore. No matter how good his material might be.

Well, if he happens to give you the next release date in order to try to keep your custom or for any other reason, do please let us all know what that release date is.

Thanks

Honestly? Wow.

Maybe corinda's unpublished 14th step was pre-orders!! It's just a theory.

I also pre-ordered 5-years ago but after nearly 2-years of waiting, I demanded a refund to which Mark obliged. If this was a low-dollar item like $25-50 I'd probably still be in the queue, but this was a very expensive book. This was absolutely shameful and definitely tainted Mark's reputation with many of his core customers. The right thing to do in this instance would have been to send a letter of apology with three options for the buyer: (1) Remain on back-order, (2) Request a full refund, or (3) Request a refund but stay on the waiting list to reserve a copy.

Yeah to be fair to Mark he has always been willing to refund when I have asked him.

There is a sunken cost effect here - the more time you invest in waiting the harder it is to disinvest. The longer you wait the more you say to yourself "Surely it cannot be much longer ... surely"

Let's hope that this will be solved until the Blackpool convention

Has anyone considered what the effect would be if a boycott of all magic sites that sell his products was initiated? 100 disgruntled mentalists won't move the needle but if nothing he produces is sold maybe that would send a message.

Does he attend, vend or perform at conventions?

Pressure him loudly and publicly there.

Pressure the convention organizers if they hire a deadbeat for their event.

He has no problem taking $15,000 from his supporters while delivering nothing in return, but will be the first to cry foul if all his work ended up on Torrent type site.

If I'm reading correctly, he took the money for this book... when?

2012, yes?

Approximately 6 years ago?
