Every one of the 500 deluxe boxed sets of Scripting Magic Volumes 1 and 2 has, glued into the front cover of Vol 1, a bookplate signed by me. To make that happen, a courier brought me 500 bookplates one day, which I signed. Pretty sure that’s the only time I’ve ever had an actual courier bring me something.

While I was doing this, I had an idea. I wanted to make a couple of the bookplates special, like a golden ticket from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The people who got those would get something. Not a tour of my house, but something. This is what I did.

Three of the bookplates have a number written on them. If you have one of these books, you win a free script consultation from me. Send me a script, or a video of you doing a trick—or both!—and I’ll send you notes.

To claim your prize, send a photo of your bookplate to I’ll contact you to work out the details.

Just to be clear:
1) You don’t have to have a script. You can just send a video of you performing the trick, and I’ll give you suggestions to help you write a script. (But you'll get more out of it if you have a script.)
2) One trick or routine only please.
3) The notes will address at least three things: the trick, your performing character, and how those two things work together. Other than that I can’t say what my notes will cover until I see your work. Might be a specific line or lines, a different presentation (or a suggestion of one if you don’t have one yourself), an idea to change a prop, a new hook or structure for the presentation, or replacing the props with something else.
4) Depending on my real-world schedule when I receive your script/video, it might take me a week or two to clear the time I need. I hope you understand.
5) Only one prize per bookplate. Other legal-sounding restrictions should also apply, probably.

Please feel free to let everyone know.

Thanks! Sadly my deluxe edition did not have a number but good luck to all, and regardless of this opportunity, get these books! Rich with ideas to really make you slow down and increase the magic you provide your audiences, whether friends or paying customers. So worth it. These two volumes are the pride and joy of my small but mighty magic book collection.

Sadly, all of the deluxe editions were originally advertised as being numbered.

I got mine delivered today in the UK and they are beautiful. No number on mine either (I also thought that all deluxe editions were individually numbered (as was stated on the site that I purchased them from), but hey, these are wonderful books and will take pride of place on my bookshelves alongside other great books such as "Strong Magic" and "The Collected Works Of Alex Elmsley". I just need to find the time to study all this material!
