Aaron,

I must say I fell in love with this effect the first time I ever saw it performed.

Congratulations and best of luck with your release.

All the best,

Nick Verna

Yes, he says first 100 in the post.
I definitely need to hop on this bandwagon.

Looks unlimited to me. The *first* 100 get a bonus item, which means there will be a second 100, third 100, etc. There's no mention of release limitations.

But what, I thought this was only released for 100 people, no more? It loses its "specialness" now right?

It doesn't lose it's specialness, just more people can now experience this. The 100 limit was on it's original release and it was always known it was going to be released at a later point. I was one of those who got this first time round and am more than happy for it to now be released to all, it is a very strong effect and one I'm sure you'll like.

"The reason for exclusiveness? I only wanted true performers to get their hands on this piece, not merely the curious. I will not apologize for the price. You will slay audiences with this effect. My word is my bond and I will not release anymore than 100. Besides, they take a really long time to make and I have no desire to make more than 100."

Okay, whatever you say.

I would love to have this effect, but refuse to support a creator that so openly goes back on his "bond."

If I was one of the original 100 I would be beyond upset.

Yeah but I think I know the reasoning for releasing it now, and it has to do with it being pirated etc

Sorry, but that's simply not true. I just can't believe that it will cost less than the original release and with a bonus for the first 100 who order. What about the first 100 (minus the pirates) who stayed tru to their end of the deal?

True, I would love to havea bonus for originally purchasing it and staying tru to my end of the deal, I can't argue with that. I also agree about the cost.
It was said though that it would get a release at a later point (I think it was 2 years or so down the line). Maybe my first post didn't properly get across my complete feelings on this, but I don't have a problem with it getting a release as that means that those who missed out or would like to perform this can. I completely understand your points though.

I say release it $15 more than the original price. that way it's compromising that it's been released way sooner than it should of. get it sooner=paying more money, then with the extra money, the origina 100 people split the difference and pocket the cash as compensation Smile

Y2John,

I put up a post right here on the Café and on Secretcenter.info that a trade in would be allowed. I posted that back in February. The cut off date for that is May 15th.


To everyone else,

The cost is lower because I am not making the gimmicks this time around. I give a step by step tutorial on how to make it. It is simple to make.

As far as my word being my bond - I gave my word based on an exclusivity arrangement. One or more of the purchasers broke their word and began pirating my work. I determined that since it is being passed around for free that people might as well be able to get it from the originator of the effect and support the creator of it rather than steal it. I feel this only fair since I poured my blood sweat and tears into it. Unfortunately, being new to the sales of magic merchandise, I didn't think to create a non-disclosure contract like Bob Kohler did. Either way, I am doing what I feel is right.

I determined this back in November/December of last year and decided that I owed a full year of exclusivity to my customers. I have honored at least that.

I know I am under scrutiny and if you choose not to buy from me, I will certainly understand. I am ok with you not understanding why I changed my mind. You don't know all that went into the releasing of Believe the first time around.

Cheers,

Aaron DeLong

Trade in?

That is the reason I thought was behind you releasing this earlier.

This really is a great effect!

So any "exclusive" releases only remain exclusive if not uploaded to any pirated sites. Interesting concept.
