Exactly. I fully agree.

. . . and that's one of the reasons I ordered my copy without requesting for a review copy. That's the kind of confidence and trust I have in Mark's works. Smile

I preordered when they first became available

But Mark I have to say you are doing this all wrong... you seem to be delivering them before you said you would...

The point of preorders is you get the money.... and then finish and send the goods Ďwheneverí and in some cases never.

Shame on you for trampling on magic tradition in such a way.


I think you may have jinxed me with your kind words. The books did indeed arrive yesterday and they look gorgeous ..... but, and this is where the attention to detail that Gaz speaks of kicks in. I noticed that a small part of the gold stamping on the cover was missing. Nobody on the planet other than me would notice that it is missing. The book still looks amazing and the content is all as it should be.

As a result I spent a lot of time agonising over whether to ship them out as they are knowing that only I would know they were not perfect. In the process keeping my promise on shipping. In the end I decided they need to go back to the printer to have the missing part of the gold stamp added. This is going to add a couple of days delay but I am hoping to be able to start shipping by the weekend.

I took this decision for a couple of reasons, firstly I canít let something bearing my name go out of the door knowing itís not as good as I can make it. Secondly this is a Collectorís Edition and as such it needs to be worthy of a place in peopleís collections. Iím sure many would have considered it worthy as is because it really does look beautiful but for me good enough isnít good enough when I know it can be better.

My sincerest apologies to all who have pre-ordered, and for those patiently awaiting the release. Anyone wanting a refund due to the delay pm me and I will issue it immediately.

I have a pre-order confirmation, you have spotted an error, the books are back at the printers.

I could have predicted that (assuming I read it out, not you).

Actually not quite, the books are still with me and will be collected this morning and hopefully enough to cover the pre-orders will be returned to me tomorrow. Some may have gone out from MindFX already but those customers would have been contacted as Michaelís stock went direct to him. Those copies will be extra rare. I will take a pic of the current book and you can play spot the difference with the pic of the cover design I posted earlier. It was a tough decision to have this fixed because Iím not sure anybody else would have noticed or cared about the omission other than me but having opted for the top quality in every aspect I want these to be perfect. Maybe it is a product of my autism but I couldnít love the book with the cover being wrong despite the content being as intended.

Is that photo meant to be different to the one you posted three posts above??? As they look the same to me ...

Iíll be honest Iím not that interested in the plot, so I either preordered it, the day preorders opened, because I like your thinking/work.... or youíre an expert at the free will plot and somehow convinced me, that I made the decision myself to order the book...?

Though to be fair, I only bought it as I thought it was a book sequel to that kids film with a whale in it.

I must admit I am tempted to make Harpacrown 2 a bit naff as it has taken me over 6 hours to sign and package up all the pre- orders. Iím knackered.

Iím really grateful that so many have put their faith in me and pre-ordered but man that was a lot of books in one go. The post office are going to love me!

All pre-orders have now shipped. U.K. orders should arrive tomorrow. The rest of the world may take a little longer.

Europe usually takes about 5 working days so I would expect it around Tues/Weds.

Here is a quick and dirty performance of Free Will Rock you. Excuse the poor sound (and the fat bastage doing the trick). This is slightly different than the version in the book. This version is explained in the face book group.

Oh and in case you are wondering, this is the worst possible outcome.

In addition to these two there are 13 more versions in the book.
