Shadomagic copies are arriving

Waterstones Books still has Shadowmagic as a pre-order and when I asked about it in their Leeds branch the clerk looked at the computer and said it was “Unorderable.”  Then someone else said they saw a copy in a store – so who knows? 

What I do know is that Shadomagic copies are arriving from  The Book Depository and Amazon UK.  I got an email from an Irish reader.  Any of you yanks get one yet?

    Considering the fact that my book came from Amazon and is number 538, there should be quite a few books on their way to their expectant readers 🙂

    My copy arrived today! And it’s one of your special 1000! Number 722 to be precise.
    I’m looking forward to reading it.
    See you soon!

    I ordered one copy from Amazon and one from Book Depository. I’ll let you know which one arrives first!

    I was the very lucky winner of Scott Pack’s contest for the book. I got mine in the mail yesterday. It is number 39 of 1000. John, your publisher is awesome.

  5. Scott Pack Says:

    What a perceptive chap that Osiris chap is.

    Shadowmagic is in stock in a number of Waterstone’s stores including Aberdeen, Birmingham, Bristol, Cheltenham, Edinburgh, Leicester, Manchester, Newcastle, Oxford St, Reading, Windsor and, just a tad too late, Leeds!

    John, I received my two copies that I ordered. #’s 495 and 93. I gave my daughter her own copy (495 of course) and told her that I hoped to introduce her the the author someday.

  12. Diane Johnson Says:

    🙂 Hooray. Number 730 hit the US today! Thank you!

    I live in the states and got my copy from Amazon uk today. It’s number 521. The packaging had obviously been through the ringer, but the book inside was pristine.

    hey john, i had this with waterstone’s too, different stories from different stores – i had one member of staff tell me that the book wasn’t published yet (i had a copy in my bag)… i also got the ‘unorderable’ comment, it is a wee bit vexing and frustrating but it all came good in the end. best of luck with it all!

    Looks like I’m the first Canuck: got it today — number 94. My son’s blown away, first he got to hear it and now he gets to read it! Can’t wait for the sequel!

    Was going to add an Amazon affiliate link to my Favorites thing on my website — but apparently Amazon US doesn’t have it available yet.

    Missed out on the contest, too. (sigh)

  18. Craig Says:

    Attention there is a spoiler below, if you have not read the book you may want to avoid reading this comment

    even though i have had the book for a little while now i finally started reading it yesterday. i was stunned to run into something different in the book version that was not in the podcast. I refer to chapter 7 brownies.
    I have not read it yet but i wanted to ask you john,
    why was this not included in the podcast?

    Oh and by the way if you didn’t know there seems to be a problem with your websites. I get a 404 error when trying to access the shadowmagic site and even the magicguy site.
