    This is straight from the publicist: "You are on our list to receive a copy on/around 9/27. There are no early copies of this book."

    And James Runcie, for sure

    By the way Bev, will you receive a trade copy? Because they told me that was not going to do any proof copy.

    That's my understanding -- that I will be getting a finished copy of the book.

    IMO, the only proofs that probably exists are :
    - for internal purpose only (within the publishers)
    - translators that have an extremely tight schedule to do their work : 3 weeks for some of them.
    I've read an article about how the US publisher will not be able to give the book prior to a specific date (being... now?), that was only leaving 3 weeks for the translator to do their job as some of foreign publishers (ie : France & Sweden) will still release the book on the 27th of september...

    Edit : because of the tight schedule, they may actually be working on a finished printed copy?

    Yes, I would say they work with a finished copy.
    In fact, I'd bet that if the foreign publisher accepts to do the translations 3 weeks before the release (for saying something), they are allowed to publish on sept 27., but if not, you can't have the finished book before that.

    But the secrecy surrounding The Casual Vacancy isn’t. As with Harry Potter, there are no advance copies for the media, no early reviews.

    I just got my copy of Advanced Potion Making. It's a VERY interesting item. There's no title page, no copyright page, and no indication of who actually wrote it. All it really has is a statement on the last page stating that it was made by "The Magickal World of Wizardry" and that neither Rowling, Warner Bros or "any other offical entity" was involved.

    it's really kind of neat!

    Well those tickets went on sale 12 hours early (by accident ). This sucks! Reminds me of a certain S/L fiasco!

    UPDATE: I actually got thru by phone and got the last two tickets. Looks like my luck is turning around

    Here's the cover:



    And one of the internal pages (page 12):



    The paper is wrinkled and parchment-liike and printed on only one side. It's a pretty neat little item.

    The seller is actually the person who printed this.

    It is great!

    I made myself my copy, based on a Deathly Hallows copy so inside they have the seventh book.

    I copied the style and colors from the one which appears in the adult cover of HP7, even the wrappers and the damage parts.
