Looks interesting. I know it says coming soon but has anyone had a sneak peek at this yet? Paul, can you tell us more?

Good doctor,

A few people have had a peek at this, but I don't think that they are regular posters here. In the interest of not getting this post removed (which has been happening lately), I want to make clear that I am not selling anything.

As you have probably noticed, my site has been rebuilt. I spent a lot of time on it and I would welcome feedback on it. Also, if you would like to get a FREE sneak peek, then please go there and sign up for my newsletter in the "for performers" section. It will only take a minute!

Thanks Paul.
I signed up!
Always of interest what Mr. Prater is up to.

Signed up also. nice website. Although at the contact page, the submit button is a little bit to low. (just mentioning this to help you).

Thanks Eddie & Cirrus.

I have tried testing this on multiple computers, but alas, I am not a website designer. In fact, it frustrates me to no end, but I really feel a sense of accomplishment when I get it done. The site rebuild took forever.

I'll be shooting you guys an email this evening.

Hi Paul,

be sure to test on Windows in IE and FireFox, and on a Mac in Safari and FireFox, and also on an iPad

for me some of your text was running over in some places

also I have trouble reading some of the doubled text images (shadowed text) so take a look. creepy AND legible is best

Bill

The booklet sounds interesting for sure. The web site though, has a big white bar on the right so it is only filling about 70% of my screen.

I have not seen "A Picture is Worth" yet, but I did get an early look at "Freaks". The routine centers around five post cards of circus side show performers (Freak Show). As with all of Paul's creations, it comes with a well written presentation manual with detailed handling tips and great presentation ideas. The method behind this you'll find is devilishly elegant. Enjoy.

OK, I don't need anymore website comments. I tried to make some changes and everything went wonky. It'll probably be the weekend before I can get it fixed. GRRRRR.

Gary, You probably couldn't see it because this is part of the aforementioned website breakdown. Nonetheless, no, it is not released.

No problem Paul, we'll just consider this a teaser of exciting things to come. Looking forward to the post de-bugging relaunch.

Paul, I think Gary was refering to Freaks, which does appear to be currently available for sale on your sight.

My copy of freaks arrived today. Very simple but deceptive method, nice props. I might age the photos a bit to give some added authenticity. Comes with a good presentation, but will probably change to fit into with several other tricks. The method could easily be adapted to other photos, so I'm happy with having bought this for that reason alone. Can't wait to try it out.

I got Freaks yesterday and will be trying it out after or dinner to day, loverly picture card's and I have down loaded some old freakshow posters, have a bit of organ carnival music playing in the back ground would be cool I think.

Well I just performed it ,there was not 5 people present so two people had 2 picture card's each.Outcome?,it worked like a charm ,so I tip my hat to Mr Prater for a nice little mentalism effect.
