Topic: Pre Blackpool ESPy-onage offer
Message: Posted by: Stephen Young (Feb 16, 2013 03:50AM)
From today until 21st February, as part of "my gearing up for Blackpool" arrangements, I'm offering a special deal.
Anyone buying ESPy-onage before 21st Feb will receive Ends Of The Line and Psyclips completely free.

There is one catch....... I have only 30 copies available for this offer, so once they've gone...they've gone.

The next batch won't be available for a couple of months.

Hey, what if we bought ESPy-onage last year when it was released? ;)
Message: Posted by: Stephen Young (Feb 18, 2013 12:55PM)
Firstly I think a little more polite request would have been appropriate. But that's just me.

Well there are two ways to deal with this.
The first one is to say that the "gearing up for Blackpool" offer wasn't in force then.

I bought Tru Test when it first came out and paid full price for it.
It is now available substantially cheaper.
Does anyone think Mr Kranzo will refund me the difference? Not that I'd ask.
And then presumably refund everyone else who paid full price?

People in all types of businesses, even creators of magic effects, make special offers and/or discounts all the time.
I could understand someone being a bit ****ed if they bought something the day before a special offer began and the seller didn't either offer them the discount or tell them to wait a day before ordering.
But I only just decided to offer this deal.
I thought I was being generous to those who may have been thinking about buying ESPy-onage.
Turns out I'm I'm being unfair to previous purchasers.

The other way is to say "check your email". You'll find Ends Of The Line and Psyclips in your INBOX.

Having re-read my post in not sure the humour I intended came through as it was meant to.

Hopefully the fact that two nice shiny PDFs are sitting in Keith's inbox tipped readers off to my attempt at dry wit.
Any other prior purchasers of ESPy-onage who want Ends If The Line and Psyclips, feel free to email me.

My bad. I'm very sorry, I was completely joking, and no disrespect or impoliteness was intended. I really should've PM'd you. You raise a good point about offers.

Thanks, Stephen!

Not a problem Keith.
I was trying to lead you on and then hit you with the sucker punch of the free PDFs
But I think I layed it on a bit thick in the first part.

I hoped the worse the first part the bigger the punch line, but in re-reading it didn't work in text like it did in my head.

People should get on board with this. Psyclips contains a lot of killer thinking on the 'Sneak Thief' plot and as a bonus it also details a cheap, cheerful and effective billet index. The thinking behind ESPyonage is amazing and the props are great. This deal is a no-brainer.

I would have been interested but the video teaser is so useless and time wasting that I got put off.
Message: Posted by: Stephen Young (Feb 19, 2013 07:29AM)
Thanks fir that Matt

The video clip relates to the back story included with ESPy-onage.
It was my first attempt at a video teaser and I agree it wasn't much use to those considering a purchase.

If you want to PM or email ill be happy to give you any info you feel was lacking in the add copy and video

This is a wonderful effect and I will be demoing my variation at Blackpool! (to anyone interested in watching)

I sat with Steve in Holland with this and I loved it, stong, direct and easy to perform (meaning more room for actual presentation).

Pete

P.s If you are put off buying a product without even seeing it then you don't deserve to perform it.

Having read all the comments here and on other topics concerning Steve Young I feel really out of step as I have purchased ESPy-onage and have had to send it back to Steve. I must add very quickly that it was Steve’s idea to return the item and not mine as I told him that I could not use it. The reason that I had difficulty was not the fault of the effect in any way as it is every bit as good as and more than promised. Due to a recent very bad fall and quite a blow to my head I find that my memory and eyesight have been effected a fair amount and also I am numerically dyslexic. Even though you do not need perfect eyesight, a brilliant memory and the arithmetic is basic, I did find it very nearly impossible to be confident performing. After all this what I am building up to is let all Café members know just what a great guy Steve is and how very understanding and sympathetic he was. There was no hesitation in his insistence that I should return the cards for a full refund. This is the sign of a true gentleman who can be trusted completely and deserves all the support in his efforts to push the boundaries of Magic every to new heights. Thank you Steve and I hope to meet you at our junior club if ever you are in the Manchester area.

We appreciate it don. If you've been perusing the Café for any length of time ohhhh 2 to 300 posts you know Steve is one of the regular guys who has grown from a newbie to a brilliant thinker and producer of fine fooling mentalism. I don't know how he does it. Doesn't sit around arm chairing I suppose.

Thanks guys, though I do do my fair share of arm chairing :)
From 8am until 6pm I am on the go non stop. I don't sit down once all day.
When I get home though, I do tend to be on the sofa all evening until about midnight.

Unless I'm out performing like tomorrow night.

or behing the computer typing up ideas.
