Would a real mentalist HAVE an unforeseen complication? Next time, have your unforeseen complication written down on a billet and put it in this sealed envelope...

We can't look too perfect. Otherwise people won't believe it's real. Smile

It's done and edited. Tonight, I plan to combine it with the existing book, update the pdf's bookmarks, check it over, upload to payloadz, run a test download and check it, update my web site, and update my mailing list.

Assuming there is time left, I plan to begin sending it out.

My email issue (the number of emails I can send in a 24 hour period is limited) gets worse, as my mailing list grows. Therefore, the supplements will probably go out over several days, beginning either tonight or Wednesday night.

The mailing order will be somewhat random (I can't go through the list and pick people out...I'd just end up inadvertantly insulting people that way,) so please have patience. They should definitely all go out within one week.

Thanks again,

Elliott

Uploaded the book to payloadz, and updated my web site.

Now for the hard part...figuring out how I'll distribute this.

I'll get started on that, but I need to hit the sack pretty soon, so I can't say for sure how many copies will go out tonight, if any.

Thanks guys.

Tim, I decided to just spread them out, based on my email capacity.

Approximately 500 complimentary ebooks were just delivered.

I did not look at the names, but just highlighted my list and counted down to 248. Then I did it again.

Tomorrow night, I hope to mail slightly less than 500 again.

Then I'll wrap things up late Thursday night.

(Hopefully, there will be at least 490 new posts here tomorrow Smile )

Elliott -

Your choice of course but the way I suggested allows you to upload in a few minutes and blast out the link with a single email.

Of course it's your choice however you want to do it. Figured you might want to save some time and headache.

I don't understand. Wouldn't the limit on the number of emails I can send per day still apply? It sounded like it would just be a link, instead of an attachment.

For those who came in late:

Switchcraft is the one-stop everything you could want to know bout billets and if you want to know more, then you must have mastered everything in Switchcraft already and that's just not possible. Not in one lifetime.

If you don't know what a billet is or you think billet work is passe -- move on. You're no mentalist.

If you've not heard of Switchcraft yet, go back and read this entire thread. It's worth your time.

The latest supplement and fullest version yet of Switchcraft is hitting the airwaves even as I type. Just received mine, and - not only is the file fatter than ever, it downloaded quicker than ever. Don't know if this was Elliott's doing, but I'm grateful.

There's a slightly newer version of a classic Orville Meyer effect, and it seems to work fine and dandy -- It'll be up to you if you want to do this version or the original of Tervil. And then there's Elliott's advice on how to get a good peek at a billet.

And a tantalizing tease of what may be coming in the Very Near Future.

I really doubt anyone here hasn't picked up Switchcraft yet -- but if you haven't, for goodness' sake, WHY NOT??

Not the way we would do it. People would sign up for the notification of the new supplement. When there was one we'd hit a button and let everyone know at the same time with a link to the new supplement and a way to protect it as well.

I agree completely. I have learned so much from Switchcraft that I consider it one of the core textbooks of Mentalism.

Thank you so much Chet, Aaron, Tim and Tony.

Just a note: If you didn’t get it yet, have no fear. Over 50% still need to go out, and delivery will resume tomorrow night.

Chet, that version of Orville Meyer’s Tervil is by Alex Tyuluman.

He posted it on a private forum in early August, and I thought it was the coolest thing ever.

I dropped some hints and sat back for a while, hoping it would come in as a Switchcraft contribution. Over time, my hints started getting less subtle, and I even offered $100 bucks for the routine on the board…it’s that good! (Thankfully, I don’t think Alex read that post Smile )

Finally, I just PM’d Alex and asked for it.

Thanks!....He did it again. Did it again.

Sung to...well, you know.

There is already a lifetime of magic in this tome. And the HITS just keep on coming! One of the threads on the Café asked about being on a desert island with just one book....I guess I"ll need to find a solar powered device.

Thank you Elliott.

Just got it and haven't yet had the time to read it but I would like to thank Elliott for moving the ball forward in the field of mentalism. His efforts will help our art for a long time to come. Thanks.
