Jerome Finley and I will be jointly releasing a book this summer called CloudBusting: The Inside Secrets.

I found out that Jerome had come up with many of the techniques I used when performing as Jason Micheals. Those who have the Al Mann Book, will recall the newspaper article on the front cover detailing me doing this.

Anyhow Jerome has some EXCELLENT ideas on this subject, including some I hadn't thought of. We decided to put our knowledge together and release the only book written on the subject. NOTHING will be left out. This will be an actual book not a PDF file.

It will explain ALL known techniques for doing Effect with Clouds. Including impromptu methods suitable for street performers and festival performers. Plus more advance methods that use equipment to create the effect. Something for everyone.

The book will teach you how to:

CAUSE A CLOUD TO VANISH FROM THE SKY. It will also show you methods where the person chooses the cloud (no magician's force)and that cloud and ONLY that cloud vanishes. The others remain intact.

CLOUD MATERALIZATION --psychic points to an empty space in the sky and causes a cloud to suddenly form.

BLUE SKY--psychic causes ALL the clouds to vanish leaving a blue sky, I've gotten mentioned in the newspapers for doing this.

Cloud Moving--How to make clouds Move
Cloud Sculpture--change the shape of clouds into objects

Bascom Jones, and Al Mann hinted of methods using an assistant. This book will reveal how to build such a working device in your backyard that will actually make clouds appear or disappear using scientific principles. Your secret assistant blocks away can cause clouds to appear or vanish using this device.

How to get publicity and fame doing this. Jerome has an excellent treatise on the build-up and how to really create a dual reality of what you are doing.

NO VAGUE DESCRIPTIONS..NO PIPE DREAMS Actual working methods used by both of us over the years. After reading this book you will be able to go out and do this.

Available sometime this summer. We are still both working on our parts.

Will also include some background history on Cloud busting/Melting.

ALL OF THEM can be done impromptu. You don't need to build a device, that is just explained as another method for making HUGE, HUGE cloud formation to appear from nowhere.

Not sure as we may include a DVD with the book demonstrating the effects. I'm currently planning on making this a book/dvd combo. That is one reason I'm posting here. We are trying to get a gauge of how much interest is in this book. That will determine how many copies are printed. I can assure you that this will NOT exceed $40 tops if we include a DVD. We're looking at something in the 25 to 40 range. Nothing in stone yet. Just testing the waters so the speak. We still don't know how big the book will be as we are still writing, but with Jerome and I at the present we are past 70 pages already and more to come.

Not exactly new, Cloud Busting has been around hundreds of years, it just basically has never been put in print the techniques. The secrets have been jealously guarded and passed on the a chosen few or discovered by people such as Jerome and myself. I've guarded these secrets for years and only now am releasing them since Jerome was thinking of releasing his secrets, which were the same as mind basically.

I'll purchase your product, but where did you get "it just basically has never been put in print the techniques. The secrets have been jealously guarded and passed on the a chosen few or discovered by people such as Jerome and myself."?

It has been published and passed on to anyone who has an interest in it.

I don't mind, hype, infact, I enjoy it, but come on... Smile

I really don't want to sound like I'm trying to derail this, but I think it's illegal to give people drugs - not to mention the ethical questions of taking advantage of people in that condition.

Ya, ok, this sounds great!

Tony,
I realize Bascom Jones, Mann and few others mentioned this, but we are releasing some techniques THAT HAVEN'T appeared in print. We've also got some dual reality concepts that I think have never appeared in print. I'm also not aware of anyone using my BLUE SKY Technique. I think I was the first to do this and get publicity for it. Few people have even thought of this. We are not trying to hype this book, just release every known technique plus some that we haven't told others about.

Some of these secrets I have never told anyone or shared the methods with. Mann and Jones visualized a device for doing this, but never explained how you could make such a device. Our book will explain how to do this.

Jerome Finley has developed some of the best scripting and psychology that I have ever run across in the field. His thoughts on creating a dual reality so the spectators think they saw a greater miracle than they did is invaluable to anyone wanting to do this work. That is why I wanted to do a joint book with him. To quote him from his work:
“Cloud Melting” as I do it is completely impromptu, uses no props other than yourself and the Forces of Nature, intelligent scripting, the best of spectator psychology and suggestion, and a few little extra’s that will have you bending the weather at your will.

Regards,
Devin

Thank you, I will be one of your first customers.

As I have said in other posts concerning cloud busting, I've been interested in it since childhood and have been performing it since my teenage years. Anything that I can learn to make the effect better and improve the impact is greatly appreciated.

Sorry Blindside ALREADY IN THE BOOK with Peter's permission. Plus we teach you the proper way to do it for best effect. This was the first thing I did once I got Rainmaker, you get my routine and misdirection on how to use this.

Devin, do any of these cloud moving effects happen to use an EXTREMELY long piece of invisible thread? Smile

This is an exciting project, and one that I am happy to share with Devin. The finished product will be an excellent one!

If all goes as planned, we will be having our own Joshua Quinn (creator of "Ascension" and "Conjunction") overseeing the editing, proof reading and also making sure that our instructions are crystal clear. If you are familiar with Joshua's work, you know what attention to detail this man provides.

Also, my good friend Enrique Enriquez is set to write the forward, and for that, I could not be more grateful. Enrique is one of very few that have seen the full manuscript I wrote back in 99-2000.

It's my honor to pair up with Devin to bring the community what I feel is one of the most powerful and convincing demonstrations that a magician or mentalist can perform. Cloud busting, done correctly, is hard to beat and remains with a person long after the fact.

Thanks to Devin for his continued guidance and inspiration, and to our friends and fellows who can give this type of material the home it deserves.

Kind regards,
Jerome Finley.
