I just signed a contract. and I couldn't wait to tell y'all.

I've been workin' on a book for awhile now and finally finished. theres a lot of the articles I wrote here, but with corrections due to your input. Thanks y'all.

But I did a lot more writing that I have not put here or on my blog.

The company's name is leaping lizards. and the guy there is the coolest guy ever. I'm really happy about everything.


It's called,

To Lure With Spectacle And Our Mysterious Society

A Street Magician’s Manual.

Will it be sold as an ebook? Importing books to Switzerland ends up costing me around 45$ plus the actual price of the book.

In about two weeks, we'll have a better idea of release date, and price.


Here's the the introduction to the book to give you an idea.

An Introduction

A lot of street performers have different ways to build a crowd. Some will insult the “passer by”, verbally or through mimic and mime. Some will be loud and announce that they are going to do a show by saying, “show time ladies and gentlemen show time in three minutes!”

Others will simply ask people to stop. Some times I do all of these, but to “Lure With Spectacle” has been my most successful method. In the book I will be describing my method and the reasoning why I use it. I will give a step by step, on how to get started busking and how to make a living.

“Our Mysterious Society”, is a group of articles that I have bundled together from my blog, on the internet; jimmytalksalot.blogspot.com

It is also a group of writings that I have not published, but have saved them up for this book.

I have gone much more in-depth in this book then the blog. It is about our society as magicians and the conduct that is expected of us from our peers and the public.

Understanding these things is crucial, in the life of a street magician and hence has made the blog successful. These are the things that are not talked about openly enough, to the beginners.

The old pros know this stuff of course, but many aren’t talkin'! Before I knew this stuff my career as a magician was always an uphill battle.

Since I have gone in depth here, you will have a much better understanding of our mysterious society then many out there who are just doing tricks and hope they are doing everything alright.

As it is a Manual, I would suggest after you have read the whole thing, you can keep it in your bag and just read bits and pieces over and over again as primer, while your out on the street. It is sectioned off in very small chapters to make this possible.

It is my hope that it travels with you where ever you decide to go and then one day we can say we’ve shared a lot of pitches together.

I hope you enjoy the book, it took a lot out of me to put it together.

Your pal Jimmy Talksalot.

A guy who shoots his mouth of more than he should...I think that's why they call him jimmy talksalot.
