I was browsing around and see that y2john has a bunch of effects available, as well as some really interesting sounding upcoming releases.
I loved his OCD manuscript, though he stopped selling that.

Here is the site - http://ashatteredmind.blogspot.com/

Here is what the site has -


Products

All products are pdf manuscripts.

All orders will be recieved within 48 hours.



Reception:

A set of effects that all use the FOH principle (something which ive labelled it so it has a name for this description) .

Effects gone over - An open prediction that is completely hands off, can be done with a borrowed deck, and uses no gimmicks.
An open prediction of a drawing.
An acaan that can be completely hands off.
A completely impromptu booktest that uses no gimmicks etc and can be done with any book.
Thought transference.
Plus more...

Coming soon...


C4:

A collection of 4 card pieces...

Card in spectators pocket, CCR redux, MindStep redux, Serial Cards.
Bonus effects - Cards go shoe shopping, Target practice, Card to mouth transpo.

Price: $20


Dead amongst the Living:

A living/dead test style piece where the spectator eliminates 4 pictures from 5, the one they decide to keep is the only person who is no longer alive... then you end with a nice final phase that has the potential to really shock.

Price: $20


Risque:

A collection of 3 effects that have a more risque nature.
These will not be for everyone, but they have there time and place.

risQue & A - A character reading and reveal piece. Body Parts - A body part prediction. Positionsex - A sort of remote viewing, mindreading piece.

Price: $20


AcAAn:

My takes on the 'any card at any number' plot.
3 versions included... gimmicked, impromptu, and Risky.
Also includes a bonus version which is not really an ACAAN, but I thought I'd include it as it has some relevance.

Coming soon...


A very open prediction:

An open prediction that can be done with a borrowed deck of cards, without the cards ever having to be touched by the performer.
There is a gimmick involved, so not entirely impromptu, but if you have the gimmick you are ready anytime there is a deck.

Coming soon...


K-Bend REDUX:

A very simple, practical, and workable Key Bending gimmick and routine.
Uses a borrowed key.

Price: $8


Skewered:

A 100% safe, completely fool proof russian roulette routine.
This is not simply a single effect manuscript, as well as the 100% safe version, this is also a collection of all my takes on this plot.

Price: $30


BK test:

A simple but effective book test... there is a gimmick involved, but this is not the books themselves.
Any book can be used.

Coming soon...


Persuasion:

A demonstration of influence as you seemingly get the participant to draw or write exactly what you want them to.

Price: $16


A picture is worth... REDUX:

A routine involving a photograph reveal.
Bonus effect - In Time.

Coming soon...

The spectators forget something hey have locked in there minds, and in it's place is something of your choosing.

Bonus effect - A version that uses props but is sure-fire.

Coming soon...


O:

A collection of ring effects that utilise a borrowed finger ring.

Coming soon...


V-Doo Redux:

A routine that is quite possibly taking things too far in some peoples eyes, but for the right participants there is not much that can top this.

Coming soon...


That's me...:

A multi phase routine based around horrorscopes/readings etc, with a surprise ending.

Coming soon...


Sounds like there is some really good things there.
Just thought I'd let you all know.

I know it's not available yet but it sounds really interesting.

Hey...

Whoa talk about fast... I literally only put these up within the last 30 mins or so and already a topic has sprung up.
Sorry about the vagueness of some of the pieces, was gonna flesh out the descriptions tomorrow morning as I'm feeling completely shattered.

More info on 'Reception' wil be forthcoming... all I'll say is that the effects I have utilising it look incredibly clean, and all are fully focused on the participants.
Anyway more on that later.

Thanks for the interest.

Just noticed-

it doesn't mention your name ANYWHERE on the "site"/blog. Are you a real person, or am I drunk again?
If you're reading this you're my favorite magician.

Bekralik... ha ha cheers, sorry about that, none of my things had names till this point as there was no need since the spectators never know the names etc.
My bad for the spelling of that one.

My name is John Barratt.

Though it seems like a lot of releases, this is simply because I was putting together a book of m material, but then changed that to a couple of pdf manuscripts containing bunches of effects/routines etc... but then thought it might be better to allow some things to be purchased individually so that people can pick exactly what it is they want.
Also I thought I'd release a bunch together as I see no real reason to hold some back purely to space things out etc.

I will be updating the descriptions today so that everyone can make a more informed decision.
I'll get back to this thread once this has been done... I think you'll feel that you will know everything you'll need to know about each piece once this has been done.

Thank you.

Hey...

I have updated the descriptions and had a fiddle, hopefully you'll be able to have a good idea of what the effects are from what is written.
I have removed a few of the pieces as they are not gonna be available for some time yet, and so will only put up things that will be here sooner rather than later.

A couple of the pieces are gonna be released when mine and fellow Café' member Mac's site launches which will be close to the end of July.

Anyway if you have any questions about any of the material, please ask away and I'll answer as honestly as possible.

Thanks.

Yo John!

The effect Persuasion looks interesting. Can I get a little more info on it? Is it a psycological force of some kind? Can you give me an example of how a routine would go about with this principle.

Thanks!

Hey...

Persuasion is nothing new method wise, but is routined so that it seems like what ever it is that the participant draws or writes was somehow influenced by you.
It's difficult to explain exactly what happens as to a performer this would give away it's workings... ok maybe I can explain...

So in very basic terms, you write or draw what you are going to influence someone else to write/draw... you hold this out for others to see, but keep it out of view of the participant...
You now patter a bit and what not, then when they have drawn or written whatever it is they decide, it's seen you have failed... you then move your fingers to show the word 'But...', then turn over the piece of paper to show a message which proves you had succeeded in actuality.
It's very basic hence the price, but it does make for good practice with psychological forces, and if you hit with the first pic you just don't show the word 'But...'.

There is a little gimmick involved, though I simply use a home-made one which I cover also.

Hope that helps.
