Hi all,

For the last few weeks, I have been working on both an exciting and intriguing project - a Digital Magic Magazine.
I call it: 'The Double Magazine', its slogan being: 'You WILL Turnover' (Double Turnover, getit' Smile )
I am currently using a cool software which allows the magazine to be flipped like a real book, and has a zoom in and zoom out feature.
The First issue will be completely free, with the rest, MAYBE being payed for (the most it will be charged for will be £1.00).
http://www.daisywheel.com/thedoublemagazine/issue1
That's the link for the first issue!
It contains:

Tricks from me and top welsh magician David Gemmell!
An awesome interview with the one and only; Cameron Francis!
A review of Above the Fold!

And a few more bits and bobs.
Please tell me what you think, feedback and encouragment are appreciated!

Best wishes,

Kyle MacNeill

I know this should be way down the list of comments, but I greatly appreciated that the writing makes sense, and that the text isn't typo-ridden and gramatically nonsensical. Not that I expected it would be, but there are many things put out these days where you have to try to translate what the writer meant. So well done for that.

I enjoyed reading it, just the right length to last a cup of coffee. A nice idea, and well done.

Good job Kyle. Is there any chance of releasing a pdf version for off-line viewing?

A credible first effort. If you stick with it you will only make it better in content, ease of use and fame in the community.

Congratulations.

Thanks guys!
I am still uncertain on whether I am doing the rest as PDFs, or using this software.
I am thinking PDFs, as they will be free. The only problem is, it was easier to design the layout on the software I used (It had templates and more), but I'll give it my all!

Best wishes,

Kyle

Am slightly bias, have followed Kyle progress for quite a while, he in turn has suported my efforts. I was really pleased when he asked for some material from my books to be included, the out-standing effort and passion that Kyle has for this art is light years beyond what most had at his age. I predict that his name will be one of the driving forces that will carry magic long into the future!.

Well done young Sir.

Great job, Kyle! I like the look of the interface. Personally, I think it's more fun than a pdf. Good questions during the Cameron Francis interview, nice tricks (even though I have no idea what a Yorkie bar is), and that's probably the most in-depth review I've seen of Above the Fold. Keep at it!
Now appearing nightly in my basement.

Good stuff. There were quite a few formatting errors which I found in some cases meant I had to zoom in then out; but on the whole it looked really good and for free or a small charge, you really cannot complain about the content. I agree that the format is more fun than the PDF but less practical in my opinion. I tend to read ebooks or electronic content on my phone or Ipad. I don't think this format works to well for those platforms.....certainly not for apple proucts so I think I would be more likely to subscribe if I could get it as a PDF or could print it out easily.

Okay guys, thanks for the great feedback!
I am going to look into maybe doing both a PDF Version and the software version (The layout may look different though, even though they both will be the same issue and have the same content).
How does this sound?
By the way, thanks MaxfieldsMagic for the compliments!
And if you don't have Yorkie Bars where you live, you sure are missing out, 'cause they are mighty fine!

Best wishes to all!

Kyle
