Hi guys,

I'm just finishing working on my book that will contain 7 card effects (6 of them are brand new effects - only one has been revamped) and one sleight which is a multiple shift. If you're a fan of some classic plots, sneaky methods and gambling related stuff, then you should really like it.

5 effects are totally impromptu, one effect requires only one additional card (and it's not a gaffed card) and for one effect you need a set-up.

There's one particular effect for which I'm really proud of. It's a center deal demonstration (it's actually a pseudo center deal so no hardcore sleights required.) I was lucky to share this effect with Darwin Ortiz. His comment that "It's excellent." made me warm and tingly inside. Also some great card men like Jack Carpenter or Tom Gagnon have seen it and they liked it too!

If anyone is interested in checking out the material and duscussing it with me, I have a copy or two and I'll be more than happy to send it to you. Just PM me with your e-mail address and if I'll get more responses, I guess I'll send some more copies or I'll just randomly pick the lucky fellas.

Best regards,
Mike

Hi guys,

Thanks for all of the responses.

Although I've already sent some copies, I will send out some more!

The main purpose of this is, of course, to share the work with you and to know your opinion about the effects. Also, although I tried my best to do the research (but you never know), I'd like to know if the material is original enough to be released so I won't make a huge mistake releasing someone else's work. That's why please don't treat it as a final product. Thanks!

Best,
Mike

I've been reading through it as well - it's got some great stuff in it and is very well written! I haven't finished it yet but will post a more detailed review when I do. Thus far I've enjoyed it!

Thank you, Andrew and I'm glad you enjoy it so far. The texts still need some serious proof-read but I've tried to do my best (with some help from my friend, Felix) with describing every effect.

Best,
Mike
