After all, my goal will be to sell these at my lecture. Some might be available afterwards, if I don't sell out at KIDabra.

Let me know if you have any left afterwards and fancy selling a copy to me in the UK Donald! Smile

I have had the opportunity to browse the first 50 pages of Kyle's book. So far...I can tell you that this book will be very useful for those who are interested in this market and are either currently not doing so, or are dabbling in it but are looking to pursue it more successfully and strategically. I place myself in the latter category. I have had the opportunity to work a decent number of festivals as well as smaller county fairs. Much of what Kyle provides in the pages I have read will be familiar to those who follow discussions here because Kyle ( and others) offer so much for free to those willing to invest the time. In his book it comes together in a more organized fashion. In addition, and because it is well organized, I found some pearls that made my purchase price paid for. I discovered one important additional group of people to include in promotional efforts as well as pricing strategies that will greatly increase my booking fees while at the same time increase my professionalism. The material is very detailed and will allow someone new to magic to understand how to proceed. This is written from Kyle's personal experience, so experienced performers will have their own tweaks on doing things, but Kyle offers detailed step by step guidelines that will work. I will probably have a chance to provide a full review some time next week.

Donald, I know several that would love a copy.

So I will tell you like I told Kyle, 'get busy writing.' Smile

Kyle, again congratulations on a job well done.

Thanks for the interest, Bob and Tom. I'll announce the book release in August, after the conference (on a different thread).

Kyle, sorry if I distracted any attention from your book, or the topic at hand. Again, congrats!

I've read a book (or was it a paper or report?) by Donald and it was very good and clearly written. I'm sure the book will be well done regardless of the topic.

Even if you are in the market, there are golden tips and suggestions that really can and will have a positive effect on you. Thanks again.

Although I have not been able to finish reading the book yet, I have read a bit further. What strikes me most as I read is the extreme detail Kyle provides in each aspect of the book. I find myself asking "who remembers all this"? Fortunately, Kyle does. This is great because he can share something that many writers could overlook as an unimportant detail. I now feel better prepared to more fully penetrate this market and optimize the festivals I participate in this year.

Charlie: WOW! Thank you my friend. I really appreciate the kind words. It means a lot to me. This was 10 years in the making because I wanted to put in as much detail as I possibly could. I wanted the book to be as complete as I could make it to give folks as much help, assistance or tips. Whether you are a beginner in the market or a seasoned pro, there is something in this book for everyone. For that I am very grateful Thanks.

The reviews have been coming in and I am so humbled and grateful for them. Thank you my friends. The new book is getting some really nice reviews and I wanted to share with with you.

"I put this right up there with Nick Lewin's Cruise ship book. It takes Pro's to write these time saving informative books to help shorten the learning curve and get you out there working. A must buy not just for magicians but for any variety act looking for this type of work!"
- Michael FINNEY – 2009 World Magic Comedy Act of the Year

"OMG - this book contains every piece of information ANY PERFORMER could need who wants to break in to the Festival Market. Everything is covered from what to say on the website to contracts and even how to handle interviews. This book is a GOLD MINE for performers. It makes we want to get back in to that market again!!”
- PAUL ROMHANY – Editor of VANISH magazine

"This book offers an amazing opportunity to acquire in-depth knowledge of a niche market. Festival Magic will be worth thousands of dollars to any performer willing to study, adapt, and apply Kyle's advice. If you are looking for a new market and want to save yourself years of trial and error, buy this book!”
- SAMMY SMITH – Author of Big Laughs for Little People

This 112pg book is filled with the most up to date information on how anyone can work and succeed in the festival and fair markets. I am really blessed and grateful to so many folks over 10 years who have helped make this book a reality.
