Please note that there is sometimes (though not usually) up to a two week to one-month wait before I can get to your order, based on my performing schedule.

A Message from Me:
February 7th, 2014:
Latest news: I have to occassionally order copies of my DVDs so my on-line provider doesn't delete them from the catalog. Consequently, I find myself at the moment with a set of my DVDs than I can't really do much with, except make the following offer: I have one complete set of From the Cradle to the Grave Vols 1-5, originally retailing at $250, I will sell to the first person making the inquiry for $200. A set of Gods With Feet of Clay Vol 1-5 original price $200, I will sell to the first person making inquiries for $150. Same with a set of Psychic Epiphanies vols 1-4, original retail is $160, I will sell this set to the first comer for $140. Click here to get it. First come, first served.
None of my books are being pulled from the market. I don't know where this rumor started but I've been fielding a plethora of e-mails concerning this. Please refer people to this page if there are any questions.
In good news I have caught up with all back December orders and have penetrated deep into January orders. I've held off shipping many of them due to freezing weather. As you know, the impression surface of my devices is Magic Slate, which is wax-based, which intense cold or heat can damage. We've had sub-zero snaps of weather due to arctic blasts and polar vortexes, and while I'm not certain the wax would be damaged, the glue holding the magic slate to the board could wrinkle (cold causing it to contract unless it dries for a week or so) and I've had much experience with people who are baffled by the simple expedient of peeling up the piece of paper, appling glue from a gluestick, and smoothing it back down. It's not hard. Most of us learned to do this with construction paper in preschool. I guess it's intimidating because people are afraid they'll tear it up and ruin something precious and irreplacable.
In bad news we enjoyed some considerable water damage on both first and second floors so had hardy workmen all over the place for the past couple of weeks. And guess what? The only place to put the washer and dryer while the laundry area is being rebuilt is my office. Where I make stuff. So now I'm trying to manufacture product in a four square foot area. But I'm plugging away. Hang in there.
IN OTHER NEWS I will be discontinuing a couple of products. The larger 9" x 12" Executive Assistant will be discontinued. I was never happy with having to "splice" together two magic slates in order to cover an 8 1/2" x 11" area. I will still be offering the 6" x 9" model. I'm also considering discontinuing the Bookworm and reducing the number of varieties of Butterfly pads.
That's all. More later. Thanks as always for your patience.
Long Delays Inevitable
I have been forced, due to the high volume of orders, to constrain my production of the hand-made items to a specific amount of time per day. My marketing penetration and performance schedule has been severly compromised by my attempts to get orders out as quickly as possible. I've often spent all my spare time making stuff all day long, time I should have spent penetrating new markets. I spend more time making stuff for other mentalists than furthering my own career. In the past, this hasn't been much of a problem--except for spreading me thin--but since I've relocated to a different part of the country I've found I need to narrow my focus on expanding my local market. I'm road-weary, and wish to stay closer to home. Eventually, since I won't be travelling as much this would give me more time for manufacture.
So my new plan is to spend a couple of hours per day, and no more, producing stuff and the rest of the time marketing and/or performing. I hope everyone understands. You WILL get your stuff. It just may take a while.
THE BEAST WITH TWO BACKS
I announce the availability of THE BEAST WITH TWO BACKS, probably the most versatile tool for the mentalist since thwe Swami Gimmick. It combines THE NEMATODE switching device with a BUTTERFLY style impression pad--all in one attractive notebook! CLICK HERE to order.
Now accepting BillPay, so you can finance those things you can't live without. Also, I've added an FAQ Page to this hidden corner of the website so I can expeditiously answer questions.
THE NEMATODE IS READY!
What is it? The Nematode is a notepad which allows you to perform a bewildering array of mentalism related miracles. Please be aware this is NOT an Impression device, although it is a development of my proprietary technology. If you can imagine the best features of a locking spirit slate / locking card box built into a notepad, this will give you an inkling of what I've come up with. You can perform Add-a-Number, Memory-Alteration effects, billet switches, billet peeks, design duplications, spirit effects, writing and design transformation effects, and so much more. Go HERE to check it out.
RUSH ORDERS: AGAIN, seldom possible. But if you live overseas, (or even in the US) and you need an order within a couple of weeks, I'll try to accomodate. However, I strongly advise you contact me about paying extra for expedited delivery, such as overseas priority or even express mail. I usually ship First Class Mail, which the post office assures me is 5-7 days. Sometimes, I'm told, in certain parts of the world, this has been more like 3-5 weeks. So if you truly need the stuff in a hurry, and if I have agreed to get it to you in a hurry, do yourself a favor and pay for expedited delivery. Yes, it's expensive, but you will get it in plenty of time.
Thanks for your continued patience. As always, there is a minimum of one month waiting period on orders. Possibly more on some of them if the order falls within one of my crazy performing periods.
And as always I'm willing to gimmick YOUR pad for no extra cost. I've been contacted by several owners of the PARAPAD asking me if I can gimmick the exttra pad into a Butterfly device. Answer: yes.
A NOTE CONCERNING MY PRODUCTS:
Impression devices are subtle tools which require experience in audience management and psychological touches to use effectively. This is true of any Impression device, not just mine. If you're a beginner or have little performing experience, my tools may not be for you at this time. In the hands of an experienced performer they are foolproof and indetectable, but these are not for beginners.
