Hi Iain,

I am glad you like it and I am sure you will have lots of fun with it!

Thanks The Mac, I am looking to get a demo for you out soon, I could easily do a trailer type demo but I do really want a real life performance or two for the demo so, fingers crossed I will be able to get this done sometime this week.

Nico, I have been meaning to contact you as I believe I have an incorrect email for you on my mailing list, can you please pm me your email so I can update the records, it is probably a simple typo or something that is wrong, oh and yes everyone on my mailing list has a chance of winning the comp.

Thanks again everyone,

Ben

Hi Mac,

Sounds cool, is that the counterfeit effect where you shred the spec's bill?

Thanks again,

Ben

No, its the one where you replace the treasurers signature with the spectators name.

Oh!

Wicked!

Don't know that one! But I would sure like to learn it, do you know if it works on UK currency? I have a feeling it won't!

Uh, now I feel jealous!

Jealously,

Ben

I don't really see any problem in rolling up the bill. I would just simply say "Now I'm going to roll up your bill". I May make a joke and say "Don't worry, I'm not going to smoke it" like I do in another effect I roll a bill up in. Anyway, I don't really see any explanation necessary. It's no more unusual than folding up a bill. Why would you do that either? Hey, it's a magic effect. Everything is supposed to be unusual about it anyway. So tell me: Why would an explanation be needed in the first place unless you're trying to hide the fact itself that you're about to perform a magic effect?

Ben ,
counterfeit spectator will work with just about any bill with a treasurers signature on it.
It requires some prep work but you can freely hand out the bill beforehand if you did the dirty work properly.

NIGHTMARE
NIGHTMARE
NIGHTMARE.

I am really sorry folks I have had a fire at my house and everything is smoke damaged. This has put me back with Sharp Money as everything is on my computer and there is no power. The insurers, clean up team and police have to come round and assess the situation. I am hoping I will be able to at least get my computer out of there this weekend and get everything sorted so I can mail Sharp Money out to the winners.

Again I am sorry about this and hope to have the situation in a workable state this weekend so please bear with me, what a NIGHTMARE.

All the best,

Ben

Ben. I know the feeling of being on the cusp of releasing something and something catasrophic happens. It is completely derailing. I hope your stuff is all okay. All the best. Mac

Thanks everyone,

As soon as you know everyone is ok and that the house is structurally sound etc it all very quickly becomes a massive pain in the...

Well anyways, I hope to get this sorted asap. I suppose in the meantime it b=gives anyone who hasn't joined my mailing list a chance to join to be in the running for a free copy of Sharp Money, when I get everything sorted! I suppose every cloud has a silver-ish lining!!

Thanks again everyone,

Ben

Hey everyone,

Thanks for your patience, I think I have everything sorted now and internet etc so I will be sending out the copies to the 10 winners very soon.

Check your emails in the morning, or in the afternoon, or the evening, I suppose it depends on where you are in the world, well check them in the next 24 hours!!

All the best,

Ben

Hi All,

new to the forum, actually signed up to give some feedback on the FREE Sharp Money pdf I just found grinning at me in my mailbox.

I never liked Bill to Lemon for the mess of it. And for the complete absence of lemons in any context I perform (as an aside to making music, and my band does not do with lemons). This is a fantastic handling of the effect, and the pdf is well produced, nice pictures (apart from the fact that the background is not ideal on my sony ebook reader). The instructions are clear and concise. I might switch to a non-sharpie variant, as Sharpies are not the UK favourite marker.

Very well thought out, implemented and absolutely ought to buy!

Hey Deepthought,

I have something for you, I just need to find your email address...

Sounds a bit sinister I know! But it is a good thing, I am glad you like Sharp Money, let me know what marker pens it works well with, I only use Sharpies myself but alternatives are always welcome!!!

Best,

Ben
