I am very pleased to let you know that Vinny Marini is now offering my "Seven Keys" routine on his website:

http://www.vinnymarini.com/sevenkeys/

Imagine showing a group of strangely compelling keys and being able to give some amazingly accurate personality readings! You become a true teller of fortunes with this unique routine.

Here are what others have already said:

"I received your 'Seven Keys' and after reading it and absorbing your marvelous use of Tim Holtz's intriguing keys, I can't wait to give it a try. Great thinking. Great presentational materials. I am a new fan of Scott Grossberg." – Larry Becker

"The more I work with these, the more I really like them. I’m sure that anyone who does readings of any kind will immediately see the incalculable value of these. This is an extremely fun, durable, practicable, portable, and unique method of reading. Highly recommended." – Jheff

"I think these keys are incredible and wish I had discovered them before now,
and a big thanks to Scott for calling them to our attention. Scott's book,
even though it's small, is densely packed full of ideas to get you started giving readings with this charismatic set of magical tools. Anyone with a modicum of storytelling and reading skills should be able to fly with them." – John Riggs

Just ordered it myself.

I've found that things from Scott are always exciting! Scott is a very creative, knowledgeable person -- these characteristics are also found in his works. And I'm sure that this will be no different! Can't wait to get it Smile

Had to order this, the concept of unlocking the past, present and future was terrific. The keys are great. I've never really done readings but believe this method is achievable, well that's what I'm hoping.

Same here, Michael.

Scott - do you recommend a suitably rustic key ring/fob to keep them together?

Thanks, again, everyone for your terrific emails, IMs, and posts here on the Café! The response to the Seven Keys has been incredible. I am currently considering putting together a supplement that will contain additional thoughts, ideas, and routining/effects. If you'd like me to consider inclusion of something, please let me know through a Private Message.

Mark - Funny you should ask. I've had this discussion with others privately. My preference is to either carry the keys loose (because I include my own haunted key in the mix - a similar suggestion that was made by John Riggs, by the way) or use a ball-and-chain (or something similar) with a "tag" that can be engraved in any speciality store (for use as a prediction or . . . ) Depending on the length of the chain you carry the keys upon, you could then use that same chain to turn one of the keys into a pendulum.

Of course . . . if you want to make this REALLY personal . . . have your chain long enough that you can have a chosen key worn around a person's neck and hanging over their heart . . .

I have not yet played with carrying the keys in a key wallet. However, the introduction of such a wallet would then make a nice transition into using that wallet for a later effect (e.g. converting the key wallet for use with a peek or load).

Just some quick thoughts. For those of you who have ordered, please keep the rest of us posted on your successes with The Seven Keys once you have a chance to play with them!

All my best. - Scott

Jon - Greetings and thank you for the kind comments.

So there is no confusion, I don't use a gimmicked key. I have spent a long time searching for the perfect but normal skeleton key that allows me to do the haunted key effect the good, old fashioned way. The key fits in well, in my opinion, with the other keys.

I carry them wrapped altogether in a chain (rather than having them hooked on a key ring or fob). I use that chain for a variety of things (including pendulum work). I hasten to add that you can place the chain through the base (opening) of one of the keys, hold the two ends of the chain by either hand with the key hanging down between the hands, and then do pendulum work that way, as well. You can even have the spectator hold the chain/key and watch it dip down as an indicator.

My chain also happens to be long enough that I can do my version of Fast and Loose. I say "my" version because I have one of the keys chosen by the spectator and then that key is held by the spectator inside one of the loops and the key is, miraculously, ALWAYS able to find the side that catches. When just a finger is used, the loops fails to hold fast. The key knows!

Also, for those of you who might remember the old Boy Scout effect where you place a paperclip over a knife and the paperclip then travels up and down the utensil, there is a way to do a version with the key and chain. If you will hold the key/chain as I indicated, above, and rest the free end of the key slightly against the table and leaning towards one side, practice innocently tightening and loosing the tension on the chain and you can make the key move!

Just some thoughts. Enjoy. - Scott

Well . . . a unique situation has arisen. The response to The Seven Keys has been so intense, that I only have 5 sets of keys and booklets left!

A new order has been placed and the actual keys should arrive shortly. In the meantime, I wanted everyone to know so they won't try and order and then be disappointed by having to wait. I will let everyone know when they are available, again.

Anyone who has already placed their order through Vinny's site will receive your order without having to wait.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your support. - Scott

Just got this as well. The thick booklet of ideas and tips is very well written and insightful, and I believe worth the asking price alone. The keys are gorgeous. They have a heft and an authenticity to them. This is the sort of effect/routine that could play as light or as serious as you choose.
Now appearing nightly in my basement.
