Thanks to Bobby and Paolo for these kind words. For those that don't know, Bobby was a great help as I was constructing some of the handling.

I am very happy that so many people responded favorably to this routine. I wish I had ideas like this all the time. Being a wallet junkie, I recently purchased the Stealth Assassin (I love this thing) and am experimenting doing ET with biz cards. If anyone is interested, they can get this throug me or just go to Penguin.

Many of you are aware of a charity called "Relay for Life," which is a community focus to whip the disease of cancer. I usually give some of my proceeds for any sale I do to some worthy cause, but I don't publicize it (though some of you know that). With that said, I want to offer my routine "ET Q&A" as way for you to purchase a routine I am very proud of, but at the same contribute to the cause of fighting cancer and supporting Relay for Life. I suspect folks in the USA know all about this great organization, but I suspect that all of us have been affected by this nasty disease.

To that end, I will donate 100% of every purchase of "ET" (out of $30) to Relay for Life until May 22. I will provide a report to all purchasers of the manuscript of the final totals (and to anyone else who is interested). My goal is to raise $750, so that would mean 25 of you would purchase this manuscript between now and 5/22/15. If you are interested in reviews on the routine, please visit http://ETQandA.blogspot.com

I mean exactly what I say...I will donate every penny of your purchase made between now and 5/22 to Relay for Life, and I hope in return you will get a piece of mentalism you will be proud to perform.

And of course, if you like the routine, I hope you will give it a shout-out on Café.

I received a donated copy of the ET Q and A as part of RedDevil's cancer awareness project and fundraiser. I reviewed it on the thread in Penny, and I feel it appropriate to add the review here, as well:

Obviously, I'm touched by the generosity of the project. And I'm honored to be one of the recipients of the generosity of several members of the Café. I had heard of RedDevil's approach to the Q and A, wherein the participants themselves provide an accurate reading for the querent. I thought it was a great idea, and wondered how he would go about it.

Well, the answer is contained in this manuscript. It is a robust, workable, repeatable, solution. This is one of those "social" or "conversational" mentalism pieces where the interactions and conversation are as important as the effect itself.

In my opinion, the Q and A scenario set up here is so powerful that it stand on its own as a fun parlor game. With the additional techniques employed, the game can be managed, in order to guide the participants to provide an insightful reading. On top of that, there is a strong finish delivered by the performer. But the structuring is such that this payoff builds off of the work of the spectators. The feeling of the climax is not so much "look at me" but "look at what we did!" This concept is extremely well structured.

I really value these sorts of conversational/social/game type approaches to mentalism. I often feel that certain approaches to mentalism in casual situations or among friends can violate the implied social contract of those situations. This approach navigates those waters nicely, since the techniques are employed in order to better facilitate the conversation, and empower others. This takes the heat off of the techniques and brings a credibility to the whole process.

Just the act of reading this manuscript took my thinking to a new level. I don't post reviews often, and I don't post them unless I mean them. Even for free stuff. But this one is a powerhouse for those that like to facilitate fun, interesting, provocative, or fascinating conversations, which allow the performer to shine by allowing the entire group to shine.

The ET process is inherently improvisational, which, to me, is a great thing. It opens the door wide for synchronicity, but the structure is so solid that the chance of failure is entirely eliminated. This approach to reading/Q and A makes me want to go get into small social situations! And that is really saying something!

I like this effect and the thinking behind it. The ET Q and A is a smart piece of work. I'd say it ranks up there with Bob Cassidy's "____/_____" and Annemann's "A ________ and the ______" yet it also brings something new to the table.

The manuscript states that this is not designed for a showpiece on stage. However, it seems to me, that with a little thought this could play quite well on stage.

Thanks again to all involved in this. It is a good project on so many different levels!

Sincerely,
Scotty

Michael Murray just pitched in on the "Mentalism against Cancer" campaign!

Michael contacted me this morning to let me know he is donating free copies of his wonderful ATM, Tattle Tailed, Brave New World, and Springboard to anyone who purchases a copy of ET Q&A from me now until the end of the month!!!

Thus, for your purchase of $30.00, you will get ET Q&A AND all 4 routines from Michael Murray AND every single penny of the purchase price will be donated to Relay for Life/American Cancer Society!

In order to receive the five PDF's, just purchase from http://ETQandA.blogspot.com, and I will send you the five PDF's manually. You will receive some wonderful mentalism, and you will know your money went to a great cause...Smile

This is just another example of how generous members of this community truly are. Thank you, Michael Murray!

Super happy that RedDevil has now allowed me to add this wonderful routine to the MindFX product range. He constantly amazes me with his out of the box thinking and this is right up my street, plus he is a super lovely guy too!

Best Wishes Michael
As a mentalist you must always ask yourself what if! And throughout your life you should seek to ask and answer this question over and over again, only then will your wildest dreams become a reality!

Merry Christmas, everyone. I want to give out a free ebook as a gift to pay it forward...

I no longer market my mentalism ebooks through websites or other vendors: (TITE, Operation Gemini, ET Q&A, or 777), though people still reach out to me for PayPal purchases from time to time. (reddevilmentalism@g.m.a.i.l.c.o.m.)

With that said, I would like to give away one of each of my four ebooks as a Christmas gift to four people! I really enjoyed writing all of these books and perhaps there are those here who have arrived recently who have never heard of them. I owe a great debt of gratitude to people who have helped me over the years in some way: Bob Cassidy, Peter Turner, Michael Murray, Rasp, Pablo, Andrew Brown, Atlas, Madison Hagler, and many more who contributed to editing or concepts for the books.

So here's the deal to get a free e-book...Post to one of my ebook threads a list of 3 Café members who have helped you in some way in the past year and say thank you. That's it. On Christmas day, I will send a copy of one of my books to four of the posters (one book per poster) who took the time to say thank you.

Always pay it forward and Merry Christmas!
