MyMagic eNewsletter #695
July 25, 2018
For the past forty years I have been the “finger guy.” There is no doubt in my mind that if I did not play with, create and hone my Finger Fantasies act and the many other routines and techniques using my hands and fingers I would have just been another “card guy.”
Well, after years of work I collected all my published and unpublished finger magic into one book. It is the definitive and likely my last word on the subject.
When I first started doing finger magic I was dismissed as a novelty and not a magician. Some thought I was a weird kid with deformed fingers and joints. There were discussions at some of the contests I competed in whether it was even magic.
It was a struggle to get respect and explain that I was using magic principles and techniques to accomplish the magic. Over the years I slowly saw other magicians add finger tricks and gags into their acts and I hope that one day finger magic will become a category like cards and coins…
At Magic Live I will officially launch my new book Finger Fantasies: Expanded Edition and a special Collector’s Limited Edition.
Finger Fantasies: Expanded Edition:
The book includes my out of print Finger Fantasies and Twisting Arm Illusion books and my very hard to get Finger Secrets book. It also includes most of the finger magic I contributed to various magazines and books as well as a few routines I never tipped before.
It is a 136-page, perfect-bound book with more than 90 illustrations and photographs. It will prepare you to do truly impromptu magic.
I will be able personally autograph each copy, on request. Please let me know who to autograph it to in the comments section of your order.
Get Finger Fantasies: HERE.
If you don’t care about autographs and prefer ordering from Amazon, it is now available at Amazon US, UK, DE, CA, FR, etc.
Finger Fantasies: Limited Edition:
Since I consider this my legacy book I decided to offer a special collector’s hard-cover edition.
Although the contents are the same, the collector’s edition has a different cover, is printed on thick high-gloss coated paper, is limited to 150 numbered and signed copies and includes my Finger Fantasies and Twisting Arm Illusion DVDs (a $50 value).
Get the Limited Edition: HERE.
If you still have any doubts about getting a copy and want to know more… I am offering you a free pdf that includes my introduction and the Table of Contents.

NOTE: I received a limited number of soft-covers today and can ship now. The hard-covers are expected to arrive tomorrow. Depending on demand it might take a few days to pack and ship all the books.
Two more things:
This is your last chance to sign up for the free webinar I am sponsoring by Eric Anderson about how to grow your magic business by raising your rates and booking more shows. As I wrote before the advice and ideas can be applied to any business.
It takes place on Thursday at 7pm Eastern Time. In addition to the planned webinar Eric agreed to answer all your questions (within reason). The free event should last from 75-90 minutes. And you never know, I might make a cameo.
To sign up go: HERE.
Comix Mohegan Sun Show:
If you missed me and Rocco in Long Island last Sunday (was an excellent and fun sold-out show) you get a second chance.
This time we will be joining Jim Spinnato in his weekly Magic Matinee show at the Comix Night Club at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut.
The show starts at 5pm on Sunday July 29.
