Here’s the trick that made me think…what if? Sure I’m very much aware that it is a trick. But this trick is so good that I started to play around with the thought, what if? What if David Copperfield is a true magician in disguise, what if all his tricks and illusions where just a way of fooling us into believing that he’s ‘just’ an illusionist?

If you haven’t read the prologue from the beginning then start here

After she hanged up her phone she called her boss. The reaction she got from her boss was hardly what she would have expected. “Are you crazy woman?” he asked her. “Do you even know who Avid Goldfield are?”
“Not exactly” she answered him. “First time I saw him was at that street performance I just mentioned. Her boss could almost not contain himself “He’s one of our times biggest illusionist and he has never before even given as much as an interview. Theres almost no information at all about him the man behind the illusions. All that is known is that he’s extraordinarily good on the stage, he’s one of a kind!”
She started to realize how big this story could be. Her boss told her to take as much time as she needed and he would personally make sure to cancel any appointments she might have. She were supposed to ask mr Goldfield if he would allow an article series with sneak peaks on the memoire and some articles about his life.
After hanging up on my boss I called Avid Goldfield right away. He answered instantly at the first signal “Tomorrow we meet at dawn at shall we say ‘undisclosed location’?” She snorted loudly and answered “If you continue to read my mind there wont be an interview at all. It is  highly inappropriate and not nice at all.” He laughed like a boy and said “You would never allow yourself to miss this opportunity, besides your way to curious right wish is one of the main reasons I picked you for this, but I promise, I’ll stop answering ahead of time and let a normal conversation lead to the answers.”

If you haven’t read the prologue from the beginning start here

His reason was strangely soothing, so clinical and obvious that it almost felt like she was the unnatural one who ‘couldnt’ read thoughts. “Is it something you’ve been thought or something you were borned with?” she asked, her curiosity had always been greater than her self-preservation.
It’s not always that healthy to be so curious, but in her job a great portion of curiosity was only a merit.
“I shall answer all your questions during the interview, it’s not very polite to question someone over the phone” he said. She took out her pocket calendar from her purse to check for a suitable time and date. “Lets see, how long do you think the interview will take?” she asked him, while shifting through the pages in the calendar to the closest date with some free time. After a couple of minutes of silence he answered “Not more than approximately a week I would think.” She almost swallowed her own tongue “Not more then a week?!” she echoed “You want a freaking book written or what?!”
“You could say that” he answered “I want my memories printed” Now she was certain, he was a certified moron. “I’ll have to check with my boss if this can be manageable, thats way longer than I would have anticipated” she said. “Ok fine, call me back when you know for certain that you can do the interview.”

About the Prologue January 19, 2010

There’s a page on my blog named “Prologue” where I keep adding the first part of my book. This part is in 5 1/2 A4 pages. I’m adding a little bit each day. The reason it takes time is since I started writing the book in Swedish wish is my native language. But when starting this blog I decided to write it in English. Therefore at the moment, I’m translating the text and that’s why even though I got a lot of materials I add just a little more each day.
But even if I didn’t have to work on translating I would probably not post that much more each day anyways. I want this project to take it’s due time.

In the future I will add some thoughts that went through my mind when I came up with the idea of “Avid Goldfield – It’s not an illusion!” stay tuned to find out what. 😉

A little bit about this Blog January 18, 2010

Updates on this site aren’t as obvious as on other blogs where main focus lies in the number of posts. In this blog the number of posts might not be as frequent as the number of updates I do on the actual book project. I’ve decided to write the book through pages on the blogg. And the posts are just for keeping a diary on the progress and for expressing some thoughts I might have or as in this instance deliver news or information about the project.

I feel like an infant blogging since its my first attempt. But I’m having lots of fun with this and learning the other Social Medias out there. If you have any ideas on what I can do to promote my book, please let me know. Im eager to learn.

I have a mentor in Social Media, he’s the one who inspired me to write this book for free online. ^^ You can find him here https://twitter.com/sliceonline

My goal is to update the book with a minimum of “a sentence a day” so check the prologue page and in the future the chapter pages that will come.

And with that I bid you all a Good Night cause here in Sweden where I live, its pretty late already.

With Regards – Patrik

Harder then I thought… January 16, 2010

…more fulfilling then I ever would have imagined.

A lot of time that I would rather have used to translate the first part of my book into English has been put on learning the medias I’m using. I hade planned to relax around 21.00 and now its already 23.41 and I haven’t even been able to get the full prologue up. But as soon as I’ve learned the medias ill probably become a little faster in posting on the actual book.

Its not just a process of learning how to use the medias, there’s also the language barrier. I could have chosen to write it all in Swedish, I know that, but id much rather prefer to make it available for as many as possible.

Anyways I’m going to logg off for today now. See you all tomorrow.

This adventure has started. Bare with me as I try to learn all that I need to learn to make my blogging effective. Then I will start posting the prologue. Hopefully the prologue will hit the pages no lather then the beginning of February.
Personally I think this is so exciting. Im going to write a book here for all to see, for FREE. Please, don’t be afraid to correct my spelling and grammar, English isn’t my native language so sometimes I stumble…alot!

I hope you all will join me on this journey into the unknown…
