Hi there magicians!

I am not a magician (though I think what you all do is pretty impressive). I'm actually a writer, and a character in my recently completed novel is an amateur magician, which is why I've popped in here to ask for some assistance.

There are two different scenes in the book where he does magic tricks (one is with cards and one is I think what you'd describe as close up magic with straw papers). Honestly, I just made them up as I wrote. Therefore, I have no clue if they are things that are actually possible to do and would really love to get your expert feedback before I query agents and--fingers crossed--get this baby published.

Note that I don't need to know how the tricks would be done, just if they can be done. So you don't have to worry about spilling any secrets.

Anyway, I'd hate to inadvertently misrepresent your craft by talking (writing?) out of my ass. So if anyone is willing to look over the scenes (only a total of 5 pages) and provide feedback, I'd be so appreciative. You can either get in touch with me here, email sarahadlerwrites(at)gmail.com or DM me on Twitter @sarahaadler.

Thank you so much in advance! I look forward to hopefully thanking a few of you in my acknowledgements section [smile]

Hi Sarah.

I'm happy to take a look. You can message me on here, or if you prefer, I think my email address comes up if you click on my profile.

One thing though - if it's not obvious in the pages I read, what is the year/decade that the story is set ?



Jim

Thank you, Jim! I just messaged you.

This is fairly contemporary, set in 2019.
