Live “Sherlock Holmes Week” Mentalism & Deduction Web Event with Joe Riggs!

That’s right friends, we will be bringing Sherlock Holmes Week to a close with some live Mentalism & Sherlockian fun! This event is open to everyone who would like to attend. I will be on video interacting with you via an open chat window visible to everyone. Whether you’re coming to interact or just watch the fun, by all means do stop by and tell your friends about it!
As many of you know from my original blog post here, I’ve sent two separate “predictions” out; one to Sherlockology and the other, a strange phrase, to The Baker Street Babes. If everything goes well, this will all culminate in an amazing tapestry of events during the webcast that should be amazing and interactive for everyone. Special guests Luke Kuhns & Elena Kitzantides will also be present, helping to choose questions and moderate, etc.The theme is, of course, Sherlock Holmes Week. The purposes are: to have some fun, answer your burning questions, and to raise awareness for The Undershaw Preservation Trust.

Live Webcast Event: Q&A, Mentalism & Deduction Demonstrations and A Cryptic Contest!

With two weeks left to Sherlock Holmes Week its time to release information on a very special live event and contest I’ve been asked to run. I’ve been contemplating this for awhile now and things are starting to get pretty exciting!
Following the revealing interview with Ross K Foad (here) a few weeks ago, I’ve been inundated with friends and fans around the world asking if I’d be prepared to do a similar live event with them. At the same time I’ve just become an ambassador for the Undershaw Preservation Trust. Seems like combining the two is perfect…
So yes, here we go! Stay with me because quite a few things are going to be happening at once to make this event the most fun it can be for all of you.

My Webcast Interview With Ross K – Very Fun & An Ending Even I Couldn’t Have Predicted!

This is the video from my recent interview from Ross K Foad. For those of you not familiar with Ross’s work he does amazing video book reviews and is part of a web mini series titled ‘No Place Like Holmes.’ He recently asked me if I would be interested in doing a webcam type interview for his show. To be quite honest, I expected the question would come that he saved for last yet I can never predict how ‘on point’ I am going to be. I certainly didn’t expect to have to be shut off for going to close to ‘home’!!!

One INTENSE Email and the Subject of my 3rd Memory Palace Lesson…

This is a rather touching email I received regarding my articles and work. It is the messages like this that inspire me daily and keep me wanting to share everything I know with the world. Rather than keep my methods and secrets to myself as too many individuals in my profession, as well as related professions, do.
However, it also contains a burning question that I have recieved over two hundred times from around the world via emails, Twitter & Facebook. This question is being answered in one of my favorite articles yet that will be out within the next couple days.

Phonetic Encoding: A Linguistic Upgrade For Your Mind Palace & Mental Hard Drive

”This is my hard-drive, and it only makes sense to put things in there that are useful. Really useful. Ordinary people fill their heads with all kinds of rubbish, and that makes it hard to get at the stuff that matters! Do you see?” -Sherlock Holmes | The Great Game (BBC Series)
