Hello, and welcome to the real secrets of magic podcast. I'm your host, Brandon Love. And on today's show, I've got my friend, Mr. Geo Derice, also known as The Book Doula. He calls himself this because he helps people come up with an idea and write their own books so they have it in their hands with his program called First Book Done, which is definitely making magic.

What we're talking about is, is making magic and learning about the practices that magic makers like...
Brandon: [00:00:25] James, thanks so much for carving out some time and, and agreeing to be a part of the show today.
James: [00:00:30] Brandon, I would always carve out time for you. Thank you.
Brandon: [00:00:35] You're busy guy. And you've got so many things in the works right now. For those people who are just tuning in to the show or are here for the first time, this show is not about the secrets of magic tricks. Instead we're talking about the secrets of magic. And I believe magic is not just limited to illusions and sleight of hand and conjuring, but of course, magic is the creation of stuff, making [00:01:00] things out of nothing. and it could look like all sorts of different stuff.
