Book recommendation!!
The street smart psychic by Lisa Barretta

I bought this book this morning and havent put it down all day and have just finished it! I think most people here will love it as much as I did.

Its written by a woman who is a psychic herself, but also a psychic 'junkie'. she talks about everything, types of clients, types of readers, psychic addiction, all of her experiences, its really really good, and i learnt so much from reading it, and bits of it rang true! Its also good for seeing things from the psychics point of view, and how they think about us, and tells you how to get the best from a reading. Look it up on amazon. Im going to read it again! I think it will help a lot of us. Let me know what you think if you read it!

Don't Lick The Phones was a crime against literature. It was bad.

For me it was so trashy and bad, that it made it funny. Just what I need at the moment the way my head has been feeling Undecided

Brilliant post Eridanus, I thought the same about a lot of the characters!

Jeremy Wendle made me think of John because of the religious part, and he used to be a monk. Maybe Gypsy Gina could be Hazel? I definitely thought of Tamara as soon as they described Tatiana! It is so similar to PI, they talk about the creation of the 'Mystik' text service, and in the book they say that the psychics were asked to give phrases, and its randomly generated by computer. I think they also said something like, the people who worked on it were all just bored of standard data entry jobs or something!

Conrad Holmes is def the John Healey Charater - shirt buttoned to top, very eccentric. Front looked like a monk, back Miss Haversham - long flowing locks.
