Greetings, thank you Grandpa Chet for your words. The Magic Touch was distributed to the mailing list of those who receive the monday (weekly) updates called "Have you heard?" which covers news of magic happenings, good and welfare, birthdays, broken wands, and other tidbits of information in as timely a manner as a weekly newsletter can. The Magic Touch (TMT) has been something of a dream for a long time and has finally come to fruition with this first issue and thanks to the support and jumping on board done by the contributors to it.
The original distribution list was in the high thousands and since TMT went out, the list is growing by an average of 10 subscribers a day. THANK YOU for the support of all the readers and all your kind words.
Opie, you are correct. TMT accepts contributions from anyone who wishes to submit it. Here's a few things that are a little different, though....1) there's no limit on the words for the article because TMT is not in paper print so we therefore are not limited to number of pages; 2) there's no requirement on the content of the contribution, as long as it is not questionable language or name calling to someone; 3) the contribution needs to be sent in either Word or in an e-mail so that it can be transferred over to the design program and naturally, we need to have graphics if it is a trick submission and a photo or the graphic the contributor wishes to have as the header for their column. THAT'S IT....those are all the requirements.
The first issue was dedicated to Cesareo Pelaez of Le Grand David and has several articles that people are calling interesting and good reading all covered in 17 pages sent out in a .pdf file. The cost of subscription is FREE and anyone is welcome to subscribe by sending an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you again for your kind words and as I always end my posts....remember to keep a dream in the making.
Keep a dream in the making for we create our tomorrows by what we dream today.
