New to our publishing team is John Michlig who will use the latest tools to make the digital Handbook as interactive as possible. John has been involved with a broad range of creative pursuits in and around the industry as readily shown on his website, www.fullyarticulated.com/. To quote John. "I'm an author/writer, editor, producer, product developer, and marketing consultant. I help tell stories of all kinds..." Just the kind of creative versatility many toy inventors apply to their own endeavors.
Since we will not have the static constraints of ink on paper, here is an invitation to you, Toyland inhabitants. As we did in the Handbook and our previous books, our reporting will again rely heavily on contributions of leading professionals like you. So e-mail me your favorite "toystory" in 3 or 4 paragraphs or descriptions of your hottest links to email@example.com.
We just might plug it into an appropriate section of our updated edition, citing you or honoring your anonymity as the source (in the case of juicy horror stories.)
Naturally, the writing team reserves the right to edit and use your thoughtful, insightful, and helpful experiences under the famous NY Times motto, "All the News That's Fit to Print". With your input, we will make the new Toy and Game Inventor's Handbook bigger and better!
