In HERE COMES TROUBLE I tell 24 true stories about my life and how I became who I am today. (If you haven't had a chance to get it yet, the chapter "Tet" is available free online, as is an excerpt from the first chapter published by the Guardian.)
But here's the thing: everybody has stories like these to tell. It's just that most of us never get the chance. That's why, now that my stories have appeared, I want to create a collection of the stories by the readers of HERE COMES TROUBLE.
I'll choose 24 reader-submitted stories for this collection, and find a publisher to put it out in 2012. Interested? Here's what you need to know:
To submit, just paste your story into an email and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. It's that easy! Thanks, and I look forward to reading the most important stories from your lives!
Want Michael Moore to bring his book tour for HERE COMES TROUBLE to your living room to read to and talk with your family and friends? In the past Mike has visited bookstores, college halls and 12,000-seat hockey arenas. Now he wants to come to your house! Here's how it works: if you're in the lower 48 U.S. states and want to host a date on his Living Room Tour, just send email to email@example.com, including your city and state and contact information. One or more winners will be drawn at random on October 1, 2011, with possible further drawings at future dates.
The winner(s) will be notified within a week of the drawing. If you're chosen, we'll work with you to set up a date. Whether you want to invite your conservative brother-in-law, and whether you let him know who's going to be there ahead of time, is up to you.
