Kate Bornstein Seeking Input for New Book -- Please
Forward



Hello. Kate Bornstein here with a survey request. I'm sorry if you've
received this
email more than once. I'm trying to get it out as far and as wide as I can.
Please do
*not* send me a completed survey by hitting "REPLY" to this email.
Instructions for
sending completed surveys follow.
I've begun writing a new book: "Hello, Cruel World: 101 Alternatives to Teen
Suicide," and I'm looking for input. As I did in my last book, "My Gender
Workbook",
I'll be selectively quoting folks throughout the book. Kindly fill out this
survey and
return it to me at hellocruelworld2004@earthlink.net. I'd appreciate you
passing
this request on to any persons, newsgroups, blogs, websites or mailing lists
that
might be appropriate.
Thanks very much.
Kate
