NEW YORK (AP) - Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt is thinking really small.

It Books is collaborating with Gordon-Levitt’s online production company hitRECord on “The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories.” It Books, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishing, announced Tuesday that a series of books are planned, featuring very brief stories and illustrations submitted by the public. The first volume is scheduled for December and potential contributors can make submissions to http://hitrecord.org. Royalties will be paid for published work, but no advances.

Gordon-Levitt is known for such films as “Inception” and for the sitcom “Third Rock from the Sun.”
