I am proud to announce that I have come up with perhaps the most self-serving competition in the history of the internet. What, you ask, is this contest that has outstripped the breathtaking narcissism and solipsism of our current self-promotional culture?
Well, my contest allows you to become a certified Recognized Recommender! Yes, it’s true!
Readers who enjoyed Republic of Dirt and recommend it in a winning way will be certified as Recognized Recommenders. As Seth would say, Holy Shit! What an opportunity!
And what does it mean to be a Recognized Recommender? Well, I have SIX (6!) Genuine Republic of Dirt burlap bags to give away to the first wave (it’ll be a wave, right?) of my favourite recommendations.
Top three Recommenders get a copy of Republic of Dirt IN a Genuine Burlap Bag. That way they can hand out the book to people they love a lot or keep it so they have two because they love it that much. Next three just get a bag. They can do whatever they like with it. (I suggest displaying it prominently at public events.)
Let the Recommending begin!
Remember: I have to be see the recommendation. Written, youtubed, tattooed. Like that.
