Would you like me to fly to you, take you out to lunch (or cook you lunch?) and geek out Herbie-style?
Well I'm making that happen for one lucky Herbie!
I'll fly anywhere in the world to meet you and hang out. (The trip will take place in early 2014 at a mutually agreeable time).
For a chance to win, share a picture of yourself with a copy of my new book on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Use the hashtag #HHLL and include @happyherbivore or tag Happy Herbivore (where applicable) to ensure we see it for capturing. A public search may not show every single update, and some contestants may be filtered from search for quality.
Here are four examples from Herbies:
(For those of you who have already received the book and posted a picture on Facebook, I have your name down -- you don't have to repost, but you're always welcome to).
