NOTE: THIS OFFER HAS EXPIRED – FOODIST Book Trailer + Chance to Win a Trip to SF and More Prizes!

by | Apr 15, 2013


PLEASE NOTE: ALL THESE OFFERS HAVE NOW EXPIRED. THANK YOU.

I started Summer Tomato four years ago with a single goal: to help as many people as possible stop dieting. Not only does dieting not work for long-term weight control, it also makes your life suck. And that is unacceptable.

Foodist, my book coming out on May 7, is the ultimate manifestation of my mission to debunk the lies of the dieting industry and give people a real blueprint to get healthy and eat amazing food. I’d like as many people as possible to read it, and for that I need your help.

To hit a best-sellers list in 2013 I need to convince as many of you as possible to pre-order Foodist. Since ebook versions don’t count as much toward sales rankings as physical books, I also need to encourage as many hardcover orders as possible.

If you’ve considered buying Foodist for yourself or anyone else you care about, now is definitely the time. I’ve put together a ton of awesome prizes for pre-ordering multiple hardcover copies, including a chance to win a free trip to San Francisco for the private Foodist book launch party on May 9 (!!!). Trust  me, you’ll definitely want to be there.

There are some fantastic deals in here, and I hope you find them worth your while.

ENTRIES FOR THE CONTEST TO WIN A TRIP TO SF MUST BE RECEIVED BY MONDAY, APRIL 22, AT 3PM PST (NOW EXPIRED). See “Buy 25 Books” below for more details.

ALL OTHER OFFERS EXPIRE ON FRIDAY MAY 3, AT 3PM PST.

Unfortunately all shipping is limited to within the US at this time (though you’re welcome to use something like this). Other restrictions apply for the contest (see below).

PLEASE NOTE: ALL THESE OFFERS HAVE NOW EXPIRED. THANK YOU.

Buy 1 book ($17)

If one hardcover copy is all you care to have or can afford, I still appreciate your early purchase tremendously. As a thank you, I’m offering everyone who buys a hardcover copy the opportunity to win a personalized, signed copy of Foodist (otherwise only available to those who buy 25 copies). Just take a picture of yourself with the book the week of launch (May 7-14) and post it on Instagram with the hashtag #foodist. Two winners will be selected.

Buy 2 books ($34)

Buy one book for yourself and one for your mom (moms love Foodist) and you can join me for a live two hour Q&A (virtual, of course) exclusive for people who pre-order multiple copies. You’ll have my undivided attention for two hours and I’ll answer any and all questions you come up with. Since only foodists will be participating, we’re sure to get some excellent questions. You’ll also be able to enter the Instagram competition.

Bought two copies? Just fill out this form and you’re good to go.

Already bought a copy and just bought another one? No worries, just fill out the same form and include both order numbers.

Buy 3 books ($51)

Now we’re getting to the good stuff. Buy just three copies of Foodist and you’ll get to enter the Instagram competition, join the Q&A and you’ll also receive a free Mercado farmers market bag from Quirky ($25 value). I’ve been using my Mercado bags for almost a year now and have yet to have a tomato casualty at the farmers market. This is the perfect gift to kick off your new foodist healthstyle.

Just fill out the same form.

Buy 10 books ($170)

Buy ten books for friends, family, co-workers, or an art project and you’ll receive the following:

  • A signed copy of Foodist ($17 value + pure awesomesauce)
  • A Fitbit Zip—pedometers are indispensable for a foodist ($60 value)
  • Mercado farmers market bag from Quirky ($25 value)
  • Free 30 minute Clarity call with me ($125 value) to chat about anything you want
  • Invitation to attend 2 hour Q&A
  • Chance to enter the Instagram competition

Bought 10 copies? Fill out this form (yes, all the forms are the same)

Buy 25 books ($425)

If you pre-order 25 hardcover copies of Foodist for your company or organization, or just to test your book stacking skills, you have a chance to win the grand prize: a free trip to San Francisco to attend the private Foodist launch party with me and all my favorite food and tech people here in the city.

To enter the contest just fill out the form, including the bonus question “Why are you so excited about sharing FOODIST?” (I assume you won’t be reading all 25 copies yourself). You must live in the US or Canada, and be at least 21 years old to enter. Three judges will choose the winning response. The deadline for entering is Monday, April 22, at 3pm PST.

PLEASE NOTE: THE TRIP TO SF CONTEST IS NOW EXPIRED. HOWEVER YOU CAN STILL RECEIVE THE OTHER GIFTS BELOW, AND EVEN ATTEND THE PARTY (LIMIT 4 PARTICIPANTS – AIRFARE AND HOTELS NOT INCLUDED) IF YOU PURCHASE 25 COPIES AFTER THE DEADLINE.

In addition to an entry to the contest, for pre-ordering 25 books you will also receive:

  • A personalized, signed copy of Foodist—I’m really not doing a lot of these (priceless)
  • A Fitbit Zip ($60 value)
  • 2 Mercado farmers market bags from Quirky—I always use two when I shop ($50 value)
  • 2 free 30 minute Clarity calls with me ($250 value)
  • Invite to attend Q&A

Good luck to you and I look forward to reading your entries and seeing your wacky photos.

Huge thanks to Toi for helping me put this awesome book trailer together!

    Any plans for Foodist to be coming out in audio?

  2. Jane Tierney says:

    I am anxiously awaiting my pre-order from Amazon. Does this count towards prizes. I’ve followed your website a long time and excited about the book. Good luck on your new and happy marriage! Jane

    • Darya Rose says:

      If you ordered more than one copy all you have to do is fill out the form. If you only ordered one you can enter the Instagram competition when it starts (May 7-14) or you can order more and include both order numbers in the form to be eligible for the other prizes. Thanks for ordering!

  3. Eva says:

    Any chance for Canadians to get in on the grand prize? If we have a US PO box to ship the books to?

  4. Andrea says:

    Congrats on the new book, and your small start towards doing the Tim Ferris style book pre-order giveaways. Glad to see that book trailers are catching on!

  5. Shannon C says:

    Congratulations, and can’t wait to receive my book! Sorry I couldn’t order more than 1 ;(

  6. Denise Wagner says:

    Just preordered my copy! Can’t wait to get it!!

  7. Carolina says:

    Does it count if a order a hardcover on top of the kindle version I already pre order? I don’t live in US so it was easier to get the kindle version, but I could order one hardcover as a very nice gift to a friend in US :)

  8. Amit says:

    Hey Darya,

    Congratulations! On the book & the wedding :)

    Looking forward to picking this up on iPad and reading it alongside the 4 Hour Chef!

    Saludos from Chile! We have some of the world’s freshest produce. You and Kevin (there’s a booming start-up scene too) should visit sometime.

    Cheers,

    Amit

    • Darya Rose says:

      I’ve been trying to visit Chile and can’t wait until I actually make it (my last trip was cancelled because of the earthquake). I hope you like the book!

      • Amit says:

        Hope you get to visit soon. Me (@amitsonawane) and my gf would love to show you some of the hidden food/wine spots here in Santiago and around. Yes, I am stoked to read the book!

  9. I just pre-ordered your book! I’m super excited about it, and can’t wait to read it! My wife and I are both fit, well, her more than I, I could loose an extra 15 pounds. It’s hard to diet, or to become a full-time vegetarian, so I’m excited about learning your tricks on eating healthy. I’m also going to pre-order one for my mother in law, and we all love your website by the way! Good luck!

  10. Catheroo says:

    I think it was about three years ago when my husband sent me a link to your site with a note that said, “Here’s a blog about how just eating real food and creating healthy habits can help you stop dieting.”

    I am so looking forward to reading “Foodist.” Ridiculously so.

    Congratulations on your marriage and the book!

  11. I would love to buy 25 copies of your book and have a chance to meet with you and your team. Unfortunately, I live in the Montreal area and all my friends and relatives are French. Hey, nobody’s perfect! ;)

    For sure, I will buy your book, and try to inspire all my friends with it. I’m sure we, French but into the American way of life, need a tool like this.

    Also, I want to tell you that I just love that you’ve put Toaster, your lovely dog, into the video. You and Kevin are animal lovers just like me and Elaine. Our terrible little Yorkshire, named Sumo, died last year and we feel sad every day since then.

    I even dedicated my first novel to my late dog! (Double Life – The JFK Assassinations on Amazon.com)

    Thanks, and continue to take good care of Toaster… and why not Kevin too!

  12. JEN says:

    Hi Darya,

    I’ve followed your blog for a long time. I ordered the Mercado the day it came out and just pre-ordered copies of your book!

    Thanks for all the great info and congrats on the recent wedding!

    -Jen

    p.s. Aaaany chance you’ll have a way for the non-25ers to win a spot at your launch party? ;)

  13. Monica says:

    Loved the concept + execution of a “book preview”. It came out lovely and now I’m *extra* pumped for my preorder copy of Foodist.

    Also: happy to see Toaster got a cameo. :)

  14. Love your website and very much look forward to Foodist. I’m a cardiologist with a passion for helping people get healthier. Your message is spot on – no more dieting – eat real food – move more. Keep spreading the word…not only does it work, it is the only thing that really does. I’m buying 10 copies to share with my patients. Best of luck with the book launch. I know it will be a huge success.

  15. Cathy says:

    I preordered my copy, but came back here today to preorder 10. I want to spread the Foodist joy and help my friends be healthy.

  16. Cody says:

    I’ll buy 2 copies one for my mom and myself. If you can tell your husband to search for my application I would be honored. Keep writing the more information the better.
