“Sell Your Soul” Contest Results


When I came up with the idea for the “Sell Your Soul” contest, my tongue was planted firmly in my cheek, to the point where I looked like a Major League baseball coach contemplating bringing in the closer. I figured people would come up with funny, ironic, or just plain twisted responses (“A puppy!” “A better soul — this one’s used!”). And some people did.

But for the most part, people took this very, very seriously, and some of the answers were humbling, inspiring, and truly selfless. I was blown away by how passionate y’all are, about your families, your friends, and the world at large.

Damn. I thought this was going to be a bit of fun, and you guys made me think, instead.


I’m not going to pick out a few of the best, as I originally planned. Instead, I’m just going to give everyone who entered the contest a free copy of Unsoul’d.

That’s right. You all win.

Congratulations. And if you commented on the contest thread, keep an eye on your email inbox for details on how to get your free ebook.

Thanks, everyone.

    Thank you =)

  2. Barry, you rock.

  3. Thank you! I felt a bit bad when my answer was super flippant and so many other people’s soul selling price was a selfless request. Very excited about this book, and can’t wait to read it!
