Twitter Contest

#LIVEYOURWORSTLIFE

Get your most ridiculous work stories ready! Your funniest and most absurd workplace situations can earn you fabulous prizes starting Monday, April 13, on Twitter!

Yes, the world is a seriously troubling place right now, and that’s why Uproar Books is taking a page from the darkly hilarious sci-fi satire ALWAYS GREENER and launching the #LiveYourWorstLife Contest to distract you from the real world.

If you’re creative and funny, you just might win:

  • $25 Amazon U.S. or Canada gift card (2 available)
  • Kindle eBook of ALWAYS GREENER (10 available)
  • Autographed paperback of ALWAYS GREENER (4 available)
  • The Grand Prize!

THE BIG IDEA

In ALWAYS GREENER by J.R.H. Lawless, corporations want you laughing at the downtrodden because its so annoyingly bothersome when you actually try to help them out. And so they create a smash-hit reality show called “Always Greener,” where people compete to prove they’re living the world’s worst life.

Uproar Books isn’t quite that cynical and evil just yet, but we do hope to provide a bit of levity in these chaotic times. And if it helps sell a few books at the same time, so much the better!

RULES AND PRIZES

We want stories about your most bizarre bosses, preposterous policies, and the demented demands of modern work-life. The only catch? They’ve got to be funny!
