Beet Life: A Health & Lifestyle Guide to Show Your Life Who’s Boss
By Tyler Holme
Beet Life is an absurd satire of health & lifestyle and social media influencer culture written from the perspective of a fictional health & lifestyle blogger known on Instagram as @beets_by_beth.
After receiving over 100 followers on Instagram, Beth decided to do what every extremely successful social media influencer does when they amass a huge following: write a self-help book full of unsolicited life advice for whoever will read it!
Life isn’t always easy. However, Beth has been doing GREAT at it recently. In this book, Beth offers you—her loyal #beetbabes—sage wisdom and guidance so that you can find the best version of yourself and be more like her! You will learn how to effectively improve your name to fit your true personality, how to identify which of your friends may be a sneaky snake out to sabotage you, the perfect amount of revenge to seek on a recent ex, and ultimately how to Beet Life. The book also features full-color photos of Beth (and her Domestic Lover Greg), illustrations by Beth, and some of Beth's favorite beet-based recipes.

Reviews from Fellow Authors
“A delightfully silly takedown of the social media influencer in all their vapid, deluded narcissism.”
―Andy Newton, editor of Humorist Books
“Beet Life is a hilarious send-up of a modern-day influencer. The writing is so engaging; I couldn't put it down. It's laugh-out-loud funny, and I'm sorry to say I would probably follow Beth on Instagram. I am literally going to follow the overnight oats recipe.”
―Ginny Hogan, author of I'm More Dateable than a Plate of Refried Beans
“Guess you could call me a proud #beetbabe! What an amazing book for anyone wanting to improve their lives or the lives of anybody else they barely know for really cheap without quite understanding what they’re buying or what the author is exactly saying or promoting. A must have!”
―Mike Sacks, author of Poking a Dead Frog
“Very VERY good… Beth has tapped into true life magic by positioning herself squarely at the intersection of inner radiance and root vegetables… with Beet Life, she’s shown us that viable, lasting, and quantifiable self-improvement is possible with this long-form, heartfelt guide to self-improvement that isn’t at all just vapid and hollow sentiments doubling as a calculated brand extension. It can't be ‘beet'!”
―Brian Boone, author of Great Men of Science: A Novel
“Absolutely hilarious… Beet Life is a scathing meditation on influencer culture that has just as much heart as it does humor.”
―Ethan Szlezinger, co-founder of The Whole Wheat Post
