You Can’t Stop Reading This Book May 6, 2013

Posted by nrhatch in Books & Movies, Humor.

As I mentioned last week, Susanna’s holding a contest to coincide with the e-launch of Can’t Sleep Without Sheep . . . tomorrow!

What d’ya bet Susanna’s too excited to sleep tonight?

For the contest, she asked us to write an advertising jingle designed to make readers tingle with anticipation.

The winners get prizes!
Cool prizes!

If you’re too tired to write a jingle because you suffer from insomnia, or feel there is too much jingling in the world, you can win prizes for tweeting about the book this week.  Details HERE!

There’s also a coloring contest for kids.

Yes!  There’s still time to get in on the FUN.

Here’s my jingle, sung to the tune of Swagger Jagger:

You can’t stop reading this book
Reading this book
Reading this book

You can’t stop reading this book
So get a copy now

You can’t stop counting those sheep
Counting those sheep
Counting those sheep

You can’t stop counting those sheep
So get a copy now

Can’t sleep without sheep
Can’t. Can’t.
Can’t sleep without sheep

So get a copy NOW!

(B)Aah . . . that’s better!

Sweet book and I love the jingle Nancy! Good Luck!!!

nrhatch - May 6, 2013

Thanks, Pix. This commercial makes me smile. It seemed the perfect tune with just the right amount of swagger. :mrgreen:

3. Susanna Leonard Hill - May 6, 2013

Awesome, Nancy! Clever and fun! And an accompanying video with a cow! I love it 🙂

nrhatch - May 6, 2013

Cows make for MOO~ving marketing! So do Lemurs ~ “I got to moo~ve it, moo~ve it. He’s got to moo~ve it!” :mrgreen:

Once you have the link for the e-book, I’ll add it in.

Oh you got swagger fo’ sho’! Love this!

nrhatch - May 6, 2013

Thanks, Pamela! I must admit I’ve enjoyed singing this as I swagger about the house. 😛

5. Robyn Campbell - May 6, 2013

This is tons of fun. I giggled as I watched and now I’ll be singing it the live long day. Great job!

nrhatch - May 6, 2013

Thanks, Robyn! Every time I see this commercial, it cracks me up. :mrgreen: I’m pysched to see all the FUN jingles spawned by Susanna’s contest.

Thanks, Penny. I’ll swing by to see yours soon.

8. Catherine Johnson - May 6, 2013

That is really funky, Nancy! Perfect jingle. I’ve never seen that commercial before, it’s super.

nrhatch - May 6, 2013

I figured that folks would get a kick out of that singing cow! Too bad it wasn’t a singing sheep. :mrgreen:

Glad you had a chance to enter the contest. Good luck!

Great jingle, Nancy! Susanna is a super star when it comes to engineering contests. 🙂

nrhatch - May 6, 2013

Thanks, Vivian. Susanna is a superstar ~ her contests are always FUN with great PRIZES.

10. jannatwrites - May 6, 2013

I like your jingle! And I think it’s great how you always support your author blogger friends 🙂

nrhatch - May 6, 2013

Thanks, Janna! I figure that writers who follow through the writing, editing, and publication phases deserve a SHOUT OUT when they enter the marketing arena!

And, of course, it’s easy to promote books like this one . . . FUN!

Very nice, Nancy! You have also encouraged me to take a look at e-book. I think it might be something fun for the granddaughters. I haven’t really done much with e-books for them. They might get a kick out of that! 🙂

nrhatch - May 7, 2013

Thanks, Debra. Your granddaughters can take turns “turning the page.” 😀
