Today, April 2, is Hans Christian Anderson’s birthday as well as International Children’s Book Day. So for the entire month of April, we’re celebrating the joy of children’s books by putting Mammoth is Mopey on sale for only $10! This offer is exclusive to web orders from this site, and as always, all orders come with a free copy of the ebook edition and its expanded educational appendix. Head to the Order page to pick up your copy.
It’s hard to believe it’s been a whole year since the Mammoth is Mopey Indiegogo campaign reached its funding goal and we got our labor of love printed to share with the world.
To celebrate, we are going to give you gifts! During each of the next four weeks in May, we will be giving away cool prizes to our fans. Entering to win is simple. All you have to do is share your love for Mammoth is Mopey on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram using the hashtag #MopeyBirthday. At the end of each week, we will randomly select a winner from among these social media posts. You can send our friend Mammoth a birthday greeting, share a selfie with your copy of the book, help us spread the word to new readers, or anything else you can think of to celebrate. Just be sure to share it in a public post so we can find it!
We’re also discounting the hardcover and ebook versions of Mammoth is Mopey! Hardcovers are $12 and ebooks are $5 all month long!
So… what can you win? Here’s a breakdown of the weekly prizes.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the last year, and good luck during this month’s contests!
Valentine’s Day is coming up, and while Mammoth is Mopey is a perfect gift for the dinosaur enthusiast in your life, we’ve cooked up a little extra way to share the love. From now until Valentine’s day, every hardcover copy of Mammoth is Mopey comes with a Dinosaur Hearts button set mounted on a Valentine’s Day card. The Dinosaur Heart designs are a popular set in David’s on-line shop, and for this promotion, we’ve added a brand-new fifth design: joining blue Torvosaurus, green Parasaurolophus, orange Diplodocus, and red Triceratops is purple Pachycephalosaurus. They’re perfect for dino-fans of all ages.
If you’ve already got the book but would like to purchase a button set on its own, we’ve got you covered. It’s available on its own on our order page.
The sets are currently in production, so all orders will begin shipping during the week of January 24. To ensure delivery by Valentine’s Day, please place domestic orders by February 9 and international orders by January 31.
On October 14, 2015 in the US, the National Park Service and American Geoscience Institute will host the fifth annual National Fossil Day, “a celebration organized to promote public awareness and stewardship of fossils, as well as to foster a greater appreciation of their scientific and educational value.” That matches up quite nicely with what we hope Mammoth is Mopey does, so we’re taking this opportunity to directly support the scientific efforts that inspired our book and continue to stoke our imaginations.
From October 14 through October 16, 2015, we are pledging to donate half of all hardcover and ebook sales here at our website to the Jurassic Foundation, a nonprofit organization that has been supporting scientific research on dinosaurs since 1998. As you can see by perusing past grantees, the foundation supports young researchers from around the world. With $7.50 of every hardcover book and $3.50 of every ebook going to the Jurassic Foundation, we can make a significant donation. It’s a great chance to get a jump on the holiday gift season, too!
