If you follow me over on Twitter, you may have noticed some suspicious activity going on over the past few weeks – it’s time to reveal all!
I’ve been plotting away for quite a while now and I’m so incredibly excited to reveal – BOOK HOOKED BOX!
This business is something I’ve been thinking about for a long time and I’ve finally been inspired to jump head first into it by my friend Fiona, who recently launched her bookish designs business Felfira Moon Designs! Fi has been such a big help to me and I’m incredibly grateful for her time and effort in helping me create my logo design and also an exclusive bookmark (see below). I hope you love it as much as we do!
Now this is where you guys come in – Book Hooked Box is not yet funded and this is where Fi truly inspired me. I will be launching a Kickstarter very soon and I am hoping you will support me in this endeavour.
If you’ve been online in the last year, you might have noticed a considerable amount of subscription boxes popping up. They cater to various hobbies and interests, including books. I’ve tried book subscription boxes myself and I’ve experienced the excited wait for the box to arrive and the mystery of what could be inside. Whilst they are extremely enjoyable, you certainly can pay quite a hefty price and often end up not using those extra little items.
This is where I come in. My idea is to create a box that gives you those specific items that you love and use each month, whilst keeping the price down and being value for money. I’ve chosen items that will create a relaxing and indulgent experience whilst cosying up with your new book!
The box will feature a different theme every month and will revolve around the book included. UK shipping is included in the price.
Inside there will be:
- A new release YA hardback book.
- A 200ml glass jar candle or a bath/body product.
- A cute little box of luxury chocolates.
- A unique hot chocolate drink.
- A themed piece of artwork.
- Information letter.
We may include other bookish items as time goes on and/or as an exclusive gift!
The following rewards are for the Kickstarter so far.
Early Bird Box: You will receive the January ‘Fairytales’ box at the early bird rate of £24.
Box & Exclusive Gift: You will receive the January ‘Fairytales’ box and an exclusive limited edition ‘Alice In Wonderland’ themed bookmark at the rate of £28. (see picture below)
If the kickstarter is successful and we reach our goal, we will be launching the box in January with the theme ‘Fairytales’.
Subscriptions will open in December, in time for the January box release.
If you choose to donate and pick a reward that includes the January box, you will automatically receive the ‘Fairytales’ box and any other reward that you have backed will be inside the box.
Boxes will ship beginning to mid January, dependent on the book delivery time from the publisher.
I am already in contact with publishers and suppliers for the following months in 2019 and I am currently reviewing book proofs to include in those boxes. I am so excited about the January book and hope that I will get the chance to share it with you!
For now, please go ahead and follow the Twitter and Facebook pages for Book Hooked Box and share them as much as possible – I truly appreciate it! We will be updating the pages frequently so you know what’s happening. We are currently working on the website and it will be launched if the Kickstarter is a success.
I really hope you’re just as excited as me! Please let me know your thoughts!
