Today I have another unboxing for you, and it is one of my favorite subscription boxes. This is August 2019 Scribbler Box, and this is my favorite subscription box and because it is just for writers. And I am a writer, and I always love all the goodies inside of these boxes. If you don't already know, there is a short story written all around this box, which I think is such a fun and a little interesting tidbit.
First, there is an art print by Lauren Davis and on the other side is the Scribbler logo. Also, in all of these Scribbler boxes, we have an exclusive chat. Next month is with Adrienne Procaccini at 47 North. Each month we are given a unique code for each of the chats, and they are available for about thirty to sixty days. I think they've been extending them throughout the years. So basically, if you can get in on the live chat and ask all of your questions, that's great! But if not, you can always listen to it later.
Adrienne is a Senior Editor with 47 North. She has acquired books in Meg Elison's Philip K Dick Award-Winning nominated The Road to Nowhere series Before joining Amazon Publishing in 2014, Adrienne acquired audio rights as Brilliance Publishing. Bringing books such as Wool by Hugh Howey, and The Martian by Andy Weir to CD for the first time which is pretty cool!
Next is the Royal Treatment refreshing Mint and Lavender tea. I love that! I am a big coffee drinker, but I do like to drink tea at night, usually if I have a writing session at night. I’m looking forward to having some.
The next item is the official Scribbler book light. It fits nicely into a book with a strong clip and flexible arm I'm so looking forward to reading with this light. I love how I can support Scribbler all the time with this.
The next item is a notebook which says 'Write On' but inside its post-its! I'm a huge post-it person whether it is with planning or plotting. And I love that it's in a cute little notebook with quite a bit of post-its and page flags as well. So that is awesome for an organizational supply lover like myself.
The writing passport for this month, which is Storytelling. Usually these are connected with the book in the box. Inside is a section on Amy Harmon’s writing career.
In each box is a Scribbler writing contest:
Write a short story intro to a story using prompt words 'casket' and 'peaches'
The favorite submission will win a bonus gift in their next box. That is pretty cool. So you write down on here a little story based on the prompt, and you could win! And also gets you thinking if you're stuck. I find that writing prompts helps jump-start any story or just any writing session.
And onto the book… The First Girl Child by Amy Harmon.
'In a time of ruins and magic, one woman's curse has the power to destroy or save'
It's also signed. And this signature is within the book, instead of a book plate, which I think is really great. I'm very excited to read this 47 North book. I’m assuming Adrienne Procaccini is the editor of this book.
The last thing in the box is the publishing process inside look. It looks as if this one's a little different.
‘Many times an author has an ability to include charts, maps, inscriptions, text message exchanges, illustrations and more as long as the editorial and marketing team agrees that it enriches the reading experience. Inside you'll note Amy's rough draft of how she envisioned her world along with the publisher's final vision.’
Inside is her original map sketch and the final map that's in the book.
On the back of the inside look, it tells you everything that's inside the box and also the theme for September, which is Endings.
This was another great box from Scribbler, and I'm so excited to continue to get these boxes. I am NOT an affiliate or anything. I buy these with my own money. I just wanted to share my love for this box.
Let me know in the comments if you love the Scribbler Box or if there is anything in this box that you would use. Or if you have any other bookish subscription boxes that you want to let me know about let me know in the comments!
