After a rather intense surgery that required way too much resting, I had a lot of free time. Since I don’t do the whole relaxing thing very well, I got busy thinking about our awesome misfit community. I wanted to do more to bring us together, but for the life of me, I couldn’t figure out the perfect way to do that. During one of the afternoons when I still couldn’t drive (or do much of anything else), I contemplated subscribing to a box service. Problem is, I’m a creature of habit and wanted predictability. I was also looking for something that fed my romance novel addiction. Huzzah! The RomCrate subscription service was born.
Each monthly RomCrate box will come with 4 staples:
A romance novel.
Bath salt scented to each box’s theme.
Body butter scented to each box’s theme.
6 oz, hand-poured, soy wax candle scented to each box’s theme.
I’m also including 2 or 3 additional surprises related to each month’s theme (details to come!). That’s a total of 6 or 7 items delivered right to your door every month!
Readaholics and Badasses
RomCrateis more than a book subscription service. It's a growing community of readaholics who break rules and shatter molds. We've mastered the fine art of a well-placed f-bomb, and aren't afraid to laugh at the inappropriate. We also like to indulge in a good romance, because happy-ever-afters rock!
A Celebration of Romance
RomCrateis more than a book-of-the-month club. It’s a celebration of the romance reading community. Each box will contains items and fragrances I know you’ll enjoy, and that showcase our monthly read. So, get ready to kick back and relax, and dive into the wonderful world of romance!
Books You’ll love
I’m fortunate that my love of books led to a career in publishing. Now, with RomCrate, I get to share that love with you! From edgy contemporaries to sweeping historicals, I’ll personally handpick just the right romance for us to enjoy.
Small Business Appreciation
As a small business owner, I enjoy showcasing inspiring entrepreneurs. Whether it’s homemade, hilarious, inappropriate, yummy, or relaxing, I’m busy scouring Etsy, Instagram, and Pinterest and local businesses for the perfect goodies for RomCrate!
Are the items in your photos the stuff I’ll receive? Not necessarily. Some might be included, like bath salt, body butter, and a candle, but the book will be different each month—and I don’t want to ruin the surprise items!
When does RomCrate launch? I’m aiming for a late Spring/early Summer 2019 launch. Hang tight for just a bit longer, and don’t forget to follow MM on Facebook for updates and all that good stuff!
How much does the subscription cost? Good question. RomCrate is still in its infancy. But, I can tell you I plan to keep the subscription price super affordable because I live the financial struggle.
If I buy a box/subscription as a gift, can I personalize it? Absolutely! I’ll gladly include a personalized note in the gift box.
When will you ship your boxes? Boxes will ship out between the 16th and 18th of each month. For instance, July boxes will go out between the 16th and 18th of June.
Will shipping be included in the price? Yes, for U.S. orders. I’m also looking into discounted international shipping.
