Go Indie Now! Bibliotherapy Box

EDIT: Since the writing of this article, Go Indie Now! book box has become the Literary Vacation Club. You can visit their all-new website at: https://www.literaryvacationclub.com/

Okay, I’ve been sitting on this super-fun announcement for a while now, and I’m so thrilled that I can finally share the good news without spoiling anything. Earlier this year, Ashley Nestler, the founder and CEO of the Go Indie Now! book box subscription service contacted me and asked to feature The Cogsmith’s Daughter (Desertera #1) in her September Alternative Realities box. Of course, I said yes!

So what is the Go Indie Now! box? It’s a book box subscription service (like OwlCrate) that sends readers a new book (or two) each month, along with a host of other really fun goodies! But here’s the catch: it only features independently published novels! Being an indie author herself, Ashley wanted to create a way for readers discover professional, well-written indie books (and help deserving authors reach new fans, too!).

What I love about Go Indie Now! is that Ashley has focused on making it a bibliotherapy box. As it says on the Go Indie Now! website:

“We are all about mental and emotional healing through literature, while also promoting the makers movement — a movement that promotes handmade items and artisans.”

Each box features at least one item that relates to each of the five senses. Here’s the full list of items that featured in the September Alternative Realities box (this represents The Full Scoop, General Fiction plan):

Ashley is one of the kindest, most generous people I’ve ever met. I’m not promoting her Go Indie Now! book box for my own gain, or even because I was featured in it. The truth is: Ashley is providing a wonderful service to the indie author and bookworm communities, and she deserves to be recognized for it.

So, thank you, Ashley for all you’re doing for readers and authors everywhere. I hope your boxes bring happiness, peace and creativity to all who open them!
