Today’s post is really more of a link, but here’s the explanation.
I was listening to a podcast about book boxes where an author was describing the swag she included in launch boxes for her book. What a cool idea! While I don’t subscribe to any book boxes, I think they’re awesome.
I tried to imagine what I would have put in my “launch box” for The Kepos Problem if I’d made one.
This exercise was harder than anticipated, but I came up with a few ideas and headed over to pinterest.
Ultimately some of the things I thought of with wouldn’t really be feasible in their pinned form, but there are some ideas I like.
- The book, The Kepos Problem!
- Flower pot and seeds
- “Maximute” (aka malamute) plush or pin
- Shooting star jewelry (like in the StellAcademy logo)
- Machi plush or something (tapir-inspired)
- Nerdy biology joke T shirt
- Something resembling a glowglobe
Here’s a link to the board on pinterest. I included thoughts on each item there.
What sort of swag do you like to see in a book box?
