Through my work with Lone Star Literary Life, I became familiar with a new book subscription box based in the great state of Texas that would feature Indie or small press published books. I reached out to the owner for a spotlight feature/review on this blog and she graciously donated a box! I want to thank her so much for her patience as this post seemed like it would never come about!
As some of you are aware, I recently made the transition to become a real estate agent in Texas. When I accepted the box, I had just completed my licensing exam, so I wasn’t expecting to locate a firm quite as quickly as what ultimately ended up happening. Within a day of passing the exam, I was hired by the company I work at now and began a multi-week onboarding and coaching program. Two of my kids were still in school at the time as well, and I am currently still working as the treasurer for the elementary PTA. My husband, who works as a loan officer, and I also began hosting weekly first time home buyer education webinars, which then allowed me receive my first client. And if you’ve been paying attention to the housing market recently, this is quite the interesting time to enter the real estate world! So needless to say, it has been an incredibly BUSY and overwhelming month!
Again, I can’t express to Aimee how grateful I am for the opportunity to receive this box and her immeasurable patience with me as I navigated the choppy waters of starting my own business as well!
So without further ado, today, I’m finally featuring an unboxing of the June 2021 Book Lovers Delight subscription box!

Plagued with her own painful history, Daphne sets off to the mysterious town of Willoughby, MN, to uncover the truth of just who her mother really was and what she may or may not have done.
