HI, Guys and Gals!
In case you missed the earlier announcement, the October Attic Box theme is HALLOWEEN PARTY! Hooray!
Halloween is the favored holiday of many, and it's a time of year that I love--with all the ghoulish decor and vast array of costumes and accessories landing in all the stores, it's the perfect time to gather all the pieces together for upcoming costume/cosplay ideas! Plus, fall is my FAV-O-RITE season. The crisp air and the beautiful colors give my smothering soul a well-deserved breath of energy and renewal. Perhaps some of you appreciate fall because it's the season of "pumpkin everything," but I'm not a follower of that particular trend. To those of you who are audibly gasping because I don't like pumpkin flavored gelatin with my pumpkin spice latte, don't fret...there may be hope for me yet. *wink*
We're excited to be able to theme our October box around Halloween for many reasons, but the biggest is that the month of October will bring about the second issue of Flytrap Uprising! And with the journal's Noir/Horror theme also nodding toward the Halloween season, we're really looking forward to spreading our own brand of spooky around.
To commemorate the slated release for the second issue, we are giving away FIVE COPIES of our first issue. The recipients will be randomly chosen from the active October Attic Box subscriber list, so if you needed another reason to subscribe to the Attic Box, here it is. There are no additional entry requirements other than being an active subscriber. The winners will be selected once October's order close and we'll pack the prize issue into the outgoing boxes.
The September Space boxes are nearly packed and the last shipment of those should ship by Wednesday following Labor Day, so get geared up to find those on your doorstep.
We're also running an Instagram giveaway for the September. Here's how that works:
- Receive September Attic Box and rejoice.
- Photograph unopened Attic Box. Get as creative as you'd like.
- Photograph opened Attic Box and contents.
- Post on Instagram with #septemberatticbox. Also tag us in the comments so we'll be sure to see it. Profiles will need to be public in order for us to see them.
- If we like your photos and repost them on IG, your name will go into a drawing for a cool prize. (The prize is undetermined at this point. It could be a free Attic Box or something weird and totally unrelated.)
So, lots to look forward to, and more announcements will be forthcoming. A HUGE THANKS to all of you for supporting us on this journey. We look forward to your feedback on upcoming boxes and journal-related things. Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, comments, and ideas.
Until next time,
