Lit-Cube Junior reader/book subscription box for kids!

lit-cubejrOnce upon a time not so very long ago…

a wonderful subscription box business was born to fill the gaping need in the hearts of book geeks everywhere. Thanks to awesome Kickstarter supporters (like you) the business ( www.Lit-Cube.com ) was a smashing success. However, a cry rose up all over the world… a cry from the anguished hearts of bookworm parents everywhere.

“What about the children?” they cried.

We heard their cry. We, as hopeless book-lovin’ parents ourselves, heard their cry and we rose to the challenge.

“We will NOT let the children go without the sustenance their little minds, hearts, and imaginations need,” we vowed. “We will NOT sit idly by and watch them wither away in front of our eyes. We will nourish these little readers and by doing so, we will silence that pitiful cry from the parents echoing throughout the world.”

Thus, LIT-CUBE JR. was born.

A subscription box for the young readers in your life. Geared toward 8-12 year old readers, these gender neutral boxes will delight, entertain, and help nurture the love of reading in children. What would be more amazing than having your children geeking out over a subscription box filled with BOOKS and READING products *just* for them each month? Not much, dear friend. Not much.

Lit-Cube Jr. is not really a box.

But it will come beautifully packaged in a bubble mailer. We decided to go this route to save money so we could pass those savings on to parents! :)

Lit-Cube Jr. is perfect for middle grade readers!

No cuts no butts no coconuts. Lit-Cube Junior will be great for readers aged 7-13, or those who enjoy chapter books, independent readers, and middle grade novels. The books we feature will *always* be age appropriate.

But what’s inside????

Below you will find a sample of what could be included in your Lit-Cube Junior package. As a matter of fact, it might just BE the first Lit-Cube package. We haven’t quite decided yet. We’ve partnered up with some FABULOUS publishers to bring you the best of the best in middle grade reads and products.

Cost of Survival, Book #1

COSfrontAnger isn’t an emotion anymore, it’s more of a survival mode I can’t afford to let go.
My dad predicted World War III would happen in his life, but he died two years before… with my brother…
…before Mom and I walked in search of refuge from the bombing.
Strengthened by her faith, Mom never feels alone. But me? I don’t know what to believe or where to turn. Someone once said keep your friends close and your enemies closer, but I disagree. Friends scare me the most. They know me and my mom. Nothing about them is safe.
The ones in charge… Control everything…
Crud, I’ve started crying because I’m scared I won’t survive World War III. But a bigger part of me is scared I will.
My mom is bleeding in my arms and she’s making me promise to follow her three rules.
Pray.
Don’t trust anyone.
Stay alive.
How long do I need to break all three?

Exchange Rate, Book #2

exchangerateI’m pregnant and I couldn’t be more excited. But the community Bodey, his dad, and I live in has rules. Rules that make Mom’s rules seem like safety nets.
Only 200 people are allowed at a time. My baby will make it 201.
The leader is making me choose someone from our house to die so there will be room for my child. Either I make the decision or they take… my…
Even in the craziness that the world has become, I refuse to believe only 200 can live in it at once.
The “community” is safe-ish, comfortable. We have food, warmth, and there isn’t immediate danger of being robbed while we sleep.
Doesn’t it make sense we’d have to exchange something for all that?
I’ve survived this long. Maybe that’s enough. Maybe I should die so my family can live.
Or maybe I can get through the lines and find a people worth sacrificing for.

Worth of Souls, Book #3

WOSfront
Running for my life and six months pregnant, I’m terrified but confident in my decisions.With my love and family behind me, captured by the same man who chases me, I have only a small window to find help. The baby needs to come out eventually.Nobody said the end of the world would define people so much. Everywhere I turn I have to prove my worth.Mom was gone before I learned my value lay in my eyes. Not others.
But how would that save Bodey? How could my worth change how the world me spins?If I can’t figure it out, everyone I love will die, trapped in a place where even following the rules won’t protect us.

Not Without You by Dianne Venetta

notwithoutyou-197x300

Grad student, Lisa Richardson, scours the high country in search of her beloved boreal toad. The amphibian is in danger of extinction, a fate she is determined to change. Single-minded in her focus, Lisa doesn’t realize that she’s being followed by a mysterious stranger.

Enter McIntyre Walsh. Ex-marine with a heart of gold, this man lives and breathes duty. Protection. Content with his self-exile on a mountaintop in Colorado, he inadvertently witnesses a female hiker in danger, a situation he cannot ignore yet is unable to rectify. When their paths cross, Lisa and Walsh refuse to stray from their avowed goals and carry on–despite the other.

It isn’t until a killer ramps up his game that both are forced to relent. Battling the rugged terrain of the Rocky Mountains and an undeniable attraction between them, Lisa and Walsh must work together against the odds if they intend to get off the mountain alive.

About Dianne –

Dianne lives in Central Florida with her husband, two children and part-time Yellow Lab–Cody-body! When not whacking away at her keyboard crafting her next novel you’ll find her in their organic garden chasing grasshoppers and plucking hornworms all while drawing wild analogies between kids and plants and men. Definitely men.

A girl’s gotta have fun, right?

When she’s not knee-deep in dirt or romance, Dianne contributes garden advice for various websites and volunteers in school gardens (a crazy existence to be sure). But at the end of the day, if she can inspire someone to stop and smell the roses–or rosemary!—kiss their child and spouse good-night, be kind to a neighbor and Mother Earth, then she’s done all right.

The Inner Kingdom by S.R. Gibbs #SpringIntoBooks

SRGIBBSApril, Angie, and Ashley are just three ordinary adopted sisters, just trying to survive their senior year in high school. They live by four simple rules: They must not tell anyone that they are adopted sisters, sit at the same lunch table, speak more than necessary to one another during school hours, and the most important one, Never get involved in the problems of others.
The girls’ rules no longer applied, when they are suddenly transported to a distant world; where they are welcomed as destined warriors, chosen at birth to save their world. In order to do this they will first have to journey to three of the four outer kingdoms, within six months to release their dragons, and defeat the evil Queen before she fully regains her strength, and continues the war she started over a hundred years ago.
Even in her weakened state the Queen will not make it easy for them, with the girls’ sudden manifestation of special abilities, they discover what they were really meant to be. Faced with a chance to be able to return home. They are forced to make the decision to stay in the world where they’ve found love, friendship, and a purpose, or go back to a world, that tried to take away their destiny.

This YA book is on sale for only $.99 on Amazon

Reviews –

“In the case of CS Lewis’ body of work, I felt that in author SR Gibb’s debut novel, there lay the hallmarks of The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.”

“If you are a fan of the Narnia series, or even animated shows like W.I.T.C.H, then you will surely find The Inner Kingdom by S.R. Gibbs an enjoyable read. It’s fast-paced with a reveal at the end.”

“Author Gibbs has put together an excellent YA story. It’s the first I’ve read in a while that has focused, believable heroines.”

 

9039954_origS.R. Gibbs was born and raised in Florida, she have always been a bit of a bookworm.
