If you're reading this, we want to thank you so much for being here! Here is a little more about us:
Royalty Book Box is a subscription box for romance book lovers. We absolutely love romance novels (some may call it an addiction), and we are also me-time enthusiasts, which is how Royalty Book Box came to be. We believe that every romance reader should feel like a queen.
Our boxes are for anyone, from the busy college student looking for an escape, a working woman who needs a break from every day life, to the working or stay at home mom who could use an hour or two to unwind and relax.
Royalty Book Box was created by me, New York Times, USA Today, and Amazon bestselling author Shanora Williams. I personally don't get much down time as a full-time author and mother of two toddlers (and I'm sure some of you can relate), so when it just so happens that I do, the only thing I want to do is read a good book and feel good doing it.
I am a firm believer in self-care and me-time. After dealing with depression and several bad cases of anxiety, I found the perfect remedy to feeling better, and that was to take an hour or two to unwind, relax, take care of myself, and curl up with an amazing romance book too! I did it so religiously that I wondered, "Why isn't there something out there to make this experience even better?" That's how the idea of the Royalty Book Box came along!
Our mission is to deliver a box to you that will help cure a stressful or long day - a box that will make for a great escape in the comfort of your own home. Every woman should have the chance to feel beautiful and to get pampered, and getting signed paperbacks from some of your favorite romance authors is the icing on top. This box would also make for a great girls' night kit, so we've been told! Our romance genres are Contemporary, New Adult, & Erotic Romance.
What will be in the box?
In our Princess 1-Book Box, we include 1 signed paperback by a bestselling romance author, a spa or self-care item, a delicious treat to devour, book swag, and mini journals with self-care prompts and tips.
In our Queen 2-Book Box, we include 2 signed paperbacks by 2 different bestselling romance authors, a spa or self-care item, 2 delicious treats to devour, a surprise soothing gift, several pieces of surprise swag to match themes, and mini journals with self-care prompts and tips.
Every box will be curated and crafted with heart and soul. We also include personlized notes to enhance the Royalty Book Box experience. All boxes reserved on Kickstarter will add the shipping + handling fees once your country is selected. None of the fees should be above 20. If they are, please contact us at email@example.com. At this time, we are only shipping to the following countries: Canada, United Kingdom, United States, and Australia.
Something else you should know about us: we will be donating a percentage of our monthly proceeds to women's and girl's health charities all over the globe. Our girls are the future. Women are the leaders and teachers. We want to show our support for the empowerment of girls and women and use our voice.
Doesn't matter if we only sell one box a month, a percentage of that sold box will be given to a non-profit charity! Here is a list of a few charities we have in mind for RBB's future: Boys & Girls Club of America, Mental Health America, Girls Not Brides, Every Mother Counts. We have done lots of research on these organizations (and many more) and we are inspired by them 100%.
The kickstarter funds we receive will go into sourcing the themed items/self-care products in the boxes, and to help our Royalty Authors, who will be signing books to feature in our boxes, with setup fees and shipping costs.
Please note that since this is being funded through Kickstarter, you are only reserving a box and your card will not be charged unless we reach our funding goal. If we do not reach it, we will personally contact those who have pledged and let them know first that our Cratejoy website is live, so that they can get their box before everyone else. If you'd really like a Royalty Book Box, please tell your book and spa loving friends to back this lovely project so that you can reserve a box without the hassle later! If the project is successfully funded, all pledgers/backers who are reserving a box will be contacted personally to acquire mailing information.
Please feel free to follow our Instagram, as that is where we do most of our promoting. It's also a great way to see lots of pretty pictures of the box and enter giveaways: @RoyaltyBookBox

Risks and challenges
We know there are many book box subscriptions out there, but we are so, so passionate about this endeavor and promise to bring our all + more with every single box. You will never be underhanded or ignored, and if there is ever a delay or hiccup, we will let you know first thing. The only problems we can see as of now that may arise is distribution or supplier situations. Most of the self-care items will be shipped to us from small businesses and most are careful, diligent, and just as passionate about their work as we are, which means it will take time. Our goal is to order the items many weeks in advance so we never have an issue with shipments/delays.
We hope you'll join us in the palace!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
