Recent Outreach to AuthorsJune 19, 2019
What’s Inside the Box?
School is out and the weather is warming up. As an ode to the season, we thought it was time for a box of chocolate stories dedicated to summer romance. The new assortment is available starting June 1st.
Pour yourself a cup of your favorite beverage, put your feet up, and reward yourself with a few uninterrupted minutes of enjoyment to hear the stories told by our chocolatiers. Did the stories bring back any personal memories? Alexa’s there to help you think about the story and prompt you with fun questions.
If it’s your very first time opening a box, try saying “Alexa, enable My Box of Chocolates.” After that you can simply ask Alexa to “open My Box of Chocolates” whenever you have time to relax and enjoy a few bite-sized stories.
What’s Different About this Assortment?
With this latest assortment we’re trying something a little bit different. Each story spans across two candies, so you’ll need to have the appetite for two pieces of delicious chocolate to find out what happens. But as with all the candies, these chocolates are calorie and guilt-free.
Many of our most avid listeners say they prefer hearing the stories through the Alexa app and their favorite earphones / headset. This offers a more immersive experience, while allowing for greater freedom of movement. We thought we’d pass along the tip.
We’re pleased to present the featured independent authors of the Summer Romance assortment. See the bottom of this post for information on how to become a featured author in an upcoming assortment!
