This month I was excited to receive - and unbox! - the January Storytellers BOX, Vintage Collection from JeanBookNerd. This box was full of unique and exclusive items on theme, and I was blown away by the quality and craftsmanship of this box! There is absolutely no detail spared in packaging and presentation of each item included in the box - from tea-died papers to custom seals and aged felt, unboxing this BOX was like celebrating Christmas all over again, this time with a lot of bookish fun.
Since I had something to 'unbox' I thought I'd try my hand at making an 'unboxing video' for my YouTube channel. I think it's safe to say I need a little bit of practice with my camera work (yes, I even ordered a new mount), but this was so much fun to put together. I am also grateful to my good friend Matt over at Dadbod Soundsystems for letting me use some of his custom tunes!
If you like what you see in the video, head over to JeanBookNerdStorytellersBOX for more information on how you can order your very own. All orders placed by February 15th, 2020 11:59:59 PM PST will received the THE VINTAGE COLLECTION JeanBookNerd Storytellers BOX.

Praise for ISAN Series
"Addictive and impossible to put it down!" --Addison Moore, New York Times Bestselling Author
“Captivating from the very beginning, this sci-fi novel explores issues of autonomy and survival in a world where there are few remaining citizens after meteors crashed into Earth … this thrilling dystopian drama has a splash of romance and tons of action. The fast-paced chapters will engage reluctant readers and fans of postapocalyptic scenarios.” --School Library Journal
"ISAN will leave readers breathless with anticipation as they race through each exciting page." --Tiffany King, USA Today Bestselling Author
While searching for the HelixB88 anti-serum on the black market, Ava uncovers valuable intel that may help the rebels in their fight to bring down ISAN—the location of a hidden facility. But first, the insurgents must find the female citizens unexpectedly displaying powers without use of the Helix serum before ISAN captures them. As the rebels join forces with other sectors, ISAN plans their destruction by using someone they don’t suspect at the rebel home base: a traitor within.
