Writer’s Block. Let’s face it – it’s your worst nightmare! And really, for any writer, chasing down your muse can be exhausting. Staring at the blank computer screen wondering if the words will ever come.

Promoting yourself and your books can be just like Writer’s Block – frustrating and scary!

But what if Writer’s Block meant something different? What if it meant that you were handed blocks that you could build on? What if it meant that you could promote your brand in a new and unique way?

If you are tired of the same-old thing when it comes to giveaways, look no further! The Writer’s Block by Book Scents is here to save you! You don’t have to look at those boring pens and bookmarks any more. You can expand your arsenal of gifts to include a custom made fragranced candle just for your book!

Fragrance = Creativity + Science + Memories

So why fragranced candles? I’m not going to get too “science-y” on you here, but there’s a strong connection between fragrance and memories. Your brain makes connections between people and places and scent. When I smell Chanel No. 5 I always think of my grandmother. And there’s a scent that can only be a baseball diamond in April – cut grass, wooden bats, resin, leather mitts. Close your eyes right now and imagine a place or a person and you will think of a smell to go with it.

So let’s take that science and connect it to your book or character. Let’s create a memory for you readers that is going to last with them for a really long time – if not forever! Who does that? YOU DO! You write a story and The Writer’s Block builds on your creativity and takes your fans to the next level.

Have more questions? Not convinced? Read on!

Writing is a process. You have your own way of doing it too. No two authors are the same. However, in the end you end up with a book. It can be in paper form or digital, but no matter how you get there its book that can be enjoyed and loved for years to come. As a book lover, I get that. And creating candles for you is just the same.

 It’s also about a Relationship.

I respect your talents as an author and creative entity. I work with you and create your candle with love and attention. This isn’t a situation in which I crank out the same thing over and over. I am not a candle factory. I read your book and become acquainted with your work. I work with you on the details of each step. You get a say! We are a team as we move through the creation of the fragrance and all of the other parts of the Block you purchase.

Book Scents is run by me, Nalana Lillie. I am a former military wife, mom of two boys and, now, entrepreneur. I love reading and crocheting. When I’m not working my business, you can find me and my guilty pleasures – TV shows such as Dr. Who, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Downton Abbey, Outlander, The Walking Dead and many more – wrapped up in a warm blanket, with my coziest PJ’s, tasty snacks and my tea (or coffee if it’s any time before noon!) in our home in Central Pennsylvania.
