Preorder the new book from Offbeat Bride's author, and enter to win a luxe Shitshow Survival Kit #Site News#books#giveaway Posted Jun 30 2020 Ariel arielmstallings Hey guys! It's me, Ariel — the author of Offbeat Bride. My new book, From Sh!tshow To Afterglow, publishes on July 21st. It's about how to rebound after loss, grief, and the other cruel crises life throws your way — basically, it's like Offbeat Bride, but for shitshows instead of weddings. To encourage everyone to get their copies of Sh!tshow ordered now, my publisher is hosting a preorder sweepstakes, and I want one of you to win! The Sh!tshow Survival Kit I lovingly assembled this package, and I'm so excited about it. Here's what's included in the Sh!tshow Survival Kit: Luxe gold-embossed Moleskine journal Great for self-reflection and doing all that brutal ego-dismantlement work! Hand-stamped raw brass hoop earrings by Seattle jeweler Squirrel vs. Coyote One earring is stamped with the word SHITSHOW, and the other says AFTERGLOW. You can wear them both or go asymmetrical and rock just the one that shows where you're at in your process on that particular day! Handcrafted AFTERGLOW meditation candle by Virginia candlemaker UNLAX The hand-blended soy candle smells like a custom blend of sandalwood, amber, and nonduality! 3-month membership to The Afterglow This is my new membership program with exclusive weekly mailers, and massive members-only archive filled with essays, audiobooks, guided meditations, deleted scenes from Sh!tshow, and more. How to Enter To be entered into the sweepstakes, fill out the form with your contact info and a preorder receipt number. The sweepstakes ends 7/20/20 at 11:59 pm ET.
