We are giving it a modern day twist and adding some flair, but the goal is to really amplify the amazing rising talent we have here and all across the nation ."

myBOOKbag, a New Online Book Subscription to Launch this Spring
A Literary Dream for Indie Authors Across the Nation
  
Washington, DC (Monday, April 13, 2015)-   myBOOKbag LLC is pleased to announce that they will officially launch in the Nation's Capital Sunday, April 26, 2015 and will be celebrating with a launch event. myBOOKbag is an online subscription book program which enables readers to connect with independent authors nationwide. The company, which enables readers to subscribe for $30 per month and receive a monthly bag full of books was created by Jessica Greenhill. Jessica wanted to provide a platform for independent authors to showcase their literary work, and for book lovers to access new and upcoming writers and their work. myBOOKbag is centered on the idea of indie readers and authors expanding their cognitive borders beyond the New York Times' Best Sellers list. The bag of books will cover all genres, creating an element of surprise, as myBOOKbag members will not know what authors will be included in the monthly bag full of books until it's announced the 1st every month, when the packages are sent. The mission of myBOOKbag is to improve every subscriber's literary experience and expand their horizons.
 
When asked about her vision of myBOOKbag, Jessica states "The motto at myBOOKbag is 'reading is dreaming with your eyes open' and myBOOKbag's main goal is to provide a different way of accessing the innovative indie author and to exposing book lovers nationwide to new authors that may have never come across."
 
In addition, Jessica discovered that a newly published book only has a 1 percent chance of being stocked in an average bookstore. Of the hundreds of books written every year in the US, more than half of them are self-published, drastically reducing the scope of their visibility. Tracing back to childhood memories, Jessica reflected on how her great Aunt would bring books to family functions from her publishing company, for she and her sisters to read. Having developed a collection of books from her Great Aunt (which she now shares with siblings and her own daughter), she recognized an opportunity to help build the personal libraries of others.
 
For more information on myBOOKbag, please visit www.getmybookbag.com and please follow on Instagram @getmybookbag. The official launch event will take place Sunday, April 26th at Maxime, located at 2915 M St. NW, WDC from 2-5 PM. This is a complimentary event but an RSVP is required. Please visit www.mybookbaglaunch.eventbrite.com to RSVP. If you're interested in covering the launch or setting up an interview with Jessica Greenhill, please contact Candice via email: Candice@CandiceNicolePR.com
