I recently read a blog regarding the sale of Girls Scout Cookies.

It seemed there was a stagnancy in sales and it was becoming harder and harder to reach new cookie eaters. Every girl scout troop was bunked in front of Walmart or grocery stores, fighting for the same customers.

Until one troop thought outside the proverbial box. They set up shop in front of a marijuana shop in Colorado. And they sold a hell of a lot of cookies.

This got me to thinking of new ways to reach readers. I counsel writers to be authentic in connecting with their audience. Same thing my mom used to advise when trying to meet a nice boy. Do the things you love and he’ll show up eventually.

One of the things I love doing is online shopping. I find it actually relaxing—a way to experience the thrill of the mall and the hunt for clearance without every leaving my house. I also like to imagine how fabulous I’d look in outfits, or the heroines I’m currently writing. This led me over to Poshmark.com – a really cool place where women sell items in their closets for discount prices. I became not only hooked on the site, but the women who are involved. It is a friendly, supportive, fun community with strong minded, clever women—just the type of heroines I write about.

When I was re-issuing Summer Sins in a boxed set, I thought it would be fun to incorporate my love for shopping at Posh within the book. My heroine, Storme, is a fashion designer, and loves great clothes and fun accessories. She shops at the site for her upcoming wedding, and adds to her designer closet.

I thought it would be fun to share some closets I’ve found and shopped with Poshmark — and I’ve also included a folder on my Pinterest page called Posh Picks. You can check out outfits and accessories Storme wears in the book! Look for the hashtag #jensposhpicks on all my social media sites to see my pick of the day!

The best part? You can buy the boxed set of Hot in the Hamptons for only .99—which includes Summer Sins! Three books together for under a buck — it doesn’t get any better than that. This is a very special sale and limited, so snatch it up in the next few days before it’s gone.

Here are some of the closets I love at Posh!

 

If you get hooked like me, you can sign up for Poshmark and use my code JAGEU so you get a ten dollar discount on your first purchase. You can find me at Poshmark under @authorjenniferprobst at poshmark.com.

I hope you all enjoy reading the boxed set, shopping for some great deals, and basking in the spring sun!
