How it Works

Our September Book

Everyday People is a thoughtfully curated anthology of short stories that presents new and renowned work by established and emerging writers of color. It illustrates the dynamics of character and culture that reflect familial strife, political conflict, and personal turmoil through an array of stories that reveal the depth of the human experience.


"Words cannot begin to express how excited I was about receiving my @candlelitbox. It’s not often that as a single mom and entrepreneur that I get to pamper myself so receiving this box was a sweet treat… I look forward to trying out these items and reading @nothingbutthetruthpublishing’s book! Make sure you check them out! You won’t be disappointed! #candlelitbox"

"Self-care taken to a whole new level! This literally has everything a girl loves and more to make sure I’m in check. I’ve been doing a lot more to make sure my mental as well as my physical is at peace and this is a great addition to staying on track. Plus it’s black owned. (Gone get you one!)"

"Came back from my mini vacay to find this beauty from @candlelitbox in the mail!!! A book, candle and tea! Yes!! ALL MY FAVS (along with some more goodies) packed inside this gorgeous box to assist with my addiction. I’m in heaven!"
