Earlier this fall I asked some followers if they’d want to submit some scrapbook pages of letters, fan art, pictures, thank you notes, etc to gather a bunch of love for Sarah J Maas into one place. I know she sees so much support and all of these individual items at her signings and everywhere, but I thought it would be fun to mail her one giant collection from people who can’t make it to those events.
This project was also something fun for the fans who just want to get excited about books and be part of a community. I get that not everyone’s a fan of her books, but the level of pure hatred directed at Maas and her fans is really disheartening to see. Nobody deserves that, so I wanted to do something positive to balance that negative energy 🙂
I meant to mail this scrapbook in October, but one of the pages from South Africa was apparently delivered via snail. But the book is finally assembled & shipped now! I just worked with whatever people sent me – some people wrote on both sides of a smaller card instead of sending a 12×12 scrapbook page, so I made a pocket in the back to tuck all of those notes into.
So here are some pics of the final book! If you asked me not to take a picture of your page then I left it out:
Around 70 people submitted something! Not everyone said where they were from, but the following countries were represented for sure:
- United States (from a ton of different states)
- The United Kingdom
- New Zealand
- The Philippines
- South Africa
- Saudi Arabia
So thank you SO MUCH again to everyone who contributed! It was just so much fun to see all of the enthusiasm for Maas and her books. You guys are amazing!!
