      The Autumn Supporter Giveaway!       Welcome to the very first of the seasonal BCF supporter giveaways! This month also marks one year since I took on the forum, so I want to say an extra huge thank you to all of you for keeping this place going. I have a little bit more to say about that later but, for now, let's get to the giveaway!     The Autumn Giveaway winner will be getting two Penguin Little Black Classics, The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe and To Be Read At Dusk by Charles Dickens. Both of these little books contain three atmospheric short stories, perfect for autumnal evenings. The winner will also get Mary Shelley tea (a lavender and vanilla black tea) from Rosie Lea Tea's Literary Tea Collection (https://www.rosieleatea.co.uk/collections/literary-tea-collection) and a chocolate skull, to really get that spooky atmosphere .   and...   A special treat for a special month. The winner will choose one of the following recent paperback releases from the independent bookshop Big Green Bookshop:       The Wych Elm by Tana French A House of Ghosts by W.C. Ryan Melmoth by Sarah Perry The Familiars by Stacey Halls  The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White   The winner will be chosen via the usual random selection process in one week. Patreon supporters are entered automatically.

  1. Dear all,I'd like to ask for your help. My fiance left her full time job as a educator to pursue her dream as a children's book author, and have successfully launched her first book, Best Dressed, on kickstarter platform. Now she's into her second book, The Swimming Giraffe, and admittedly it has been slow in getting to the funding target, due to the ever increasing costs.She truly has the heart for children and has made it her mission to instill positive values into children's life from a young age through the children's book. I feel frustrated for her because she isn't getting the traction she needs to get to book printing, and I really do feel that the book can inspire a lot of children.As such, I am hoping to attract people into looking at her kickstarter campaign and perhaps can encourage her and help her along the way. If you search for The Swimming Giraffe you'll get to her campaign page for more information. Thank you for your time in reading this post, I really appreciate it. Yours sincerely,
