      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. If you aren't a patreon supporter but you'd like to join in with this giveaway, you can support here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum.   I really hope you're all going to like this introduction to the seasonal giveaways. It's been a lot of fun to put together. Other chocolate skulls may have been harmed during the selection process…

Simon Key of The Big Green Bookshop!

Recommended Posts

I am very excited to announce that Simon Key, author of 'We're Asleep, Dad' and owner of the Big Green Bookshop, has agreed to let us ask him a few questions! 


To give a little bit of background for those who don't know, the Big Green Bookshop used to be a physical independent bookshop in London but Simon recently moved away from the area with his family and the shop is now entirely online. Now, the really great part is this... to get a book that you want, all you have to do is tweet at Simon (via @biggreenbooks) or send him an email (biggreenbooks@gmail.com) and he sends you the price, which you just pay via paypal. I know that lots of you, like me, have to travel quite far to reach an independent bookshop so I know you're going to be as intrigued as me about this concept! 

'We're Asleep, Dad' is a book that came into existence when Head of Zeus contacted Simon about publishing a book based on his popular parenting tweets!

If you have any questions that you'd like to ask Simon please either reply below or send me a personal message before Saturday (4th May) :smile:
