      Important Announcement!   07/28/2018

      Dear BCF members,   This forum has been running now for many years, and over that time we have seen many changes. Generalised forums are nowhere near as popular as they once were, and they have been very much taken over by blogs, vlogs and social media discussions. Running a forum well takes money, and a lot of care and attention, as there is so much which goes on behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly.   With all of this in mind, and after discussion within the current moderator team, the decision has been made to close this forum in its current format. I know that this will disappoint a lot of our long term members, but I want to reassure you that it's not a decision which has been taken lightly.    The remaining moderator team have agreed that we do not want to lose everything which is special about our home, and so we are starting a brand new facebook group, so that people can stay in touch, and discussions can continue. We can use it for free and should be easier for us to run (it won't need to be updated or hosted). We know not everyone has FaceBook, but we hope that those of you who are interested will join the group. We will share the link, and send invites as soon as we are ready to go. Added: We may as well get this going, find us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/195289821332924/   The forum will close to new registrations, but will remain open for some time, to allow people to collect up any information, reading lists etc they need to, and to ensure they have contact details for those they wish to stay in touch with.    The whole team feel sad to say goodbye, but we also feel that it's perhaps time and that it feels like the right choice. We hope we can stay in touch with all of you through our new FaceBook group.   I personally want to thank everyone who has helped me moderate the forum, both in the past and the present, and I also want to thank every single person who has visited, and shared their love of books.. I'm so proud of everything we've achieved, and the home we built.   Please visit the new section in the Lounge section to discuss this further, ask questions etc.

  1. User banned after posting

    I've just been contacted by a book blogger I did an author interview for. Apparently she posted on the forum, it seemed to load up ok, and then it disappeared and her attempts to log in and discover what went wrong result in her getting a 'banned' page. As she is unable to ask you herself, I offered to ask for her. Presumably she broke a forum 'rule' but it's hard to find out what is there is no advice, no warning, just a removal of her post and her log-in banned.
  2. thanks - quite an international flavour, it seems.
  3. Thank you for those kind words, Anna. I'm looking forward to learning how a forum works!
  4. That's really very kind of you, thanks.
  5. New Members - Questions, Problems?

    Just posted my 'introduction'. Hope it worked. Having never used a forum before, it's something of a challenge!
  6. Good morning. This is the very first book-related forum I have registered on, and until this morning I wasn't aware they existed. Looking forward to engaging with like-minded people and hearing recommendations. I'm a recently published author, having stepped into this world quite accidentally after writing my first book as part of my therapy for PTSD. Being an ex-soldier and cop, not too surprisingly I went against the advice of many of our best authors and decided to write about what I know. Books - I've just started reading 'THE SLAP' and I'm working on my third, due to be published Spring 2018. Best regards, Matt.
