Happy Tuesday, I am absolutely thrilled to be sharing some exciting news with you all today. Us reading folk love a book subscription, further more when it promises an affordable monthly fix of crime and thriller. That is exactly what is in store for you when you sign up to the new initiative of the founders of the Capital Crime Festival.
This September sees the launch of the Capital Crime Book Club, a year round subscription service where its subscribers will receive two carefully chosen crime / thriller paperbacks, along with exclusive access to great author content and community activities for under £10 a month – you can also purchase a quarterly and yearly subscription, which will save you even more pounds!
Why should you sign up, I hear you ask yourself. How does the Capital Crime Book Club subscription differ from the many others? If you attended the Capital Crime festival last year, you’d know that the aim of its finders was to create a setting for readers to connect with other readers, authors, bloggers and publicists. Their aim is to help provide a community for all those that love crime and thrill – by starting this book club they are furthering that sense of community that is accessible to EVERYBODY, inclusively! I am not sure about you but I am super excited for the first box this September. The official launch date of the book club is the 1st of September, you can sign up for your box here: https://www.capitalcrime.digital/capital-crime-book-club/

Capital Crime 2020 is planned to take place from the 1st to 3rd of October 2020. The organisers are closely monitoring the Covid-19 pandemic closely and while they are not yet able to make a decision whether the festival will go ahead, the priority is to keep all those involved and attending safe.
