CAPITAL CRIME BOOK CLUB NEWS! @LizzieCurle @David_Headley @adamhamdy

Last year saw the first ever Capital Crime Festival, a festival that organisers wanted to be inclusive and with a strong sense of community, held in central London. They largely succeeded in that, I think. We’re all hoping that there will be a second festival in October and there’s a note about that at the end of this post, because of course, everything is up in the air with Co-Vid19 right now.

So it’s brilliant news that the team behind the festival have come up with an affordable way to keep crime fiction fans part of that community, and to enable new fans to join in.

Capital Crime has today announced the launch of the Capital Crime Book Club. The Capital Crime Book Club is an affordable monthly subscription service that will be a year-round, inclusive home for readers, and a regular link between authors and fans.

Each month, subscribers will receive two carefully curated paperbacks along with exclusive access to great author content and community activities. The Capital Crime Book Club offers away for authors and publishers to connect with readers, maintaining the ethos at the heart of the Capital Crime festival. It will provide readers with great value for money, and a greater sense of community.

Capital Crime co-founder Adam Hamdy, says “Capital Crime is an inclusive festival with a strong sense of community. It is in this spirit that we’re launching the Capital Crime Book Club, a home for all fans of crime fiction. With a monthly subscription fee in the region of £10 for two paperbacks and access to exclusive community content, we’re intent on offering a great value service that’s accessible to everyone.”

Capital Crime co-founder and Goldsboro Books Managing Director, David Headley, says: “Capital Crime has always been about connecting fans of crime fiction with their favourite writers. We see this as another string to our bow complementing our physical festival and capitalcrime.digital platform. We’re supporting authors and publishers and helping them connect with readers in celebration of this much-loved genre.

The Capital Crime Book Club will officially launch on September 1st 2020. If you’d like to be among the first to experience The Capital Crime Book Club – register here.

NOTE: Capital Crime 2020 is due to take place on 1st – 3rd October 2020. Capital Crime organisers are monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic closely and while they are not yet able to take a decision on the 2020 festival, their priority is keeping their delegates and guests safe. The Capital Crime Book Club will run alongside the festival in the event it goes ahead, or act as a substitute if it gets cancelled. If the 2020 festival does not go ahead, existing Capital Crime 2020 pass holders will have the opportunity to convert to membership of the Capital Crime Book Club, transfer their purchase to a 2021 pass or get full refunds as they see fit. Capital Crime will be sharing more details with existing Capital Crime 2020 pass holders in
the coming weeks.

Passionate book reader. Love all kind of books from 19th century novels to crime thrillers. My blog is predominantly crime, psychological thrillers and police procedurals with a good helping of literary fiction thrown in.
