Gifting Bette and Book Raffle Update <3
Thank you thank you thank you
***Please take out a paid membership to support my work.***
Thank you to everyone who has been giving the gift of Bette Dangerous this season. It means so much to me. And some of you have been the recipients of Bette members’ largess, so please check your memberships because they may have been upgraded to paid in the last 24 hours.
If you would like to participate in our gifting program, please do so here:
If you would like to give a gift but don’t have anyone in mind to send the membership gift to, please reach out to me as we have many older adults who would appreciate an annual subscription who cannot afford one. As always, I do offer a flat rate to those on fixed incomes, so don’t hesitate to reach out at bettedangerous/gmail.
Lastly, the book raffle is going swimmingly, with some members entering multiple times. My book about Bradley Nowell from the band “sublime” is a collectable — I have seen it priced for as much as a $1,000 but hopefully the winner will enjoy it as a keepsake. In one of our upcoming Happy Hours, I’ll tell the story of how the project came together — purely magical and cosmic.
If you would like to enter the raffle, please go here:
I am very pleased, because I managed to get my tree up despite a heavy investigating load. To clear my head before the next round, I am off to hand-make some ornaments, because as I look at my pretty pink tree, I can see what’s not there.
Bette Dangerous is a reader-funded magazine. Thank you to all monthly, annual, and founding members. Thank you as well to all those who support my work with your generous coffee tips and who buy my ebooks. Some of you prefer making subsidizing donations via venmo, and it’s always greatly appreciated.
Thank you to all who are contributing to the raffle to try to win a copy of my rarest book, Sublime’s Brad Nowell Crazy Fool — Portrait of a Punk. The winner will receive a signed copy.
