Happy Book Birthday is an SCBWI program that invites all members to promote their newly published work (traditionally and independently published) in the same month the book is released.
|The graphic for June 2021 - click here to explore this selection of books published by SCBWI members last month!|
On the first day of each month, all submitted book covers will be displayed on the Happy Book Birthday page on SCBWI.org and advertised through social media.
It's super easy to participate!
Just gather the following information:
1.) Book release date
2.) Title of book
3.) Name of author and/or illustrator
4.) Chapter Book, Graphic Novel, Middle Grade, Nonfiction, Picture Book, or Young Adult?
5.) Image of book cover – jpg or png ONLY – no PDFs or Word docs
6.) Summary or statement about your book, 25 words or less
7.) Link to your book’s purchase page
And send it by the deadline to firstname.lastname@example.org
Congratulations on getting your book published - now you have to let folks know about it, and this is one easy way to start!
