We have merged with Verla Kay’s Blueboards and brought aboard her team of knowledgeable moderators and the large community that is part of the Blueboards. If you have not visited the Boards in a while we think you will be very pleasantly surprised with the active, vocal, helpful community that exists there. You’ll want to join in the conversation.
SCBWI members can promote their new book with a virtual Book Launch Party and personal book launch page. SCBWI will promote Launch Parties twice a year with our membership, and with the children’s book community! Choose from one of the 16 available English templates or our Clasico Spanish template, fill in your fabulous information, (videos, synopsis, pictures, etc.) and then share your page on social media. This is a marketing tool to help bring awareness to your new book. The Holiday party pages will be live on SCBWI from Dec-April and the Summer party page will be live on SCBWI June-Sept.
