SCBWI's Blueboard - A Message & Chat Board

This board is for all writing and illustrating good news pertaining to children's literature − selling a book or article, book birthdays, magazine acceptances, signing with an agent, awards, professional journal reviews, etc. Please be sure your profile shows at least five quality posts before sharing your good news here. New: To streamline the various boards, we are asking that no links to sales pages be added to the posts here. You can have a link to your website or blog where you might also have a sales page link, however. Any posts including a direct link to a sales page (which would be a page with a 'buy' button) will be moved (without notice) to the Promotional board. Also, try to avoid any type of encouragement for folks to buy your book within the post. If you link to a blog post which discusses your book and does aim to entice others to buy, that's fine. But within the post itself, try to keep the mindset on celebrating rather than focusing on sales (this would include NOT mentioning where it can be bought, even without links).
