Conference Bookstore





If you are registering for the Virtual Conference, you can sell up to two of your books in our virtual conference bookstore. This is a fantastic opportunity for SCBWI members to boost their book’s outreach. Design an online page that gives visitors an inside look at your titles. Each page will include a link to purchase your book from a bookseller of your choice and will remain up in our virtual bookstore through March 25, 2023.




Guide to Creating Your Bookstore Pages


1. Log in to using your email and password on the SCBWI homepage. If you have not already registered for the Virtual Conference, you must register first. Once you are registered, proceed to #2.

2. Once you are logged in, click on the MY HOME link in the upper right-hand corner. This will take you to your Member Profile page.

3. Under the list of links on the left-hand side of the page, click on the link that says EDIT BOOKS under the words ‘Conference Bookstore’. This will take you to your “Conference Bookstore – Member’s Books” page.

4. On the Member’s Books page, click on the green “ADD BOOK” button. That will add a new book template, and then you’ll see that displayed below the ADD BOOK button.

5. You can add up to two books.

6. Click on the “Edit Bookstore Book” link to edit your book template. This takes you to the Virtual New York Conference Book Page template, where you’ll be doing all your work.

7. Fill in as much information about your book as you wish to appear on your Book Page from the fields listed: (Remember the more unique the content, the more enticing your page will be to visitors. Get creative!) All details marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory

8. Don’t forget to click “Save” once you have filled in your information.

9. To Preview your Virtual New York Conference Book Page, click “Preview” to see how your page will appear before it’s published. It will open as a separate page for you to view. Do not close the page where you edit information without saving, or you will lose the unsaved work

10. When you are finished previewing the page and want to return to editing the Virtual New York Conference Book Page, simply close the Preview page or tab. If you want to make changes, don’t forget to hit “Save” when you are finished!


Your Virtual New York Conference Bookstore page will go live on February 25, 2023 and will remain up through March 25, 2022.
