Sell Your Books in the Conference Bookstore
If you are registering for the Winter Conference, you can sell up to two of your books in our online 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 and the ability to purchase copies. 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 the end of March 2021.
Guide to Creating Your Bookstore Page
STEP ONE: Log in to SCBWI.org using your email and password on the SCBWI homepage. If you have not already registered for the Winter Conference, you must register first. Once you are registered, proceed to Step Two.
STEP TWO: Once you are logged in, click on the MY HOME link or on your name in the upper right-hand corner. This will take you to your Member Profile page.
STEP THREE: Under the list of links on the left-hand side of the page, click on the link that says EDIT BOOKS under the words ‘Winter Conference’. This will take you to your Member Bookstore page.
STEP FOUR: On the Member Bookstore page, click on the green “ADD BOOK” button. That will add a new book template.
STEP FIVE: Add up to two books.
STEP SIX: Click on the “Edit Bookstore Book” link to edit your book template. This takes you to the Winter Conference Book Page template, where you’ll be doing all your work.
STEP SEVEN: 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.
STEP EIGHT: Don’t forget to click “Save” once you have filled in your information.
STEP NINE: To Preview your Winter 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.
STEP TEN: When are you finished previewing the page and want to return to editing the Winter 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 Winter Conference Bookstore page will go live on February 19, 2021 and will remain up through March 31, 2021.
