Happy Book Birthday

Submissions are now open for the January and February 2018 edition of the Happy Book Birthday program.

ThisSCBWI program invites all members to celebrate and promote their newly published work in the same month the book is released. On the first Monday of each month, we will display all of the books together on our beautiful Book Birthday page and advertise them through our social media channels. Each Book Birthday announcement will remain up on our site for two weeks. We hope that all of our traditionally and independently published members will take advantage of this opportunity to celebrate their achievement and launch their work into the book-buying community.

Please note that we will not have a Happy Book Birthday celebration in our January edition of Insight or on our website. Submissions for books released in January and February must be sent in by January 20, no exceptions. 
Please gather the following information:
1.) Book release date
2.) Title of book
3.) Name of author and/or illustrator
4.) Image of book cover (.jpg or .png)
5.) Summary or statement about your book, 25 words or less
