Happy Book Birthday


Please check back at the end of December for an update regarding the Happy Book Birthday program. In the meantime, we invite you to peruse the 2020 archive below.  

This SCBWI program invites all members to celebrate and promote their newly published work in the same month the book is released. On the first day of each month, we will display all of the books on our beautiful Book Birthday page and advertise them through our social media channels. 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 gather the following information:
1.) Book release date
2.) Title of book
3.) Name of author and/or illustrator
4.) Picture Book, Middle Grade, Young Adult, or Nonfiction?
5.) Image of book cover (.jpg or .png)
6.) Summary or statement about your book, 25 words or less
7.) Link to your book’s purchase page
