Submissions Open for Happy Book Birthday Program


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

This new SCBWI 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.

The next Book Birthday will be for all books published in March 2018. Only authors and illustrators with books published in March will be able to participate this month, but we will have Book Birthdays for every following month.

On January 15th, members with March books can start submitting their information. The deadline is February 10th, no exceptions.

Please gather the following information:
1.) Title of book
2.) Name of author and/or illustrator
3.) Image of book cover (.jpg or .png)
4.) Summary or statement about your book, 25 words or less
