For those of my followers who have had their children's or YA book published, SCBWI Book Blast is coming, and you can start customising your own page from 1 September, details below:
Coming Soon: BOOK BLAST
October 10-November 18, 2016
SCBWI Book Launch Parties are back with a new name and
they're better than ever. If you've had a book published in 2016, you
are invited to participate in our all-new Book Blast.
The Book Blast is open to all SCBWI members with a book out during
this calendar year. You can customize your promotional page to tell
the unique story about your book.
Create your own world to showcase your book using your
words and visuals. Last year, over 50,000 page views proved book
lovers and buyers were captivated by the hundreds of pages of picture
books, YA novels, middle grade, and nonfiction books. This year
we're predicting an even greater turnout. The Book Blast will run 6-weeks,
from October 10 to November 18, and will be supported by marketing
programs including incentives to page visitors, paid advertising,
social media outreach and widespread publicity.
Don't miss out on this chance
to make your book shine!
