Happy Book Birthday


Submissions are now open for the July 2021 edition of the Happy Book Birthday program.   


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. 

Submissions for books released in July must be sent by Thursday, June 24, 2021 – no exceptions.

1.) Book release date
2.) Title of book
3.) Name of author and/or illustrator
4.) Chapter Book, Graphic Novel, Middle Grade, Nonfiction, Picture Book, or Young Adult?
5.) Image of book cover – jpg or png ONLY – no PDFs or Word docs
