Writers do not get published alone, and one supportive and instructional group that I belong to is the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).
Just in time for Sophie’s Quest, they initiated a new program, the “Book Launch Party,” and any book by a member published in 2015 could sign up. There are contests, book trailers, bios of your favorite (and new-to-be-discovered) children’s book authors, and lots more!
Sophie’s Quest has a page, as does my twin sister’s book, Lost Crown of Apollo!
If you know any kids who get bored over Christmas break, send them to the party and show them the “Enter My Contest” button. They will have fun and can win lots of fun prizes! Over 530 books are listed, and every single one has cool stuff to offer.
Find a coloring page and THREE contests on Sophie’s Quest’s page! Many thanks to my brilliant British illustrator, Maggie Kneen, for re-working the cover of the book as a “colouring” page! Many thanks, too, to Nancy Holmes, for bringing back some very SPECIAL PRIZES from the HOLY LAND!
Here’s the link to my page, and just click on the SCBWI logo to find all the rest!
