All published SCBWI members are invited to feature their recent work in Kids’ Book Author of the Week, a regular feature for Grand (as in grandparents) e-zine. Joni Sensel, Suzanne Selfors, Amanda Noll, Royce Buckingham, Anjali Banerjee, Deb Caletti, Samantha Vamos and Pam Withers are among the local authors who have taken advantage of this excellent opportunity. One author reported receiving several orders within 24 hours after she went live on the site.
To participate, send a blurb about the book, your bio, a cover image, author photo and list of other books to Jim Whiting at firstname.lastname@example.org. For the book itself, include the name, publisher and pub date, genre, number of pages, recommended ages and price. You can also provide links to a sample chapter, reviews and/or your website. Perhaps the most important element is the hook: Why would grandparents want to buy your book for their grandkids? To whom would the book especially appeal?
Check out the feature at www.grandmagazine.com. Submissions are posted in the order in which they are received.
