The (bargain) Book

THE BOOK (2015) is available online for free for members of SCBWI. 

This three hundred page comprehensive, hands-on tool is designed to guide children’s book writers and illustrators through their publishing careers. It is available in hard copy and online to SCBWI members.


It contains new and essential articles featuring such topics as maximizing social media, creating book trailers, best practices in independent publishing, and grassroots promotion. A highlight of THE BOOK is the up-to-the-minute Market Survey, which includes a comprehensive house by house listing of editors, art directors and key personnel. Other directories include The International Market Survey, The Book Reviewers Directory, The Agents Directory, and a unique feature called Edited By, in which editors have been personally surveyed to provide a history of their recent acquisitions. Key resources include an annotated bibliography of essential reference books for any aspiring children’s book author or illustrator, as well as a current listing of bloggers, reviewers, grants and awards.
