The Crystal Kite is the member choice award given out by the Society of Children’s Books Writers and Illustrators each year. That means that if you are an SCBWI PAL member with a book published in 2012, you need to make sure that your book has been nominated.
Do this by going to the SCBWI site.
Once there, you will have to update your member profile to include the information on your 2012 book. To do this:
- Log in.
- Click on Manage Profile.
- Click on the tab labeled Publication.
- Enter your 2012 book. When you do, be sure to click the box next to the following. “Yes, I would like to submit this publication for Crystal Kite Awards nomination.”
NOTE: Once voting has begun (February 1, 2013) no more books can be nominated. You have two days to nominate your book!
Good luck to all of you PAL authors.
