If you are a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, head on over and check out their new web site which went live Wednesday/Thursday. Not to worry. Your old password still works like a charm. Some of the new features include:
SCBWI Online Bookstore where members are allowed to post their books for sale through Indie Bound, Barnes and Noble, Amazon or the member’s own site. Not only can you search the listings by author or title, you can also search on subject or genre, such as chapter book or young adult.
The Illustrator’s Gallery stars a Featured Illustrator with 6 illustrations and a searchable data base of illustrations.
A list of member blogs.
Regional sections have newsletters, event information and more.
And the discussion boards. The old SCBWI boards have been merged with Verla Kay’s amazing Blue Boards. All I can say is Wow! I’m looking forward to getting involved in some amazing chatter.
Truthfully, there is much, much more than this but it is going to take several visits to wrap my head around it all. I did note that I seriously need to update by “enhanced” member profile. Right now, it looks a little thin!
Have fun exploring. I know I will.
