Children's Book Week Giveaway Hop

It's Children's Book Week and I'm excited to be starting it off surrounded by kidlit authors and illustrators at the New England Conference for the Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators. For the first time in the conference's history, any member with a published book was allowed to sell their book at the conference book store, no matter how the book was published (traditional, small press, self). 

I packed some copies of my newly published book in the car and headed off to the conference yesterday. There are so many great books to explore! Since everyone who wrote these books are here someplace, I'm also going to try to get some of them signed.

If you missed getting a copy, don't worry. On the 8th I will be giving a copy of The Sweet Spot away. All you have to do is to leave a post in the comments some time this week and tell me what you think of having so many books for sale. Is it an idea NESCBWI should do again? Would you like to see it done at other conferences? Any other suggestions? How do you find new books?

You can also hop over to other kidlit giveaways going on this week. Just click below.

  1. I've attended many book fairs/conferences and enjoy talking to authors and purchasing books directly from them. It's a great way for self published authors to meet with readers.

    1. Traditionally published and small press published too. It's amazing to me how all authors need to learn how to market their work. Which is why it's so great when conferences give everyone that opportunity.

  2. sounds good to me - regnod(at)yahoo(d0t)com

  3. I think book sales are always a good thing. It helps gain exposure to authors, especially new ones or independent or small publishing houses.


  4. Thank you for commenting! I have sent an email to the winner of The Sweet Spot.
