This is a change from previous conference Mass Book Launches as we were unable to celebrate new books in person during the pandemic.

Anyone attending the Mass Book Launch is invited to celebrate any traditionally published books (regardless of sales), or non-traditionally published books that have sold more than 500 copies, published between December 2019 and November 2021.

This will be a simpler celebration (as we have already had online Mass Book Launches for eligible books during this time) and more details will follow as to what to do/bring on the night.

 


 

Please fill out all boxes below with text/valid email and files. Please nominate up to three of your book titles published between November 2021 and October 2022. Any self published books that have sold over 500 copies are also eligible. Good luck.

If you have any questions then please email Clare at conferencembl@britishscbwi.org
