MMGM Links (1/20/13) --plus last week's winner!

Sorry guys, I'm officially back in the deadline cave on LTSF #2, so alas, no MMGM this week. But I do have links, and the edits aren't nearly as horrible as I feared so I'm hoping to get back on track soon. Thanks for bearing with me!

ALSO I ... forgot AGAIN to post last week's winner. So, I will do that right now. The winner of DEAD CITY is...

If you would like to join in the MMGM fun, all you have to do is blog about a middle grade book you love (contests, author interviews and whatnot also count--but are most definitely not required) and email me the title of the book you're featuring and a link to your blog at SWMessenger (at) hotmail (dot) com. (Make sure you put MMGM or Marvelous Middle Grade Monday in the subject line so I see it)

NOTE: I used to not have a cut-off time for adding links to the post, but with how insane my schedule is right now, if you don't email me by Sunday evening (usually around 11pm PST is when I put the links together) I can't guarantee I'll have a chance to add you. BUT, you are welcome to add your link in the comments on this post so people can find you!

*Please note: these posts are not a reflection of my own opinions on the books featured. Each blogger is responsible for their own MMGM content and I do not pre-screen posts ahead of time, nor do I control what books they choose. I simply assemble the list based on the links that are emailed to me ahead of time.

  2. Good luck on your deadline! I didn't do a MMGM post last night either, I wasn't feeling my best. But I did post this morning about creating a great character for your MG book and told a little about my favorite character.

  3. Hi, Shannon. Good luck with your deadline! CONGRATS to the winner!

  4. Hope your writing goes well. Thanks for the list.

  5. Thanks for adding me this week. I really want to be a regular, but my life gets in the way. Congrats on all your success with your current and up and coming novels. I put a request in at my library to get Keeper of the Lost Cities. Looking forward to checking it out.


Yay-I love comments! Thank you so much! (But please remember to keep your comments spoiler-free. Also, I try to keep this a happy, positive place. Any arguing or intense debate--on any subject will be removed. Let's keep this a safe, fun space.
