MMGM Links (2/18/13)


Yes, that's right--according to my editor, LTSF #2 is now officially done (well, until copyedits and first pass and stuff--but I'm not going to focus on that!!!!)

BUT, I didn't finish until Friday and then had a TON of junk to catch up on so, ALAS, I have MMGM today. I WILL have something awesome next week. But today, I just have links.

Also: don't forget, I'm running a special pre-order giveaway for LET THE SKY FALL (where EVERYONE wins stuff) so make sure you go HERE.

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


  1. Awesome that you got through yet another deadline!

  2. Hooray! And my MMG Monday post is Athlete vs. Mathlete, which is great for boys who like sports.
