MMGM Links (9/30/13)

One day,  guys.




I am so excited--and I can't believe it's almost here--or that I'm already on tour--or that I'm still in the deadline cave! (yes, things are SUPER HECTIC right now).

So clearly I have no MMGM. But I do have links.

But first--a few reminders. Today is the LAST day to claim your swag in my pre-order giveaway. If you pre-ordered EXILE and you haven't filled out THIS FORM, you better get on that by midnight tonight. Also, if you live in the midwest and want to come hang out with me, click HERE for all the dates/times/places you can find me.

Also, make sure you check back tomorrow because I have a VERY AWESOME contest starting and you won't want to miss out.

Okay, I think that covers all the shamelessly self promotional updates--on to the links!*

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. Congrats on Exile's release. Can't wait for tomorrow!

  2. Eek on the release! Thanks for the links!

  3. Congratulations on the release of your great new book! Enjoy the day. Thanks for the MMGM list.


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.
