MMGM Links (11/3/14)


I kinda can't believe it.

So if you're in SoCal, I hope you'll join us tonight for the Launch Party. Here's all the details, in case you missed it:

And TOMORROW is when EVERBLAZE officially releases. That's also when I leave for the 10-Day tour--it you're in Colorado, Utah, Texas, or Arizona, see my EVENTS PAGE for where to catch me. So please bear with me during the next couple of weeks, launch time is both exciting and SUPER DUPER hectic.

I will still do my best to keep up with MMGM, though. And here are this week's 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 it gets sorted accurately) You MUST email me your link by Sunday evening in order to be included in the list of links. (usually before 11pm PST is safe--but if I'm traveling it can vary. When in doubt, send early!)

If you miss the cutoff, you are welcome to add your link in the comments on this post so people can find you, but I will not have time to update the post. Same goes for typos/errors on my part. I do my best to build the links correctly, but sometimes deadline-brain gets the best of me, and I'm sorry if it does. For those wondering why I don't use a Linky-widget instead, it's a simple matter of internet safety. The only way I can ensure that all the links lead to safe, appropriate places for someone of any age is if I build them myself. It's not a perfect system, but it allows me to keep better control.

Thank you so much for being a part of this awesome meme, and spreading the middle grade love!

*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 reviews 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. 


  1. I'm spreading the word about your November 5th visit to the Barnes and Noble in Boulder. CO. Just 20 minutes from me! The weather is terrible today, but just for you the sun is returning by Wednesday. Best of luck as you kick off your Fall tour. If the cards line up that day (Meaning: If a 3 p.m. meeting doesn't drag on forever) I'll stop by and say hello. Of course I will also pick up a copy of your new book.

  2. I can't wait to read Everblaze. Hope you have a wonderful launch party.

  3. Good luck with your new baby. Congratulations. Hope it's a great success.

  4. Congrats on Everblaze! If you ever find your way to Nebraska, please blog about it before you show up. I'd love to meet you!!

  5. Congrats! I just finished Everblaze a few days ago. Amazing!


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.
