MMGM Links (2/2/15)

Before I get to the MMGM links, a couple quick updates, since last week had some exciting stuff happen!

If you missed it, the cover for NEVERSEEN has been revealed. Go HERE to see the gorgeousness.

Also, for those who've been dying to know when Let the Sky Fall #3 is going to come out, my Editor answered your question (albeit slightly vaguely) with this tweet:

(And yeah, I know that's a year later than you were probably hoping for--SORRY. I'm a wee bit behind on deadlines. But it's still happening. And I promise I'll use that extra time to make it as awesome as possible.)

And that's it. Just lots of writing writing writing (yes, I AM still in the deadline cave--sigh). So here's your  MMGM 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.
