MMGM Links (9/6/15)

STILL trying to reach The End of LET THE WIND RISE (wrapping up a trilogy is hard!). But here's an attempt at this week's MMGM links--oh, but before we get to that, I wanted to make sure you guys knew that the EVERBLAZE ebook is on sale for $1.99. Yes--ITS TRUE!

And, just to make it even easier for you guys to take advantage, here's some handy dandy links:

Okay--back to the 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 on a Monday (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--and please don't forget to say what book you're featuring) You MUST email me your link by Sunday evening in order to be included in the list of links for the coming Monday. (usually before 11pm PST is safe--but if I'm traveling it can vary. When in doubt, send early!) (Also make sure the post you send me is a new post, not one from earlier in the week. I try to keep the content fresh)

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 can't wait for my local library to get your forth book! I'm supper excited! Also, just a fun idea, what if you made a quiz like thing in the back of book five, ( on the hope that you write another book)and had it supposedly determined if you were an Empath, a polyglot, a inflictor, a pyrokenkt, a telepath, a tecnopath, a vanisher, a guster, or any of the other special abilities(asuming I even spelled any of this right, silly spell check), I think it could be AWESOME. Anna ~ keep on writing!


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.
