MMGM Links (10/12/15)

Just got home 20 minutes ago after the longest travel day EVER (had SO much fun at the Bar Harbor Children's Book Festival though). So I'm putting these links together on ZERO brainpower. Sorry if they're a mess.

Oh, and keep an eye on my blog this week. I have ALL THE EXCITING NEVERSEEN THINGS HAPPENING.

ALSO, if you didn't see it on my social media a couple of days ago, there was THIS announcement:

Yes--that's right! There will be a fifth book in the KEEPER series! And here's a TINY bit about the book from Publisher's Marketplace (very, very little, since we don't want to put any NEVERSEEN spoilers in) 

Okay--on 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.
