MMGM Links (10/26/15)

We're almost there, guys. The NEVERSEEN launch party is THIS Friday. As in five days from today. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN???

In case you live in SoCal--and missed the details when I posted them a few weeks back--here's the launch party info again:

And, a couple of other big reminders:

My fall tour dates have been posted, so if you live near Beaverton, Oregon, Seattle, Washington, San Jose, California, Tempe, Arizona, and Idaho Falls, Idaho, go HERE for event times and locations.

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 have read Everblaze again. Can't wait to receive my copy of Neverseen from the book store! And, am thrilled there will be a fifth book. Good luck with your book launch this week. Hope your travel to the midwest when you tour. Need to sign up and participate in your Marvelous Middle Grade Mondays.

  2. Thanks again, Shannon, for doing this every week. Good luck with your Neverseen launch.


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.
