MMGM Links (7/15/13)

Yet another week without an MMGM--sorry. I've got Comic Con this week so things are a bit chaotic around here, trying to pack up again (still trying to decide if I'll be Cosplaying...) But in the meantime, I have links!

Also, I've been TOTALLY remiss in mentioning that the KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES ebook is on sale for $1.99. Not sure how much longer the deal will last, so if you'd like to take advantage (or help me spread the word), here's some handy 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 I see it)

NOTE: I used to not have a cut-off time for adding links to the post, but with how insane my schedule is right now, if you don't email me by Sunday evening (usually around 11pm PST is when I put the links together) I can't guarantee I'll have a chance to add you. BUT, you are welcome to add your link in the comments on this post so people can find you!

*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 posts 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 ahead of time


  1. Oh, phooey! I had an MMGM fail. I mean, I have one up and forgot to contact Shannon last night. Here's my link for "A Measure of Disorder." :)

  2. I have my e-copy of Keeper.

    I'll check out these links.

  3. Oh, yay! Grabbed a copy, Shannon, and posted notice on my FB page.

  4. Thanks for all the links and for letting us know your book is on sale!

  5. Thanks for the links. Awesome how much traveling you're doing to promote your books.

  6. Nice links Shannon and enjoy Comic Con.

  7. OMG I love keeper I just finished reading and I couldn't put it down. I read the whole thing in about 4 hours. I love it. P.S I'm team Fitz!


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.
