1. MMGM Links (5/30/16)

Here's this week's MMGM links (sorry if I missed anyone--we lost a kitty today, so my brain is a little shot)

- Mark Baker wants everyone to solve THE MYSTERY OF MEMORIAL DAY. Click HERE to see why
- Andrea Mack is spotlighting JUST LIKE ME. Click HERE to see why. 
- Got My Book has a post on the benefits of audiobooks HERE. And a review of THE IRON TRIAL if you click HERE. 
- Greg Partridge is raving about ALL RISE FOR THE HONORABLE PERRY T. COOK. Click HERE to see what he thought.   
- Rosi Hollinbeck is reviewing--and GIVING AWAY--CICI RENO: #MIDDLESCHOOLMATCHMAKER. Click HERE for details. 
- Karen Yingling also always has some awesome MMGM recommendations for you. Click HERE to which ones she picked this time.
- Joanne Fritz always has an MMGM for you. Click HERE to see what she's talking about this week. 
- The Mundie Moms are always huge supporters of middle grade. Click HERE for their Mundie Kids site.


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.

We're officially in the "No Sleep For Shannon" point in the deadline zone, (and about 4 weeks from the release of LET THE WIND RISE as an added bonus) so it's possible these MMGM links are nonsensical. But here they are none the less!

Also, it should be noted that the list of Things I Am Behind On is reaching epic length, and it includes things like goodreads 'ask the author' questions,  tumblr asks, moderating the comments on this blog on the Team Keeper pages, and fan mail. WHICH IS NOT A COMPLAINT. I love love love hearing from you guys. But wowza do I need you to be patient with me. I am drowning over here.

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!

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.

Okay, seriously HOW IS IT ALREADY FEBRUARY????  AND HOW AM I STILL WRESTLING SO MANY DEADLINES???

Ahem.

Sorry. Just seriously, where is the pause button? Or the TARDIS??? Or my genie with three wishes????

Ahem again.

Anyway, before I get to the links, I have one quick, exciting piece of news: it was announced today that Keeper of the Lost Cities is nominated for the California Young Readers Medal, which is just... such an amazing honor. The two books it's nominated with sound amazing (and have now been added to my TBR pile) so I'm sure it'll be some stiff competition. But regardless of how it all works out next year, when all the votes are cast, it's seriously such an incredible thing to have my book on this list and to get this kind of support. So thank you California. Thank you thank you thank you!

And...that's enough Shannon-gushing. On to MMGM!

Argh--anyone else still typing "2015" for the year and having to change it? Or is that just me. :)

And I'm back to being the broken record about deadlines, so I'll spare you the whine and instead just give a quick reminder that I am actually leaving the house this weekend. I'll be in AZ for Changing Hands YAllapalooza at their Tempe store on Sat, from 4-6 pm. If you're in the area, I hope to see you there! More details on my events page.

Okay, on to MMGM!

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.

Somehow I ended up with four different deadlines this week--so things are DEFINITELY crazypants. But I still found time to throw together the MMGM links (sorry in advance if there are mistakes in them)

But before I get to that, a couple of quick update-ish things that aren't really updates at all. More like reminders. Or maybe pleas? Not sure. But here goes:

- I *know* you guys are dying for info on Keeper #5. I *know* you want to know the title and see the cover and have the plot description and basically you just want the book RIGHT NOW. And I LOVE your enthusiasm. BUT. I'm also seriously drowning in messages asking me for that kind of info. And the thing is, I'm still writing the book. I haven't seen the final cover. I do know the tile, but I'm not allowed to share it yet. So basically: PATIENCE. All will be revealed in time. :) 

- Related to that--I am officially more than a year behind on fanmail, and it's surely only going to get worse given the crazy schedule I have in the months ahead. SORRY. I'm *definitely* not saying that to discourage you from writing to me. I love your letters. And I will do my best to reply. But please make sure you plan on a loooooooooooooooong wait. (And side note: sending additional messages saying DID YOU GET MY MESSAGE--YOU HAVEN'T REPLIED?!?!? actually gets you a slower answer because of the way my email gets sorted. Every new message that comes in goes to the end of the line. And if it's related to another message, it gets linked with that and BOTH messages go to the end of the line. So I know it's an insanely long wait--and again, I'm super sorry. But please please please bear with me and wait for my reply without re-sending)

Okay, phew! Can we tell my inbox has been explode-y lately? :)

19. Elsewhere

As the rain outside begins to turn to snow, my mind seems to be slowing down and coming up empty this evening. So I send you elsewhere:

  • An entertaining essay at Aeon about why English is such a weird language. If you are offended by Scandinavians being called “Scandies” do not read it, though they get high praise for contributing to the weirdness as do the Celts and the Normans.

  • Rebecca Solnit’s response to the Esquire Magazine list of 80 books every man should read. In a nutshell: “I looked at that list and all unbidden the thought arose, no wonder there are so many mass murders.”
  • Enjoy!

    Couple of quick updates before I get to MMGM.

    First, today is the last day to take advantage of my Black Swagday giveaway--which is also the last swag giveaway I'll be doing for several months. For details on how it works, go HERE.

    Also, I haven't added this to my event page because it was a bit uncertain at points. But for those wondering, yes, I WILL be in Paris for Salon de Livre in Montreuil. I'm still getting the final details from Lumen (my publisher) on when all my signings and interviews are. But I can say I'll be at the Book Fair on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (December 4-6). And they've made some awesome posters and buttons as giveaways, so if you'll be in Paris, I hope to see you there! A

    Related to that--I can't guarantee that there will be an MMGM roundup next week. I'll TRY, but between the nine hour time difference, a zillion events, and spotty wi-fi, there's a decent chance it might not happen. Apologies in advance if that's the case and thanks for bearing with me. Things will be back to normal the following week once I'm back in the States.

    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.
