Whoopee! Celebrate! Party Time!

Yes, it has been four years since I made my first MMGM post and five years since I began ALWAYS in the MIDDLE. Thanks to everyone who has visited. The growth in this short time is nothing short of amazing.

As a token of my appreciation it’s time for a big GIVEAWAY. On the line is a chance to win one of these four recent MG hardback books, each with your choice of a special bookmark (either a $25 Starbucks, $25 Amazon, or $25 Barnes and Noble gift card):



I’ll draw the four winning names on Sunday, September 3rd at 1 PM EDT.

All followers will receive one entry and a comment below is another way to enter. Good luck to everyone and I’m looking forward to many more years providing reviews, writing support, and giveaways… and some day having my own stories published.

    Congratulations! I’m so happy to have found you and I always love reading your posts, especially your favorite quotes from the books. I’ve found many middle grade books on your posts to check out. You’ve inspired me to start writing down lines that I find move me emotionally or just plain make me think. Thanks for the chance to get a present when it’s your party!
