A Happy 6th Year Blogging Anniversary!

What a wild ride!

This weekend marks six years of blogging at ALWAYS in the MIDDLE. Oh Happy Day!

Sorry, no cupcakes to give out as they don’t last too long at my house. What I do have is a big thank you—a giveaway of a new MG release I’m featuring next week: 24 HOURS IN NOWHERE by Dusti Bowling.24hoursinnowhere  Three lucky people will receive the book along with the best kind of bookmark: Your choice of a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card (Use in store and online) or a $25 Amazon gift card.

You can enter by commenting below for one entry and receive another entry by commenting next Monday for my MMGM post—a review of 24 HOURS IN NOWHERE. All are welcome to partake from those who have been with me since the beginning to the few who stumbled across here today by accident.

The winners will be announced the week of September 3rd.

Thanks to all who have visited, commented, and hopefully found one of my reviews or posts helpful. There will be more to come and I hope some day you can read one of my own stories.


Coming up next week is another…
If you would like to join in the MMGM fun, all you have to do is blog about a middle grade book 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 gpcolo (at) gmail (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 (11 PM Eastern Time) in order to be included in the list of links for the coming Monday.
Thanks for spreading the middle grade love and for being a part of this awesome tradition begun by Shannon Messenger and carried on here at ALWAYS in the MIDDLE! (CLICK HERE FOR PAST MMGM POSTS)
*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.

  6. Hello, Greg ~ Congratulations on your six-year blog anniversary! While that is quite an accomplishment, I think the quality of your posts–reviews, news, insights, etc.–is even more noteworthy. Your posts are valuable to me as an author, blogger, and reader; and I appreciate all the time you take to put together the MMGM list each week. Here’s to six more successful years of ‘Always in the Middle’! PS–Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity. :0}

    Librarians, teachers, kids and authors appreciate it. Your blog is the only one I consistently open and read. I love the layout and can tell from your descriptions if the book is my “cup of tea.”
