WELCOME TO 2013!!!

Hard to believe a new year has arrived already. MIDDLE GRADE MANIA has become a vital resource in locating and contacting blogs that promote middle grade fiction. I'm happy to announce that in 2013, MGM will start posting weekly highlights about blogs, books, authors and booksellers. So stay tuned for some awesome developments! And HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Tuesday, July 3, 2012


In the first three months of MIDDLE GRADE MANIA'S existence, the directory of Middle Grade Book blogs has already grown from approximately 80 participating blogs to 127!!! Wow!

MGM has great things in store for both bloggers and readers. Some things we are considering include offering blog tours, a newsletter, participating blog spotlights, a more comprehensive directory and guest posts. But before we can move forward, we need to get to know all of you a little better.

So, if you are a Middle Grade book blogger, please consider filling out the questionnaire below. This information will help MIDDLE GRADE MANIA become the best resource of its kind on the web!

Also, please spread the word about us. You can do that by adding our button to your blogsite, tweeting this message, or posting our link on Facebook.

Thank you so much for your support and participation! As always, if you have any questions, feel free to email me at laurisawhitereyes at yahoo dot com.

Welcome To Middle Grade Mania

What is Middle Grade Mania?

Middle Grade Mania is a directory of book blogs that promote fiction written for middle grade readers. To be included in this directory, blogs must do one or more of the following:

Review Middle Grade Novels
Post Interviews with Middle Grade Authors
Write About Topics Pertaining to Middle Grade Fiction
Be a Published Author of Middle Grade Fiction
Participate in Middle Grade Book Tours

Note: Blogs do not have to be exclusively Middle Grade to participate.

This directory is intended as a resource for librarians, teachers, parents, readers, bloggers, authors and anyone interested in joining the realm of middle grade fiction.

If you are an author trying to promote your book via these blogs, please follow the following guidelines:

1.  Read each blog's review guidelines and follow them.
2.  Be polite. Bloggers are not required to review your book. A review is a courtesy.
3.  Be responsible. Middle Grade Mania is not responsible for anything other than providing the information posted here. So please do not contact us with questions or complaints about any individual blog - unless the blog in question no longer exists or is clearly NOT a middle grade blog.

If you are not on this list and would like to be included, please send me an email with a link to your blog. Please specify if you are a published author of middle grade fiction. If your blog meets the above criteria, I will add it. If you are on the list and would like to be removed, also send me an email with your request. laurisawhitereyes at yahoo dot com

At this time, Middle Grade Mania is not arranging blog tours for authors. However, this may be an option in the future. If you are a blogger and would be willing to participate in blog tours, please fill out my interest form HERE. Thank you.
