Middle-Grade Rocks!

I am thrilled to be part of a new blog that celebrates middle-grade books. Hop on over to http://www.fromthemixedupfiles.com/ and join our lively discussion about everything middle-grade. We realized that the internet was filled with YA groups, and wanted to create an online home for this amazing age group as well.

Today, we have an interview with Danette Haworth, who recently released her second middle-grade novel, The Summer of Moonlight Secrets. Wow, what an amazing cover! I can't wait to read her book. Check out her interview to see how you can win a signed copy.

Scroll down to our June 9th post, and check out Tales of a Fourth Grade Reader, by Joanne Prushing Johnson. Browse her list of favorite books for ten year-olds and share some of your own.

Shh...secret peek at tomorrow. Hop on by to read about all the fantastic June middle-grade releases!

Our first post was on June 7th, and gives details about our launch contest, where one lucky person will win NINE signed books. Wow! I can't wait to see who will walk away with all those amazing middle-grade novels. I'm crossing my fingers and toes and wishing all of you good luck!

FL SCBWI--I didn't forget you! I've been super busy since I came back from the Mid-Year Workshop, and plan to post photos plus workshop and intensive notes soon. It was wonderful seeing so many of you there. What a fantastic weekend! In the next few days, I'll also blog about the upcoming Miami Conference, which will be held on January 14-16. I hope to see you there! Those of you looking for an agent will definitely want to keep the dates open, because we have three amazing agents joining us in Miami. I'll list them soon, but here's a huge hint...one is only open by referral or to writers she has met at conferences.

Mindy,
I don't know how you do it all! So glad you're part of From the Mixed-Up Files.

Fantastic Site!
Agreed! Middle Grade rocks! I just recently stumbled upon the "Mixed Up Files" and what a treat -- we needed a place like this. I am seeking a rep for my completed MG mss and this is a useful site to check in with. All the best, B Jas

Re: Fantastic Site!
I'm glad the Mixed-Up Files site is helpful to you. It's nice to see MG getting this much online attention!

Have you checked out Verla Kay's Blueboards? There's loads of great agent and market info on there, too. Here's a link: http://www.verlakay.com/boards/index.php You can also research agents on agentquery.com and querytracker.com.

Good luck with your agent search!
