SCBWI's Blueboard - A Message & Chat Board

From the Mixed-Up Files...of Middle Grade Authors

Discussion started on

We've practically bitten our fingernails off in anticipation, be we can now announce our new group blog and website dedicated to MG books.

Please join us at http://www.fromthemixedupfiles.com/!

And because we love books, we're starting the site off with a bang.  We're giving away NINE signed middle-grade books to one lucky reader!  Here's the link to the giveaway: http://www.fromthemixedupfiles.com/2010/06/our-first-post-and-our-first-giveaway/

You'd better hurry over and see what other cool things we have hidden in our files.

Go MG!

(Mods, feel free to move this to a better spot, if needed.)

Fabulous job, Elissa!

Thanks, but the real kudos should go to the others, who've done 99% of the work.  I only divvied up assignments and sat back to watch the magic happen.

Wow, great blog! Makes me wish I wrote MG. But I LOVE reading MG and have an eight-year-old who does too, so I'll be making your site a regular visit. Congrats on launching a blog that I'm sure will become a staple in the MG community!  :chickendance :chickendance :chickendance
