Blog Sites Promoting Middle-Grade Fiction

I’ve started a list of blog sites that promote middle-grade fiction authors and their work on the assumption that there can never be too many lists. Most of these sites feature book reviews of middle-grade fiction. Some also feature author interviews, guest blogs, and giveaways. A few offer advertising. I’ll add to this list in future blogs.

I welcome your additions and corrections. If the site offers more services or fewer services than I have indicated in my list, or the URL is incorrect, etc., let me know so I can correct the data. Just leave a comment at this blog site or e-mail me at maggielyons66 at gmail dot com.  

Abbreviations: MGR = middle-grade book reviews; E-Bks. = accepts e-books for review; GPs = guest posts; Int. = interviews; Give. = giveaways; Ads. = paid advertising; Lists = book lists; Ann. = announcements; (F) = fantasy only; (R) = guest book reviews; (I) = indies only,

    1. Madelyn,
      My apologies for the delay in replying to you. I added Fromthemixedupfiles.com to the MG Book Bloggers List page on this site a while ago. Thank you so much for pointing out the omission. No list would be complete without mention of this very helpful site.

  5. Holy cabooses! I get requests for this type of information all the time, and I'm so glad to be able to send people to one place. Thank you for doing this! I will spread your page far and wide, and I'm emailing you privately with suggestions for additions.

  6. Wow Maggie! This is awesome.
    Would you please add my website? http://www.BooksThatSow.com
    My book, No Tildes on Tuesday, is about a 13 year old biracial girl who deals with identity issues. My two Journals, Diversity Daybook: Journal & Affirmation Daybook: Journal may be a great fit, too. My platform topics center on Diversity and Bullying issues.

    Thank you - Cherrye S. Vasquez, Ph.D.
