Today sees the launch of a really exciting new venture, one I’m thrilled to be a part of. Middle Grade Strikes Back is a new collaborative blog focusing on the best and brightest of books published for the middle grades (roughly 8 – 13 year olds). There’s a fantastic mix of contributors, you can see the list as it stands here.
The site is the brainchild of Darren from The Book Zone (for boys) – he’s done a brilliant job of bringing together so many people passionate about middle grade books.There will be a real mixture of posts including news, reviews, interviews, lists and so many more. These will be from authors, publishers, librarians, bloggers and anyone else who wants to be involved.
I can’t wait to get my first post done, but even more than that I’m excited to see what everyone else will be contributing. There are two posts already:
- Hands Off Our Harry Potter – Middle Grade Is Striking Back!
- Competition: WIN a Pile of Middle Grade Fiction
Here’s to many more!
