March MG Madness- Event Info and Giveaway


Welcome to the March MG Madness event!!!

This is a month long celebration of Middle Grade fiction. MG fiction is usually defined as books geared toward readers 8-12 years of age. MG fiction isn't always as talked about or as well known as YA...but I'm here to change that! I have a fantabulously awesome group of MG authors participating in this event and oodles of author interviews, guest posts, MG book reviews, and GIVEAWAYS to share with all of you!!!

Below you will find a tentative schedule of posts pertaining to this event and the big, month long giveaway.

SCHEDULE OF POSTS -each post will include- (M MG M) - in its title
(may be changed or added to)
**I will update this list daily with links to each post as they are posted***
3/16:  Review: Mist 
          Closing Post


There will be various giveaways offered throughout the month, as you can see from the schedule above, but I will also be having a month long giveaway featuring the following prize packs...

There will be two US only prize packs consisting of a box of 5 MG books each and two international prizes consisting of various swag:

The swag packs will feature an assortment of swag-some signed- such as bookmarks, postcards, small posters, stickers, etc

Giveaway will run from 3/1 - 4/1
There will be 4 winners:

(2) Swag Packs- open internationally
Fill out Rafflecopter form to enter
  • Must be 13+ to enter
  • One main entry per person
  • Winners will be emailed and must claim prize within 48 hours
  • I am NOT responsible for lost or damaged prizes in the mail
You will have the chance to earn extra entries by answering questions based on the various interviews or guest posts or by commenting on certain reviews...meaning that you will have to visit these specific posts as they are posted throughout the month. These questions will be labeled with a number in the Rafflecopter form below and will be in the order that the posts will be posted. I will update the links in the form as each post is posted.


I've also decided to offer 5 points for each MG review you write during the month of March (up to 25 points or 5 reviews), in order to promote the actual reading of MG books! All you have to do is write a review of ANY MG book (new, old, ARC, etc) and post it somewhere (blog, Goodreads, Amazon, B&N) then leave a link to each review in the appropriate place on the Rafflecopter form. Your review must be more than just a rating! Your review doesn't have to be long (a paragraph is enough), but it must show that you actually read the book.


GOOD LUCK!!!
