Mad About MG History, A blog about middle grade historical fiction, is officially launched. In my New Year’s post I mentioned that I have been invited to participate with a group of historical fiction authors in writing a new blog directed toward history teachers and librarians. Here is a link to check it out: http://madaboutmghistory.blogspot.com.
On the initial New Year’s Day posting, you will meet Chris Eboch. She is the originator of the blog. She explains the intent of the website in this first posting. On the right, you will see a partial list of the original ten contributors. Click on a name to go to a page about that author’s work, including mine. In the slide show visible above the author’s names, you will see Eagle Talons, The Iron Horse Chronicles–Book One flash by in the presentation.
My first blog post is scheduled to appear on January 22. Please take a look at it and let me know what you think. Although the blog is oriented toward middle grade history teachers and librarians, I believe anyone will enjoy reading the posts. Writers, and would-be writers, of historical fiction aimed at the youth market, will find interesting items to challenge their thinking and encourage their own efforts.
This first post by Chris Eboch on Mad About MG History contains information on how to submit a book for review or how to request an invitation to be a guest blogger. The general plan is to post a new blog twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Click on the “Subscribe To” link to be notified each time a post appears.
