The MG BookElves are a loose association of authors of books for Middle Grade readers - thus using the hashtag #MGBookElves.

The BookElves grew out of a previous venture led by Sally Harris, author of Diary of a Penguin-napper, in February 2012.  In the autumn of 2013 seven of those authors got together and invited a few more, and ended up as the Twelve BookElves of Christmas.  They produced a month-long promotion and giveaway, with guest interviews and excerpts on each others' webspaces.  You can see the giveaway post here.

The authors involved are: Melanie Abed, Cheryl Carpinello, Rebecca M Douglass, Julie Grasso, Paul Hewlett, Fiona Ingram, M. G. King, Wendy Leighton-Porter, S.W. Lothian, Annaliese Matheron, Jemima Pett, S. Smith, Stanley and Katrina, and Ben Zackheim.
