Mind Over Madi

UPDATED: 11/23/11 Congrats to Lauri! You're the winner of Mind Over Madi. Woo-hoo! Thanks, everyone, for playing!

Fellow ACFW member, Lynda Lee Schab, and I met online several years ago after she read one of my books and dropped me a note. (Thankfully, it wasn't a scathing review or anything, ha ha.) I'm SO excited to announce that Lynda has a book of her own now, Mind Over Madi, published by OakTara.

Here's the blurb:
All men cheat. At least, that's what Madi's mother has always told her. Madi McCall admits her husband lacks a little in the romance department, but all in all, he's been a good husband, a good father. Now, though, she suspects Rich is having an affair with Fawn Witchburn, the mother of one of his fourth-grade students. To say Fawn shows off her "assets" more than should be legally allowed in public is an understatement, and Madi's insecurities kick into high gear. When, in a heated moment, she asks Rich to leave and he complies, Madi is forced to deal with her issues. Issues of love and trust she's tried so hard to avoid. Issues that trail all the way back to her childhood and make her act like a total moron.

Julie here. I've got an extra copy and would love for one of my readers to have it for the holidays. Just comment on this post with your email address AND tell me what time your family has Thanksgiving dinner. (I won't be showing up or anything ... just checking to see who's paying attention :) I'll let you know the winner's name on Wednesday at noon, PST.

Now, go forth and comment! (p.s. Just learned that IE sometimes prevents people from commenting. Until I figure out why, try Mozilla. Works great :)

Sounds like a fun read. We generally shoot for 2:00 PM on Thanksgiving Day. Have a great holiday.


Stephanie said...

We try for just after the Lions game, so no one gets distracted. So we'll try for 4 pm. Lived in Michigan all my life, so Thanksgiving means church on Wed night and watching the Lions on Thursday. Even the women watch on Thanksgiving.


Julie Carobini said...

My friend and I debated over what time to have dinner for our families and settled on 4 pm. We're hoping the rain will let up (it's supposed to rain that day) so everyone can walk off their dinner and have room for PIE. :)

Keep the comments coming!

Thanks for doing the giveaway, Julie. Hope you get lots of entries and that the winner enjoys my book!
We're having 18 people over this year and will be eating at 2:00, but the grazing will continue well into the evening. :-)

We usually have our dinner at 1:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving. But oh the smells begin way before then! We drool for several hours before we can sit down and dig in! Funny how it takes hours to prepare a meal that is eaten in less than 30 minutes! Love it!

Diane said...

Yeah for Lynda!!! We're eating at 1. Kinda early but plenty of time to recuperate and go back for seconds at dinnertime! :O)

I'd LOVE to win Mind Over Madi and get to know the style/art of Lynda's writing.
I do understand insecurities because my husband tells me (doesn't matter what topic) that I read more into a conversation or activity than what is actually there.
My Dad is cooking the turkey this year. They live 150 miles away and he said dinner will be served at 1 PM. HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU TOO!
and thanks for the opportunity to win.

Will just be my daughter, son a friend and me this yr and we hope to eat around 1:30. This way we can have leftovers for dinner. lol. It seems like we always have to many different dishes and can't really taste them all at one time so spread it out along with the desserts for two meals.
Thanks for the opportunity to enter giveaway.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving Day with family and friends.

Looking forward to reading this book. Great author! Our family is planning to eat around 11:30.

Julie Carobini said...

11:30, Deborah? Wow! Somebody has to get up pretty early in the mornin' :)

Jo said...

We are probably going to eat around 2:30 on Thanksgiving Day. Have good friends coming over to spend the day.

Diane said...

We're eating at 4:00 since Ron and Don will be driving in from Ohio.
Dinner is at our house...wish all of you could be here too!
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us,

I was totally drawn to your post because I saw the name Madi. Because I have a beautiful daughter named that I wanted to see what this book about Madi was about! :)
We usually eat when there is a break in the football action, probably late afternoon.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

Mind Over Madi sounds like a great story, I'd love to be entered. We eat at 2PM, plenty of time for more food, fellowship and games.
