The Endorsements are In for Mind over Madi

So I hope you don't mind, but I will be posting several updates on my novel over the next few weeks as I prepare for it's release. I promise to try to balance them with posts about other authors, books, and helpful information. Oh -and remember to watch for my annual giveaway over Thanksgiving weekend! For the past three years it's been a nice gift card. This year, it will be even better than that, so stay tuned!

I hope to have the final cover photo in the next week, but today I'd like to share something cool. Endorsements for Mind over Madi are in, from five excellent authors I admire (and you'll likely recognize), as well as from my editor, Ramona Tucker, who fell in love with Madi from the moment she read my manuscript and has been cheering me on ever since! Check out what they have to say about my book:

"With a smart, snappy style, Lynda Lee Schab delivers an entertaining tale in Mind over Madi. Be prepared for chuckles aplenty as Madi learns a hard-won lesson about trust."
         --Virginia Smith, author of Third Time’s a Charm and the Sister-to-Sister Series

"Lynda Lee Schab is a new and fresh addition to Christian fiction. In Mind Over Madi, she combines her own distinctive author voice with humor and thought-provoking storytelling. I laughed right out loud in places, and experienced the ministry of the Holy Spirit in others. I’m eager to see what’s next from Lynda Lee Schab."  
        -- Sandra D. Bricker, best-selling and award-winning author of Always the Baker, Never the Bride, the first in a four-book series

"Lynda Lee Schab’s Mind over Madi is a fast, fun read in the tradition of classic chick lit. Madison 'Madi' McCall lives in an ordinary world yet dreams of being a fairy tale princess. In her quest to find her inner princess, Madi faces her responsibilities and the stresses that crowd her life. Along the way she overcomes challenges, learns to accept God’s grace, and grows her faith."
        --Megan DiMaria, author of Searching for Spice and Out of Her Hands.

"In Mind Over Madi, Lynda Lee Schab pens an engaging story of the proverbial ostrich with her head stuck in the sand. And who hasn't been there a time or two? With doses of humor, gentle insights, and an eclectic supporting cast, Schab had me rooting for heroine Madi to learn the truth that would ultimately set her free. A fast-paced, highly enjoyable story."
        ~ Julie Carobini, author of Fade to Blue

"In this dynamic novel, author Lynda Lee Schab takes readers on a roller-coaster ride of emotions that echo their own scream-inducing moments...all while reminding us that even when it seems the world is off-track, God is in the seat beside us, promising we'll be okay when the ride stops. Reserve space on your 'keepers' shelf for this one!"
        --Loree Lough, award-winning author of 83 books, including reader favorite From Ashes to Honor [#1 in the First Responders series.

"THANK YOU for writing this awesome book. It made me laugh—and cry—at a very poignant time in my life. Mind over Madi will transform the way women look at their insecurities!" 
        - Ramona Tucker, editor, Oak Tara Publishing

MIND OVER MADI releases on November 15.
