Tuesday Promotion in Motion: Madily In Love by Lynda Lee Schab

Posted by Lisa Lickel on December 4, 2012

About the Book:

All Madi Lee McCall wants is to fall madly in love again…with her husband.

After a rough patch, Madi’s determined to get her marriage back on track. She’s even taking a romance class at church and getting great suggestions…that fail miserably. The distractions are plenty. She has just reentered the workplace as a health spa receptionist. Her 16-year-old daughter, Christina, is pushing the limits, and Christina’s twin, Max, has fallen hard for a girl who isn’t Madi’s picture of a perfect match for her son. Even younger daughter, Emily, is developing a teenager-ish attitude.

When her mother-in-law moves in—temporarily, of course—the stress starts to drive Madi a little crazier than normal. What she wants, more than anything, is some peace among the chaos.

“Lynda Schab captures what’s real in women, taking us up and down the roller coaster of Madi’s life with wit and wisdom.” -Christa Allan, author of Walking on Broken Glass and The Edge of Grace

About the Author:

 Lynda Lee Schab got her writing start in greeting cards (Blue Mountain Arts, Dayspring) and from there went on to write articles and short stories (Mature Living, Christian Home & School) and in many places online (including http://www.examiner.com/ and http://www.wow-womenonwriting.com/). As a freelance writer, she works behind the scenes at FaithWriters.com and is a regular book reviewer for FaithfulReader.com. She is also the Grand Rapids Christian Fiction Examiner and the National Writing Examiner for Examiner.com and a staff writer for http://www.sharedsorrows.com/. Mind Over Madi placed second in the 2008 ACFW Genesis contest, chick lit category, received a highly commended award in the FaithWriters Page Turner contest, and was a finalist in the 2007 RWA Get your Stiletto in the Door contest. Madily in Love was a semi-finalist in the 2011 ACFW Genesis contest. Lynda admits she has a lot in common with the character of Madi. Not only are they both addicted to ice cream, chocolate, and computer games, they struggle with the same types of insecurities and continually require a hefty dose of God’s grace. Lynda lives with her husband, Rob, and two teenagers in Michigan.

A brief interview with the author:

What do you love about this book?

I love the whole series, mainly because of one thing. It’s the same reason I’ve been hearing from readers: It’s real. Okay, so some events are a bit dramatized and over-the-top, but generally, Madi is every woman. She’s definitely me. Her addiction to chocolate, her poor attempts at handling stress, her sometimes not-so-Christianly responses to people and situations. I wanted to show that our weaknesses, our mistakes, our foolishness can’t erase the fact that God loves us. Such a revelation!

 

Tell us what new thing you learned during the research, writing, or publication process of this particular book.

That I really can meet a deadline! Hoping that will also be the case with the third book in the series. As of right now, I’m way behind schedule. I have lots of work to do!

 

What should your readers discover and want to share with their family and friends after reading this book? 

Besides the reminder that God loves them despite their quirks and failures, I hope readers remember one of the recurring phrases in the book: Embrace this Place. In other words, even when life gets ridiculously crazy and overwhelming, we need to remember that “this too shall pass.” And, most likely, we’ll realize how that craziness was exactly what we needed to change and grow into who God wants us to be or learn something He wants to teach us.

Oh, and one more thing: I hope readers take away the fun—and not the frustration—of trying to add a little spice to their marriages!
