Win a copy of Skid!

I know I've got too much going on when I forget I have an extra copy of a book to give away! I actually had an extra copy of Skid by Rene Gutteridge

to give away, and forgot all about it when I posted about the book a couple of days ago. So anyone who leaves a comment on either this blog post or the last one will be entered in my drawing. Don't forget to leave a way for me to contact you!

You can check out my summary on the previous post, or read this from Amazon.com:
Blissfully unaware that Atlantica Flight 1945 from Atlanta to Amsterdam is about to make aviation history, First Officer Danny McSweeney focuses his energies on navigating the turbulent personalities of an eccentric female captain, a co-pilot with a talent for tactless comments and conspiracy theories, and a lead flight attendant with an outsized attitude that definitely exceeds the limits for carry-on baggage.

On the other side of the cockpit door, the unscheduled in-flight entertainment includes a potbellied pig, a jittery diamond courier, and the recently jilted Lucy Meredith, whose personal mantra of “What Would Oprah Do?” will be challenged by the sudden appearance of her ex and his new traveling partner. On her left sits Hank Hazard, whose unusually polite but constant requests–prompted by his covert role as a spy for the airline–test the limits of the crew’s customer service.

But as Lucy and the rest of the crew discover, Hank’s odd behavior is linked to a quiet faith that may play a key role in the fate of everyone on board. Especially when an unexpected traveler sets this already bumpy flight on a course toward the unfriendly skies.

Hi Melanie! Excellent review. I'm not a good flyer so a book with a bumpy route to unfriendly skies might not help. Still, it sounds like a fun read.

I've read Rene and love her work. Please enter me in the drawing.

Rene's writing was one of my first introductions to Christian fiction. The Boo series was a riot! I absolutely loved the whole premise.

Made me stop an think. It would be fun to write something like that.

I had a paid critique with her @ the 2006 ACFW and got to sit in on one of her POV sessions and a late night session on humor.

Count me in! I would be delighted to have a copy of "Skid"
