#BIR2010 – Book Giveaway: Freefall by Mindi Scott + Interview

Welcome to Author Mindi Scott. 

Mindi released her debut novel Freefall on October 5th.


If you could meet one person who has died who would you choose?
My dad. He didn’t die until I was four, so I wouldn’t be meeting him for the first time. But I have only a few memories of him that are my own; almost everything I know about him is from what people have told me.

What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast?
Soup. (I don’t like breakfast-type foods very much.)

What is on your mousepad?
Denise Jaden’s Losing Faith cover art.

Favorite Cartoon?
Star Wars – The Clone Wars

What is the last movie you saw?
Pirate Radio

What is the last book you read?
One Night that Changed Everything by Lauren Barnholdt

You have won one million dollars what is the first thing that you would buy?
The house up the street from me. It’s twice the size of mine and has a tiny yard (a major plus, in my mind), and I’ve been coveting it since it went on the market this summer. Want. New. House. Badly.

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Ben & Jerry’s Phish Food.

What was the first book you read?
It was a learn-to-read book in Kindergarten, but I don’t remember the name. The first book I read at home on my own was Go, Dog. Go! which I JUST NOW realized is by P.D. Eastman and not Dr. Seuss.

How do you react to a bad review?
Of my book? Well, it depends. If it’s a critical review that’s well written and well-thought out, I think, How interesting and ponder which parts, if any, that I agree with. If it’s a negative review that is totally knee-jerk, doesn’t say anything constructive, or is so off-base that I have to wonder if they actually even read my book, I check through some of their other reviews and feel superior when I see that they’ve (inevitably) written a gushing review of My Least Favorite Book of All Time.

If you could be any author, who would you like to be?
I would like to be me! Just with more money so I could write full time and have in the aforementioned house.

Skittles or M&Ms?
The answer to this until about a year ago was M&Ms. Now I love, love, love Skittles. I like Starbursts even better, though.

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.
It’s narrated by a really cute boy! 😉

Freefall by Mindi Scott:
How do you come back from the point of no return?

Seth McCoy was the last person to see his best friend, Isaac, alive, and the first to find him dead. It was just another night, just another party, just another time when Isaac drank too much and passed out on the lawn. Only this time, Isaac didn’t wake up.

Convinced that his own actions led to his friend’s death, Seth is torn between turning his life around . . . or losing himself completely.

Then he meets Rosetta: so beautiful and so different from everything and everyone he’s ever known. But Rosetta has secrets of her own, and Seth soon realizes he isn’t the only one who needs saving . . .
