This is Day 4 of my Character Reveal series for my next book—title TBA soon. I’ll post a new character and a one-question T/F Quiz each Wednesday until I run out of characters. Those who comment most AND answer the most questions correctly will receive a signed book (bookplate sent separately–50 copies up for grabs) and a chance at 1 of 2 $10.00 Gift Certificates. At the end of each week, I’ll announce the winners. The books and the CG’s will be sent out upon publication. Sorry, but I can only send paper books to U.S. However, I can send eBooks to international followers. If you win a book, you’re entered to win one of the Gift Certificates.
To enter, leave a comment and type the answer to the quiz at the end of your comment (A, B, or C) I’ve left links to the previous post if you’re joining me late, so you can work your way back if you want to see the other posts and comment to win. Here’s last week’s POST.
Last week’s winners are: Sandra Cox and Liz A. Keep visiting to win the GC!
Meet Mrs. Bancroft
Last week, if you stopped in, you met Taylor Bancroft. Today here’s her mom. Mrs. Brancroft is a dedicated parent. She never misses a practice or a meet, and she never fails to encourage her daughter to do her best. In fact, she insists Taylor must always have a “positive attitude.”
That would be a good thing if she didn’t also criticize Taylor’s teammates. She may think others don’t hear her remarks, but they do, and Taylor takes the rap for it.
Mrs. Bancroft isn’t a bad mom. She’s one who wants the very best for her daughter, and that is usually the characteristic of what’s been labeled “helicopter mom.”
Quiz: What generation in the U.S. usually makes up what we call “helicopter moms”?
A. The women who grew up in the late 70s, early 80s called the “latch key” kids.
B. The women who were from single-parent homes.
C. The women who were orphaned early in life.
