Erotic Notions on the Black Friday BlogHop - #BkFriHop

To start - I'm Canadian and we don't "celebrate" Black Friday - we sit back and watch the U.S. shopping frenzy. 

 Some brave souls do venture into the States to try their hand that this craziness. But most of us prefer to watch it on TV, like the Santa Claus Parade. Sit back and watch the news clips of people lined up at midnight hoping to be the first few in the store to snag the 80" Plasma Screen for $20. (or whatever the insane price is)

 This is the headline and first line of a news items - it is dated Nov 20th, 2012.

Shoppers line up for sales days ahead of Black Friday

Although it's still days away, American shoppers are already lining up outside stores and pitching tents as they wait for Black Friday sales.

Strange, how a morbid term - Black Friday - has morphed into meaning "shopping nirvana."

Here's hoping it stays "nirvana" this year and tempers don't flare when 2 different people have a death grip on the latest - and last - "must have" Christmas toy.

So what insanity am I doing for Black Friday? I'm offering one lucky poster all three of my erotic romances.
I'm listing a few "you musts" to get these free books. This is like lining up at midnight.

1. I need your email address. You all are getting better at that - yay you.   
2. List the names of my books. Really want to be sure you know what you are getting.
3. Tell me the name of one of my fish. Feed them if you like - they are always hungry.
4. And tell me why you'd like to win. Not just a cut and paste - Thanks for the chance to win.    

And if you just can't wait - click on the covers - they are linked to a buy site or check the free reads for other buy sites listed.

The blog hop giveaways - 
1st Grand Prize: A Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet
2nd Grand Prize: A $75 Amazon or B&N Gift Card
3rd Grand Prize: A Swag Pack that contains paperbacks, ebooks, 50+ bookmarks, cover flats, magnets, pens, coffee cozies, and more!

  16. not going near any stores today can't take the crowds thanks for hopping! - regnod(at)yahoo(d0t)com

  17. I come to your blog just to feed the fishes. your books are "Sexy Red Hood", "Black Dorn", "A kept Woman". I want the WIP Dragon fire. This is the BEST way to spend Black Friday. Sitting at home, hopping with old friends and making new ones. I can't handle the crowds anymore so I only do Black Friday shopping online if I do any. I tend to pick up gifts throughout the year so come November I'm finished. That way I can spread out the purchasing and not spend a fortune at the time of the year when my job is at its slowest and my paycheck is at its lowest. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win. <^_^>

    4.) Why would I like to win? Who wouldn't. Authors take great care of their readers. I have been reading, for pleasure, since I was young. I've worked in libraries since elementary school. Reading is my way of relaxing and forgetting about the pressures of the day. Thank you for being so generous.
    Enjoy your weekend!

    4 I would love the chance to sample your books and write reviews on them

  33. I am sure you guys in Canada get a good laugh at the greed and absurdity that happens here in the US for sale items. I for one am not into the whole Black Friday thing and much prefer to spend it at home with my coffee in one hand and either a turkey sandwich or the remote in the other. :)

    Thanks so much for being a part of the hop and for the giveaway!

    Happy Holidays,

  34. I do like to shop on Black Friday, but the last few years I have found better sales, No lines, No rude people, and free shipping on Cyber Monday.

  35. I stayed home this year, thank goodness! Thanks for doing the hop!
