It's the most wonderful time of the year...shopping!!!!
Did you camp out last night to get a good spot in line? I didn't. I haven't done anything that crazy since my days of sleeping in a tent for weeks on end to watch Duke play Carolina in Cameron Indoor Stadium. (Go Devils!)
The only time I've ever actually ventured out for the Black Friday sales was three years ago. I went to Staples to get a cheap laptop. It wasn't anywhere near as cheap as what they were offering at Walmart and Best Buy for the same model, but I arrived at 5:58 am for the 6 am opening and was just fine. I was more than happy to pay a little more for the extra sleep. Particularly since I was almost 8 months pregnant at the time.
I'll probably do some online shopping this weekend. My best ever Cyber Monday "purchase" was last year, though. My baby boy Alex. :) He arrived at 7:11 pm, almost 2 weeks early (which was practically overdue, compared to my daughter, who was 6 weeks early, but I digress.)
Anyway, if you're battling the crowds this weekend, don't forget to get a little something for yourself. You can even download it right there in line, while you're waiting to check out. Treat yourself with one of the great reads that I've compiled for a Killer Black Friday Sale!
First up...some reads by the Killers, themselves.
Jana DeLeon is offering her entire 3-book Ghost-in-Law box set for just $1.99! It normally retails for $7.99, so this is a great deal! These books are hilarious, so try 'em out. You won't regret it.
Gemma Halliday's Spying in High Heels is just $.99 now through Cyber Monday, and her holiday short, Christmas in High Heels is free.
And I've reduced the price of the first in my YA dancer series, Codename: Dancer, to just 99 cents at Amazon, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble.
Then on Cyber Monday, I'll be releasing my new short story collection, Short & Sweet: Four Fun & Flirty Tales. All proceeds -- that's 100% of the royalties -- from now until Christmas will be donated to relief efforts for the Hurricane Sandy survivors.
But that's not it. I put a call out on some of my writers' loops, and found some awesome discounts for your reading pleasure. So fill up those e-readers and enjoy!!!
