Shot Through the Heart - Cyber Monday Sale!

Big news! The e-book version of my YA romantic comedy Shot Through the Heart is on sale today, Cyber Monday, for only 99 cents. You can find the discounted price (it's regularly $4.99 for e-book, $7.99 in print) at Amazon,, Kobo and Smashwords.  If you've been waiting to get the book, now's a great time.

BTW, you don't need an e-reader to read an e-book. Digital books can be read on nearly any tablet, computer, or smartphone. All you need is the appropriate app for the device you currently own. To read Kindle-formatted books, visit Amazon's Kindle Reading Apps page to get started. To read books formatted for the Nook, visit the site for B&N Reading Apps. Either way you go, you simply choose the app that matches your device, download it, and start reading. It's very quick and easy.  Best of all, the apps are free.

Black Friday Madness

The last few weeks, I've been working hard on the first of what will a new series of romance novels.  However, whenever I reward myself with TV time, I find I'm slammed with ads for Black Friday sales. The evening newscasts are even covering Black Friday, showing the lines outside stores (starting a week in advance in some spots) and the training store employees are getting in advance of the rush.

To me, this all is utter insanity. I avoid malls on regular days, so as you can imagine, I steer well clear on Black Friday.  I abhor chaos and crowds in any setting.  However, my husband loves a good crowd, particularly at concerts or sporting events.  He's a the-more-the-merrier type.

What about you?  Are you a Black Friday fan?  Do you stalk certain stores or items?  Do you feel there are truly deals to be had? 

Me...I plan to do any shopping online.  Easier to avoid the crowds that way.
