Black Friday Blog Hop!


 
Hi Everyone!

Welcome to the Black Friday Blog Hop!

This is a ONE DAY hop—Today, November 23, only! With over 200 bloggers on the hop, each with their own contest/prizes, you’ll have to skip the stores, stay home and hop fast! :)

I never go shopping on Black Friday! I don’t like shopping or getting up early and there’s no way I’m doing both, and fighting a crowd, to save a few bucks! Black Friday is always a stay-at-home day for us. Sometimes we set up our Christmas tree, sometimes we just hang out, but I have always felt Black Friday is the “official” beginning to the Christmas season!


 

My new release, CHRISTMAS HOPE, begins on Thanksgiving weekend! CHRISTMAS HOPE is a sweet romance set in the small town of Woodland Springs.

Here’s the blurb:

Karen loves Woodland Springs, the town she grew up in. While her dream of owning a bakery in her hometown came true, the dream of finding love and raising a family seems unattainable until she meets Jason.

Jason Matthews moved to Woodland Springs to fill a veterinarian vacancy. After years of school and interning, he’s ready to start a family. When he meets Karen he knows she’s the one, but Karen is keeping something from her past a secret.

When a misunderstood Christmas present brings out the truth, Jason and Karen learn the true strength of their relationship.

CHRISTMAS HOPE is available on Amazon and Barnes&Noble!

What about you? Is Black Friday a shopping day or a stay-at-home day? Or both?

Leave me a comment below (WITH EMAIL) and let me know how you spend Black Friday! I’m giving away a $5.00 Amazon.com Gift Card to one random commenter! (Winner will be drawn/notified on Saturday, November 24!)

But wait…there’s more!
 
Find all the blogs on the hop here: http://carrieannbloghops.blogspot.com/. The more blogs you visit and comment on (with EMAIL), the more chances you have to win one of the Grand Prizes!

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

 Good luck everyone and Happy Hopping!:)

I'm not a Black Friday shopper. I don't believe that shopping should ever be a full contact sport. I spend the day baking cookies with my kiddos instead.

It was a shopping day for me that started last night. After about 10AM it becomes a sit-around-the-house-and-relax day.

Black Friday is a shopping night and then a get caught up on sleep day (although this year after resting I went out shopping again).

stay at home day, not going near the crowds, thanks for hopping! - regnod(at)yahoo(d0t)com

Nay Nay said...

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. <^_^>

I no longer go Black Friday shopping. Too many crazy people out there. I don't have the patience I had when I was younger, LOL. So today I am staying in and blog hopping, instead of shopping! angadair@nwcable.net Thanks for the hop!

krankimom said...

I stay home and hibernate, trying very hard not to attract any attention from anyone outside of my house. It's the hermit life for me.

I love Black Friday shopping, but this year I waited until the store was almost empty and I still got all the specials on my list. I live in a small town and even though there are a couple hundred people in Wal-Mart, most are friendly and they even say excuse me when they push you to get to what they want. I would never shop in the places they show in the news, way too scary., but in my town, I try to go every year.

Congratulations on your new release. I spend most Black Fridays at home. I did go last year for the first time, and I did not enjoy it at all! This hop was definitely an enjoyable way to spend the day after Thanksgiving!

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

Happy Holidays,
