It's Black Friday, Again!

By Nancy Jill Thames

Every year my stalwart sister-in-law in California gathers her three daughters on Black Friday at 4 a.m. and they head out to shop. 

These  women are on a mission, determined to take advantage of the best deals of the year.

I admire them. But fighting crowds at such an hour is not my cup of tea. 

Still, I suppose if one could lasso a 40" LED flat screen TV for $99 it might be worth it. 


I'm still not convinced. It is my humble opinion that the day after Thanksgiving would be better spent resting from entertaining the day before, punctuated with meals of delicious leftovers. 

I'm writing this post on the Tuesday before in order to do just, relax, and eat leftovers. 

Sounds good to me.

What are your plans for Black Friday? Whatever they are,  I wish you great success. 

Have a great weekend and please let us know if you got any great deals!

Speaking of great deals...Book 1 in the Jillian Bradley mystery series for your e-readers is FREE on
Kindle  Nook  Smashwords  Kobo.
 This is a $2.99 value to introduce the other books in the series. 

And don't forget to download your free copy of our holiday anthology from our Cozy Mystery Magazine Authors,

     See you in my books!

    Well the Black Friday plans I had didn't happen (it did not include Black Friday shopping). So this is what I actually did.
    Stayed in bed until 9:00 am (had to sleep off the Thanksgiving meal of which I overindulged)
    Got up, took a shower, had lunch (it all got done at slow speed, but it got done)
    Finished editing and posting Chasing Lady Midnight at various sites (subliminal hint that it is now for sale. Go Buy It NOW! It is Black Friday, you are in the mood to shop!)
    Then I went to to the craft store to which I have major coupons. Yes, I am a knitting nerd between writing books.
    The rest of the day has I have no plans whatsoever.
    Well I do have to work Saturday, but I get Sunday and Monday off.
    Hope yours was as fun as mine was.

    1. Dragged out all the Christmas paraphernalia (after a hearty slice of pecan pie and whipped cream) and after my husband made three trips to Lowes for lights and extension cords, we got the tree up and lit. Then we crashed. Thank Heaven for leftovers!

      Have a nice evening, my friend.
