Black Friday Blog Hop - One Day Only!

Hello world!

It's that time again - the time for an amazing blog hop with amazing authors giving away amazing prizes! The Black Friday Blog Hop

While the rest of the US is out handling the crowds, fighting for their holiday gifts, some of us like to stay in, shop online, or just ignore Black Friday all to together. This year, join us in our second annual Black Friday Blog Hop! It's a ONE DAY hop where we're giving away prizes, talking about books we love, and most likely  eating left over turkey. :-)

The hop is November 23rd and is ONE DAY only.

And while we do that, we are EACH doing a giveaway. Yep. There will be over 200 giveaways on each blog hosted by that Author or Blogger.

My giveaway? 
A free download of Something to Live For or Everything to Lose, Books 1 and 2 in the Moonlight Dating Series to at least TWO winners - the book of your choice in the format of your choice.
How do you enter the drawing to win these prizes?
By following the simple instructions in the Rafflecopter below... (NOTE: I don't send e-mail often to readers - not more than once a month. I message readers ONLY when I have a new release or for important announcements.)

After the above, please also comment below with your e-mail address to be entered into the main drawing for the three MEGA prizes.

But that's not all....

We have THREE grand prizes. You as a reader can go to EACH blog and comment with your email address and be entered to win. All your comments for my giveaway will count for the grand prize as well. [Please note: Entries without an email address will not be considered valid. All comments must be posted by November 23rd] 

Anyway, what this means is that you can enter over 200 times for the grand prize drawings!

Now what are those prizes?

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!

Yep. ALL of that! Whoot! (NOTE: The first two prizes are international; the swag pack is not and can only be mailed to US winners)

Be sure to visit here on November 23rd to let me know how you like to shop! Me? I'm a web gal all the way. Give me eBay, Amazon, and let me avoid the mad crowds! What about you?

And after you comment, please check out the other participating authors' sites (follow the handy linky list below) to see what they have on offer during this Blog Hop. You can't go wrong with this fantastic selection... you'll be spoilt for choice! 

Hope you enjoyed your stay here. Thanks for stopping by and best of luck to ya!!

About the Moonlight Dating Series:

Something to Live for
Available from: 


"This book does not fade to black!" 
--- Wren Deloro 

"Delicately cast into a frame with frissons of the supernatural, this short story will have appeal to many types of readers, as it did to me. Ms. Owens has an intriguing touch with the aspects of characterization, plotting, and setting imagery; I'm quite eager to read more from her." 

Fifteen years ago, one fateful day bound the lives of two perfect strangers…

Melita Saari-Quinn is living the consequences of a traumatizing psychic event that turned her adolescence upside down. Now, disillusioned with her job as a psychotherapist and desiring a change from her lackluster existence, she hopes that something out of her  ordinary sphere of existence - something totally uninhibited and spontaneous - will renew her zest for life.

Alex Moncado seems to have it all – good looks, a successful business, and a fun life in “party central” of the Mediterranean: the island of Malta. Except for one day in the year when he can’t help but remember a tragedy that never should have been. One day he’d rather forget, because if he doesn’t, the guilt will consume him.

Can one passionate night together banish the ghosts of the past and give two lost souls a second chance? 

Only Fate can tell…


Everything to Lose
(On Sale during the blog hop @ 99c!)
Available from:

From the suburbs of London to the old charm of Ascoli Piceno, Italy, follow the journey a broken couple must take to discover the long-buried secrets that shattered their marriage. 

Lisbeth Marsh put everything on hold to be with her ideal man, even the wish to have a family. But when the dream of everlasting love vanished into thin air, she was faced with the mistakes and prejudices of her choices. 

Dane Marsh is a proud man who spent years worshiping the gods of ambition. Toward this single-minded purpose, he sacrificed his happiness and peace of mind. Now that he knows what he's lost, will he have the courage to turn his life around? 

With a little meddling from Moonlight Dating's Jeanette Lagrange and a dash of magic, the two embark on the trip of a lifetime to bury the ghosts of the past. 

"Sensual, Emotionally Impacting, Deep-a Winner!"
"Natalie G. Owens always writes in awesome locations."

***In part previously published as "Mr. & Mrs. Foster". Extensively revised, lengthened and edited***

No Rules. No Formulas. Just a world of love, mystery and fantasy!

I'm not the online shopper, prefer to actually see the item in reality...but I hate to shop when there are big sales and big crowds :D

K. April Holgate said...

I do not like crowds so BF shopping is not for me! I will be spending my day hopping and then snuggled up reading! Well that is after I decide on what new book I have just added to my to be read list! It gets longer every hop! Thanks!


Lily Silver said...

I'm not into the crowds at BF. I'm with you, a web girl all the way. It's wonderful to shop from your home and get good deals delivered to your door.
I'm curled up with a good book today, a rare day off from the daily grind. Why would I want to spend it in a store with wild eyed shoppers ready to mow me down with their carts? This is so much more relaxing, and the hop is fun!

Online shopper here. Couldn't pay me to go brave those crowds!

Great stop! Thanks!

Carla said...

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.

I can't do Black Friday shopping (unless it's online) - I don't have the patience or the stamina for the lines and the crowds. Happy Holidays and thank you for the opportunity to win some great prizes.

I love Black Friday shopping, (I live in a small town and people are pretty friendly, no blood or bruising) but this year they started at 8pm on thursday so I decided to stay at home and read. I went out about 11:30, when the stores were almost empty and still got all the specials that I wanted.


Lona said...

I shop from home, its better for everyone. I just dont have it in me to put up with the rude people, lines and the weather. Thx for the hop stop.

Belinda G said...

I hate large shopping crowds so I don't do it during the holidays. People seem to go insane when it should be a joyous time. I stay home and order online, No muss no fuss. My sanity is worth the shipping fees. LOL

Thanks for the opportunity to share.

Thanks for the blog giveaway :)

Love shopping BF with friends.

Ipro55 said...

I don't do Black Friday sales. The deals are usually not worth all the hassle, especially since I'm not the type to stand out in the cold for hours waiting for the store to open.

Sarah Kalaitzidis said...

Thanks for the great giveaway!

Suzie said...

No Black Friday for me. I will shop in the stores when it's less crowded. I do shop cyber Monday and find great deals online.
