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.

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. Yep, you can enter over 200 times!

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! (Sorry guys, no International Shipping on this one)
 
 

I love Black Friday, love the deals, love the savings. Hate the crowds, which is why I've only braved it three times in my life! LOL... but since you all are joining me here today, I'll give you one extra deal, sign up for my  newsletter, or if you have already let me know that, and comment with what your best score was on Black Friday. Mine was an HD flat screen TV at best buy four years ago. Completely obsolete now, but back then... oh yeah, I was the envy of my block! *grin*

So my prize is simple, whichever one of my books you'd like for free. Since Hatter is currently free everywhere, you'll actually be getting two books. Below are the blurbs for each:

Her Mad Hatter: (Alice in Wonderland)

Alice is all grown up. Running the Mad Hatter's Cupcakery and Tea Shoppe is a delicious job, until fate--and a fairy godmother with a weakness for bad boys--throws her a curveball. Now, Alice is the newest resident of Wonderland, where the Mad Hatter fuels her fantasies and thrills her body with his dark touch.

The Mad Hatter may have a voice and a body made for sex, but he takes no lovers. Ever. But a determined fairy godmother has forced Alice into Wonderland--and his arms. Now, as desire and madness converge, the Hatter must decide if he will fight the fairy godmother's mating--or fight for Alice.

Gerard's Beauty: (Beauty and the Beast)

A not so classic retelling of Beauty and the Beast, as seen through the eyes of the villain...

Betty Hart has had it with men. Jilted in love, her life now consists of shelving books by day, watching too much Anime by night, and occasionally dressing up like a superhero on the weekends with her fellow ‘Bleeding Heart’ nerds. Men are not welcome and very much unwanted. Especially the sexy Frenchman who saunters into her library reeking of alcohol and looking like he went one too many rounds in the ring.

Gerard Caron is in trouble. Again. Caught with his pants down (literally) he’s forced to seek asylum on Earth while his fairy godmother tries to keep Prince Charming from going all ‘Off with his head’. Maybe, messing around with the King’s daughter hadn’t been such a great idea after all, not that Gerard knew the silly redhead was a princess. But his fairy godmother knows the only way to save his life is to finally pair Gerard with his perfect mate, whether he’s willing or not.

From the moment Gerard lays eyes on the nerdy librarian he knows he must have her, but Betty is unlike any woman he’s ever known. He thought Betty would come as willingly to his bed as every other woman before her, but she is a woman who demands respect and even… horror of all horrors… love. Is it possible for a self-proclaimed Casanova to change his ways?
Red and Her Wolf: (Little Red Riding Hood)

Long ago there lived a beautiful child. Her name was Violet. Fair of skin, with blonde hair and large blue eyes. Born of wild magic, she was a woman with a child’s heart. Innocent and lovely, but not at all what she seemed--you see Violet went by another name: The Heartsong.

She was the child of fairy magic, the physical manifestation of all fae kinds unbridled power. Cosseted and pampered, she grew up in isolation, never knowing who she really was, or why there were those who’d seek to harm her.

Ewan of the Blackfoot Clan is a wolf with a problem. He’s been sent to kill the Heartsong, but the moment he lays eyes on the blonde beauty he knows he’ll defy the evil fae he works for to claim Violet as his own.

This is the tale of Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, as it really happened...

The Witching Hour: Grim Reaper Saga (Urban Fantasy Romance)

Because sometimes death isn't the end...

After not only being run over, but watching her husband die in the same hit and run, Eve Philips thought she would never love again. Years pass and her sisters worry that she'll become an old crone like so many other witches. They've made it their personal mission to help her find her next true love. But Eve wants none of that, she throws herself into her potions shop--Witches Brew--determined work, and not a lover, will fix the void in her heart.

Until the day she sees him. Cian, gorgeous and mysterious, she's frightened by the desires he brings out in her. A passion that rivals even the love she'd felt for her husband.

But Cian is not what he seems. He's fae. More than that, he's the grim reaper of legend and his mission means her death. She shouldn't have seen him. His kind moves in stealth, but the moment her golden eyes meets his he knows his world will never be the same. He'll defy his orders and his Queen to keep her. But will Eve want what he offers when she discovers the truth? That he was the one who harvested her husband's soul...
Or if none of those float your boat, how about an advanced copy of Jinni's Wish!! (Arabian Nights)

A long, long time ago there lived a man. A Jinni, who had one wish. To know love. But the woman he thought he knew betrayed him and the love he thought they shared. Tortured for his crimes, he was cast out of Kingdom, stripped of all his powers, left to langour in pain and solitude, until eventually he becomes nothing but a ghost...

Paz Lopez is an artist with a dream. To buy a ridiculously large penthouse in the swankiest section of Chicago. But there's just one hitch, she has no man to share her dream with. A fateful visit to a carnival and Madam Pandora's tent sends Paz on a mission to find the love of her life before it's too late.

But the Madam forgot to tell Paz one very important detail... to meet him, Paz will have to die first.

Happy reading,
~Marie

No shoppers, huh? Wow, and here I thought I was in the minority. I'd love to snag deals but just can fathom getting up at 4 in the morning and battling little old ladies for the last vcr/dvd combo. *shudder*

Well, since I couldn't go out shopping this year, I stayed in & did a little shopping online. It was a nice change, especially since I got to shop in my jammies ;) I gotta say, I love Blog Hops!!! I find so many great authors doing this. I am very interested in Fairy Tale spin-offs. So glad I found you!!!

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.

My best deal were the pillows I purchased yesterday. Not even sure of what I saved money wise but I desperately needed new pillows and now I have them. I went last year for the first time but only purchased a few things for myself and none that were advertised savings. This day is just not for me. I cannot handle the crowds.

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

Happy Holidays,

Hi Marie,
You have a way of taking fairytales into another dimension. In the Witching Hour, you took a scary idea (death) and made it into a destiny where living does not end. You are a writer ahead of your time. susan_francesny[at]hotmail[dot]com

I do like to shop on Black Friday, but the last few years I have found better sales, No lines, No rude people, and free shipping on Cyber Monday.

angelheart618@gmail.com

Beckey said...

I wait until Cyber Monday and then start some online shopping...
The only shopping adventure I did today was weekly grocery shopping (took the bill from $279 down to $151)

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving
