In spite of the fact that Black Friday has morphed into a month long event in many cases, it has still become almost its own holiday. Some people love it. I know people who look forward to getting up at the crack of dawn, camping out in front of their favorite store, and shopping with several thousand of their closest friends and neighbors, even more than they look forward to Thanksgiving. They have battle plans, shopping lists, playlists, and regimented time lines to score the largest haul for the smallest price possible.
I guess in an abstract sort of way I can understand the thrill of the hunt for the ultimate discount, but overall I have to say that I fall on the nay side of things when it comes to this particular pastime. Let’s be honest. I live in a small town high upon a mountain way out in the county void of close neighbors because I like the quiet and am not a fan of crowds. Black Friday was most definitely not created for me.
I do however plan to participate in Black Friday this year, in a stay at home kind of way. All of my Currently Published Christmas Books will be on sale for $.99 from Black Friday thru Cyber Monday. Santa Sleuth, which is not as of yet published, will not be part of this sale but you can win a copy below. These books will not be on sale again before Christmas so get ’em while the getting is good.
Win a signed copy of Santa Sleuth when it comes out on December 1 by answering the question yay or nay for Black Friday in the comments below.
