Nothing sends shivers down Sheri Fredrick’s spine faster than the words “Black Friday”.

In the city, where department stores and mega crowds abound, people line up for hours – if not days!- to be the first ones through the door.

Not for this laid-back country girl. First off, we don’t have those kinds of stores in my dinky town on the central coast of California where I live. Oh, the local mom and pop retails try to capitalize on their version of Black Friday, but it isn’t the same.





Take your pick. We’ve got the restaurant on your left…or the feed store on your right. 

No, I don’t think I’ll hit Black Friday this year, or any year. Maybe I’ll take up a good book and read my day away.

What do YOU do on Black Friday?


NOW ON SALE FOR .99 CENTS
TODAY ONLY!

Man by day, Centaur by night, Rhycious is a remedy maker who needs his own healing.

He's the royal physician, famous for his cures. War and posttraumatic stress disorder has broken his spirit, preventing him from finding true happiness. Then a direct order from the queen to investigate an uprising forces him out of his secluded cabin at the edge of the forest.

Patience is an optimistic, good-natured Wood Nymph who works as a mediator to ensure harmony within the Nymph sector.

Environmental pollution in the aquifer stream that feeds the taproot tree of her heart is slowly killing her. Resigned to the fact she will not live long, she sets out to discover the mysterious disappearance of her sister. Experience has taught her to deny herself the love of a male, but the gruff Centaur is different. He doesn't push his expectations on her, only his healing nature.

When Rhycious loses his grip on reality, he believes his inability to control his disorder will drive Patience away. Nevertheless, desire flares, and Patience draws him close. Kidnapping and betrayal turn their mythic joint venture into a deadly bout.

Will their love endure when survival hinges on trusting each other?

  4. Feed store, definitely. They sell cast iron pans, right?

    Hanging out at home today, time to get reading and off the net. Or maybe one more hop. :)

  18. I definitely stay at home on Black Friday. It's a madhouse. We were going to go last year to Wal-Mart at 10 pm. We drove in the lot and then right back out and home we went. The drive was a nice time spent with my sister-in-law but I couldn't believe the crowd that was in the store. Where was the fire marshal? Had to be over crowded.

    I hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

  20. 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.

  30. This year on Black Friday I have purchased lots of sale books on Amazon and have started this hop. It is a lot to do in one day, but I am determined. I am sure in previous Black Fridays I just played online. I have only went shopping ONE time and yes, there is a reason it has only been one time!

    Happy Holidays,

  31. I love getting up early and going to the stores for the Black Friday deals, but this year they started them at 8pm on Thanksgiving and I just didn't feel like fighting the crowds. So I waited until 11:30pm when the stores were almost empty and still got all the specials I wanted.
