Black Friday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Black Friday Blog Hop event. This day is about you: the freebies, the swag, the new authors you'll get to discover. And you don't have to get out of your house or brave the long lines and crowds to do it.

I want you to be able to stop by and see all the other authors participating too, so my post will be short (for those that know me, you're gonna say, “wha?”)

Here's to all the men and women who serve our great country. Let's remember to say thanks for all they do, and remember they need our love and support – and a little romance in their day. Can we make this friday a No Dear John Letter Day?
GRAND PRIZE:
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!

In addition, and exclusive to just this blog site, one commenter will be chosen at random on this site to win a free autographed copy of my PRINT BOOK: Accidental SEAL, and a poster, signed by Jimmy Thomas. Remember, to be entered in either the grand prize or my giveaway, YOU MUST LEAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IN YOUR COMMENT.
You have 200 chances to win, plus all the other author freebies. 
Have a great Black Friday Blog Hop. Enjoy!

Carly Carson - November 23, 2012

Oooh. I had to say I love that joke about the Marine. Even though I feel like I shouldn't. I know you write stand-up guys in your wonderful SEAL books, but some of them would appreciate the male-bonding part of this joke, don't you think? Enjoy the day. I don't know if I can sit at home for 2 days in a row but I don't want to face Black Friday either. Hmmmm……

Reply
    Sharon Hamilton - November 23, 2012

    Carly, LOL. Yes, I agree the male bonding thing. I do think even the SEALs get them (as hard as it might imagine), and yeah, they'd totally respond this way. No whining over spilt milk.

    Thanks for showing up today…Insert your email into a reply to be entered in the grand prize. You could win a Kindle Fire!!

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.

Accidental Seal sounds like a fantastic read — and Jimmy Thomas — all I can can say is "*squee*!!"

I'm totally down with the "No Dear John Letter Day"!

I don't do Black Friday — the week before Thanksgiving usually marks the LAST time I deal with retail until after the New Year!

Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

I love Black Friday shopping, 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.
