Black Friday Blog Hop: KINDLE FIRE and 23 Books!

The Black Friday Blog Hop is all about shopping tips. Uh, but...

I don't shop!

Not even for groceries. Not if I can help it. Online shopping is my friend—parking is always great, comparison shopping takes minutes instead of hours, there are no long lines, and best of all, I can...

shop in my jammies.

So this blog is for all you who would rather sleep in your nice comfy bed while everyone else is braving the elements and hostile forces (other shoppers) for those nifty Black Friday specials—the newspaper advertisements nearly filling my recycle bin.

My family members know if they don’t have an Amazon Wish List, they might get a polka-dotted zebra table cloth or some such a thing. Whatever I see that’s fast and cheap, I buy for them. Wish lists are great—pick something and send it to them. You know it’s something they want or can use, and won’t hide it in the attic except for when you come over. My relatives know they’d better pick something that’s eligible for Amazon Prime, too.

But mostly I buy books. Here’s a great deal for you: the print version of Faery Special Romances (a great Christmas gift for romance lovers from age 14 to 114) is now on sale at Amazon! Regularly priced at $13.45, it’s now on sale for only $2.38!!! That’s for a print book. And you can buy the Kindle version for just $1.99. Can’t go wrong there.

If you love Christmas stories, try Faery Merry Christmas—only 99¢ for the Kindle version. It’s a fun, feel-good story. The print version is available for $8.95.

Since Mr R gave me a Kindle last summer, I buy ebooks. Funny thing about ebooks and pricing—they can be really expensive and it’s a mystery why some publishers charge so much. Because I’m a readaholic, I love to find a great book at a bargain price.

That’s why my first western historical romance, Much Ado About Marshals, is only 99¢ on Kindle. If you want to buy it at Smashwords for 99¢, send a message to jacquierogers @ (no spaces) and I’ll send you a coupon. The trade paperback version is absolutely gorgeous thanks to cover designer Deborah MacGillivray and cover model Kyle Walker. It’s also a great gift for romance or western readers. The price is $13.99, but for this blog hop, I’m offering a signed copy, personalized to the person you’re gifting, for the same price, $13.99, postage included.

Now, wouldn’t you like to win the
Kindle Fire?

Just comment and you’re entered, plus you could win an autographed copy of Much Ado About Marshals (or a Smashwords coupon for a free copy, if you prefer). Be sure to include your email address or you won't be entered into the drawings.

Cover model: Kyle Walker

All of you who have been waiting for the print version of Much Ado About Marshals are in luck!  Special thanks to artists David Angell and Peter Baker for their really cool illustrations. So fun! Especially the drawing of the two widows...well, you'd have to see it to know what I mean. Take a look at the Amazon book page and let me know what you think.

About Much Ado About Marshals:

FIVE STARS from Detra Fitch, owner of Huntress Reviews!
"A hilarious, yet romantic, comedy of errors... I grinned. I frowned. I worried. I sighed ... this story grabbed me by the throat, kept me reading long past my bed time, and earned a place of honor upon my Keeper Shelf. Unforgettable! I cannot recommend this title highly enough."

Like romance? Love stories about the old west? Want a dreamy cowboy to cuddle up and read about? Then this is the book for you.
~~My Eclectic Bookshelf, 5 dragonflies

Back cover copy:

Daisy Gardner wants to be a detective just like dime novel heroine Honey Beaulieu. To her delight, her sister shot a bank robber and he got away, so now she even has a crime to solve. But her parents insist she marry a man whose farm is miles from town. She can't solve crimes stuck out there. What better solution than to marry the new marshal!

Rancher Cole Richards saves his friend from robbing a bank, but is shot for his efforts, and now is a wanted man. His friend takes him to Oreana to see the doc, where Cole's mistaken for the new marshal. Now he faces a dilemma few men have to face--tell the truth and hang, or live a lie and end up married. Either way could cost him his freedom.

Sometimes a book practically makes itself and sometimes life gets in the way. I've had a busy, busy year with family and that's why the print book took a couple months longer than we'd all hoped. The cover designer (Deborah Macgillivry) and Melange Publishing were both johnny-on-the-spot. I'm thankful to work with such wonderful people.
