Seemed to me from what I saw that Friday was the expected, profitable Black Friday for most stores. I spent the day on the road, not shopping, but on my way to visit friends in Utah. But whenever we pulled off the freeways for gas or food or bathroom breaks, people mobbed the shopping centers and it was difficult to find parking.
Are deals really better, the day after Thanksgiving? I don't know - I'm not sure it's worth going out in all the craziness. But hopefully people got great deals and stores made lots of money.
As for me, I had a great time driving through the desert, passing through busy Las Vegas and the gorgeous landscape of Arizona. I visited the Barnes & Noble in St. George, Utah, leaving autographed copies of EVENINGS, then spent a great night with friends.
Today, I'd like to announce that I'll have a guest author, Lucha Corpi visiting on December 3th, so be sure to stop by. She will be on a blog tour and will be giving away copies of her book, DEATH AT SOLTICE to readers who comment. In fact, a grand prize of the collection of all her books will be given to the person who leaves the most comments. Below is her tour schedule and what she'll be discussing.
Death at Solstice Book Tour
Have fun following Lucha and don't forget to stop back on December 3rd.
