Combination Blog Hop

Why have I named this a 'combination blog hop'?  Because a combination of wonderful authors have got together to celebrate through Black friday to Cyber Monday. 

Now being a Brit, I've heard of Black Friday, but Cyber Monday is a new one for me.

 So, anyone who leaves a comment explaining the meaning of Cyber Monday to me will be in for a chance a PDF copy of my Regency Romance, No Job For a Woman, published by Sweet Cravings Publishings.

No Job For a Woman began with a single word - forfiet -  and took several years to write, and then re-write.

I asked myself what would happen to the characters in a story if one of them had their home , in modern terms,'reposessed?'

Then I asked myself what would happen if the owners of that property had something to hide that would effect the outcome of that reposession?

That question was followed by another.  What impact would those events and lies have on my heroine and hero?

Especially if the heroine is fiesty, independent and unwilling to accept help. As for my hero?  Well he's retired, injured, from Wellington's army in the Peninsula and therefore used to being in command of many men, and used to being obeyed.

If you want to find out what happens when these two meet then please either

I love the way you thought the plot through. What a great idea to apply a modern twist to a past event. I'll just bet you've got many more ideas along a similar theme.

:-) Francene, thanks for dropping in and for your kind words. I love these characters even though they kept changing the plot! They sure gave me a run for my money.

People tend to forget that finances were difficult over history... but they survived! Great way to explain how you got your plot!

Cyber Monday is a commercial event encouraging shoppers to "shop 'til your mouse dies" at online stores. I'm going to have such a sale myself, but of ebooks, not lawnmowers, sweaters, or furniture. :-)

I much rather shop Cyber Monday than Black Friday, I can stay at home in my pj's and shop :).

Yes, :-) We hear over here in the UK that what retailers take on BF is enough to help them through the winter, so I do wonder how much is spent on CM?

I hope your credit card is still intact ;-)
Thanks for coming by.
