Tabitha here,

It's shaping up to be a short week with plenty of time for reading (or sleeping after turkey) unless you have to work retail – then you might be stuck working on Black Friday and the weekend. If you aren't stuck working, we hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and fun doing any shopping you decide to get done early. If you are working, we hope you find some time soon to spend with family and friends and to get your reading and shopping done before too late.

If you celebrate Thanksgiving, I have a question for you, besides pie, what is your favorite Thanksgiving dish?​​​

I have 7 fantastic books launching this week and one of them released this morning! That's pretty sweet for a Monday!

Not only do we have the 7 new releases for you this week, but we also have Six Days of Thanksgiving with free books for everyone. More on that tomorrow, but check out today's free book, Wake Him Up!
