The market seems to be settling down in preparation for holiday shopping. On-line purchases the past few days show Cyber Monday topped $9.48 billion dollars. Smartphones accounted for at record $3 billion dollars.

I was shopping in Roseville and it was a literal Zoo of people. Hard to find a parking spot as people are on the hunt at Costco, Home Depot and of all places The Pottery Barn.

Starting to looks a-lot like Christmas!

The best news is my latest novel: Never Judge a Book… is available on Amazon in both print and e-book. You can also order books through me. I am ordering a bunch as Christmas presents. You can get in on my purchases by sending me and e-mail or a text.

Talk to you tomorrow,
