Working on Thanksgiving - do or don't?

The question many of you may be contemplating tomorrow - to shop or not to shop? - now that more stores than ever are opening their doors on Thanksgiving.

But as you can imagine, not everyone is happy about having to work the pre-Black Friday Holiday blitz.

Many folks who are being called in maintain Thanksgiving should be a day for family and friends, not work.

Romance writer Megan Mulry takes a risk on self-publishing

This Friday when romance writer Megan Mulry officially releases her latest book entitled "In Love Again," she will be taking a risk. Mulry’s previous two books in her fictional “Unruly Royals” series were published by Sourcebooks , and landed her on the USA TODAY Bestseller list. But for book number three, Mulry decided to self-publish.

“I had a wonderful three-book deal with Sourcebooks, with a one-book option clause," Mulry tells OutFront. But Mulry says her new protagonist didn't fit into the Sourcebooks vision for the series of high-flying British royals and the Americans who love them. The star of her new novel is pushing forty, a departure from her traditionally twenty-something characters that catered to a younger audience. “After my editor, Deb Werksman, and I talked about the option clause," she says, "we both agreed it might be an opportunity for me to self-publish.”
