Thankful Thursday, September 21, 2017

Hello all you happy people! (At least I hope you’re happy. lol)

If you follow me on my Facebook page, you know that I recently returned from a visit to North Carolina. We took my lovely mother-in-law there for a family reunion and during the trip we did a train tour starting in the historic depot in Bryson City and traveling through scenic Western North Carolina. Live musicians played while we ate a delicious hot lunch, then a “Mountain Man” entertained us with stories in between the guide sharing points of interest with fascinating historical facts.
If you’re ever in North Carolina, I highly recommend the train tour!
We also visited Cherokee and Maggie Valley. Both offer some amazing nature sites and quaint local restaurants and shops.

I enjoyed the trip so much that I want to share with you some of the things we collected while there – and I’m adding in the first 3 books in the BodyArmor series. Note that Close Contact won’t actually hit shelves until Nov 28th! This is your chance to get a really early copy.

Now on to #ThankfulThursday! Remember, this week’s prize pack starts with autographed copies of of Under Pressure in hardcover, a paperback Hard Justice, and an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of Close Contact.

description

The goodies I picked up on my weekend trip include a coffee mug/tumbler, a fun country cookbook, hair tie decorated with feathers, all inside a very nice tote bag we received during our train ride.

description

To round it out, I’m adding lots of fun swag, like a Worth the Wait sampler, rack cards, bookmark, magnets and a fan.

Thankful Thursday, September 7, 2017!

Hello all you lovely readers.

To anyone in the path of Hurricane Harvey or the upcoming Irma, you’re in my thoughts and prayers. I can’t begin to imagine what you’re going through, but along with all the devastation and heartache, it’s been heartwarming to see so many pulling together to help each other. To all the heroes out there, to everyone who’s donated time or money, from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU.

We all have a lot on our minds lately, and that’s why it means so much to me to hear from readers who say my books, in any small way, help them through a hardship. If you’re unaware, I often share those letters on my website at Lori’s Corner: http://lorifoster.com/bio/#loriscorner

Now onto #ThankfulThursday!

We start the giveaway this week with an autographed ARC (advance reader copy) of Close Contact, the 3rd book my in my Body Armor Series. The book releases November 28th and you can preorder your copy here: http://lorifoster.com/books/contact.php#order

Thankful Thursday, August 31, 2017!

Hello, happy readers!

description

description

At the top you can see my current book, Worth the Wait, and my upcoming book, Close Contact. If you’ve read the 1st and preordered the 2nd, THANK YOU! Writing wouldn’t be nearly so much fun without all you wonderful readers.

Because my publishers are putting out so many reissues (All the Buckhorn guys are being reissued!) I wanted to remind you that every book is listed on my website and labeled as Reissued Edition or First Time In Print. I hope that helps with distinguishing what you’ve already read.

You can check Upcoming Releases to see what’ll be released and when, New Releases to see what’s already on shelves, Connected Books to see all the various series, or just go to All Books to see everything I know about. (Sometimes a publisher past or present sneaks in a reissue and surprises us both!)

Don’t forget about my new giveaway done on Monday to get your week started with loads of fun. You can check out the last #MysteryMonday to see what I mean, then be sure to visit me next Monday so you, too, can take part!

For now, let’s move on to #ThankfulThursday!

This week’s giveaway includes the reader favorite, Getting Rowdy by me, Lori Foster!

I’m also including books by my author friends:
Sweet Little Lies by Jill Shalvis,
The Billionaire Bachelor by Jessica Lemmon,
Courting the Cowboy Boss by Janice Maynard &
Lost in You by Jules Bennett.
description

Then we have an autographed copy of Prime Obsession, as well as swag & an adult coloring book, all from Monette Michaels.

description

I’m also including a variety of magnets and some fun Labor Day jewelry from Kohls.

Lastly, I have a Lori Foster tote bag and swag.

Thankful Thursday, August 10, 2017!

Hey all you happy people!
What happened to summer? The last few mornings it’s felt more like fall. Brrr… I’m not ready to give up boating season.
How do you like to spend your summers?

Have you read Worth the Wait yet? If so, let me know what you thought. If you’ve already done so, thank you! The feedback has been amazing, and I’m thrilled that (so far) it’s been very well received.

I’ve heard from a lot of readers who want Colt’s story, but he has some growing up to do before he’s old enough to be a hero. 🙂 Maybe someday! In the meantime, the last two books in the BODY ARMOR series are coming up. Close Contact is out November 28th of this year, and Fast Burn is March 20th, 2018.

For now, I’m starting an all new series set in a resort with plenty of Alpha men to go around.

Let’s move on to #ThankfulThursday! This week I especially have reason to thank all you lovely readers after the many wonderful reviews you’ve given Worth the Wait.

Let’s start the giveaway with Murphy’s Law from me.
Then I have copies of
Sweet Little Lies by Jill Shalvis,
Wild Wicked Scot by Julia London &
Caught Up In You by Jules Bennett.

description

Next we have a fun tote bag from me, then throwing in a C.C. Dragon sleep mask & cell phone stand, a Caitlyn O’Leary notebook, a Sam Cheever door hanger, a Jessica Lemmon button and more!

description

Lastly I’m adding some fun swag like magnets, rack cards & bookmarks as well as a Worth the Wait sampler.

Thankful Thursday July 13, 2017!

I’m having a vacation week! 🙂
If you’re following me on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/lorifoster/ you know that I finished (and turned in) FAST BURN. Before I start the next book, my husband and I decided to jump in the RV and head to Tennessee.
We started in Nashville, visiting the original Grand Old Opry, The Ryman Auditorium, and then the Country Music Hall of Fame. So many fun things to see in Nashville – and so much great food!
On Wednesday we headed to Chattanooga, TN to visit Ruby Falls. Loved it!
Now we’re in Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge, TN, which is one of our favorite places to visit. Tennessee as a whole is one of our favorite trips, plus it’s nice to be on vacation for awhile.

As soon as I return home I’ll hunker down in promo mode for the release of Worth the Wait, the 2nd book in The Guthrie Brothers Series on July 25th. This is Hogan & Violet’s story with a secondary story about Sheriff Hawley & Brooklin. If you haven’t preordered your copy yet, you can do that here: http://lorifoster.com/books/worth.php#order

For those who preorder, I’m also doing a fun giveaway that’s so easy to enter. You can win one of 5 giveaway bundles. All the details on how to enter the WORTH THE WAIT Preorder Giveaway are here: https://www.goodreads.com/author_blog_posts/15390772-worth-the-wait-preorder-giveaway
