Thankful Thursday, May 25, 2017!

We’re coming up on Memorial Day Weekend here in the U.S. As you celebrate the time off, please remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. I have extreme respect and gratitude for our military, and I hope you do as well.

We’re only 2 week’s from the start of #RAGT17! Even though full attendance for the event is sold out, the 2 big booksignings are FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC! Friday, June 9th & Saturday, June 10th from 3:00 to 5:00 PM. You can see the full signing list here: http://readerauthorgettogether.com/about/#bookfairs (Subject to change, so be sure to check it right before the signing dates!)

I’m desperately hoping to finish writing Fast Burn before we get to #RAGT17. Sahara and Brand have cooperated, practically writing the book for me. It’s the last story in the Body Armor series and I’m anxious to wrap it up, but between house decisions and last minute #RAGT17 decisions, we’ll see if it gets finished before or after. 🙂

No matter what I have going on, I always make time to say Thank You to all of the amazing readers with my weekly #ThankfulThursday! This week is special because I’m including fun stuff from my visit to the Natural Bridge in Kentucky!

Let’s start with #autographed copies of Jude’s Law & Murphy’s Law.

description

We’ll add copies of
Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning,
All I Want Is You by Toni Blake &
Hot SEAL by Lynn Raye Harris.

description

I’ll include a bundle of fun swag + an #RAGT15 tote bag!

description

description

And then from the Natural Bridge, I’m including:
An XL T-shirt, pen, magnet, braided bracelet, a tin of mints, all in a nifty old-timers paper bag. (I love creative packaging!)

Thankful Thursday, May 18, 2017!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend. I got flowers from my boys and my hubby, took in a movie, and even got out on the lake for a boat ride. I wrote up a storm on Mon & Tues (working on Fast Burn – Brand’s story in the Body Armor series) then on Wed, Allen and I took a trip down to the Natural Bridge. I love getting outside on beautiful days.
Now I’m ready to write again.

It’s nice to steal some downtime, especially when we’re so busy making final preparations for #RAGT17! Don’t forget that even though the event is sold out, the 72 author booksignings on Friday June 9th & Saturday June 10th from 3-5 are FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC! I’ll be signing, along with Karen Marie Moning, J.R.Ward, Lora Leigh, Jill Shalvis, Darynda Jones and many others.
Check out the full signing schedule here:
http://readerauthorgettogether.com/bookfairs/

At those signings, I’ll have very limited PRINT copies of A Buckhorn Baby that you can purchase and have autographed. It will be released digitally everywhere else on June 1st. This is the benefit book I write each year where all advance and royalties go to the Animal Adoption Foundation – a local no-kill animal shelter in Ohio that is very close to my heart for all of the amazing work they do.

As usual though we are still having #ThankfulThursday!
This week’s prize pack starts with #autographed copies of
Jude’s Law and Murphy’s Law

Then we have:
Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning
All I Want Is You by Toni Blake

Thankful Thursday, May 11, 2017!

Busy, Busy Week! We’re finalizing many of the decisions on the house we’re having built. If you’ve never built one, let me tell you, it seems there are a hundred things to decide for each room! Fun, but it almost requires more time than I have free.

PERSONAL STUFF
I also had my 3 month check up with my pulmonary doctor. Somehow I got this rare infection (probably while in the hospital with my husband during his knee replacement) and it’s tough to get rid of. I take a cocktail of 7 pills for a YEAR (yes, a year) with bloodwork and a dr appt every 3 months. This was my 6 month visit and I was hoping for good news, but unfortunately, I’ve gotten a secondary lung infection that can’t be cured. So now on top of the meds I have an inhaler and this breathing device “thingy” I have to use twice daily.
Who has time for this!? Bleh. I know many of my readers are dealing with very serious issues, so I promise not to complain too often about something that, hopefully, will be manageable.

READER & AUTHOR GET TOGETHER
I’m in the final stretch for plans with this year’s #RAGT17! It’s an amazing event where readers & authors get to spend time together in a leisurely and laid back environment. This year’s event is booked solid but the 2 MAJOR booksignings are open to the public and are FREE to attend! You can see the full signing schedule for June 9th & 10th here: http://readerauthorgettogether.com/bookfairs/

MOTHER’S DAY GIVEAWAY
Before we get into this week’s #ThankfulThursday giveaway, I want to tell you about a HUGE Mother’s Day Giveaway that started on Wednesday! Yes, we’ll have some giveaways overlapping. How fun is that!?
The winner will get a total of 15 books from amazing authors such as Susan Mallery, Jill Shalvis,
Marie Force

description

To enter the Mother’s Day Giveaway, just LIKE my Facebook page and comment on one of the many Mother’s Day giveaway posts that we’ll have on the Facebook wall. Winner will be announced at 8am ET Monday morning, 5-15!

THANKFUL THURSDAY
Now it’s time for #ThankfulThursday, which will include #autographed Under Pressure & Hard Justice from me.

description

Also the following books:
Heat Seeker from Lora Leigh,
Underworld Queen from Sharon Hamilton
All I Want Is You from Toni Blake

And we’ll include a Karen Rose tote bag.

description

Plus a booklover’s T-shirt!

Thankful Thursday, May 4th, 2017!

Hello May!! 🙂 Are you loving the warmer temps as much as I am? We actually got our first boat ride of the season this past Sunday. I’m always happiest when I’m out on the water – but I’m looking forward to a few mountain visits and perhaps a trip to Hocking Hills, Cumberland Falls and the Natural Bridge, too.

The construction on our new house is coming right along. If you’re interested, I post pictures or videos on my Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/lorifoster/ So many decisions to make, but so far it’s been fun.

We’re now about a month from this year’s#RAGT17!This is the event I host each year in Cincinnati, Ohio for readers & authors to hang out in a very casual social setting. The event is sold out for this year but the major BOOKSIGNINGS are FREE to attend and Open to the Public! If you’re in the area I would love to see you there.

Psst: I’ll have a limited supply of A Buckhorn Baby in print! It’ll be available digitally everywhere else. Remember, all advance and royalties from the sale of the book go to the Animal Adoption Foundation, a no-kill animal shelter. http://www.AAFPets.org

Now on to this week’s #ThankfulThursday where I’m giving autographed copies of Jude’s Law & Murphy’s Law from me.

Thankful Thursday, April 20, 2017!

This has been such a fun and busy week. We hosted our Easter Party on Saturday for our large family. Hid a lot of eggs (over 250 of them!) for the 20+ kids, ate a lot of good food, talked a lot and overall had a great time.

I’ve also been finalizing things for #RAGT17. This is the reader & author event I host each year near Cincinnati, OH. All the money raised goes to various local charities that are important to me, benefiting kids and animals.

Registration for this year’s event is full, but remember that the BOOKSIGNINGS on Friday & Saturday are open to the public. If you’re in the area I would love to see you there!

Now let’s get to my weekly #ThankfulThursday, a fun giveaway that requires no entry. LIKE my Facebook page and you’re already entered!

Thankful Thursday, April 13, 2017!

Hello happy readers! I’m loving this spring weather we’re having. I’m so ready to get the boat in at the lake but we’ve just been too busy. Between writing, work on the RAGT17 (www.readerauthorgettogether.com) and choosing things for the new house, I’m going a little nuts. 😀

I’m currently working on Fast Burn, the 4th book in the Body Armor Series. This will be Brand’s story, set for release in April 2018. I finished Close Contact before our TN trip and that will be Miles’ story released in November 2017.

Before that is A Buckhorn Baby on June 1st and Worth the Wait on July 25th.

So many book releases to keep up with, I know! It’s crazy.
(See how busy I’ve been!?)

I also have a reissue this week with Annie Get Your Guy. This is a digital re-release with a really nice new cover. There are a lot of reissues this year. You can see my full release schedule here: http://lorifoster.com/new-releases/

Now let’s tackle this week’s #ThankfulThursday. My chance to slow down a little and say Thank You to all of the amazing readers that read my books and spend time on Facebook with me.

For #ThankfulThursday I’m starting with an autographed hardcover of
Fighting Dirty from me.
Tasty Cravings by Erika Reed
Kiss Me Deadly by Shauna Pendleton
Bad Girl by Night by Lacey Alexander

description

Next I’m throwing in one of the new Worth the Wait fans.

Lastly, I have an #RAGT16 tote bag full of fun goodies.

Thankful Thursday, April 6, 2017!

This has been a week to remember! Those who follow me on Facebook already know that my middle son & daughter-in-law (living South Korea) gave me a beautiful little granddaughter a few days ago. She’s absolutely adorable and has already stolen my heart. I can’t wait for her to meet her 3 boy cousins. 🙂

We were in the Smoky Mountains when we got the news. I needed a few days away to decompress after I finished Close Contact, the 3rd book in the Body Armor Series. My husband and I love Gatlingburg, Pigeon Forge and that whole TN area. The patriotism and friendliness, mixed with the beauty of nature, is always so wonderful to experience.

Now I’m back at my desk and ready to start on FAST BURN, Brand Berry’s story, the 4th book in the Body Armor Series.

Even better, it’s time for #ThankfulThursday!

This week will include autographed copies of
Under Pressure & Hard Justice from me!

description

I also have copies of
Ultimate Sins & Heat Seeker by Lora Leigh
Accidental SEAL by Sharon Hamilton
Romantic Times: Vegas: Book 2 anthology by various authors.

description

Plus I’m including a book lover’s T-shirt & a #RAGT16 tote bag full of cool swag.
If your name is posted as the winner, be sure to send your T-shirt size with your information.

Thankful Thursday, March 30, 2017!

How is it already the end of March?? I feel like Christmas was 5 minutes ago – but I won’t complain about spring in the air! I love the milder weather. Even with the ups & downs so far this year, we’re off to a pretty good start.

To everyone who’s written a nice review for Hard Justice, the 2nd book in the Body Armor Series, I can’t say Thank You enough. If you ever wonder what gift to get an author, a review is always great. 🙂

Fun news – on Tuesday I finished Close Contact, book 3 in the Body Armor Series. That’s Miles’s story, hitting shelves on November 28th. I’ll be starting Brand’s book next week…after I take off a few days to get some choices made for the new house we’re having built.

Now, on to this week’s #ThankfulThursday! I’m doing a “Two-Fer” edition this week. The winning reader will get:
2 books from Lori Foster
2 from Jill Shalvis
2 from Jules Bennett!

That means autographed copies of
Under Pressure & Hard Justice!

description

This week’s reader also gets copies of Sweet Little Lies & The Trouble with Mistletoe from Jill Shalvis. These will be “reader’s choice” of print or digital. Just specify your preference when claiming your prize.

description

Next I have autographed copies of Lost in You & Twin Secrets from Jules Bennett.

description

I’m also including a book lover’s T-shirt & tote bag, plus plenty of swag like bookmarks, magnets, etc…

I’m so excited that Hard Justice has finally hit the shelves. Justice & Fallon were such a fun couple to write. To everyone who’s already read it, and especially to those who wrote a quickie review on Amazon, THANK YOU. You totally rock!

In the middle of writing & doing promo, I’m taking today for to say Thank You to all of the amazing readers who hang-out with me on my Facebook page. I did a live Facebook video yesterday that details everything up for grabs in this week’s #ThankfulThursday. You can see it here: https://www.facebook.com/lorifoster/videos/10154412232677966/

First I have autographed copies of

Thankful Thursday, March 16, 2017!

Hello all you happy people!
Ready for another Thankful Thursday? After a crazy week, I sure am. You know, no matter how tumultuous a week might be, I’m always so happy to visit with readers. You really brighten my days.

CRAZINESS
If you’re wondering why my week was so crazy, check out a Live Facebook video that I did yesterday. I was a hot mess (trust me, you’ll see) plus distracted and forgetful. (Sorry about that!) But hopefully, I explained everything.

(BTW, thank you to everyone who wrote to me about my pets, health and especially my nephew. Please understand that I’m just too swamped to reply to everyone right now, but I really do appreciate it!)

I’m always thankful for the wonderful things in my life, including my big, loving family and the pets I adore. When unsettling things happen – and of course that’s a part of life – it reaffirms for me that we should never take anything for granted, and that we all need to be grateful for even the simplest things.

READER & AUTHOR GET TOGETHER
Registration for the Reader and Author Get Together was pretty smooth this year. We have around 70 authors attending, including [author:Karen Marie Moning|48206] and [author:Lora Leigh|2614]. Remember if you didn’t make it past registration (we maxed out in just a few hours) the two massive booksignings are *OPEN TO THE PUBLIC on both Friday & Saturday! Check out the full author list!

HARD JUSTICE
The 2nd book in the Body Armor series releases in only 5 days, on March 21st. Justice & Fallon were a fun couple to write and I hope everyone enjoys them as much as I did. If you haven’t yet, you can preorder your copy now! Available in mass market print, hardcover, digital and audio.

UPCOMING BOOKS
I have five new books this year plus my publisher is reissuing more than a dozen older stories. FYI, you can always check my Upcoming Book List, where books are marked “first time in print” or “reissued edition.”

THANKFUL THURSDAY
In honor of the upcoming release week, I’m doing a special prize pack this week for ThankfulThursday starting with autographed copies of the first two Body Armor Series books:

Under Pressure & Hard Justice

description

And because the Body Armor characters originated in the
Ultimate Series I’m including all 4 of those books:

No Limits – Holding Strong – Tough Love – Fighting Dirty

description

Plus fun book swag + a $10 Barnes & Noble gift card.

description

And I’ll add the newest tote bag & T-shirt.
Be sure to include your T-shirt size if you win!
