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!

Books this week include autographed Under Pressure & ARC of Hard Justice from me.
Also including Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning,

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.

description

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…
If your name is posted as the winner, be sure to send your t-shirt size with your information.

Happy Book Release Week!!
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!

It’s been a busy week with promo for Hard Justice & I’m also trying to finish up Close Contact, which is Miles Dartman’s story. You met Miles in the Ultimate Series, and now his story will be the 3rd book in the Body Armor Series, coming out in late November of this year.

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
Under Pressure & and an ARC of Hard Justice
*ARC is Advanced Reader Copy*

Next is an #RAGT16 tote bag full of fun goodies, including
Heat Seeker by Lora Leigh.

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!

Thankful Thursday, March 9, 2017!

We made it through registration week for #RAGT17. Whew! It went fast! There’ve been a few issues with hotel rooms (for one thing, we ran out of rooms!) but we’re working out the kinks as we go – and we DO have an overflow hotel.

Remember, if you didn’t get registered but are in the area, both massive BOOKSIGNINGS, Friday June 9th and Saturday June 10th, are FREE to attend and open to the public.
(It is the only part of the event that’s open – for everything else, a namebadge proving registration is required.)
You can see the full, very amazing list of attending authors here: http://readerauthorgettogether.com/about/#authorlist

We’re now less than 2 weeks from the release of Hard Justice, the next Body Armor Series book! This is Justice & Fallon’s story & I’m hopeful readers will enjoy it. If you read it, please do let me know!

I’m also finishing up Close Contact, the 3rd book in the Body Armor Series, which is a story for Miles Dartman. A story for Brand Berry will be last. (I should have their covers soon! Can’t wait to share.)

For this week’s #ThankfulThursday I’m spotlighting my good friend and talented author, Jules Bennett. She has a new release in The Monroe Series, Lost in You coming out in April.

I thought it’d be fun to do a category book + a single title from both Jules and me. Different length books, same author voice!

From me you’ll get autographed copies of Under Pressure, my most recently released single title & Impetuous, my first published book, originally as a Harlequin Temptation. This is a new reissue cover, but it’s the same book. ::smile::

description

From Jules Bennett you’ll get autographed copies of Lost in You, a new single title releasing in April & Twin Secrets, a Silhouette Desire.

description

For extra fun, I’m also adding in an #RAGT16 Tote Bag full of great swag and goodies!

(Contents of bag may vary)

And finally, the newest #ThankfulThursday reader can grab my most current T-Shirt design. Isn’t it pretty?

Thankful Thursday, March 2, 2017!

Yesterday was the start of registration for #RAGT17 and holy smokes, it was insane! Awesome insane, that is.
We opened at 1pm and by 4:30pm we’d surpassed our 500 attendee max. I always take some extras because of cancellations, and we added more to a waitlist (especially for the limited author spots). The available attendees spots were gone in a few hours. 🙂
I love that so many readers and authors enjoy the event!
Stay tuned for more info on that, but please know that both booksignings will be open to the public. If you’re in the area, come by and get a book signed by me(Lori Foster), Karen Marie Moning, Lora Leigh,Jill Shalvis, Dianna Love and many, many more! You can see all the amazing authors attending here: http://readerauthorgettogether.com/about/#authorlist

No matter what else I have going on, I’m always happy to celebrate #ThankfulThursday with you. All of my readers are special to me, and I’m very grateful for each and every one of you!
