Thankful Thursday, October 19, 2017!

Who’s loving fall?
I am… sort of. I much prefer summer, but fall is so pretty I can’t help but enjoy it. I look forward to the coming holidays, even while dreading the colder weather. :::brr…::::

Last week I told you that my son, daughter-in-law and new granddaughter are returning home from South Korea. They’ll be here in just a little over a week and I’m super, SUPER excited. (For those of you who don’t know, my son traveled to South Korea years ago for a teaching position. He met Hanna, they dated, married, opened a school of their own… and then had my precious granddaughter. :::Love!:::)

description

Once they’re here, I’m going to take a hiatus on my two biggest giveaways – MysteryMonday and ThankfulThursday. I want to wallow in the holidays with my sons all together. 🙂
Note: I’ll have one more of each to finish out October, so be sure to enter them!

In 2018, we’ll get started again, so stay tuned.
In the meantime, I’ll still have smaller giveaways… swag, books, holiday surprises – they just won’t be as grand as MysteryMonday or ThankfulThursday.

So until then…#ThankfulThursday starts this week with an ARC of Close Contact from me. (ARC is an Advanced Reader Copy. The book releases November 28th.)

Also including copies of
Sweet Little Lies by Jill Shalvis,
Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning &
Deadly Silence by Rebecca Zanetti.

description

Then I have a fun tote bag full of great swag including rack cards, a fan, magnets & a Worth the Wait sampler.

description

Finally, a “Love, Read, Repeat” T-shirt.

description
(I have T-shirts in sizes M, L, XL, 2XL & 3XL. Please let me know which size you’d like if you win.)

*NO ENTRY REQUIRED!*

#ThankfulThursday is easy! One name is randomly drawn from the LIKEs on my Facebook page and that person gets the featured goodies.
Fun, right!?

Make sure to check back on my FB wall – https://www.facebook.com/lorifoster – around 8:00pm EST on 10/19/17 to see if your name is posted!

Thankful Thursday, October 12, 2017!

Hello all you awesome people. 🙂
I have some news – my son, daughter-in-law and adorable granddaughter are returning home from South Korea in just a couple of weeks. Yay!
I’m super, SUPER excited. I visit with the baby online daily, but I’ve yet to hold her, cuddle her, kiss her little face. For those of you who don’t know, my son traveled to South Korea years ago for a teaching position. He met Hanna, they dated, married, opened a school of their own… and then had my precious granddaughter. :::Love!:::

They’re moving to the states now, and I couldn’t be happier.
Once they’re here, I’ll also be mega-busy making up for lost time. So… for a while, likely through the holidays, my #ThankfulThursday giveaways will be smaller (therefore less time consuming) and I’m planning to stall the #MysteryMonday giveaways, too.
We have a few more weeks until then, so be sure to enter both while you can. In 2018, I’ll bring them back in one fashion or another.

Now understand, I’ll still have multiple giveaways… swag, books, holiday surprises – they just won’t be as grand as those two special giveaways.

But until then…
#ThankfulThursday this week contains a BIG stack of books. 🙂 Starting with an ARC of Close Contact.
An ARC is an Advanced Reader Copy -the book doesn’t release until November 28th. This is your chance to read it early!

We also have:
Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning &
Heat Seeker by Lora Leigh.

description

In a 2nd stack of books, we have:
Wild Kisses by Skye Jordan,
Mike’s Way Back by Amy Gregory,
Tested by Magic: A Baine Chronicles Novella by Jasmine Walt,
On A Night Like This by Barbara Freethy &
Summer Mixer by multiple authors!

description

Finally, we’re including an #RAGT17 tote bag provided by Paige Tyler & Monette Michaels.
The bag is full of fun swag!

Thankful Thursday, October 5, 2017!

It’s been such a devastating time for so many. My heart, thoughts and prayers go to all who are struggling right now. Please stay strong.

To everyone who has donated time, money, or even prayers to those affected, thank you. I’ve found that romance readers are some of the kindest people, with the biggest hearts.

If you haven’t been affected, count your blessings, hold your loved ones close, and cherish every moment.

In good times and bad, I value all of you so much. I hope you know that. I’m one of the luckiest people ever – in part because of all of you. Without you, my writing would be a hobby instead of a successful career. Thank you all x 10.

That’s what #ThankfulThursday is all about, of course – my opportunity to show appreciation.

This week we’ll start with a stack of books. First an ARC of Close Contact, the next book in my Body Armor series, due for release 11/28.
(ARC if an Advanced Reader or Reviewer Copy!)

Then we have:
Sweet Little Lies by Jill Shalvis,
From Best Friend to Bride by Jules Bennett,
Crossing Hearts by Kimberly Kincaid,
Tested by Magic: A Baine Chronicles Novella by Jasmine Walt,
On A Night Like This by Barbara Freethy, and
Summer Mixer by mulitiple authors.

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

Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning &
Heat Seeker by Lora Leigh.

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.

Has school started for you yet? I know for some it already did, and for others it will soon. I always used that first day to get caught up on… everything!
It also gave me a little more time to read. If that’s the case for you as well, and if you haven’t yet read Worth the Wait, maybe now’s your chance. If you do read it, let me know what you think! I’ve got my fingers & toes crossed that you enjoy it.

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.
