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.

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!

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

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!?

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.

description

Then we have
Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning
Heat Seeker by Lora Leigh
Illicit Night with the Greek by Susanna Carr &
Sunflower Touches by Cheryl Oblon

description

Lastly, I’m adding in an #RAGT16 tote bag full of swag!
