Thankful Thursday, June 29, 2017!

Amazing that we’re already knocking on the door of July! This year seems to be flying by. I plan to enjoy the 4th of July celebrations here in the U.S. with family and friends visiting at the lake. What are your plans?

July 25th brings the release of Worth the Wait, the 2nd book in The Guthrie Brothers Series, which is Hogan and Violet’s story with a secondary story from Sherriff Nathan Hawley and Brooklin Sweet. I hope everyone likes the characters as much as I did.
If you haven’t pre-ordered your copy yet you can here: http://lorifoster.com/books/worth.php#order

Also, if you haven’t read Don’t Tempt Me, the first book in The Guthrie Brothers Series, now is a great time because it was just released in mass market paperback. (It was already available in trade, hardcover, digital & audio.) You can order your copy here: http://lorifoster.com/books/tempt.php#order

On to this week’s #ThankfulThursday, a time to say Thank You to all the amazing readers who take time out of their day to visit with me on Facebook. 🙂 This week I’m giving an #RAGT17 goody bag filled with lots of books and swag!
The books include: autographed copy of Under Pressure by me.
Sweet Little Lies by Jill Shalvis,
How To Sleep With The Boss by Janice Maynard,
Mike’s Way Back by Amy Gregory,
Rescuing the Bad Boy by Jessica Lemmon &
Tested by Magic by Jasmine Walt.

Thankful Thursday June 22, 2017!

::Shew:: Finally feel like I’m caught up from #RAGT17! This year was absolutely amazing and I can’t begin to thank all the incredible sponsors and volunteers who made this event possible. We’ve also had so much interest in the 2018 event that we have most of our sponsor positions filled. How fun is that?
We’re still looking for a few meal sponsors, and discretionary cash donations are always accepted. You can see info about #RAGT18 here: http://readerauthorgettogether.com/about/#info

I’m so close to finishing Fast Burn, but I lost a little of my momentum after being away from my desk for so long. Luckily these characters grabbed me and pulled me back in, so now I’m back on track. Fast Burn is the 4th and final book in the Body Armor series and releases April 2018!
Speaking of releases, we’re now in countdown mode for Worth the Wait, the 2nd book in The Guthrie Brothers series. It releases July 25th. Hogan and Violet were a hoot to write and I look forward to you meeting them. Fingers & toes crossed that you enjoy them as much as I do!

Now let’s head into this week’s #ThankfulThursday, which includes a bundle of books from #RAGT17, starting with an autographed copy of Hard Justice from me.
Then we have:
The Billionaire Bachelor by Jessica Lemmon,
Too Hard to Forget by Tessa Bailey,
So This Is Love by Barbara Freethy,
Courting the Cowboy Boss by Janice Maynard &
A Mansion, A Drag Queen, And A New Job by C.C. Dragon

description

I’m also incuding an #RAGT17 “First-Timers” Bag from Wendi Zwaduk, Jocie McKade & Cheryl Dragon with swag from Melanie Jayne, Sam Cheever, C.C. Dragon & Lori Foster.

Lastly, I’m adding a $10 Barnes & Noble Gift Card, along with a lot of other fun swag from #RAGT17, including rack cards, bookmarks and the extra bonus of a Worth the Wait sampler.

Thankful Thursday, June 15, 2017!

I’m finally catching up again after last week’s #RAGT17. It was a huge, busy, productive success!
For those that may not know, as fun as the event is, we also raise money from our raffles and book sales for several worthy causes.
This year we donated $22,500 to the One Way Farm, a local home for abused and abandoned children; $1500 to the Animal Adoption Foundation, a no-kill animal shelter (plus all proceeds from A Buckhorn Baby go directly to the shelter); and a percentage of book fair sales (still being tallied) will go to the Conductive Learning Center of Greater Cincinnati, a school for children with spina bifida and cerebral palsy.
I’m always amazed by the generosity of the reader and author community that we’ve built with this event. Granted, the setup and execution is exhausting, but when it’s over I’m always anticipating the next year.

Just so you know, I have some of the very limited PRINT copies of A Buckhorn Baby left over from the event. (It’s digital everywhere else!) If you’re interested in getting your own print copy, check out this post and find out how you can get your own.

Now that we’re back from the event and getting on track again, we’re jumping right into #ThankfulThursday.
This week I have awesome goodies from #RAGT17, starting with an autographed ARC of Worth the Wait from me.
We also have:
Sweet Little Lies by Jill Shalvis,
All I Want Is You by Toni Blake,
The Billionaire Bachelor by Jessica Lemmon,
Always His Earl by Cheryl Dragon.
I’m also including a Sam Cheever fan, Monette Michaels hand sanitizer, C.C. Dragon ear buds, pens, bookmarks, and lots of other fun swag, all in an #RAGT17 “First Timers” bag from Wendi Zwaduk, Cheryl Dragon and Jocie McKade.

Thankful Thursday, June 1, 2017!

I had a fantastic weekend with family celebrating Memorial Day with a grill out and a few boat rides. I always feel so peaceful when out on the water. It truly relaxes me and helps me decompress. 🙂
Of course, I also shared my gratitude to the brave soldiers who gave so much to protect our freedoms. The true meaning of Memorial Day is so very important.

I’ve been crazy busy finishing work for this year’s Reader & Author Get Together, or #RAGT17 as we like to call it. We have huge boxes of books, as well as all of the amazing swag that authors have donated, so that each attendee will get a stuffed goody bag.

Remember, the 2 huge booksignings are FREE and Open to the Public on Friday June 9th & Saturday June 10th from 3-5pm. Visit Lori Foster, J.R. Ward, Karen Marie Moning, Lora Leigh, Jill Shalvis, Darynda Jones and many, many more. You can see the full list of 72 attending authors here: http://readerauthorgettogether.com/bookfairs/#friday

I’ll probably have to skip the scheduled giveaways for next week (I’ll be at the event!) but I’ll try to do some random giveaways on site, so keep checking the Facebook page!

For this week, let’s talk #ThankfulThursday! I wouldn’t be able to host #RAGT each year if not for all of the amazing readers, so THANK YOU.

I’m giving a HUGE stack of books this week for #ThankfulThursday, starting with an autographed copy of Jude’s Law!
Then we also have the following:
The Harder You Fall by Gena Showalter
First Time in Forever by Sarah Morgan,
All I Want Is You by Toni Blake,
Tycoon’s Delicious Debt by Susanna Carr,
Hot SEAL by Lynn Raye Harris,
Here, Home, Hope by Kaira Rouda,
Cinder’s Rising by Jenika Snow &
Sunflower Touches by Cheryl Oblon

I’m also including an autographed tote bag from Karen Rose with lots of swag.
