Lori Foster's RAGT17--Are You Going?

I’m delighted to be one of the sponsors for the Lori Foster Reader/Author Get Together again this year. Like last year, I’m one of the Barnes & Noble Gift Card sponsors, and this year, I’ll be co-sponsoring the Friday Breakfast with Victoria Danann.

We’ve got two mega-raffle prizes–raffle tickets just $1 each–the proceeds will go to Friends of Animals, a non-profit international advocacy organization working to free animals around the world from cruelty and institionalized exploitation. For a chance to win the centerpiece at your table, wear something animal-themed, like leopard print, mouse ears, cat whiskers…or like me…a t-shirt with pics of our rescue puppies on it that I made at VistaPrint ;)

 

For the first time, I’ll be bringing books to sell at the Saturday booksigning. I’ll be ready with my tablet, chip reader and magstripe reader. I’ll be signing two of my short stories: Ranbow of Destiny and So Others May Live, and will have one set each of the large print editions of my Irish Western Series and my Medieval Trilogy along with Fear Not the Tarot. 

Looking forward to spending time with Readers at RAGT17!

Happy St. Patrick's Day Newsletter Contest

I’ve just sent out my March Newsletter…here’s a snippet to entice you to sign up to see what this month’s contest is all about…

To celebrate one of my favorite holidays, I’m giving away a digital copy of the first book in my Irish Western Series: The Marshal’s Destiny. Fun fact: My heroine is named after my great-grandmother the real Margaret Mary Flaherty.

I was brought up to honor my Irish Ancestry. Every year we’d go up the street to our Grandparents’ house and watch the St. Paddy’s Day Parade on TV in the morning and The Quiet Man in the evening. Back then we had 7 channels–no video or DVD’s yet–but it was guaranteed to be playing on Channel 9 or 11. My grandmother loved watching it with us, instilling a tradition that I’ve taught to our children and now our grandchildren. We wore out two video copies of The Quiet Man. We now have the Collector’s Edition DVD of John Ford’s 1952 classic film…

February Newsletter Contest Winner

Congratulations Mary P. winner of the $50 Amazon Gift Card. 

A huge thank you to everyone who answered February’s question: Who do you love and where did you first meet. And yes, there were some furry-faced, whiskered, wet-nosed someones. The answers ranged from sweet to bittersweet, serious to just plain fun. What a honor to be given a glimpse into your lives.

Since you shared your stories with me, here’s mine…

April 11, 1975, I met the man I fell in love with at-first-sight. Dave was on Spring Break and had come back to help out with the lighting for our High School production of West Side Story. I didn’t make the cut to be in the play, but I wanted to be a part of it, so I signed up to be an usherette.

It really was just like the song…Some Enchanted Evening…whether your favorite version was sung by Rossano Brazzi in South Pacific, or Jay and the Americans–the power of that one glance across the room changed my life forever. This August we’ll celebrate our 38th Anniversary. We’ve been blessed with two sons and a daughter in the middle and have added a son-in-law and two precious grandbabies to the mix–and two dogs we rescued just to add to the chaos.

Everything happens for a reason, and I’m grateful every day that I didn’t get that part in the chorus of West Side Story all those years ago.
