Hello lovelies! Please bear with me while I make the transition back from WordPress to Blogger. I need to go through and insert images and do some more tweaks.

Bare It All Blog Tour - Q&A with Lori Foster

Having a total fangirl moment right now. Do you know how freaking excited I am to have the one and only Lori Foster on the blog today???? When I got the opportunity to hop on this tour, I was squeeing with delight. After the interview there will be a giveaway for a copy of Lori's Bare It All!! And if you want to read my take on the book, scroll down for the review. The time has come for you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!

How did you come up with the title for you new book, BARE IT ALL?

The hero’s name is Reese Bareden, and back during his school days he got caught – without his towel – in the locker room by a bunch of cheer leaders. They dubbed him “Bare It All Bareden.” Now, the reason why the cheerleaders were sneaking in the locker room to get a peek… that’s something you’ll have to find out by reading the book!

Do you you listen to anything when writing? If so, what kind of music?

Yes! LOVE my playlist. I have a lot of Kid Rock on there. He’s my fave.

Also KORN. Lots & lots of KORN. Some Marilyn Manson. Cage the Elephant. Nirvana.

I have a few artists where I like only one song – like “Rumour” by Adele, or “List of Demands” from Saul Williams.  Overall I have around 200 songs on my playlist.

How did you come up with the idea for your book?

No idea. The ideas are just... there. I’m so amazed by authors who can teach this stuff, because it’s impossible for me. I’ll be minding my own business (often working on a different book) and bam! I get hit upside the head with characters who want on the page – or sometimes they just show up on the page without even introducing themselves first – and sometimes that’s not enough for them. They want their own books too!

It’s almost magical to me. I could never dissect the process or explain it.

It just is.

Once the characters are there, THEY tell me what the idea is. They lead me through the plot, sometimes page by page – although sometimes they tell me the whole story right up front.

What are you reading right now?

“The Best Man” by Kristin  Higgins. It’s delicious. But I’m reading it slowly because I don’t allow myself to read it except for when I’m on the treadmill. See, I’m trying to con myself into getting a little more exercise. So far so good. I spend 20 to 30 minutes a day (minus weekends) on the stupid torturous device. Only the awesomeness of the book is making it possible. This is my first Kristin Higgins book – recommended to me by my Facebook followers – and wow, does she ever weave a wonderful tale! I’m hooked.

What are you working on next?

That depends on how long it takes me to finish my current manuscript – which will be book 4 in the “Love Undercover” series. If I finish it early enough, I’ll start a new L. L. book, meaning more urban fantasy and more graphicgore. If it takes longer to finish, then I’ll jump into the next romance single title.

  3. I LOVE Lori's books!!! My favorite is Trace.


  4. Great interview! I am getting frustrated by the lack of fun reading time and the fact that I don't have book 3 in the Edge of Honor series, but I do know who Alice is and I'm excited to read her story.

  5. Ok. So that's a SUPER hard question for me because I seriously can't pick just one! I've been an Lori Foster fan for years & have read all of her books. I really love the Buckhorn Legacy series & The Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series a lot. But Love Bites was adorabletoo! I just can't pick one! Lol. Thank you for the great interview & giveaway. LF is awesome to her fans & I love how much she interacts with us on Facebook. She rocks!!!

  6. OMG Book 3 in the Edge of Honor series was freaking awesome!!!! I was super happy to see a connection between the two books.

  7. I think my faves are the Buckhorn series and Edge of Honor series. I'm almost positive my family was neglected while I was reading them. LOL

  8. Gaele, prepare to become addicted to her. I have loved every single books of hers I have read!

  9. I really liked Trace's story too but I think Dare is my favorite. Of course that whole series is amazing so they are all great reads. :)

  10. I just started reading Lori since late last year. I just had a feeling that once I started reading her, I would want to read every single one of her books. I wasn't wrong! I started with the Buckhorn series and they are definitely one of my faves. And of course next I read the Edge of Honor series and I LOVED that one. I love romantic suspense and was hooked. I have read some others too but I agree, those are my special ones she has written. :)

  11. I love the SBC Fighters series, it's hard to choose a favorite among them all. But if I had to choose, I'd say the first book in the series, Causing Havoc was great. What is not to love about a hero who goes all out to protect his sisters?

  12. I have read lots of Lori's books! I LOVE her books! and I'm looking forward to reading this one!! My faves that's hard to answer...I love the Men Who Walk the Edge series, the Visitation series and the Buckhorn series...and many others....basically all the ones I have read are my favorite!

  14. I have never read any of Lori's books, but this looks so interesting that I think I'm missing out on something good.

  15. LOL Lori I love the playlist! I wouldn't have guessed some of those but that's pretty awesome. The book was great too!! Can't wait for the next one :)
