I’ve learned something through this blog series about my awesome launch team. I surround myself with amazing encouragers. These women are honest, don’t get me wrong. But they’re on the team because they like what I do, and apparently because I found gals who know how to make me want to keep going with their constant streams of encouragement.
Today’s team member is no different. Hailing from the deep south, Lori has been such an integral part of the team, I had no idea she was such a newcomer—just a year with us! Wow!
Note: links in this post may be affiliate links that provide me with a small commission at no extra expense to you.
Now, Lori didn’t tell us much about herself, but I believe she’s a tax gal (as was another of our members) or CPA or something, so tax season gets a bit rough for her to join in, but she’s always interacting. On social media, all her pictures have beaming smiles. I just know I’d love hanging out with her.
About her spare time… you know, when not tallying up deductions and expenses, Lori says:
My spare time-I love to read, take pictures, read, spend time with my family, travel, and read while I travel!!
And about travel she added:
I have been able to travel a lot but the coolest to me probably has to be Paris-I loved it! (Although Niagara Falls always takes my breath away!)
Me, I’ve never been to either, but #3 daughter has. She loved it! And if I could choose which place to go, Niagara would win without a contest!
When she said:
I’m thankful for the creativity God gave you to write and the ability and imagination God gave to me get lost in books!
I kind of figured out why she joined the team, her:
I chose to join the team to get to know you and help however I can and be able to read your books!
…made that crystal clear in case there was ANY doubt. Hee hee.
Like we said, she joined back with the…
Ante Up! Launch. Then I helped you with Front Window and Christmas stalkings and Christmas Embers. (So how many have you had since then?)
I also did some memes for you on a few books and had fun finding quotes for you to use! I have loved your books and never thought in a million years we would come in contact and get to “know” each other through social media!
Of course, like all my team, she has a lot of favorite authors including:
Karen Kingsbury and Wanda Brunstetter and Janette Oake just to name a few!
But she wasn’t exactly helpful with the whole “Which book are you most looking forward to?” question.
Which of your books am I NOT looking forward to? With each one I finish, I can’t wait for another one to follow!!
Well, one can at least hope this means she’ll be sticking around for a long time.
But, she definitely took sides! Her answers?
Alexa or Madeline: Alexa
Mac or Luke? Luke
Keith or Joe? Joe
Kaye or Cassie? Cassie (okay, that threw me. Lori’s a decluttering
Wynnewood or Legends of the Vengeance? Wynnewood
Lori is a curious gal, though. She asked:
If you couldn’t be an author what would you dream of doing?!
I think I’d want to be a publicist. (Ashley is cracking up now). No, seriously. I LOVE helping authors. One thing I’m most passionate about is helping authors get their books in front of the eyeballs that are searching for just that kind of book. I’d love promoting other people’s work. It would be FABULOUS
Well, that’s Lori… she’s seriously a lot of fun and keeps our conversations lively. I don’t know what we’d do without her (okay, so that’s true of everyone, but hey. This is her turn), but it sounds like I don’t have to find out. She sounds like she’ll be sticking around for a while.
So, if y’all (throwing southern lingo in there to endear her to us even more) would pray that I manage not to offend her, that’d be fabulously appreciated.
And stay tuned. Rebekah is up next in the Meet the Launch Team series for the release of Will Not See! Squeee!
P.S. For the curious:
Lori is not the obnoxious reason this post has a pathetic title. It’s because my brain couldn’t come up with anything that wasn’t… yeah. Pathetic. I mean, “Meet Lori from the Launch Team” is rather boring. And that means I’m bored. And if I’m bored, I don’t want to write. So…
One obnoxious title to amuse me into finishing. Done. See you later with the deets on Rebekah!
