He moved from Camagüey to Sagua La Grande after the union failed. Loveira also founded the short-lived newspaper Gente Nuevaand the magazine Cauterios.
Exiled to Mexico in 1913, the author spent the remainder of his life traveling between Mexico, Cuba and the United States working as a labor organizer and lobbyist consulting with the United Nations.
His novels include Los inmorales(1910), Generales y doctores (1920), Los ciegos (1922), La última lección(1924) and Juan Criollo (1927).
