Echo and Noah's Engagement

March 8, 2016 at 5:08 PMKatie McGarry
 
Hi everyone!
 
Several weeks ago, Harlequin TEEN announced that when you register your preoder of Walk the Edge, you will receive a bonus Echo and Noah scene.
 
Today, I finally get to announce that this bonus scene involves Echo and Noah's engagement.  Originally, I was only going to write a short scene, but Echo and Noah deserved so much more than that! Plus, once I had the opportunity to be in Echo and Noah's heads again, I couldn't keep it to one chapter alone. I consider this a bonus short, short story.
 
This is exclusive content only for people who preorder Walk the Edge. If you would like to read Echo and Noah's engagement story, titled The Proposal, please register your preorder of Walk the Edge here.  Echo and Noah's engagement story is open internationally. The contest involving appearing in the next Thunder Road novel is for US and Canada (excluding Quebec) only. 
 
 
And here is the beautiful cover of the Proposal....

Walk the Edge, release March 29, 2016
 
One moment of recklessness will change their worlds 

Smart. Responsible. That's seventeen-year-old Breanna's role in her large family, and heaven forbid she put a toe out of line. Until one night of shockingly un-Breanna-like behavior puts her into a vicious cyberbully's line of fire—and brings fellow senior Thomas "Razor" Turner into her life. 

Razor lives for the Reign of Terror motorcycle club, and good girls like Breanna just don't belong. But when he learns she's being blackmailed over a compromising picture of the two of them—a picture that turns one unexpected and beautiful moment into ugliness—he knows it's time to step outside the rules. 

And so they make a pact: he'll help her track down her blackmailer, and in return she'll help him seek answers to the mystery that's haunted him—one that not even his club brothers have been willing to discuss. But the more time they spend together, the more their feelings grow. And suddenly they're both walking the edge of discovering who they really are, what they want, and where they're going from here.

Answering Questions

February 8, 2016 at 11:36 AMKatie McGarry

Hi everyone!

I am answering my backlog of emails due to me being head down in my writing cave and a lot of the same questions are popping up:
 
1. Is Breaking the Rules (Echo and Noah #2) available in print? In the US, Breaking the Rules is an ebook only. The UK did publish a print version of BTR. You can purchase it at The Book Depository. They offer free international shipping. Click here for the link.
 
2. Will Chasing Impossible (Abby and Logan) be available for purchase? My publisher has told me that Chasing Impossible will be available for purchase as an ebook in summer of 2016.
 
3. Will Take Me On be available in paperback format? I don't know. That decision is up to my publisher. I hope and pray that it will be, but that decision is out of my control.
 
4. Is Crossing the Line available in print? Yes, it is included as the bonus novella in the hardback version of Take Me On.
 
5. Will Red at Night be available in print? No. Red at Night is an ebook only but it is available as an ebook for free!
 
Thank you for all the questions and for reading my books!

Echo's Birthday Giveaway

January 11, 2016 at 3:06 PMKatie McGarry
 
Happy Birthday Week to Echo Emerson!
 
To celebrate, I'm giving away a signed paperbacks of Pushing the Limits and Breaking the Rules, a signed hardback of Nowhere But Here, and a Nowhere But Here poster. 
To enter go the Rafflecopter below. This giveaway is international.
 
 
From Pushing the Limits:
 
In a lightning fast move, Noah placed both of his hands on the brick wall, caging me with his body. He leaned towards me and my heart shifted into a gear I didn’t know existed. His warm breath caressed my neck, melting my frozen skin. I tilted my head, waiting for the solid warmth of his body on mine. I could see his eyes again and those dark orbs screamed hunger. “I heard a rumor.”
“What’s that?” I struggled to get out.
“It’s your birthday.”
Terrified speaking would break the spell, I licked my suddenly dry lips and nodded.
“Happy Birthday.” Noah drew his lips closer to mine; that sweet musky smell overwhelmed my senses.  I could almost taste his lips when he unexpectedly took a step back, inhaling deeply. The cold air slapped me into the land of the sober.
He ran a hand over his face before heading toward the tree line. “See you soon, Echo Emerson.”
“Wait.” I began to pull off his jacket. “You forgot this.”
“Keep it,” he said without looking back. “I’ll get it from you on Monday. When we discuss tutoring.”
And Noah Hutchins – girl-using stoner-boy and jacket loaning savior – faded into the shadows.
