Interview & Giveaway with Katie McGarry * Dare You To *

Today I have a wonderful giveaway for you all with a few questions Katie was wonderful enough to answer on the blog today. One winner will win a copy of Dare you to suppiled by Harlequin Australia. The competition is Au only. Big Thank you to Morey Media for the copy for this giveaway .

Ryan lowers his lips to my ear. "Dance with me, Beth."

"No." I whisper the reply. I hate him and I hate myself for wanting him to touch me again....

"I dare you..."

If anyone knew the truth about Beth Risk's home life, they'd send her mother to jail and seventeen-year-old Beth who knows where. So she protects her mom at all costs. Until the day her uncle swoops in and forces Beth to choose between her mom's freedom and her own happiness. That's how Beth finds herself living with an aunt who doesn't want her and going to a school that doesn't understand her. At all. Except for the one guy who shouldn't get her, but does....

Ryan Stone is the town golden boy, a popular baseball star jock-with secrets he can't tell anyone. Not even the friends he shares everything with, including the constant dares to do crazy things. The craziest? Asking out the Skater girl who couldn't be less interested in him.

But what begins as a dare becomes an intense attraction neither Ryan nor Beth expected. Suddenly, the boy with the flawless image risks his dreams-and his life-for the girl he loves, and the girl who won't let anyone get too close is daring herself to want it all..
Interview with Katie

Who designed the covers?

My publisher designs my covers and I think that they are absolutely amazing! From the colors to the design to the models they choose—I’m in complete and utter awe

How many books do you intend to have in this series?


Right now I’m finishing up revisions for Isaiah’s story, CRASH INTO YOU, which is scheduled to be released in December 2013. I have a few other characters from the PUSHING THE LIMITS universe who are pulling at me to write them, but for now I’m focusing on Isaiah.

What was the hardest part of writing your books?


My characters are often raw and are going through very emotional times in their lives. In order for my characters to have the intensity I’d like them to portray on the page, I have to place myself in their shoes. It’s often a dark place to be and that can be very emotionally draining.
