Hi Harleen,

I'm also very excited about Breaking the Rules! We recently announced it will be released early (December 8, 2014).

I decided to continue their story because I didn't feel like it was finished. At the end of Pushing the Limits, Echo and Noah finally feel that there is hope for a future, but they still have some hurts that they need to work out before they can truly be happy. Breaking the Rules follows them as Echo and Noah work through their grief.

After Breaking the Rules, my next novel will be in a new series that releases in spring 2015. It will follow teens who are raised in a motorcycle club.

I would love to write stories for Abby and Logan. I'm not sure what the future holds for the Pushing the Limits series, but I'm crossing fingers and toes that I'll be able to continue writing it.

Thank you,

Katie(less)

“The worst type of crying wasn't the kind everyone could see--the wailing on street corners, the tearing at clothes. No, the worst kind happened when your soul wept and no matter what you did, there was no way to comfort it. A section withered and became a scar on the part of your soul that survived. For people like me and Echo, our souls contained more scar tissue than life.”
Katie McGarry, Pushing the Limits

You mean the world to someone.

Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.

When you make the biggest mistake ever,
something good comes from it.

When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look.

Always remember the compliments you've received.

Forget the rude remarks.

So if you are a loving friend, send this to everyone on your list including the person that sent
it to you.
Tonight, at midnight your true love will realize they like you.

Something good will happen to you between 12 in the morning and four o'clock pm
tomorrow, it could be anywhere . Get ready for the biggest shock of your life

If you break this chain YOU will be cursed with relationship problems for the next ten years.
Send this to fifteen people in fifteen minutes !!

Make Someone else's day! Help get a smile on someone's face! Help someone out! remember
that your loved

F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
