Giveaway & Interview with Amy Gregory!

Holly: Hi Amy! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Amy Gregory: Well, let’s see…I have lived in Kansas all my life.  I married my high school sweetheart and we have three fantastic, but incredibly busy kids.  I love to write, read and bake.  And I have an off-the-wall sense of humor that often gets me in trouble, but makes for great dialogue in my books.

Holly: When did you realize that you would like to write and publish a book?

Amy Gregory: I always knew in the back of my mind I was missing something.  A creative person my whole life, I just couldn’t put my finger on it until a year ago.  I had this recurring dream that wouldn’t leave me alone.  I started writing it down and the next thing I know it was this series that was so obviously my destiny.  I didn’t want it to just sit, so I decided to brave the unknown and try to get it published.

Holly: Can you tell us a little bit about your book Carter's Treasure, book one in your Racing to Love series?

Amy Gregory: Molly and Carter are from the same world—racing.  He’s speeding toward thirty and starting to feel the loneliness of having traveled almost his entire life to do a sport he loves.  She has also spent her years traveling, but purposely kept herself shut off from the world.  Molly has pain buried deep, along with the memories.  It isn’t until she meets Carter that she can begin to heal.  

Holly: Which came first for you, the characters or the plot?

Amy Gregory: The plot, for sure.

Holly: Do you think you may ever go into another genre?

Amy Gregory: No.  I truly love a love story and it has to have a happy ending.  There is no way would be happy writing another genre such as suspense or mystery.  If I couldn’t be happy writing it, I can guarantee the work would not be good at all.   

Holly: Is this the first novel you ever wrote or just the first published?

Amy Gregory: I was very fortunate.  This is my debut.  I found a publisher that saw something in my work and was willing to give me a chance. 

Holly: What was your inspiration for this novel, or the series in general?

Amy Gregory: The premise is based on pro motocross racing, something dear to my heart, and I have racing in the background as each of the characters finds love.  Each book has life throwing the characters for a loop and ultimately having to do whatever it takes to hang onto the love they have found.

Holly: When do you expect the next novels in this series to be published?

Amy Gregory: Jesse’s Soul is set for release on January 3, 2013.
Eli’s Honor and Alex’s Destiny will both be released in 2013 as well.

Holly: How many books do you expect in this series?

Amy Gregory: Racing to Love has four books in total. 

Holly: Can you tell us some of your latest news, what are your plans for 2012?

Amy Gregory: I’m getting ready to go into edits with my publisher for Jesse’s Soul, and figuring out artwork for that cover.  I’ll finish writing Alex’s Destiny in the meantime and then gear up for Jesse’s release in January.
Holly: Do you have anything you would like to say to your readers?

Amy Gregory: I want to thank everyone that has spent the money and taken the time to read my debut!  I hope you’ll join me as the story continues.

Random Quickies!

Holly: When do you prefer to read?

Amy Gregory: Any chance I get, but I’m so bad!  When I get into a book, I can’t put it down and then everything else around me suffers! 

Holly: Penguins or bunnies?

Amy Gregory: Penguins

Holly: Fall or summer?

Amy Gregory: Fall

Holly: Paranormal to read or Fantasy?

Amy Gregory: Paranormal



They continued to walk back toward the pits, but he stopped when they were in the darkened hallway, just before they would have rounded the corner and been seen.

Molly’s heart sped.

He was still holding her hand, but turned to face her as he placed his other hand on her waist. She sucked in a breath when he stepped forward. Her first instinct was to be anxious, to cower back, but something in those ice blue eyes told her she didn’t have to be afraid.

When he had leaned in to kiss her when they were sitting on the track, she’d panicked. And then when he had started to move away, she’d panicked again—for a different reason entirely.

Those flip-flopping emotions were about to drive her crazy.

Now, in the dimmed corridor, Molly closed her eyes to catch her breath and to search for a decision. He’d been rubbing his thumb on her waist, but his movements stopped when her eyes dropped closed. The soothing strokes didn’t continue until she finally reopened her eyes and dragged her attention up his chest and past his Adam’s apple. She continued up until she locked her gaze with his. When she offered him a hesitant smile, he began stroking her again with a warm smile on his lips.

Staring down at her, he let go of her hand and skimmed the back of his over her cheek. She felt her heart thundering, her pulse racing when she ran her hands up his chest, feeling each and every rippled muscle. She’d never purposely touched a man like this before. Sure, she’d felt Brody’s muscles when she’d smacked him for one reason or another. Or when trying to push him off of her after he’d wrestled her to the ground being an ornery brother and all. But this? This was foreign.

Her eyes were back on her own fingers, taking everything in. She stopped at his heart and could feel it pounding hard beneath the soft cotton t-shirt.

“Just so you know…” he started in his slow, sexy voice.

She could tell he was waiting for eye contact again before continuing. “Yeah?” she whispered.

“I’m going to fall in love with you.”

Blurb:
From the outside, Molly West had everything, beauty, brains, and a career she’d retired from not once, but twice.  Being in the limelight and in a sport that was male driven, she was often surrounded men.  She ignored first the boys, and as she got older, the men.  Unfortunately, they were all the same, all after one thing, and she had absolutely no use for them.  Her cold shoulder and patented not a chance in hell look were usually enough to get her point across.  Occasionally, she had to resort to her sass—and her brother.

Molly had no plans in changing what was a perfectly good system. That is until she walked into the pits.  When she stood toe-to-toe with the sex in jeans, she knew right then and there that the man her adoptive mother always told her was out there, was now standing right in front of her.

Carter Sterling had traveled the racing circuit since he was a boy.  He’d heard all the old standbys, <i>She’s out there somewhere, love comes along when you least expect it.  Good things come to those that…</i> Yeah, he’d heard them all.  The last place he expected to meet the love of his life was on a pro track.  All she did was smile, and he knew, looking into her sapphire blue eyes, Molly West was his.  Forever.

If it was only that easy.  From the moment he laid eyes on her, he had a gripping feeling in him.  An overwhelming need to protect her.  A girl he’d just met.  Carter had learned a long time ago that gut feelings are almost never wrong.

Molly now held his heart in her hands, but it was going to take a lot more than just love to protect her from the past she thought she’d buried a long time ago.




Amy Gregory leads an incredibly active lifestyle in Kansas City with her husband and their three fantastic kids who keep them running in three very different directions.  When she’s not rushing her oldest daughter to tumbling, her youngest daughter to music lessons, or sitting track-side watching her son practice motocross, she’s taking the few minutes in between to scribble the next pages in her Racing to Love series.

When asked, “When do you have time to write?” Amy Gregory giggles.  “In bits and pieces,” she says. 

Amy is known for her snarky, off the cuff sense of humor, which you’ll find shining through in the characters she’s created.  Her debut novel, Racing to Love, Carter’s Treasure, is set for release June 7, 2012.

I’ve spent my whole life trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, and now I’ve finally found it. – Amy Gregory
