Music Blog Tour Spellcaster by Cara Lynn Shultz: Q & A with Cisco+ Giveaway

Happy Birthday SPELLCASTER! I'm glad you are finally out in the wild now after Harlequin and Cara Lynn Shultz released you yesterday. And I am very happy to be a part of the SPELLCASTER Music Blog Tour. Love the series and music. Read the Q & A with Cisco, listen to his song and enter for a chance to win a copy of SPELLCASTER and an iPod nano below!

Q & A with Cisco

1) What did you think the first time you met Emma and what do you like best about being friends with her?

I met Emma on her very first day at Vincent Academy. Kristin started mouthing off and immediately, I thought, "Great, new girl will either be a sycophant for Kristin, or she'll be terrified of her." Instead, Emma gave Kristin attitude, and it made me laugh. I liked that she had a smart mouth. After I got to know Emma, I found her to be non-judgmental, incredibly loyal and in possession of an even smarter mouth than I'd guessed. She's brutally funny. I mean, she makes me laugh, and I'm hilarious. :)

2) Aren’t Emma and Brendan a cute couple? You as cupid who arranged their first real meeting that night of your boyfriend Gabe’s concert, do you think that anything could come between their love? Like a horde of ravenous cheerleaders, the newest video game or let’s say… an ancient curse?

They're so cute it's a little nauseating. I've never seen Brendan act like this around anyone. After we hung out at the Met, he started getting really flustered around me. He would start talking, then randomly bring up something from that night, leading me to think he's about to ask about Emma, and then he'd pull back and not say anything. She threw Brendan for a loop. She still keeps him guessing. In terms of things coming between them, well, Brendan and Emma seem pretty solid and work through their issues together. So hoard of ravenous cheerleaders… eh, not a threat. Video game… hmm, she'd probably play it with him. Ancient curse? Yeah, it would probably take something on that level to cause any serious issues.

3) What’s the best thing about dating a musician?

It's a well-established fact that musicians are hot. You think the guys in LMFAO have groupies because of their perfect good looks? Let me answer for you: Hell to the no. Talent immediately ramps up someone's hot factor. So, apart from the innate hotness all musicians possess and I get to enjoy, I've learned appreciate music in a different way. For example, I've seen how much pressure is put on drummers during concerts. If they screw up, just a little bit, it throws the whole band off. Drummers really are the backbone of the band, don't listen to anyone who tells you otherwise.

4) If you could wish for anything in the world, what would it be?

I'm a real douchebag if I don't say world peace, aren't I?

5) If your life was a playlist, which songs would be on it and why?

LMFAO, "Sexy and I Know It." :) Nah, I'm just kidding. Um, it would be a really big mix of music. Here are some songs I've found as anthems throughout the years: Florence and the Machine "Heavy in Your Arms." Beyonce "I Was Here." DJ Khaled "All I Do Is Win." Lady Gaga "Edge of Glory." B.O.B. and Hayley Williams "Airplanes." But my anthem has always been Muse's "Uprising." This is my go-to song, any time I need to be energized or inspired.

Finding your eternal soulmate - easy.

Stopping a true-love-hungry evil - not so much…

After breaking a centuries-old romantic curse, Emma Connor is (almost) glad to get back to normal problems.'s not easy dealing with the jealous cliques and gossip that rule her exclusive Upper East Side prep, even for a sixteen-year-old newbie witch. Having the most-wanted boy in school as her eternal soul mate sure helps ease the pain-especially since wealthy, rocker-hot Brendan Salinger is very good at staying irresistibly close....

But something dark and hungry is using Emma and Brendan's deepest fears to reveal damaging secrets and destroy their trust in each other. And Emma's crash course in ├╝ber-spells may not be enough to keep them safe…or to stop an inhuman force bent on making their unsuspected power its own.

After 5 years of marriage, my husband started acting weird and going out with other ladies and showed me cold love, on several occasions he threatened to divorce me if I dare question him about his affair with other ladies, I was totally devastated and confused until an old friend of mine told me about a spell caster on the internet called Dr. ILASHE who helped people with relationshipS and marriages problem by the powers of love spells, at first I doubted if such thing ever exists but decided to give it a try, when I contact him, he helped me cast a love spell and within 48hours my husband came back to me and started apologizing, now he has stopped going out with other ladies and he’s with me for good and for real. Contact this great love spell caster for your relationship or marriage problem to be solved today via email: or Call or WhatsApp: +2347055064262

  17. It's awesome and amazing. My name is Tony Orela am from the United States Getting my husband back is what i least expected and could never imagine. I and my husband have been married for five years and we have been living happily but all of a sudden he changed completely and turned away from me but i never knew what was going on, and i tried to ask him but he refused to tell me what the problem is, and as time went on he sought for a divorce. I was so worried and confused. During my search for a way out, a friend of mine who had similar problem told me about a great spell caster called Dr Uzoya who helped her with her situation. I never use to believe in spell casting in my entire life because i never thought it will work but i tried to give this man a chance and to my greatest surprise Dr Uzoya got me a positive result and he was able to get my husband back to me. After the spell caster did his work, i discovered that my husband fell so much in love with me unlike before. This spell casting isn't brain washing but he opened up his eyes to see how much i love and needed him. Now i am a happy woman again and I don't know how am going to thank Dr Uzoya so i am using this opportunity to tell anyone having similar problem to visit him on his telephone number is +1(301)909-8775
