Spellbound Blog Tour Stop

We are SUPER excited to be part of the Kismet Blog tour for Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz!  I got to meet Cara at BEA and we even were at GMA Lady Gaga Concert together and didn't even know it! So it's very cool to help showcase her debut book here at PTB! (You can also find Cara on Facebook and Twitter)

To keep up with all the Spellbound tour fun (and all the official rules for the CRAZY huge giveaway we'll talk about later), be sure to stop by Spellbound Blog Tour page.

For our tour stop, we get to interview Brendan (check out his Facebook page and you can also find him on Twitter), the hunky love interest from Spellbound.  We hope you enjoy meeting him!!! And stay tuned after the interview to learn how you can win cool stuff!

PTB: Hi Brendan - thanks for stopping by the blog today, we're excited to meet you!
Brendan: Cool, thanks for having me.

How would you describe yourself?
Part-time pirate, full-time ninja. No, I’m just playing. Um, I don’t know. I’m normal, I guess. New Yorker. In high school. Play basketball. DJ. Live downtown. Ninja boss.

What are the first 3 words that came into your mind when you first met Emma?
Well, when I first heard her, she was sitting behind me, and I thought “This girl’s funny” because she was making fun of Orangina (that’s what I call Kristin) to her face. When I turned around, I just thought “She’s really cute.”

What song best describes Emma?
This is hard. There are a lot of songs that remind me of her. The Cure’s “Just Like Heaven.” New Found Glory’s “Too Good To Be.” Blink-182’s “Josie.” But for the ultimate song about her? I might have to take it old school with Billy Joel, “She’s Got a Way.” My dad was playing some Billy Joel and the lyrics just kind of hit me.

What song best describes yourself?
Lonely Island, “Like a Boss.” ;) Probably Frank Sinatra’s “My Way.” Love Sinatra. My FB profile pic for a long time was me standing on Frank’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Whats your favorite thing to do in NYC?
I like going to concerts the most. I like taking Emma places, too, showing her my favorite parts of the city. I like going to Yankee games.

Whats the craziest piece of info you've found while researching your family history?
It’s all a little crazy. The Salingers have been in New York forever. I found out a relative played minor league baseball. That was kind of crazy.

Whats your favorite thing about Emma?
Hard to say one thing, to be honest. One day it’s her sense of humor, the next day it’s how sweet she is, the next day she’ll blow me away because she’s really smart. And, I won’t lie, she’s gorgeous. I mean, have you seen my girlfriend? She brings the hotness. I’m a lucky man J
