This morning I'll be taking my son to his school where he'll get his school schedule and locker assigned, while I get the fun job of filling out forms :) Lucky me! School doesn't start until September 5th, but today is for all the 8th graders *gasp* to come in and get special instructions.

My fingers are crossed he gets the guitar class he wants. It's a year long class where the kids are taught all about the guitar, its history, how to play different types, read music, and more. While he took 4 weeks of lessons over the summer, this goes much more in depth. I think he'll have a blast, so I sure hope he got it!

In less than a week, Under a Warlock's Spell will be out! My fantasty erotic romance will be available August 29th from Samhain Publishing.
Blurb -

ISBN: 1-59998-091-6
Length: Category
Price: $4.50
Genre: Romance/Fantasy

Minna enjoys her life in the village, working hard and filling her nights with the passionate embrace of her soulmate, Derik. She has more then she ever imagined, until her world collapses. In her time of need, she is unaware that the one's closest to her covet her most.

Derik, a master craftsman, loves his work and his beautiful Minna. His days are filled with thoughts of the woman he loves, laying beside him, until the day he is captured and cursed. With a warlock manipulating his moves, he fights to hold onto his one desire.

An evil warlock has desires of his own. Blagden will kill anyone that gets in his way, regardless the price. His lust for power and greed makes him unstoppable. With his potent amulet he controls the minds of others, beginning with Derik, by turning him into a bloodthirsty monster. It is only the start of the twisted plot Blagden has weaved. As his attention turns to Minna, there are no holds barred. He knows she will be his.

Minna is given the power of shape shifting to aid in her search for Derik. Against all odds Minna must risk it all and bring Derik back to where their passion runs wild.

Can love survive in the darkest of times, when it is miles away and held hostage by a sinister force of evil?

Okay lovelies, I better go start my day. I hope yours is fantastic!


Tempest Knight said...

Oh I hope he gets the guitar course too! I love guitars! I used to play electric guitar in a rock band, then I almost majored in classical guitar (missed 2 classes to get the diploma). I wish I had a course on them when I was your son's age. I've gotten 100% in everything.

Okay as for the sexiest food someone has ever fed me... PIZZA. Okay, I know nobody thinks pizza is sexy, but it's to me. I LOOOOOOOOOOVE pizza. When I'm eating it, every mouth-watery bite is like having an oral orgasm. *lol*

Liddy Midnight said...

Gee, either it's time to get my eyes checked again, or my mind's in the gutter. Again. LOL Instead of, "What is the sexiest food you'd want someone to feed you?" I read, "What is the sexiest guy you'd want someone to feed you?" ROFLMAO! And I had to stop and think about it.

Mistah Midnight would not be pleased by that! Don't tell him, okay?


Loribelle Hunt said...

Good luck to your son Ann! My kids went back to school a couple weeks. I was so glad lol.

Sexiest food. Hmm, that's something I'll have to think about. ;)

Jenn on the Island said...

Looking at him, I'd say the sexiest food he could feed me is a steak.

Why a steak?

Nothing sexier than a nice big piece of meat...

Karen Erickson said...

My son started school a week ago and he's learning to play the drums. Aaah! Amazing how loud those drumsticks are on a tiny practice drum pad!

That guy is hunky. Sexiest food? Jenn's comment cracked me up. Nothing sexier than a big piece of meat.....


Ann Cory said...

Tempest - I'm excited to say that YES he got the guitar class :) He's going to have a blast! He immediately wanted to learn guitar after watching School of Rock, lol, one of our favorites :)

I couldn't agree more - pizza is sexy AND orgasmic :) We're easy to please! Umm, to a degree ;) lol

Ann Cory said...

Liddy - you gutter girl - I love it! lol. I won't tell Mistah Midnight - I promise ;) We gals gotta have our fantasies though, lol

Have a great weekend sweetie!

Ann Cory said...

Awww, the sweet Loribelle. Love your pic - you're totally cute. I'm serious!

Yes, he got the guitar class. I was prepared to fight for it, lol.

Ann Cory said...

Jenn is naughty on the island. A big slab of meat eh? I'll make sure your guy serves you that big slab of meat on a silver platter ;) lol

Ann Cory said...

Karen - you've got to have nerves of steel if you can handle drums - I bow down to you ;) lol.

Isn't he HOT - that guy is inspiring to my muse, lol.

Jenn is naughty. I think pizza is the sexiest for me, with strawberry dipped in chocolate or whipped cream as second. Actually the guy could feed me anything and I wouldn't complain, lol.


Y said...

Oh, I have to agree with you on the strawberries and cream -- yum! Now, that's sexy. ;)

Glad your son got into the guitar class, too. And UNDER A WARLOCK'S SPELL sounds terrific! :)

Have a GREAT weekend...

Monica M. Martin said...

Hey Doll :)Just wanted to wish you a fabulous weekend. I hope everything went well with your little darling.

Hugs, M.

Stacy Dawn said...

Good luck to your son on school!

Ooooh, definately strawberries dipped in melted chocolate...even better if it drips *wink*

The revamping of your group sounds cool...expect an email soon!

Jan Springer said...

Hey Ann,
