Emerald Talisman Audio Book Tour starts TODAY!

Welcome to the Emerald Talisman Audio book Tour hosted by Jessica at Confessions of a Bookaholic and co-hosted by Lisa at Life Bound by Books.

To be normal, sixteen-year-old Julia Parker would shed her empathic gift in a second. Life has been difficult since her mother's mysterious disappearance ten years earlier - an event she witnessed, but can't remember. Julia's situation becomes more complicated after a near death experience from a blood thirsty stalker. As high school students go missing it is clear there is a connection to her own experience--past and present. Someone has to stop the madness and a chance encounter with a creepy psychic foretells that only Julia is the key to stopping the madness, but it may require the life of the one she loves.

Have a listen here: LISTEN

I'll be hosting a scavenger hunt for this tour. After each blogger puts up their post, I'll put up a question on my blog related to the post. Answer it in the comments and you'll be entered to win the grand prize.... (they'll be easy, don't worry)

$25 Gift Card (your choice), swag pack, book bag with a signed book of your choice and a Talisman Necklace!

Each comment will count as an entry, so you can jump in and play at any time. You'll only need a US address for me to ship the goodies to. Also, be sure to post on these lovely ladies blogs as well and thank them for participating!

P.S. if there's a typo in this post or something WAY wacky... it's because I'm suffering from jet lag from a fun Florida trip I just returned from. I'm going to share all about it in my next post with Kristie Cook!

  3. Awesome! XD Def getting this for my bday!

  4. Very fun! I enjoy: character interviews (these provide a fun window into the authors behind the scene mind :), giveaways are always wonderful, reviews from the blog host are OK, author interviews are great (ie: what inspired you to write this particular storyline?, how do manage your time?, what are some of your favorite books?, etc.), and Face Book parties! I love the opportunity to chat live and ask questions and see what other fans have to contribute, too. Thanks for the time put into this audio book tour and congrats!

  5. I love the giveaway's, it gives me a chance to read a book sometimes that I may not have chosen, and become a fan of a new author..and its exciting to win something too :)

  6. Giveaway posts are my favorite.


  7. Giveaways are great if you win but I like interviews. I love seeing how each writer comes up with their ideas & what they do to prepare to write.

  8. Sorry, I forgot to leave my addy.

  9. I love the reviews but the personal journeys are real and a joy to read.

  10. I personally love the interviews because you learn a lot more about the book by knowing the characters' or the authors' answers.

  11. I love it all! The interviews, reviews and giveaways. With the interviews & reviews they help me learn more about the authors and open my eyes to new books. Giveaways are awesome because I love getting things from my favorite authors for me to show off to my friends! email:

  12. My favorite posts are the giveaways because I love entering to win prizes and I love to see what the prizes are, they always seem so cool.


I love to hear from my readers! Feel free to comment!
