TARNISH BLOG TOUR: Audiobook teaser + Giveaway

Today, I have the pleasure of kicking off the TARNISH Blog Tour hosted by ROCKSTAR Book Tours. Last year I was blown away by Katherine Longshore's debut novel GUILT of which I immensely enjoyed by listening to in audiobook format.  Now, that TARNISH is nearing it's release I cannot wait to listen to it despite already having read it. So, it is with a big grin of excitement that I share with you a snippet of the upcoming TARNISH audiobook. 

Check this out on Chirbit  
What do you think? Sounds amazing, right? The reader for TARNISH is Leslie Bellair and she does such a fantastic job that it makes you want to pre-order this audiobook with a quickness that would rival superman.

Leslie Bellair is a voice-over artist, stage and film actor, trained singer, and certified speech-language pathologist. Her voice can be heard on the iPhone application "Diss Crazy!", the online game "Back to the Cubeture 2", various audiobooks published for Audible, Inc., Carina Press, and Oxford Press, as well as the short animated Christmas movie "An Elf's Story", premiering on CBS this November. Her professional musical theater work in the Atlanta area has greatly contributed to the characterizations and versatility she brings to the voice-over mic.

I hope that you have enjoyed this sneak peek of audio awesomeness and that you check out the TARNISH giveaway and the other blog tour hosts located at the end of this post.

Anne Boleyn is the odd girl out. Newly arrived to the court of King Henry VIII, everything about her seems wrong, from her clothes to her manners to her witty but sharp tongue. So when the dashing poet Thomas Wyatt offers to coach her on how to shine at court—and to convince the whole court they’re lovers—she accepts. Before long, Anne’s popularity has soared, and even the charismatic and irresistible king takes notice. More than popularity, Anne wants a voice—but she also wants love. What began as a game becomes high stakes as Anne finds herself forced to make an impossible choice between her heart's desire and the chance to make history.

Katherine Longshore grew up on the northern California coast. At university, she created her own major in Cross-Cultural Studies and Communications, planning to travel and write. Forever. Four years, six continents and countless pairs of shoes later, she went to England for two weeks, stayed five years and discovered history. She now lives in California with her husband, two children and a sun-worshiping dog.
